Sunshine, beautiful sunshine.

Sunday, June 13, 2010

Ahhh, what a glorious sun filled day yesterday was. Once I had my massage, transplanted some plants, made a visit down to Garry and tested out some vehicles, came home and finished the laundry...it was time to spend some relaxing time out on the back deck with my book, water bottle and the sun!

Once the sun moved off my garden area, I misted the plants thoroughly (mostly to keep the dirt wet so the cat from next door would stop "visiting".) Then I decided to try out a remedy I'd been told about...cayenne pepper sprinkled over the garden is supposed to keep the cats away. So dug out my "spice" and headed back out to the garden and very liberally sprinkled it all over the garden as well as along the tops of the quarry stone border. I'll check in a bit to see if it made any difference!

My positives:
My massage treatment yesterday went a long way to working the kink out of my back. Wendy also did some Reiki on me, which was very appreciated.
Laundry all done.
Garry, Kaeli and I headed out to Kelsey's for a great salad supper last evening. None of us were very hungry, and a salad sounded like a great supper.
Lovely phone conversation with my aunt. Caught up on each others news.
Phoned my friend who lost her son a month ago to see how she is doing. It was nice to talk with her once again.
A gorgeous sunny day outside today also! Woo Hoo. More family time.

Have a wonderful serenity Sunday. Make sure that you take some time today to recharge yourself and relax.

Massage Day YAY!

Saturday, June 12, 2010

Yay, today is my monthly massage day and boy do I need it today. A couple of days ago, I moved funny at work and ended up with a "charlie horse" in my back. It just doesn't want to go away, so I'm very hopeful that Wendy will be able to work it out this morning. When I wake up in the morning, it's not too bad, but as the day progresses, it progresses.

Brought a plant home from work to transplant this weekend. Poor thing really needs a new pot. It's been in the same pot for the 10 years I've been there and last Monday, it just toppled over onto the floor! I will give it some much needed new dirt and a pot and hopefully it will continue to thrive.
Some how I absorbed the duty of tending to the plants at work. We have several in our department, which I'm very appreciative of. They not only look nice, but they are ones that help to keep the air clean. A very big plus in my opinion.

Looks like Garry might have my vehicle sold once again. This one lasted the usual amount of time...6 months. My last vehicle(Rendevous) I got very attached to, as I had it for just over a year. Usually the vehicles I drive are only in my possession for 6 months. I'm blessed that Garry works in the industry and I always have safe vehicles to drive. So today, I'm supposed to go down to Garry's place of business and we'll go through some options of what I might be driving next!

My Positives:
A beautiful sunny day is shaping up.
Laundry almost finished.
Massage day.
I get to look at new vehicles today and possibly find one that meets all Garry's criteria.
I love my new tool for extracting dandelions from our lawn. It's earth friendly! and it actually works!
Kaeli came over for a visit last evening...always fun to spend time with her.
Garry was home last evening also...I really love having my family around me.
There is a full day ahead of me to enjoy and be creative in.

Have an awesome day. Take the gift you have been given "today" and enjoy it to the very last second.

Yay, it's Friday!

In anticipation of a sunny day, I'm wearing summery clothes and sandals to work! It's supposed to be warmer and sunny today, so I'm choosing to believe the weather people. lol

I had a brief phone call from Quin last night letting us know that he is busy and wanting to leave us the phone number where he can be reached. It's a radio phone, so talking on them is a bit different than your every day average phone. It was nice to hear his voice.

My positives:
Anticipating sunshine today.
I have a three day weekend again. Work wants me to try and use up some of my overtime hours, so I'm making them into long weekends.
Life in general is just plain great.

Have a wonderful day today, create the kind of day you desire.


PS...I'm running a bit later than usual this morning..hence the brief blog.

    Hi Wanda! I was "feeling ya" on the phone call from your dear one. I'm here to read you "brief" blog. It feels nice to be able to connect. I got up early to see my company off. Now I have a couple of weeks to use my spark tools before I take off for the Northeast! I'm looking forward to getting caught up. Have a wonderful Saturday.

It's NOT raining (yet)! We are supposed to be done with the rain at least for the next 3 days...let's see how true that is. lol

Today is Garry's eldest sister's birthday, so must remember to pop her off an email yet this morning.

I ended up coming home from work about 12:30 yesterday. I moved funny in my chair and ended up with a "charlie horse" of all things in my right back muscle that just wouldn't let loose. The longer I sat the worse it got. Came home and got my wheat heating pad out and lay on that for about an hour until it was time to head out the door for the dentists. Came home again and used it again for the rest of the evening. It eventually let loose. I'm taking my wheat bag to work with me this morning just as a percaution. Very strange, I've never had something like occur before.
Got my impressions all done at the dentists for my night guard. I go on the 22 to pick it up. Yay! I'm hoping that it doesn't take too long to get used to wearing it at night.

My positives:
The "charlie horse" in my back let loose finally...what a relief that is.
Impressions for my night guard are all done.
It's not raining this morning. I'm hoping that some sitting in the sun after work might be in order!
It's Friday tomorrow...woo hoo. My favorite day of the week. lol
No major yard work planned for the weekend. Just general gardening after a week of rain.
Family and friends.
A warm and snug bed to crawl into each night, a roof over our heads and food upon on table...how blessed we are.

Have a wonderful day. Make someone else's day with a random act of kindness.

It's a frosty one out this morning. Only 8 degrees out there! Where is summer???

I can't believe that we still have the furnace running to keep the house warm in June! More rain predicted for every day this week. But the plus...we are supposed to get sunshine and warmer for Saturday and Sunday! Woo Hoo. Perhaps I'll be able to sit out on my deck and enjoy it. Oh well, if we didn't have this yucky weather, what would most of us have to talk about. lol.

This is a big birthday/anniversary month in our family. My SIL and nephew had birthdays on the 4 & 5. Today is Garry's youngest sisters birthday, tomorrow is his oldest sisters birthday as well as his aunt and uncles anniversary. The 15th is another SIL birthday, then the 17th is another of Garry's brothers birthday as well as his nieces. The 24th is Garry's eldest brothers anniversay and then the 26th is friends anniversary. Yep, it's a great month of celebrations! Don't even get me started on July!lol

My Positives:
All this rain is doing the earth some good. It's nice to see the rain soaking in and not running off and down the drains.
The weekend is supposed to be warm and sunny.
I get to go to the dentist's today and have the impressions taken for a night guard. Hopefully it will help to keep me from grinding my teeth at night.
I have a warm home to reside in and a warm vehicle to get me back and forth to work.
Being able to go to the dentist and have my teeth taken care of.
Massage Saturday coming up this weekend...yay!
Finished another book in the Amish series that I'm reading...it really brings home the need to live a more simplified life and that our strength comes through our faith and community.
Life...when we open ourselves to really appreciate all the blessings that come our way each day...we truly become the people we are meant to be.

Have an awesome day. Keep your focus on the positives things happening in your life, then the negatives don't seem so bad.
