Baby...it's cold outside!!!

It's sooooooo cold out there and looks like it's going to stay this way for a few days. I'm ready for our January "thaw".

Take a look at this cartoon! My "dark humor" is showing...good to put a smile on your face!!!

What an awesome day!!! Karen and I went shopping...for almost 7 hours here in Elliot Lake!!! Now...if you've EVER been to EL --- you'll understand completely. For those of you who haven't been blessed with a visit here...Elliot Lake is a small town and doesn't offer much in the line of shopping. But...we managed to find some real deals here and there....and I even found a few Christmas gifts. Nothing like planning ahead, right??

Found an interesting bit of reading earlier this evening...makes sense. Take a look...worth the time!! I believe they were written by Robert Louis Stevenson.....

Make up your mind to be happy.
Learn to find pleasure in simple things.
Make the best of circumstances.
No one has everything and everyone has something of sorrow.
Don't take yourself too seriously.
Don't let criticism worry you.
You can't please everybody.
Don't let your neighbors set your standards; be yourself.
Do things you enjoy doing but stay out of debt.
Don't borrow trouble. Imaginary things are harder to bear than actual ones.
Since hate poisons the soul, do not cherish enmities and grudges.
Avoid people who make you unhappy.
Have many interests.
If you can't travel, read about places.
Don't hold post-mortems or spend time brooding over sorrows and mistakes.
Do what you can for those less fortunate than yourself.
Keep busy at something. A very busy person never has time to be unhappy.
With that...I bid you a "good evening"! I'm going to go sit and crochet for awhile.

I do hope your day was as much fun as mine!!! KEEP WARM!
