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

An icy day

It is as I suspected yesterday, ice and no walking for me.  We got an inch or so of snow and then a freezing drizzle.  Sidewalks too icy for walking.
Took the picture from my living room window.
We went to bed late last night and slept in until 8:00!!  That is LATE for me.
I made French toast for breakfast and we have been at home all day.  I read in the morning and after lunch we watched a movie.  It was an old movie from 1956 called The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit starring Gregory Peck.  I had always heard that it was a good movie but had never seen it.   A movie with lots of story lines going on it and they all come together in the end.  It was a long movie, 152 minutes but we both thought it was good.

Not much else going on around here.  Stayed below freezing all day so nothing is melting.
I don't think I'll be walking tomorrow either.

Hope all is well with you today.
A smile from me to you.


  1. Winter came with a vengeance to you. The ice can be so dangerous, so be careful. Have a warm weekend.

  2. Very glad you didn't go out today. Neither one of you. Same here. We did errands yesterday and stayed in today/Sat.

    Even though we only got snow. Because that's bad enough. ,-) And this is slippery weather, even though not a full blown ice storm.

    But this bit of snow will stay around for a while. Especially if it stays so cold. :-)

    "Childhood, catching
    our imagination when it
    is fresh and tender,
    never lets go of us."

    ~J.B. Priestley

  3. That sounds like a cozy way to spend the afternoon. I don't know if I've seen that movie, though I sure love Gregory Peck. I'm all for watching some good vintage movies.

    Our cable is in. Now it was not a good day for a guy to have to climb the pole out there and do that. Ugh.

  4. So far we haven't seen any snow here this winter. Thanks for your smile.

  5. Gosh that looks so cold - I would't like to drive on those icy roads.
