Tuesday's blog

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

Well my day started off shakey for some reason. I wasn't too sure if I was going to make it into to work or not. I woke up at my usual time...accomplished my exercises and had my usual serving of yogurt. Drank my water and headed to the computer to log on to SP. About 5 minutes into my computer time...I started to feel very nauseous. Ended up with the shakes and a broke out in a cold sweat. Needless to say the nausea led me to the bathroom. I went did feel some what better after my visit although still a bit of a headache. Decided as the nausea was not an issue anymore to head to work and see how the day progressed. I'm glad that I did go in as a couple of issues arose that needed to be dealt with, but by 10:30 am my head was telling me that by continuing to look at a computer screen was not going to be a wise choice. I headed home and debated with myself about lying down for a nap or sitting out in the sun on the back deck. The deck won for about an hour and then I headed in for a nap. I slept for a couple of hours and now the headache is gone and I'm feeling much better. Strange! Not sure what was going on...but I did need to listen to what my body was telling me.

My Positives:
Despite feeling not up to par this morning...I did go to work for 4.5 hours and was able to deal with a couple of crisis issues at work and then come home.
Wonderful sun time and nap time.
Feeling great now!
Payday tomorrow! woo hoo....thank you Lord for money that continues to flow in.
Plans in place for a nice light supper.
A job that enables me to leave when necessary.
God who blesses this family with so much.

Thank you for stopping by...hope that your day was wonderful and that you accomplished all that you set out to do.

Hugs,
Wanda

    I think this time of year the weather affects us a lot, sorry your day didn't have such a great start, but glad it got better as the day went on. I did much, much better with the weekly challenge today, and that made me feel good. GS slept a lot and when he wasn't sleeping he was eating, I think by the time mom picked him up he was feeling ok. Tomorrow I am picking up my sis and going to meet her daughter, our brother and his wife at a restaurant, so tomorrow is all play day for me. Hope your day is a good one tomorrow.

Hugs,
Shirl

Monday's blog

Monday, September 14, 2009

It's been a busy day.

Dealt with the two cats having a spat at 5:30 morning. For some reason CJ has decided that he is a bully and out of no where will chase and harass Kismet. He chased her up stairs this morning and had her cornered. As he weight at least twice as much as Kismet, it's really not a fair disagreement. On the other hand, Kismet is such a "hissypants" any time he comes within three feet of her...so one is as bad as the other. Siggggghhhhh!

Lots of orders today at work, got most of them input and ready to send tomorrow. Hopefully there will be more orders coming down as it has been very sporadic this summer.

My positives:

It's big pick-up item tomorrow...which means that we can get rid of a couple of items that need to go to the dump. The county picks up things twice a year. It's such a great way of helping out those people that would have to rent a truck or have trouble disposing of large items. We have a falling apart old 9 drawer dresser and a queen size box spring.
A beautiful sunny day again today.
I've met my challenges from Positive Bloggers...woo hoo!


Have a great evening and if you haven't done your challenges....what's stopping you! lol

Hugs,
Wanda

    Wanda, hahahahahahaha on CJ & Kismet! Sounds like my apt. everyday! Gracie & Katie circle their "wagons." Gracie begins to bathe Katie, who appears to be enjoying it...and then the race is on! It's only when I hear furniture move that I get concerned! My bathroom is off the kitchen and one eve when I got home from work, the kitchen chair - that had been tucked under the table - was sitting in the bathroom! I think I'd rather not know HOW that happened! Hahahahaha...

Hugs!

    Wanda, I love that "hissypants" that made me laugh. Well I didn't get all the challenges done for today, but did get some done, will try and do it better tomorrow, it's a great one for this week, one I needed. Have a great Tuesday, I am going to be babysitting my 11 yr. old GS, he's not feeling well enough to go to daycare and school.

Hugs

    I'm just waiting on that final calorie total! Guess it will keep until after my fabulous 6:30 date at Open House. I love large trash day! I miss it most of the time, though. I moved to town, but don't take the paper. Nice chatting with you. Have an awesome evening. I look forward to your week's worth of basic blogging!
Love,
Nancy

Sunday Sept 13 blog

Monday, September 14, 2009

Okay...so I am doing this blog early Monday Morning...but I will also do another one this evening to account for the daily blog in the weekly challenge. You all have permission to do likewise as I did NOT get the weekly challenge posted until this morning. Which in itself is not fair as we needed to do something for Sunday! My apologies.

Yesterday, was a lazy day between lots of work. I set myself a goal of accomplishing some house hold chores as well as time to relax. I worked for an hour and then I "played" for an hour. It was a strange day and a strange way of doing things...but it worked! All the chores got done and I felt like I had relaxed also.

My positives:

I'm so blessed to have a husband who despite not having the skills for some of the handyman projects I plan...is willing to tackle them and learn. We actually have done a lot of learning of these skills together.
A gorgeous sunny day...yay...summer is still here.
Talked to my eldest on the phone last night. Sure do miss having her at home or at least close by.
I've got my goals in place for this week and I'm doing them! No more slacking off.
God and my guides who love and protect my family and friends.

