Good morning everyone,

The temperatures are finally warming up somewhat. It's only -18 this morning.
Yesterday it was snowing and blowing and I went to Stettler to get my mid-month bulk shopping done and was back before nightfall. I hate travelling at night.
Once home I got everything put away and started into my Saturday cleaning chores. WIth Friday off I did my laundry. One thing less yesterday.

Today it's to the business of paperwork. Getting everything in order to do up our taxes and balancing budgets; entering mid-month payments etc.

First things first, coffee with bone broth and exercises. So, I'll catch you on the flip side.



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.

My baby girl is home and I'm not toasty warm but a heck of a lot warmer for sure.
Now here's a chuckle. I think they think I'm your typical woman who doesn't know her vehicle. So when I went to pick up my car they had a list of what they noticed should also be done.
One was plugs and wiring harness, ( yeah NOT my car starts perfectly fine and in this cold of -35-42 without a hitch There's nothing wrong with my plugs.
Next, it was my timing belt You're supposed to change it out after 250,000 Did that two years ago.
A/C belt Had that changed out at the same time.
Oil change Those I do on a regular basis Just had it done in the fall Now I'll do it in the Spring...myself! Same with changing out the air filter. I blow it out and it'll be good for a while yet. If it does need changing I can pick one up for a song at Canadian tire and change it out...myself.
Yeah right with everything they listed along with labour they wanted another 1,123.00 Not going to happen! LOL
I know my vehicle and know what it needs when it needs it.
This girl was independent for many a year I could take my car to my mechanic and say this-this and this needs working on. I'd leave it with him, come back and ask so..and he'd say you're right on the money.
I'll be the same way with these "idiots"

We're still in the freezer here and we had snow dumped on us yesterday. About 3 inches. I just swept off the Subaru and started it to warm up.
My car is at the mechanics until Wednesday. Turns out it needs a new heater core. A severe plugged one was the culprit for no heat. So, with Walt being home this week I'll be using the Subaru until mine is out of the "hospital"

Well, I came away from my doctor's appointment feeling somewhat exonerated.
I have been feeling as though I'd been fighting and fighting and struggling yet I kept right on doing what I've been doing especially with the increased physical exercise and toning.
Today I was told it's paying off!
For one I stepped on their scale only to find it registered a 5 lb gain! I felt so defeated!
But then she looked at me after we'd taken my blood pressure and renewed my prescriptions and said keep doing what you're doing it's paying off! It's starting to show!

Yeah, our temperatures keep fluctuating It's annoying! Over the weekend we had temps of +6 & 7. Today it's -21 See what I mean..erratic!

Well, we didn't have a 32-page paper...we had a 36!!! So, once my ads were all present and accounted for I left for home. The others are still there finishing up the last of the pages for news and events. So, you know what my day entailed.

Just checking in.
And it's already been a day. Almost finished household chores catch up because of being out yesterday.
Have a few more small jobs to get done, but also mixed beef ground with deer ground for supper tonight and a cherry pie in the oven at someone's request.
It's +3 and warming up. Everything is melting!

Talk about dodge a bullet today!
Today was the deadline for ad submissions and a Production run of those ads is created and sent to graphics for the paper's layout. I had all my ads present and accounted for. HOWEVER, when I double checked the run list once i received my copy via e-mail, over half of my Hockey sponsors were missing!
I KNOW I had printed them out submitted them to accounts to put in the computer on Friday and e-mailed everything over to graphics so she had her copies.
Guess what DIDN'T get put into the computer to be accounted for!
So back into the office I went and between myself and my manager, we corrected the mistake! Took less than a half hour.
So NOW, I have the16 pg paper that I KNEW I should have.
Had it been left until the boss lady came in tomorrow morning...that fire breathing dragon we all know about from the dark ages..yeah that one! LOL
WHEW!!

OOH, it's a frosty morning here! And yet the temperatures are saying it's only -1 and only suppose to go as low as -10. There's no wind to speak of either.

All set for the day and ready to head out.

Another busy ad filled day. It's been COLD so it's very cozy being home and in the warmth of the house for the weekend and not having to go out unless I want to.

Made a pork chop and sweet potato for my dinner tonight and couldn't really finish it. Tastebuds are on the fritz. Enjoyed a vanilla yogurt with orange slices and a few seeds and nuts though. So now I'm content.
Going to go get into my warm fuzzies and watch the rest of Sar Trek with Walt.

Long story short. A very long tiring mind-bending day yesterday and then I had to go over to my friends and help dress a deer. When your day starts at 4 and goes until 8 it's not necessarily the length of day, but what is involved during those hours. It was way too full!

