And yet more rain...

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

We have heavy rain fall warnings out for the next couple of days. At least my plants are all getting a good drink! Just hope the weather is good for travel this weekend for Garry. He is heading to Saskatchewan to meet up with all his siblings and spend Father's Day with their Dad.

I had and up and down sleep last night. Felt like it was more of a dozing sleep than actually being asleep, but perhaps it was all the dreaming that I was doing. Now if I could only remember what was being conveyed to me through my dreams. I have to work on that more.

My monthly massage got changed at the last minute on Saturday to today after work. I'm looking so forward to it. I must gather up all my receipts and put my claim in to the health insurance too, now that I'm thinking about it. With the postal service being on strike though, I might just have to wait a bit.

My positives:
God is still watering my garden for me, but sunshine is in the forecast for this weekend.
Massage today after work.
Fresh fruit and veggies in the house again.
Healthy bowl of Muselix for breakfast this morning. Watermelon for a snack at work and my water bottle already for me.
Life.


Have a wonderful Wednesday...yay it's the middle of the work week already.

Hugs,
Wanda

  


It's raining, it's pouring...

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

The weather forecast is bang on today, hmmm, does that mean that it might actually be correct for the whole week! We are supposed to get rain for the most of the week and then warm and sunny on the weekend. Plus side...I don't have to worry about watering my garden and the despite all the snow we had this year, there are areas that it is very dry so the rain is appreciated.

Yesterday was a good day nutrition wise for me. I'm attempting this week to eliminate as much as possible any wheat and dairy to see if it will make a difference in some health issues. I'll need to stop at the grocery store again on the way home from work to pick up more fruit, as I'm grabbing the last of the watermelon to take to work with me. It makes a nice snack as does my apples.

My positives:

God is watering all my garden, saving me the task.
I've been able to arrange to have next Monday off work, so a short work week next week.
A great sleep last night, I was so tired that I headed to bed at 8pm and slept through until I had to get up this morning at 4:30am! YAY!
Having a higher source that guides my path.

Have a wonderful day all,
Hugs,
Wanda

    We have sun today, but tomorrow and maybe Thursday rain, then supposedly a nice weekend, let's hope we both get the nice weekend. Hope you find the right combinations of food that work for your body. Have a nice evening.

A new day...

Monday, June 13, 2011

A new day to be all that I have been created to be. A new week to get through to the best of my ability and with a positive attitude. Sounds almost daunting doesn't it? *grin*

A nice treat this morning for breakfast. Some left over fruit smoothie made with last years raspberries, a banana and some peach juice. I do believe that I now have my servings of fruit in for the day. It's nice to have smoothies in the morning. It doesn't happen very often as I get up so early and I don't like to make a lot of noise when Garry is still sleeping. The blender is not exactly quiet.

Taking out the crock pot also this morning and putting a roast in to cook. Garry likes to make roast beef sandwiches, and I have a roast that needs to be cooked up. He'll enjoy roast beef and potatoes for dinner tonight and I'll enjoy the veggie part of dinner.

Late afternoon yesterday the sun came out and we got to enjoy a beautiful remainder of the day sitting outdoors. It appears that it is going to be another beautiful day today. It's nice working the hours that I work as I get to enjoy some of this lovely weather when I get home from work.

My Positives:

Fruite smoothie this morning for breakfast.
Think I might have my new phone figured out enough to at least be able to answer it, might even have the text things figured out! *grin*
Blessed with another day of life.
The girls, who surprised their Dad with an early Father's Day yesterday. He is going to be with his Dad on Father's day.
Spotted some more of my little seeds peeking their way up through the ground in my garden yesterday. It's amazing how much difference rain water brings to a garden as opposed to the water hose. Garry is going to see about hooking up a rain barrel for me to catch the rain off the roof. My plants just seem to have all perked up considerably the past couple of days.
Friends and family.

