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

I took this picture of the pine trees in my back yard yesterday getting home from my walk.  The sky was dark over the trees and the sun was shining behind me.  It made the green trees all look reddish brown.

This morning it was 29 degrees with a slight breeze and snow flurries.  I didn't get started walking until 8:00 and went first to the post office to drop off a card in the mail slot. Then walked around town staying off the main road through town to stay out of the way of the snow plows and besides the sidewalks don't get shoveled.  So I stick to the side roads.
I didn't see anyone else out walking but I did see these footprints in the snow and followed them up to the cemetery.
I didn't see deer or rabbits but knew they were around because of their prints in the snow.  Also saw bird prints.
Stopped to write my name in the snow along this wall.
Walking past the library I saw my friend and Librarian Susan drive up to work.  We had a little chat before she went inside and I walked back home.
Walked 6 miles.

We went out and did a couple errands over at Grantsville after lunch.

I've been making good progress knitting the blue baby sweater.  I've finished both the front and the back and have started on the sleeves. 
The other day when we were shopping I bought these overalls, shirt and shoes for the baby too. 
Most Mondays we go to Brenda's for half price pizza but today we stayed home and I made Chicken Parmesan, with a side of spaghetti and a salad.  

Hope your Monday was a good one and you found yourself smiling every so often.
happyone : )

This is one of my favorite sayings.
Whenever you go,
no matter what the weather,
always bring your own sunshine.

  1. That will be one more well-outfitted baby! You are making great progress with the knitting. Chicken Parmesan sounds scrumptious! Smiles were here today. Tonight we did FaceTime with our oldest daughter. That's always good for smiles. We have had two days of sunshine in a row! Maybe a third one tomorrow!

  2. I like the photos from your walk and the trees are beautiful. The baby outfit is cute. I love chicken parmesan . I love the quote too. Have a happy day!

  3. I love that you write in the snow!! I love doing that :) have a great Tuesday!

  4. Your third picture reminds me of a Christmas card with the snow covered red barn in the distance.
    Cute how you added your personal touch to the wall :).
    The baby outfit is adorable. The shoes are the finishing touch. He is going to be one well dressed baby.
    Chicken parmesan sounds very tasty.

  5. Your Monday sounds like a nice relaxing day, Happyone. I loved the picture of your name written in the snow on the wall! Congratulations on the progress on the sweater!

    Oh...I had a good Monday this week also. If you stop by you will see how the Lord chose to answer those prayers you've been praying. :)
