Some Interruptions Can Turn Out To Be The Best !

It has been said and proven time and time again that what you focus on is what you get. If you complain all of the time, you will run into more of the things you complain about. The same goes for good things like health, wealth and happiness. So spend some time in the morning imagining yourself achieving whatever it is that you currently desire. Focus is key in this exercise, so choose a quiet environment where you won’t be disturbed. If you’re having trouble focusing and continually find that your mind has wandered to something else, read about meditation in the following life tip. I am thinking this Life Secret & Tip by the author is pretty much along the line of "positive thinking" as well.  However I do recall a few times in my life focusing on a particular thing and it coming to pass.  Maybe I do not totally understand what the author is relaying, but that is "okay", as I think I got the part about the complaining all the time, and hope I, myself, do not constantly do this, contrary to the beliefs of others, no names to be mentioned at this time ! LOLWith Christmas being just around the corner, with my baking and presents all looked after, or so I hope they are, I thought it should be the time I tackle the task of some routine, or not so routine, cleaning chores yesterday.  When my plans do not go according as planned, I find I am starting to get much better at not being too disturbed by that happening.  For instance, when a trip downtown was apparently necessary before I got started on "my" plans, or a little someone needing let out when I have been right in the middle of something...... then there are the unexpected interruptions which put a smile on my face.  My Yesterday, just before the lunch hour, being one of these same unexpected moments I speak of ....

"My brother-in-law, Al, was up from Tara, around the Wiarton area, and just thought he would stop in to see Rob & I.  What a most pleasant surprise !  Coffee and goodies were served as we enjoyed our visit together.  As you can tell, proof I was making an attempt at cleaning is evidenced by the vacuum cleaner cord still laying out across the floor !  LOL."

Once Al had headed out for his home in Tara, lunch was made easy for Rob and I by just heating up Shepherd Pie leftovers from the day before.  After lunch was cleaned up from, I thought I had better be gathering up the recipes and such, I had laying across the loveseat beside where I usually sit with my laptop.

"I couldn't believe I had such a pile accumulated in the past couple of weeks.  This pile of recipes has some pretty good stuff in it, so I am thinking when I do get around to organizing it, there isn't going to be too much "tossed" from it."

Since we didn't do a Christmas tree this year, as I was thinking it would be too much with limited space in our living room area having little Missy Mercedes, I still found a spot to hang my gift I had  received the other day from my friend, Colleen.

"Isn't it "unique"?  "Side by Side or Far Apart, Friends are always in your Heart".  Each side of the saying, as my and Colleen's name inside a Heart.  My Heart was touched."

I did manage to get out this afternoon to go for a walk with my friend, Sharon, also making a find at a local Wiarton Store of a red Christmas tablecloth to have its festive colours in place for our Christmas Dinner.  Not getting home until at least late afternoon, I made myself a light lunch of eggs and toast, before I started getting at the spare bedroom.  I am please to say that other then all the Christmas presents still on the bed in there, I "got 'r done", so bring on the Company !!! not until Thursday night of course, as there is still more, and always, cleaning to be done !!!"This is my little "niche" in the spare bedroom where I have spent my most every morning since the Month of March 2011, and where I sit this very moment."

That was pretty much my Yesterday, with me feeling it was full and rewarding in itself by way of the people who were in it, to what accomplishments and dents I made in my cleaning "plans".I received the coolest email yesterday !  It totally amazes me how creative people out there are blessed with so much talent and knowledge ..... I can't wait until I get our grandson, Aiden, to try this out when he is here for Christmas. Very clever, very clever indeed.  Never mind our grandson, I am going to get Rob to try it out today, as it was fun when I did it.  Thanks to our Port Elgin friend, Bob, for sending me this one, as I so enjoyed doing it !I had also received a weird email yesterday from my Doctor's email address, with nothing of importance coming to mind in the link attached to it.  Should anyone have received such an email from my address, it was NOT sent by me, and is more likely SPAM (advertisers looking for a free ride via someone else's email contact list) which has attached itself to my email address.  I have done two complete full virus scans on my computer, and happy to say I have not came across any viruses, so I am hoping this stands true.  One of the unpleasantness of the Internet, as unfortunately there are many "evil" doers out in the World of computers too.Oh man, there is still the livingroom to be dusted and vacuumed, the bathroom to be gone over, the floors to be mopped, and goodness knows what else I could find that needs doing before the arrival of our "Rip-tail Snorters" this Thursday evening.  It will ALL be in need of redoing once they take their leave Saturday .... lol, but will have been all worth it having them here with us.I have reserved today for cleaning and tomorrow for preparing the Lasagna I am making for our Dinner on Friday.  Hopefully I will be somewhat organized by the time they get here.Best be checking in with my Wiarton Airport Weatherman guy to see if I will be going for a walk or not later on today.
Walking might be touch and go, according to this forecast.  I will have to see if there will be sometime late in the day if there should be a rain cloud taken up residence elsewhere before I go walking. Hopefully there will be at least a "skiff" of the white stuff here before Christmas ? 

I have actually been getting "butterflies" in my tummy, I am getting so excited for the arrival of Christmas.  I am not sure how my morning "blog" routine is going to work out for me, but I am sure such as it will be there will be something or other posted each day.  What or when, who knows until the time, as one can never be sure when they have a house full of Rip-tail Snorters !  
Lots to do, with hopefully people to see along the way, as I head towards a new day and adventure, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
