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

Morning Skies

 34 degrees this morning when I walked.
Mostly cloudy and windy too.
My usual walk around town, the cemeteries, ball park,
and to see the bulls.

Saw a few snow plows out there getting ready for the
snow that is expected later today.
(late afternoon it started snowing)

I was the only one out there walking around this morning.
Perhaps others are waiting and going out later in the day.

This morning all the pictures I took walking were of the sky.
It sure was pretty.

Walked 6 miles

🚶‍♀️    🙂    ☁️

Finished the rest of my house cleaning for this week.

I have finished making another row of weave-its for the bedspread
I'm working on and have sewn the strip onto the other 16 strips.There are 408 squares done so far with these 17 strips. Just 7 more strips to go - a total of 168 more. When all done the bedspread will contain 576 weave-it squares.

So many people ask me questions about the weave-it squares that
I'm writing up a PAGE all about them and when done it will be
right under the header picture.
Hopefully that will answer all questions.
It will probably take me a few days to finish.

Got some more reading done with afternoon and
also worked on the puzzle.
Spent some time looking out of the window watching the
snow fall.  One of those pretty snowfalls, that come down heavy
and straight and peaceful looking. So pretty.

Hamburgers and French fries for supper tonight.

A happy Friday to you.
Thanks for stopping by.
👩🏻‍🦳 happyone ❤️

Deb - The games that Ken likes to play on the play station are City Skylines and Snow runner.  He doesn't like the shoot em up kind.

...wow, what a start to your day. We had a dull overcast day today which might look good compared to the rain in store for tomorrow.

Rose said...

Your day was beautiful from beginning to end!

What a beautiful sunrise... thanks for sharing the photos. We are going to get rain and/or freezing rain from this weekend's storm. I would much prefer a snowstorm! Have a great weekend!

Your sky photos are just beautiful. I like the last snow scene too.
Take care, enjoy your weekend!

Hi Karen. I love your bird collection in the window. You have such fun and interesting collections in your home! Beautiful sunrise pictures. Hope you and Ken have a nice weekend. See you tomorrow.

Vee said...

What exquisite skies! And the snow is lovely as well.

I am glad that Ken got his playstation. Life is challenging enough without giving up things we truly enjoy.

It's a rainy day in the 40s here. Crazy weather. I am sure that winter will return someday.

Jeanette said...

That certainly is a beautiful sky! I like your bird figurine collection on the windowsill!

Beautiful skies and winter scenes.

We had some light snow this morning but it didn't last long. Our temps have been similar to yours. I'm ready for sunshine but it's only January! Have a blessed weekend.

Nellie said...

Beautiful sunrise! We’ve had a bit of snow here today; no accumulation. You are always busy with something. I’m sure that bedspread will be lovely!

Granny Marigold said...
