October 28

Thursday, October 28, 2010

Only two more days left in the old library. This morning at 8:30 I will once again head over to the new library, don my respirator mask and preceed to introduce the new evacuation plans to our staff. Thank goodness for Sally, my valued assistant through all of this planning. Sheldon from emergency services will attend this morning and help us answer any questions that staff have. We are in a more unique situation that we have been previously. Although we are our own entity, we now fall under the umbrella of the County in a more direct way than ever before. Because the new library is all part and parcel of a new community complex called "center in the park", many of the tasks that we used to be responsible for, we no longer need to be concerned with. YAY! It should be an interesting morning.
Once I'm done there, I will see about trying to organize my desk and then head back to the old library to help take care of things there. Tomorrow will see me, opening the old library for Susan to gather up any books that have been dropped off and then we'll head over to the new library for the day (hopefully)

My Positives:
The end of this move is really appearing!
Having a respirator mask for when I need it.
Learning to just go with the flow and not worrying about the little stuff.
My new mantra " Just let it go".
The blessings that flow into each day and the awareness of them.
Guidance and protection.

Have a wonderfully blessed day.
Hugs,
Wanda

    Ahh, you are so close now to being out of the old and into the new building, how exciting. I would take the wind over the snow, but the white stuff probably isn't too far away, we have had it snow in Oct. before, we are suppose to go down to 32 tonight, sure glad I put the flannel sheets on. Have a great relaxed weekend. I've got coffe hour tomorrow morning, only have more thing to bake, but wanted to do it in the morning so it'll still be warm when I serve it. Have a great evening.

    Our son Tim worked at our local library while in college. He too was involved in transferring all the books, periodicals and people from the old library to the new. He would come home dragging!!!

My thoughts and prayers are with you friend. Even though you have one of the most positive attitudes i know of, I also know that if anything can go wrong it will.

Keep smiling and thank you so much for all your support

What a day yesterday turned out to be.

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

What a day yesterday was. I got lots of steps in with walking from one end of the old library to the other several times during the morning. Supervising the disposal of several items that we are not taking to the new library, is a great way of burning calories.
Then at 1pm someone came over to man the place while I headed to the new one to meet up with Sally to finalize our evacuation plans (at least the first edition of them *she says tongue in cheek*). I took my mask with me just in case it was necessary. My first mistake. I should have checked prior to entering the building as to whether or not the air quality was okay. Needles to say things took a downward turn from the moment I walked in and hurried up to the 2nd level to meet Sally. The lower level, elevators and stairwells were totally off limits to me. And even with my mask the 2nd level became bad news for me. My breathing was becoming more difficult and for the first time in a long time, I scared myself by staying too long. Sally helped me back downstairs and outside. Once outside where I could begin to breath a bit better, I was able to walk back to my vehicle and pull it around to a closer location to the library. In the meanwhile, Sally had phoned our go-to guy in emergency services and Sheldon brought over a respirator mask for me and stayed with us as we completed the plans that needed to be completed. Yayfor Sheldon even being available at such short notice. He was a huge help in helping us to confirm our plans. Besides, now with the respirator mask, I can go pretty much where ever I need to in the library. Lesson to self...have the proper mask first, ask questions about air quality before entering building, in other words...be prepared!

My positives:
An awesome group of people to work with that all understand my problems with chemical smells.
Sheldon being available at such short notice and having on hand a respirator mask.
My Halloween costume is in place...I can now go as Darth Vader's mother!*grin*
That as I got up this morning, my chest is not so heavy and my eyes although still a bit puffy, are not as swollen as yesterday. By the end of the day, I should be good.
I've been blessed with another day of life and the opportunity to make it the best day I possibly can.


Have a wonderful day. Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I appreciate your willingness to read my ramblings.

Hugs,
Wanda

    So glad that mask was available for you, I think that would be scary with as sensitive as you are to the chemical odors, glad you are improving. Have a good Wednesday.

We still have lots of snow on the ground, but it seems to have melted off the sidewalks and streets. Yay, no shoveling as yet. Listening to the weather forecast last night and I may not have to be shoveling for awhile yet! The weather is supposed to warm up over the next few days to a balmy plus 10 by Saturday. How exciting!

Thank you for all the prayers for Afton's safe trip yesterday. She arrived safe and sound. I'm thinking that over the winter months, we might not see her as often as that stretch of road is awful for fog and snow blowing conditions.

My Positives:
Only one more week of Study group. I've enjoyed it, but it has lasted much longer than the original 12 weeks due to delays, people being away etc. and it's now run into other commitments that I have. Juggling the time schedule and tiredness from moving at work is taking it's toll.
Afton's safe arrival back in Red Deer.
Someone is coming over from the new library today to cover for me so that I can get over there to finalize the evacuations plans. This week will see us all over in the building by Friday. The move will be done.
A great night's sleep last night, I'm ready to face the day and all that it might entail.
I've set my intentions for a wonderful day and I'm moving ahead to embrace it.
God, my family and friends for always being here for me.


