No snow overnight, YAY!

Monday, April 08, 2013

We are supposed to get some sunshine today, so hopefully the snow that we have had over the weekend will soon be on it's way to making puddles of water.

Quin and his dog stopped in yesterday for a nice visit before he had to head back to work out of town. Sage was so excited to play in the snow in the backyard. It was actually funny watching her racing around and jumping in the snow banks. Quin's got a couple more weeks of working this job before spring breakup happens and then he will be done until fall, as he heads up north to do his guiding job in May. It's hard to believe how fast this year is going!

My Blessings:
1. Thank you for the great visit with Quin and Sage yesterday. It was nice to catch up with each others news and watch Sage be so abandoned with her playing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I slipped on a pair of pants for work this morning that have been border line "snug" to find that they are no longer "snug". Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I have a busy day ahead of me at work today, I like being busy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I had a wonderfully relaxing and revitalizing four day weekend and now I am ready to head back to work. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I am blessed with guidance that when I pay attention to it, steers me in the direction that is best for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I am blessed with awesome children and a hubby that support and encourage me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Spring is just around the corner, the days are getting longer and there is more heat in the sun. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I have been meeting all my goals that I have set for myself for this month. Yay me! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am learning more and more to "let go" and "let God". So much easier than trying to do it all myself! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I am blessed with a new day of life and the untold opportunities it will contain to be the best I can be. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a great day, it your choice!

Hugs,
Wanda

Spring, where are you?

Sunday, April 07, 2013

We are still in the process of accumulating snow! Where is spring?

On the plus side, it's quiet and things look nice and white again. We are supposed to get sun and plus temps again by the week of this week, so perhaps spring will make an appearance then.

My Positives:
1. I have had a lovely 4 day weekend, time to catch up on some sleep, recharge my batteries and enjoy life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. The great thing about early mornings...how quiet it is. I love the quiet time. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

6. I have been doing well with meeting my goal of exercising and strengthening my leg in preparation for surgery. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I am blessed with generally great health and am free of taking prescriptions. The natural home remedies that I use are keeping me in this state. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the knowledge.
8. I have a warm and safe place to call home. I have the means to get to my work and back that is safe and reliable. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I have the ability to think clearly and to manage my own self care. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  We are also having more snow. Sigh, but it's awesome that we have no where near the amount they had in Regina. Regina has officially had 7 feet of snow so far this winter. Imagine feeling sorry for them, I am usually envious of their mini-chinooks. I did not like to read that you had more snow. We are heading there for a wedding next weekend. Guess I better put in my snowboots. :)

Have a super great week.

Looking on the bright side.

Friday, April 05, 2013

Well, I'm one step closer to having my surgery! Now I just have to wait until I get a call from them to come for a 6 hour Teaching session about having the surgery. Which I'm told could be in the next 3 months. Once that's done, then I get my surgery within 3 months after that. Just think, it's only been a year so far of jumping through their hoops and seeing one "specialist" after another. I'm getting really good at being an acrobat. *grin* On the plus side, I still have my sense of humor.

My Plus's:
1. I finally got in to actually talk to the surgeon, well actually his nurse after he looked at my knee. She was very good at answering my questions. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I'm one step closer to having the surgery, papers are all signed and now it's waiting once again. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the step forward.
3. The snow held off until this morning so that our drive to and from the city yesterday was without concerns. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I have a better time frame of when to expect my surgery and when I will be off work for recovery. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I have a nice long weekend to enjoy and hopefully complete a project that I am working on. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I now have some exercises to do each day that will strengthen my leg safely prior to having the surgery and to do post surgery. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I have some nice fresh fruit in my fridge that I can eat today as well as to make up into a nice coconut milk smoothie. Yay! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. My new chalkboard labels for my jars arrived yesterday along with my soapstone chalk. Now I can reuse the labels by just erasing and rewriting on them. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I have time today to do some baking and refill the cookie jar for Garry. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I have been blessed with a new day of life, which means that my mission is not yet complete. I will use this day to be the best I can be. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a great and wonderful Friday,
Wanda
