Fabulous Friday!

Friday, June 13, 2008

I love fabulous Fridays...they really make you stop and think about how blessed you are.
(Besides...it's Friday...what more can this working girl say!)

Friday the 13th today...now if I was superstitious, I just might be thinking that it's not the best day....but instead, I look at the blessings.
Woke up this morning with a major headache...as much as I hate taking medicine...I knew I had a very busy day ahead of me at work, so I took and Advil...Yea! the pill worked quickly and I wasn't sick from it or dragged out.
As I was walking into work and passing behind the only vehicle I had to pass to get in the door, the person in the vehicle started it and immediately backed up without looking...God's hand was on me and got me out of the way before the vehicle hit me. Sure scared me, but also a great reminder of why I surround myself with the white light of the Holy Spirit each and every morning before heading out my door.
I needed to print out my routing sheets first thing this morning, the printer had been relocated and during the relocation, it hadn't been tested....I couldn't print! The blessing...these just happened to be non-vital routing slips so they could wait until our Techie came in at 9 am.
I had a 10 am Safety meeting...I got busy and when I looked up it was 10:15 and the person I was to meet with was just walking into our department looking for me....she had gotten busy also and was worried she had held me up!
As it is now 3:30 pm, I'm done my work day, I've logged onto the computer....which let me without a problem...I've been recharged with reading all the great blogs and postings...I just know the rest of the day will be just fine too.
Who says my life is boring???LOL.

Wishing all the Fathers out there a wonderful and blessed Fathers Day.
And to all the great women behind those Dads, have a wonderful weekend. (wives, mothers, sisters, daughters etc.)
Count your blessings.

    Glad you were ok! I forgot that it was friday the 13th. I heard that the origin of Friday the 13th started in medival times when women would get together to celebate life and nature. on this day. The patriarchial church called them witches and made it to something negative. So I want to think of it as a day to celebrate connections to other women, not a day of bad luck!

    I'm glad you're okay and came through that car incident unscathed!! That sure was a close one. I love your "Fabulous Fridays" saying. It always brings a smile to my face. It looks like your day was a good one even with all the glitches at work. What more can you ask for?
Wish your hubby a Happy Father's Day for me and I know you have something extra nice planned for him.

  It's wonderful to know God has his spirit wrapped around us. He has had his hand on you with the weather and then the car almost running over you. There usually are positives even in the negatives we experience and you did an excellent job.

Yeah for Fridays!!!!!

Have a good evening.

    Wow Wanda... I'm glad you're alright. That is scary having a car almost back into you. You could've been run over. God sure is watching out for you. I've had a headache too today. I blamed it on the heat. Glad you got over yours. Wanted to thank you again for the lovely card. Such a kind, caring Lady you are.

Thirsty Thursday!

Thursday, June 12, 2008

Well it's thirsty Thursday already! Don't forget to drink that water.

Our weather is a real mixed bag right not, raining, sunshine,
"gusty" winds, hail, you name it! It turn out to be a lovely sunny afternoon. Very gusty though, but still managed to get a 40 minute walk in right after work. Felt good to get outside and walk after being indoors all day working.

Very busy at work, but I like it that way...the day just zips by. Not much for news on my end. A great day, nothing other than work going on, but still a great day.

My positives

Sun came out!
Got to go for a walk right after work.
Went for groceries after Shy was off work.
Kaeli made supper....a different supper as we were all craving egg salad. She made a great low calorie egg salad and I used Weight Watchers 100% whole wheat bread(no butter) and had a garden salad to go with it. Well with in my calorie range.
Being able to log on to the internet...we have been having problems lately.
My face is finally healing. I no longer look like I have been mauled by a tiger! It's itchy though, so have to remember not to scratch!

Hope you all have a great evening.

  The weather has been a concern all over. So glad you were safe the other night. I like the wind but my hair always looks a little disheveled. LOL Staying busy at work always makes time fly.

Keep drinking that water but you get a lot more down than I've been able to manage.

    Wanda - Thirsty Thursday is RIGHT! I can't get enough to drink today which is not a good thing in my situation. Plus I ate watermelon. I feel like Sponge Bob Square Pants! All water logged. Not gonna be good for my weigh in tomorrow.

MMMMM.... Egg salad... I haven't had that for years. Sounds good! Save some for me!

Busy at work is a good thing... And I can relate to not much going on ...That's why my blog is about my babies tonight... lol

Your egg salad sounds good... I think I need to have an egg... Maybe tomorrow... I was thinking that this morning but decided on blueberry pancakes... yum... Andy's favorite...

    I'm glad you didn't make that trip to Oz Wanda!! lol I know you're much happier at home! Our weather has been a bit crazy too. It was in the hundreds all last week and at the beginning of this one, but yesterday it started cooling down a bit. Today I believe was 89 or something like that, which was nice with no humidity.
I'm glad your face is getting better also. Maybe you better tape some oven mits to your hands so you won't scratch!! LOL.
Well, have a wonderful evening and enjoy your family. Hugs.

