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 fall in the snow times 3

I thought perhaps I might be able to walk outside this morning but it was not to be.  It was snowing like crazy when I woke up and there was already another 7 inches on the ground.  We ended up getting 10.  So another basement walk.  Finished listening to Rose Harbor in Bloom.  It was pretty good.

We were back outside again today - a repeat of yesterday.  Ken with the snow blower and me with the shovel.
Here is Ken.  I think he got a little carried away.  He not only cleared the neighbors driveway but started on the road too. : )
 I tried walking in the snow and asked Ken to take a picture so you could see how deep it is.
 Then I lost my balance and down I went.  
Nice falling in the snow.  You have a nice soft landing.
 It was hard to get back up and I was laughing so hard that I fell right back in the snow again and then one more time. : )
It was really fun being out in the snow.  This morning when I saw it snowing again I thought, oh no, not more snow, but then I'm glad it did because it was fun being outside in it.

This evening we are going to the Couples Banquet Valentine Dinner which our church has every year.  Since we are new to the church, it will be the first one for us.  It is at a restaurant called Ace's Run which is just 10 miles away.  It should be a lot of fun and we are really looking forward to it.

I hope your Saturday is a fun day.
happyone : )
