A fabulous day yesterday!

Monday, April 04, 2011

What a wonderful day we had yesterday visiting with Julie and Jaidyn. We'll see Sharon later in the week, as they are going to be in town for the whole week. YAY!
Jaidyn is the most happy little girl. She is an absolute delight. I'm so thrilled that they are going to be in town for the whole week. Sharon's dad has moved to live with Sharon's sister here in the Park and that means Julie, Jaidyn and Sharon get to spend more time here instead of having to travel elsewhere.

The weekend as usual, went by too fast. A busy day ahead of me today at work, but hopefully that will mean that the day goes by fast.
We had some sunshine yesterday once again...yay, more snow melting. Although snow was forecast, it missed us completely, but did dump a major dump of snow on Calgary (about 3 hours south of us). The police were warning motorists to stay off the highways as they were deadly.

My Positives:
Being able to spend time with Julie and Jaidyn...and of course Kaeli.
Sunshine.
Melting snow...it's been melting slowly, which is a good thing as a fast melt would likely create flooding situations.
A new day to create with positives.
Knowing that all things are my choice....my actions, reactions and decisions. (Makes one feel powerful when you think about it.)
Having a relationship with God and knowing that regardless He has my back.

Have a wonderful day...make it the sort of day you can look back on and know that you did the best you could.

Hugs,
Wanda

We saw sunshine yesterday, not so much today

Saturday, April 02, 2011

Wow, we had almost a full day of sunshine yesterday, what a beautiful sight. Some serious snow melting was occuring and you can actually see a teeny, tiny piece of grass along the edge of the driveway. Hooray! Spring is arriving.

Not so much today, it's very overcast and temperatures are still below zero, so not sure what the day will bring, but yesterday gave me hope.

My brother and his wife were in town having their vehicle serviced yesterday so Garry and I met up with them for a dinner out. Poor Garry is really under the weather with this cold of his, but he gamely sat through a visit. We don't see them that often as they a couple of hours away and my brother is a long haul trucker.
Today at some point, Julie, Jaidyn and Sharon will arrive in town. We will get together today if there is time, otherwise tomorrow is our day.

My Positives:

We had a nice visit with my brother and his wife.
Seeing baby Jaidyn this weekend.
All the income tax stuff is now gathered in one spot and my program is downloaded on my computer. Oh joy...income tax time.
Garry's brother stopped in for a few minutes yesterday before heading back to Red Deer. He'll spend the night next Tuesday as he will be back in town for his work.
I have some time off to look forward to this month. I have so much overtime and holiday time that I need to use up some of it. I get to take from April 21 to May 9th for holidays. YAY! It barely makes a dent in the owed time, but it's a start.

Counting my blessings and feeling great about all that I have.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Good Morning Wanda! I will be getting off this computer in short order for Mr. Mattice to get on that Turbo Tax program. 'Tis the season! How nice that you have so much time coming. What a nice treat to look forward to! Sounds like you have a busy weekend ahead. Enjoy your baby time.

Happy April Fool's Day!

Friday, April 01, 2011

How exciting to say that it is now April. One month closer to winter being over.
I remember as kids, how we looked forward to the first day of April. A time for pulling pranks on the unsuspecting around us. All year long you would be planning what you were going to attempt to pull off. Ahhh the memories. Now, it doesn't seem to have the same meaning. It has become just another day sadly. Is is because we have grown older or is it because we've become so caught up in the rush that we have forgotten how to just have fun. The pranks we pulled as younger versions of ourselves, were never mean or malicious. They never were meant to hurt anyone, only to share laughter. Does anyone even celebrate April Fool's day anymore?

My Positives:

It's Friday! (enough said *grin*)
We had some sunshine for a bit yesterday. Even the cat was thrilled that her patch of sunlight on the floor was back.
A weekend of visiting ahead.
My little seedlings are doing well, I might have to already transplant some of them into bigger pots.
Waking up this morning...always a plus...means that the Good Lord still has things for me to accomplish on this Earth.
Friends and family.