Anyway, I'm off to start my Friday. Catch up later.

HO! What a day.
Put Christmas away, did some rearranging in the master bedroom, including setting up a new power bar bedside so that I can charge my phone and have it beside me during the night as well as a laptop. That on top of my regular Saturday laundry and cleaning.
But, for a change, I had it all done before 3. Since then I've been setting up the new laptop. Well, new to me. And watched the House With The Clock In Its Walls with Jack Black!

Now I've had a nice dinner of roast chicken potatoes and corn. Used the time to do a half hour n my stepper while things cooked.
Now I've had my dinner and will go back to finishing up the laptop.

See this fellow?
I now have one just like him. He's been coming to my feeder for two-three years now and this year he walked in my door and made himself to home.
I've named him Two-Tone because of his colouring.
I have no idea how old his real age would be, but he has been neutered. He's rather scruffy looking.
I gave him a good brushing the other night. But he has mats on his back end and in his tail. Slowly working at getting them out.
Right now he comes in for the nights and out during the day.

The knee is much better. The swelling has gone done I'll still apply some PAIN-A-TRATE before bed.

Well, folks, I've been here a good part of my day updating re-organizing things for the new year! Tomorrow's another day so I'll say goodnight and see you in the morning!

I do have a bit of a swollen right knee for some reason. Could be from doing 20 minutes on my recumbent bike the other day. I hadn't done it for a few days. I've just been sticking with my planks walking and squats. So have iced it and rubbed my Pain-A-Trate on it and it's relieved so I'm now into my cleaning. So far the bed is made laundry on the go, living room and my corner office are clean. Man, I can't believe how the clutter collects in my office during the week!
I've taken all my herbs and bone broths and hemp oil so I should be good for a while.

Well, I haven't overdone it this year. I did a bit of baking for Walt. He has his requested sugar cookies and gingerbread men fresh out of the oven this morning. Only a dozen and a half of each.
No huge Christmas dinner either. No turkey, or stuffing. Not even cranberry sauce. I made a Ukrainian sausage and potatoes for supper and the special, special dessert this year was my mom's graham cracker date square. My sister Janice in Manitoba made them up and sent one to each of us girls.
I now have my very one FitBit!
I got Walt a clock for his office with a wolf for its face, and Roku A device that plugs into a USB port on the TV. It gives him access to over 150,000 movies and programs all the way back to 1920-30! Vintage!
We watched Bonanza most of the afternoon yesterday!

Although I "took the bull by the horns," it wasn't a real head-on confrontation. I merely stated the fact, pointing out what the initial cause was for the confusion.

Now we have the staff memo and it's not so much directed at myself or my manager but more so Boss Lady and the other sales rep. For myself and the manager, it's more so that we have a reference point should they deviate from the said directive.

And being the Boss she is she didn't take back the monies paid out in commissions because it was her error, but from this day forth those commissions won't be allocated. They stay in-house. I'm just thankful that it's been addressed and "put to bed."

I'm a little on the tired side this morning. Not exactly dragging butt, but my dreams were those active dreams in real time again. They always leave me drained.
A good cup of dark roast Tim's should do the trick LOL

Boss lady is out today so I can concentrate on my own set-out directives to be completed for this week and do it feeling far more relaxed than if she were there.

Then I'm headed for Red Deer in the morning to finish up my Christmas shopping, grocery shopping and take in a matinee. Going to go watch Mortal Engines in 3D!

Yeah, today we sat down and brainstormed as to how to differentiate the clients and area she was initially given and I said we should include me in that so that even though it is more about getting her more settled into her sales position that she is made to feel that this isn't all about her. So we put together a "staff memo". It still needs a bit of tweaking but that will be sent out tomorrow once completed.
What we did was to define and refine the guidelines between her position and mine and what clients and areas is whose and should the lines be crossed which they sometimes are with her clients calling the office and speaking with me...that this is the policy in place, that I process and finalize and enter the information into that client's file and then keep her in the loop with a quick e-mail.
If they e-mail me with an inquiry I answer their questions and then refer them to her as she is their rep. If they want to conclude the sale with me which some do because they are used to dealing with me as their rep, then again I process and finalize enter the information into their file, making sure that her name is on the insertion order, and loop her in.
If the e-mail is a straight up ad booking I forward the e-mail to her to complete the transaction.
That's actually been the procedure all along,
It's just the clients even though in her area that were to remain with me for booking because they were grandfathered in with me, the boss lady made the error of giving her commision credit for their booking instead of leaving them registered with House. So, now they will stay that way. I book them her name goes on the Insertion order.
I have no qualms with that. I'm on salary. But Boss lady doing what she did, caused confusion. After yesterday's "chat" she sees that now and is correcting it. Setting up a policy in writing. Mostly for her own sake so she won't change things again without referring to it.
it was a good day!

