March 19

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

So I didn't have to shovel snow yesterday morning before heading to work, I did have to clear the sidewalk though as Garry said he would do the driveway when he got up. It started snowing again later in the morning and bless Garry's heart, he came home at lunch time and shoveled for me so that I didn't have to do it when I got home from work.
No snow this morning to clear, but we are supposed to get more this afternoon and over night. Mother Nature...you are cruel! Bring on Spring ....Please!

My Gratefuls:
1. I'm grateful for my hubby and his willingness to leave his work to come home and shovel snow so that I wouldn't have to shovel when I got home. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I'm grateful for a nice warm house to protect us from the Arctic temperatures that seem to want to settle in. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I'm grateful for the age of technology that helps me to accomplish my job with ease and to stay in contact with friends and family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm grateful for a body that gives me mobility and keeps me healthy even when I have not done my best to assist it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I'm grateful for the blessings big and small that come my way each day and for the mindfulness to acknowledge them. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm grateful that I live in a county that promotes a green life style. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm grateful for the gift of memory that helps me to remember past, present and future events. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I'm grateful for laughter that brightens my day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm grateful for the my heated garage that enables me to get in my vehicle each morning in the winter and not have to dig out from under snow or ice. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm grateful to have been blessed with an new day of life and the opportunity to do even better today than yesterday in all aspects of my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Yay, a short work week for me.

Monday, March 18, 2013

I have a short work week this week as I've taken off Friday and next Monday to use up some of my overtime hours. The bonus is that when I booked the time off, I didn't realize that the following weekend was the Easter weekend to boot, so another long weekend because of Good Friday! I also have a very short week the week after as I've booked off April 4 and 5th as I have my appointment on the 4th and figured I might as well see about using up more overtime by taking the 5th off too. Almost as good as having a holiday *grin*.

We got a small bit of snow again over night, but I won't have to worry about shoveling this morning in order to get out of the driveway. We are supposed to be heading into some warmer weather and if Garry thinks it needs shoveling when he gets up, I'll be generous and leave it for him *grin*.

My Gratefuls:
1. I'm grateful that the heavy snowfalls that we have been having for the past few days seem to be over. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I'm grateful for a short work week ahead. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I'm grateful that I was able to get almost all my Collectors dolls listed on Kiijii, Lord willing they will sell. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm grateful that I am letting go of "things" that no longer serve a purpose in my life and freeing up my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I'm grateful that I have had Garry's help with the snow shoveling. Not only does it go faster with two people doing it, but it means that Garry's leg is much better. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm grateful that I will have undisturbed time this coming weekend to get all the taxes done, a chore that is necessary but not my favorite to do. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm grateful for a busy day at work and that I love my job. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I'm grateful for my quiet times to enjoy meditating and reading in. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm grateful for the friendships that have been created through Sparkpeople. What a blessings these people are in my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm grateful that I have been blessed with a new day of life and I have the opportunity to become a healthier person. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful day, it's a new day and yours to be creative in.

\Hugs,
Wanda

Winter is definitely letting us know that it's not ready to go!

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Three days of on and off snowing have left us knowing that winter still has us in it's grip. The temperature is bitter and with the wind chill added to it, it's not so pleasant out there shoveling.

On the plus side of this weather, it's only three days until the official first day of spring *grin*, it's March and winter is not going to be here forever, Garry's leg is healed enough that he can come out and help me shovel. There is always a bright spot in everything. *grin*.

We had a good day yesterday. Once we got all the snow shoveled, Garry and I headed out to Costco for a much needed shopping expedition. I got my weekend chore list done. Then we picked up Kaeli in the evening and as none of us had eaten yet, we went out to Boston Pizza for some appetizers and a visit. Not the healthiest of meals, but because no one was really hungry, it was sufficient enough to say we had something.

My Gratefuls:
1. I'm grateful for the healing in Garry's leg and that he was able to come out and help with all the snow shoveling these past few days. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I'm grateful for family time and the wonderful relationship we have with our children. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I'm grateful for quiet time in the morning to do my meditation and slowly wake up to my day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm grateful being able to fix my computer without having to take it in someplace. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I'm grateful for the gift of laughter, our lives would be so dull without it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm grateful that I have the ability (with the help of Turbo) to do our own taxes. I've gathered everything together and that is my task for next Friday. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm grateful that I have next Friday and the following Monday off in an attempt to use up more of my overtime. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I'm grateful for the a warm and snug home that shelters us, especially in these winter months. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm grateful to work at a library where books are plentiful and I have the opportunity to explore new topics and learn without costing me money. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm grateful for the gift of a new day of life...it means that my life mission is not yet done. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    WOW, can't believe how much snow you are getting. Don't send it my way please, LOL. On the positive, you sure are putting in a lot of steps :) Have a great day!

Some computer issues this morning.

Saturday, March 16, 2013

My computer was giving me some issues this morning. The fan started making a loud noise and the then the computer quit responding. I've spent some time in the "safe mode" looking for potential problems. I've discovered that something called "super fetch" and "windows search" were not responding properly. Interesting trying to find out information about them. Anyway the long and short of it is that I did find a program called "DiskMax" that I was able to download and it spent some time cleaning up my computer. Now things are working once again and I have noticed that it's working much faster. Yay!

My Thank you's:
1. Thank you for to Cloudeight for helping me to find solutions to keeping my computer running at optimum. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you the I don't have to go to work this morning and with all the snow that is still coming down, I am not in a rush to get it shoveled. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Thank you for my dentist who stays up to date with all the modern technology and makes my dental visits a breeze. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you for the information that I received at the dental office that has me now informed that once I have my knee replaced, I will need to take antibiotics before visiting a dentist for cleaning. I take one pill an hour before each visit. My surgeon will apparently let me know if this is a life time or only a several year thing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you for hearing back so quickly from our friend with regards to our house plans. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you for all the blessings that are coming Garry's way with his work. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you for the gift of healing that is at work in our lives. Thank you, thank you. thank you.
8. Thank you for a warm and safe home to live in, the abundance that we have in our lives. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in a mediation challenge. What a blessing each session is. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the gift of friendship and love that we share with so many. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful Saturday,
Hugs,
Wanda

Thank Goodness it's March and nearing the end of winter! At least I hope winter's end is in sight. Judging from the amount of snow that has and is still is falling, I'm not so sure!

2. Thank you that we have dental coverage and that my dental appointment today is covered. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Thank you for all this snow we have had this winter, it will provide moisture to the ground and replenish the water table as it melts. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you for there not being ice under the snow as I shovel it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. The blessing of a good nights sleep is very much appreciated. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you that it is Friday and I have a lovely weekend to look forward to. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you for the meditation challenge that I am doing and the great thoughts of the day it is providing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for blessing our family with guidance, peace and strength. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
