Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving Canadian friends and neighbours!

I have had more sleep than I've had in a long while and my energy levels are through the roof So be warned LOL

I crawled into bed at 6 pm watched a bit of TV and was asleep within the hour. Walt, on the other hand, stayed up until his usual 10 o'clock and looked after the animals and let me sleep. The first I woke up was 3 am and only because there were puppies needing out. I went right back to bed, fell asleep again and slept right through until 7!

Since getting up, I have cinnamon buns rising, pumpkin pie mixed up, set in the fridge, and the beef roast in the slow cooker and have been down to put my vote in for the election of a new prime minister. I won't tell you which way I voted only that it wasn't for the present PM!

Now I'm off to write and post. Catch ya on the flip!

It's been a gorgeous day here in Coronation today. So we did a combination of indoor/outdoor and got a little accomplished with both. House is about 1/2 cleaned and laundry is done. The bird feeders got refilled, added a suet cage and a few things got put away for the winter months.
I also worked on my website. All in all pleased with my day.

It was so relaxing yesterday after she left at 10 am to be at an all-day meeting with AWNA It's our Newspaper Association.
It makes for a far more productive day because for one she's not listening in on your phone conversations trying to tell you what to say to the client! It's RUDE for one and another the client hearing her makes him/her think I must be incompetent. It gets both frustrating and embarrassing!

I am so working on a home-based business so that should I still have a job within the next year, year and a half and sets me up financially, I can tell her "take this job and shove it"!


We've had our heat on and off for a better part of a week now. With temperatures of -13 yesterday...yeah makes it just a little nippy LOL

How is everybody else doing otherwise?

As much as I'd LOVE to call in sick I can't afford to.

I've still taken all my Vitavegivitmins this morning just as a precaution. Otherwise feeling almost back to my 100%.

Good morning!
And, we're headed into another work week. I'm not sure whether I'm happy with that or not LOL. None the less, I am thankful that this coming weekend is a long weekend! I'll need to finalize my winterizing Walt has the weekend free of being on call so we can tackle it together!

Too bad you had to spend a day off work fighting this cold thing you have. I hope you were able to rest and truly conquer it today.
Or just call in sick tomorrow.

Yes, well when you step outside and can see your breath in the morings, that's cold! So, I've been turning on the furnace just long enough to take the chill off in the mornings. It doesn't take much.
After everything I accomplished yesterday this morning, I woke up fighting what I'd been fighting all week so out came the Vitavegivegamin as Lucille would call it, and a hot cup of coffee and bone broth.

We've had lows in the 40's, but we've not yet turned on the furnace. We just add another blanket. After the hot/humid summer, we're enjoying the cooler temps. Can always shut more windows or put on more blankets. Not yet ready for furnace.

Hope the team has a great weekend.

OK, I'm here. Just getting to it now because my early morning concentrations have been on Saturday chores. Up since 4:15, laundry is washed and dried. Needs folding and put away yet. Bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and livingroom have had their dustings, sweeping and scrubbing and one load of dishes through the dishwasher that need putting away.

So now, it's to the computer, catching up on e-mails, posting and writing! At least until the stores open. Then I need to make my run to Home hardware for my insulations and tapes to seal up the house for the winter months.

It's been cold enough here to have the furnace on already as well. We've had it running most of the week and then temperatures warmed up again and I shut it down. Now, this morning yesterday's birthday boy is cold even with his winters on. So, I gave him his fur-lined hoodie. Still cold! So I turned the furnace up just enough to take the chill off the house. And me, I'm still not dressed yet. In nightie and housecoat and not cold! Hmmm And no, it's not hot flashes LOL

And yes, I've done just that. After fighting off cold and flu all week I woke up feeling as right as rain this morning. Between the high doses of vitamin C, 2000mg, B 6 and 12, D 3, my regular multi-vitamin, and my bone broth, yeah I kicked it to the curb!

Ok off again for the time being. TTFN

Thanks, girl!

IF she don't I'll be setting her back a peg or two again.
I'm so fighting off a cold/flu this week. I wake up feeling achy, stuffy and as though I'm running a low-grade fever. I grab my 2000mg of vitamin C, my bone broth with turmeric and ginger in my coffee a couple of extra-strength cough drops and it all goes away. The achy feeling, the stuffiness, and fever. I'm just finishing my coffee now. LOL

Success to you on your blog.
I do hope your boss remembers this time; seems like she forgets or "remembers the past" and then you have to remind her again--sure that gets old.

