Yay It's Friday!

Friday, March 09, 2012

I am so looking forward to it being the start of a weekend. This week has been jammed packed with busy stuff.

Our brain storming meeting yesterday was a good one. It lasted a couple of hours, but we came away from it with a good start on the re-classification of our job descriptions. We will each work on our own over the next week and meet again as a group next week and then as a department the following week. Hopefully we be much further ahead in our endeavors to re-write things.

Made it to the bank yesterday, only to find out that I was going to need to talk to a financial officer, who wouldn't be available until today. No problem. I will stop in on my way home from work and finish things off.

Got my shaggy dog look turned into a very short summer look! I love how it only takes me a few minutes in the morning now to look reasonably assembled! *grin*

Weekend plans....planting more seedlings. I want to finish getting all my onion seedlings started and then start on my watermelon and squash seeds. Catch up on household chores and then find a good spot in the sunlight and do some reading! Those are the plans...will they remain the same in actual fact...hard to say *grin*

My positives:
I have been maintaining a steady reaching of my steps goal each day this week.
I'm finally getting more water into me.
Chat with my son on the phone last night.
Detected a scam that a scam artist was attempting to pull on my hubby in regards to buying our truck. Garry really had "red flags" appear to him when this person said that they wanted to buy the truck, would send someone to pick it up as they were shipping it to Malaysia for their son (sight unseen). That they worked off shore and the only way they could be contacted was by text! They would not be able to go to a bank and transfer the money, as once again they worked off shore, but they could use paypal. Very interesting that they didn't have access to their banking via computer, but they did have access to paypal. A little bit of googling "someone wants to buy my truck using paypal" and voila...you get confirmation that it is a scam. They apparently target ads on Kiijji and Craigs list the most.
Blessed with inner guidance and the ability to search for things on the internet!

Have a wonderful day/weekend. Be excited about being alive.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Glad Garry's radar was working and he realized something wasn't right. It's to bad there are those kind of people out there just waiting for a chance to take somebody for a ride. After such a busy week unwind and enjoy your weekend.

Hugs,
Shirl

    Great catch there with the scam. Crooks will try anything to scam people won't they. Enjoy your weekend emoticon

A busy day ahead of me today. Heading for work in a bit. A 9am meeting with co-workers to discuss and brain storm how to write our job descriptions using the new Hayes Classification format that we are moving to. Lucky me, I get to be one of the first ones to have to have mine finished by April.

Need to head to my bank after work and make some inquiries on transferring money to the girls. I would prefer to do it the easiest and least expensive way, which means from my own computer, but I have some questions.

I have a hair appointment after that. Yay, getting rid of the shaggy dog look. So glad that my hair dresser works late on Thursdays. Once the hair cut is done, it will be almost time to head to bed to start things all over again the next day *grin*

My Positives:
No more snow and a plus 8 temperature predicted for today! Sloppy roads, but better than driving through snow and ice.
Hair cut today.
Got one tray of seedlings planted yesterday...sure sign that spring is around the corner *grin*
Shyra and I both had our holiday time approved for August. We are going to head up north to where Quin works for a family holiday. This will be the first time in many years that we have been able to get together as a family on a holiday. The last time was when Shy was seven! We are excited to be showing the kids where we grew up and to visit the Athabasca Sand Dunes once again. We will drive to Fort McMurray and then fly in from there. There are no roads into where we are going.
How blessed we are as a family.

Have a great day.
Hugs,
Wanda

Time change once again.

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

This Sunday has us "springing" ahead one hour. Yay, I lose an hour of daily light in the morning, but I gain it a night when I have to go to bed! After all these years, I still can't figure out how this benefits me. There, I've done my "whining" for the day, I'm good to go *grin*.

Slow but steady progress is being made with the girls and their mortgage. Lots of hoops they have to jump through as first time buyers, but if all goes well, they should have a mortgage in place by the end of this month. There have been many blessings along the way and all of us are truly grateful for them.

Looking forward to the nice weather that is supposed to be arriving. I'm hoping that the sidewalks will be clear enough of snow and ice to make it safe to go walking outdoors. I am determined to meet some goals in the health department this year.

My positives:
Blessed with a new day of life and the opportunity to make it a great day.
Family, friends and spiritual guidance that support and encourage me.
Blessed with a home, a vehicle to get me to and from places, a job that helps to supply our needs and love.

Have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,Wanda

    LOL, I totally agree with you on the time change. I don't understand why it benefits us either and I wish they would just leave it the same as it is lighter outside in the morning now which helps my mood. Have a great day Wanda.

Marching along...

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

Crazy weather...snows at night, melts during the daytime. The roads are a very sloppy mess. Windshield washer is a must!

This weekend is my monthly massage time. I need it, as I'm feeling some stiffness in my shoulders once again. Next weekend on the 17th is the Women's wellness conference. I'm looking forward to attending. This year my girls are attending with me. Should be a good day.

Not much for news today. I feel like I'm moving in slow motion or at least attempting to make head way while walking against the current. Strange feeling. I will have to be mindful and see what is ahead for me.

My positives:

Not much shoveling needs to occur this morning.
Had a good day of steps yesterday.
A solid night's sleep last night...maybe that's why I'm feeling foggy this morning *grin*
Happy to be alive and looking forward to the blesses this day has in store for me.

Have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    I wont say anything about the snow except to say soon it might be behind you ... hopefully ... but ... feeling like you're slowing down are you ... not such a bad thing maybe if there's a chance to smell the roses (and it sounds like there might be if you're gearing up for a conference w your daughters)!

I know what you mean though - I'm trying to figure out where to put my feet now that I'm off the treadmill ... woah I think I spot a metaphor ... I've begun walking without the treadmill here in Paris so it's not that I'm not doing it - it's just that I'm doing it differently and now need to recognize it! hmmm (and I really must try to figure out how to get the new UP band working again so I can record it again ... hows that for a comment on your blog - me sorting my life out! HA ... thanks for provoking such thoughts!

Enjoy the conference.

A new work week begins...

Monday, March 05, 2012

I got my steps in yesterday plus, Yay back on track.

This morning it appears that I will get some extra steps before work as there is shoveling of snow to do before getting out of the driveway! We had about 6cm of snow overnight. It is supposed to warm up to the plus side today, but I don't want the snow to pack down on the sidewalks with people walking and then possibly freezing overnight tonight.

I hauled all my seed planting trays out yesterday and over the next few days, I hope to get some of my seedlings started. The seed catalogs have been poured through and the garden books are starting to replace the other reading material. Yep, spring is on it's way! *grin*

My positives:
A nice relaxing day yesterday.
Got my steps in plus a few extras.
Getting organized for the planting season.
Get to shovel snow this morning and get some extra steps in and burn some calories.
Blessed with a new day of life.

Have a great and wonderful day. Take charge of you life...be the one in control.

Hugs,
Wanda

    We are at that time of year where it's back and forth with the weather, but we know when we get through March it'll all get better. WTG to get started on your seedlings, it's always fun to hear everyone talking and planing for their gardens.

Hugs,
Shirl
