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 snowy day again

☃     ☃     ☃     ☃
It was 33 degrees and snowy when I left the house at 7:30 this morning.  It was just above freezing so there wasn't much ice around and the snow was pretty slushy.  I almost didn't walk outside but I'm sure glad I did.

I walked up and down the roads around town and around the cemeteries.  Walked around the cemeteries a few extra times because I was out of the way of the snow plows.  Went down to see my horse friends by the Drane House.  This one here saw me coming and stuck his head through the bar.
I managed to take a picture while he gives my hand a sniff. 
A couple more pictures along my walk.

 On the last part of my walk here.  I live up ahead on the left.
I dropped a book off at the library and found a penny and a dime in the parking lot.  I couldn't believe I spotted them there in a tire track.
I walked 6.2 miles.
While I was walking Ken zoomed in and took pictures of me out of the front window as I walked by on the main street. There I go in my orange sweatshirt.

Its been snowing on and off all day and we often stop by the front window to watch it.
Worked a little bit on the latest puzzle but still have a long way to go.  Also did some knitting - started the blue baby hat, and started another book too.
It's been a lazy kind of day but a good one. : )

hope your day has been a happy one.

learn how to receive a blessing
as it to be willing to give one.

Diana - The ice cream carton is 1 1/2 quarts.  They used to be a gallon but a few years ago they started making the containers smaller but kept the price the same.  The ice cream usually costs $4.99 and that is why we get so many when they go on sale.

Eileen - Hagan is our favorite but we like Turkey Hill too and get either when they go on sale.  

Lindy - Sorry, but I forgot to answer your bird question last time.  I haven't seen any Cardinals in the pine trees lately.  In fact I haven't seen any birds around the yard at all and I do keep feeders out.


  1. It was really fun to see things from Ken's viewpoint. =D Your orange jacket shows up very nicely!

  2. Your snow pictures are so pretty, but it looks cooold, especially with the horse sticking its head through the metal bars!

    I had to laugh at your comment about "It's been a lazy kind of day..." I don't think you and Ken ever have lazy days - you're always busy accomplishing something! :)

    Happy weekend -


  3. Another snowy day...and haven't the last few snows been beautiful? I love it!

    Thanks so much for sharing your day. I'll look forward to seeing the puzzle when it is finished, as well as the blue baby hat. :)

    Have a wonderful day tomorrow at church!

  4. I love snowy days like that. Have a great rest of the weekend.

  5. Wow - a very snowy day indeed. Looks so nice and cozy! We went for a walk this afternoon and it was too warm even for a jacket. Enjoy your Sunday. You have inspired me to start another puzzle soon - maybe even tonight!

  6. I love those snowy pictures! :) And I'd love going for walks there, too. The horses are so cute. Good shot on the one sniffing your hand.

    I hope you are having a wonderful weekend :)

  7. The snow changes your pictures of roads around town so much!

  8. That was a beautiful walk. I love the horse sniffing your hand shot. Such sweetness there is in animals.

  9. Every time I click onto your blog I find a photo I think is great. You just do an excellent job with your camera and you definitely have the eye for a good picture. My favorite in todays group is the first one ... it looks like one of those calendar photos. It does seem that you have had a lot of snow lately. Is that normal for your location? I sure wouldn't mind a little more snow out here. I have been meaning to tell you ... remember when you mentioned getting a water flosser machine? It's been a few months ago. That got me thinking I should get one ... wish you could get a commission on it. Anyway, how are you liking yours? I think mine is pretty good ... well, even after brushing my teeth, the water flosser gets a lot of little particles out and that can't be anything but good! It is noisy, though! LOL. Sure enjoy your blog, thanks for sharing. John

  10. Pretty snowy scenes, you are brave to go out walking in the cold snow.. And is that sweatshirt warm enough? I must really be a wimp.. I've been using my treadmill. I love the horses, they are so pretty.. Love the quote. We just tried Green's Chocolate Marshmallow ice cream, very good..Have a happy Sunday!

  11. Love that orange sweatshirt! You would fit right in here in "Big Orange Country.":-) Lovely pictures of your snow. We've still had none here.

  12. You are a bright spot in the winter landscape.
    Loved seeing your visit with the horse.
    How neat that you found some coins among all of that snow.

  13. Thank you for answering my question about your screens on my blog. Now I know I'll have to remove some of mine if I want nice pictures like yours. Do you ever feed the horses anything? As usual, your pictures are lovely. Have a wonderful day :)

  14. There are few things in the universe that I love more than a snowy day :) I am a winter lover through-and-through.

  15. All of your beautiful photos do make me miss real winter sometimes. It's a lot easier to walk here without the snow. I've had a really sore ankle for about a month and it is no worse and no better. It makes walking a little painful. Not sure what I did or how to heal it.


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