2 blogs in one day!!!!

Monday, August 11, 2008

Another day of work has come and gone...I think that our 24 hours day has somehow been shortened!

Kathy, thank you for the sunshine...mornings are starting off on the dark side already for me. 5 am and the sun is only thinking of rising! What gives?

The reunion that we are going to is actually a "town" reunion. Garry and I both grew up in the north and we lived in a small isolated community. When the mine closed down, so did the town. Now every 2 years there is a Uranium City town reunion held in the southern part of Saskatchewan. Everyone who has ever lived there tries to attend. This is the first time in many, many years that we have lived close enough to be able to attend. Many of the people going we haven't seen since we got married 34 years ago! Many friends and school mates since we both graduated from high school. It's a remarkable experience growing up in an isolated place...everyone it seems forms a life long bond and it's rather exciting to catch up on where everyone is now across Canada, some are living overseas, some in USA and South America.
We are really getting excited to be going. We will see one of our bestmen and his wife as well as school mates.

A very cloudy and overcast day today, supposed to be like this until the weekend. That's okay though, the weekend is going to be great!

Must run now and get Shy from work, supper is in the oven and I have to hunt out some pictures to take with us.

Have a wonderful evening. Marla...way to go on the walking today...just don't overdo it okay.

Hugs,
Wanda

PS...Marvelous Monday...It's marvelous, because it's a new day and a new week beginning...a new opportunity to be the best I can be.

    Wanda, how wonderful to have a town reunion!! I grew up in the "big" city of Providence and most of my neighbors were older so they are mostly gone - the neighborhood has changed completely from an Italian neighborhood to a Latino neighborhood. Very few places left that I remember other than our parish church and a local market - but so strange to go into it and see so much in Spanish instead of Italian...Have fun!

Here, too, it is dark at 5 AM...the sun still hasn't shown its face...and from all I hear, it's not going to pop out until tomorrow. Fall is so close... ~~ Hugs, Mauri

I haven't heard of a town reunion before. That's wonderful! I know how great it is to see classmates at a school reunion ......you get to see everyone you grew up with.

It does seem when we have so much to do the days just aren't long enough. Have a safe journey.

    Wanda - Your reunion sounds like lots of fun. Enjoy reminiscing. I love viewing old photos!

I won't overdo the walking. Thanks for your concern. I push myself but not to the point of pain or excursion. Thanks for caring. Before you know it, we'll be out there for our daily walks once again!

    Wanda,
That must be really something to grow up in a small town like that and get to know everyone so well... And then to have a town reunion... Now that is something I'd not heard of... That is too cool... I just know that you will enjoy yourself...

Happy to send that Sunshine... Sorry yours is disappearing so fast.. We still have plenty... ugh! Not sure what I'd do without the sunshine... It's a year round thing here... lots of it too...

Enjoy hunting for pictures... That always sparks such good memories...

((HUGS))

It's Marvelous Monday...

Monday, August 11, 2008

Good Morning everyone...it's a marvelous Monday and I'm ready for whatever comes my way! The days are starting off in the dark already, where did the longer days go??? Oh well, I just have to work harder at starting my day in a great mood!

Yesterday was a beautiful day, sun shining, family time and just enjoying life.

This week will be a topsy turvy week as far as getting on the computer and doing things...we are leaving on Thursday right after work. Just letting you know that I will be gone from the afternoon of the 14th until either the 18th or 19th before I get back on again. I'm so excited about going to the reunion. Have much to get done before going, but what doesn't get done, will not have been that important!

I'll touch base later today,
Have a spectacular day, keep moving forward and keep your hearts and eyes open to see the blessings in your day.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Wanda - Monday WAS Marvelous for me too! Thanks for the reminder! I always look for the positive, pleasant side of life anymore, especially since you have us doing our blogging... which I've missed by the way. Along with you all.

I hope you enjoy your reunion. Where's it going to be? Lots of family? I enjoyed mine in July. Time sure does fly. It was daylight when I'd leave in the mornings, now it's dark again. Didn't last long.

Marvelous Wanda on Monday.... keep smiling!

I know what you mean about the time flying. This morning I got up about 5:30 ...........there was light but I went out on the patio and the morning was very cool making me think of fall already. Seems like spring just started and we are already looking at September. I can't believe 10 day of August have already passed!

We'll miss you while you are gone. I know you are excited to see family members you haven't seen for awhile (I think that's where you are going if I remember right senior moments LOL) You are right what needs to be done will get done and the rest will be okay. Have a great time and tell us all about it when you get back. Be safe and may your angels surround you.

    Good Day my friend...

