I love your last line!

"Choose to make today the day that you move forward in your walk to health."

Talk about serendipity....

Just read a blog that talked about goals and words and she said: " I've chosen the word CHOOSE as My One Word for 2013"

Wow!!

    I'm feeling about the same with thoughts this morning, Wanda.

Enjoy catching up with Kaeli...

Glad that Garry now has a doctor who is observant...and who communicates. Hope whatever it is is a simple thing...or nothing.

Love the warmer - using the term loosely in winter - temps. Today we are in the single Farenheit digits. Brrrr....My heaters just can't do the job...and yesterday we had problems with heat at work. So thankful to have Gracie & Katie...who snuggled up last night so we all shared our body heat! :) And they are soft...

Enjoy your day!

The handbells are out again.

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Seeing as I am having to slow down on the walking due to my knee issues, that has really cut into my exercise routine. So once again I am hauling out the handbells and developing an exercise routine that will at least keep my upper body working out. I'm "challenging" myself to pick up any slack in my routine and keep on going.

The holiday season is over with and it's back to a more regular routine. I am definitely a creature of habit...I like routine. Mess with it and I'm off track!

My Positives:
1. I have a couple of different weights in the handbells and have a plan in place to start using them on a daily basis once again. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Although I have some severe knee issues, I am not letting it hold me back any more than necessary. I have adjusted my exercise and I'm going forward. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. We got paid a day early, great way to start off a New Year with a payday, Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I finally found some "snap and stack" storage containers. They will work great for the Christmas ornaments. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I have a busy day ahead of me at work, which I really like, the day goes by so much faster. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. A lovely quiet day yesterday, a great way to bring in the New Year. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. We started tackling the take down of all the Christmas decorations yesterday, but will finish the job this coming weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you. (Garry's help is so appreciated)
8. Garry is feeling better, still some coughing, but he goes to the doctor again today for the results of his blood work and xrays. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. A nice phone chat with my brother yesterday. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. We are blessed with a new day of life and the opportunity to be the best we can be. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful day....make wise choices.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Happy 2013, Wanda!

You have inspired me to go back to my indoor walking for winter. With my winter work schedule I actually have time for it.

Hoping my day is busy too so it passes quickly...though there is a meeting at 3 PM...and meetings here last forever...and maybe it will actually accomplish something this time.

Hugs.

    Great idea to incorporate some ST into your routine. Even if you are slowing down, you are still kicking my behind, LOL :) I'm glad to be back to routine too. Have a great day!

Bring on 2013!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

A new year just waiting for me to explore, enjoying and grow in. Woo Hoo!

We had a very quiet New Year's Eve. Shy and Kyle did stop in, Quin ended up going out with friends and Kaeli is spending time with friends in BC. Garry and I did manage to stay up to watch the clock tick over on our local TV station. Nothing exciting, but very enjoyable.

It's still hard to kick the habits of my growing up years....today will be a foretelling of the year to come by how today goes. Maintaining a happy and cheerful attitude and doing all I can to set a positive tone *grin*.

My Positives:
1. 2012 was a year filled with many opportunities to learn, grow and become healthier, I'm looking for even more positive directions in 2013. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Family time last evening and sitting around playing a board game. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Nice mild temperatures, unusual at this time of year, but enjoying them none the less. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. My cousin's birthday today...Happy Birthday Laureen...hope your day is very blessed. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I have today off work and then it's back to work tomorrow. Thank you that I have a job to go to. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm excited about my word for 2013 "challenge". I want to be mindful and challenge myself to exceed my limits. thank you, thank you, thank you.
7, Only two more weeks until I see the specialist about my knee. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Having access to internet...what a blessing and how much easier it has made my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am blessed with a wonderful and loving family. thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. A new year, a new month and untold opportunities, challenges, and blessings. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful day.
Hugs,
Wanda

    Happy New Year my friend. Hope that 2013 has time for some sparking in it for me. I'm going to try. Just got my computer back online, so that's a good start. Let's make 2013 a great year.
Love,

Last day of 2012

Monday, December 31, 2012

Another year is closing and a new one lies ahead. What will it hold, will it be a successful year and how, will I grow and learn and put into practice all that I am learning? So many questions. The great part about all of it....it's all based on my choices! Yep, I am the one in charge of all my decisions and consequently all the results. Bring on 2013...I'm ready for it!

Normally I would already be at work, but this morning I get to go in a bit later as I have to stay later due to year end roll-over. So many last minutes things to do to ensure that everything goes smoothly.

My positives:
1. I can look back on 2012 and see that even with the ups and downs, it's been a great and wonderful year. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I get to go into work a bit later today, which meant an extra hour of sleeping in. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I am ready for the new year a head. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. My word of encouragement is chosen for 2013, "challenge". I will challenge myself to be the best I can be, to make wise choices and meet the challenges I face with a positive attitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Shyra, Kyle and Quin are coming over tonight. Kaeli is visiting in BC. Thank you, thank you, thank you for my children living so close.
6. I got my clothes closet all cleaned out and organized yesterday. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. We are in for some milder temperatures this coming week. Woo Hoo, no minus 20's and 30's in store. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I will start on my New Year's letter after work today. I'm all organized for it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9, I just realized that I don't have a new calendar, I will need to stop any pick one up today. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the reminder.
10. It's a great day to be alive, we have said good bye to many people this year, thank you that it was not to any immediate family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a great last day of 2012.

Hugs,
Wanda

Dec 30

Sunday, December 30, 2012

A crazy night of dreaming and being restless, but oddly enough, I do feel relatively rested this morning. I did sleep in until 8am which is very unusual for me.

I made a nice crock pot of stew yesterday using up leftovers from the fridge. Texted the kids and they came and joined us for supper. Shyra's boyfriend was going to join us, but he got a call out for work, which meant heading out of town for him. He did arrive back home around 10pm last night and stopped in for his bowl of stew. Shy was still here playing cards with us, so Kyle drove her home instead of me having too. Bless his heart.

My brother was heading through town last evening also and stopped and phoned us to meet up for a coffee. That was great as it's been awhile since he saw Quin and Shy.

Today, I'm rearranging kitchen cupboards and I am motivated to do my clothes closet! As soon as Garry gets up, I'm heading in there to do just that!

My positives:
1. Having a healthy crock pot of stew for supper last night and the kids joining us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Kyle was granted travel mercies on the icy roads and was able to stop by on his way home. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Layne is getting lots of work with his rig to help make up for the down time while his truck was being repaired. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I was able to take advantage of some great sales yesterday online. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Garry is feeling better with the medicine that he was given by the doctor. Hopefully he will be completely well very soon. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I am looking forward to 2013 and all the possibilities that lie ahead. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. We have only the upper level in our house left to renovate, it's been a long process, but there is light at the end of the tunnel now. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. A beautiful sunny day yesterday...we actually made it up to plus 3! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. It's amazing to see how a grateful and positive attitude is attracting more of the same into our lives. It used to be a struggle to find 10 positives things first thing in the morning when I first started doing this, now it's a struggle to find negative things. Woo Hoo. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I have been granted a new day of life and I will make the best choices possible to honor the gift of life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda
