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.

A snowy walk

It was 32 degrees this morning and lightly snowing when I walked.  Made for a pretty walk.  I didn't walk any particular route.  Just down sidewalks and through the woods on paths.  I came across a couple of people along the roads but no one at all on the paths in the woods.  It was so quiet and peaceful with the snow lightly falling. I didn't even see or hear any animals. I  was the first person to make tracks on all the footbridges. 

Not much else to say about my walk.  It was just great being out there.
I walked 6.1 miles.

Sunset 5:39
********************
We enjoyed watching The Help last night but of course both of us liked the book much better.  You just can't get to know the characters in a movie like you can in a book.

Thanks RT and Kim for suggesting I watch Downton Abby on the computer.  I found it on PBS.com and will be watching it later today.  : )

I made us French toast for breakfast which is always a treat. 
We went out this morning and did some errands but went farther away then we normally do.  Ken wanted to go to a hobby store.  While we were out that way we stopped in at a Wegmans.  They are building one near our home and it should be open sometime in the spring, I think.  They are nice stores but I don't see why everyone likes them so much.  To me they are nice but really just a big expensive grocery store.

By afternoon all the snow was gone and it just ended up a cloudy rainy day.  Supposed to get really cold tonight so probably everything will freeze.  Hope I'll be able to walk in the morning.

Now we are home for the rest of the day and Ken is playing around with his hobby store purchase and in just a bit I'm going to go and work on my cross stitch.

Hope you are all enjoying your Saturday!
Happyone

    Glad you were able to find DA online. I missed it last night, so will have to get caught up before next week.
    Hope your week is off to a good start.
