Another day at home in bed.

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

This head cold is a real dozzy. It is making an attempt to head into my chest, so lemon and honey is the drink of the day. My bed will not see me far from it.
I am hoping that another day of resting and tending to this cold will see me able to head back to work tomorrow. Time will tell.

Have a great day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Oh dear - looks like you do have to give in and dive under the covers - hope you are able to get some good rest and turn that 'thing' around on it's head ASAP as you do with everything else. Your body wins - it wants a rest - that's how I look at it. Hope you are feeling a whole lot better really soon. emoticon

    Work can get along without you one more day, it sounds like it really hit you hard. I'll take care of the quote of the day again tomorrow, and if Mauri doesn't get to the daily challenge Thur. I'll take care of it, I know she's a very busy lady and doesn't always have the time to do it. Rest and get to feeling better, don't push it.

Hugs,
Shirl

    You just worry about taking care of yourself and work will be there when you get back.

Head colds...yay!

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

I woke up this morning completely stuffed up, my ears are plugged and my head feels like it weighs a ton. Sent off an email to my co-workers telling them I was going back to bed, hopefully see them tomorrow.

I slept until 9:30 am and then had to get up to answer the phone. Thought I had better, drop in here too and let you know that I'm under the weather today.

Have a good day all,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Praying this doesn't last too long before you are back to feeling like your old self. I took care of Tuesday daily challenge and quote of the day for you. If you don't feel like it I can do them tomorrow too, if when I get on I don't see your post I'll just do it for you. Take care, my friend.

Hugs,

Yay, leg pain gone, sorta!

Monday, March 26, 2012

Whatever I did to my groin muscle on Saturday seems to have corrected itself. Just a slight twinge with certain movements, otherwise, I am doing great. YAY.

I did get my steps in yesterday. I took things easy though and only did a few at a time. Took me all day, but I did get those steps in. *grin*

I need to start back up with some upper body exercises though. My tops are not fitting me the way they used to, which means those muscles are not getting the work out that they need to stayed toned.

A new week filled with meetings and then a very short week the following week. I get Thurs, Friday and the weekend off due to Easter. It's hard to believe that Easter is just around the corner. Where is this year going???

My positives:
A good weekend, with forced rest.
My groin muscle has healed itself quickly. Thank you healing angels.
I just might be able to start walking outdoors on my lunch break. The ice and snow are clearing off the sidewalks nicely.
Blessed with so much.

Have a great and wonderful day.
Hugs,
Wanda

    Bodies are such funny creatures. If you work on one area, then the rest goes, LOL. Glad to hear you are not in pain anymore. My steps I don't think were very high yesterday, but hopefully I will make up for it this week with my 5K walk/jog program. Have a great week!

Ouch!

Sunday, March 25, 2012

What had the makings of being a really super day of getting in steps, ended up being a day that I didn't make my goal! I had the most bizzare thing occur to me. Garry and I did our Costco run and then decided to stop at HomeSense so that I could hopefully find and inexpensive glass bread pan. No glass pan, but I did get a pan that will work in the meantime. I also found some much needed new dishes that both of us really liked. They are microwave and dishwasher safe, something our old ones were not. As we were walking around the store, me pushing the cart, my left leg suddenly hurt to move it. It was like I had somehow pulled a groin muscle. It only hurt if I attempted to move my leg. Each step that I attempted to take got worse and worse. I tried sitting down for a few minutes to see if that would help, but no. We ended up cutting our shopping trip short and headed home. It took the rest of the day for what ever it was to work it's way out. There is only a slight twinge left over this morning, but I will try and take it easy on getting steps done today as I know that I will have stairs at work to climb tomorrow.
A very strange incident that I have no explanation for or have ever had happen before.

The young ones all gathered at our place last night. We had a great "family" night of visiting and laughing.

My positives:
I was blessed with finding some new dishes that are microwave and dishwasher safe as well as bright and cheerful. I love HomeSense for their great prices on things.
Family time last evening.
Although I didn't get my steps in yesterday and not sure about today, at least I know it was not as a result of "just" not doing them.
The snow is melting, the birds are chirping and the temperatures are slowly making their way back up to the plus side.
Being alive to enjoy and appreciate all that we have been blessed with.

Have a wonderful day,
hugs,
Wanda

    Sorry about your leg, maybe something was pinched, glad it worked it's way out. Congrats on the new dishes. Glad you had fun and family time this weekend. The baby shower went very well, GD received many nice gifts for baby Cecilia. Take easy steps till you are sure things are ok with your leg. Have a good week.

Hugs,
Shirl

    Our bodies can do the darndest things to us sometimes, with no obvious reason for it. I hope whatever it was doesn't recur.

    Oh No... Hope that leg/groin pain eases for you today. Sounds like a good day to lay low and read or catch a movie...

Winter

Saturday, March 24, 2012

Winter has hopefully made it's last hurrah! We have a good 6 inches of the stuff on the ground now and supposed to warming up to plus 10 over the weekend. I don't think I will worry about getting the shovel out as Mother Nature will probably take care of it for me.

Nothing major on my agenda today other than doing laundry. I also want to do some research and see if I can't find a vinegar pot anywhere. I do need to head out to Homesense at some point this weekend and see if they have any glass bread pans. I like them for baking bread in much better than the metal ones.

I've got some books t hat I need to work my way through before they are due back at the library also. All in all....a nice weekend. *grin*

My positives:
Finally got to the grocery store yesterday...yay fruit in the house once again.
A nice visit with Q and his puppy at my work yesterday. My coworkers were wanting to see Sage, so Q brought her by for a visit. She was such a good girl. She even rode in the elevator which was a whole new experience for her.
My personal copy of the book "Cultured Food Life" arrived, so will see about putting into action some of the suggestions in the book.
No big plans for the weekend, all just little things.
Being blessed with so much.

Have a great and wonderful day.
Hugs,
Wanda

    The glass baking pans are nice, I think the bread browns better in them, I have a couple that were my mom's and will not part with them, also a couple glass pie plates. I meet with Debbie a trainer at 10 this morning, she showed me more machines to work on some things I can do at home with dumbbells for my shoulders. Pearl, the other lady who lives here and also joined SNAPS wants to go exercise together, I am looking forward to that, we can encourage each other to keep at it. Margaret called and all this rain has gotten to her, so we aren't walking today, but that's ok I have plenty of other things I can do. That was nice Q brought Sage by your work so she could meet your co-workers. Enjoy your weekend.

Hugs,
Shirl
