It's alomst Halloween

and I have yet to do any yardwork... Yikes, I must do that on Friday, as I'm off that day! Yes... a day off. Which I dearly need right now... I'm also working this weekend,  which should be fun.  Tomorrow at some point I'm going to visit my father's gravesite as it'll be a year since he passed away. I know hard to believe that it's been a year already.  There's nothing happening right now, but things are good. I need to clean the house and the yard ( as usual), and start thinking about Christmas! Tikes, I've written that down... Gifts to buy, cookies to bake and plans to be made!

Thursday Oct 23/14

Sad day in Canada, senseless acts of violence, a hometown hero splashed across the news, beautiful words written in memorial by many...  I have no other words to share, just say a prayer for those we love and have lost..

What's new in my world?

I worked some crazy hours last week... 21.5 @ my Pt job and my FT was 30 ( I had Monday off with pay)... I ended up making 320 in tips at my PT job... not bad for being the oldest server in the restaurant... and Yes, I can run circles around the younger ones... I did my recert for First Aid last week too... Which meant I was home three evenings last week...

I made it to the gym twice last week...  I was even called tiny by someone... Me.... tiny... It took a few minutes to sink in that yes, I am smaller now... Someone else commented on how much I eat... My response was yes, I need a lot of fuel to keep me going... Yes, I do eat tons of food, but very little junk/processed stuff... I spent 55.00 on groceries... lots of fruit and veggies... plus some chocolate and my favorite frozen pizza... which I only buy when it's less than 4.00...

Went to see Gone Girl with my mom and my cousin... Good movie, a little long in a few places... Loved the plot. Loved the popcorn even more!

I bought a smart tv last week. total cost 357.00... My poor old TV was dying... I know feel like I'm part of the 21st century... No longer do I have to switch cables in the back when I want to watch netflixs...

My date canceled twice last week... Sorry bud, but there won't be a third chance.. I don't think he's ready to date... LOL

Money wise things are good, I have a full fridge and pantry, the bills are paid and I still have some money in my wallet and the bank... The money in my wallet is going to be residing in an envelope at my mother's that for my vacation rental next summer...

In two weeks I'll be 45 years old... I'm feeling the best I've been in years...

I must be off and shower, do some housework and walk the dogs,  plus maybe do a bit of yard work... Happy Tuesday all!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is Thanksgiving here in Canada.

Some things that I am ever got grateful for:

Mother Nature... The tree's are spectacular right now. I love being able to walk in the woods daily and see what's new. I've even spotted bear poo... ( and yes, you know when you're a country girl when you can identify different types of poo) LOL

My family and friends, who hold me up, love me and laugh with me.  They also kick my butt when needed.

My health, physically, mentally and spiritual. I am strong, I listen when things don't feel right...  For me, my dog(s) help in these areas. They are the motivation that gets me going some days and keep me balanced.

Writing... I'm thankful that I'm able to write what I want, when I want and have no fears...

Being able to ask for help... This is a huge one for me. For many years, I couldn't admit to needing help for anything big or small. 2013 was the year I learned that it's a sign of strength to ask for help, not weakness... 

DD... I am so happy that I've had the opportunity to mother a child like her. She's funny, creative and marches to the beat of her own drum... Plus she's an amazing cook.... Love you bunches!

Lastly, I'm thankful for building my courage this year... I'm doing things outside my comfort zone and enjoying it...

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thursday Oct 9/14

It's been a week since I wrote, again... I can't seem to get back into writing daily, I think I'll shoot for twice a week.  SO what's new in my world? Still keeping busy, walking going to the gym. My house is sorta clean... It's never really clean when you have two dogs. LOL  My borrowed dog is staying the winter, she's good company for my boy...  Who's still hanging in, limping more and more every day, but still loving life and his walks.

I'm going on date number 2 on Monday... This time a walk and coffee date. My choice, as eating out all the time on dates is a little boring... Actually, I decided last time too... I'll keep you all updated...

Moneywise, things are the same. I did give a 50.00 donation to a coworker who lost her house in a fire this week. I can't imagine losing everything and she is a wonderful person. People at work having been given gifts of food, cash, toys for her kids and people are gathering dishes, bedding etc...

I left work early tonight, and now I'm off to soak in the tub and maybe watch some TV. Night all!

Oct 2/14

These past few days have flown by. Work is work, some people love to cause drama for no reason... I'm guessing that they're terribly unhappy with their own life and feel the need to create chaos where ever they go. I'm staying out of it. I love my little bubble of happiness, and work very hard at keeping my bubble happy...

My date on Saturday was very nice. He seems like a nice guy, we're going to meet up again next week for lunch ( two people with crazy schedules, it takes some work to figure things out...LOL). He paid for lunch, I left the tip...

I'm still walking the dogs, working out and keeping busy. I have a few projects that I want to start, and I have a goal of having my fall house cleaning completed by November 15. Wish me luck.

Moneywise, things are the same...

It's Saturday and it's going to be a great weekend!

I'm off for the weekend. It's going to be sunny and warm... I'm going out for lunch today... on  date... I'm planning on getting laundry and yard work done this weekend, along with walking the dogs. My DD celebrated her 22nd b-day yesterday... I can't believe that she's 22 already!

I've been keeping busy as always, but I do have lots of down time too, so no worries about me. I'll write on Sunday night. Hope you all have a great weekend!
