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

Walking Outside

๐Ÿ€     ๐Ÿ€     ๐Ÿ€
So nice to get up and not see snow falling from the sky.
14 degrees, no wind and the sun came out.
So nice be outside walking and feeling the sun on my face.

Got a picture of the killdeer by the pond.
Not a very good one because I had to zoom in.
Brrrr he must be cold standing in the water.
 Walked around town, but since there were lots of icy patches I
couldn't walk down all the roads so just walked where it wasn't so icy.
Avoided the main street in town and walked on the side road out of town
and up Sale Barn Road.
Up Sale Barn
At the top
Walking back down
 Back town and walked the roads behind by house and then back home.
No one else out walking.
By the time I got home in was is the 20's.
Walked 6.2 miles

Ken is gone for the day so I'm just puttering about the house.

I got my new Striiv in the mail today.  My old one is still working but I just
wanted to get another for a spare because I'm afraid they are going to stop
making the kind that I like.

It's been a pretty nice day with clouds and sun and I wandered
about the yard a bit
but by supper time it was snowing again.

A happy day to you.

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessing of Saint Patrick behold you.

Jessi -  Welcome and thanks for following. ๐Ÿ˜Š


  1. Nothing like an invigorating walk out in the fresh air! Nice views from the top of Sale Barn .
    Best wishes!

  2. I'm so glad that you were able to walk outside today. I know how much you enjoy that. I think that the killdeer are so interesting to watch...love their long legs. We had several snow showers late afternoon and evening here, but there isn't any accumulation from it. The first time I noticed it was when I was on the treadmill and happened to look outside! Just a bit longer, my friend, and it will truly be spring.

  3. Hi Karen - good to be back in blog last and hear what is going on with you. You really had quite a snow storm. So glad you got a new striiv. I am using a Fitbit now and quite like that. Same basic thing - counting steps. Beautiful pictures of the snow. We are up to about 96 here today, so it is nice to see scenes of snow and cooler weather. Have good weekend.

  4. ...I worked outside this morning, boy was it cold!

  5. Lovely pictures to show from your walk.

  6. Enjoyed walking with you today. It's not as refreshing as being out there with you, but not as slippery either!

  7. Looks like a nice sunny day for you.

  8. So glad you were finally able to walk outside. We have been enjoying sunny, milder weather here the last couple days. Actually walked with no hat or mitts yesterday.
    Love all your photos especially the Killdeer. They are hard to get a photo of aren't they?
    Have a good Saturday!

  9. Glad you were able to get out again. We have rain again with no breaks. Hope you have a nice weekend.

  10. Glad you were able to get out and walk on St. Patrick's Day! MJ

  11. Beautiful snow photos, I know it is so nice to have the roads cleared where you can walk.

  12. You sound so happy to be out walking in 14 degree weather...but then you are the happyone! :) I just don't think I could be out when it is that cold. Your pictures are always beautiful.

  13. Such beautiful photo's you've shared here ...

    All the best Jan

  14. You sure have a beautiful area in which to walk....always love seeing the photographs.
