Today is a big day for my SIL. She is undergoing brain surgery this morning. Keeping her and my brother in my prayers and trusting that the Lord will see them through all of this safely and with peace.

My Blessings and Thank yous:
1. Thank you that my house is still standing after that horrendous wind storm that came through during the night. I have to go and hunt for our garbage cans before I leave for work this morning, but otherwise we see ok. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you for the rain that is steadily falling. It will be so nice to see things green up over the next few hours. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Thank you for Kim's surgery this morning and her safe outcome. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you for another busy day at work. I will likely being working some more overtime again today, but it's a short work week, so won't be so bad. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you for our IT guys at work that keep our computer systems working and get them fixed so promptly when things crash. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you that I found someone to cut my hair and I no longer look like a shaggy dog. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Although i did not have a great sleep last night, I am grateful that I have a warm place to sleep and a safe place to shelter. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for the blessing of friends and family that support and encourage me as well as each other. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for the blessing of this new day of life and all that holds for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the gift of focus that helps me to stay on track and to get what needs to be done done. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful day,
\Hugs,
Wanda

    Praying for a good recovery for Kim. Sounds like your night was sort of on the wild side, glad there was no serious damage from that wind. The rains do help wash away all that winter grime and refresh things. Have a good evening.

Hugs,
Shirl

It's blogging time again!

Monday, April 21, 2014

I have been lax with my blogging of late. Just haven't had a lot of stuff to share I guess. It's been a great long weekend. Although getting some "me" time has not turned out like I planned, I'm still enjoying my time off work.
Garry and Kaeli both arrived home safe and sound yesterday, one in the afternoon and one late last night. Both had a great time and that is what matters.

Today I am going to make the rounds of some hairdressing places to see if one of them can give me a hair cut today. My hairdresser has retired from hairdressing and I'm on the hunt once again for someone to cut my hair. I look like a shaggy dog and really need to get a cut.

My Blessings:
1. I am blessed to have my family all home safe and sound from their various adventures. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I am blessed to have today still off work. Shy and I hope to go do a wee bit of shopping later, depending on my hair cut situation. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I am blessed to have children that love and care about me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I am blessed to been able to enjoy some time of sitting outside on the deck in the sunshine. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I am blessed to have a short work week again this week and then holiday time starting next week. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm blessed to have healthy options to make. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm blessed to have a new knee that allows me to get about so much better than before. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I'm blessed to have a wonderful mother-in-law that sends goodies home with her son. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm blessed to have a new day before me to enjoy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm just plain very blessed. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful Easter Monday.
Hugs,
Wanda

    Wanda, compared to me, you're doing great with blogging. I've just worked some long days and just want to rest when I get home...and way too early starts!!

Good luck finding someone to cut your hair. Mine hairdresser retired when she had her baby and I've yet to find someone who knows how to cut my wild & crazy hair! The curls have no rhythm to them, and the underlayers are somewhat straight. I'm hopeful one of these days I will be pleasantly surprised!

Enjoy your day!

    Glad Garry and Kaeli made it back home ok and enjoyed their time away. Hope you find another hair dresser that you like. Yes, your down time is fast approaching. I will try and do what I can while you are away, my computer is doing a little better, it's hard now that I don't have the support I once had for my windows, maybe later I can upgrade. Enjoy your short work week. We have our resident potluck this evening, as our president is gone I am in charge.

Hugs,
Shirl

Half way through another month!

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

It's hard to believe that we are in the month April let alone half way through it! I look outside and the world is white once again. On the plus side...I don't think it is going to last long and I am not having to shovel this morning. It is supposed to warm up to plus 15 by the weekend. Woo Hoo.

I'm having to go in to work early today as well as I will likely need to stay late. My co-worker that usually helps with the unpacking and receiving of items is away this week and wouldn't you know it...we have had huge shipments everyday this week! I definitely won't be looking for things to do *grin*

My Blessings and Thank yous:
1. Thank you for the all the work that is arriving at work to keep me very busy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you that I have a meeting today with one of my vendors. I enjoy meeting with him as he is a delightful person. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Thank you for the blessing of a great night's sleep last night. I'm ready to face the day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you that Kismet is recovery well from her surgery and seems to have finally forgiven me for taking her to the vets. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you for the blessing of healing within my own self and that my knee is getting stronger and better. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you for the blessing of Priscilla sharing her amazing art work with us. A wonderfully talented artist. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you for the blessing of hearing from my brother last evening. It was good to hear from him and to catch up on news. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for my remote start in my car. Now that it is parked outside again, it is nice to be able to warm it up before having to slide on a cold frozen seat. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for Mauri and her beautiful spirit that brightens each of my days in so many ways. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the gift of friendship from Shirl. What a blessing to have found such a warm and loving friend. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Great list of gratitude, I recently did 28 days of gratitude from the book 'The Magic' by Rhonda Bryne and it was wonderful, still do my list everyday before I start my day.

