The snow, they say is a comin'...

Wednesday, April 16, 2008

Weather man is predicting more snow heading our way! As much as 30cm! Mother earth does need the moisture, just wish it would come in the form of rain though.
Great day at work today, I like it when I'm busy. The selectors have started to get themselves in gear and have been sending orders to me in droves! Makes me happy when I have lots to do.
Nothing is more boring than trying to look busy and there's not much to do.
Aquasizes tonight...looking forward to going. Missed going last week do to scheduling conflicts. Funny how your body begins to crave that activity! It know longer enjoys being inactive.
Found a stability ball on sale yesterday, now I just have to inflate it. I've been trying to use my daugher's, but seeing as she is just a tiny little thing, when I sit on it, I feel like I have my knees up around my ears! LOL.
I enjoyed reading the blogs that I subscribe to. The virtual snowball fight was fun...best part was teaching Kathy how to tobbagan downhill (hee hee) and then trying to persuade her to lick the metal pole like a popsicle! (hope she recovers soon!lol)
As I was thinking about all the silliness that we have in our posts and blogs, I realized how much it is similar to my work environment...it's the best stress reliever a person can ever have...Laughter and smiling. thanks everyone.
Must go and get some supper on the go....have an awesome evening and watch out for the snowballs flying.

    Thanda,
ThI Than't Thet Thy thongue thoff this thole...
In other words... I can't get my tongue off this pole! hee hee That was a dirty trick... lol Take that... Smack squish Splat... lol
That was a very muddie snowball... hee hee
But I loved the toboggan downhill ride just fine... Except for the part where I hit the TREE! emoticon LOL
What fun... And I agree that it sure does release stress... Playing is great... We actually do that alot on the chat too... I think some of them think we are kinda crazy... but hey fun is fun...

I'm glad that you were busy today... That always makes the days go by faster... Which was good for you today... you wanted to get home to the snowball fight... lol Well Zinggggg Splat! lol

Oh and I've heard that Marla love the YELLOW snowballs... hee hee Shhhhhh...

Have a wonderful evening...

((HUGS))

    Wanda - We had "silliness" going on where I used to work too. It sure helped the time go by faster! I'm glad the folks you work with have a good sense of humor. It makes life easier, ya know?

Oh, enjoy your snowfall that will be coming. I just love the stuff. Splaattt! Oops! Couldn't resist. Incoming snowball!

I'm enjoying today....

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

I'm enjoying today and tomorrow and Thursday...cause Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday we are supposed to get more snow! Predicting about 30 cm (2.5 feet). Doesn't the nursery rhyme say "April showers, bring May flowers"????? Snow is NOT showers! It may add moisture to the ground, but it's cold moisture! LOL.
Anyone up for a snowball fight? We'll let that inner child out and do some romping in the snow, maybe make some snow angels, build forts and I'll lob my super duper snowball at you! LOL
Really enjoyed my son's visit last night. Even though it was very late for me going to bed, the 5 hours sleep I managed to get before heading to work this morning saw me through the day. (That and 2 cups of coffee that I drank!)
The purchases that our Bookmobile staff made while on our ULS trip to Calgary last Friday arrived today...wow, that's fast service! Was able to get them all input into our data base and received. They will probably have their shipment in circulation early next week.
Did some walking tonight rather than going to aquasizes. I didn't think I would be able to handle the late night again tonight if I went to aquasizes. Walked for just over an hour, so feel like I did something at least. Between all my exercises today I'm around my average of 100 minutes per day. I still marvel at how I am accomplishing that amount, considering that last August I was basically a couch potato!
Thank you to the Positive ladies that took me along on a virtual frolic at the beach today as well as running through the fields of flowers! It was fun!
Well, my pillow is calling my name and I will be obedient! Yes, Master....I'm coming!

Good night all, rejuvenate your body with some restful sleep and I'll see you tomorrow.

