A great long weekend begins for me today!

Friday, February 17, 2012

I was able to take today off as my overtime hours day, Monday is a Provincial Holiday (Family Day) so I have managed to make it into a mini holiday with 4 days off! YAY.

The kids are all coming over tonight for supper. Quin is bringing the new puppy with him. Garry and Kaeli have seen her already and have fallen in love with her. I know that Shy and I will too. The cat on the other hand ....well *grin*

Today I am spending the day getting my house tidied up and hopefully getting in lots of steps. Garry is thinking of BBQ for supper tonight, so will have to make a run to the store also.

I have not made any major plans for this weekend as I really want to just relax.

My positives:
The joy that I experienced in being able to secretly do something nice for someone else.
A lovely 4 day weekend.
Time to spend with my family.
Getting to meet the newest member of the family todnight...a lovely Golden Retriever/Bernese cross puppy. Quin has called her Sage.
How incredibly blessed our family is.

Have a wonderful and joyful day,
Wanda

    What a wonderful coup for you to be able to score a double weekend! I hope you have a blast - nothing like a new puppy to put genuine smiles to everyone faces (poor ol' cat) and that just makes our smiles even wider.

I almost did it!

Thursday, February 16, 2012

I almost did it...fell short by only 31 steps to make a total of 10,000 steps yesterday. Sure I could have probably marched in place or something to get there, but I never realized until this morning how close I had come! Yay me!

Now the pressure is on. If I can do it once, then there is a good chance that I can do it on a regular basis, all I have to do is keep on moving. *grin*

I have been granted tomorrow off work so that I can begin using up some of my overtime hours. I get to sleep in tomorrow morning. Sleep in for me is getting out of bed around 7 am instead of 4:30am. I'm so looking forward to a nice long 4 day weekend. Monday is Family Day in Alberta, which means we are closed at my place of work.

My Positives:
a wonderful 4 day weekend to look forward to.
Knowing that it is within my reach, even with having a desk job to get in 10,0000 steps a day.
Nice chat with Quin and him coming over on Friday.
An occurrence yesterday that showed just how thoughtful and caring my youngest is. Bless her heart.
Friends, family and guidance in my life.

Have a wonderful day. Remember all choices are your own....own them!


Hugs,
Wanda

Quin is back in town and coming over for supper on Friday evening. He is bringing his new puppy with him. This should be fun. The cat is going to be upset for sure that another animal is invading her territory, but I'm hoping that she will just go up stairs and forget about the puppy. Actually the puppy is already bigger than she is! Quin got a Golden Retriever/Bernese cross dog. She is so cute. We are looking forward to making her acquaintance.

    Congrats on the 10,000 steps goal setting and coming that close - you are there! I am hoping once I'm in Paris I'll see some success with this number as well. Others do it! Walking is such great exercise. My Mom at 89 still walks around the block and if she's feeling quite sprite - she'll do it twice or three times! Keep on enjoying your nice long weekend. Cheers friend.

    Have fun with Quin and his new puppy. Golden Retrievers are such nice dogs, don't know anything about the other part Bernese, my DD had a Golden Retriever, her name was Daisy and she was such a sweet dog. Hope kitty's nose doesn't get to far out of joint for having a DOG in the house, lol. Wow, you did amazing with your steps. Enjoy that four day weekend.

Hugs,

Our library celebration was a success!

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

We had a great turn out for our 35th Anniversary celebration at work yesterday. The memory book that we worked on was a hit as were all the programs and events that took place.

We have a long weekend to look forward to this weekend. Monday is a Provincial sanctioned holiday...Family day! I'm going to see if I can use up some of my overtime hours by requesting this Friday off also. A four day weekend sounds just about right *grin*

My positives:

A successful celebration at work. All our hard work on the memory book was appreciated.
Nice weather, we are now mid way through February, leaving only a few more weeks of winter as opposed to months of winter.
A long weekend ahead.
A great chat with the my girls last evening.
Lots of steps on my virtual walk. Still going strong.
Waking up this morning to a new day filled with possibilities.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Oh, 4 day weekend! Would be nice but the Foundation doesn't celebrate this Monday, which is Presidents' Day here in the U.S. Never understand how federal holidays are optional. Hmmm...At least I'm at a local hospital for the day...even tho' THEY are closed for the holidays, they want us there in case anyone shows up. Hmmmm....Maybe today should have been "Wondering Wednesday." :/

Glad to read that the library celebration was such a success...lots of hard work went into it and it is nice to get a payoff at the end.

Me...well, I'm starting to get excited about Sedona - Tel & I reserved our car, paid for our Grand Canyon excursion, and checked out websites for restaurants since the resort restaurant is outrageously expensive.

Hugs and blessings.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Not only is it Valentine's Day today, it is also the 35th anniversary of our community having a library. Big celebrations happening at our library today. It is going to be a busy day. On the plus side of that, I hope to get in some extra steps as I won't be spending a lot of time sitting at my desk today!

I won't know until I get to work whether or not our Memory book has arrived from the printer's. It was touch and go whether it would or not. If it doesn't it will mean some adjusting to the program, but not the end of the world. It is so nice to have all the meetings and preparation done with it.

My positives:
My teeth are all nice and clean once again. I have to go back next week to see about a readjustment on my night mouth guard, but other than that, I'm good to go for another 6 months.
It's Valentine's day and I get to celebrate with my hubby!
Life is good, I woke up to a new day before me. Now that is a true blessing.
A nice chat with my brother on the phone last night.
An opportunity to get some extra steps in today.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

  


A busy week ahead

Monday, February 13, 2012

This week is filled with busy things at work. Meetings today to finalize everything for tomorrow's celebration of 35 years as a community library. The book we were working on got finished, we are just hoping that it actually arrives today!

I had to postpone my dental appointment from a couple of weeks ago and now it has been rescheduled for this afternoon. I was actually surprised that I was able to get in so quickly as it usually takes a few weeks to get an appointment.

We have vendors meetings this week also as well as next week. Next week will be a short week as Monday is a holiday for many provinces in Canada...it's Family Day. Our place of work gets the day off, but unfortunately Garry's place of work is still open...so much for family day *grin*

My positives:
It's time to start planning my garden for this year.
I'm managing to cover just over 30 miles a week in my virtual walk.
A nice relaxing day yesterday and still managed to get my steps in.
Blessed with Garry being busy at his work , that translate into him earning some money this month.
How, when we turn things over to the Lord and keep a positive attitude, all our needs are met.

Have a great and wonderful day.
Hugs,
Wanda
