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

Looking in

This morning at 7:15 I headed outside all bundled up to take a walk.
By the time I walked down the driveway and a block or so from the house
I realized I should not be out here and went back home.
It wasn't that I was cold but the snow was too deep for my snow 
sneakers and there were snow plows around and I would have been in the way.

Ken went out later in the morning to use the snow blower to clear the
driveway and I shoveled the places where he couldn't use the blower.
I actually enjoy shoveling snow as long as I don't have to do it all day.
No walk but did get some exercise in with the shoveling.

Took a picture of my house from outside with the Christmas tree in the window.
After lunch we went up to the house site and marked off where we would
like some of the lights to go and outlets.
The heating people where there putting in the furnace and
the rest of the duct work.
There were a couple of heaters blowing hot air around but it was still
pretty cold in the house.  I had planned on walking around HT a bit
in the snow but by the time we finished in the house my toes were cold
and I just wanted to go home to a nice warm house.
Which is what we did and I started reading another book.

Had grilled cheese and tomato soup for supper.
mmmm good

A happy day to you.

  1. Well it looks like a white Christmas for you!

  2. Great idea to take a photo of your tree all lit up in the window! It looks so pretty!

  3. It’s beautiful, but that grilled cheese, tomato soup, and a good book sound good!

  4. Your home looks so warm and cozy from the outside, I can only imagine how cozy the inside is. Seems like the new house is getting done on schedule.
    I love grilled cheese and soup for supper.
    I think after shoveling snow that you got plenty of exercise.~smile~
    Thanks for visiting have a blessed evening.

  5. ...it's always good to be 'smart.'

  6. Your home looks like it's nestled in a Winter Wonderland! We have snow here and the inversion is terrible. Makes you want to stay inside.

  7. Doesn't it feel so good to come home to a warm house after being cold and/or wet! And all you have to do is flip a switch for light, or turn a handle for water or hot water!

  8. All that snow is so beautiful. I am anxiously waiting for a good layer of snow to fall here.

  9. That photo would make a lovely Christmas card. It sounds like you made the right decision to stay in. Can't beat a good book and grilled cheese with tomato soup.

  10. Hello,
    Pretty photo of your house, with the tree lit in the window. we may have a little more snow today? I like the grilled cheese with tomato soup, yum! Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  11. Lovely photo of your house.
    Grilled cheese and tomato soup for supper sounds good!

    All the best Jan

  12. Your house looks so pretty there with the tree lit up and the snow. I also love that row of perfect trees behind your house. A row of natural Christmas trees. Oh, from your earlier post, we like tinsel on the tree (is that the same as icicles?) it's old fashioned, but we always add that too.

  13. Safety first, Happy K! I like the view of your house in the snow with the tree lit up.

  14. Your tree lit up in the front window is just beautiful. Very colourful.

  15. Your home sitting in the snow with the lit tree in the window looks so beautiful. (Glad that you were discerning and realized that walking was not a good idea for that day.)