I wondered where you'd gotten to. I was beginning to get a little concerned. So, I'm glad to see you back and that you're working on you.

Truth be told RETIREE, just trying to stay on top of things right now takes everything I've got. Work has been h***ish with my boss as of late. She tore a strip off of me last week and I stood up to her and tore one off of her. I've never seen her go so red! From the chest up a deep crimson! I'd had enough. Period. She'd made three major errors with three client sales this past year, tried to revamp but lost them anyway and thought she'd try pinning the blame on me. I wasn't having any of it. We got it straightened out but not before I took her by memory's hand and walked her through the 9 years of this "bulldust" and told her it's time you leave the past where it belongs, in the past.
She took it off of me, backed off and admitted and owned her errors. We're not only back on level ground but I very subtly put her in her place. No more micro-managing.
I have enough on my plate. We have a 2nd sales person but she doesn't get the job description and falls short every week. So I might as well be the only sales rep because I've been told to pick up the slack where she is lacking. This on top of my own responsibility, clients and sales!

And now in trying to eventually get out of that job and leave I've started my own home-based business. It's a simple blogging site I called it Taking Off the Blinders. It's all about reclaiming your health and losing weight and going about it the right way with the right mindset, patience, determination, and motivation using all the right tools. That's pretty much it in a nutshell.

NOMORESTALLING, you really make me feel guilty. You are always so busy and productive. I've been in a slump and needed to get myself out of it, so I took some time to do that. And then I had oral surgery--needed to be done and glad I did it but needed to take it easy.

Hope you are feeling better.




(What business are you starting or did you already cover that while I was gone? How's the writing coming along?)

I woke up feeling rather tough this morning but I've managed to kick it to the curb. Being out in that damp weather yesterday is what did it. We have a light dusting of snow on the ground here this morning. It won't be staying. It's already melting.

Just having a hot cup of coffee before getting started here. I do have a few things I had to leave undone because of being out of town yesterday. It won't take me long to catch up.

Election years not so keen on them. With working for a newspaper I have to bug them for their advertising. emoticon

I've been up since four in order to take care of everything I wanted and needed to before having to leave for the city. So now three loads of laundry washed, dried, folded put away, The slow cooker is simmering homemade chilli for dinner and i have lunch in the fridge for Walt. Kitchen, bathroom and laundry room are cleaned. The fridge even got a go over so that it's ready, organized for restocking. Now while I wait to leave I will be working on my business and answering e-mails.

Have a great day and stay gold everyone!

High Gang!
I got so much done today both inside and outside!

I had been up since 4:45 and had almost the entire house cleaned and laundry done before Walt decided to show himself at 7:30.
I was working on my blog waiting for him to put the battery back into my car. It completely died yesterday so we had put it on the charger overnight. Once that was restored I stepped out the door and you could have blown me over with a feather! There in the front corner was the Yard of the Week sign!
It hadn't been there the night before or even this morning when I stepped out the door to feed my kitties! It hadn't even been there before Walt put the battery back in my car!
Talk about a shock! My yard is unfinished to what I wanted to have done this weekend LOL
Oh, they're sneaky! LOL
It'll be here for the entire week!


I got busy and did my Saturday yard work The grasses needed cutting the flowerbeds needed weeding. I had wanted to get the front gate painted and rehung and did. The new trees out front got their posts to keep them straight over winter.

I made lazy-boy cabbage rolse for dinner and boy were they good. Now I'm going to call it a day and join that man of mine to watch the newest Men In Black Movie on Pay-Per-View!

We are already having cooler temperatures Mind you we didn't really have the HOT summers we usually do.

So far so good. I'm really coming along with this website I'm creating. Now that I've worked out a lot of the kinks I was having I'm actually having fun with it!

I am very tired today though. Doing a bit of blogging and having something called food. But I will be calling it a day here shortly.

Oh, that Walt! What a great guy, and what a great gift! You can enjoy that until the snow flies! How cool.

Sorry about your fall. And you've probaby come in that way a million--maybe two million--times but this one was different. Hope you didn't have eggs in the grocery bag you were carrying. LOL. Hope the sprain/strain-whatever you did--isn't too bad. Ice it, take some aspirin-type pills and get a good night's sleep.

Yeah, well, when you work full time you do what you can when you can So having 3 days instead of 2 gives me that time.
I've made my grocery/Misc run to Stettler and got back at noon, grabbed some lunch and got some more things done. I tripped coming from the porch into the main house while carrying in the groceries, broke my fall with my right hand and now my wrist and shoulder are paining So I've probably wrenched them.
I'll put heat and then ice on it later.

