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 lazy day

This morning we had a fresh coating of an additional 4 inches or so of snow and it was 0 degrees so I walked in the basement once again.  I finished listening to the audio book the other day and haven't been back to the library so had no book to listen to.

No more snow today and it was a beautiful sunny day and after lunch it had warmed up to 20 and we went outside around the yard.  Cleared off the driveway and I shoveled the path up to the bird feeders again.
This way the sky was a pretty blue.
 Facing the other direction, the sky was cloudy. 
The sky doesn't look much different than the snowy ground.
Threw some snowballs at what is left of the snowman I made and knocked some icicles off the house.

Back inside the house, I had some hot chocolate and we worked on the latest puzzle.
I also read a little while.
It's been a lazy kind of day.
Supper tonight will be quick and easy.  I'm making quesadillas.

Hope your day in a happy one.

Clouds come floating into my life,
no longer to carry rain or usher storm,
but to add color to my sunset sky.

Today's Three Thankful Things
  1.  A pretty blue sky
  2.  A nice cup of hot chocolate
  3.  Twinkies : )


  1. I love a nice cup of hot cocoa! That is an amazing blue sky. Lazy days are always a nice change so glad you had one to enjoy! Have a great week.

  2. A Blue Sky Day here too! Have you totaled up how much snow you all have had so far this winter?

  3. Twinkies, eh? I haven't had one of those in years and years.
    I'm getting ready to make choc. chip cookies which reminds me of you :).
    Beautiful blue sky in your photo today.

  4. The difference in the sky color from one side to the other is amazing. Poor defenseless snowman, of all "people" to throw snowballs at.
    Lots going on Facebook. Take a look. Mary Jo

  5. Don't you mean Twinkie singular? LOL! I can't imagine your eating more than one. Gosh whatever your weather is seems to be ours; although, today was bright blue skies in all directions.

  6. Have you noticed how much snow is on the roof of the house in the gray sky photo?!!!!!. And...the snow on the ground is almost up to the windows. Wow!

  7. Love the blue sky on a cold, snowy day!!!!! AND--what could be better than a cup of hot chocolate!!!!! YUM.... (I'll pass on the Twinkies though... ha)


  8. Sometimes laziness is indeed required!!!
    The pics look beautiful!!!
    And now I think or actually I am sure you would be craving for spring to come... right?!
