Walking...such a wonderful thing to be able to do.

Thursday, April 28, 2011

I have been really enjoying the opportunity each day to be able to get outdoors and do some walking. Now that the temperatures are warmer and the sidewalks are all clear of ice and snow, it makes walking not only possible, but an enjoyable experience.
Having the time off work also lends itself to a great time of being able to walk. I'm hoping to be able to configure some walking time into my days during my lunch break once I return to work. When a person is up at 4:30 am for work, walking after work means that I am often battling with sheer tiredness. This is great to get up in the morning, have some breakfast and then head outdoors.

Shy and I spent time together yesterday wandering the mall. She was needing to find some summer clothes for work as well as for her holiday to Cuba in a couple of weeks. We had a great time and she was successful.

I go for my MRI today...yay...finally. Just confirmed my appointment this morning and all is set. My appointment is at 6pm this evening. Garry is going to drive me in to the city and wait with me. My Rock!

My Positives:
Another great day to do some walking in. It rained during the night,but there is sunshine now and everything smells so fresh. It will nice to commune with nature as I go for my walk.
Finally having my MRI today, praying that I get some answers.
Time spent with Shyra yesterday.
Being blessed with another new day.

Have a wonderful day everyone,
Hugs,
Wanda

April 27

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

I'm operating in slow motion this morning. Got out of bed due to a headache and am gingerly making my way through the morning.
I'm grateful to be on holidays where I don't have to do anything strenuous.

I am also grateful that I finally got a call from Dr. Makus's office to let me know that he has gotten me my appointment for my MRI. I go tomorrow to the Royal Alex hospital. I need to be there at 6pm to check in. Prayers please that I don't have a reaction to the dye that needs to be introduced so that the blood vessels show up properly when they do the cranial angiogram.

My positives:
Being on holidays.
Having my MRI appointment.
Trusting God that the source of these headaches will be revealed.
Time with Shyra today.
Opportunity to mediate and find my center.
Having a loving God, family and group of friends in my life.

Have an awesome day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    I'm glad to read that the appointment has been set. Time to get some action and root out those headaches! Hope that you feel well enough to enjoy your mall visit with Shy. I'll pray that you do.
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Love,
Nancy

Plugging along

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

It was so nice yesterday to be able to lace on my walking shoes and head out the door for a nice long walk. So nice to go when I felt like going and to not be concerned about the time.
I'll head out the door once again today for some more walking. The temperatures are on the cooler side today, as it appears we had some rain through out the night. Skies are clear this morning though and the sun is shining on the east side of the house, but looking out the west side...dark rain clouds and not so nice. We could be in for a mixed bag today.

Kaeli phoned me from her work yesterday barely able to talk. Seems she is down with a case of laryngitis. Poor girl. Shyra has tomorrow off work and phoned and wanted me to go to West Edmonton mall with her. Sure...it's exercise!

My positives:
Walking.
My children.
Sunshine.
The rain that so nicely washing things clean after such a long winter.
Haircut today. No more shaggy dog look.
Time to read.
Time to meditate.
Just plain and simply "time".
Life.


Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Sounds like a easy flow to life there. I hear no mention of any appointments. What's the deal? Now that Easter is behind us, I hope the good Dr. gets things moving for you. Today is Benjamin's 22 birthday. Time flies when you're having fun. I've got to make him a cake. I'll be making me a treat too. Heaven forbid I feel left out of the celebration. Lemony flan for me. Have a great Tuesday. I'll be keeping my eye out for you!
Love,
Nancy

Easter Monday

Monday, April 25, 2011

Garry has to go to work today, I get to go for a nice walk. The sun is shining, on the cool side outdoors, but perfect for doing some walking in.

Yesterday was a beautiful day out. I transplanted some of my cucumbers into their permanent home for the growing season. They are in portable containers, so it's easy to bring them indoors at night and take them outdoors when it's nice out during the day. YAY. I'm going to transplant some of my tomato plants today into containers and do the same thing with them.

Saturday night all the kids came over for dinner and a mean game of trival pursuit. Guys against the girls. The girls whipped butt! It was lots of fun.

My Positives:
I'm on holidays and I have the time and energy to put into doing some walking.
My seedlings are doing great.
Got some of my cucumbers planted into their permanent containers.
The sun is shining again today.
A good sleep last night.
Hair appointment tomorrow morning...Yay...no more shaggy dog look.
Motivated.

Have a wonderful Monday,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Yay for the girls. We have had some April showers today, now the sun is trying to peak out. Like all your positives. Enjoy your time away from work. Our gas hit $4.18 a gal today, our road time will be very limited.

Hugs,

Up bright and early!

Saturday, April 23, 2011

I'm up bright and early even though I don't need to be, go figure! Oh well, I have made a start on re-organizing all the bins that Christmas stuff is packed in. Some of the cardboard boxes that we had things stored in are no longer useable, so I'm creating space in the plastic bins and determining if I need to go out and purchase some more.
As I lay there last night, my mind was going like a speeding train. I figured I would sort through some other containers and find out what I no longer use or need and put them into a garage sale or donation bin. Now that I have the time off work to devote to really doing some organizing...that's my agenda.

Heading out to Costco as soon as it opens this morning. The kids are all coming over for BBQ this evening, and we've decided to roast veggies on the BBQ as well as make spareribs for the meat eaters. Garry bought himself a cool rib rack and a wing rack for his BBQ yesterday. He tried out the wing one last night and is thrilled with how it works, now he wants to try out the rib one. Men and their toys *grin*

My Positives

Transplanted some of my seedlings into separate "bigger" pots. I'll have to start putting them outdoors for a little while each day now to get them used to the weather.
Laundry is on the go.
Kids are coming over tonight.
Time to do so major re-organizing and sorting through things.
Time to do some research and planning for my cold storage room.
Learning that when I have time, things will get done...I'll have to be more creative about making the time, so that I don't end up over doing it.
Being alive.

Have a wonderful Saturday, find your joy in the day.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Sounds like you have a busy day planned. I have a busy day planned as well. Breakfast is now in the tank and it's time for me to get to work. Made one more spark check before I get to work. Glad I did and that I caught your blog. Have a wonderful day. Don't overdo!
Love you.
Nancy
