As I was lying in bed last night, I suddenly realized that I had not posted this weeks new challenge. My mind was a complete blank on what to even come up with. So I did the best thing that I could, said a prayer and asked for guidance. This morning I woke up and my first thought was the word "appreciation". Hmmm, okay...well guidance...I need help with this one. And as always, when I ask for guidance it is delivered. I like that the challenges are simple and easy for all to be involved with. Enjoy "appreciation week".
Garry had the day off work yesterday and we picked up Shyra and headed out to see about using up some of the gift cards that Garry has had in his wallet for who know how long. We headed to Marks Work World and unfortunately they didn't have the pants he likes in his size...so that card will be saved for another day. Then we headed off to Sport Chek, where he used his gift card to buy some new insoles for his shoes. Zellers came next, now he has some new white t-shirts. We stopped at the shoe store also and put into practice a Feng Shui suggestion of buying a new pair of shoes for the new year. (he needed new shoes anyway*grin*). Then we decided to head into the city for a lunch treat at Moxies. What a great day. We had lots of laughs and fun together.
I'm anxious to hear from Kaeli today to find out if Matt got his puppy yesterday or not. I want to hear all about it, which I'm sure I will at some point today.
Quin arrived home late Friday night, and headed over for a wee visit yesterday before having to meet up with his fishing lodge partner in Vermilon yesterday. He is planning on stopping in at some point today for a longer visit. Yay.
A fun day yesterday with Garry and Shyra.
Seeing Quin and having a quick chat with him.
Guidance in my life.
The knowledge that when I remain open to blessings that I'm often surprised at what comes into my day and am always blessed.
A lazy day ahead with no major plans...serenity and relaxation...can't get better than that.
Have an wonderful day, thanks for stopping by for a visit...wishing you a day filled with blessings.

Did I sleep great last night or what! I had moved my monthly massage treatment from this morning to yesterday after work as my therapist wasn't going to be available today. What a great thing to do...I was so totally relaxed after my treatment that going to sleep last night was wonderful. I just might have to think on changing my appointment permanently to a Friday after work *grin*
Well its Silly Saturday on the Positive Bloggers team and I'm looking forward to some silliness today. I have nothing planned, although Shyra phoned me yesterday to see if I had plans for today. She would like to get together, YAY. Not sure what we will end up doing, but spending time with her is always a treat.
Shy is contemplating a week's trip to Cuba at the end of May with a friend. Quin is on his way home sometime this weekend from his job in northern BC, Kaeli and her boyfriend are going to pick out a "foster" puppy today. Matt has always wanted a dog and thinks the time is right to finally get one. This should be interesting if Matt decides to bring the puppy for a visit to Kaeli and Shy's place...they have a rabbit and a cat! Life is never dull around here.
It's the weekend and I have nothing planned.
A great sleep last night, first time all week that I've slept the whole night through without waking up.
Our temperatures are dropping big time once again, but this time the sidewalks/driveways and streets have all melted off and they are no longer wet and turning to ice.
I read an interesting article in an email that I received yesterday. I'm sharing the article here, as there are others that might find it fun and interesting too! (Lexie...mine is 1)
What is your personal year number?
by Bev Kennedy, BScN, HHP
Many people like to start a new year by making resolutions or setting goals; I do too. In addition, because I’m a Numerologist, I like to think about my Personal Year number/energy.
I believe that my Personal Year energy helps to “set the tone” for the upcoming year. I have learned that if I keep that energy in mind, throughout the year, I am better able to “go with the flow” of events. Then, my life unfolds with fewer struggles and more grace.
So, what is Personal Year energy? Simply put, it is a specific vibration (type) of energy that affects you during a particular calendar year. Personal Year energy interacts with the energy held in your birth name and birth date. Together, they govern your experiences during the year.
There are nine different Personal Year energies and together, they make up a Personal Year Cycle. These nine-year cycles repeat and repeat throughout your lifetime.
Each Personal Year has a specific energetic vibration; thus, has its own set of characteristics or “personality”. For example, five-energy typically encourages: spontaneity, risk-taking, freedom, adventure and change.
So, if you are in a Personal Year five and wanting to travel, this would be an ideal year for exploring distant lands and cultures. Or, if you are thinking about changing jobs, but don’t yet have the courage to do so, the Personal Year five-energy would support your efforts to do just that. Similarly, Personal Year nine-energy would support a job resignation because, among other things, it governs endings.
It is easy to calculate your Personal Year number/energy. Simply, add your birth day and birth month numbers to the four digits of the current year. Then, reduce the two-digit result to a single number by adding those digits together.
For example, if you were born on the 14th of August add: 1+4 (day) + 8 (month) + 2+0+1+1 (current year) = 17. Now, add 17 together: 1+7 = 8. Your Personal Year energy for 2011 is an eight.
Below is a brief synopsis of each of the nine Personal Year energies:
One: A year for “seed planting” and new beginnings. It is an ideal year for setting goals and making plans. Your personal energy will be strong this year.
Two: A year of slow growth, and potential set-backs; practice patience. Focus on communication, relationship building, cooperation and compromise. You may feel unusually sensitive this year.
Three: A year for creative expression, fun and good luck. Expressing your deep thoughts and feelings will allow you to more easily access your creativity. Try new things, use humour; allow your inspiration to flow.
Four: A year for laying firm foundations. Be practical, get organized and work hard toward achieving your goals. Also, practice self-discipline. Four is a “no nonsense” type of energy.
Five: A year of change and opportunity. Take risks, stretch your limits, try new things, get out of any ruts; it is an ideal time for exploration, adventure and travel.
Six: A year to focus on your family and responsibilities. Strive to balance your work and home life, and your needs with the needs of others.
Seven: A year for introspection and spiritual growth. Spend time in solitude, meditate - listen to your inner self, read; re-examine your life’s direction. This is a sabbatical year.
Eight: A year of a harvest and rewards. Your personal influence and finances will improve. Focus on the outer world, and on your business/career.
Nine: A year of endings and transformation. Complete any unfinished business, grieve any losses, and express gratitude for all that you have. You are preparing for the next Personal Year cycle.
Have fun with this information and observe how your Personal Year energy influences your experiences during 2011. I would love to hear about your observations or experiences with your Personal Year energy. Please see my contact information below.

