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

Visitors at the feeder

A picture from yesterday's walk
๐ŸŒป     ๐ŸŒป     ๐ŸŒป
It warmed up over night and in the morning when I walked it was 37 degrees.
A very light misty rain was falling but it soon stopped and was just cloudy.

No route again just walk all over town.  The icy spots from yesterday 
have all turned to slush.

This is the vegetable and herb garden down by the Drane house.
In the spring it will cleaned up and be growing.
Last year I helped weed it and get it spruced up.
Will probably help out again this year.
While walking I heard a noise and looked to see a whole roof of snow
come sliding down off a barn.  It was cool to watch but glad I
wasn't underneath it.

No one else out again.
I am thankful to be able to be outside walking.
Walked 6.2 miles

Lots of birds out back at the feeders today.
At one time I saw a woodpecker, 2 mourning doves, a blue jay, a few sparrows,
a couple finches, and a crow.
Also visiting were chickadees and cardinals.
Got a picture of the woodpecker.
Didn't realize I got the sparrow too until I downloaded the picture.
Ken did some work up at HT in the wood shop in the morning and I 
got a few things done around the house.

Then after lunch we went out and did a few errands down in Oakland.

A happy day to you.

Update on my Mom.
My Mom has pneumonia now and is not doing so good.  Her heart is getting worse and her body is starting to shut down.  They are keeping her comfortable at this point.
I know that Heaven awaits her and my prayer for her is that God takes her home quickly.


  1. Thank goodness you were not under the roof when the snow came down ...

    Sorry to read about you Mom, saying prayers for you all.
    God bless.

    All the best Jan
