June 8

Friday, June 08, 2012

I think I could learn to love Friday's even more than I do! Having Fridays off for the next 3 months is wonderful. It gives me one extra day that I don't have to be up at 4:30 am. It's amazing what just a couple of extra hours of sleep do for a body!

We heard from our son yesterday (finally, this Momma bear gets anxious if I don't hear from my cubs). He has been really busy and Sage is loving being up north with him. All is well in his world, and therefore, all is well in mine *grin*

Garry leaves with his brother today to head for Saskatchewan for the weekend. He will be home on Monday. Actually he will head straight for work on Monday and I won't see him until after work. He is leaving me the truck so that I have transportation while he's gone, so all is good there too!

My positives:
Sunshine this morning and then a weekend of rain predicted.
Time today to go into the city and pick up the 3 curtain rods that I need.
A total "me" weekend. Seeing as it is supposed to rain all weekend, should be a great weekend for working on my projects and reading.
Blessed with being alive.

Have a great and wonderful Friday.
Hugs,
Wanda

    You'll have your recipe project done before you know it. That is something I need to tackle, (someday) lol. Going to be watching the movie War Horse with DH and A.J. this evening. Have a good one.

Busy day ahead

Thursday, June 07, 2012

I have a busy day ahead at work today.
Our library is hosting the annual Chamber of Commerce breakfast this morning. I get to be one of the greeters at our doors welcoming all the Chamber of Commerce members that arrive. Then we have our staff potluck today also. I am taking a lovely watermelon and feta salad as my contribution. Plus somewhere in there, I have actual work to do *grin*

My positives:

It's my Friday today, a nice 3 day weekend lies before me.
Potluck lunch at work.
Looks like we might finally be getting some sunshine again today. The wind has died down and the sky is looking like it might be clearing off.
Garry is going to Saskatchewan this weekend to see his Mom, I get the whole weekend to myself *grin*.
Blessed with a new day of life and all my needs are met.

Have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Enjoy your alone time weekend. We are suppose to see 80 today and for the rest of the weekend and the humidity will be back, I could do without that, but thankfully we have the AC if we need it.

Transit of Venus event

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

Yesterday was a once in a life time solar event...transit of Venus. This will not occur again until the year 2125 or there about if I remember correctly. It began at 4:05 pm yesterday afternoon, and although I was all prepared to watch it, the rain clouds just would not clear up enough to allow that to happen...siggghhh!

My washer repairman showed up just after 1pm, right on time. Turned my washer on and promptly informed in that it was my water pump, not something involving the drum on my washer. He has to order the part and didn't know how long it would be. He did assure me that as soon as they got it in, they would arrange to come and install it. Washing necessities by hand is what my future holds. I will try and get over to the girls this weekend and do a load at there place. On the plus side...my machine is still covered by warranty, so if the water pump is going to go...now is a good time!

My positives:
Staff pot luck tomorrow and I'm taking a nice watermelon and feta salad as my contribution.
I have another appointment to see my doctor next Tuesday in regards to my knee. Hopefully she will be open to arranging for me to see a specialist.
Payday today and hump day! You just got to love those two days rolled into one *grin*
Rain again today, nice of the Lord to water my garden beds for me.
Blessed with another day of life and the opportunities that the day has to offer me.
Free will and the ability to make my own choices.

Have a wonderful day. Remember you are so worth being healthy.

Hugs,
Wanda

    You can probably find pictures of it on line, I think maybe at NASA, they kept telling people not to look at the sun directly, hopefully people listened. Glad your machine is still under warranty and can be fixed and it won't take too long for the part to arrive. Thank goodness for DD's being close and having laundry facilities. We have another sunny, beautiful day, Sunday it's suppose to get up to 89. Hope you have a relaxing evening.

Hugs,
Shirl

    yay for warranties, and family close enough to borrow their machines. :-)
Shame about the clouds obscurring the Venus view. If it was visible here, i didn't see it. Rain, rain and more rain at the time.
Good luck with your knee.
Hugs,

Taking my road map with me today!

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

I'm taking my road map with me today...the wind has been blowing so hard all night and still howling this morning that I'm not sure if I will be blown off course as I go to work *grin*.

Out come the warm clothes today, no capri's and sandals for me! Supposed to be rain today, but with the way the wind has been blowing all night, I don't think the clouds have a chance of even sticking around.

My washing machine repair man is supposed to come today sometime between 1 and 3pm. I will have to leave work early in order to be at home. I certainly don't want to miss him as I need to get my laundry done, as well as making sure that we have the repair work done while there is still warranty.

My positives:
All my potatoes are showing leaves now.
The Kale is up in the garden and all my onions that I transplanted are looking good. It looks like some of my hollyhocks are beginning to peek through the ground too.
I'm making progress on my recipes.
It's a good day to be alive!

Have a wonderful day...who's been on your mind lately?? Make today the day that you contact them.

Hugs,
Wanda

    We've been warming up nice during the day, but our nights are still on the cool side, I had my bedroom window partly opened last night and towards morning had to shut it as it was a little to cool. I haven't seen or heard any June bugs yet or seen any lighting bugs, but it is only the first of June. Don't let the wind blow away your road map, lol. Have a terrific Tuesday. Hope your washer gets fixed this afternoon.

Hugs,
Shirl

    Sounds like the weather is ever changing all over the place. Today is sunny and going to be warm, so I'll be able to wear my golf skirt this afternoon :)

Monday, Monday...

Monday, June 04, 2012

It's back to work after my first 3 day weekend for the summer months. It felt good to have the time to begin on one of the projects that I have been putting off starting due to lack of time.
I have made some progress on getting my recipes all organized.
I will need a couple of larger binders though as there are more recipes than I thought that I would like to keep on hand.
I'm also doing a binder on DIY products that I have been collecting. Such as making my laundry soap and other cleaners as well as a section for DIY gifts that involve a recipe. The fun part about getting these all organized is that I will have a great go to place for making gifts for birthdays or Christmas!

My washing machine decided to start making a lovely grinding noise. Thankfully it is still on extended warranty, so the repair person is coming out on Tuesday to look at it. Unfortunately it will mean I have to leave work a bit early as well as miss a meeting that I am supposed to attend. But I would rather not miss the repair man and I need to get my washer fixed so that I can do some laundry. Washing by hand is okay if it is just a couple of things, but washing everything would take some work.

My positives:
My washing machine in still under extended warranty.
I've made some progress on organizing all my recipes as well as getting all my DIY recipes organized in one place.
It looks like it might be a nice sunny day out there today, hard to tell at the moment as the sky is still on the dark side at this time in the morning, but the birds are waking and beginning to make some noise.
I've been blessed with a new day of life and another opportunity to be as healthy as I can be.
Blessed with family, friends and love.

Have a great and wonderful day. Make this a day that you appreciate yourself.

Hugs,
Wanda

    A good positive Monday. Hope it's not anything to hard to fix with your washing machine. Have a great evening. Thanks for Monday's challenge, I needed that, made it to the gym and had a good workout.

Hugs,