So glad you enjoyed your weekend... And thanks for reminding me that you will be gone... lol...now I won't worry about you... Isn't that funny... I've never actually met you, but I worried about you last time you took off and I didn't remember that you were going... hee hee silly me... But just goes to show you that I count you as an important person in my life...
Enjoy your Marvelous Monday...
Oh and here's a little something special for you this morning... It will light up you morning a little more... emoticon

2 day blog entry

Saturday, August 09, 2008

A very hot day yesterday. I got some walking in early in the morning, but it was just too hot to be walking outside after work.

Spent the dinner hour and evening until bedtime sitting outside on the back deck in the shade. We BBQ'd supper, had company over to join us, they all had steaks, but I enjoyed the Greek salad and potato salad. Kept well within my calorie range.

Today, I went for a 40 minute walk early this morning and then waited for the girls to get ready so we could go and do some mall walking and hunting for shoes for Kaeli. Successful day, more walking and shoes were found and purchased!

This afternoon, once again was spent reading a book in the shade of the back deck. There is a nice breeze today, so listened to my "ocean" sounds in the background while reading my book.LOL
Had a nice visit over the fence with the neighbor.

We are supposed to be getting a thunder boomer tonight. Hope it cools things down a bit.

All I can say about my day....it was a wonderfully, positive, great day!

Have no idea what tomorrow will bring, but regardless, I do know it will be a great day too!

Have a lovely evening, keep smiling.

Hugs,
Wanda

I'm a little behind in responding to blogs.

Your day sounds wonderful. Spending time with family. You got some walking in and that's something I've not been able to do lately with the canning and jelly making.

Nice to be able to sit on your deck and read.

    I love how you sit on your deck and read... I wish we could do that here... it's just to hot... even in the shade... we have such high humidity that we have to run inside to the AC... lol But your days sound like our spring... it's so nice that time of year... So that's what I imagine when you talk about sitting on your deck... lol
I'm glad that you got some walking in... And that shopping for your DD... She should be leaving soon huh?

Enjoy your Sunday my friend...

((hugs))

Yippee!

Thursday, August 07, 2008

Great day today...the computers all functioned the way they were supposed to! Yippee! no computer problems today!

A very hot day, although I got in a short 20 minute walk this morning, I'm still hoping to get out and do an longer walk this evening when things cool down somewhat. It's supposed to be even warmer tomorrow. Yikes!

I'm way under my calorie range today...just too hot to eat much, been eating fruit and drinking lots of water though. Rice cakes have been on the menu also and a salad for supper tonight.

My positives:

Did I mention that the computers worked, no problems with them today????
Did manage a short walk this morning before work.
Way under my calorie range....that could be a positive!
Friends who care.
Life in general....hey I'm alive, can't get better than that!

Have a wonderful evening all...tomorrow is Fabulous Friday, I'll be checking up on who's tooting their horn tomorrow. LOL.

Hugs,
Wanda

A quick stop...

Wednesday, August 06, 2008

Just a quick stop in tonight, I am so tired, I'm heading for bed real soon.
Think it's the heat, plus being up so early for work and another day where the computers were an issue. At least I didn't lose my profile, but all our automation was an issue today! Had to phone our IT guy at home and get him to help us out remotely. Even he was having difficulty so knew it wasn't something that I had done! Bonus...I was able to remain positive through out all the co-workers anxiously asking "when is it going to be back up". I really do believe that starting my day off in prayer and thankfulness for God's blessings is the main reason I have been able to cope so well when the world around me is chaos!

My positives:

Computers eventually began working properly...no problems that couldn't be dealt with.
Got all my strength training exercises done before heading out the door for work this morning.
A sunny day...not so thrilled with the hot temperatures (30) but bonus...I work in an AC building!
Mauri...glad I could be of assistance to you by reminding you to fix your African print throw on your living room chair! lol...anytime, just let me know if you need me to trip again! lol.
Caring friends.
God's mercy and blessings in my life.

Hugs, (I'm off to bed now, can hardly keep my eyes openzzzzzzzzz)

The heat does seem to tire us out quicker than normal.

I so understand about starting your day praying and thanking God for your blessing. If I don't get to do that I notice a difference in the way I approach things. I am so blessed.

Rest well. May the computer world be up and running for you tomorrow.

    Some days it takes a lot out of you to be positive through all that is happening around you...
I can so relate to the heat... It's really getting up there for us too... I think it was 95 f with the heat index it was more. We are so much closer to the sun this time of year that it burns you just to walk to the mailbox. lol So I'm staying in more and more...

Rest well my friend... Tomorrow is another wonderful Positive day waiting to happen...

((hugs))
