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

A winter day

This morning brought with it snow, a temperature of 10 degrees and wind so I had a basement walk today.  Took the picture out of the dining room window.  You can see how windy it is by the flag blowing straight out.
I listened to Meatloaf (Bad Attitude) again while walking 5 1/2 miles.

It's been snowing on and off all day and we've been warm and cozy inside.
I did go outside for a little while this afternoon to put out the bird seed for the birds  and the one squirrel.  I shoveled a little snow, walked around the yard and got the mail.

Inside the house I worked on my counted cross stitch and put a few more pieces in the puzzle.  We have one sitting out on the table again, but we aren't working on it a lot, just every so often we walk by and put a few pieces in. The puzzle we are working on now has 1000 pieces and the picture is of a whole bunch of junk cars piled high on top of each other.

That's about it for today. 
Hope you're enjoying your Saturday.
happyone : )

Three Thankful Things for Today
  1. Waking up to a winter wonderland
  2. A pancake breakfast
  3. A tootsie roll lollipop


  1. And what flavor was your tootsie roll pop? It makes a difference you know! Must have the same weather system...I should check. It started snowing this afternoon and is still at it. Tomorrow will bring another system with more snow. Fine with me.

  2. Pretty winter day! Good for you, getting miles in whatever it takes. That puzzle sounds hard. Once you get above about 10 pieces, I get challenged. Art

  3. Good way to spend a snowy day. It's been very cold and windy here today. Had a good visit with the family today. Mary Jo

  4. It has snowed here all day too.

    I really like that quote. So very true!

  5. No snow here but cold and windy!!
    That is a lovely winter wonderland :)

  6. I love the snowy picture. Will look forward to seeing your puzzle when you are finished. Ours is also making slow progress - but progress none the less. Have a happy Sunday!

  7. Sally has some Meatloaf on her play list for the wedding, don't know which tracks though. The snow looks pretty, I'm not sure if I would be happy to have snow as then the house gets cold but I love walking in the snow.
    Sorry to read about your fall the other day. Hope you didn't get too sore afterwards.

  8. A very pretty view out your window. I had to enlarge the picture to see the flag.
    Your day sounds most enjoyable.
