November 6

Thursday, November 06, 2008

Yay, I got two large deadline orders entered into our system and sent today! Woo Hoo.

As a result, my eyes are tired from looking at the computer screen and down to tiny print and back up to the screen all day.

This is short and sweet today, I'm off to rest my tired eyes.

My positives.

Life is wonderful.
I accomplished some thoughtful deeds today and feel really good about them.
I'm on track and doing well.
I'm excited as it appears that Shy will gain some extra hours at work, something she really needs right now. They are only temporary for the time being, but could work into permanent down the line.
Got 7 lovely Christmas cards made last night....now who do I send them too????
I have a box of blankets and warm things to take this weekend to the shelter.
I start Yoga classes on Saturday morning.
God in my life and His endless blessings.

Have a super evening,
Hugs,
Wanda

    KathyL, what a wonderful suggestion. Thank you. I love the idea of sending them randomly to someone in the phone book.

    Here is an idea, take those lovely cards you made, open the phone book shut your eyes and point to an address, write them a thoughtful note/day brightener and just send 7 random acts of kindness.
If you don't like that idea we could all send you our addresses : + )

    Wanda - I have extra gloves, scarfs & hats that I'll be taking to a shelter too. I'm going to call my sisters to see if they have any donations... I'm sure they have plenty of "stuff" just laying around. Isn't it funny how we take some things for granted when the homeless would give about anything to have them. Like a pair of gloves or hat on a cold winter night? It's a good thing you're doing Wanda. Makes me so proud to be your friend. Love you, Marla

Writing Wednesday

Wednesday, November 05, 2008

Wow, You get up in the morning and things are the same, You come home from work, log on and look at the wonderful changes that SP has made. I'm enjoying this new format! emoticon

Heavy frost on the wind shield this morning, required a bit of effort on my part to clear it before heading down the street to work. Ahhhh, just know that snow is coming! I need a new snow shovel this year, so on the agenda for this weekend.

Most of my orders and in coming magazines today all were dealing with 2009. Yikes! it's just around the corner. Who swiped 2008????

My positives:
A day filled with blessings.
I am going out this evening to an evening of Christmas card creativity! Yes, that is Christmas cards!
So many wonderful posts and blogs to read when I got home today.
An email from Kaeli....did I tell you that she got to hold a 2500 year old baby on the weekend. They guessed the approximate age to be about 6 months old, had 2 tiny little teeth and several tooth buds still in the jaw. How cool is that!
Inspirational blog from Kathy about how wonderfully God answers prayer.
This team that just continues to lift each other up and gives so much encouragement.

Keep on living your life to the fullest.

Hugs,
Wanda

Glad you had so many positives for this day.. A 2500 old baby.. Amazing, now where else could anyone go & find this burried for them to find & examen for Her studies.. Pretty neat.. Take time & kick off your shoes & rest those tired little piggies.. Enjoy this evening My Dear Wanda.. ((HUGS))

Perfect day

Monday, November 03, 2008


This is on it's way according to the weather reports, but I'll thinking that even if we do get the predicted snow, it won't last. It's still too nice outside!

What a great day. I had the day off work, did not accomplish any of the painting that I had planned, but did accomplish finishing off some other projects that I've been putting off until I had more time.

Decided that today being motivation Monday...I needed to be motivated...that's what I did. I took myself out for two nice long walks today. First thing this morning and even in the rain and then this evening is the dusk and cooler weather. Two very different walks, but both so enjoyable.

My positives:
Bought myself a yoga mat, yoga classes start this Saturday.
Finished off some loose end things that were on my agenda. All accomplished now! YAY.
Made a nice roast for Garry for his supper, and veggies for Shy and I.
Savoring my green tea today.
Our granddaughter's mommy joined facebook today, Yay, so much easier to keep in touch and share pictures. Email from Shavon.
Got my mp3 recharged so now I can listen to music as I'm walking.
A lovely relaxing day, just being and spending time with myself.

Loved this quote of the day:

The real measure of your wealth is how much you'd be worth if you
lost all your money.

-- Bernard Meltzer (1914-) American Law Professor


Have a wonderful evening. To my wonderful American friends, don't forget to vote. If you don't vote, then don't complain!