Have a wonderful Fabulous Friday,
Hugs,
Wanda

  I remember pulling a joke when I was teaching French many years ago. I breezed in and handed out a worksheet with dialogue / conversation written completely in Spanish! Then I pretended to convince them it was legit and I thought they should be able to understand it! They thought it was funny, and it was harmless, after all. No salt in the sugar bowl kind of thing we did as kids!
Happy April Fools' Day to all! emoticon

    Happy April to you, Wanda. I remember an April Fool's joke that I fell for. The small local paper ran an article that a whale had been found in our lake. It was an elaborate article about underground rivers that flow from the St Lawrence Seaway to the Great Lakes and to the Finger Lakes. And I bought it. If it's in the newspaper, it's true, right? When I figured out it was an April Fool's joke, I appreciated the fact that they really had me. Hook, line and sinker.
I'm off to sub for HS English today. Should be a great day.
Hope you get fooled a bit for some fun.
Love,
Nancy

March came in like a lion and is going out like a lion

Thursday, March 31, 2011

We started off with miserable weather and it hasn't changed much since the beginning. Snow is predicted for this weekend....sigggghhhh! The plus side...the new snow won't last and with luck some of the old snow will start departing soon too. We did get some sunshine for about an hour yesterday afternoon...there is hope!

I'm off to find a baby gift after work. Baby Jaidyn will be here this weekend and I'd like to have something for her. We are all excited to finally make her acquaintence in person. Pictures just aren't enough *grin*

My positives:
Jaidyn, Julie and Sharon will be here this weekend. It's been far too long since we have seen each other.
One month closer to winter being over.
A very enjoyable staff potluck lunch yesterday. Lots of nice salads to choose from.
Almost time to start my watermelon seeds growing. I'm excited about trying to grow watermelons this year.
Life, Family, and Friends...I am so blessed.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    When I read about the snow and cold that you have, it makes me grateful to be here in the warmth and sunshine of Texas. I would suffer greatly from SADS up there in Alberta! Chin up. You're doing a great job holding on for Spring. It sounds like your weekend will be a great one. Baby time is always a treat. I haven't been around one in quite some time. Perhaps I'll have to volunteer at the church nursery or something.
Have a great Thursday. I'll be grateful for my sunshine and warmth and enjoy it with you in mind.
Lots of Love,
Nancy

    I'll try and send some of our sun that we have today your way, it looks like you could use from the pictures you posted in your blog. We might make 47 today, woo hoo. My hair cut got postponed from today till Sunday GGD' is sick with upset tummy, so my GD and I decided it'd be better to wait till Sunday. Enjoy this last day of March and have fun visiting and meeting baby in person.

Hugs,

Working my way through the week.

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Yay, it's mid way through the work week, it's pay day, it's a good day.

Lots of fog out this morning, so I'm very hopeful that we might actually see the sun at some point today. These grey overcast days are getting a bit tiresome.

Garry has managed to snag himself a cold, so he's been sniffling and coughing all night. Which translates into...I didn't get a restful sleep. It always seems to settle into his chest whenever he gets a cold, poor guy.

My positives:

I got my income tax program downloaded onto my computer finally...now I just have to tackle the income taxes.
Julie, Jaidyn and Sharon will be in town this weekend for a visit. It will be so nice to see them.
Staff potluck luncheon today.
Chatted with a friend yesterday that I haven't chatted with for awhile. It was nice to catch up with her.
I've got this week's challenge mostly done. Managed to get my pictures uploaded to spark and into a couple of blogs. Yay! I'm getting better at the picture part.
I'll try to do a bit more towards the end of the week to see if "spring" makes an appearance outdoors.

Have a wonderful Wednesday...celebrate being alive.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Hope Gary's cold doesn't last too long. Boy, it's hard to believe that tomorrow is the last day of March. I am going to my GD's tomorrow and she is going to get this shaggy hair of mine, lol. I decided to go short, will be easier to take care of after surgery and besides when it gets warm I like it short. Only 7 more days after tomorrow for surgery, I am ready. Enjoy the time spent with your company this weekend.

Hugs,
Shirl

    Happy "hump day", Wanda Lou Who. You are getting good at that picture thing. I enjoyed them. The snow ones, not so much, but your plant babies are divine. Hope that your day is filled with little notes of Spring. Your signs seem a little tougher to detect, but I am enjoying the challenge you set up because it is making me take closer notice of the changes, as I am sure it has aided you in seeing the bright side in your surroundings.
Have a great Wednesday and thanks for reminding me to stop and smell the roses.
Love,
Nancy