    Wanda - Yes...I'm up for a virtual snowball fight...but look out! I can still zing them with the best of 'em! Splaaaat! OOPs.... sorry couldn't resist!

So nice that your visit with your Son went well. I'm glad you got to see him. Isn't it wonderful getting together with family? I just love it.

100 minutes? Wow. You're really moving it Wanda! I'm impressed! I need to keep upping mine too. Today sounds like a good day for me to start that. Thanks. See, you've motivated me to get some more minutes in. Is your middle name Motivator? No... I think it's Wanda Positive! That suits you as well!

    I'm so glad that you enjoyed the fun with us today... We always bring you along... Even if you don't know it until later... lol
And I think I can find a virtual coat for a virtual snowball fight... lol We have been doing that on the Chat for months... Cheryl throws real Zingers.... lol And Marla too... They are the masters... I had to use Oranges, because I didn't have any snow... lol But everyone loved it... It loaded them up with vitamin C... lol

So playing in the snow it will be... But Thursday don't' forget your blankie to keep the creepy crawlies off you... You'd never make it in Florida... lol We have so many bugs... yuck...

Glad you enjoyed your sons visit...

Hope you get lots of sleep tonight...

Need to get this done....

Monday, April 14, 2008

I just finished reading Kathy and Marla's blogs and need to scurry over here and get mine done, cause they are on their way!
Hey you guys, don't forget that I have to work during the day, it takes me longer to catch up to you people! LOL.
Meetings all morning to keep me busy at work and then safety issues to deal with....but now they are resolved, yippee! I feel like I got a lot accomplished today!
It tried to snow this morning, but I think the rain dance that we did in our department made it change it's mind! Instead we got a little drizzle of rain and then just gloom...oh the things we do to help out the world! We really could use a nice rain to wash things up. After listening to the weather news this evening, we are supposed to be in for snow and cold again this weekend! YIKES. The plus side of that is, we are almost mid April, so it won't last long.
I enjoyed my day today, Okay Mondays are not my favorite day of the week, but it was a pretty good Monday. My son is arriving this evening and plans to spend the night....I am looking forward to his visit. My youngest got called for a job interview on Thursday. She would really like to have a different job than the ones she does now.
I got my exercising all in early today, which means I can sit and visit with my son tonight.
It's payday this week....yep, that's always nice to look forward to.
My husband should be home early this evening too, so he'll have time for a visit with all of us.
Oh yeah, the prize that we won....it arrived today by courier. It looks like a power source of some sort...looks like one of those ones you can use to jump start your car or run smaller electrical items off of . I haven't unpacked it, thought I would leave that exciting job for my husband!
Definitely a pretty good day for a Monday!
Have a wonderful evening everyone, give someone a hug and tell them you care.

    Wanda - I love the idea of your "Rain Dance"! LOL I can imagine you all scurrying around in a circle & conjuring up those rain clouds!
I'm excited about your "prize". Can't wait to find out what it really is. How can you stand not peeking? LOL I'm like a little kid when it comes to things like that!
Oh Wanda - Enjoy your time with your Son. How wonderful that is to have him home.
I'm so glad you had a "pretty good day for a Monday!"
((((Love ya)))) Marla

    Hey my friend... No need to rush on my account... ARE YOU DONE YET!!!! LOL ( just kidding... no pressure here...)

I'm glad that your Monday Rain Dance Day is done ( lol) and that your Monday Night is here... Enjoy your visit with your son... lol
I hope that Shy likes the job she's going for on Thursday... Is she the one that wants to work with books? Best of luck to her...

Oh and that winter weather you are expecting... That's just me pushing it back up your way... It's been a little nippy here for me... Hope it doesn't stay long and Spring comes to stay... You need flowers to look at while you walk...

Hope you have a nice evening with your son...

Dreaming....

