Thanksgiving Thankful!

Thursday, November 22, 2012

I awoke this morning with so much thanks flooding out of me. Been trying to list 5 things I'm thankful for each day. Needless to say I have more than 5 things daily to be thankful for. Feeling so blessed and thankful today. I have so much and am so thankful for God's blessings in my life. I am so overwhelmed by His generosity. I so treasure my children, my mother in law, my husband, my friends....my upbringing...so thankful

I am also so thankful I have a quiet morning to wake up and get dressed and travel to daughter in law's family dinner. I don't have to hussle I can take my time and enjoy these quiet moments.

So Thankful today! emoticon

Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Beginning each day with a list of 5 things I'm thankful for..and each day it has to be different things. Easy to do as I have so much to be thankful for in my life.

At work by myself today. I'm guessing it will be a slow day! May get some payments....
Off Thursday/Friday. Looking forward to a 4 day weekend. Staying home and hopefully getting some decorating started and work on the bow case.

Taught Bible Study last evening while co-worker had Praise Team Practise. I know she's nervous about it as this is her first time to sing...another singer didn't show...it was a crazy evening. I know worship Minister was a little stressed out as things weren't coming together with the whole set. Co-worker feeling the stress of it all too! It will work out. Some practises don't seem to come together and then Sunday morning it all comes together.

Traveling to Cincinnati for Thanksgiving with daughter in law's family. Don't have to cook!

Off to make it a great Thankful Day!

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Meeting with BNI member today...she has a marketing business. Hoping to purchase some Christmas presents. She seems like such a joyful, beautiful lady. Looking forward to getting to know her better.

Was able to get in a lunchtime walk. It was a nice day to walk. The sun was out and it was nice.

Today and Wednesday and then a 4 day weekend. Looking forward to the break. Planning to start decorating some, work on bow case for co-worker.

Daughter is planning to invite a bunch of friends over for New Years Eve kinda like an open house as they fly out early the next morning! So gotta start getting the house into shape. Looking forward to spending time with family and friends this holiday season. NOt gonna lie the best part will be spending time with daughter. She is becoming such a joy to be around.

Mom is in a funk again. Then we find out she's been talking to relatives. Seems like every time she talks to people from her past she goes into a downer. Not sure why...they all want her to hop a train or come visit them and she won't and then she gets so down. Never asks us to take her...then we have to pull her up and get her going again. I know the season we're heading into is a tough one too. We try to keep her busy to get through the holidays...

Off to be thankful and see what adventures today holds for me!

    Good morning Kathleen. Sounds like you will be one busy lady in the next month or so. Look at all that extra heavy cleaning calorie burning you will be doing.

Sounds like you need to speak to the relatives about mom. Are they aware of her situation to the extent it is now?

Have a great day and get shopping. emoticon Donna

    Have a great day
I am also my mother's mother. It is a gift of love that we give. We care for both a younger and an older generation at the same time.

Magnificient Monday!

Monday, November 19, 2012

Had a nice weekend! Got a lot of yard work done...was in a car poker run ralley yesterday afternoon. A beautiful day...enjoyed the countryside. We missed a turn but was able to find our way back on course. You are given directions with odometer mileage and you have to find your way around the countryside. At 4 stations you picked a card from a person and reset your odometer readings for the next set of directions. You have a 2 hour time limit to complete the ralley. In the end the one who had the best poker hand from the cards you drew won...if you were within the time limit and everyone was. We were the 10th car out and came in 10th...I don't play cards and had no clue in that area. The countryside was so pretty. You also had 10 questions to answer from along the trip...signs and things to fill in the blank or answer. It was fun. Getting easier for me/us.

Ready for a short week. Co-worker taking off Wednesday. Then she'll work a few days after Thanksgiving and will be off from Dec 21 - Jan 7. It should be slow and I was off last year to visit daughter.

So much in my life to be thankful for...health, family, friends, job, warm home, a vehicle to get to work, safety, love...my cup overfloweth. Learning to be content where I am and enjoy the journey where I'm at.

So Thankful!

    I work Monday - Wednesday have Thanksgiving off then work Friday and then a 3 day weekend. Co-worker wanted Black Friday off so that's why I get to work but I don't mind. work is work and I'm thankful for my job.

If we but only sit and count our blessings they are bound to be more of those then what is actually ailing us.. lol.

Have a Magnificent Monday. Donna

Joyful Sunday

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Got the yard trimmed up and cleaned up for winter. Not feeling too bad today a little stiff and sore...but not like a few weeks ago.

Going on a car rally this afternoon with hubby.

Have had a good weekend. Looking forward to the holiday. Going to daughter in law's family for dinner...so I don't have to cook or clean.

Off to praise the Lord!
