Minus 20 this morning with wind chill -30 Brrrrr

Saturday, November 19, 2011

It's a frosty one out there this morning. I'm just happy that it is a Saturday and I don't have to go to work.

Up early as I wasn't able to sleep in this morning...hate when that happens! I don't mind waking up early on a Sunday morning as it means I get to sleep earlier and am prepared for a Monday workday...but Saturday is my day to get to sleep in past 4:30 am! My body is so used to waking up at that time, that it does it regardless of the day.

Kaeli wants me to go with her shopping today. She wants a second opinion on some creative ideas she is working on. I have some shopping of my own to do in the way of picking up creation supplies too. Works great for both of us.

Garry has the day off today and plans on figuring out how he is going to do the stairs with the new maple. Probably best that I will be out *grin*

My positives:
It's the weekend.
Christmas decorations will probably get done this weekend. (About 2 weeks earlier than normally, but we have been moving things around and we might as well get the decorating done at the same time.
Temperatures are supposed to warm up somewhat next week. YAY.
My Christmas projects are coming along.
A positive attitude and feeling excited today....hmmmm wonder what is up!

Have a great and fun filled day.
Hugs,Wanda

    Sending warm hugs to counteract that lazy wind chill! (I'm from Cornwall originally, and down there a lazy wind is said to be one that can't be bothered to go round you, so it goes right through you) :-)
Hugs,

    Enjoy your time with Kaeli, hope you both find some great buys. Yes, whenever my DH was working on a project sometimes it was better if I wasn't around, just leave them to their own devices. I sure don't like your temps, ours are mild compared to yours, brrrrrrr! Enjoy your weekend.

Vehicle troubles this morning.

Friday, November 18, 2011

Garry informed me that I will need to call a taxi to take me to work this morning. The emergency brake froze on the truck last night. There must have been moisture in there and now the truck is now going to be moving until we get it thawed. Poor Garry, he has a rough start to his morning this morning also.

My positives:
I have money in my purse to pay for a taxi this morning.
I got all my snow shoveling in last night...and it didn't snow overnight!
It's Friday....yay, a weekend ahead.
Going with the flow.

Have a great and wonderful Friday.
Hugs,
Wanda

    Sorry to hear about your vehicle trouble, hope it's not an expensive repair. I don't get notifications of team members blogs, I've tried checking the subscribe box and then I get notifications for a little while but it doesn't keep doing it, so I just look at the blogs on our team page and usually do it from there along with the huddles. We were in the 20's this morning, no snow flurries like yesterday, but none of it stuck, I guess the ground is still to warm, that won't last. You'll have a good supply of snowballs stock piled by the time we get a good snow, lol. Have a good Friday and a great weekend.

Hugs,
Shirl

Reprieve!

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Yay, we had a reprieve from the heavy snow fall warnings that were predicted to start last night. Although we have wind that is really blowing...we didn't get any of the snow overnight. Perhaps the wind has blown those clouds elsewhere?
I was sure I was going to have to be shoveling snow this morning before heading for work...I'm not celebrating yet though....it may just be on delay! *grin*

I have a long day ahead of me...a mandatory meeting that I have to attend, which will add to my overtime hours once again. Another meeting tomorrow morning also. There will be lots of extra meetings over the next few weeks as we plan and execute those plans for our 35th Anniversary celebration of having a library in our community. That may not be long in comparison to many other places, but considering our community is less than 50 years old...it's worth celebrating.

My positives:
I don't have to shovel snow this morning.
A great hour long chat with Garry's aunt in BC yesterday. It was so nice to catch up on family news from BC.
I'm doing well on my exercising routine...it's actually becoming a routine once again!
Garry, who still gets up to take me to work in the mornings and leaves his work to pick me up after work. (saving us the expense of having a second vehicle.)
How blessed we are as a family.

Have a wonderful Thursday,
hugs,
Wanda

  


Thank You

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes. I felt so special yesterday with all of the wishes. I had a great birthday. Not only was I able to have the day off work, I got to spend my day doing what ever I wished to do at the moment. I spent time chatting on the phone with friends and on the internet with friends. I now feel like I have actually touched base with people that I've needed time to touch base with.
I had time to review the past year, to appreciate the highlights and to see whether I have learned any lessons or do I still need to work on them. I had time to play and enjoy my family. So blessed.

Today, I will spend some time after work, setting some goals for myself for this next year.

My positives:
Being blessed with so many wonderful friends and family members.
A wonderful birthday dinner out with my family.
Phone calls and emails....what a wonderful way to keep in touch.
I didn't have to shovel snow on my birthday...I got it all done the night before!
Time...for so many thngs.

Have a wonderful day, appreciate all that you have.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Glad you had such a nice day and that Garry and girls could take you out for dinner, no dishes to do and you got the snow shoveling done ahead of time.

Well tonight is our Thanksgiving potluck, hope I can control my portions especially when it comes to the desserts. I am eating light today to hopefully help out in the calorie department and I went to the gym this morning, tis the season of potlucks and family dinners.

Hugs,

Celebrating the day.

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

I've been blessed with another day and another year of age under my belt. It's a day for celebration.

I have today off work also as I'm using up some of my overtime hours. It was nice to sleep in a bit this morning and know that I have a day all to myself to enjoy.

This evening the girls and Garry have said they are taking me out for dinner. YAY. Had a phone call last night from my son as he is working out of town right now. Also a phone call from one of my brothers. Love those surprise calls.

My positives:
Another year under my belt and a whole new year ( I trust) ahead of me.
A lovely bit of a sleep in this morning.
The day off work.
Time for me today.
Phone calls from family and well wishes from friends...so incredibly blessed with the people in my life.


Have an awesome day, I know I'm going to.

Hugs,
Wanda

May you have many, many more to celebrate. Enjoy your day and being taken out for dinner.

I am hoping that our SIL, gets a deer today, that'd be his birthday present. We are going out to their place this evening to help him celebrate, he won't come out of the woods till it starts getting dark.

Hugs,
Shirl
