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

Some snow

We got about 6 inches or so of snow and this morning it was
still snowing though we didn't get any more accumulation.
The temperature was 11 degrees and windy.
Walked my first 2 miles down in the basement.

Made us pancakes for breakfast.
After breakfast we bundled up and went outside to clear the driveway.  
Me shoveling and Ken on the tractor.
He put chains on the tractor tires the other day.


 When the driveway was done I took off walking.
Turned right here and went up the lane.



Here's Ken on the tractor clearing David and Liz's driveway.
Ken does the bottom of it an David takes care of the top part
closer to the cabin.


We stayed outside most of the morning and was back inside
by lunchtime.  My toes were just started to get cold.
Had enough steps by the time I got in the house to make my 6 miles for the day.

So nice to get in the nice warm house.
 I'm happy that we finally got some snow.😊 🌨

After lunch I worked on the puzzle for a while and then read
more of my book. 
 Also made a some weave-it squares.
I'm ahead with squares and already working on Februarys blanket.
Once I finish that I'm going to work on my own blanket a bit.

The sun made a short appearance this afternoon but it stayed windy
and never did get warmer than 11 degrees.

We had homemade pizza again this Friday.
That has turned into a weekly thing now.

Thanks for stopping by.
A happy day to you. 😊

Good thing Ken has the tractor. It saves a lot of shoveling.

Snow is so pretty.

Homemade pizza sounds good about now. Glad you finally got some good snow. That's a good snow plowing trade off. Our son put the chains on his tractor, too.

Glad you finally got some snow. Homemade pizza sounds great! Have you shared your recipe over on your recipe blog?
Hope you all have a good weekend. :-)

That tractor is a good thing in the snow! Bob has been busy with our snow blower!

11 degrees is a bit too cold for me, but you probably got warmed up shoveling snow. It is a pretty snow.

Thank goodness we only shovel sunshine here. I like the idea of Friday pizza night!!

Hello,

The snow looks pretty in pictures, it is so cold out there. It is only in the teens this morning. Pizza night would be my favorite. I am thankful for our neighbor and his plow, he is so kind to plow our driveway. Happy weekend!

I did a fun thing today. I went back to your first month of blogging on this blog - September 2008. You were still living in Savage, MD and waiting on your townhouse to be started. I had to laugh. You said in now post that you weren’t going to write every single day in this blog. Good intentions I am sure - but you are hooked!! And it looked like you have some readers who followed you to this blog from your previous blog. I do that with my own blog sometimes - look back at previous years.

Boy, your walk this morning sure was different from yesterday's walk. Such a beautiful snow. We got a little snow but nothing like what you have. Don't know how I miss so many of your posts. Need to check in more. Happy New Year!

I love the snow, but recently we have had bone chilling temperatures and I don't care much for those.