Hugs,
Wanda

Love ya, Marla

    I'm RICH! Woo hoo!
There is beauty and peace in the snow. And there's cold to make you bundle up warmly in soft and comfy clothes and calories to burn. Snow and I used to get along just fine. But my friend snow doesn't get to visit me. I'm too far away. Instead of "absence makes the heart grow fonder", it's more like "out of sight out of mind."
I will vote today and I will not complain regardless of the outcome. I trust that there is a more qualified candidate running the show from above.
Have a fun talking Tuesday.
Love, Nancy

I heard a similar one about joy....
the measure of true joy is how you would feel if you had nothing - except God!
thanks for sharing the quote!

    good for you getting outdoors for 2 walks, you get two perks that way , exercise and fresh air not to mention sights and sounds, I always do exercise in a.m on treadmill or strength in my basement, have to get out of that rut a little.

November 02

Sunday, November 02, 2008


Not sure if this will show up well enough, but this is my MARC record on my tj-shirt for Halloween. I'm a cataloged record now! lol


What a beautiful Serenity Sunday! A day just spent connecting with my family, some reading time thrown in and relaxation. A perfect Sunday activity day.

My positives:

A wonderful phone call from Nancy...thanks Nancy you helped to make my day perfect!
A lovely phone call to our Granddaughter's parents. Thrilled to say that Doug has now been cleared to go back to work on a trial basis and a reduced work load. He may never be able to go back to his old position due to the high stress involved and his heart now needing monitoring, but he can go back to work, such a plus and positive.
Quin spent the day with us. Love seeing him.
I got my "to do" list made and even found the time to accomplish a couple of the tasks! Woo Hoo, a head start on next week.
I have tomorrow off work, always a nice change of pace. I hope to accomplish the rest of the hallway!
A wonderfully, calm and peaceful day just relaxing and making conversation. (it should have been Talking Tuesday...with all the talking I did today! lol)

Enjoy your evening and make the choice to be healthy.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Re the cat: I have no idea why Kismet won't eat unless someone is in the kitchen with her. She has always been that way. We got her from an animal shelter when she was only a couple of months old. She also cries if she is left alone! If you've turned the lights off and gone to bed and she didn't happen to notice that's where you went...she'll start crying until you call her. Abandonment issues I guess!

    Hmmmmm.... Narrated by voices in her head eh? Have you talked to anyone about this yet? LOL
No Worries I hear them too... ROFLMBO! You are so funny...

What a great day you had... Lots of communicating...

Enjoy your Monday off...

Oh and you must tell us more about those strange cats of yours sometime... lol I love animal stories... And I wonder why your cat won't eat if you're not there... hmmm... lol

November 1

Saturday, November 01, 2008

It even feels cold typing November....thankfully, still no snow on the ground. It's that first snowfall that really seals that winter is here! Just have to adjust my thinking again about the snow, when the snow falls Wanda, it's an opportunity to burn more calories! lol

We didn't have very many little trick or treaters at our door last night, very surprising, seeing as it was a Friday night and the temperatures weren't too bad. Maybe because it was a Friday night, the adults had plans so they made other arrangements for the kids, don't know. We had only about 25 kids....now I have all this candy that needs to head out the door. I'll end up taking it to work, where it will disappear very quickly.

Today will be a day of getting more things on my "to do" list accomplished, so I'm off to tackle the day.

Have an awesome day, I'll check in later with my positives.
Right now the big positive is that I woke up this morning, I've been blessed with another day of life, so now it's my job to make it the best that I can.

Hugs,
Wanda

You seem to be well aware of the prospect of snow. When do you normally get your first snow? While it gets colder here , it seems the real winter takes place more in January and February. Sometimes we get earlier cold snaps.

It worked the opposite here for Halloween. We had more than usual. Started about 5:30 and it was 9:00 before they stopped. It's funny they bring them at the first street and walk the subdivision. Took my candy to my daughter's. Out of here.

    Wanda, You sound really positive for today.. Snow might be on it's way soon.. We had all of the Kids in Our Son's Neighborhood
Well over 100 # or so.. DIL's Dad took charge of handing out the candy.. Large bars & bowl of sm.. He would put about 5 sm bars in each bag.. Lucky that we all brought our candy over so that there was more than enough.. I know that everyone at work are like kids & will enjoy the left over treats.. Enjoy this day & Have some fun with it..
