Plugging along

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Tuesday and a full agenda at work. Nothing new to add to my blog, just the usual ramblings *grin*

My eating yesterday although not bad, certainly could have been better. I wasn't really hungry. For me that is not always good, as I tend to pick here and there then. The pick here and there stuff was not the best choices. Oh well, today is a new day and I will step up to the plate and do a better job.

My Plus's:
1. Quin stopped over for a brief visit last evening with Garry and I. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I'm making head way with getting material that will not be coming in this year rolled over to next year's budget at work. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. It snowed over night, but has stopped now. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm getting my exercise first thing this morning as I shovel snow. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. A nice letter from friends yesterday, always nice to catch up on news. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I have been able to get this Friday off of work, yay a long weekend to get things done. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. The referral has been done for me to see a specialist, now I just wait for an appointment. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. It's a new day of life, new opportunities, new challenges and a great chance to be the best I can be. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Learning to live in the moment. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I am blessed with wonderful friends and family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a great day because it's your choice!

Hugs
Wanda

    Plugging along, that's about how I feel, glad I see my doc on Thurs. Glad you get a long weekend to get your stuff done. Some of us ladies decorated the community room this morning, getting done later this year. Stamp club potluck was nice last night, got 9 different cards from the card exchange. I am going to work on my Christmas cards today and hope I get them all done and ready to mail. That was nice Quin got to stop by last night for a visit. Have a good evening.

Hugs,
Shirl

    My eating has been out of sorts too, but I think I've managed to find a happy medium in order to maintain :) Hope you have a wonderful day!

We are on countdown to the end of the year!

Monday, December 10, 2012

Depending on how one looks at it we either have 21 days to the end of the year or we have 11 days to end of the Mayan calendar year *grin*. Either way there will be and ending and a new beginning.
It's time to start thinking about my new word for 2013. The word that I will use as my inspiration, motivation and challenge to myself. My word for 2012....determination has been well used. It's also time to review what worked for me and what didn't and make adjustments accordingly.

This weekend, I got all my cookies baked (still have icing to do on some of them), got a birthday celebration complete (birthday is actually tomorrow, so not really complete), some decisions made and completed about Christmas gifts, some Christmas wrapping done and a much better idea of what is left to do. Yep, a great weekend.

We have a very close friend's birthday today, son's tomorrow, Shirl's birthday next Monday, Shy's birthday on Tuesday and BIL birthday on Wednesday and then Christmas, woo hoo.
We will start all over again in January with family birthdays (hubbys and eldest daughters)

Weather has been awesome this past weekend. Once again our weather forecaster has been wrong....YAY....we did not get all the snow that was predicted. Minus 18 yesterday and right now at 5am it is only minus 2! Crazy weather for sure.

My Blessings:
1. Garry and I got the inside tree all decorated and looking good. We didn't put as much out this year as usually, but happy with it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. We found the perfect Christmas gift for our son. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Christmas baking is almost done. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm finding my Christmas spirit now that I'm finally feeling like I'm not going in circles chasing my tail. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. It's a nice warm day with no wind and snow happening. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. A great weekend to look forward to this coming weekend. Pizza party time and celebrating Shy's birthday (early). Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I am learning to leave things with the Lord instead of playing give and take. Thank you, thank you, thank you. (I think I learn it and then I realize that over time I've slipped again)
8. I am blessed with God's healing touch. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am blessed with being able to share what I have. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I have blessed once again with a new day of life. A new opportunity to be the best I can be. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful day....you are alive!

Hugs,
Wanda

Today's agenda

Sunday, December 09, 2012

Today's agenda:
Decorating the inside of the house for the holidays! Although I don't think I will go all out as usual, we will get the tree up and a few of the other decorations placed around the house.

We had a great time celebrating Quin's birthday last evening. It wasn't a late night though as Q has to work today, but at least we were all together.

I got the cookies all baked yesterday, just have to do some icing on the shortbread logs. I still need to finish off my recipes in a jar project and a few little things to buy for Christmas and I will be ready for the big day.

Shy's birthday on the 18th and I'm still attempting to figure out what to get her. I just might end up taking her shopping and get her to pick out something!

My blessings:
1. Family time, it's always lots of laughter and happiness with being together. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I love that my family is more comfortable with the simply things in life and just being together. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Afton coming over and sharing the evening with us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Answered prayers. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. The predicted snow for yesterday didn't materialize. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I have Dec 24 to the 26th off work, but with the 24th being a Monday, I will have the weekend prior off also. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I am blessed with a new day of life with unexplored opportunities and challenges to meet. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I am blessed to have such wonderful friends in my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Working at the library enables me to always have on hand excellent reading material. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Most of all, I am blessed with the inner knowledge that God is in control even when I have my doubts. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a great day. Choose to make wise decisions.

Hugs,
Wanda

Silly Saturday

Saturday, December 08, 2012

Silly Saturday once again...time to take up the challenge of finding and sharing giggles and laughs through out the day.

I have a busy day ahead of me. It's my monthly massage day and I have cookie baking to accomplish today. This evening we will be getting together as a family to help celebrate Quin's birthday. Although his birthday is not until Tuesday, we will celebrate this weekend as he is working out of town next week.

Our Professional Dev. Day at work yesterday was very good. A long day though, but worth it.

My positives:
1. It's my massage day today...yay! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Time to do some more of the Christmas baking. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I stayed on track very well yesterday with eating. Lots of salads and veggies, even fruit were available to choose from for our Potluck lunch. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Cold temperatures out doors, but I have a nice warm home. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Garry, who works so hard to support his family and is such a giving person. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I have free will to make my own choices. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I have time today to catch up on household chores. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I have been blessed with a new day of life with untold opportunities lying in wait for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. No snow to shovel yet today, although we are supposed to get lots this weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. All the necessities of life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful day. Make this a day of happiness, laughter and fun.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Enjoy your massage today and your cookie baking. Thank you for getting Silly Saturday going, I was pretty busy getting ready for the brunch this morning, we had a great time, and I guessed wrong on my secret sister and was a different lady, but she's been a great secret sister, I have two gift certificates now one for Hobby Lobby and one for Jo-Ann's, now I can't wait till Jan. and the sales. Tell Quin happy birthday. Sounds like you were doing some mindful eating at your work potluck, good for you. This month has been full of food and it's not over yet. Enjoy your weekend.

Hugs,
Shirl
