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 day of reading

It started snowing late yesterday afternoon but by
morning the temperature had risen to 33 and the snow turned to rain.
It was a slushy mess out there and figured I get soaked
so though I thought about walking outside I wimped
out and did loops in the basement.

Sunset is from Friday evening.

Baked the first of three batches of cookies for the kids at Sunday
school.  Don't have to bring them in till March 3 but I 
bake them ahead and then freeze them.
This time they are getting 

Didn't much of anything today except read.
Finished How the Light Gets in by Louise Penny.
It was a page turner for me and very hard to put down.
It is the 9th book in the Gamache series and I think the best one so far.
I thought it was excellent.

We drove down the post office and mailed off a couple
of Netflix and then stopped in the library before coming home.
I picked up a book that was on hold for me and checked
out the next Louise Penny book.
Want to finish another book I'm reading first before
starting on these next two.

Decided not to go to Brenda's for pizza for supper tonight
and stay home and make home made pizza.

Temperature supposed to get below freezing again so
it may be icy in the morning.
I'm hoping that won't happen!!

Hope your day was a happy one.
happyone ❤️

Love that sunset photo...I used to chase sunset photos, but not so much now. I looked up that book...the title just sounds so familiar but I don't know what from. we had a mess yesterday with snow, but then it is almost gone now.

Beautiful sunset, my favorite time of day! Hope the weather is fit for you to walk. I am planning to bake cookies this week, and will check out the german chocolate cookies. Thanks for sharing.

I love the L. Penny series too! I'm tempted to go back and read them again. But I have a lot of books checked out from the library now so I better read faster! lol Hope the weather improves so that you can get outside and walk. I hope to go tomorrow morning...a change from my usual time. Hugs!

Hello, beautiful sunset. I have enjoyed all of the Gamache series, Louise Penny is a great story teller and writer. Enjoy your day!

It won't get warm here again for awhile as well.

Beautiful picture.
Staying in and staying safe and warm sounds like a good idea :)

Warm wishes.

I recommend Louise Penny's books to everyone I talk to (to be read in order). Good to hear you like them too,

I don't think I've ever read anything by Louise Penny, thanks for the tip!!

I wish that I was a reader like you. I've been trying to get through a book for over a year now, I'm ashamed to say. :) Homemade pizza sure sounds good.

I’m going to have one of these kinds of days tomorrow. Glad that you didn’t go out in the slushy mess. Those Sunday School children are surely blessed with the delicious homemade cookies you make for them. I inow that it blesses you to be able to domit for them as well.

That Gamache book was a page turner for sure. I'm glad your library has them available for you. It's been snowing here all day and has finally stopped. We stayed in and listened to a couple of sermons.
Hope you have a great evening and Wednesday.
