Well holidays are officially over and it's back to work this morning. Sigghhhh!
On the other hand, it will be an exciting and busy month as we begin our move to our new library.
I will try and take some pictures to share with you all.
We are down to one vehicle as Garry sold his car to our son. This will be an interesting case of logistics seeing as I need to be at work about 3.5 hours earlier than Garry. It can work out fine though, as long as Garry is ready to leave the house no later than 8am. I can slip away from work on my break and pick him up, he can drop me back at work and head for his own work. I can either walk home, which is about a 30 minutes walk or he can pick me up and drop me at home depending on the weather. It can work!
A great week off work and now I'm recharged and ready to face work once again.
An exciting time to look forward to as each day will be bringing something new I'm sure.
Thanksgiving Weekend coming up this weekend, so next week will be a short week for work. Yes, Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in October! lol
Our son is home from up north and starts his new job today. He got on as an apprentice pipefitter. It will be interesting to see how well he enjoys it...might be a deciding factor on whether he heads by up north again in the spring.
I love having all my children close by.
I'm happy to be back and in communication with you all again.
Have a wonderful and blessed day,

Good Morning everyone;
I'm back and feeling much more rested and settled. I could still use another week off, but that isn't going to happen any time soon, so I will just be appreciative of the time that I did have off.
Spent much of my time off, reading, meditating and helping Garry to finish some reno projects...lots still left to do, but so glad that we got the ones done that we have. Now we can clean up those areas and just enjoy them.
Garry wasn't able to get much time off (that's his place of work for you). So we took what time he could get off each day and worked with that. It did mean that we were not able to get to see his folks as much as we had wanted to. Had to make do with phone calls and more promises. His Dad is doing okay and if all works out Garry will be able to go done on his next weekend off work. Weather needs to continue to cooperate and we'll be good.
Friday, I did go in to work for a wee bit. Our department was offered the chance to go and tour our new library. It was a chance for me to see how I would fair in the new environment. I took a breathing mask with me to be on the safe side. Only had to use in a few times, so the atmosphere was not as bad as we were worried about. By the end of October when I actually get to be in the building, we are very hopeful that I won't have to wear a mask at all. ( At least in our department) YAY!
I managed to read some great books while on holidays. Even managed to spend money on a whole list of books that I've been wanting to add to my personal collection for study purposes and knowledge. One of the best ones that I read(I had actually borrowed it from the library....but ended up buying my own copy) was "The Secret Language of Your Body" by Inna Segal. This is a book that you will want to have in your own collection.
I also had time to do some online research into courses for herbal healing/homepathy and natural medicines. An area that seems to be drawing me in deeper and deeper. My meditation time has given me some further clarity on the direction I'm to walk and that was much valued. I am feeling more confident in the monumental changes that I know are coming into our lives and am laying the ground work and building a firm foundation for these changes.
These next few weeks will be very busy ones at work. We are now in the process of moving things and although I will have a weeks worth of work to catch up on starting tomorrow...I will need to remember to be flexible through out each day. Our moving schedule of items seems to change from moment to moment. I don't know how long I will actually have a desk to work at, I may find myself using a folding table temporarily. lol
Well it's time to tackle my in box and see what you have all been up to this past week. Thank you so much to everyone who worked hard at keeping things moving forward with the team. It was so nice to be able to leave everything and not worry about the team. You've all blessed me considerably.
The opportunity to walk away from the computer and not feel obligated.
A great and restful week off.
Having had the opportunity to walk through our new facility (which I will need a map for if I don't want to get lost!)
Clarity on many fronts.
The best week ever of summer weather....amazing ! We actually had warm weather and sunshine the whole time I was off! Woo Hoo! Our weather was warming this past week than it has been the whole month of August and part of September.
Feeling recharged...trusting that it lasts longer than one day back at work! lol
Time to get some home projects completed.
Lots of reading time and research time that was uninterrupted.
Being so blessed.
Missed you all, hope you have a wonderful serenity Sunday.

I'm running a bit behind schedule today, but that's okay...I'm on HOLIDAYS!
Thought I would get a blog in before taking time away from the computer and everything else that places demands on my time. Garry and I are heading out today on a few days of spending time together and relaxing.
The sun is shining...great start to my holidays!
Time with family.
A great team that I know will keep things running.
Green tomatoes are all canned either as relish or salsa. Here's hoping they taste good now after all that effort! lol
Being blessed with time.
Have a wonderful next few days...I'll see you all on the 4th of October.

As of the end of my work day today, I will be on holidays from work until October 4th. YAY! Holiday time.
I'll be online for tomorrow and Saturday for sure and then will be away. I'll post next weeks challenge, Shirl will continue with Saturday and Sunday challenges, Monday and Tuesday challenges will be whomever wants to do them, Wednesday and Thursday challenges are Mauri, Friday's are Janet. Marla has offered to do the Positive Quotes of the day, and Nancy has offered to do the weekly challenge for October 2. Thank you all for helping out.
We will be heading to check on Garry's folks in Saskatchewan and if time allows one of his aunts. After that, we have no major plans, only a bit of time to take for ourselves.
Today I need to finish packing up what I can at my desk at work and leaving things ready in case there is a change in the moving schedule and things in our department start to move over sooner than we expect.
Last day at work for a few days.
Sunshine predicted for today and possibly temperstures in the two digits! Woo Hoo.
I'm tired from not sleeping well last night, but I've only today to get through and then a lovely nap to look forward to when I get home.
All my green tomato salsa fixings are all prepared and ready for me to begin canning.
Being blessed with another day of life.
Have a wonderful day, keep on moving towards your goals.

Another day of being alive and having the choice to be all that I can be. Now that is a great blessing to start one's day with.
Two more working days until I have a few days off. After yesterday's meetings though, I'm not sure I will be looking forward to going back to work..yikes...it sounds like things will be very crazy by the time I return on the October 4th. I'll need to have all my desk labelled and packed before leaving work tomorrow, as there is a possibility that our department will be making the move over to the new location sooner than we had expected. I will still be staying at the old location though until the end of October, in part, due to my chemical sensitivities and in part due to needing someone at the old location to redirect deliveries and other sundry duties. Which means that by the time I get to go to the new location...I'll still have all my desk and work area to arrange. Should be an interesting time, lol
Got the rest of the green tomatoes all chopped up and sitting in the fridge waiting for the additional of all the other veggies. I'm going to try my hand at making some salsa, and then freezing the rest of the mixture for adding to soups and stews. My crockpot will love me this winter!
Nice long chat with my SIL yesterday. I have talked to her for weeks. It was nice to catch up on each others news.
Kaeli phoned for a chat yesterday also.
Got Shavon's birthday present and card mailed...I'm hopefully that she will get in on Friday.
We are supposed to get some sunshine today...YAY!
It's a great day to be alive!
God, who always is there for me, to chat with, to cry with, to just hang out with.
Have a wonderful Wednesday...celebrate the day.
