Serenity Sunday.

Sunday, September 21, 2008

Well, it very well may be the last time this year that I will be able to comfortably sit out on my back deck. Wow, the weather forecast for the next week....brrrrrrrrrr! I even had to resort to turning the furnace back on today!

A great day anyways.

Positives.

Made some head way in cleaning up some clutter. Especially my kitchen table...it seems to be the catch-all for everything that comes in the door.
A serene Sunday.
A new challenge posted.
Reading the posts and blogs of my SP family.
Looking forward to curling up this evening in my jammies and a nice warm blanket and a cup of cocoa watching Extreme home make over.
Laundry all done for another week. Oops...still have ironing to do, but it's nothing major.

Remember: You get out of life what you put into it.

Hugs,
Wanda

Hope you enjoyed Extreme home make over...

Have a wonderful day...

Thank you for mentioning clutter...I thought it was only MY kitchen table...tho' I am making some headway...I do better when John is here...when I'm alone, I tend to do nothing but read...my favorite thing to do!

    Wanda - Send that cool weather my way. I'd love it. Can't wait. As you know, today is the first day of Autumn, officially starting at 11:44 am EST. I'm in my glory! Love it. I hear you about that clutter problem. I just sat around looking at mine yesterday while you did something about yours. Actually I did get the trash can & cleaned off a spot on the living room table! At least I could put my glass of water down without sitting it on something! *sigh* Love ya, Marla

    Sounds like it's time to find a nice warm cave and start hibernating for the winter! I guess I shouldn't go on and on about how much I enjoyed floating in the pool today and getting plenty of sun (which will wrinkle my skin in a speedier fashion). Sounds like you accomplished a good day's work. I gave myself the day off. Tomorrow is another day! See ya. Here's to a great week.

  The weather it is a changin'. Your day seems to be a little quiet too. Glad you got some clutter organized I have some of that but it's in a small bedroom ...........tend to think out of sight out of mind. LOL

A cup of warm cocoa sounds good. Think I'll have one.

Just a big thank you for starting this team and all the encouragement you give us.

A very positive day!

Saturday, September 20, 2008


There's my girl hard at work excavating! Woo Hoo, a buriel site that dates back to 4000 BC is what they are working on. They are huge pottery urns that the body was placed in for burial.

Had a great day, met up with my friend that I haven't seen since January and her SIL. We had chicken caesar salads for lunch and then spent the afternoon walking around a trade show event. Lots of fun and chatting. Both Donna and Marie were shocked to see how much I have eliminated. Very excited about it for me and wanted to know all about SP. Yeah SP!
Donna had seen me in January and at that time I was hovering around the 45-50 pound elimination, now there is even more. Marie I hadn't seen for over a year, so she was very shocked. But a good shocked from both of them. Made my day!

My Positives:

A luncheon date.
Seeing Donna and her SIL
Hearing the wonderful comments on my weight elimination, and trying hard to put into practice accepting compliments graciously. It's hard to accept compliments!
A afternoon spent walking around a trade show, seeing all the interesting things.
Garry's gone for the weekend golfing, so I don't have to cook this weekend.
Just plain and simple a wonder day.

He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything. ~Arabic Proverb

Have an awesome evening,
Hugs,
Wanda

    While Kaeli is digging up some wonders, you dug up a treasure of your own. Love the quote! I'm very hopeful today. I got some good healthy glow going on. I wonder what I weigh right now? And that was a little joke that I have with myself and thought I might share with you even though it is no longer Silly Saturday. Good exercise taking a compliment yesterday. Sounds like it was a great day. Have a serenity filled Sunday.
Love,

    Wanda, what a great experience for your daughter. I remember seeing the remains and all the urns at Pompei - so interesting and for her to be a part of an excavation. WOW!

Glad you got all those positive comments!! It's such a wonderful feeling!!
Have a serene Sunday!

    Wanda,

What an awesome thing to be doing... I'm glad that your DD is doing something that is so exciting... But tell her to watch out for those mummy's... I've seen them in the movies and they are not happy if you wake them... hee hee

What fun seeing your friend and SIL and getting compliments... I'm the same and it's hard to take them... but we have to learn this... so I try to make a conscious effort to just say thank you ... It does get easier the more you do it...