Sunday, April 13, 2008

This morning I went out for a walk before the day really began in my household. My husband had gotten up earlier than usual and made a nice breakfast for the two of us, so I was fueled up and ready to get some exercise. I was rather amazed at the number of people out jogging at that early time in the morning. I had a great opportunity to say "good Morning" to 29 people during my 45 minute walk! It was actually rather nice to realize how many others are on the same path to keeping or working towards a healthier lifestyle. The weather was cool this morning, just right for walking, by this afternoon we reached an temperature of +23 c (73.4 F). My husband and I laughed as we drove to home depot this afternoon about how this was the first time this year we were driving with the windows down!
Spent the afternoon relaxing on the deck (we brought out all the lawn furniture today), reading a book and enjoying the quiet and the sun. Also dreaming about the new deck that we would like to build this year!
My husband decided that a BBQ was in order for tonight's meal, so BBQ'd lemon/pepper chicken breasts, rice and alfredo vegetables. Salad as a side dish. He's a right good chef with the BBQ....I love this time of year when he does the cooking! lol.
Good thing I went for a walk this morning, because other than walking around Home Depot (which took us an hour, too many things to see lol), I was basically lazy today.
Hope everyone had a wonderful day and just enjoyed being.

    Oh too funny...
Both Yours and Marla's husbands cooked you breakfast and you and Donna both had BBQ's today... What a wonderful day... I'm so glad that you were able to enjoy the outdoors... I just love this time of year. And talk about Dreaming... Andy has started cleaning the pool and adding on to our deck... I can't wait for it to be completed... Ok see what you started... I've got the guy working and he's still out of town... hee hee
So happy that today was so nice and that you got to greet so many people... Wow... That's a lot of people out trying to get healthy... They all want to be just like you... LOL

Have a great evening...

((hugs))

    Hi Wanda. How nice that you passed so many people on your morning walk. Just wondering how early you got going? We went out about 8:30. I had to wait for the girls to eat breakfast.

There's nothing wrong with dreaming about a new deck. I'd love to have a deck. Nice of your hubby to BBQ dinner tonight. You need & deserve a break!

This was one of those days that I planned nothing & just did what I wanted too. I think they're the best kind. Glad you enjoyed your relaxing day! ((((Hugs)))) Marla

Woo Hoo, I think we are getting a taste of Summer!

Saturday, April 12, 2008

Today, we bypassed Spring altogether and headed straight into a day of Summer! +19c today. It was absolutely wonderful. Warm sunshine, people walking around in shorts and tank tops (we northerers are a tough breed!) Supposed to be the same tomorrow. I just love it when the sun is shining and you feel so alive.
Have had a super day today. My day started off with my monthly massage. It's my treat for staying on track each month. Today, I arranged for my husband to also have a treatment. He has been under so much stress for the past few weeks with having to cover management positions as well as do his own job. Today he had the day off and what a great opportunity to help out his day! It's so nice when you are able to do something special for someone else that they weren't expecting. Fills your heart with such a warm feeling.
Heard from Nancy Jane today, and all is well in her world. Kathee3 has gone on vacation and stopped in to say goodbye.
Marla had a relaxing day, which inspired the rest of us to think about enjoying the moment also. Kathy shared an adorable picture of her dog when he was a puppy....one of those "awwwww how cute" pictures...thanks Kathy! Donna, I'm stopping by in a few moments to say hi, put the tea kettle on!
My son phoned and hopes to now get home to see us on Monday, he wasn't able to make it the last time. He got called back to work. So now I have something great to look forward to on Monday.
Yep, it was one beautiful, sunshine filled day today. Going to have to bring the lawn furniture out!
Have an great evening.

    Wanda - Sounds like you had a wonderful day out there in that glorious sunshine! I like summer - just not the humidity. I'm so happy for you & your hubby that you got your messages. I'll bet you can't wait to see your son on Monday. Give him a great big Mom Hug!!! Enjoy your Sunday & keep smiling! ((((Love)))) Marla
