It was Pizza night at our place .

Sunday, October 30, 2011

It was Pizza night at our place last night. We had such a great time. Kaeli,Quin and Afton, Shyra and Kyle, and Ty and Sarah came over for a night of fun and laughter. Kyle and Shy and Ty and Sarah came in costume as they headed out about 9pm to a friends place for a Halloween party. Kyle and Shy went as Mario and Luigi (Mario Bros) and Ty and Sarah as Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Afton had brought her costume that she had worn the night before to a family Halloween party. So creative, she went as a cupcake.

Today, we are going to attempt to finish a couple more things on the to do list and then this evening we have been invited to go to the movies with Quin and Afton (and the girls if they are up to it). It's been years since we have been to the movies. I think the name of the show is Johnny English, but it might be Mr. Bean. Tells you how much I know *grin* We are going to the early show as both Q and I have to be up very early for work Monday morning.

My positives:
I love how our place is a gathering place for the kids and their friends.
The house is becoming more organized each day as things on the to do list are accomplished.
No snow this morning, but the skies look like they might be carrying some of the white stuff in them!
A great evening last night with the kids and their friends.
A movie night tonight, the first time in many years!
A nice warm home to spend time in. A warm bed to sleep in.
Christmas oranges are available already...my favorite oranges! YAY.
I even noticed eggnog is on the store shelves. I try to steer clear of it until Christmas morning. That is my treat at Christmas time.
Found some great inexpensive gift ideas on Pinterest to make. Yay.
So blessed.

Have a wonderful Sunday, giving thanks for all things releases your spirit to enjoy each day.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Sounds like you had a lovely weekend with all the kids and their friends, how neat. We had pizza last night also, we like ours with everything on it, but Mr. A.J. is a very plain eater so I got one with just sausage and pepperoni on it, he liked that and we watched movies, the animated Sleepy Hallow, with Bing Crosby's voice and Witches. We always love having A.J. over. By Christmas oranges, do you mean Clementines, we love them, they are so sweet and juicy. Hope you have a good work week.

Hugs,
Shirl

Late start to my day today.

Saturday, October 29, 2011

I woke up at my usual weekday time and realized, yay I don't have to get up yet. Then I realized that I had been sleeping at a strange angle, which had created a bit of a headache. I decided to turn over and see if I could get back to sleep and sleep it off. A couple of hours later and I'm feeling much better. Still a residual bit of the headache, but I'm thinking now that I am up, it will disappear.

We had some rain during the night and actually surprised that there wasn't some snow on the ground this morning. The temps had dropped during the night judging by the number of times the furnace kicked in. No snow though...YAY.

We didn't go into the city after my work yesterday as Garry was making great head way with all the baseboards and didn't want to quit. Not sure if that is on the agenda for today. I have the usual household chores that need to get done, and I want to make a start on some of my projects. But "Flexibility" is my word for today, so I will just go with the flow.

My Positives:
Seeing the list of "to do's" gradually getting smaller. It's great to see some of the big projects finally getting completed entirely.

I'm on the Christmas Party committee at work and we had our first meeting yesterday. Looks like we have a great group this year and lots of enthusiasm. We decided on a theme very quickly...Ugliest Sweater ...it should be a lot of fun. Something that everyone can have a few laughs about. Each department will also be responsible for providing snacks according to which ever color their manager draws from a hat on Tuesday. They will also be responsible for setting up and cleaning up their own table of snacks. I think it's a great way of everyone sharing the work rather than just a couple of people having to do it all.

A short work week this coming week as Friday we are closed and having a Professional Development day for staff. Still have to be there as it's mandatory, but it's something different.

It's a great day to be alive and I'm grateful to have been provided with the opportunity to enjoy the day.

Have a great and fun day,

Hugs,
Wanda

    I love the Ugliest Sweater theme! LOL. I may have to nab that for my fiftieth birthday bash, if I have one. At the moment I'm hankering for a getaway to the Highlands of Scotland for my fiftieth, just me, the girls and my lovely S-I-L.

    I think you sent me your headache! With three dogs and a cat begging for my attention going back to sleep was a no do. I did get to sleep a bit later than usual so hopefully at midnight tonight I won't be as tired as some times. Sounds like you're going to have a wonderful Christmas party.

Yay, it's Fabulous Friday

Friday, October 28, 2011

This has been a long week, yet at the same time a short week. Doesn't make sense, but there it is.

Garry has today off work and is going to attempt to get the rest of the baseboards all cut and attached while I am at work. After my work, we are heading into the city to look at bathroom ideas! He's already planning the next project.

I am doing alright after my flu shot. My arm was a little sore yesterday, and I noticed this morning that there is a small red mark on my arm at the needle site. Other than that, no side effects.

Not much to report today. It's another new day and another opportunity to be the best I can be.

