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

Out with the ladies

Started walking at 7:10 when the sky was aglow.  A windy cold 17 degrees this morning but nice and sunny with a pretty blue sky.  No ice grippers today.  I walked mostly around town again.  With the wind I thought it would be really windy along the open farm road.  I walked down to Barn Sale Rd and when I got here to the wide open area where it was really windy turned around and walked back to town.
I didn't see anyone else out walking or running, nor any wildlife either.  The cows along Barn Sale were out eating hay out of the big round feeder.  Haven't seen Lone Chicken and Friends for a while now.  They stay inside with lights and hay keeping warm. 

Bus driver number 10 passed me three times and waved every time.  Haven't met her yet.

Enjoyed my walk but it was nice to get home to a warm house.  
I walked 6.1 miles - 11,649 steps.
I found a dime. : )

We've been home during the day doing stuff around the house.

I ordered some rain pants on line from Dicks and they came in the mail today.  I got two pair because they were on sale and I got two for the price of one and free shipping. I should be set with rain pants for years.

This was the evening that the ladies from church met for our Christmas  gift exchange (this is the gift I brought) and time of fellowship.  We met at a restaurant called Dutch's that I've never been to or heard of before.  It was a beautiful place all decorated for Christmas.  There were 15 of us and we had a great time.  I was too busy talking and having a good time to take any pictures. 

Hope you had a great day and you smiled often.

  1. What a nice gift you took tonight! It is always special to receive something that is handmade.

    Do you expect more snow over the week-end?

  2. Your night out with the ladies sounds like a lot of fun. So glad you are finding lots of friends in your new town - and I know that they are all glad you moved in! Sounds like you got a great deal on rain pants! Always good to stay warm and dry. I love this sweet quote today. So true. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. I'm glad you enjoyed your day. You've made a lot of friends in your new home! Have a great weekend. Art

  4. Glad your party was such fun. I've heard of Dutch's. In fact, I have friends who drive there from here when they have a special occasion.
    I'm amazed you're still getting out and walking in the below-freezing weather.
    Looking forward to our visit together. Mary Jo

  5. Wow. That's a great quote. Great. I am going to be using the thought behind that, believe me.

    Sounds wonderful your being out with the ladies. Our night was last night, too, at a lady's home. I forgot completely. I even had my under five dollar gift ready. I am losing it. My mind not the gift.


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
