April 09

Saturday, April 09, 2011

I remembered last night as I got ready for bed that Saturday is my monthly "Massage". It's very unusual that I forget about this treat, but it completely slipped my mind. Bonus...today I get to go and have my massage!
When I get home again, then I will start the laundry and rearrange my list of things I planned to do for today.

I had a wonderful visit with Sharon and baby Jaidyn last night. Julie was out with her relatives, so the "grandmas' got to babysit and visit. It will be sad to see them depart on Sunday to head back home, but what a lovely time of visiting we have had.
Tonight, Garry and I are going over to the girls place for supper. Yay! Kaeli phoned yesterday and wanted to know if I would take her to Costco shopping today. It should be a fun day.

My Positives:
Wonderful visit with Julie, Jaidyn and Sharon.
Dinner at the girl's place this evening.
Warm and sunshine forecast for this weekend.
Massage day.
Spring is definitely in the air...while reading the local paper, I noticed dozens of "garage sales" listed already *grin*
Snow banks are retreating ....we can actually see ground in several places now!
Only 8 more working days before my holidays begin.
Looking forward to having the stretch of time to finish some on going projects in the house. Our new flooring for the living room and dining area should arrive during our time off work...we might even be able to get it all installed *grin*

Have a wonderful Silly Saturday...enjoy the sound of laughter and if laughter is a stretch for you today...try smiling at yourself in the mirror and see if it doesn't boost your spirits!

Ahhhh, it's Friday!

Friday, April 08, 2011

What a wonderful day Friday is, even the sound of the word Friday makes me happy.

Today is our friend Marla's surgery and yesterday was our friend Shirl's surgery. Prayers for quick healing for both of them are winging their way to them. What a blessing that we live in a part of the world where medical attention is provided.

We are forecasted for a lovely warm weekend...plus 8 to plus 10, woo hoo. The snow is being challenged and it's beginning to lose it's grip on the land. I'm more and more hopeful that I'll be planting into my garden at the end of May.

My Positives:

It's Friday!
We'll see Julie, Jaidyn and Sharon once again this weekend.
Quin is back in town from his work.
Hoping to get a walk in during my lunch break today.
Walking planned on my weekend, just being able to get outside once again is a blessing.
A very blessed life.

Hope your have a wonderful Friday. Fill your day with great choices.

Congrats on the weather (I think we're headed for a mild weekend as well). Oh ... and yes ... it's FRIDAY! emoticon

A better day today...

Thursday, April 07, 2011

A much better day today. I ended up going to work yesterday mornng but returnng home again a couple of hours later. Headed back to bed and some sleep. Woke up this morning feeling much better. Headache is under control now and with carefulness, I should be good for the day.

I did manage to also get the income taxes completed and netfiled late yesterday...yay, all done for another year. Made the decision to invest in the Quicken books software program. I was able to download it from the website and will spend this weekend, learning the ins and outs about it and hopefully it will make things even easier for next year income tax time.

Gas prices took a major jump here yesterday. Prices at the pump jumped 9 cents a litre. I find it amazing that something that is produced in our own country (our own province) is so expensive. But apparently it is priced according to "world" markets. I will be doing more planning and consolidating of my vehicle useage. Once it gets light outside in the mornings when I go to work, I might even plan some walking to work. It would be about an hour walking each way, so we will see how that goes.

My positives:

Income taxes are done for another year.
Headache is now in the controlled level.
It's Thursday, so almost the weekend.
Sunshine forecasted for the rest of the week....YAY!
Bought the Quicken Books software, now I can do everything on the computer with regards to finances.
Weather is warmer and sidewalks are cleared...I can start walking outdoors once again.
Friends, family and God, all who contribute to a wonderful life.

Have an awesome day, enjoy the opportunities that come your way to be the best you can be.

    Yeah ... a better day. I am also feeling a little better as my back continues to heal and need extra careful treatment(s) ... nothing like good health! I've been dosing up on all kinds of vitamins and homeopathics and have managed to not catch the flu while everyone around me seems to have it (I think I built up antibodies to it two years ago when I got it really bad). AGAIN - here's to Good Health!

