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

Sunshine today : )

 ☀     ☀     ☀     ☀
Too cold to walk outside again this morning and there was light snow falling so I walked three miles in the basement.

It cleared up fairly quickly and the sun came out and it was a beautiful day though it did stay cold.  I went outside after lunch when it warmed up to 10 degrees and shoveled the driveway again.  When that was done I didn't feel like going inside yet so I walked down our road a little ways.
And then I walked around the yard in the snow.  I like walking on new snow where no one has walked before.  Here's my footprints in the front yard. : )
I was outside 2 1/2 hours and wasn't cold at all.  What a difference no wind and the sun makes.  Since I got to go outside I didn't walk the other 3 miles in the basement.  It was great being out in the fresh air and sunshine. : )

Inside the house I did some reading and knitting.  A nice evening at home doing the usual.

Hope your day was sunny and bright.

Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness.

This is the last day  : )


  1. It was a nice day. I know when I went out to the mailbox this afternoon that it didn't seem cold at all...thanks to the sunshine and lack of wind! Are you ready for another storm for the weekend?

  2. Sunshine and fresh snow make the world so pretty.

  3. You must be young at heart! Trampling patterns in the snow like a little kid!

  4. No wind plus sun makes a world of difference! It sounds like you had a really good day!

  5. My hubby said the same thing about this morning, when he left for work - what a difference with sunshine and no wind! Different story tonight. We're getting the snow that has somehow evaded our area up until now.

    I hope you have a nice weekend!


  6. I like the shot of the pine tree covered in snow.. It is nice when the sun is out and there is no wind.. We are expecting more snow today.. I hope it is not much, have a happy weekend!

  7. I like the idea of walking in the snow and creating a design. You almost came up with a flower ... did you notice that? :-) Have a good weekend.

  8. It must have felt great to get outside and "bask" in the sun.
    It looks like a winter wonderland out there. Great photos you captured.

  9. Aw...You made a design in the snow! You are so special!
