Life is good!

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

I have had a lovely long weekend and some extra sleep, I'm ready to face the work week.

I spent my day off yesterday mostly at home putting about. I made a run to Homesense to pick up some items that will work for Christmas. I love that store for all it's ideas and inexpensive items.

Woke up this morning with a wee bit of a sore throat happening. I'm taking steps to try and eliminate those symptoms. Gargling with warm salt water and drinking lots of warm honey and lemon juice. Which reminds me that I need to replenish my honey.

I get to finally go and have my hair cut today. I can lean back in the chair with my tail bone, so it's full speed ahead with getting rid of this mop.

My Blessings:
1. I had a lovely long weekend, no schedules and no deadlines. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. My tail bone has mended enough that I can sit and lean on it without pain. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I have lots of fruit flavored kefir water to drink to assist in keeping me healthy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I have a lovely dinner visit coming up on Sunday with Pat and Friday as they will be in town for a concert. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I have made some progress in my Christmas projects. Thank you, thank you, thank you.6. I am blessed with the gift of a new day of life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I am blessed with natural ways of keeping healthy and am not dependent on medications. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I am blessed with a family that cares about one another and is a tight family unit. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I don't have any snow to have to shovel this morning. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Today is the a brand new day that offers me untold of opportunities and blessings. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful and exciting day,
Hugs,
Wanda

A nice lazy morning this morning.

Monday, November 12, 2012

So nice to have a sleep in until 7:30am and then just putter around deciding whether or not to get dressed or have a jammie day *grin*. (I choose to get dressed).

I am going to head out to the Christmas store for some ideas, then over to SuperStore for some more ideas and probably end up at Winners and Homesense. A day to myself, no rushing, no schedules. I love it!

My Positives:
1. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the opportunity to sleep in this morning.
2. Thank you, thank you, thank you that I have a day that is free from schedules and deadlines.
3. Thank you, thank you, thank you, that I do not have to shovel snow this morning.
4. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the great day that Garry and I had yesterday.
5. Thank you, thank you, thank you for a day that is set aside once a year to remember all those that serve our country and served our country.
6. Thank you, thank you, thank you for yesterday being warm enough that Garry was able to make a start on getting up some of the outdoor Christmas decorations without freezing.
7. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the gift of a new day of life, bring on the opportunities, the blessings and the challenges.
8. Thank you, thank you, thank you for unconditional love.
9. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the gift of friendship, fellowship and sharing.
10. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the sun that I see peeking out this morning. What a wonderful way to brighten ones day.


Have a great day because you choose to.
Hugs,
Wanda

We finally had a sunny day!

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Wow, what a delight to finally have a sunny day. Our last sunny day was October 22.

I went for my monthly massage first thing yesterday morning and Wendy worked out the strain that I had in my right shoulder. Yay...free movement once again and no more pain.

Kaeli popped over for an afternoon visit. We compared Christmas wish lists and got lots of ideas from each other on possible things for other members of the family. I think we are going to end up having a work bee so that we can get some of the things made.

My MRI was cancelled until Nov 21, so no evening outing. Now it will mean taking some time off work, but at least it isn't months of waiting again.

I think that I will head out to the grocery store later this afternoon and pick up some veggies and fruit. I'm out of good stuff! It's also time to begin some of my DIY products and I need supplies for those.

My Blessings:
1. A lovely long visit with Daughter #1 yesterday. We brainstormed some Christmas ideas which was fun. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the blessing of Kaeli in our lives.
2. Wonderful sunshine, how it lifts the mood. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. The gift of healing that is restoring and mending my body. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Wendy and her magic hands. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Two days without more snow. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Garry, who so willingly takes care of my vehicle. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. We are blessed with all the necessities of life and a few extras too. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I have tomorrow off work, so a nice long weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. God's hand that is upon my family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Opportunities to save and make money, although not much, it all helps. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

So sad...

Saturday, November 10, 2012

I got home from work yesterday to a phone message telling me that the MRI appointment that I have already waited 7 months for has been cancelled as apparently their machine is broken. So no MRI appointment for me today. They did rebook it though for Nov 21, so at least that isn't that much farther away. Unfortunately the time that I have to go means that I will need to take some time off work now, but at least it's getting done.

I do still get to go this morning for my monthly massage, so that is a plus. YAY.

PS....I joined a great site yesterday called Ebates.ca. It is free to join and offers you cash back for shopping at your regular stores as well as coupons. Check it out. The stores on the site ship to US and Canada. You will get a cheque back quarterly and you can track your account on the site.

My positives:
1. My new appointment for my MRI is at least this month. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. It's massage morning for me today. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. It's stopped snowing finally! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I get to go for groceries today instead of shoveling snow. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. My co-worker shared some awesome homemade spices with me yesterday. He grinds all his own spices and creates wonderfully aromatic combinations. I am excited to use them. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I have a long weekend ahead of me to get things done and relax in. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Quin stopped in for a brief visit last night on his way home from work. Sage is loving all this snow...definitely a snowbaby! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I've been blessed with a new day of life and am excited to see what the day holds in store for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. My vision board is coming together and I will soon have it up on the wall for me to see each day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I am blessed with an awesome and wonderful family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a great fun filled Saturday.
Hugs,
Wanda

Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, it's shoveling time again!

Friday, November 09, 2012

Okay, enough already Mother Nature. My snow banks are already high enough. On the plus side we have three vehicles parked side by side in the driveway at the moment, so there won't be lots of driveway to shovel, mainly the sidewalks....at least until after I get home from work and then if this snow doesn't stop there will be lots.

Now is the time that I need to check all the emergency supplies and make sure that everything we might need is available. I would rather be prepared than caught unaware.

My Positives:

1. I had a break from shoveling snow yesterday, time to recover from all that heavy wet stuff. This new snow seems to be more light and fluffy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. A phone call from Quin last night to let us know that he is managing ok on the highways as he travels back and forth to work and that he will be working all weekend once again. Thank you, thank you, thank you that he is being granted traveling mercies.
3. It's Friday and I have a long weekend ahead of me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. It's my monthly massage day tomorrow as well as finally getting my MRI done. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. The county has been great at clearing all the roads making it easier to get around. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the workers that are working around the clock.
6. I have a great salad to take for my lunch today, thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I brought an armful of books home from the library yesterday, so lots of reading material to choose from this weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I am blessed with mobility to get myself around. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am blessed with a warm and comfortable place to live. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10 and best of all....I am blessed with friends and family and a whole lot of love. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a fantastic Friday,
Hugs,
Wanda
