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

Adjustments

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

If one wants to make forward movement in any area of one's life, there must be a willingness to make adjustments.

5. Thank you for the blessings of health, healing and determination. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you for the blessings of family and friends, without their support and encouragement I would not be where I am today. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

8. Thank you for all the reading material that comes across my path that helps me to learn and grow. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

April 7

Monday, April 07, 2014

Today I go after work for my final physio checkup to make sure that everything is still on track with my knee. I'm hoping that I will have gained even more ground in the bend, but at the least have remained the same. I still can not kneel on my knee but perhaps that will come as it continues to heal.

My Blessings and Thank yous:
1. Thank you for the great weekend. Nothing major happened, but we did manage to get some relaxing going on. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Such a blessing that our kids like to come and spend time with us. Shy and I had girl time Saturday and then she and Kyle came over for the evening. Last night Kaeli and Sylvain were here and cooked supper for us and Shy and Kyle joined us again. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Today I have my final physio check up after work. So grateful to have these milestones in my life so that I can measure my progress. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm grateful for the holiday time that Garry and I will have at the end of the month. We are finalizing our plans of what we are going to do. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Thank you that spring seems to be making an appearance finally. I'm looking forward to next month being able to get my garden in. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Thank you for the 1 pound elimination on the scales this morning. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm so blessed to have all the necessities in my life being met. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. We are blessed that our children enjoy spending time with us and that we always have a good time together. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. Thank you for the blessing of a body that is responding to being taken care of . Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. Thank you for the blessing of this new day. I'm excited to see what unfolds in the hours ahead. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a blessed and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    Sounds like you had a nice weekend. Hope your appointment has good results. We are having more spring like weather this week, getting rain later this afternoon, hoping it holds off till I get Joyce back home from her appointment in Lansing this morning. Have a marvelous Monday.

Hugs,
Shirl

    Wanda, good luck with your appointment today. With what you have accomplished post-surgery, my money's on having increased the bending angle.

A quiet Saturday, but I did work on Sunday morning. Started my 5% Spring Challenge on Saturday - and it was a challenge yesterday. Starting anew today.

Hugs & blessings.