Walter has been busy while I was gone.
Look what I'm getting! Only, instead of the bench seat, I have 2 separate canvas hammock swings to hang.


And how far he's gotten before the rain!

Oh, no. "Winterizing" is way too soon for me! We're to have mid-70's/low 80's this weekend. That's nice enough to enjoy the outside--wallk outside, sit on the deck/porch, cookout..... Too early for me to do wintering. Hoping we have some nice fall weather to continue being outside.
Be careful, NOMORESTALLING, no injuries!

It definitely helps to have a routine.

This weekend begins the winterizing. Putting away my gardens, putting up the insulation around the doors and windows etc. That should take two full days and that's on top of my regular weekend cleaning and laundry. So busy again!

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

I'm tired just reading of your day! I try doing a floor a day--we have a 3-story house, so with a laundry day, grocery day, I can go over the house each week. Somedays I need to spend more than my allotted time on a particular floor--the moving of furniture to vaccum slows me down. Some weeks I have extra laundry--throw rugs or curtains. But, I'd say this rotation works for me.

Always glad when Friday comes because that means I've finished the rotation and have the weekend to enjoy.

OMG have I put in a day!
I actually didn't start my day until 8 this morning! But once I did I've been going non-stop. The back entrance and laundry room got an overhaul and the laundry started! As did the kitchen and bathroom. The ceiling fans even got cleaned and boy did they need it! I have one last load of laundry to fold and put away and 2 pair of pants to hem and then I am DONE. And I do mean done! I burned up the calories and put in over 10,000 steps today! I need supper and a hot shower and Advil!! My back is screaming and my legs are aching.

My me time is coming. I have a spa and hair appointment booked for the 24th of Sept. I'm looking like and feeling like the shaggy dee aye! LOL

Today I have managed to totally revamp my kitchen and laundry room and do my laundry.
it is already feeling very much like Autumn and with next weekend being labour day long weekend I will be starting my winterizing now; putting away my ornaments, preparing m flowerbeds, doing my fall planting and of course my fall cleaning.

Autumn is my favourite season. The air itself gives me even more energy.

Well, Wlat had his annual Finally got him to the Dr. after 4 years! Being as he is a smoker too I always get them to do a THOROUGH check of his respiratory. So, far so goo., everything is still clear of the big C. He does have his issues of course. two of the vertebrae have deteriorated cartilage So I'm working with keeping him pain-free to get him through the next year and a half before retirement.
Otherwise, the bum is in perfect health!

Sounds very busy!
I spent time on me today. I had a hair appointment--just a trim, I delivered some payments, I read, and spent time looking at a couple of stores--no purchases. Yet. I still did some laundry and tidying at home. Our neighbor knows the people interested in our house and told my husband today that they are still very interested. They went off to talk to their bank but I would have thought by now that conversation would have occurred. I'll be interested to see what value an appraiser turns in.

Had me a beautiful relaxing day. Not productive in the sense of ads coming in but I sent out the next 2 promotions and did a major re-organization of file folders on my desktop!

Working on the Cancer preventions week and obtaining sponsors to help meet our goal of 2500.00 to donate to the Terry Fox Foundation. The other was our Business profile magazine. E-mailed out all of last year's participants for review and changes Tomorrow I'l e-mail out this year's promotion in hopes of getting new submissions. So it was still busy.

Honey, she IS the Ownership! That's why it's so much more FRUSTRATING!

I had a rare present brought to me this morning. I could hear one of my male cats meowing outside the back door but it was muted. So, I'm thinking why? I opened the door and he drops it in front of me. Right proud of himself as well! A mouse!

I'm shaking my head at him. If there is one thing I haven't had in this house for years it's mice. You're not going to be bringing them into the house now Mr. Bagera! You take him right back out that door.
He picked it up and trotted away with it. OIY! LOL

She's worse than daft. Does ownership not know she's costing them?

Am finally feeling back on track. We spent 2 weeks in Michigan with family, and while I may have encouraged some to join SparkPeople, I kind of "lost my way." Then, we had a spate of house showings, so spent time cleaning/tidying/laundring/and getting ready for them; did, in fact, have a group return. So now we're waiting for them to talk to their bank and see what happens. I do the housework each day and I get in my exercising and my addressing my journey. Feeling much better, except, of course, for the waiting on them............

