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 my yard


 ⛄     ⛄
Another cold snowy morning so I didn't go for a morning walk.
This morning I spent cleaning the house and got the whole house done.
Went through it all like a whirlwind but felt so good when everything was
clean and sparkly.  

Later in the day it warmed up to 16 and I bundled up and went for a walk.
The roads were icy, snow plows were out and no shoveled sidewalks
so I decided to go for a walk in my yard!!  ๐Ÿ˜Š
I walked up and down in rows in the yard, kind of like mowing the lawn.
I ended up walking 4 miles.
Here's what our yard looks like!


I was unaware of Ken taking pictures of me walking the back yard.
A little bit later I stopped to take a picture.
 This was the picture I took.
I wonder what people think as they pass our yard and see all those tracks!

This morning with all the snow coming down I never would have guessed
that by the afternoon the sun would be shining.
I don't mind the cold as long it is sunny.

A happy day to you.

"If you search the world for happiness, 
you may find it in the end,
for the world is round and will lead you back to your own door."

  1. Love that quote at the end!

    Beautiful snow. If I saw your tracks I would probably think it was some kind of yard treatment to melt ice.

  9. Hello, It is too cold for me to walk outside. You are brave to stand these cold temperatures. I love the sky shots and the pattern you made walking in the snow.
    Enjoy your day!
