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

Another snowy day

I walked in the falling snow around the farm loop this morning and around town too.  It was 25 degrees and just a little breezy.  I wore my new rain pants and stayed nice and dry.
It was beautiful, calm, peaceful and the snow makes it seem quieter than usual.  What a joy it is to be able to get out and take a walk.
I didn't see any one else out.  I had the morning beauty all to myself.
I walked 6.2 miles - 12,292 steps.
Sunrise: 7:30
Sunset: 4:54

The gift I received last night is this snowman ornament that was tucked inside
a cute snowman mug (the hat comes off.)

A nice cozy day at home today.  I had hot chocolate in my new mug and it tasted ever so good.  I added a few marshmallow too. : )

I got some reading done, worked on my counted cross stitch, and finished decorating the tree with tinsel.  Hard to get a good picture because of the glare from the window.

It's been snowing all day with a bit of sleet in there too.  Supposed to turn back to all snow during the night.

I'm off to eat my supper in just a little while.  Ken is making us nachos.  : )

A happy day to you my friends.

Christmas, my child, is love in action.
Every time we love,
every time we give,
it's Christmas.

  1. Your tree is very pretty and reminds me of our Christmas trees when I was a child. We always had tinsel. Your early morning snow scene is amazing. It looks so peaceful.
    Have a good weekend!

  2. Cute mug! Cute ornament, too. Well, I must say that you do a wonderful job with the tinsel. You are obviously very patient!

  3. I've got to get working on our tree! Hopefully tomorrow!:-) Just like Scarlett O'Hara!:-)

    I love your ornament and mug! I'd say a new mug made that hot chocolate taste much better!

    Dale Evans Rogers - a wise woman!

  4. I love the new mug. It definitely would make hot chocolate taste better!

    Your tree is lovely and old fashioned looking. Very nice.

  5. It poured here in Richmond. Your snow is pretty, and I like walking in it, too. Lovely Christmas tree. Art

  6. I love tinsel on a tree. Too bad I can't have that. The first Christmas that I picked tinsel out of my cat's butt made me realize that tInsel and I could no longer be friends. (Sorry for the image, but that is the truth.)

  7. What cute Christmas decorations - I love them. Your tree looks wonderful. Also, you snowy walk looks like it was so nice and peaceful. What a wonderful day to begin the day. Enjoy your Sunday!