It's been a day.
She just doesn't know when to quit. SIIIIIIGGGHHH.
Today, she was billing out the paper and she came across the two full pages I had booked They were not a center spread; double-truck but two separate pages but from the same client so they had asked that they are displayed side by side. So I followed their request and billed them for 2 separate pages at 1425.00/ea and fully explained it to her. She understood. But NOOOOO she wants to bill them 2919.00 for a double-truck 69$ more.
I said, no Joyce I explained this to you and you said you understood. They were NOT quoted the cost of a double-truck They were quoted the cost of a single full-page colour and billed accordingly.
Well, why have they been given a 10% discount?
I said look at your rate sheet and dimension sheet. You set it up that way as the regular cost this year.
"That was meant for Local only."
Yes and Local is the 92 communities we serve This client is in Castor."
She just couldn't get it through her head!
Nope, I was supposed to have charged them the regular price.
That is the regular price you set up this year!
So, she goes back and changes the prices on the rate sheet and dimension sheet to the old prices.
And OF COURSE, I'm the one at fault. It's ALWAYS the sales person's fault. I'm supposed to think on my feet. I don't give them the discount price unless they ask if we have discounts.
AAAAAAARRRRRGH! She set the prices, gave me the tools and said go forth!
So, now with the higher prices in place again, guess what? She's NOT going to get the full page coloured ads I've been getting for her. And, now she's biting the hand that feeds her!
Talk about DAFT!

I agree with you hon! We need to FIRE her A**! And if there was a way to do just that and keep my job, believe me, I'd find a way!

After 3 today I'll have a breather for a week again and the come Sept 4 she is gone for the month! I actually broke out in cold sores yesterday from the stress she caused me. Come break time I was asked Are you coming for a break, come for a break Gaylee. I said I did, I went over to the drug store for some Abreva. Dead silence. She knew why I wasn't breaking with them/
Oh yeah and then she was looking for the pkges that some of our clients buy to save money but participate in the annual promotions. She couldn't find them. So I was asked, "Do you have them?" Do you know what my response was? "Nope, Joyce had them last and whatever she did with them is where she'll find them. And trust me it wasn't said without an undertone. Actually, there was a snap in my voice.
One thing about her when she knows she's upset me and she's in the wrong she never confronts me. She may or may not come and apologize later but she never confronts me. She always backs down.

LOL Honey It's called pushing through. Yesterday, I woke up feeling like something the cat dragged in. But I took my apple cider vinegar water, my Hemp oil, had a cup of java with my bone broth had a protein smoothie for breakfast loaded with all the high antioxidant fruits and greens and I was as right as rain in short order! And it was all gung ho after that! LOL

I slept like a rock last night so today I'll do all of that again only I'm not feeling all dragged out to start the day today.
I want to finish sorting the few boxes I have left and organize my filing cabinet yet and if the weather is favorable this afternoon, stain my arch. Right now because it's early enough I'm having my Tim's dark roast and doing a bit of writing.

ElFisher,
Financially it should work alright. All you are doing is making simple changes in your grocery shopping and buying more fruits and vegetables.

My plans were kiboshed today because of rain. I had wanted to stain the new arch. So instead I tore apart the spare room and scrubbed it from top to bottom, did serious pitch and toss and set up my writing room! I still have boxes to sort through and organize my filing cabinet but it's now after 4 pm and I've been going since 5 am so calling it a day. At least with the cleaning. I'm going to make supper and then do some writing!

ELFISHER That isn't good news but as they say "doctor knows best?"

What diet are you using to lose weight? If it isn't Dr Fuhrman will you give his Nutritarian an try? Specifically his first six weeks.
I'm about to start that for myself. Will you do it with me?
I picked up everything I need before coming home from work yesterday. This morning I am creating my huge bowl of salad greens and beans for the day. G-BOMBS
Here is the lnk to his website. And if you look across the very bottom of his home page I have all but one or two of the books.
The two most prevalent are his Eat To Live and the Eat To Live Recipe book.
Thos first 6 weeks if you follow them to the letter you will lose up to 20 lbs. and that is without exercising.

For me i am very active on weekends but more inactive during the week because I have a desk job. So yes, I am going to revisit his first six weeks starting today.

I was just told by my doctor that I can no longer walk for exercise. This was about all I had left because it's been some time since I was able to do a regular workout due to my back and hips. If I can't exercise I cannot lose weight. The doctor just looked at me and said I was damned if I do and damned if I don't. I really want to keep pushing even if I have to sit down every 4 or 5 minutes on my rollator. She said absolutely not! So you can see I'm in a bit of a funk right now. She's ordered me to have PT at home and I must limit myself to PT only.

