Monday was off to a roaring start in my world.

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Wow, did we have a busy day at work yesterday. We had a shipment of 22 boxes added on to the boxes we had delivered on Friday! Those boxes of materials need to be unpacked, organized according to invoice and then received. On the plus side....woo hoo material is arriving which means budgets are being spent!

Today will be more of the same as yesterday. As we are still working our way through the boxes, receiving and as we move towards our shipping deadline for this year with our vendors, we will likely have more deliveries today.

I need to stop at the store on my way home from work today to pick up a few items that I will need for the baking spree this weekend. I also need to organize the freezer once again to hold all the stuff we plan on baking. Although, the great outdoors is a huge freezer now, so it's not like I won't have a place to keep things frozen *grin*.

My positives:
1. All the material that is arriving at work, means that budgets are getting spent and our patrons will have lots of new materials to borrow. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. The wind rows (snow banks) that the graders left down the middle of our street have been removed. Now we don't have to drive down the wrong side of the street anymore to get to the cross roads. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Finally figured out what to get our youngest for her upcoming birthday. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Tomorrow is hopefully the day that I will get the results of my MRI. I will call today to see if they have arrived at my doctors office. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Technology that allows the medical field to see beyond what the physical eye can see. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Early morning quiet time. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Hot water that allows me to take a shower in comfort. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. The necessities of life are a given in my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Neighbors that are blessing to live next door to. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. A new day of life to work once again on becoming the best person that I can be today. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful day. Take the time to be grateful for all your blessings.
Hugs,
Wanda

Last week of November 2012

Monday, November 26, 2012

A very busy week ahead, in fact the next couple of weeks will be crazy busy at work. December 3rd is our final ship date from all our vendors. What this means is that anything that we have on order with them that is ready to be shipped will be shipped! Anything that can not be shipped by that date will be held until January 2nd shipping. This allows us to receive all materials that are to come out of this years budget by Dec. 31.

Basically we should have received all items from this years budget by mid month of December and will have then next few days to move all unshipped items over to the 2013 budget and unencumber 2012 money so that it can be spent locally shopping by our selectors. A crazy time of year for us.

It wouldn't be so bad it we were able to do global changes in our system, but unfortunately we have to go in manually to every title that is not shipped and change the budget for that item. Time consuming....yep!

My thank you's:
1. I have a job that keeps me busy and challenged. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I have an appointment to hopefully get the results of my MRI on Wednesday. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I am blessed with an awesome husband and children. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I am blessed with excellent health. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I am blessed with the ability to move my body without assistance. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I am blessed with a life that encourages me to learn and grow and become the best that I can be. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I am blessed with all the necessities of life and God even throws in some extras too! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I am blessed by the opportunity to open our home to welcome others. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am blessed to be a part of a major surprise for Christmas. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I am blessed with this new day of life to be all that God has created me to be. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful day, it's your choice!

Hugs,
Wanda

Going through my Christmas recipes....

Sunday, November 25, 2012

I'm going through my Christmas recipes and trying to decide which ones I want to make this year. I'm planning on giving much of it away as gifts. Next weekend my girls and I are going to begin our baking spree. Should be lots of fun.

We got a bit of snow yesterday, but not enough to have to get out there and start shoveling. With the way the sky looks this morning though, it might be a different story.

My thank you's:

1. Thank you that the snow plows came through our residential street yesterday and plowed the snow. Now if they only come back today and remove all the big windrow they left in the middle of the street, that would be awesome. Having to drive down the wrong side of the street to get to the intersection is not fun! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you for the get together with Shyra and Kyle yesterday. We had a great time at lunch with them. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Garry's good eyes and taste helped to spot the perfect Christmas ornament for our granddaughter yesterday. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you that I have warm clothes to wear during the winter months. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you for all the Christmas decorations we have collected over the years that help to make our home looking like the holidays. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you that we are all on the same page about opening our home during the holidays to others. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you that as a family we allow ourselves to be used as God sees fit. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for the daily blessings that come our way and for the ability to appreciate them. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for the gift of healing that is restoring and mending not only my body, but the body of Garry. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for those around us that are still with us because their life mission is not yet done. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful day, be grateful for all the blessings in your life.

