One more weekend of celebration to get through and we are into a New year and starting the cycle all over again! This has been a very busy year and a very good one.

Christmas was wonderful at our house. All three of our children spent Christmas eve with us as well as coming over Christmas morning to open gifts together. They did head their separate ways later in the day, which was fine as they had commitments to attend Christmas celebrations with with their girl/boy friends families too. Garry and I enjoyed a very relaxed rest of Christmas day and then Shy and her boyfriend headed back to our home in the evening for some more visiting.

Boxing day saw us heading over to my oldest brothers for a quick visit and lunch and then back home again to enjoy the peace and quiet.
Garry needs to head into the office this morning, I get one more day off work. I'll catch up on some cleaning up and enjoy the day off work.

My Positives:
A great phone call from my middle brother.
A phone call from our Granddaughter.
A lovely Christmas with family.
No snow, so didn't have to do any shoveling.
We are heading to Red Deer at the end of this week for the New Year's weekend. We'll bring in the new year with Garry's siblings.
I had a lovely chat with our Nancy Jane.
I did not over indulge with calories...YAY!
I am blessed.

Have a wonderful day all, if you are heading back to work today, have a great day.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Sounds like you had a lovely Christmas with your family and enjoying your time off. My internet has not been working well, I am surprised to be able to get here today, but very glad. We had our family Christmas yesterday at youngest DD's in Paw Paw, MI. The weather turned out to be sunny and the roads were dry, always a good thing and even traffic wasn't too bad, we had a nice day with family. I am thinking about undecorating today. It's almost time to say goodbye to 2010 and greet a New Year, enjoy this last holiday of 2010.

Hugs,
Shirl

    Good Morning Sunshine!
I am getting ready to usher in the New Year. I think I've been given my word for the year. I'm waiting until we get right on top of the year before I "reveal" it. I'm trying it on for size and discerning if this is from spirit or me forcing the issue. Time will tell. I tracked my food and I'm about to go to Macy's to return or exchange some gifts that Santa dropped off here. Enjoy your time off and I look forward to traveling a bit closer in the coming weeks!
Love to you and yours,
Nancy

    Wanda, sounds like a beautiful family Christmas! Enjoy your extra day off...and just in case you wonder where the sn*w is, it's here...at least 11 inches with more falling. So happy to have this week off work!

Blessings!

Christmas Eve is here and our big meal of the season occurs this evening. I'll be heading out for some last minute grocery shopping in a bit. Gathering all the fresh veggies etc.

Wishing everyone a wonderfully blessed and happy Christmas. Please don't drink and drive.

Hugs,
Wanda

One more day of work....

Thursday, December 23, 2010

One more day of work and then 4 days off! Yay, Christmas is almost here. I'm as ready as I'm going to be at this stage of the game. I have a few last minute grocery things to pick up tomorrow and then I'm set.

Looking back over the past year, I see a year filled with busy, a year filled with changes and a year filled with multiple blessings. I'm looking forward to a new year filled with many changes, many blessings and perhaps not quite so busy!

Wishing you all a wonderfully blessed Christmas, wonderful memories and most of all Health.

hugs,
Wanda

Although I didn't list my positives this morning...they are there! *grin*

    Wanda, if you're available, I could use lots of help to get ready for Christmas! :) Seriously, I'm so far behind...but decided that I will do my part for the environment by sending e-cards to the rest of my card list...and take a deep breath as I do that.

Have a thought-filled Thursday!

It's one of those days where there is not much to report. Yesterday was a typical busy day at work. Then home to do some relaxing.
The temperatures were cold enough yesterday morning to cause the staff entrance security lock to not work, which meant that everytime someone arrived at work, I would have to run down two flights of stairs and let them in and then walk back up a second set of stairs to get back to my desk. All I can say is that I burned a lot of calories yesterday with all those stairs. YAY! Temperatures are still cold this morning, so I'll find out when I get to work today whether we have a repeat of yesterday or whether facilities has been able to fix the issue.

My positives:
Unexpected exercise in my day yesterday. Always a bonus at this time of year.
I only have a couple of stocking stuffers to pick up and then I really am finished shopping for Christmas.
Gifts are all wrapped and ready to place under the tree.
Meal preparations are all in place for Christmas eve.
Pay day today...which means that I can ensure that I start the new year with no bills. YAY!
Life...it is a blessing and we are incredibly blessed as a family.

Have a wonderful, safe and happy Christmas. If you are traveling...safe travels.

Hugs,
Wanda

Winter Solstice

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

The shortest day of the year...yay...tomorrow the days begin to get longer!
The once in a life time event of the lunar eclipse was one I really wanted to see. I was awake several times through the night, but each time I attempted to get a glimpse of the event, I wasn't able to. Not that the skies weren't perfectly clear where we were, but the location of the moon and our windows weren't working together. Siggghhhh! I did not want to get dressed and head out into the cold to observe, so I will join the ranks of the many who didn't see this event.

I have a busy day at work today. My selectors went in store shopping on Friday and I have several boxes of new books to receive today and prepare for processing. Yay, the budgets are getting spent.

My positives:

I'm finished with my shopping for Christmas.
My nutmeg logs are all made and iced...my son will be thrilled.
We are closed Christmas eve, so it won't be a rush to make Christmas eve supper.
Pay day tomorrow.
How blessed we are to have a warm place to live, food on our table and to be able to buy things.
Sharing.
Friends and family.

Have a wonderful Tuesday, keep the joy in your heart, life is worth it.

Hugs,
Wanda

Have a great day! Hugs and blessings!
