Fantastic evening

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

What an excellent night - my husband surprised me with a glass of wine at dinner and an evening together. We even booked a holiday weekend getaway! Then I did my workout and joined him to watch Nova. I feel quiet and calm today, with very minimal pain.

Joyful day

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Didn't sleep well last night but what a great day:

- wore my new shirt that I got a great price on
- my pants felt loose
- I said no to a committee invitation
- I had great meals all day and everything was planned
- I had two of my friends write me with recipe successes
- I made a new friend on SP who sent me a goodie (first time for me and ever so glad!)
- I organized all my summer scarves and winter paraphernalia by colour and bought coordinating bins for the front hall closet
- I felt joyful today emoticon

chocolate race

Monday, January 23, 2012

Today was a day where nothing went terribly wrong, but I was slow moving. Lots of talking with people that I don't normally see and that was nice.

Tonight we practiced on the reformer in Pilate's and again it reinforced my decision that this was a good choice for me. Then! when I got home I had an adorable package of sticky notes arrive in the mail for the chocolate race: a larger ginger woman in a green dress and high heels chasing a chocolate bunny yelling "bite me!" Made me smile. Race day is April 28 and I have a goal to beat my best time emoticon

To quote "because life is short, running is hard and chocolate tastes good."

#4 chickens were on sale for $1.99/lb (woo hoo, beer can chickens)
#5 my celebration flowers are home now and doing exceptionally well! I plucked off the outer layers of the rose petals and now they are good as new. Only the orange daisy didn't survive
#5 our kitchen and hall are kitchen & canning free :)
#6 I'm going to spend time with my sister today and coach her on recipe planning, grocery shopping & cooking meals for her family

My marriage is blessed - the man I love is the one who loves me, we laugh and are comfortable to talk. We have fun and our life has joy.
