The snow geese have flown south once again! I'm not just talking about the real snow geese , but I'm talking my momma and daddy! They left this morning! I am kinda jealous. I wish I could pack myself in the back of their trailer and be a stow away. I would love to avoid the harsh winter here in Canada, and end up in Texas! At the same time I am happy to stay behind and enjoy my new job! I really am happy to be here and am thankful that I have a warm home and warm building to work in! Pray for mom and dad as they travel with their home in tow. Pray that all storms will stay away as they go. I miss them already. Oh by the way mom and dad, I found your ironing board. It was in my clothes closet( don't know how it got there) hiding behind my clothes that I hung up. Like I told you before I don't iron often but use the dryer to iron for me. Any way I digress. Happy trails to you momma and daddy!

Okay people! Are you all scared now? Has the media not made you frightened enough? I'm talking about the H1N1 flu. I work in an environment where the swine flu could be trouble. It's a closed academy where germs are shared due to living , sleeping , eating and learning in close quarters. Our academy has been warned and warned and instructed again about proper, and safe personal germ busting methods. What it comes down to is " Wash your hands People" Wash your hands after you use the washroom! Wash your hands after you touch the public shopping carts, or ATM machines...... Do this before you eat or touch your own mouth, eyes , or nose. If you can't wash your hands then use the antiseptic gels. If I can't wash my hands then I have a bottle of hand sanitizer with me. Hand sanitizer is mostly alcohol and is better to use than nothing at all. The best method however is to wash, wash , wash your hands. Take responsibility for your own health. Okay, I'm getting off the soap box now. :)

I have so much to be thankful for! Just to name a few things, my kids and grand kids,

My home, a free country, food
in abundance, friends who care and most importantly God who makes all things possible! I have to mention an event that has happened more recently. I got a new job that I am so excited about! I have been extended to work in the print shop until 2011. It is a dream come true and I thank God for that. I was in the print shop from May until September on a temporary basis. I had a wonderful summer. I was treated like a human being and I seemed to excel and thrive in that job situation. I just found out on Friday that I have been extended and that I am needed in that job position for a lot longer! I am on cloud nine! I can not stop smiling! I start on Tuesday!