Have a wonderful Motivation Monday. Choose one things to focus on be successful at today.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Wanda that's what was in my crock pot yesterday, roast, potatoes, carrots and onions, so today is leftovers, which I really like. Your smoothie sounded delish, I like them, they are very filling. After such a busy weekend I got a late start this morning, but the sun is shinning and we have blue skies, doesn't get much better than than and it's Monday. That is nice the girls got with dad before he takes off to be with his father, we were doing that to due to a couple of my DD's and SIL's are going to be out of the country on Father's Day. Sounds like your garden's are all developing nicely. Our DD lost a lot of her's due to too much rain, it washed some things away Have a great work week.

Hugs,
Shirl

I've finally succumbed...

Sunday, June 12, 2011

I've finally succumbed...I got my first cell phone yesterday. After listening to my family argue for many years that "Mom" needs a cell phone and me saying "no", yesterday I finally let them win the battle. I still don't think that I need one, but I do see their point of view. Now that the girls or Garry are no longer always with me when I'm out and about, they felt it necessary that I have a way of being reached. Personally, I still like the fact that they could just leave me a message to return their call on the home phone, but sometimes you just need to pick your battles.
Garry needed a new phone as he was no longer working properly and his contract had expired. We did get a very good deal on the negotiating a new contract which includes both phones. Now I just have to remember to turn the thing on!

The girls dropped in for BBQ last night and a training lesson for Mom and Dad on how to "text" message. Garry had picked up a "Seven grain " salad at Costco on his way home that was actually very good. Between the salad, baked pototoes and kabobs, it was a very nice meal.

My Positives:

I've entered the age of cell phones, another new step in picking my battles*grin*
Family time.
It's raining today, so a good day to read a book.
Being so blessed with so many things. God is good.

Have a wonderful Serenity Sunday,
Hugs,
Wanda

    I am bad about leaving my cell phone off unless I need to use it. My DD tired to get me on it on their way to meet us at Applebee's and I didn't turn it on till I got there and then I called her to see where they were, and she said mom you need to turn your phone on as she had tired to reach me before I did turn it on. I don't do the texting thing just talk, but they are nice to have just in case, so glad they talked you into one. This has been such a nice weekend, hate to see it end. Enjoy your evening.

Hugs,
Shirl

    LOL. Have to admit I was like you about mobile phones, but I wouldn't be without mine now. *grin* Mind you, I've only given the number to a select few family and friends because I don't want to be disturbed when I'm out and about unless it is neccessary. :-) For me it is more about safety. It means I can go on long walks safe in the knowledge that should anything happen, I have a way to contact someone, and should there be an emergency back home, I can be contacted. :-)
Have fun getting used to yours. :-)
Hugs,

Ahhh, the weekend.

Saturday, June 11, 2011

A lovely thunderstorm with lots of rain went through here last night. This morning things are bright and shiny. It looks like it is going to be a great day.

Woke up this morning and realized that today is my monthly massage day. I almost forgot. What a nice thing to wake up and remember. I missed last months due to being unwell.

We went out for dinner with the girls last night and then they came over to the house for more visiting. It appears that if Dad is BBQing for supper tonight, they are coming over again. YAY. Love that our kids enjoy spending time with Mom and Dad.

My positives:
It's Massage Saturday in my world, I get a lovely hour long massage.
Time with the girls.
All my little seeds are sprouting and doing well in my garden. I need to buy a couple more big pots though today to get the reminder of my potatoes planted.
Found out the name of a greenhouse that might have pear trees for sale. Going to check that out this weekend.
Got my paint colors chosen for the LR/DR and hope to make a start on that next week.
Have guidance in my life from a higher source.

Have a wonderful weekend,
hugs,Wanda

    I love your upbeat blogs Honey, even if I don't always comment. :-)
You couldn't ask the rain to pop across to us, could you? The area where I live is officially a drought zone, believe it or not!

    Sounds like you are having a nice weekend. The dance recital was so nice I especially enjoyed seeing the younger ones, they are so cute. I have some pictures to try and post on my blog tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hugs,
