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

Wednesday

 Walked inside in the morning and was outside walking around
in the afternoon so got all my miles walked.

Didn't have my phone when I was outside so sorry no pictures today.

It warmed up to the upper 30's, was windy, and the sun came out
so quite a lot of the snow melted.
Supposed to get cold over night with more snow so who knows
what tomorrow will bring.

David and Liz stopped by just as we were about to go out
so we put off going out till after lunch.
Didn't matter what time we left and it's always nice
to have them stop by just to see how we are.

After lunch we went for a drive to see how the roads were.
All clear and most of them even dry!
Stopped at the Shop and Save - we needed milk and bread!! πŸ™‚
Ken had a book to pick up at the library so we stopped there too.

I finished reading Brave New World and didn't much care for that
one either - slightly better than 1984.
Ken is now reading Brave New World.

I'm now going back to finish reading The Pickwick Papers. 
I know I like that book!!  πŸ™‚

That's all I have for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
A happy day to you. 😊

Hi Karen. I don't like dystopian novels either. Real life brings us plenty to be depressed about sometimes, so I figure I don't need to read about more depressing things. So glad you got to have a nice visit with David and Liz. What a blessing having them close by is!

I hope you don't get too much snow overnight. Sounds like today was fairly nice at least by afternoon.

My preferred reading choices tend to lean towards spy thrillers and history.

We are definitely in deep winter now. I like thinking about that minute or two of daylight that we are gaining each day. A very cold arctic blast is moving in here tonight.

It was really chilly here today...the wind just chilled me to the bone.

I'm glad to hear your roads have cleared up! Hope they stay that way for a bit.

Cold cold cold here today. I was outside for a short walk with Scruffy but 8˚F (not counting windchill) was just too cold for me. Scruffy didn't seem to mind with his little sweater on.
I hope you have a great night! xo Diana

Don't waste time, on books I don't really like.

So it's nice to have more then one, to choose from, at a time. Which I have on my Kindle.

It is so nice when our adult children take the time to check up on us. Fun that they can do that in person!
