March 25, the last Friday in March!

Friday, March 25, 2011

How does time both go slowly and rapidly at the same time? It seems like some days just drag by, but when you look at the over all picture, the month has slipped by rather quickly. Amazing concept that we call "time".

A co-worker told Shy and I about a store in her town that is closing out of the location they are at and moving and having a fantastic sale. Shy and I are going to try and go after she is off work today, at the very least tomorrow. Shy needs some new jeans.

Family gathering at our place tomorrow evening. The kids are all in town and they decided it's time to get together again. YAY! I love that our kids like getting together with Mom and Dad. Q's girlfriend is working at the Home and Garden show this weekend in Edmonton and gave tickets to Garry and I for Sunday. Another YAY! So what started out like a weekend with no plans, has suddenly become a weekend with plans.

My Positives:

My children and their friends.
Garry.
A three day weekend ahead of me.
It's Fabulous Friday.
My little seedlings are all sprouting and I'm excited to see them all doing so well.
Julie, Sharon and baby Jaidyn are arriving next weekend for a quick visit. Julie is like another one of our children...she and Kaeli have been best friends since they were 8 years old. Sharon is Julie's mom. We are looking so forward to seeing the baby.
It is supposed to be a sunny weekend this weekend....PLLLEEEEASSSE! I need some sunshine!

Have a wonderful Fabulous Friday. Let the world know just how wonderful you are....no I'm not saying to brag, rather to recognize your gifts of who you are as a person.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Hi Wanda, yes I actually got connected this moring, will wonders never cease, lol. I believe this is the coldest March we've had in a long time, only in the teens this morning, but I know warmer weather is on it's way. I have not been able to get back on here since last Friday. I know I don't pay for my wireless internet but it would be nice if it gave good service. I am going to look into AT&T internet. It sounds like you have a full weekend, enjoy family and friends.

Hugs,
Shirl

    Wanda, have lots of fun with all your weekend activities! For me, after grocery shopping, I have no plans...HOORAY!!! I was supposed to work on Sunday but they've decided not to open the RV to the public so I get a 2 day weekend for the first time this month. HOORAY!!

Enjoy your shopping!!! Hugs.

Woo Hoo...25 points on the wheel this morning!

Thursday, March 24, 2011

My day is off to a roaring start...25 points on the wheel this morning. This doesn't happen to often, so I'm celebrating *grin*

I had a lovely couple of hour visit with Susan after work yesterday. It was nice to sit and chat and just be with a friend. We both agreed that we need to make it a regular occurance.

Miserable weather here and all around us yesterday. Major snow falls to snow and sleet, all making the roads a very hazardous place to be. For everyone else that is driving...take care!

My positives:

A short drive to work and at the time I go, very little traffic.
A great visit with a friend and co-worker.
It's almost the weekend.
The daylight in my days is getting longer. Yay.
A good sleep last night....looking forward to not having to be up at 4:30am on the weekend.
Life...it's good and filled with blessings....some days I just have to look harder for them, but they are there.

Have a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Wanda, nice of you to take the sn*w since our expected 6 in. was only 2 in. in my town...so must be because you got the rest. What a lovely gift you gave me!

Glad you had a nice visit with Susan. I, too, am looking forward to the weekend...no work...my boss told me I don't have to go with the RV since they won't be opening it. HOORAY! A found day off!!!

Hope you have a Thursday in which you find lots of thoughtful folks! Hugs!

Half way through a work week.

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Wednesday is such a great day. It's the half way point through the work week for me and when you finally reach Wednesday, you know that the rest of the week is heading towards the weekend. Crazy logic, but I love it *grin*

Our Stress Management workshop yesterday was great. Giselle Yanish, who was the speaker, was very good. Lots of humor and she kept everyone involved. Definitely not a "dry" session.

I'm meeting a co-worker after work today for a visit. Susan and I work in different departments and since moving to the new library, we don't see each other as much. It will be nice to get together and catch up once again.

We got some snow once again last night, but I'm not going to worry about shoveling this morning as it isn't much and it's supposed to be warm enough today that it should melt off. That's my hope anyway *grin*

My Positives:

Half way through the work week.
A three day weekend this weekend. Using up some more of my overtime hours. YAY.
Meeting up with Susan after work today.
Warmer weather predicted for today...means I shouldn't have to clear all the new snow off the sidewalks and driveway.
Garry got home early last evening, so we were able to spend some time together. Usually he gets home from work about the time I'm heading to bed.
Waking up this morning and knowing that I have a new day ahead of me to be all that I can be.

Have a wonderful day. Make choices that serve you.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Wanda, glad you got some unexpected time with Garry! Always a blessing that is to be with those we love.

Enjoy your evening out with your friend!! I'm looking forward to a relaxing evening at home with the girls!!

Hugs!

March 22

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

This morning we have a Stress management workshop to attend, and then I will be back at my desk for a couple of hours and then home. Should be a great day!

Lots of winds again yesterday/night, no snow though...I'm happy. We have so much that needs to melt, we don't need any more. The wind is cold though and it's very overcast, so don't expect to see much in the way of melting happening.

I've had someone contact me about a desk and filing cabinet that I have for sale. Hopefully it will go out the door this weekend, otherwise it will be in the garage waiting for me to have a garage sale this spring. I'm decluttering big time!*grin*

My positives:
It is officially Spring!
There are three paydays this month...Woo Hoo! Means that my flooring for the living room will be all paid for.
Garry's Dad is home from the hospital and in good spirits. Thank you for the prayers.
A coffee date with a co-worker after work tomorrow. It will be nice to have a visit with Susan. Since we've moved to the new building, we don't see each other as much.
I'm going with the flow of life.

Have a wonderful day.
Hugs,
Wanda

Hugs...

Happy First day of Spring!

Monday, March 21, 2011

YAY...the calendar says today is the first day of Spring....and I'm hopeful that Mother Nature takes the hint *grin*.

The wind has been blowing something fierce most of the night. Maybe that will dry up any melting that might occur today. The snow fall warnings that were issued, seemed to have missed us entirely...YAY. Keep on blowing wind. We have enough snow!

Yesterday I planted my flower seeds (Angel's trumpet). I'm looking forward to watching their progress. I had to soak the seeds first overnight and now they are all snug in their little pots. I've never grown them before, but the name called out to me, so I'm going with it.

Garry's dad is still in the hospital, but so far they are keeping him there and not transferring him. He is still being fed via the tube, but his spirits are good and Garry's mom sounded much better on the phone last night. Thank you for you prayers.

My Positives:

The crawl space is all organized and cleaned up....YAY Garry and his great invention. He built some flat beds with heavy duty wheels, attached ropes to them and now we can just pull the things out without having to crawl in on our hands and knees. So much easier.
No snow.
It's official the first day of Spring! There is now light at the end of the tunnel.
I have another three day weekend to look forward to....next Monday is an extra day off for me.
Life...we are so blessed.


Have a wonderful Monday,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Have a great week. I may get to do a bit of sparking on my breaks from the courtroom. We have access to free wi-fi courtesy of Harris County Courts. It will certainly not be the week I had planned, but it will be the week of interesting and new experiences. Happy Monday. Happy Spring.
Love,
Nancy

    I love the two times of the year that day and night are in balance. :-) I feel more balanced myself at this time, and the combo of the Equinox and the amazing full moon have combined to give me a good energy boost! :-)
Keepy Garry's Dad in my thoughts and prayers.
Hugs,
Lex xxx
