Ahhhhh, Serenity Sunday!

Sunday, April 25, 2010

It's shaping up to be a beautiful day outside. The rain clouds are disappearing and the sun is making an attempt to shine. BONUS....Garry and I don't have to work today!

We are taking this day and just relaxing in it. Even though there are always things that could be done in the yard etc., today will be a day of just relaxing and recharging.

The girls are coming over later today for a visit...always nice.

My Positives:
Serenity Sunday.
visit with our girls.
Count down is on until we leave on holidays. Thank you to Shirl, John and Nancy for helping out. I know I can depend on you to keep things rolling and help each other out if needed. You are such blessings.
Although my favorite Ceramic cooking pot cracked yesterday and is now unuseable in the oven, I've figured out a way to reuse it. I'm sealing the crack, putting dirt in it and planting some kitty grass for my cat. It's a nice size and heavy enough that she won't be able to tip it over! Kismet is going to love it.
Finding my positives and blessings each day.
Knowing that all that I need is supplied, I just need to remember God's promises.

Have a wonderful day, keep on living your life with joy.

    Sounds like you will have a lovely Sunday and this is the week you'll be heading away, how nice to be able to connect again with family. That's a wonderful way to reuse your cracked pot, I am sure kitty will appreciate the grass. Will miss you while you are gone, but will know you are doing something entirely enjoyable. It's nice to have our Nancy back.

What a difference a bit of rain makes!

Saturday, April 24, 2010

It rained most of Thursday night and off and on Friday. Looking out on the world this morning....how clean it looks and so green! The grass and trees deperately needed that drink of water and are displaying their appreciation by a brighter green this morning. How lovely.

Headed to bed early last night, both Garry and I were so tired. I think partly because of a busy work week, but rain seems to always make the both of us tired. I'm ready to face the day though today and Garry will be out the door to work shortly.

My Positives:
A beautiful greener world this morning.
A good night sleep last night.
A day ahead of me that has no commitments...in otherwords...My day!
It's looking like a day for some walking outside.
My little tiny tomato seeds that I planted in starter trays are all popping through the dirt! WOO HOO! I hope to have lots of tomatoes this year.
I'll have time today to plant some "cat grass" for my kitty. She'll be thrilled as it starts to grow.
Being alive to enjoy life.

Have a wonderful blessing filled day. Thank you for stopping by. Remember to put laughter into your life.

    The rain can be so refreshing for nature, and for us, too. It can be a time to just stop the busyness to reflect and restore ourselves. Have a peaceful evening. emoticon emoticon

    Your kitty might appreciate it if you grew catnip also. A friend gave us a plant so we'd always have it for our "children." Have a wonderful weekend.

    Isn't it nice sometimes to have a Saturday with no certain plans just take it as it comes. We have had a few sprinkles this morning, they say tomorrow is suppose to be rain most of the day, we could use it. Enjoy your weekend.Clenton and I always sleep better when it's rainy, just something about rain that's relaxing.

Yay, we finely got some much needed rain!

Friday, April 23, 2010

The clouds blew in around suppertime last night and kept building. The wind has been blowing all night, but at least is rain with it. It's been raining almost all night.
The land is so incredibly dry around here that the rain is a real blessing. Night before last there was a wild fire that broke out not too far from where we live. It threatened homes before it could be extinguished. Thankfully there was no lose of home to anyone. Apparently it started in a ditch. Hmmm, wonder who threw their cigarette out the window as they drove by???

The trees were just beginning to bud and the grass was attempting to turn green. This rain should have the grass beautifully green in no time and the leaves bursting from the trees. The birds will be happy to have better shelter too.

My positives:
Listening to the rain (and wind).
That the earth is receiving some relief from the dryness.
It's Friday!
One more week until holidays! woo hoo.
Being able to help someone unexpectedly. I love those opportunities. They are such blessings to all concerned.
This awesome team that supports and encourages each other.
God, who in His infinite wisdom leads me.

