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 walk

⛄     ⛄     ⛄
Well, we are getting some snow and it was a beautiful walk today with the snow
falling down all around me.  I would stop every so often just to listen to the quiet. 
So very peaceful.  Loved being outside this early snowy morning.

15 degrees.  I wore my snow boots with ice grippers and never slipped at all.
I'm glad a had my snow boots on because I then was able to walk
around the cemeteries and the ball park in the deeper snow because
it is wasn't cleared.  My feet would have gotten wet in the snow sneakers.
It takes me a bit longer to walk in boots than in sneakers.

Walked behind my house and then to the post office.
Then it was off to both cemeteries and the ball park loop.
Walked around them a few times staying out of the way of the snow plows.
No people about just, me the snow plows and the school buses.
Pictures today along my walk.

Another day at home.
Ken was outside with the snow blower clearing the driveway today.

My turn is coming up again to bake the cookies for the kids
at church in a couple of weeks and I baked cookies for them.
Still have to bake another batch.  I baked them ahead and then
just freeze the cookies.  ( I need to have 120 cookies)

I've been working on the next baby blanket and made some more
weave-it squares.  Just 14 more squares to make.  I've been sewing them
up as I make them.

I read some too and will probably read some more this evening.

A smile from me to you.

  1. Hi Karen, what lovely photos! I like walking in the fresh snow too. You are right, it is so peaceful. Love your quote today.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. What lovely snowy pictures - glad you were able to enjoy a walk. It's funny how snow is so peaceful ...

    Enjoy your evening and have a good weekend to.

    "A smile from me to you."

    and one returned from me to you too!

    All the best Jan

  3. Your snow pictures are so pretty, Karen. My hat is off to you for your daily walks! I'll look forward to seeing the baby blanket when you get it finished. This was a good day to read a book.

  4. (My daughter brought me a pair of boots today...alas, too small. I hate when that happens.)

    It sure is pretty there in all the snow. Will it last do you think? Even here they are saying that we are swinging back and forth 40° from one day to the next. Right now, it is in a chilly snap.

  5. Now thats a lot of snow! Im crocheting some baby items for a baby shower that supose to happen this weekend but will probably be postponed due to the snow.

  6. We are suppose to have snow here tomorrow, probably not as thick as that I think

  7. WOW, you got a lot, just a dusting here, but darn cold!

  8. Your snow photos are so lovely, I think you're brave to be out walking in it though. It is quite deep.


  9. Love your snowy walk pictures! Just as I imagine winter to be like in your part of the world!

  10. Hello, Karen! Pretty snowy images. My favorite is the first one with the street lights. I am sure your place smells heavenly with the cookies baking. Happy weekend to you!

  11. Hi Karen - I love the snow pictures - it does look cold though. That bookstore puzzled you finished yesterday is great. I love it! That is so nice of you to do all that baking for the children at church. Have a good weekend and I will stop in for another visit soon.

  12. That snow looks lovely, so clean and peaceful (does that make sense?). I enjoy the snow when we get it here but it does cause a lot of disruption as we never know if it will come or not.

  13. Love your snow photos. Here its raining now :-( But I have a book now, sttt ...I am reading.

  14. Your photos are so pretty and peaceful looking! I love the quiet that snow brings. It is getting colder here but no snow in our forecast.

  15. WOW! Beautiful photos. It would be a wonderful time to have a walk in this beautiful snow!
