It's another typical May long weekend...cold and miserable! Rained all day yesterday as well as still through the night. But hey....at least it wasn't snowing like it has been all around us!!! The temperature is on the cold side, I even had to turn the furnace back on last night and put an extra cover on the bed. Still overcast this morning, but weather person says, temperatures are supposed to warm up some and we are supposed to get sunshine by Monday. All I care about is being able to get my garden finished and planted if possible! I just shake my head at the crazy people that are going camping this weekend...brrrrrr! It is the first long weekend that technically heralds in summer, so I do understand people wanting to get summer activities under way...heck, I'm doing it too, but mine is gardening! lol
Thank you to all that have kept Geff and his wife Sandy in your prayers. Sandy is doing better and is now under the care of a great neurologist, who wants to get to the bottom of all her symptoms.
Possible shopping trip with Shyra either today or tomorrow...she issued the invite yesterday. YAY!
Sandy is doing better.
Although the wind broke one of my Dahila's, at least I was able to get the rest of my plants into protection from the wind and cold before they got damaged.
A long weekend...YAY, Monday is a holiday.
Kaeli is flying to Vancouver, BC this morning and getting an opportunity to help her best friend pack up for her move. Julie is like another daughter to us. She and Kaeli have been best friends since they were 8 years old. Julie and Mike are expecting their first child next month. They have been transferred to Kamloops BC, hence Kaeli going to help out. We are excited about them moving to Kamloops, as it's only a day's drive away now.
Time to spend catching up with everyone today.
God and all the blessings that He bestows on this family.
Have a wonderful Silly Saturday, don't forget to make laughter part of your day.

Wow, have the temperatures ever dropped. It's been raining almost the entire day yesterday and all night. Still raining this morning and the temperature has dropped from a high of 31 two days ago, to only 8 today. Brrrrrr. Kathy, send me some of that nice warm Florida weather! lol
We are supposed to get sunshine tomorrow...I hope so, I want to get my garden in. Oh well, it's a general thought around here that we usually get snow the May long weekend, so I'll settle for just rain and cool temperatures! lol
Please keep my co-worker Geff and his wife Sandy in your prayers. Sandy had a "very" minor stroke on Wednesday and then yesterday it appears she may have had a more serious one. They have two young daughters at home who have already been through their Dad have serious heart issues already this year.
It's FRIDAY! YAYAYAYAYAYAY.
The rain, the ground is so in need of the moisture. It's helping out the fire situations around here greatly.
Spending time with my girls and son.
Although very busy at work, I'm blessed to have a job.
A much better sleep last night, no being woken up at 2:45am by a bunch of kids shouting and laughing outside. (Makes one wonder how come the parents of those young people have no clue where their child is)
Food, warmth, a soft bed, shelter...all blessings that we often take for granted.
Having God in my life, knowing that I am being guided.
Have a wonderful day, keep on moving forward. Life is wonderful when you look at the blessings that you do have and stop worrying about what you don't have.

I'm thinking that I'm going to be very happy as the end of this work week arrives. We are so incredibly busy at work, then throw in the fact that we are busy at home too...the weekend can't come soon enough! lol
It's a good thing that I do my blogging first thing in the morning, by the time I get home from work...it's just not happening. My apologies to the team for my lack of being around these past few days. It will get better as things slow down a bit.
I've finally found a dentist that actually has left me looking forward to my next visit! I didn't think that was possible. I have such a fear of dental offices. My experiences have not been good ones. But the positive of that, is that my fear has keep me flossing and taking care of my teeth myself diligently so that I don't have to have anything done at the dentists. Yesterday it was time to get a cleaning done. For the first time ever, I had someone who explained things, who used a gentle hand and who also used some automated equipment to help her do her job. As a result the amount of time that I had to keep my mouth open was lessened considerably. This is the first time that I have been able to walk out of the dental clinic without severe pain in my jaw joints!! I'm actually looking forward to going back for my next checkup!! I do have to go back next month to have a molding done of my teeth so that a night guard can be made for me. I have been clenching my jaw at night and hopefully this will help to keep my teeth from being damaged any further. A couple of my teeth are showing signs of cracking from the pressure. I didn't realize how bad the clenching was until lately. I've been waking up with tensed facial muscles and sore jaw joints. Got to practice letting go and relaxing before going to sleep.
We had cloudy skies most of yesterday and by the time I was done at the dentists, we were getting more rain. It's a nice gentle rain though, so it is soaking into the ground. Yay!...this will make doing the digging we need to do in the back yard much easier.
Finally found a dental clinic that is very good.
A great check-up...no majors problems that a night guard won't fix.
Lots of laughs at work yesterday. Thank you Lord for laughter. It sure relieves stress!
Life...what a blessing!
Hope you are finding your blessings in the day. Be open to receiving and you will receive.

Nothing quite like falling asleep to the sounds of gentle rain...or in our case last evening...some thunder thrown in for good measure. It started raining around 7pm and was a lovely rain by the time I went to bed. Not sure how long it lasted, but hopefully long enough to offer some support to the ground crews battling a wildfire just north of us. Even my outdoor plants perked up in the rain. They just seem to really appreciate the natural rain as opposed to water from the tap. Sort of like us...the gifts from the hand of God are so much more meaningful.
"Lost" is wrapping up with it's final show, I believe this Sunday. I must admit, I looking forward to finding out answers from the show and no longer having the need to watch the TV on Tuesday evenings. Lost and Extreme Home Makeover are the two shows that I really enjoy watching. Seeing as it's Lost's final season, I'll only have one show that I hate to miss. I'm not a big TV person anyway, so this means even less TV time. I find that the shows that are on TV are so filled with negatives, violence and foul language that there is very little that I desire to surround myself with. Yep, Lost fills many of those same things....but there is an underlying message to it all...at least one that I seem to be getting.
Lovely rain last evening and for some time during the night.
Got some more of my plants transplanted after work yesterday. Still need to get my potatoes done.
A busy day ahead of me today at work...I'd rather be busy than twiddling my thumbs
Birds singing outside.
A great sleep last night.
A body that was created to be a blessing (and is).
Life....what wonders are in store for me today???
Have a wonderfully blessed day, keep focused on your goals.

The wild fire just north of us has once more been whipped up by the winds and is out of control again. The crews that have been battling it are exhausted and frustrated as the ground is so tinder dry and all that they are doing seems to be of little effect. The smoke that is hanging in the air makes it difficult to breath when one is outsidefor any length of time. There have been rain clouds gathering for the past couple of days, but they seem to just float on by. Maybe today, as they seem darker and more plentiful.
Yesterday when I got home, I spent time transplanting some of the lovely plants I had purchased into their new pots and summer location. Ran out of dirt and was too tired to go and get some more. Called Garry and asked him if he would bring some home on his way home from work. Yep, he remembered. So today, I will finish my job. If there is enough dirt, I will even get my potatoes planted in the containers that I plan on using. I'm actually very excited about the potatoes.
Nothing tastes better than a freshly dug potatoe!
Love the sun, but we really need some rain...a good soaker rain.
How I've gone from a person that really had no interest or desire to do gardening, to someone who is planning gardens, planting gardens and attempting to grow things outdoors. THANKS BRE!
A good sleep last night.
A long weekend coming up this weekend....YAY...if all goes as planned...my raised garden bed will be finished and planted.
Life...it's filled with wonders, all you have to do is be open to receiving them!
Have a wonderfully blessed day,
