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 walk in the snow

⛄     ⛄     ⛄
I enjoyed walking in the snow this morning.
31 degrees and snowing.
Wore my snow sneakers and put the ice grippers on them.
Probably didn't need them though because the snow was slushy.
Shoes were great and kept my feet dry.
Stayed on the side streets and then walked around the ball park loop,
and the cemeteries a few times.
Tried to stay away from the snow plows.
Didn't see anyone else out walking.
Took lots of pictures because everywhere I looked was so pretty.
Here's a sampling from my walk.

Walked 6 miles
⛄     ⛄     ⛄
Tuesday means bowling day so off we went for a day of bowling.
There were six of us today and Ken and I played the usual three games.
The others stayed for another game.
Three games is my limit, don't seem to enjoy it after that.

Before we left I got supper started in the slow cooker so it would be
ready when we got home.
By the way we ended up staying home last night for supper,
but didn't have spaghetti after all.  Ken made us cheese nachos.

Started another book and this one is really good.
Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens
It is another hard one to put down and I've already read half of it.

Will be reading more of my book later tonight.
I'll be enjoying some ice cream later also. 
What flavor you ask?  Chocolaty Chippity.

Hope your day has been a happy one.

  1. I'm glad you are careful on the ice, K!

  2. Nice pictures! I like your snowplow too!

  3. ...it looks about the same here!

  4. I smiled as I looked through these pictures.I am happy to see that someone else sees the beauty in the snow.Too many people don't.

  5. A very pretty walk in the snow. It sounds like an all around nice day.
    Hope you enjoyed that Chocolaty Chippity. Sounds delicious :).

  6. These are very pretty snow pictures, good enough for postcards I reckon. I love how you get so much joy from walking in the snow.


  7. Hi Karen, looks like we got about the same amount of snow as you did. It was easy to walk in here too.
    Lovely photos as always.
    Have a good day!

  8. I just looked up your book on Amazon. It said it hadn't been released yet???

  9. Hello, your snow photos are so pretty. Chocolate Chip is one of my favorite flavors of ice cream, yum! Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

  10. Your snow pictures are beautiful, Karen. Aren't slow cookers great? I've been using mine a lot for the same reason...having supper mostly ready when we get home from working out.

  11. Like Adam said...."That is a lot of snow!" beautitful captures.

  12. Hi Happyone, Thanks for sharing your neat photos of the snow scenes taken on your walk. Once again you are an inspiration for completing your walk in snowy conditions. I also enjoyed the Barn pictures on Monday’s post.

  13. Your snowy photos are so pretty!

  14. Great photos from your walk! Smart to put stuff in the slow cooker to enjoy when you got home. Love that name chocolaty chippity...now I want some. Have a good evening!

  15. Hmmmm...cheese nachos! Yum. So while you were having a snowstorm, we were having rain and ice. What a right royal mess. ๐Ÿ˜ Your talk of snow sneakers is making me wonder if that's the route I should go. Not having good luck with boots...have returned three pairs already.

  16. This is the beauty of winter. I just can't stay longer outdoor when the cold is too much, would creep my veins. I prefer to stay indoor. You got beautiful photos, I like those snow while falling.:)

  17. Beautiful pictures. Do you ever get cold? Especially, your feet? We're expecting some snow here on Sunday....I HOPE so!

  18. Such lovely photographs ...

    All the best Jan
