Nearing the end of March

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

It's coming close to an end of another month. I can't say that I have done a whole lot other than maintaining this month. I'm not complaining though as I would rather being maintaining than gaining!
I see my surgeon for a consult next week and hope that it won't be too long after before the surgery is done. I'm so looking forward to being able to go for long walks and swimming once again.

My Gratefuls:
1. I'm grateful for the mobility that I do have and that by modifying how I do somethings, I've been able to still get a good amount of steps in each day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I'm grateful for having had 4 days off work to rest my knee somewhat and only a 3 day work week this week, before another 3 day weekend. What a life *grin*. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I'm so grateful for the sun shine that brightens up my day and makes me feel energized. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm grateful that today is payday and I can once again get all the bills paid. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I'm grateful for technology that allows a person to share pictures with their phone. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm grateful for the freedom to make my own choices. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm grateful for my vision board that reminds me to stay focused on my dreams. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I'm grateful for having a yard that once the snow leaves, I can plant a veggie garden. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm grateful for my kefir that helps to keep me healthy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm grateful that I have been granted another day of life, help me to make it the best day yet. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Time for routine again.

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

My lovely 4 day weekend has drawn to an end and it's back to work for me. But what a great week...only 3 working days and then another long weekend due to Easter. A person could get used to this *grin*

I really needed some down time and feel so much better for it.

My Positives:
1. Although I had an on again off again sleep last night, I'm ready to face the day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I had a chance to feel like Susie Homemaker yesterday, a nice crock pot of stew and some loaves of Amish Cinnamon bread made. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Reassurances that life is on track. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. A beautiful sunny day once again yesterday, supposed to be this way for the rest of the week. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I got the income taxes all done and made a good start on de-cluttering stuff that was in storage. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Garry had a great report from his specialist yesterday. It appears that everything has healed well, he may have some issues with swelling off and on for the next year, but that is normal. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm learning to stay focused on my dreams and not to worry about the details. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I have a new day ahead of me to continue to improve and do better in. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. My family and friends support and encourage me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm blessed with health, love, and all that I need. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a great Tuesday.
Hugs,
Wanda

I'm working on continuing to move forward.

Monday, March 25, 2013

I've been at a stand still for so long now, it's time to really get moving forward again in all areas. It seems like as I'm working on one area of my life the others all slowly grind to a halt. Multi-tasking is not something I am doing well when it comes to me!

It's time to get moving in all areas.

My Positives:
1. I have greatly enjoyed and was in big need of some time off. These past few days of recharging my batteries have been so good. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I have one more day of not being at work, and although I knew I needed to get up early this morning so that I could go to sleep early tonight, I'm okay with that. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Garry see's his specialist this morning and we are trusting that it will be all good news. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Only one more week until I see the surgeon for a consult. I'm expecting good news there also. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I have slowly but surely been de-cluttering and putting things aside for a garage sale this spring. It's great asking myself questions as I make the decision to keep or not keep. "Have I used this in the past 2 years, If there was a disaster, would I save this item?" It's a real mind opener to give yourself honest answers. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I have time today to go and stock up on some fresh veggies and fruit for this week. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm finding it much easier to keep an open mind about things that I am hearing and learning that don't necessarily resonate within. I'm able to just let them go as not being for me, but they might be someone else's journey. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Signs of spring are in the air...the sun is shining and although no melting is occurring as yet, the birds are beginning to sing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. The solar lights that we have outside on the front veranda posts are still on this morning! That means the they got lots of light yesterday to last themselves through the night. Woo Hoo. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. The blessing of being granted a new day of life, to start afresh today, to be all that I have been created to be. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful Monday,
Hugs,
Wanda

March 24

Sunday, March 24, 2013

We had a beautiful but cold sunny day yesterday. So nice to see the sunshine once again.

I had a nice and relaxing day. Took my time with the de-cluttering and will continue with doing a bit each day. The girls and I are going to hold a garage sale this spring and I figured it was a great way of getting rid of yet more "things". At first I thought I wouldn't have very much that I could put in for make up a sale, but as I go through things, I'm realizing that I actually have a lot!
It's funny how what was once so important in your life, no longer holds a purpose and I'm more than happy to let it go.

My positives:
1. Slowly but surely I'm finding things that I can easily let go of and each time I make the decision I feel lighter. I've found a great way of making that decision...I ask myself " If there were a disaster, would I attempt to save this item". *grin* it works for me! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I've decided on a great project to tackle once I've had my surgery and am needing to recover. I'm determined to finish tackling my picture project that I keep poking away at. I will have an extended period of time to work on it, so a good opportunity presents itself. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. The girls called last night and came over for some rounds of Uno. We had so many laughs and a great visit. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. The beautiful sunshine...ahhh, it feels so nice to sit in a sunbeam. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I'm enjoying having these 4 days off work. The opportunity to relax and recharge is wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Winter is almost over. We are now over the hump and spring is in sight. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Knowing that in another couple months, I'll be able to start putting my garden in. I'm looking forward to having nice fresh produce direct from my garden. We are so blessed to have garden space. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Starting my day off each morning on a positive note with listing my positives/gratefuls/blessings has such a great impact on how my day goes. Thank you, thank you, thank yo.
9. Learning to being open to whatever direction our lives take us and being excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Life in general, we are so blessed to be living in an age where amazing things are possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful Sunday, be grateful for all that you have in your life.
Hugs,
Wanda

Income Tax is done!

Saturday, March 23, 2013

I got the income taxes done yesterday and so glad that chore is behind me. I still have to netfile them, but I need to wait for a code from the Government before I can do that. Usually they send you a code towards the end of the prior year. They did and I filed the unopened envelope with the income papers. I should have opened it but figured it was no different than every other year. Sighhhh. This year they have decided to stop doing that and you must set up an account with the Government and wait for them to mail you a number if you want to netfile. My own fault for not having opened the envelope. Oh well, the taxes are still done and now I have the accounts set up and now just need to wait for the number to arrive in the snail mail. I'm so glad to have them done though. I took me most of yesterday of get everything done. Garry's really stress me out as his is so complicated.
Now I have the rest of my long weekend to do what ever I want *grin*, the big chore is done.

My Gratefuls:
1. I'm so grateful that although it took me all day to do them, the taxes are done for another year. I can netfile them as soon as the number arrives. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. We had sunshine for most of yesterday, cold temps, but no more snow. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I have three days of my four day weekend left to relax, recharge and enjoy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I am grateful for a good nights sleep last night. I woke up early this morning feeling refreshed. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I am grateful for Quin's phone call last evening to let us know that all is good at his work site. The amount of snow that came down has created some problems for them, but all is well. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Garry has the weekend off work and we can spend time together. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm grateful for having a Costco store locally and being able to make sure that I have on hand all those staples that we use. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I'm grateful for having the room to have a cold storage room in my house. Knowing that I only need to go downstairs to get supplies is wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9 I'm grateful for the love that my family shares for each other. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm grateful for my washer and dryer that make doing laundry so much easier. I would love to be able to have a clothes line in my back yard for those warm and sunny days, but not complaining about having a quick way of drying the clothes either. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful Saturday. Take the time to enjoy your life.

Hugs,
Wanda

    I use to do my taxes too, but because we worked in a different province from where we lived, it was so stressful that I decided to pay to get it done. So much easier, hee hee. Glad you got yours done. Hope you had a great day.
