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

Another puzzle finished

๐ŸŒป     ๐ŸŒป     ๐ŸŒป
This morning it was 16 degrees, so a bit colder than yesterday!!
I bundled up though in all my many layers and stayed nice and warm.
My toes were a bit cold though by the time I got back home.

Started out walking on the roads behind my house again and then went
over to the post office to mail a card.  My youngest grandson Japhy
has a birthday coming up next week.  Hard to believe he will be 11.
Walked around town and both of the cemeteries.
This is one of my turn around places up the street past the library,
a circle at the end of the road.
 No Kathy again.  She must be out of town.  Haven't seen her since
just before Christmas.
As I was headed home I saw Lisa just starting her morning run.

Walked 6.2 miles

By mid morning there was no more sun and a few snow flurries were seen
and by the afternoon it was snowing.  Just a few inches expected.

Another day at home.
A bit of house cleaning got done
and I finished the puzzle today.
It was a fun one to do and my favorite so far this year.  1000 pieces.
 Ken left to help out at the church and will be there through suppertime
so I'm on my own for supper tonight.
I'm going to make myself some blueberry pancakes. 
I often have that when I'm by myself.  Ken doesn't like breakfast for supper.
I will splurge and even put some whipped cream on top.

Then I'll do a little more reading.

A smile from me to you.

  11. I REALLY like that puzzle! I could spend hours in a book store! Thank you for sharing the picture of it, Karen.

    We ended up with maybe 3-4 inches of snow yesterday. I'm guessing you probably got a bit more than that.

  12. You have inspired me to pick up a puzzle today. A great winter activity, I think.

  14. Sam will be 11 next week. Had not realized that he and Japhy are so close in age...maybe the same day! Hope that he has a very happy day.
