August 11 and all is well

Saturday, August 11, 2012

We had a lovely normal temperature kind of day yesterday. Sunshine interspersed with clouds and a nice breeze. It was actually nice to sit out on the back deck after my chores were all done.
I got my floors all washed...no more doggie footprints. I did 3 loads of laundry and even baked some gluten-free biscuits. The biscuits turned out not too bad. They have a bit of a different taste than regular biscuits, but good none the less.

No rain overnight, but it looks like a possibility of some during the day today. The skies are very overcast.

I'm off for my monthly massage this morning and then Garry and I are heading into the city to see if I can find an affordable rain jacket. I need something that I can wear in the boat when we are out on the lake.

My positives:
I am thankful for having the time to get my house cleaned up so that it is fresh and welcoming.
I am thankful for Wendy who gives me a wonderful massage once a month that helps my body stay in tune.
I am thankful for the rain that we have been having as it is allowing me to have a bumper crop of potatoes as well as giving Mother Earth a renewal.
I am thankful for a nice comfortable bed that enables me to relax and sleep.
I am thankful for the internet that allows me to search and find things of interest.
I am thankful for being able to make purchases online saving me money.
I am thankful for being a Canadian and living in such a wonderful country that gives me the freedom to be who I am.
I am thankful for guidance from God, my spirit guides and my angels, without them I would have no hope.
I am thankful for a new day of life, that yesterday is past and I can begin fresh each day.
I am thankful that all my needs are met and I can trust in my Creator to provide the opportunities that I need to grow and learn.

Have a wonderful and exciting day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Very nice blog. We had rain the first part of the day, then partly cloudy and sunny, suppose to be a nice day tomorrow. We rented the movie Crazy, Stupid Love with Steve Cardell, it's rated PG-13, it was pretty funny. Have a good evening.

Hugs,
Shirl

A good night's sleep.

Friday, August 10, 2012

Wow, it's been a very long time since I've had such a good night's sleep. I did wake up a couple of times during the night, but immediately fell back to sleep instead of tossing and turning. I went to bed at 8:30 last evening as I was so tired and I didn't wake up until almost 8 this morning. Woo Hoo!

I am officially on holidays now. Maybe that is what helped with the sleep, not sure...I'm just incredibly grateful for it.

We did have more rain during the night as the thunder is what woke me up at one point. Things are pretty wet looking outside this morning. The sky is still overcast, but I see it's trying to clear in the east and the sun is poking it's way through.

Quin and Sage leave today to head back up north and we will follow next week.

My positives:
Eyes that allow me to read and see the world around me.
A hubby who works hard to support his family.
I have a great job that allows me flexibility in my work schedule and pays me very well.
I have a body that is really very healthy and moving toward even healthier.
I am learning to garden my own produce through trial and error...but I'm learning.
I have family and friends that offer me encouragement and support.
I am blessed with a new day of life to grow and learn in.
Internet access that allows me to make new friends and to stay in communications with them.
I am able to pay my bills.
All my needs are supplied.

So much to be grateful for.

Have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Holiday time fast approaching.

Thursday, August 09, 2012

Yay, today is my last work day before I start some holiday time. I was supposed to go in on Monday, but have been able to get it off also. As I have been having Fridays off for the past couple of months to use up my overtime hours....my holidays will start tomorrow!

I am really going to appreciate having a few days off prior to going away. I will have the time I need to get things organized and prepare my food to take with me.

Hot, hot and humid yesterday and a massive thunderstorm and lightning again last night. This one last almost 3 hours before finally continuing it's journey east. I will be so glad when this crazy weather pattern we are under is finished. At the same time though I keep reminding myself that this is better than snow.

My positives:
My last day of work today until the 21st. YAY.
So proud of our Canadian athletes competing in the Olympics. They have all done us proud.
Having a few days to spend with Quin and Sage. They head back up north tomorrow.
Learning to trust my own inner guidance.
Blessed with life, love, family and good friends.

Have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

It's Happy Hump day once again!

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

You just got to love Wednesday, even if it's not a payday Wednesday. Half the work week is done and after today you are heading full speed ahead to the weekend. *grin*

Not much for news on the home front. Just the usual hot and humid during the day and thunderstorms with lightning at night. I keep expecting to see mold growing on me each morning. Not really enjoying the feeling of constantly feeling "damp". Of well, on the plus side...I'm not shoveling snow!

My positives:
Almost holiday time! Only one more week.
Bust at work, which is great as the day zips by so much faster.
Drinking lots of water with all this heat.
Blessed with a new day of life.

Have a great and wonderful day, make wise choices.

Hugs,
Wanda

    With our hot, dry summer I do wonder what our winter is going to be like. They are talking rain in our forecast, that doesn't mean will see any. Had a good workout this morning at the gym, then DH said he wanted to go to Wal-Mart and get himself a small flat screen tv, so off we went, then he took us to lunch at Wendy's and we both had that wonderful apple, chicken, pecan salad, the stuffed peppers will get fixed tomorrow. Remind of your vacation dates I remember you said beginning on the 14th, but when will you be returning, then I'll write it down on my calendar.

Hugs,
Shirl

Time

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

I looked at the calendar this morning to check out the date....time is certainly slipping by at a fast pace. It's hard to believe that it is the 7 of August already. Next week we leave on holidays and by the time we get back we will be closing in on September!

I will be away from August 14 to the 21st. I should be able to post on the 14th, but then not again until I get back. We are heading up north and will not have internet or cell phone. If anyone wants to step in and give Shirl a hand on keeping things running, that would be greatly appreciated. Just touch base either with myself before I leave or with Shirl to see what help she might require. It's a lot for one person to do on their own.

It's back to work this morning after a lovely 4 day weekend. I stocked up on some fresh fruit yesterday and when I get home today, I have some work ahead of me getting all that fruit ready for either the juicer of just cut up into handy "to-go" glass containers. I also have to make some preparations on what food I will need to take with me to enable me to eat gluten-free while gone.

We didn't get much relief from the humidity or heat yesterday...first time in awhile that we haven't had a storm blow through at night. Looking forward to an AC building today!

My positives:

A great weekend.
Ready to head back to work today.
Blessed with a new day of living.

Have a great and wonderful day.
Hugs,
Wanda
