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

Almost balmy : )

Started my morning walk a little later than usual at a few minutes after 7:00.  We got an inch or so more of snow so I walked in the snow again.  It was all the way up to 19 degrees and it felt almost balmy! : )
I didn't walk any regular route but just walked along the paths and around some of the townhouse and apartment complexes because the sidewalks there were shoveled  The first path I came to was snow covered.
Then other paths were I came upon had been cleared.
The stream along one of the paths that I walked along.
Another quiet morning with me and the animals, a few deer, birds, and I didn't see it but smelled a skunk.

Near the end of my walk I saw a dog walker and one man out shoveling snow.  By the time I got home the temperature was all the way up to 24.  No wonder why I was hot when I got home!

Today I took 12,907 steps on my walk.
Sunrise 7:19
Sunset 5:21
We had a good time last night at Toby's.  There were 10 of us all together.  It's a small place and in the round so there are no bad seats.  There was a buffet open for 1 1/2 hours before things got going.  Salads, main meals and then you could make your own ice cream sundae, or have cheese cake or chocolate cake for dessert.  I just had a salad and main meal and skipped the dessert part.  The food was very good.

It wasn't a play but a look back at the singing and dancing from the 40's through the 70's.  The performers were quite good and we all enjoyed the music.  The performers were also the servers so they had a busy time of it.
The sun finally came late morning and we went out and about doing a few errands.

Home now getting a few things done before I have to make the dough for the pizza we are having tonight for supper.  The dough takes 1  1/2 hours in the bread machine.  We have red pepper and garlic for toppings.  Stopped at the library and picked up the movie Christmas Vacation and we will watch it while we eat our pizza.  : )

That's it.
Till next time...........
May you have a happy sunny day.
Happyone : )
Don't walk too far away from the child within you,
and never abandon the sense of wonder
that magnifies the smallest of things
into mountains of joy.

Art - Yes, Ken's retirement is getting close - He's a short timer now, only three more days and a wake up. : )


  1. Sounds like you had a nice evening at the theater - good food and good friends! Pizza sounds like a good idea for dinner...enjoy your Saturday evening and Sunday!

  2. Your evening sounds like something I'd very much enjoy. The servers were the performers? Wow. I'd have enjoyed seeing that, too.

    You know it's been very cold when you think that 24F is warm. =D

  3. Do you know about how much snow is at Happy Trails?

    Your Saturday evening plans sound very good! Pizza and a movie - a very fine idea!

  4. Your saying the servers were the actors reminded me of a trip we took to Nashville when Opryland was in full swing. We had dinner on the riverboat and the servers were also the actors in the evening entertainment. Your night out sounds like great fun.