Have a Fabulously wonderful Friday. Take the time to brighten someone's day today with random acts of kindness.

    Wanda, glad to read that no one lost their home with that wildfire! If it were a cigarette that started it, I have 2 thoughts: one, another reason to quit smoking - you litter; two, a real insult to have done it on EARTH DAY

Wishing you a fab Friday! Hugs!

    I love, love, love rainy days. There is a peacefulness about them. I also love the smell of the dirt/earth just after it starts to get wet. Don't know why...I just do.

    We need some rain too. We've had a very dry spring so far. Maybe it will come in May. Hope you have a Fabulous Friday!

April 22

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Yay, my internet is back up and running this morning. Yesterday I managed to get my blog done and was part way through my post on the team page when I lost my internet connection. What a blessing that I have a computer at work. I gathered up my things and headed out the door earlier than usual to work so that I would have a few minutes at least to log on at work.

Our department went out for lunch together yesterday. What a nice opportunity to sit down with everyone and have a breather. We are so snowed under with work right now and it won't get any better until after we've moved to our new location in October. The bonus...our supervisor picked up the tab! What a lovely treat.

An added lovely surprise was to get home yesterday from work and have an email response from a website that I've belonged to for several years. BigFish.com A lovely website that you can download games and be assured that they are virus free and guaranteed. I joined the site when the kids were still at home and wanting to play games on the computer. There are so many violent and nasty games out there, I wanted some control over what they were playing and downloading. I have always found them to be very quick to respond if I've had a problem with a game or any questions. I had purchased a game, that was giving me some problems and they were very good about helping me with instructions about how to update my video card and drivers so that the game would play properly. On top of that, yesterday, they issued me a coupon for a free game of my choice to show their appreciation of my support to their website.
Now how nice is that!

Well today promises to be another busy day at work, so I'd best get myself ready to head out the door.

My positives:
A lovely lunch out with co-workers yesterday. I really do have the best group of co-workers. So nice to always be able to go to work and know that you'll share laughs and encouragement throughout the day.
A bonus free game from BigFish.
Time to sit in the sunshine yesterday after work. The leaves are just beginning to appear as bits of green on the trees. We really need a good rain to help out now.
Opportunities to appreciate the smaller blessings in my life. Often we only see the big ones, but it's amazing how many little ones we receive each and every day.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit. May your day be filled with many blessings.

Enjoying the day!

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

It's still dark outside this morning, but the birds are waking up and starting to sing. My cat is sitting at the open window listening and I'm enjoying the fact that I can hear.
The weather has been absolutely gorgeous, I'm thrilled that at 4:30 am I am able to open my windows and leave them open for the day. Nothing like a fresh breath of air in your house after a long winter of being closed up.

Our department area at work is becoming so crowded with carts and carts of books either waiting to be received, processed or cataloged before they can go out on the floor for our patrons. We are receiving 20+ boxes everyday now and there seems to be no end to the accumulation. That's a good thing though as it means the items that have been ordered are being supplied and our patrons will be happy with all the new materials. We get to play "human tetris" as we work our way around in our department, but hey, life is meant to have fun right!
We are going out to lunch today as a staff, just to acknowledge each other and all the hard work we have been doing. We have an excellent team in our department and it's wonderful that we support each other the way we do.

My positives:
A job that I enjoy doing and a great team that I work with.
I'm able to wear my sandals again. (I hate socks and shoes, my feet get so hot!)
Lunch out today.
Holidays next week( well starting after work on Thursday of next week!)
Life, it's meant to be lived, enjoyed and embraced.

Have a wonderful day today, count your blessings and remember ....YOU ARE WORTH IT!

    It has been a beautiful day here too, and I like you love it when I can open the windows and let in the fresh air and love it when I can sleep with my bedroom window left open a little. Wow, sounds like you are really busy at work, how nice you can all go out together, no wonder you are looking forward to your holiday. We are so blessed to be alive and enjoying life. Have a lovely evening. Oh, I liked the word on my blog, lol.