Thought about shields today. Very busy day and sometimes jobs weren't getting done in the time frame to allow jobs to flow from one to another. Frustrating and distracting. So, thought about a shield and how to use it to help me settle and calm. Took a while and I don't know if I found a shield or if thinking/working on that took me away from the frustration/distraction and used the time between jobs so then I was ready for the next task. Will keep working on this because I think it can be helpful and useful.

My shield in this case or part of my shield is my manager She knows what I'm doing now. Her response was Boss doesn't care as long as we get the ads because it's what pays for the news with a non-subscription newspaper.
And I am all calm again. Just knowing those clients already know me from past collaborations and my approach helps. I've already secured 3-4 ads from them that they had declined her for. I think a part of her issue is she doesn't know how to close.

A very good nights sleep last night Weird dreams out of my past but slept none the less. Two more sleeps and I can be out working in my yards again depending on the weather of course. But I want to stain that new archway and paint the gate. It needs a face-lift.

That co-worker would cause frustration. Remember to shield yourself while picking up her slack; sounds like that could make you more angry and frustrated.

Never gave that much thought, to be honest with you. I most definitely could.

I don't know what's going on with me today I am so easily agitated. I just feel so angry inside. Don't even know where it's coming from. I know I'm so totally frustrated with my other salesperson She's been with us for over a year and still continuously drops the ball and I'm so sick of it. So I'm picking up the gauntlet. She should be bringing in new business on top of our regulars. She doesn't even bring in business from our regulars she is so focused on monthly promotions she's not doing her weekly promotions. She's costing us money. So I've had it! Right up to my eyeballs with her. No more! I'm going to be picking up those clients that she keeps missing, doesn't even contact!

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

This is lovely and you get a feeling of accomplishment out of it all. In my book, they call that a "twofer". Cheers!!

Good morning everyone! And of course, it's Hi Ho, Hi Ho off to work we go this morning.

Here's what was accomplished over the weekend!



Plus all the grass cutting, trimming and weeding. And another 1000 some words added to my book!

Doc is right hon. What I do when it hits me as rarely as that is I hit the bed with as many blankets as I can bundle up in and sweat it out. usually gone within 24 hrs.

Today I'm nursing a case of the flu. It's Summer, for pity's sake. Don't have a clue as to where I got it or I'd be so generous as to go back to the person and share.... once again! The doctor says to stay in bed and sleep through it as much as possible. Kind of hard considering one minute I'm burning up and the next I'm freezing.

The only thing I seem to be able to deal with today is water and a bit of ginger ale. I don't catch the flu often, but when I do it seems to put me down for five days to a week. Can you tell I'm thrilled? Think I'll just go back to sleep.

Wow, really good use of HER time! Must have little to do to ride this horse so hard. Be glad you're done with her.

You're not going to believe this. I gave her what she wanted....again...an "audience" with my boss.
But first I printed everything out that had transpired as to our conversation back and forth. Gave it to my boss and explained it thoroughly and let her know that she was still demanding management call her! That way she wasn't going in blind, right? And she'd have my back.

So boss lady read through it and she said even though there was so much there including the apologies and admittance of the mistake I should have picked up the phone and spoke directly with her. It might have been settled sooner and more amicably.
OK, I'll give her that. None-the-less I had done my part dotted all i's and crossed all t's.
So boss lady calls her tells her basically the exact same thing as I had been telling her with the exception of reiterating the fact that yes, I had no problem taking responsibility and own the mistake. When I'm wrong I say I'm wrong.
Boss lady hangs up smiling. That's all she'd wanted was direct ownership of the mistake.
I'm shaking my head. emoticon Good grief!
What The Heck! Every time I apologized and specifically saying for running the ad on the wrong date, wasn't that taking ownership of the mistake!?
Oh, for pity sakes! SOME PEOPLE
Anyway over and done.
Boss lady said next time yeah pick up the phone and apologize and then hand it over to me right from the get-go. I said yeah no kidding!
So it's all good. She's keeping the ads in and she's as happy as a peach. And enough of this drama! I'm just glad it's over!

Wow! You're right...........what happened to your boss??!!
And, can't imagine having to work with that client. Can you no longer work with her without your publication losing the ad? I guess, since she's never made a mistake, she can ride that high horse into the sunset. Wow. Dealing with the public............

Enjoy your animals, your plants and your beautiful yard.