    Hope those headaches dissipate! Makes life a lot tougher when you're in pain. I'm doctoring myself as well. I've have had a swollen gland in my neck for about 4 days now. Is it an ear, nose or throat issue? Abscessed tooth? I think that I've discovered that it is a tooth/gum issue and have started rinsing with peroxide. That seems to alleviate some of the discomfort. So I'm keeping an eye on my progress to see if I need some professional assistance. A wait and see approach. But enough about me! I'm sending positive, anti-headache vibes your way. Hope the day goes well for you and congrats on getting the taxes off your mind.

On rocky ground...

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

I'm on rocky ground this morning. I woke up this morning at just after 2am with a whopper of a headache. I had been dealing with a mild one all day yesterday and had hoped that by going to bed and sleeping I could avoid taking any medication. Nope! Took so medicine and now I'm dealing with the side effects of that. Headache has subsided to a tolerable level, but I still need to get through my work day. Still debating on calling in and taking the day off work.

I am sure hoping that the MRI that is scheduled for me for next week can determine what is causing these crazy headaches.

So despite starting off my blog on a not so positive note, I will end it with some positives. (Yep, there are always positives in life)

A great meal time and visit with Garry's brother last night.
It was warm enough out for Garry to use the BBQ, he and Brian had steak, and I had grilled veggies.
Warm weather in the forecast for all week....yay, more snow melting.
It's looking more promising that I will be able to transplant my little seedling right into the garden rather than into pots. (still aways off, but the end of May will be here soon)
I have holidays coming up starting April 21 and I don't have to go back to work until May 9th.
Life is filled with blessings especially when you take the time to look for them.

Have a great day,

    Wanda - I hope you get some relief from those headaches (I've been suffering with backaches - it's not fun)!

So glad the little whippersnapper seeds sprouted. Mine are getting rather gangly so I'll have to transplant them soon. They like to have their stems buried in soil ... the stems will then grow roots and create a strong foundation for the plant.

It's good to be back. emoticon

April 05

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Yesterday's daily challenge was to set one goal for the day and get it done. Well, I set my goal and I almost got it done. It's income tax time and after coming home from work and getting down to doing the taxes, I can say that I'm almost finished. I'm missing two pieces of information in order to complete Garry's. His is the one that takes me so much time and stresses me out the most. There are so many little things that I need to remember and compile. Hopefully today I can say they are finally finished for another year.

I'm going to invest in the Quicken software program and see if that helps me to keep things organized. I want to be able to do it soon, as we are already 4 months into the new year, which means I have lots of entries to make to catch up.

It was a beautiful day out yesterday, the morning started off overcast, but by mid afternoon the sun was shining and the snow was melting. YAY! I know it's spring now also, cause the geese are all starting to come back. I'll have to take some more pictures this week on the progress of the snow melting....yay soon walking on the sidewalks will be safe to do...no more ice.

My positives:
Income taxes are almost done.
Garry's brother will be here for overnight today.
Snow melting and some lawn beginnng to make it's appearance along the edges of the driveway.
My seedlings are doing great, I have to get some more planted in little starter pots. I have some that need to be started about 4 weeks before they can be planted outdoors. Usually the May long weekend is when planting can occur outdoors, but that is hard to say this year with all the snow that we have still.
God, who helps me each day...especially when I remember to ask Him.

Have a wonderful day,

    Thanks for reminding me that I have gardening things to do. I bought some herbs to transplant on Sunday and I forgot all about them. My herbs thank you.
Your taxes are almost out of your hair, and as soon as I get my scarves in the mail, they will be out of mine. I hope to accomplish that today. The sun is shining, the temperature is mild. . . it's a good day for picking in the garage. (yuck) BUT it is one of those jobs that "eats" at me and will ultimately give me an excuse to EAT, so I have set a goal of 20 minutes of picking today. Thanks for the challenge yesterday. It did help motivate my Monday.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for traveling along with me.