Have a wonderful Tuesday. Believe in yourself and your worthiness.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Glad to hear Afton had a safe trip. Great, the move is almost complete. Hope you get to attend that conference. We are getting the high winds today that Bobbie said they had in Chicago yesterday, there are tornnado warnings out, not for our area yet, but that is a good possiblity. Have a terrific Tuesday.

    Praise God for Afton's safe trip yesterday. So glad you got to spend time with her and all the friends. Sounds like a very busy week ahead for you. Hope the weekend brings you the rest and relaxation you need and deserve. We have been getting steady rain for two days. So happy it isn't snow. Snow is beautiful on the ground but isn't safe for my very elderly neighbors and they love being out and about. Enjoy looking at it...glad you don't have to shovel yet.
Blessings and hugs,
Helen

Winter has arrived!

Monday, October 25, 2010

Woke up this morning to winter wonderland out there! Lots of moisture in the snow that is falling so the roads are going to be super icy this morning.
Prayers for our son's girlfriend(Afton) who needs to travel to Red Deer this morning. It's a 2 hour drive and that stretch of the road is always bad.

All the kids and their boyfriend/girlfriend came over for supper last night. It was a fun time with all of them here. It was great to see Afton. She had come home for the weekend. She is going to college in Red Deer, so we don't see her that often.

A busy week ahead of me at work. Several people still coming this week to clear out items they have spoken for in the old library. Our movers will be making their final clear out on Thursday. So starting either Thursday or Friday, I will also be in the new location. YAY!

My Positives:

All my children here for supper last evening. Kyle and Afton along also.
Remote start on my vehicle...I'll need to start it about 15 minutes before I have to leave to ensure all the ice and snow is cleared from the wind shield.
A nice lazy weekend to recharge and do some meditating.
Knee is completely healed.
Discovered a conference being held in Vancouver, BC in March of 2011 by Doreen VIrtue. Dr. Wayne Dyer, Cheryl Richardson and Louise Hay as well as 3 others that I'm not familiar with will all be speaking. I'm making the intention known to the universe that I want to attend. Very excited about this conference. I have books by all four of the first authors.
I am making progress on some decision making in regards to some areas of study I would like to do.
I am positively charged.

Have a wonderful and positive Monday.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Remote starting? That sounds like a wonderful invention. Beats a scraper and a kettle of hot water, which were my usual tools, along with hoping the window warmers had enough ooomph to shift some of the ice too. :-)
Sorry the snow caught up with you.

That conference sounds wonderful. I'm sure that the Universe will co-operate and a way to be there will open up for you. :-)

I hope all is safe for Afton. :-)
Hugs,
Lex xxx

    Well - that's it then - Winter has arrived. Keep close tabs on your wonderful remote - it sounds like the 'cheery' on a snow-capped Monday!

Sending out good vibs so you can attend your Conference. I think they are one of the best super renewal tools ever invented ... lots of people with similar passions connecting to exchange positive and useful information - it's so regenerative. I hope you get to go.

Happy start to the week!

    You sound like you are geared up and ready for the week ahead of you, WTG. My weekend was a good one also. You can have the snow, we are having rain, but warmer temps, that may all change near the middle of the week. How nice you, your kids and their friends could all spend time together. Will pray for traveling mercies for Afton and you, may you both arrive safely to your destinations. Have a marvelous Monday.

I'm convinced....

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Yesterday, I had blogged about my left knee giving me some problems. It had gotten so bad that the night before, trying to turn over in bed was very painful. I could walk without a great deal of trouble, but bending my knee was a whole other story. I mentioned having been prompted by my guides to purchase a book called " The Secret Language of your Body" at an earlier date. I decided to follow what the book suggested as a remedy. I'm very excited to report today that my knee is prefectly fine. No Pain! In fact about an hour after I tried the "clearing" and released all the negatives my knee was feeling much better. Any lingering pain, I think was only due to swelling that was going down.
I am definitely a very convinced person. Our bodies are an amazing piece of creation.

My Positives:
A healed left knee
A grateful heart that I listened to the prompting of my guides and purchased the book I was meant to purchase.
Only a very light dusting of white outside this morning. In fact, it looks like it's mainly sleet. Yay! No yard full of snow yet.
Serenity Sunday, and a day to just rejoice in being alive and reflect on all the blessings this past week has held.
A life that is filled with blessings.

Have a wonderful day, take the time to reflect on all that you have.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Glad your knee is doing better. Yes, our bodies are truly amazing, He knew what he was doing when he created us in His image. DD and I got the invites all done this afternoon, all we need to do now is she is doing the address labels and then we'll get the stamps and they'll be ready to go the first week in Nov., they are pretty, I'll have to try and scan one so you can see how they look. I had made Halloween cards for my two GGK's and my DD called and said a little person wanted to talk with me, Isabella got on the phone and said "grandma thank you for the card" she's so sweet, she's 4 and brother is 2. It was 71 here today, but is suppose to be colder by Thursday, I am hopeing it won't be too cold on Halloween for the trick or treaters. Have a great week.

Lots of Hugs,
Shirl
