Jan 29 What an interesting day...

Thursday, January 29, 2009

What an interesting day I am having. Have today off work and it's been one interesting occurrence after another all day. You know when you start your day off with an attitude of gratitude and let God know that you are open to receiving whatever blessings He is bringing your way...such interesting things happen!

I got up this morning and had such an overwhelming abundance of energy...not sure where it's coming from...but I'm thinking it's because I'm choosing to have an awesome day. I tackled the masterbedroom bathroom, cleaned it from top to bottom, including "THAT" drawer that always seems to accumulate bits and pieces. The drawer is now almost empty and waiting to receive it's next batch of incoming miscellenous items. Next it was off to the kitchen, hauled out the crockpot and the ingredients to make a stew for supper. Used up all the veggies I had in the fridge, including a couple of canned items. YAY, that's simmering away now.
Phoned Shy and left her a voice mail. She has her lunch break from 11:30 to 12:30. Met her for lunch. We went out to my new favorite restaurant...Burrito Libra and had a very healthy veggie filled burrito bowl. I love the name as it doesn't include a burrito only the makings. Then off to the grocery store to stock the pantry once again. It is bonus points week at the store and I got my bonus points! YAY me!
Now the groceries are all put away. I was supposed to get my haircut and styled today...it needs it badly. But alas, the owner phoned me to let me know that yet once again, they have had to delay their opening due to unfinished construction. She has had to postpone my appt twice now, and is feeling really bad. Not a problem...as she offered to come to my house tonight at 8pm to cut my hair...now how often do you have that happen. She doesn't even know me! Bless her heart...another blessing from God, as He knows we have a full weekend of events going on, that I wanted to look my best at.
I chose a great day to have off work, as the repairman has started painting in our department and Shy says the fumes are bad, I would have had to go home anyway. Yep, another blessing. I'm just trusting God that the fumes will not be strong tomorrow as I go back.
Decided to buy a lotto ticket today also, something I don't do on a regular basis. Figured if the universe is conspiring to give me such an awesome day, I might as well increase my chances of having an "really" good day! lol

My positives:
Full of energy.
A day off work.
Met Shy for lunch and had a great healthy lunch.
Grocery shopping all done for another week, earned my bonus points.
Crockpot simmering away with a nice veggie stew for supper.
It's beautifully warm outside, snowing a little, but melting at the same time.
I don't have to go out to get my hair cut...I'm having a home haircut!
God who delights me in so many ways with all His blessings.

Hope you are having just as great a day.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Wow Wanda!! What a terrific day. Thank you for sharing that. You know, I used to do that. I'd wake up EVERY morning and pray that my heart is open to God's will throughout the day. I do remember having many days as you described here. I need to start doing that again. Thank for your the gentle reminder.

And thank you for all your kind and supportive words as I've been struggling lately. You are a true friend!

    Your day sounded pretty darn awesome, hope you are a winner with your ticket. How did the haircut turn out? Will we see a picture? Inquiring minds want to know, lol. Have a great Friday, hopefully the paint fumes will be hardly noticable.

Hugs,

Mindful goodness,

January 27

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

A great day, much was accomplished at work. I finally feel like I am making some much needed head way with the orders that accumulated while I was on holidays. I'm living in awareness and when I feel myself faltering, I have been able to redirect my thought and actions to a more positive nature. Believe me, some moments that is really tough! I want to be that little spoiled and whiny brat that lets loose! lol.

I've had a good time touching base with SP friends that I haven't heard from in a long while and even chatted with relatives today. They are dropping their vehicle off at our place tomorrow until Monday as they need a place to park it that is safe while they are away. We have the room, so why not.

Garry's birthday tomorrow, we are planning on celebrating on the weekend as we both have busy weeks. I have a new co-worker starting tomorrow...yay, some of the work load will be eased.

I'm working on my plan of learning to make small talk with strangers. I'm practicing by asking lots of questions from Kaeli and Matt and ensuring that I have their support during conversations. I'm claiming peace and confidence.

My positives:
Warmer temperatures today, the sun forgot to come out, but...

The sun'll come out
Tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar
That tomorrow
There'll be sun!
Just thinkin' about
Tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow
'Til there's none!
When I'm stuck with a day
That's gray,
And lonely,
I just stick out my chin
And grin,
And say,
Oh
The sun'll come out
Tomorrow
So ya gotta hang on
Tīll tomorrow
Come what may
Tomorrow!
Tomorrow!
I love ya
Tomorrow!
You're always
A day
A way!

Talking to Pat and Friday (relatives)
Garry might have his car sold!
Writing Wednesday assignment posted...check it out, have fun.
Shy and I did some Wii fit boxing, now that is a workout! (at least the way we did it! lol)
Life...it's just plain and simple wonderful.

Have a great evening,
Hugs,
Wanda

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GARRY!!! emoticon

Wanda, I so needed THAT song...during this long hard winter! Thanks for reminding me I just have to wait 24 hours...of which I sleep for 6 (I hope!).