Enjoy the weekend of NO COOKING... I'm jealous! lol

((hugs))

    Wanda - Looks like your daughter is having fun at her dig. I couldn't do it because my knees couldn't take it... but oh, back when....

Glad you got compliments. I know what you mean about them being hard to accept though. We all need to work on it and just graciously say a simple "thank you".
Love ya, Silly Marla

Celebration at work.

Friday, September 19, 2008


What a fun day today. Sharon was so thrilled with her "tiki" room. We just had one of those silly and fun days today.

A short blog for now, I have to head out the door again to pick up Shyra, then she needs to go shopping for a baby gift for a shower she is going to tomorrow.

My positives.

Sharon's "tiki" room was a hit.
A great day at work.
Fabulous Friday and I chose to NOT have any of the goodies.
Another sunny day.
Staff meeting done for another month.
Did I mention it's Friday! lol
Shopping with Shy for baby gift. I know that will be fun!
Although I haven't had chance to check the posts or the blogs yet, I also know that they will be encouraging, fun and filled with humor.

Have a spectacular evening all, I'll check in a bit later,
Hugs,
Wanda

  Looks like a fun day at work. I always loved days when we did something out of the ordinary or pulled surprises.

I agree you are getting good at doing the pictures. One of these days I have to explore that option and learn how to scan pictures.

Hope you enjoy your evening shopping with Shy.

It's Friday!

Friday, September 19, 2008

Wow, where did this week go! I got up this morning and realized that it was Friday already!

Last night we had a great time decorating Sharon's office area, giggling and laughing. The director of the library walked into our department as we were decorating as she had heard noise and knew that in the evenings there isn't anyone usually there. The look on her face was priceless, she burst out laughing and said that she was definitely going to be coming into work early just to be able to see Sharon's face when she walks in and sees what we have done. So today should be an interesting day.

My positives:
A fun day to look forward to.
A lunch date tomorrow with someone that I haven't seen since January!
It's Fabulous Friday!
The support and encouragement that we offer each other.
An email from Kaeli.
It's still supposed to be warm and sunny until Sunday, then the weather takes a major nose dive....the "s" word has even been mentioned!

Have a wonderfully Blessed day today, keep smiling and cheer on yourself and others.

Hugs,
Wanda

Enjoy your wonderful day and weekend too...

Long day...

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Today was a long day at work, all I kept thinking of was getting home and finding out what you all have been up to today! lol.

Things are a little tense at work, our major fund raiser is this Friday night and there are still about 100 tickets that need to be sold for the concert. Prayers would be appreciated. So much hard work has gone into all the arrangements, it would be nice if all the tickets were sold. The concert is a young up and coming country singer. He has 4 albums out already and is making a name for himself. Unfortunately, the venue booked another up and coming young country singer for the next night too. So we are in competition. Wouldn't have been so bad if the two events had been spread a little further apart, but ...nothing is impossible for God, and we need those ticket sales.

My positives:

A beautiful sunny day, although there is that taste of fall/winter in the air.
Garry got home early tonight and has taken Shy out to practice driving.
This great and wonderful team.
A load of laundry done.
Healthy choices and lots of water today, been a little slack on the water the past few days, so glad I was able to up the intake.
Just being,


The most certain sign of wisdom is cheerfulness.

(wow, the benefits I never knew of for being cheerful, lol)

Have a wonderful evening all,
Hugs,

    Brett Kissel, he's a new up and coming young man. He's about 18, I think, but very talented and has had sold out crowds at his performances.

    Wanda - Only 100 tickets left to sell? That shouldn't be too hard to do....I wish you all luck on that. Saying prayers too. Glad you remembered your water.... that's so important. Sure wish I could partake myself! So Shy's going to be getting her drivers license? Jessie got hers this year. It's a big thing for kids, you know? Gray hairs for parents!! LOL Love ya, Marla

Good Luck and I'll say a prayer too for those last 100 tickets to be sold... Nothing like listening to music... I love it... I'm watch the CMT awards right now...

Enjoy those warm sunny days... something tell me they are leaving you soon for that Fall and winter soon...
