July 22

Thursday, July 22, 2010

My brother and SIL's anniversary today and tomorrow is Kaeli's best friends' birthday. Julie is due any day now and we keep teasing her that the baby will arrive on her birthday!
July is such a busy month with anniversaries and birthday in this family. We have two birthdays next week also. 3 anniversaries and 7 birthdays!

We had sunshine for most of the day yesterday, then thunder rolled through, no rain though. It looks like much the same predicted for today. Thank you for the warmer weather...who ever sent it out way...it's appreciated.lol

My positives:

The ability to read, I can't imagine my life without books!
Garry's results from the doctor were much better than we had hoped...thank you Lord!
Invitation to go hiking this weekend with my girls.
Life.

There is so much to be grateful for that attempting to think of all the blessings is almost overwhelming. Thank you to all who stop by and add to my daily blessings just by caring.

Hugs.
Wanda

Thunderstorms...yet again!

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Okay, you guys with all the sunshine and warm temperatures...let's share. I've do my hardest to send some of this rain your way if you'll send some sunshine our way! lol

We had thunderstorms roll through here again yesterday. Not a lot of rain with it them, but boy were there ever some boomers! We've had so much moisture that my back yard is beginning to look like a mushroom farm! Amazing what comes up out of the ground. At least the water table is rising once again...and that is a blessing. Wild fires aren't happening...at least in our area anymore, another blessing. The trees are flourishing and I haven't had to water my garden in weeks!

I had a wonderful opportunity to share with a co-worker yesterday some of information I've gathered from the workshops and study group I've been attending. Today, I'm meeting with another friend after work, as she too, wants to have more informtion.

My positives:

Opportunities to share with others.
My new terra cotta cooking pot arrived yesterday. YAY! I'm excited. My other one cracked and I really missed it. I actually bought this one online through Cookware.com and was excited to receive it so quickly and in beautiful condition. I'm new to this ordering things online...so had some concerns.
Garry gets his medical results today.
Life...what a blessing to wake up each morning and know that I have a new day ahead of me to be the best that I can be. Yesterday is already the past, I can't change it, tomorrow isn't guaranteed...I only have today to enjoy and be excited about.

Have a wonderful Day, thanks for stopping by for a visit. Find your blessings in your day and enjoy them.

Hugs,
Wanda

    I'll take your rain! I LOVE rainy days (although the temp still stays over 100 deg even with the rain here in the summer). But, love it, love it, love it.

Funny how we all crave what we don't have, isn't it!

Actually I appreciate my weather, but it does require I plan my exercise so I don't totally die from the heat.

It's back to work once again!

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

My long weekend is now over and it's back to the grind stone. I'm grateful that I had one day of sunshine throughout my time off. Of course, yesterday was miserable weather and today is supposed to be sunshine! Go figure! lol
We are supposed to be getting a mixed bag of weather for the remainder of this week and then by the weekend actually getting some warm weather and sunshine! YAY!

This morning as I got out of bed, I realized that the days are definitely getting shorter. It is now only predawn when I have to get up. My windows are all covered in dew as it is only 10 degrees outside. Definitely grab a jacket before heading out the door time once again. Siggghhhh!

I attended my first study group last evening. An interesting session. There were nine of us there, but it appears that perhaps only seven of us will be returning next week, or least there on a regular basis. This study session is a 12 week course, so I'm thinking that missing sessions might not be that good...but who knows. It was a great session is learning how to become a connected group as we work together to develop our spiritual gifts.

My Positives:

The opportunity to meet new people and to work together towards developing a stronger inner peace.
A new work week ahead of me.
Feeling more energized.
The feeling that I'm once again moving forward and towards a goal.
Life in general, it's just plain wonderful. Yes it has it's bumps in the road, but by focusing on all that is positive, the negative stuff is not so bad.

Have a wonderful Tuesday,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Thanks for your positive outlook and leadership, Wanda. I'm glad you can share with us that life is wonderful, sometimes it is too easy to forget what a miracle it is. I hope your study group works out and you have an easy transition back to work after being off. Take care, Kathleen

Mother Nature, not done yet!

Monday, July 19, 2010

We aren't done yet with the thunderstorms and rain! They started again last night and appear to have settled in for the day again. At least the earth is getting a refill of it's water needs here. We've had so much rain that we have mushrooms growing on our back lawn! Some of them are huge! The stems on them are about 1.5 inches in diameter.
What crazy weather!

I have today off work also. I'll be heading out the door shortly to get groceries and then home to do some ironing and some reading up for tonight's study group.
I'm looking forward to the study group session.

My positives:

Another day off work, I'm having to take some of my holiday time in a piece meal fashion to get the hours down.
First study group session tonight...I'm looking forward to it.
Time for grocery shopping today in a leisurely manner.
Good news about a friend's head x-rays.
A positive attitude.
My friends and family.
God, who continues to guide me and offer me opportunities to grow spiritually.

Have a wonderful Motivation Monday...check out the daily challenge. Take the time to be motivated today.

Hugs,
Wanda

A whole day of sunshine!

Sunday, July 18, 2010

Woo Hoo, we had a whole day of sunshine yesterday! It's been awhile since that has happened, it's worthy of celebration! lol

Kaeli and I spent a couple of hours walking up and down Whyte Avenue admiring all the talented artists and their work. It was very interesting to see the different styles and topics that the artists produced. Some very talented people as well as some that have a ways to go yet with their art. I give them all credit though, because they are all better than I ever would be. It takes courage to put your art work on display for the world to see.

A great time of exercise for both of us, but eventually the crowds got to both of us and we called it a day.

My Positives:

Time spent with Kaeli (Shy had a better offer lol).
Seeing the creative talent that is so abundant locally.
Sunshine.
Spending time with my husband.
Night guard that allows me to wake up in the morning with a pain free jaw.
My garden...I'm excited to see what all it will produce.
Choosing to be all that I can be today.

Have a wonderful day, embrace your worthiness.

Hugs,
Wanda