Mindful blessings,
Mauri

    I needed to read your blog and hear that great song today. It is super cold here with lots of ice. But that too shall pass and we will be crying because of the heat...Not me though, I will just turn on the air conditioner. lol
Praise God for the change of seasons for they are all beautiful in their own way.
Have a great day...hope Garry's birthday was a happy one.
God bless.
Love and Hugs,
Helen

    Thank you for the serenade Ms. Orphan Annie! I would love to bet my bottom dollar and lose it! Guess I could just keep exercising and eating right. Have a good day tomorrow and Happy Birthday to Garry.
Have a good sleep.
Love,

Monday, Monday....

Monday, January 26, 2009

Another busy week ahead. We finally have a new co-worker starting in Wednesday, so that will help to easy some of the work load.

It's been bitterly cold outside, but according to the weather reports, we are supposed to get some nicer weather towards mid week. Lot's of sunshine...ahhhhh! love that sunshine. Especially as me desk is now by some big windows. Nothing like warm sun rays shining in the window to make you feel brighter!

My positives:

A more balanced day.
Spoke to my brother on the phone today. We've been missing each other lately, so was nice to finally connect.
Grocery store had some very nice looking apples on sale today...yay, fruit in the house again. We go through fruit in this house like water through a sieve.
I'm feeling more energized, probably due to the sunshine.
Just finished another good book "Breakfast at Sally's". It started off very well, but kinda of petered out towards the end. A good read anyway. It's an semi auto-biography.
Three more books were on hold for me today also...yay, reading for the weekend. Although two of them are knitting books.
Garry's birthday this Wednesday, we'll wait until the weekend though to celebrate.
Had a chance to talk with Kaeli about Matt's parents today, so now have some ideas for conversation (this week's challenge)
A new day tomorrow to embrace and fill with positives.
Friends, family and health and God who loves and blesses me.

Have a wonderful evening,
Hugs,
Wanda

    I can relate to the NEED for sunshine!! I am a sunshine person!! I have none today, so reading about yours will have to do, for now. I am doing good. Chatting on here a lot. I am, amazingly, sticking to my program. I think I have come far enough now that I have that NO TURNING BACK mind set!! That is a GOOD thing!! GOD BLESS. Enjoy the sun shine while you can. I am sure ours will return soon!! HUGS, LaceEjo11 emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wanda, you are so right about the sun shining in those windows! Think I shared with you that my office is in an old cable mill. I have two big windows...just haven't had much sun to shine through them!

I just finished P.D. James' new mystery - I love her use of words. Have started "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" and am loving it!! Have you read it? It's written as a series of letters among people...Guernsey being a city in the Channel Islands and it is post-WWII. Captivating.

Mindful reading,
Maurizia

Have you ever wondered why....

Sunday, January 25, 2009



I received this in an email today and thought it was too funny not to share. So now we know what happens to women under these circumstances! lol

Last week was a week filled with so many events that could have sent me off track big time. I'll thrilled to say that by practicing my motto for the year "living in awareness", I was able to recognize almost all of the events and ask for God's guidance in dealing with them.

I'm looking forward to this next busy week at work with a brighter more positive attitude.

My positives:
Serenity Sunday.
New members on the team that are excited about moving forward to a healthy self and lifestyle.
The members on the Positive bloggers team in general...you all are such a huge part of my life. Thank you.
Chores all done and a calm and peaceful day today.
Challenges posted.
God, who despite me getting in the way of my own self, loves me and never gives up on me.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Wanda good for you getting through your week and staying focused. I got a little off track, but will strive to do better this week. With such a positive attitude your week should be a great one. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Thanks for sharing what you got in your e-mail. I had fun with the Redneck Playstation, lol.

January 22

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Thoughtful Thursday...well I didn't really have the opportunity today to meet up or have conversations with many people. I was overly busy at my desk today trying to get orders in. So I guess my thoughtfulness will have to be the fact that I've worked hard for the past three days getting over 600 titles orders for the library. They are in the system and sent to the vendors. YAY! (Don't look at my in basket though, it's still full!)

My positives:

A warm office to work in and a big window to watch the blustery wind as it blew the snow around and around creating white out conditions at times.
Finally after 3 days, my orders to Midwest tapes are complete and sent.
Tomorrow is Friday!
Reading such wonderful posts and blogs after work today...I'm so proud of all of you.
Humor...my witches hat on Healthy choices at 5:30 am this morning turned into a pilgrim's hat by the time I got home from work! Thanks Nancy! Now that is great magic! lol
Some very funny emails in my mail box at home, they brightened my day considerably.
One load of laundry already in the washer...a head start on my weekend chores.
I took the opportunity to create a great day today...I didn't let life dictate my day.

Have a wonderful evening all.
Hugs,
Wanda

Send the snow to the ocean, please.

  I'm sure you were thoughtful without realizing it. Doing our job are thoughtful and you mentioned your job was experiencing some changes. You're pretty thoughtful to all of us and not just on Thursdays.