Hugs,
Wanda

Yay, grey skies but no snow!

Saturday, November 24, 2012

It's the start of my weekend and I'm thrilled that isn't involving snow shoveling first thing this morning.

Poor Garry is still under the weather with his cold, it starts to sound better and then it's back full force again. If he doesn't start getting better soon, I will try to persuade him to go to the doctor.
(good luck with that Wanda!)

I made a great crock pot of turkey veggie soup for dinner last night. Lots left over for lunch today. I want to start some of my Christmas baking today also. Kaeli and I are making Christmas gifts of baking and such this year. She and Shy are coming over next weekend to help out. I'm just jumping the gun and getting started this weekend.

Kaeli's friend, JF, let her know that he is going to be in town for three days over Christmas. He and Kaeli used to work together at the airlines. JF has a scheduled (on the ground) layover right at Christmas here in Edmonton. We have invited him to come and spend Christmas with us. I can't imagine being stuck somewhere all by yourself over Christmas.

I ended up coming home from work early yesterday. The janitors had cleaned all the hallway floors and the staff room floor. I lasted about 4 hours at work before I couldn't deal with the smell any more. I'm still stuffed up, but no longer have a headache, nausea or feel like I'm going to burst blood vessels from sneezing. My muscles are still achy, but it takes a few hours for the residual to leave my body completely. On the plus side....it was a Friday and I got to go home early!

My positives:
1. I got to come home early from work yesterday, have a nice long nap and start my weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Kaeli stopped in after her work yesterday to check on me and stayed for a nice long visit. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I had time to make a lovely crock pot of turkey/veggie soup for supper. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Grey skies, but no snow yet to shovel. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. My Christmas present that I ordered online for Shyra arrived and both Kaeli and I are thrilled with it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Almost time to start the Christmas baking, love the smells of Christmas. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Only minus 7 this morning, beats the minus 22 and wind chills we have been having. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I am working hard at staying on track and away from the goodies that are already fast appearing at work. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. The gift of healing that is restoring my body and spirit. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Love the signs of Christmas that are starting to appear on peoples home. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful weekend...take the time to really appreciate all that you have.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Glad you didn't have to shovel this morning. When will you know the results from your MRI? Hope Garry gets to feeling better. I am just taking it easy today, yesterday was a long busy day, but so much fun to be with family, we had 24 at dinner. I'll have to get the recipe from my one DD for the stuffed squash she made, it was oh so good. That is so nice of you to offer your home for the young man, it would be lonely being on your own at Christmas. Sounds like you have a good start of your Christmas shopping and getting started on the baking too, you are amazing. Enjoy your weekend.

Hugs,
Shirl

Fabulous Friday!

Friday, November 23, 2012

Yay, it's my favorite day of the week once again! Seems a shame that such a great day only comes around once every seven days! *grin*

It's been a busy week at work and I am more than ready for a couple of days off. This weekend I will spend it getting my recipes all organized and make sure that I have all the ingredients together. Next weekend the girls and I are planning on having a baking spree. It will be mostly Kaeli and I as Shyra has a Christmas party to go to out of town on Dec. 1st, Shy will be with us part of the day though, so that is great.

Garry leaves next Thursday to head to Saskatchewan for his Mom's 80th birthday surprise. Quin is hoping to be able to go with him. All of Garry's siblings are going, so will be a great time for their Mom.

My Blessings:
1. No shoveling of snow this morning, although I may be doing it when I get home from work. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I have a doctor's appointment next Wednesday to hopefully discuss the results of my MRI. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. We are blessed with a warm home to live in, especially appreciated during this cold weather. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Time this weekend to tidy up my house and to work on my Christmas list. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Blessed with the ability to move my body and to navigate freely in my world. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Blessed with the freedom of choice. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Blessed with health and a body that functions without assistance or medication. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I am blessed with unconditional love from my family and they in turn are blessed with unconditional love in return. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am blessed with faith, sometimes lots and sometimes only the size of a mustard seed, but blessed none the less. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I am blessed with a job that I enjoy doing and a paycheque every two weeks. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful day, consider all the things that you are blessed with.

Hugs,
Wanda
