welcome to alberta

on April 13, 2008 - 10:49am

I am a little disappointed today,as in true Alberta fashion,it is windy.There is a saying here, "if you don't like the weather wait 10 minutes",this usually holds true except with the wind.We are probably one of the windiest corners of the world.It is ruining my plans for the day as the temperature is perfect,the skies are clear and there is no danger of rain,however,the dreaded wind is so strong that it will blow you down the street if you go for a walk.I will not be able to take the tortoise out for a walk today as the wind would make him ill.Rats!!I am sure he would love to go outside.I am hopeful that the wind will drop towards evening and before the sun goes down.At least there are hockey games on today so I won't be completely bored to tears.

Love the weather

on April 12, 2008 - 10:22am

I love where I live this time of year.We always seem to have spring early on the prairies and it always is such great weather.Another day of light jacket temperatures and lots of birds.Tomorrow is suppose to be in the mid twenties celsius [about 80 degrees fahrenheit] and light breeze,a day to take the tortoise outside for a walk.It will be perfect as I can wear my I-pod and listen to Josh while I walk Edward [yes my daughter has named our tortoise Edward Norton].It's not like he'll be able to run away as speed is not his strong suit.

New Josh Stuff

on April 11, 2008 - 3:00pm

I just ordered the charm bracelet from the Josh store and I can't wait to get it.I am excited as it appears that other charms will follow and it will be nice to collect them all and make a beautiful piece of jewelry. Delivery to Medicine Hat usually takes 4 to 6 weeks so I'll have to be patient and not watch the mail too much.I will have to also be patient waiting for the arrival of the DVD.I sometimes make myself crazy by doing things that make me wait,but that is how I learn to be more patient.Encourage the spirit and the mind follows is the way I look at it.

Always Josh

on April 10, 2008 - 3:58pm

Today I sat with my I-pod on and listened to Josh for a full hour before I had to start work.His beautiful voice stayed with me the whole day all through my shift.I still have the lyrics of L'Utima Notte running through my head.I LOVE JOSH'S VOICE SO MUCH!!!He truly does rescue my soul.

long day

on April 8, 2008 - 4:35pm

Man am I exhausted!! Work was insane today as I had a patient load that almost exceeded my energy.It was not only long but very challenging,as people all seemed to have needed that extra TLC today.I have some pain myself in my shoulder blade and that made things a little more difficult and stole some of my energy.I need to catch my second wind however, as I have to visit a dying uncle in hospital tonight and also set up a meeting to help develop a nutritional plan for my autistic brother.I am very excited about the meeting for my brother as there are some very forward thinking people that help care for him.I am so pleased that a holistic approach is available to my brother,rather than pharmaceuticals to treat some of his nervousness.I love my brother so much as he is such a gentle and patient man.I wish,for him, that he can adjust and respond to some of the programs they have established for him.He deserves an opportunity to live life to its fullest.
