Serenity Sunday

Sunday, January 17, 2010

I'm having a lazy day today...it's back to work again tomorrow at 5:30 am so today is just for family and relaxing.

Nothing major has been planned other than taking the flooring samples back to the store in the city, then Garry is thinking as the weather is still fairly nice that he'll BBQ for supper. That means a stop at the store, but that is an easy do.

Hoping everyone else is having a lovely serenity Sunday. This is your day to for your spirit to renew itself in what ever manner works for you, whether it's attending Church, meditating of just having some quiet time.

My Positives:

I woke up this morning...always a positive.
Garry is home from work today, so a day to spend together.
My SP computer time is all taken care of.
My exercises will done as soon as the computer things are done.
Being blessed with another day of life.

Have a great one, thanks for stopping by,

    Pausing to refresh. A nice healthy choice! Enjoy your day off. I am truly enjoying today because we have an extra day off this week. We have tomorrow off to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I am most grateful for the extra "free" time. Thanks for all that you do to keep things running at the Positive Bloggers. It really is an important part of my healthy lifestyle and I am very grateful! Hope you and Garry have a scrumptious day!
emoticon I just typed in an emoticon number for you. Hope it's a good one.
Ah, a reminder to do your strength training.

I love my Wii Fit Plus!

Saturday, January 16, 2010

I really am enjoying my Wii Fit Plus....just completed 40 minutes on it and now I'm ready to go for the day! I start off with some Yoga and then work my way up from there. I'm gradually getting a regular routine set up on it, but I enjoy the tossed in bicylce race and free step.

The snowplows have finally come back and at least cleared our streets all into the middle of the street. Now we have this love pile of snow running right down the center of the street. Anyone living of our side of the street needs to drive on the wrong side to get to the end of the street and pull off into someones driveway when there is on coming traffic. Sure hope they remove the snow pile soon...it's rather dangerous. When you back out of your driveway, you have to back out at a sharp angle so as to not back into the snow pile. Oh well, the blessing....we can now drive on the street with out fear of getting stuck!

My positives:

Laundry is almost done
Morning exercise routine is done.
I had a chance to sleep in a bit this morning.
The day is mine to do with as I may!
I'm excited about the day...(hmmmm, maybe I won the lotto last night????, lol, I must go and check my ticket!)
Life, it's just plain wonderful.

Have a great Silly Saturday.

    I love my Wii Fit Plus, too. I just figured out last night that you can create your own routine so that complaint I've heard about having to go back to the menu during yoga is not valid anymore! It's great! I love the yoga and I love the free step and free run where you can watch tv while exercising and I love, love, love the games. It's fun to play with the kids. Have you tried the obstacle course? It's the bomb! DID YOU KNOW THERE's A GROUP FOR WII FIT???? ISn't that cool!
Have a super day!!! :)

    I really like my Wii and Wii Fitness Plus too. It is great to get us moving each day. It seems to get me stretching a little more each day!!!
Very glad that you are getting your snow removed also. The sun came out bright and warm today and melted most of ours...at least I can see green in spots. WOOHOO!!!
Blessings and hugs,

    Wiis are so much fun. My In-Laws have one and Dom and I enjoyed it so much we agreed I'm getting one for my birthday! (in 1.5 months, so we'll call this a long-term kind of excitement.)

Sorry you have so much snow... it's almost t-shirt weather in South Jersey. I couldn't believe it myself.

Have a great weekend!

Yay! It's Fabulous Friday!

Friday, January 15, 2010

Today just couldn't come fast enough in this work week. It's been lots of overtime and yesterday's 8 hour meeting was exhausting. I need to go in earlier than usual today, just so I can get away on time after work.

Great news! Thank you all who were holding Kaeli up in prayer re a job situation. Kaeli interviewed for two jobs this week and got both of them. One is full-time Monday to Friday working 8 - 4:30 and the other is part-time working Wed evenings 5-10 and Friday evenings 5-8. She is thrilled to be offered both positions as they are both jobs she was excited about doing. She starts on Monday.

My Positives:

Kaeli has work once again.
Temperatures are remaining lovely according to the forecast for another week at least.
Although it's been lots of overtime at work this week, it has been a good week.
Going in early this morning will give me almost 4 uninterrupted work hours before other staff begins to arrive for work! YAY.
Garry has been very busy at his work also, a great indicator that the economy appears to be turning around.
How blessed this family is.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.

Have a Fabulous Friday!

    Wooot! Kaeli!!!

