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

Puzzle #5

⛄     ⛄     ⛄
 This mornings walk was a windy, snowy one and 18 degrees 
but I stayed warm in all my layers!!  
It was cold so the snow is very light and the wind just blows it
all around.  It snowed all day and we just have a few inches.

Walked on the roads behind my house and around town,
and around both cemeteries.

No Kathy today but I did see another man all bundled up
and out walking too.

Walked 6.2 miles
⛄     ⛄     ⛄
I baked Pumpkin Bread today.  6 little loaves and they will be
given away as little Christmas gifts to people around town.

Wrote out more Christmas cards and I am happy to say that I finished them.
Just have to get to the post office to mail them.

Finished puzzle number 5 and so far this one is my favorite.
It was another 500 piece one.
 I made us some Baked Ziti for supper this evening.

Tonight I'll read for a while,
then watch Netflix and have my ice cream snack,
then knit on my Mom's scarf.
 A happy day to you.

and coming out with only a loaf of bread

  1. Oh my I love this puzzle, so sweet!

    I think we were doing the same thing today, because I too finished writing our Christmas Cards ... all ready for mailing.
    Over the weekend we plan to put our decorations up, not too many but the colour theme is red, such a warm and perfect colour for this time of year. Well I think so!

    Enjoy the remainder of Friday and all good wishes for the weekend ahead.

    All the best Jan

  2. I managed to address all my envelopes. Now all I have to do is sign cards and add my photo and letter to them. Thanks for inspiring me. Have a good weekend.

  3. I got all our Christmas cards done too, as well as a box for our son and his wifw.

  4. Now that is the truth, Erma! It was some brisk here this afternoon with the wind just howling. A day not to leave one's grocery cart unattended in the parking lot for even a second.

  5. Cold indeed but you are so dedicated and it does make you feel good to walk even in the snow!
    Sweet new puzzle finish!
    My hubby must be the one in 3 billion as he'd o in for the loaf and that would be it!

  6. Hello, pretty scenes with the snow. I love the doggie puzzle. It is chilly here in Florida this morning. Your pumpkin bread sounds delicious. Happy weekend to you!

  7. Your walking photos this morning had me shivering but they are so pretty. I certainly admire your fortitude in cold weather to be out walking so early! The puzzle is so cute. What do you do with them after they are completed?

  8. Lovely puzzle Karen, so sweet.
    Our walks for the last couple days have been cold too. Tomorrow might be our last with no snow. Must dig out my boots!
    I love pumpkin bread too. I found a new recipe a couple months ago and really enjoy making it.
    Take care!

  9. I love Erma Bombeck's quotes. 18! You are so dedicated. That is a cute puzzle. I need to get to work on my Christmas cards.
