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

Warmer but more snow

⛄     ⛄
Well it did get warmer and I did get to go on my normal morning walk,
but it was snowing again.
The temperature was up to 33 degrees and there was a bit of a wind.
I left at 6:45 and wore my snow sneakers with the ice grippers on them.
Was a bit limited where I could walk because of the snow piled up
on the sidewalks.  Not having on my snow boots I couldn't walk around
the cemeteries either so I just walked around on the side streets.
It sure was nice taking a morning walk again.

Didn't see anyone else out walking,
but I did see lots of animals tracks of deer, rabbits, and some
small animal which I think were squirrels.
Walked 5.8 miles
⛄     ⛄
First thing after breakfast I got some chili started in the slow cooker
for supper tonight.  

I had some apples sitting around that we didn't seem to be eating,
so I thought I use them up and make some Apple Crumble.
I'll have that tonight for my snack instead of ice cream.
Or maybe I'll put a bit of ice cream on top of it.  That sounds even better.

Finished the latest puzzle of the wolves howling at the moon.
I'm sure I'll have the next one started before long. 😊

Count your blessing and have a happy day.
happyone 💕

You did well to walk so far in the snow!
Apple crumble tastes so much sweeter with a scoop of ice cream!

Rose said...

I would definitely have ice cream on top! Going to have to look and see what you call apple crumble...

It sure looks like you had a beautiful walk!

Rose said...

I thought maybe you were talking about apple crisp, but not so! Apple Crumble sounds good!

Tom said...

...we have beautiful slush now!

Michelle said...

It sounds like a great day!

Sandi said...

That's alot of snow! I'm not used to winter being so wintery.

ellen b said...

Glad you could get out and have a walk. A crumble sounds real good!

I'm so glad you were able to get out but it looks frigid. Love the wolves. I work a puzzle on my Ipad every night and play one game of Solitaire. It's fun and keeps you sharp. We hiked today but it was 74 here. Felt good to get out on the trails. Wish we could walk together. Enjoy your evening!

You are getting those puzzles done so fast. I'm still working on the first one.

Mrs. f.G. Got me a puzzle, but it's huge, difficult, and with very subtle shades of colour. I fear it's going to take me months!

Adam said...

cool wolves puzzle

Love your snow pictures. I'm really hoping for some more snow this year.

o2bhiking said...

I'd still be working on that 300 years from now.

The snow is really pretty but even the few inches we had here combined with ice makes it difficult to walk. So I applaud your effort to get out there and do that many miles. Wow!

bettyC said...

It seems like the biggest snow season you’ve had since moving there

eileeninmd said...

Hello, it does feel good to get out for some fresh air. I like your puzzle, very pretty. The chili sounds delicious. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day.

I think the first year we were here we had more snow, it would snow a foot at a time. I remember walking in the snow in the back yard and it was thigh high.
But the winter has just begun.....

Debby Ray said...

Oh yes...you must have ice cream on top of that apple crumble!

Joyce F said...

Yummy, maybe I'll make apple crisp today! That's a neat puzzle. I'm working on one titled Christmas in the City. Really more a winter scene. I'm at a point where it's a little more difficult but I might finish today. Too bad we don't live near each other so we could trade.

Inger said...

While I love to see the snow, I know you guys have had quite a lot of it. Apple crumble sounds delicious!

Henny Penny said...

It is beautiful there but does look really cold! Yes, add the dip of ice cream. That sounds delicious!

It's always good to be able to get outside for some fresh air.
That looks another good puzzle.

All the best Jan