Wow, did I have some very strange dreams last night. One of those nights that the dreams stay with you and really make you wonder what the message is. Dreams about relatives and none of them with their correct bodies! Very strange...I knew who they were in my dreams, conversed with them, but when I woke up it was "what the heck...they don't look like that!" I'm thinking it's time to once again start keeping a dream journal...even if it's only for my own clarification.
I had to stop momentarily and write out all that I remember so far as it was really bizarre. It's one of those dreams that will bug me all day as I attempt to figure it out.
I have my massage right after work today. This will be different as I've never gone on a Friday before and right after work. What a great way to start a weekend...being relaxed! *grin*
Knowledge that I'm am listening to my inner guidance...just not at the moment getting the message!
Massage today after work, ahhhhhh.
It's Friday! Woo Hoo
Some great books to read this weekend.
Have an awesome Friday, appreciate all the blessings that come your way, acknowledge the challenges, but don't dwell on them negatively.

I'm plugging along and slowly getting to where I am going. I'm back to consistently eating a healthy breakfast before heading out the door for work. I still find it hard to eat at the time of morning that most people are still sleeping, but it's getting there again. I do have the odd morning that I take my breakfast with me, as I'm just not hungry. I'm still struggling with "do I eat because I'm supposed to eat a healthy breakfast" or "do I eat because I'm hungry".
My massage therapist phoned me last evening to see if I would mind coming after work tomorrow for my treatment instead of Saturday morning. She needs to juggle her schedule and as it works for me too, I'm okay with changing it. So YAY, I get to go a day earlier for my treatment. Fabulous Friday just got more Fabulous *grin*
I'm continuing to move forward.
I get to go a day earlier for my massage treatment.
I'm slowly making head way with all the orders that piled up in my in basket while I was away.
My family, friends and God in my life, not necessarily in any particular order as they are all important.
I haven't had to shovel snow for awhile....maybe I just jinxed it *grin*
Attempting to put into practice in my life some concepts that I've been reading about. I've noticed that my awareness has increased.
Have a wonderful day. When you feel like giving up, just keep going. You never know just how close you are to success.
