I've been wanting a pair of sketchers shape-ups for a very long time. In Canada they are not inexpensive, so that has been the big hold back for me getting a pair. Friends have bought them and have enthused about how comfortable they are, I've wanted to try them out, but at almost $200.00 a pair that wasn't something that was going to happen anytime soon. When we were in Vegas, I found myself doing a lot of walking and was in need of a good pair of walking shoes, so off to the outlet stores we went. Yay...a Sketchers store filled with lots of great shoes...my eyes almost popped out of my head at the low prices! I got myself a great pair of sketchers for $69.00, what a difference in price! They really do live up to all the advertising about them. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn and I'm enjoying the fact that while walking they do tend to align my spine more correctly, eliminating the fatigue I often feel in my lower spine after walking for long distances.
I can see why they promote the shoes as a great way to enhance "weight loss". It's not the shoes that promote weight loss, it's the fact that you are more comfortable walking, there fore you walk more!
Last weekend, while out and about with my hubby, we came across a shoe sale and decided to see what the sketchers were on sale for here in Canada...yep, great sale price $199.99! Some how I'm thinking on any future trips to the states...I'll be buying shoes.
A lovely evening at home with my Valentine.
Chats with both my girls yesterday.
Long weekend coming up...Monday is a civic holiday "Family Day" (I get the day off, Garry has to work...go figure!)
Spark friends, who are more on the ball than I am and left me lovely "goodies" yesterday...Thank you for thinking of me.
I'm learning and growing, working on being open and flexible. Letting the small stuff go and embracing the challenges as opportunities.
Friends, Family and God's guidance in my life.
Have a wonderful Tuesday, shine your light brightly in your corner of the world.

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.