My positives:

Being provided "free of charge" with the flu shot.
It's Friday...best day of the week.
Grocery shopping to look forward to tomorrow. I actually like shopping for groceries.
I good night's sleep last night in a nice warm and comfy bed.
We are blessed with awesome children, a home, food on our table and transportation.
Our health is pretty darn good, no one is on medication and we function without assistance. I'd say that's great!

Have a wonderful Friday. Reflect on all the blessings in your life. You just might find that you are more blessed than you realize.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Wanda thanks for the info on editing my boards, you are so good about lending a helping hand. A.J.'s coming over tonight to spend the weekend, so we'll be watching Halloween movies this weekend. DH and I watched The Great Pumpkin last night, that always gives me some laughs. We had a lovely coffee hour this morning. Didn't get as much done this week as I had hoped, but hey some weeks just go that way, hope next week is much more productive. Enjoy your weekend.

Hugs,
Shirl

    I enjoy the challenge of grocery shopping - trying to make a square peg (my shopping list) fit into a round hole (my available cash). *grin*
Finding the special offers that are actually useful to us. Changing meal-plans to suit those offers. Chatting with the lovely ladies at the checkout.
Enjoy your day! :-)

October 27

Thursday, October 27, 2011

It is the last Thursday in October...only two more workdays left in the week. On Monday, the week seemed to stretch before me, now today, I'm thinking, I need more time! Oh well, such is life.

Had a nice visit with Kaeli last evening. Quin offered to help her change her oil filter on her car. She dropped over after she was done work and the two of them got the job done. Then Kaeli stopped in and we had a great visit. Made some plans for Christmas and now that is moving forward.

I was thrilled to be able to get a gift online that I had spotted and knew was exactly what I wanted to get Afton for Christmas. Unfortunately when I first followed up on idea, the item was a one-of-a-kind and not available as it had already been sold. I finally decided yesterday that I would go back on line and see if I could email the site to see what the possibility of them creating another item either exactly the same or with some alterations. When I logged on earlier in the day it was still unavailable, but when I logged on the next time....whoooppyyy...it was now available...I was ecstatic to say the least. Yay. Afton will get the perfect gift after all. Thank you Universe.

My positives:

No adverse effects from getting my flu shot yesterday. I am good to go this winter.
Getting the perfect gift for Afton.
A great visit with Kaeli.
Payday yesterday, only a couple bills left to pay.
A busy day at work today, the day will zip along quickly, I'm sure.
Being so blessed.

Have a great and wonderful day,

Hugs,
Wanda

    Glad you had such a productive and enjoyable day. Wasn't even thinking it was flu season. I used to not take it very seriously until I actually got the flu. Ohhh, it was awful! Anything to avoid that again!

    Don't ya just love it when things workout like that and something you thought you couldn't get, you end up being able to get. After my flu shot on Oct. 6, my arm was a little sore and I ended up with this small circle of black and blue where the shot went in and I still have it but it's getting lighter. I am amazed at how quickly October has flown by. Hope you work day flies by.

Hugs,
Shirl

Happy Hump Day!

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

It's mid way through the work week and payday to boot! Can't get much better than that.

My workshop yesterday afternoon was not exactly what I had been anticipating, but a great workshop none the less. Workshops are all done now, it's flu shot day today and then next Friday (Nov 04) is our Professional Development Day at work. We are closed to the public and will spend the day as a group working together towards a common goal of learning and growing. This should be a great day as it also marks our one year anniversary of being in our new library. Wow...the year has gone by in a flash!

I had to chuckle to myself last evening. Garry came home and wanted to know if I work this Friday as he has the day off and wants to go and check out the plumbing store we had been told about that specializes in bathroom setups. He is already planning the "next" project...the bathroom ensuite! Which means that he plans on tackling the master bedroom also. I thought I would at least have until January before he decided to get going on yet more renos. *grin*.

My positives:

Two workshops completed this week.
It's payday.
Midway through another work week, with a short work week next week due to a PD Day.
Forecast is not predicting any snow at least until after the end of the month. YAY!
I am blessed in so many ways and am grateful for my life.

Have a wonderful Wednesday. Take the opportunity of today and perform an random act of kindness. Cause a positive ripple effect to occur.

Hugs,
Wanda

    It's all ready been a year, doesn't seem possible, how time fly's when you are having fun, eh! You are blessed to have a hubby that doesn't mind getting into home improvements, Clenton always loved to have something to work on, don't have that when you live in an apartment. Today is DD's birthday, we are meeting her and another DD for lunch, Chinese Buffet, yum. I may have to go back for a second workout today, lol. Enjoy your hump day.

Shirl

    Renos are always fun Wanda. Every winter we do renos too and this year it will be finishing my kitchen cupboards, repainting the kitchen and changing the carpet on the stairs going downstairs. Enjoy your day!
