It's Silly Saturday, time for some chuckles and letting my inner child out to play. To those of you who participate in our Silly Saturday challenge...thank you. I look forward to checking it out each week and starting my day off with a smile and a laugh.
Our tempteratures did a major nosedive last night. It hit minus 40. My prayers were going out to the hockey players as they continued their "world's longest hockey game" challenge. These guys and one lady are incredible for what they are doing. As of yesterday they have raised just over $620 thousand dollars to go towards a special machine for the Cross Cancer Institute. When the average person gets involved, they can move mountains. There are over 1000 volunteers helping to keep these players fed, warm and encouraged round the clock out at Saikers Acres, where the game is taking place outdoors.
As I left work yesterday, I decided to check the shelves to see if I had any holds ready to be picked...woo hoo...there were 11 books waiting for me! Yay reading material for the weekend plus!
Today though, before I allow myself to sit down with a book, I need to warm the vehicle up and head to the grocery store, get laundry on the go, wash floors and put the crock pot on with some veggie stew.
Quin and his girlfriend are coming over for dinner tomorrow. YAY, I get to see them both. Think I'll ask the girls if they want to come too.
What looked like a weekend with no plans, is rapidly filling up. It pays to be flexible.
I get to see Quin and Afton this weekend.
Grocery shopping...I love wandering up and down the isles and choosing healthy foods for my family.
Some great books to read.
A nice sleep in this morning...I actually didn't get up until 7:45am...I did wake up at my usual time of 4:30am but being able to roll over and close my eyes again was wonderful.
No snow to shovel this morning.
Although temperatures are very cold, I don't have to be out it. Prayers for those that do please.
I have my health, a positive attitude and I'm choosing to live in Easy World where all things are easy.
Have an awesome fun filled day,
