Nov 22 Happy American Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends.

I realized this morning when I logged on that I had missed yesterday! Take me out of my routine and look what happens *grin*.

I went for my MRI yesterday morning bright and early. I had to be there for 7am, appt. at 7:30, but it meant leaving home even earlier. We had very icy roads to watch for and snowing, so even earlier than we would have had to go on a good day. On the plus side....because we got there in good time and the person that was supposed to have their appt at 7am hadn't arrived, I got in early. Woo Hoo.
Earlier back to work also meant that I didn't have as long a day as what I thought I was going to have. Yay. Pluses all around.

My Thankyou's:
1. Thank you for getting us safely to my appointment yesterday morning and back again. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you for Garry being willing to do the driving. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Thank you that my work day was not as long as it might have been. Thank you, thank you. thank you.
4. Thank you that it has stopped snowing and I don't have to shovel snow this morning. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you that my co-workers had a safe trip to and from Calgary yesterday as well as a successful shopping trip to the warehouse. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you that budgets at work are on target for being spent. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you for payday yesterday. I love coming home and paying any bills that need to be paid. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for the blessing of a new day of life in which I can grow and learn. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for my family and friends without whose care, support and love, I would truly miss. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the gift of smiling...it's free and it's in my control. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

It's snow shoveling time again!

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

I woke up to the snow falling once again. I'll be out the door shortly to begin shoveling before heading to work.
Poor Garry is having a rough time with this cold he has obtained. He seems to always end up with it in his chest. Let's just say that his sleep last night (and mine) was frequently interrupted.

I'm hoping that the today's snow doesn't make for bad roads tomorrow as my co-worker and some of the selectors head to Calgary for some in warehouse shopping at United Library Services. I was supposed to go, but unfortunately my MRI got changed to tomorrow.

My thank yous:
1. I am thankful that my sinus issue is well on the road to being gone. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I am thankful that I have the ability to shovel the snow that it coming down. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I am thankful for nice warm and energizing porridge to start my day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I am thankful that finally tomorrow I will have my MRI for my knee. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I am thankful for the gift of healing that is working in my body and in Garry's. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I am thankful that God's grace is given to me each and every day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I am thankful that I have a loving and caring family, that has always got each others backs. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I am thankful for the many blessings in my life, big and small. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am thankful the unlimited opportunities to make choices for a healthier me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I am thankful for the websites and the people behind them that work hard to provide quality information and guidance to enable others to strive for a healthier lifestyle. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful day.
Hugs,
Wanda

    Our 50 degree temps would help melt some of your snow, plus we are suppose to get light rain off and on today, our temps will start going downwards on Friday and Sat. we may see a mix of rain and snow. Hope Garry gets to feeling better. Just learned last night that son was at ER he has bronchitis, he had a lot of trouble with that last year too. There weren't a whole lot at church on Sunday due to illness. Praying your MRI will show what's going in with your knee and then the doc will know what can be done to help it get better.

Hugs,
Shirl

From a nice relaxing weekend to a busy work week ahead

Monday, November 19, 2012

I greatly enjoyed my nice relaxing weekend, my schedule and my time. Now I'm ready to face another busy week at work.

We had a bit of snow yesterday, but it didn't last for long and is all shoveled away. We were supposed to meet up with family for dinner, but poor Garry woke up yesterday with a bad chest cold, so we bailed on the family. On the plus side, we will get together with them at Christmas time.

My list of gratefuls:
1. I'm grateful that it wasn't a bit snow storm yesterday and was something that I could handle on my own. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Save-on Foods had a great sale on baking supplies yesterday and I was able to get there and pick up some things. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. My girls and I are getting together at the end of the month for a baking spree. Thank you, thank you, thank you for some fun time ahead.
4. Quin is going to go with Garry to Saskatchewan at the end of the month. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. My MRI is this Wednesday. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I am grateful that I am able to connect to the internet and research things as well as stay in touch with friends and family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I am grateful for the gift of healing that is mending and restoring my body and restoring Garry to excellent health. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I am grateful that I have a job to go to that I enjoy doing. Thank you, thank you, thank you,
9. I am grateful for this gift of another day of life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I am grateful that I live in a country that is being bombed or is bombing someone else. Thank you, thank you. Thank you.

Have a wonderful day. Count your blessings.
Hugs,
Wanda

Nov 18

Sunday, November 18, 2012

One more day to relax or just do what I want in. Love the weekends for all the opportunities they provide me.

Yesterday was a great day. Went to the bank first thing in the morning and got an issue with an automatic withdrawal resolved. Found out that I'm now at the age that the bank no longer charges me fees on my bank account....woo hoo! That's all set up now. Ran some other errands and then Garry and I headed out to Homesense to pick up a couple of inexpensive carpets for in front of the kitchen and front doors. We ended up picking up a couple of Christmas items also.

Now that Quin has a dog that loves to come and visit and it's winter, having a small carpet in front of the kitchen door we hope will help when Sage comes in with snow on her feet.

Garry made some head way in getting his outside Christmas decorating done. He has decided that he is going to get a couple of Christmas trees and decorate them with lights and place them on the front deck on either side of the big window. We will have the indoor Christmas tree in the center of the window. I will take a picture and post it when it's all done. Should look very bright and merry.

My blessings:
1. I am blessed to these past two days off work so that I can be on my own schedule and get things done at home. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I am blessed to have reached my age where I am now considered a "senior" and take advantage of some awesome savings. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I am blessed to have a hubby who loves to decorate for Christmas outside and is willing to work so hard at making it look great. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I am blessed to have the internet and all that it provides for Christmas ideas and recipes. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I am blessed to go out for dinner tonight with Garry's aunt and uncle who will be in town for a concert. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I am blessed to have kefir water and milk that help me to stay strong in my immunity system. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I am blessed to have wonderful adult children who we have an awesome relationship with. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I am blessed to have eyesight that enables me to see the beauty of life around me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am blessed to have a warm and reliable vehicle to get me where I need to go and back again. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I am blessed to have a husband who is on the same page as me in so many ways, and the ways that we differ, we find a compromise. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderfully blessed day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Yay, it's Friday!

Friday, November 16, 2012

I had a lovely birthday yesterday. Lots of good wishes from friends and family and a lovely dinner out with my hubby and kids.

So glad that today is Friday and the last work day of the week for me. I managed to pick up a bit of a sinus issue and it is really fighting for control. I'm downing lots of extra kefir water to try and combat it and I think we might be at a stalemate! Depending on how busy I am at work today, I just might try and get away early. I'm thinking that some rest might be in order, seeing as I didn't sleep that well last night.

On the plus side:

1. I had a lovely Happy Birthday greeting from my eldest brother, who rarely remembers to say anything. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. A nice phone call from my other brother. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Lots of greetings from friends, they mean so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. My girls picked up a gluten-free cheesecake for my birthday, which was very delicious. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. A lovely dinner out last night with hubby and kids. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. A visit from Afton. It was so nice of her to stop by and to catch up on all her news. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. It's Friday and I have a weekend before me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. The Lord has seen fit to grant me another day of life, now it's my job to make it the best day possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am staying on track and managing to stay away from all the goodies at work. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I am making progress on my Christmas list. Thank you, thank you. thank you.


Have a wonderful day,
hugs,
Wanda