I love the idea of listing your positive's for the day. I think that's a good practice. Might have to start doing that myself. Good way to FOCUS on the positive. (I'm all about FOCUS this year.)

Have a great Friday! REJOICE!

Last evening Garry and I were invited to our daughters place to view and see and have supper with them. What a nice ending to a very busy day. Kaeli had made lasagna and garlic bread and I was mindful of my portions.

Nevi and CJ are getting along great...CJ (the cat) is still rather unsure of what Nevi actually is, but he is being a very good boy and allowing his "little sister" (the rabbit) to follow him around and even curl up next to him. Although the curling up next to him is done with great "Oh, my God, she is touching me!" He seems much calmer now that he isn't competing for territory with another cat. Kismet (who got left with us) is less cranky too!

I have a busy, busy day at work today. We have meetings for most of the day as well as trying to get some work done. Oh well, I can only do what I can do...right?

My Positives:
Supper out at the girls last evening. An enjoyable evening.
Hopefully Kaeli will know the results of her jobs interviews today.
A wonderful phone call from Nancy Jane after work yesterday. Thank you Nancy...it was great to touch base with you.
The county is supposed to be clearing our streets this week of all the snow build up. YAY...there will be no more danger of getting stuck!
Life...I woke up this morning and that is a wonderful start to my day.

Have a wonderful Thursday...focus on your positives through out the day.

    Wanda, now see there's an advantage to your girls being out on their own, but not being to far from mom, how nice to have your daughter's have mom & dad over for dinner. Pet's usually do adjust, eventually. Good luck to Kaeli, hope the outcome is what she wants in the job area.

    All will be well with the household when one cat is in charge... and everyone else knows it! I speak from experience! lol.

    Glad to hear Nevi & CJ are becoming friends...sort of! My guess is the kitty is just making sure the bunny knows who is REALLY in charge! Hehehehe...

Ooooo, lasagna...I'm still bemoaning the piece that slid to the floor on Sunday. Made this delish veggie lasagna for John and me...kept only one piece & gave the rest to John to take home...When I heated it on Sunday, my carpal tunnel kicked in and I lost the dish & lasagna...Boohoo!

Meetings! I have them today too...problem with mine are that I always come out with a lot more work...but no one else does...hmmmmm....

thing again today! HOORAY!

Half way through the work week already! Time sure flies when one is having fun! lol

Great day yesterday. I was blessed to be able to help out Geff with delivering a "huge" bouquet of helim balloons to his place for him to present to his wife on her birthday. Lots of giggles and laughs and blessings going on with that opportunity. Geff was busy clicking pictures of Sandy's expressions. So much fun. I was so happy to be a part of her special day.

Kaeli has two job interviews today, both jobs that she is interested in, one full-time and one part-time. Although, like she says, she just might be able to work them both in together as one is evenings and weekends and the other is during the day. She will hopefully know today if one of them at least is the right fit for her.

It still feels strange not to have both girls home at meal times or in the evenings. But the bonus side...I only have Garry and I to cook for and I don't have to wait until everyone's TV shows are done in order to do my Wii Fit!

My positives:
We are still having unusually warm weather for this time of year. The temps are supposed to be on the plus side all week. Perhaps our streets will clear off some!
On track.
I'm beginning to see my desk top at work!
Opportunities to help out others and in return be so incredibly blessed.
God who directs my life.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Have an awesome day. Keep on moving forward.

    Wow - two jobs what a windfall! Oh to be that young again! I'm sure you'll get used to having your home to yourself and nice dinner visits on occasion which will make them all that more special!

    Wanda, sounds like a great day! What a blessing to help Geff out and be a part of his wife's day! FUN!! That's what I'm talking about for today!!!

Glad it's warming up a bit...sounds like you're sending it down to me by week's end! Thank you for your generosity! :)


had my fun renewing my license...young girl at AAA was delightful! AND what a surprise to find out I could renew it there...instead of long lines at the DMV!!!

    Your blog answered a question I had, do you guys get a January thaw like us Michiganders, last January we did not have a thaw in January, but it looks like the last part of this week into next week we are, they are talking 40, woo hoo! At least your girls are not very far away and you'll still get to spend time with them. What a lovely surprise Geff planned for his sweetie and you got to be part of it. Blessings abound all around us. Hope your day at work is a good one.

    Sounds nice and Healthy over here. I enjoy hearing that you are having a bit of a heatwave. I always imagine you in about 7 layers of clothing year round. (I hope I get to see Alberta for myself one day) Have a great day. I'm going to try and cash in some of my international minutes this evening. Hope I don't hit Wii fitness time! We'll see.
