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

Baby Sweater Progress

☺     ☺     ☺     ☺
I walked out the door at 7:10 this morning and it was 23 degrees, some snow flurries around and VERY windy.  Flurries stopped and it was cloudy with some sun and later on after I was home there was more sun than clouds.

I planned on just walking 4 miles because of the wind but when I looked at my pedometer I had already walked 5 and by the time I got home I had walked 5.8 miles.

The wind blew the flurries around this little branch and made an arrow.
 I took the picture this morning
but the sign was from Saturday when we had the coating of ice on everything.
Stayed in town so I could change direction often and tried to keep the wind behind me.
I saw one other person out walking a dog. All sane people were inside where it was warm. : )

Just before lunch I walked another mile down in the basement.  Total walk 6.8 miles.

I finished knitting the baby sweater and hopefully it will be completely finished later tonight or tomorrow.  I have to do the neck and then sew it together which for me is the hardest part.  Here it is in pieces.
I did some reading this afternoon too on the first book of 2015. 

The temperature has been dropping and now it is 16.  Wonder how cold it will be for tomorrows walk.

Hope your day has been a happy one and you smiled often.

the baby will have no new bonnet.

Dot -Wow, 90 times, your sister must really know her Bible, but I'm sure she still learns more each time she reads.  I've been reading the Bible through each year for about the last 20 years. 


  1. That little sweater is going to be adorable.

  2. I agree with Ruth, the sweater is going to be adorable and the little booties are precious too.
    Once again I am reminded of what a trooper you are when it comes to walking.

  3. You have had a very productive day! The sweater is precious! You are ahead of me on the 2015 book reading. I'm lagging behind, for some odd reason.

  4. Very pretty pattern on the sweater! Those are some frosty-looking landscape photos - nice scenery. :)


  5. The sweater looks pretty! It was very windy yesterday, you are brave to be out walking in this cold weather.. I have been walking on my treadmill. The photos are pretty, I like the dusting of snow.. Have a great day!

  6. What a Beautiful Sweater!!!! It is supposed to be bitterly cold here today and tomorrow. Stay warm on your walk :)

  7. Such a cute sweater, and I love the soft yellow color :)
    Brr... that sounds like a cold walk, but I'm so glad you went anyway... as I know you love your walks.

    Have a happy day.


  8. Love the baby sweater...such a sweet shade of yellow! And those little yellow booties are ADORABLE! Some little one is going to be nice and cozy.