Still here!

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts.
We are still in the land of Alberta, the weather system that was threatening has disapated somewhat and looks like we are in for only rain today!
I'll touch base later today, I'm out the door for work now.

Have an awesome day, count your blessings.

  So glad you made it through the bad weather safely, Wanda. That must have been very scary. We only got a 10 minute burst of severe storm so I guess we were very lucky.
Stay safe!

Not on for long...

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

I'm not on for long tonight, just a quick note.
We have tornado watches happening here right now. Three funnel clouds were spotted just south of us. Not nice weather out there, so shutting down the computer early and keeping alert.

Positives today...I got to sleep in until 7 am this morning. Our computer system at work was being upgraded and seeing as all my work is computer work, I didn't have to go in at my usual time. Woo Hoo!
I did have to work later than usual, but that was good also, as I didn't have to drive back to pick up Shy from work, I just worked until she was done!
I've just plain and simple had a great day, lots of laughs and jokes.

I'm heading out now, I'll see you all tomorrow. (I'll either still be here or else in Oz! )

Am saying prayers for your safety as I type. If you wind up in Oz just remember to click your heels and say "there's no place like home" or follow the yellow brick road. LOL

Do stay alert and safe. Wrapping you in prayer.

    Wanda - I'm not on long either.... bad storms moving thru the Ohio Valley. Glad you could blog though. Hope this weather straightens up soon all over the place... snow for Cheryl... tornados... floods... you name it.

Glad you had a good day filled with laughter & jokes! See ya tomorrow!

    Wanda, keep a keen eye on that weather!! That doesn't sound good at all, but as usual, you are you're usual upbeat, positive self! I really admire you.
You have a good night and be safe. Get out of there if you need to. Things can be replaced and memories are in your heart and mind, so go if need be, you and your family CAN'T be replaced!!
Hope to hear from you tomorrow. Safe and sound. NOT IN OZ!!

Another weekend come and gone!

Sunday, June 08, 2008

Sunday already, where has the weekend gone?

We had a terrific thunder and lightening storm during the night, so not much sleep. There was also a tornado that touched down about 100km south of here yesterday, very unusual weather. More rain and more rain in the forecast...flood watches are now in effect. Mother nature can't seem to make her mind up!
A quiet day at home today. Yesterday we spent the day doing some yard work, or at least Garry did, I managed to sneak away every now and again! We did head to the greenhouses to buy some plants for the flower beds. They are still sitting in the garage waiting to be transplanted. Today we headed into Sears as they were having a big sale and Garry needed some new dress pants. The rest of the day has been spent relaxing and enjoying our own company. Did get in an hours walk while watching 2 TV programs, so felt like I accomplished some exercise today. Also got in 45 minutes of mall walking, a total of 537 calories burned just with walking today...not bad! I have found that taking my focus off of the minutes exercised and putting it back on the calories burned is making a difference in my weight elimination. I snuck a peek on the scales this morning, but official weigh in day is tomorrow morning, so will let you know the results tomorrow.
Work day again tomorrow and my face is still looking like I've had a run in with some kind of large pawed creature. The right side of my face will definitely instigate some conversations at work tomorrow. It's still very purple and ridged. I have to keep remembering not to rub it as it is becoming very itchy. As Garry says...if people ask (which I know they will), just telling them you have taken up lion training and the lion got the better of you! Gee thanks! You just have to love his sense of humor LOL.
Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. I'll catch up with you all tomorrow. Remember to find your blessings and give thanks.

Except for all the storms.. We had a lightning show here Sat night.. Lasted for a few hours.. I hope that your face clears up soon.. What a funny thought from Garry.. Wanda & the Lion King.. Take care. I have to call it quits soon.. Very tired.. Love & Hugs Always Polly

  Those weekends certainly do fly. You do a really good job of getting in your exercise. Wanda what kind of treatment did you have? I either missed it or am having senior moments. LOL Gary sounds like he has the same type of sense of humor as Bob. Have good work week.

    Lots of scary and strange weather going on out there... I hate living where there is hurricanes, but if I lived somewhere else it'd be something else... I think the tornado's are the scariest... We are number 1 for lightening strikes... yikes!

I hope your face heals up ... Is it sore? Lion training eh? LOL Too Funny Garry!

Sounds like you had a nice relaxing weekend...

Don't work to hard tomorrow...

    Sounds like a nice quiet family day. A perfect way to spend a Sunday. Your weather is very unpredictable isn't it? It's just plain hot here.
I'm sorry to hear about your face. What procedure did you have? I missed it I guess when I didn't get the notices for your blogs. I hope you're going to be okay.
well, continue having a low-key wonderful Sunday evening or night. Hugs.
