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

Measuring Spoons

One more snowy scene from yesterday.
⛄     ⛄     ⛄
It has turned cold so all the snow is still around and this morning we were
getting a little more.
It was 12 degrees and windy and the snow is covering icy patches
so I thought it best not to go for my morning walk
and get my steps inside today.
⛄     ⛄     ⛄
We took a ride down to LaVale and returned the Fitbit.  ๐Ÿ˜Š
10 degrees warmer down in LaVale and no snow!!
While we were there we stopped in an antique shop that we
have been to a few times before to look around.
They have quite a lot of crafty and country things too.
I saw these cute measuring spoons and to buy.
I seem to have started a collection of measuring spoons.
I'll hang these under the kitchen cabinets like the other two sets.
I picked up these garden flags at another store.  The flags in the garden
from last year are destroyed.  I never did take them inside for the winter.
 We picked up a flavor of ice cream that we've never tried before and
I'm looking forward to having it later.
It sounds great if you like chocolate.
Deep Dark Chocolate
The container says:
Robust dark chocolate ice cream with melt-in-your-mouth chocolaty slivers

A happy day to you.

  1. Those are the cutest measuring spoons!

  2. Those measuring spoons are really cute! That ice creams sounds good. Hope you enjoy it. Brrr 12 degrees...

  3. That photo is wonderful...and melt in your mouth chocolate slivers---YUM!

  4. I love the measuring spoons and as for that ice-cream, you can't go wrong with chocolate.

  5. ...cold, windy and snowy here today.

  6. Hi Happyone, Your eye for taking excellent shots out in nature is not affected by weather! Those are some great snow scenes. I really can’t pick a favorite, but if I must, perhaps it is the last one. Trees near and far and the deep blanket of snow … just a great shot! In earlier posts: On Thursday, Love the shot of the geese, tree, and fields beyond. On Wednesday, The Blue Skies. On Tuesday, Sure didn’t know there were 293 ways to make change for a dollar … fascinating! Thanks for sharing your blog!

  7. Hello, pretty snowy scene. I heard more snow is coming next week. Your new measuring spoons are so cute and I love the garden flags. The ice cream sound delicious. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

  8. Love dark chocolate, so I'm thinking I'd really like that ice cream. Such cute measuring spoons. Y'all are having some crazy weather, too... but that snow is so pretty. Hope you have a blessed SONday.

  9. My goodness! You might as well just move to Maine! I never would have thought that Maryland would have weather like this. Stay warm.

  10. Hi Karen, love your first photo, very pretty. Parts of Ontario are to get quite a snowstorm Monday night into Tuesday. We are to get just an inch or so of snow, but we are cold too!
    Your new measuring spoons are so sweet!
    Hope you enjoyed your ice cream.

  11. That first picture looks just the same as here!

  12. Delicious sounding ice cream! Pretty snowy scene. My son's did not get their predicted snow - only flurries. Cute measuring spoons. I love roaming around antique stores! Have a wonderful Sunday.

  13. Your measuring spoons are adorable, Karen! Our snow is almost all gone now when it comes to the grass, but it seems to be holding on to the trees. Preparing for the next big snow coming our way. :)

    I like your flags...especially the one with the cows. It brings back memories of my days being raised on a dairy farm.

  14. Oh my, your snowy pictures put my little snow flurries pictures to shame. :) It is so beautiful there! I have a weakness for measuring spoons too and have several sets in a little pitcher. None as pretty as those though.

  15. I do like your measuring spoons, and the Deep Dark Chocolate ice-cream sounds tasty.

    All the best Jan

  16. Im looking for a handmade pottery set of measuring spoons. I seen some like these. They are preciois!
    We had a small snow this morning.

  17. You have had some weather extremes this year! At least we haven't had to deal with snow, just warm a few days, cold a few days, repeat. Cute measuring spoons!

  18. I can hardly believe my eyes that there's so much snow in your first shot!!!
    I just love those cute measuring spoons and the ice cream sounds delicious - if it's chocolate, count me in!

  19. Love that beautiful snowy picture that you took!!! The measuring spoons set looks so nice and unique:)

  20. What a wintry scene!! Lovely but very cold.
    Your measuring spoons are so cute!
    Stay warm Happyone :)

  21. Those are really cute measuring spoons! I've never seen anything made by Mason before, except canning jars. That's a fun collection to start!
