A Busy Productive Day With Lots Of Rewards !

This one is for you workaholics out there. Yes, work is very important and productive but you need to take some time to chill out everyday or you are going to burn out faster than a candle with no oxygen. Additionally, you need to reward yourself for a job well done. What’s the use of doing all of that work if you can’t have a little fun from time to time anyways?This Life Secret & Tip sounds exactly how my Yesterday went with the rewards arriving throughout .... lots of "fun" was had at the end."The day began in the glory of the Sun with it not lasting the whole of the day."

It carried on with Rob and I working as a team getting floors vacuumed and washed, a Venison Roast with veggies into the Slow Cooker, and a trip downtown to pickup those few things that had been forgotten on the last trip to the store.
 "I am thinking for the 22nd of December, our local Foodland store is getting to be a little bit like the Walmart photo sagas?"

We had arrived back home and pulled into our driveway as our Mail Lady was depositing mail into our Mailbox.

"This is the kind of bill I wish I was receiving in my mail ALL the time !"

"I had also received this beautiful book, I had won on a draw by commenting on the We Are Pet Nation's website, for their weekly Book Draw.  Nice !"

"All the ingredients were gathered together, with the spinach thawing, making sure they were all ready for when Holly arrived to teach her how to make a Classic Spinach Dip."

"Then onto the preparation of two Lasagna for Friday's Dinner."

"After the Crabby Cabbie had left for work, somebody took a "relaxing" break, while I sat for a bit enjoying a coffee before I headed out for a walk with my friend, Sharon."

"Through Wiarton's Bluewater Park, looking out towards this day's calm over Colpoy's Bay."

"Along the "boardwalk", should this couple not be gone South by now?"

"Arriving back home after a most "relaxing" walk, a surprise was at our stair top.  I had thought Rob had maybe surprised me with an unexpected Christmas gift, only to read the tag to find out if was from our Mechanic and his wife !  I am gratified to be so kindly thought of to have received such a "astounding" gift !  Wow the totally unexpected gesture, along with an amazing kindness attached.  One of my favorites, an "Angel Bear"."

 "Once I settled from the excitement of receiving such a thoughtful amazing gift, I got back to business at hand by getting an Apple Pie prepared and baked for after our Supper."

"The moment finally arrived when my "Crew" all showed up, with Mercedes welcoming them all in, one by one."

"Holly's *smile* was a good indication that she was happy to be here!"

"Holly even came bearing gifts of Holiday Pretzel Treats, with Mint M & M centers."

After a supper of Venison Roast and dessert of still warm Apple Pie, we all had some "down time" before it was "shut eye" time.

"Mercedes & Connor right into the Artwork."

"Aiden layed all back "relaxed" and "chilling" out."

"Here is my boy, Paul, with his famous "knock it off with the camera, Mom" look."

Not long after this, we all called it a night.  A day full of productive accomplishments, along with many unexpected and expected rewards.  The best of the best kind of day my Yesterday was !I am thinking there might be some "snow" for Christmas, as snowing it was around 5 am, when little Missy Mercedes and I were out this morning.  I will check in with the Wiarton Airport Weatherman to see what he has to say about the "snow" situation.

A few flurries ending near noon then a mix of sun and cloud. Local amount 2 to 4 cm. Wind northwest 20 km/h becoming light this morning. Temperature steady near minus 7.


Mainly cloudy. 30 percent chance of flurries late this evening and overnight. Temperature steady near minus 7.

Not the usual picture of the weather forecast, as I am not in my usual "blog spot" this morning, as my "spot" has been otherwise occupied, by the "Rip-tail Snorters".  There it is though, in black and white, "flurries" maybe to stay for Christmas ...... "Do You Hear What I Hear?"Lot of plans and fun hopefully in my day ahead, with a new adventure I am looking forward to embracing, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