Thanks for stopping by, I'll be doing another blog later today to account for Monday! lol

Hugs,
Wanda

    I didn't blog either, so Wanda and Mauri don't feel bad. Wanda I may have to try that work and hour play an hour instead of full steam ahead thinking I'll get it all done if I just work, work, work. Sunday was a busy day, church in the morning, then GD's birthday celebration, she's 14, then off to visit a friend and celebrate her belated birthday, all in all it was a very nice day. Now we are into another week, let's make it a good one.

Hugs,
Shirl

One more project down!

Friday, September 11, 2009

One more of the many projects going on in our house has been completed!
At the end of this month...my new kitchen and flooring is on the agenda. I will be so glad when all the renos are done.

Fireplace before:




The after results. Even if I say so myself...Garry did a pretty good job for someone who hasn't had a whole lot of experience in the woodworking department!
evening:

daylight:


What a huge difference it makes in the family room. It's so inviting now to sit in. With the change of paint color and the "new" fireplace, even Garry is spending more of his evenings sitting in the family room instead of heading up to the bedroom to lie down and watch tv!

My positives:
A husband who although he has no clue where to start and what to do on the projects that I dream up...is very willing to tackle them.
Owning our own home so that I have the freedom to personalize and make it how I would like it.
God, who blesses us with the help and information we need when we need it and who blesses us with the finances to accomplish what we have set out to do.

Thank you for stopping by to view my "new" fireplace.

Have an awesome evening and weekend.

Hugs,
Wanda

    very nice!

It is a blessing to have your own home and as much work as it is, to be able to do the renovations yourself.

looking forward to seeing more.

    Oh, Wanda, it's BEAUTIFUL!!! I love that fireplace reno. How comforting that room seems! I have 3 fireplaces in my apt. but none are working ones because of the age of the house & the cost to upgrade them...One in the kitchen (in front of which sits my stove and IN which the cats hide from me; one in the spare bedroom that serves as a dresser/chifferobe room...since the other 2 bedrooms are small...and one in my living room...I just love having them.

Enjoy, my friend! Kudos to Gerry!!! Great job!

Hugs!

  Congratulations on those accomplishment. Your fireplace looks really nice. We're planning some renovations but not until after the first of the year. I am and I'm not looking forward to getting those projects underway. Since you have so much experience you can coordinate ours. LOL Just kidding.

You are making so much headway in all areas of your life.

Thursday, September 10, 2009

What a lovely surprise we had yesterday. Garry's sister surprised us with a visit. She happened to be spending the day working in Edmonton for her company and was able to come over for supper and the evening. We had a lovely visit and were able to enjoy a BBQ out on the deck as the weather was warm enough to sit out there for the evening.
Shyra's friend joined us also, as they had planned on going out for the evening after supper. We had a lovely impromtu meal. I was able to put together a greek salad, a pasta salad and a baking dish filled with carrots, potatoes, peas and baby corn, as well as Garry cooked up some skewers of pork on the BBQ.

Today promises to be another lovely day...our summer appears to not be quite finished as yet. YAY! This weekend is supposed to be in the high 20's all weekend. I love it! I am just not looking forward to those cold snowy winter months. lol

My Blessings:
I woke up this morning.
Fern was able to stop by for a visit....first time she has been to see us in almost 8 years!
It promises to be a lovely warm day.
Telephone repair man is supposed to show up today after I get home from work. Once again, we have no phone service....hopefully this time they can figure out why we keep losing our service. We are just blessed that Garry has a cell phone and we can still be reached.
God, who continues to love, support and guide us in our every day experiences.


Have a wonderful day.

Hugs,
Wanda

    You did good, putting together a nice healthy meal on short notice, it's nice you were able to eat and visit with Gary's sister, 8 yrs. is a long time between visits. I usually get with my brotherat least once a year, hopefully when my sis and her daughter get back from their trip to Kentucky we'll all be able to get together. It turned into a rather muggy day today, but not complaining, as fall is fast approaching and the cooler weather. Hope you had a good day at work and get your phone problem taken care of.

Hugs,
Shirl

    Good Morning my friend...
How wonderful that you had such a nice evening. Those surprise visits are so great... Especially when you like the people surprising you. hee hee
Sounds like you pulled together a nice healthy meal for all as well... WTG!
Now about that weather... I know that your 20 is not in degrees... so hope you enjoy it while it last...

Since I haven't done a blog in ages... I'll let you know that not much has changed around here... BIL is home from a 2 weeks stay at the hospital and awaiting his next appt which is on the 17 of Sept. Not sure there is much they can do for him at this point. He is in a lot of pain.
As for me... I've finally turned myself around AGAIN and have been able to get back to healthier eating. Managing all the stress is a full time job... But the positive is I'm doing it THIS WEEK! LOL

Thanks for continuing to share your positives and leading the way for all of us.

((BIG HUGS)))

Kathy