    Glad you are back in Kismet's favor once again, they don't hold grudges for very long, they know we love them. Sounds like you have and are having a very busy week at work. Margaret is coming over tomorrow afternoon for coffee, maybe that'll help perk me up, she usually makes me laugh. We had a pretty nice day here got up in the middle 40's. Hard to believe this Sunday is Easter, this month is going by quick. It won't be long and you and Garry will be having some me time together, that'll be nice. Have a good evening.

Hugs,
Shirl

A busy weekend

Monday, April 14, 2014

Where did the weekend go?? It seems like it whizzed by so fast. We did have a busy weekend and fun filled weekend. As the saying goes "when you're having fun, time slips by".
Saturday saw me tackling some house hold chores, visiting with Shyra and Kaeli and then in the evening going out on a double date with Kaeli and her beau. We went out for a quick dinner and then to the theater to see a performance by Mump and Smoot. Sunday saw us having a much more leisurely day at home, but in the evening going out once again on a double date, but this time with Shy and Kyle. We felt very blessed to share in Kyle's birthday celebrations.
I was good both nights with my choices of dinner, so felt satisfied but not overly full. I had two very different salads which I greatly enjoyed. I love salads, just hate making them *grin*.

My Blessings and Thank yous:
1. Thank you for the wonderful entertainment on Saturday evening with dinner and performance and great company. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you for being able to share in the birthday celebrations for Kyle and again a great evening out and company. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Thank you for the determination to make healthy choices for my dinner on both evenings. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you that the snow we got on Friday night/Saturday morning has not stuck around. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you for the short work weeks for the next two weeks. We are closed this Friday for Good Friday and then I also have Easter Monday off. Two four day work weeks back to back and then I'm on holidays until May 9th. Woo Hoo! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you for the blessing of being able to take some holiday time for both Garry and I. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you for the blessing of being able to walk and get in my steps each day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Thank you for the blessings of modern science and how much they help not only myself but my family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for the gift of this new day and all the opportunities it holds for me to grow and learn. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the gift of friendship. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a blessed and wonderful Monday,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Wanda, sounds like a wonderful weekend! Salads always look so good to me but they are a no-no because of my allergy to raw greens.

I agree...where DID the weekend go? I worked on Saturday though at a Pink Ribbon Tea in Newport, RI. It was in an old hotel and was lovely to see everyone in their spring finery...including hats! Yesterday John & I went to the Roving Eye Film Festival at the university one town south of mine. All 4 movies (2 short films) had subject matter relating to the Holocaust. Not the easiest to sit through...both subject matter & my lower back pain. It was worth it for the last film, which won an Oscar here in the US for short documentary - and I understand why.

Enjoy your Monday! Hugs & love.

Yay it's Friday!

Friday, April 11, 2014

Yay, it's Friday and I have a great weekend ahead of me. Tomorrow night we are going out with the kids to see Mump and Smoot. Always such a fun time. On Sunday we celebrate Kyle's birthday and are going out for dinner.

Kismet did well during her surgery. She ended up having 4 teeth removed as they were fracturing below the gum line. Apparently she just happens to be a cat that this happens to! Go figure. On the plus side they were able to give her injections that are slow releasing for pain and antibiotics so I am not going to have to struggle to get meds into her. And the biggest bonus is that the final bill was almost $500 under the quote they gave me. Phewwww.

My Thank yous and blessings:
1. Thank you for the great care that Kismet received at the vet's office. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Thank you for hopefully being able to resolve an issue at work and that we are able to move forward. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I am so blessed to appreciate, understand and have guidance from above in my daily life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Thank you for a good night's sleep last night. Much more rested this morning. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you that we did not get the predicted snow last night! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you for a fun weekend ahead of us. It is fun to go out to entertainment with our kids. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you that our income tax returns have already arrived. Just in time for me to pay a vet bill *grin* thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I am so blessed to be able to trust that our needs will be met and that I don't have to worry about them, just need to take them to the Lord. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for the blessings of friends and family. Without them my life would be very barren. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the blessing of this new day and all that it has in store for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful Friday.
hugs,
Wanda
