Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Good News

Well, the news is good.  My Mom is cancer free!!  :-)  Thanks again for all your prayers!!

This morning when I woke up and looked out the window there was snow on the ground and more coming down.  It was just snow and no ice so I decided to go out as usual for my morning walk.

The temperature was 32 degrees so it wasn't cold.  I never did see anyone else out walking around the rest of the lake.  It was nice walking in fresh snow that no one else had walked in and being the only person around the lake.  About half way around the lake I was kind of disappointed to see a man come along plowing the path. I took this picture after he passed me.
When I got to the part of the path that leads away from the lake I was once again walking in fresh snow and picked up the plowed path again later on.  The path leading home away from the lake was not cleared either and I saw two other sets of footprints. Never did see who they belonged to though.
I saw two deer and fox and rabbit tracks.
For someone who doesn't like the snow I sure enjoyed walking in it this morning!
I walked 6.4 miles.
 Sunrise 7:20
Sunset 5:21
I did get that ice cream last night though they didn't have any chocolate chip.  I got two flavors in one.  Turkey Hill Twin Mint - Mint flavor with chocolate covered cookie pieces and Chocolate mint flavor with chocolate cookie swirl.  Super good!!  Have you noticed you can't buy a half gallon of ice cream anymore.  The prices go up and the container keeps getting smaller.   What's with that!!!?

Look what Ken came home with yesterday for me. 
York Peppermint Patties!
He knows I love these and put them in his lunch box for me to find.  I'll enjoy one of them for the next four days.  :-)

I'm home for the day in the snow. I will get started cleaning the downstairs, have some lunch, finish cleaning, and then read and knit with what time I have left before starting supper.

Find some happiness in your day today.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone :-)
The most pleasant and useful persons are those 
who leave some of the problems of the universe 
for God to worry about.
