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

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

This is the day which the Lord hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Another too cold to walk outside morning so walked in the basement.
No outside pictures from today but here is one from the past 
when we lived in town and had a decent amount of snow.
I'm standing in the front yard.
Think it was 2014.
Left mid morning and we drove down to LaVale.
Did a little shopping at the Walmart.
Bought these storage containers for getting my pantry
organized.  They make a good start and I'll be buying more of them
in the future.  Makes the pantry look neat and tidy.

Went to  Ollie's and walked around there to see if we could find any bargains.
I found this yarn on sale for just $1.99 a skein.
Bought three, will make pretty squares for a baby blanket.

Puttered around the house when we got home.
Did a little of the puzzle and read.

Had supper and now we are off to church.
 Probably won't have time to blog tomorrow.
It's a Fingerprint work day at church from 9 till 9
but I'll be back on Friday.

A happy day to you.
Thanks for stopping by.

Great pop of color for the next baby blanket. I’m glad that pic is not from today. Have a great day tomorrow!

Been bitterly cold here all week. I wish some snow would come with it, but I doubt that will happen. I always love a visit to Ollie's. They have some great, random stuff.

...we haven't had snow like that in years!

That was a lot of snow.

That is a lot of snow...I don't know if I have ever been in but maybe one snow that deep.

I was looking at those containers just the other day!

That is beautiful yarn for a baby blanket

I love those yarn colors. Once you have the pantry all organized, I hope you will show us a picture. It might just encourage me to start that project.

Deb said...

That is a lot of snow. The yarn is pretty. I think you can always use more containers for food, they are nice looking. Happy Thursday, enjoy your weekend ahead.

You know I would pop on over to your blog with a title like Yarn! Great price! I never thought to check at Ollies for yarn. The colors are great.