The kinks in the cog needed to be addressed and resolved. Mission accomplished. I have to admit, I feel kind of exonerated.

Now, today is another day. I have the inserters in. She is there for a part of the day and then she has meetings and a distribution run to do! It's all good.

Up at my 4:45 this morning everything accomplished including 60 upright planks and 30 chair squats. Feeling pretty darn good!

And how very fitting today's blog is!

Had a "confrontation" with the boss lady today at coffee break.

She opened the can of worms over what's been happening with the other sales rep and why. So I closed it today.

The thought hit me today. I'm the In-house Sales rep. A part of the administration so rather than just "dealing" with the Boss lady's outbursts I'm stepping up and voicing my opinions. Not just to her anymore but in front of and with the other staff members present. So...that's exactly what I did today.

She broached the subject and I took up the gauntlet. I just told her straight up.

"I know why there's confusion and she's asking questions. It's because you gave her specific guidelines as to specific clients that would remain mine for booking specific ads and you gave her that list and then 6 months later you've changed those guidelines and the rules and told no one.
In being out of the loop I continued with the original guidelines of if a client in her area e-mails me I forward it to her to look after. If a client calls it in I look after the paperwork and keep her in the loop and put her name on the insertion order and post a record of it in their client file on the SmartSheet so she knows what has been done.
But now, you've given her those very clients, making it so her name appears beside them on the production run and she receives payment for them even though she has not booked them but there are still ones you haven't done this with so she is still seeing my name beside them on the production run every week rather than hers. Do you see the confusion and why she's asking the questions she's asking?
She actually admitted to it.
And I continued with; Now you have to come up with the resolution before it escalates and we have an ugly reoccurrence of the previous sales rep.
I can help with that. You can't take back what has been given, However, rather than continue putting my name beside those clients that would be hers that you haven't given to her but I have booked label them - House. Removing my name removes the visual of who's is who's. The ownership.

Once you've gotten this straightened out PLEASE, PLEASE write it down somewhere for later reference so that you won't go changing things by relying on your memory because heaven knows how you forget!
You know, she took it off of me and agreed! So we are on the level ground again...for now!

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.

Did anyone send out their Christmas cards yet? Is your Christmas shopping all done and decorations up?

I'm all done! I hate having to surface clean during the week. NOW... I've done the deep cleaning, organizing the kitchen, living room, bathroom, front and back entrances which included doing the electrician thing and mending Walter's jacket and two pairs of coveralls! I wanted to be done by 3:00 Guess what 2 minutes to the hour!
And in between all of it both yesterday and today, I managed to get all my e-mails out to last year's Agricultural Breeder's for this year's ads and including a few new ones. All in all, I sent out over 5 hundred e-mails! And my tree is up!

Pain, what pain? I remembered to take my bone broth with turmeric and hemp Oils!

OK Slept in til 7:30!! So now I'll get COFFEE and breakfast for both of us and tackle the living room. I also have a couple of baskets of laundry to fold and put away. I'll probably do that first. But not before I do my planks and squats! And certainly not before I take my hemp oils!

I fully intend on doing more in the house tomorrow. The plan is to tear apart the living room and get that done. Everything needs cleaning behind and underneath, the walls and ceiling could stand a wipe down, and of course, I want to set up the power bar for the TV etc.

I paid for yesterday's "exercises" I forgot to take my hemp oils!! Trust me that won't be happening tomorrow!

Well, we're back up to -8 and by Monday we're supposed to be back to 0 I can handle that!

Well didn't get my normal Saturday in house chores done. At least not all of them. Laundry yes, kitchen yes. Boy did the kitchen get it. I pulled out my stove and scrubbed the dirt and grime from the sides of it and down the side of the Fridge. Then I took and rerouted the fridge and freezer to their own outlet and have the dishwasher on its own power bar so that I can completely shut it off when not in use. This way it's not drawing any power at all. I did the same with the microwave and coffee pot.

I bought a special power bar to do the same with the TV DVD and VCR in the living room because they'll need a good surge protector. I'm working on making this little place of ours more energy efficient and reduce our electrical bill. So we'll see the results or should on next month's bill. Took my car into my mechanic yesterday for an assessment on brakes, exhaust and a squealing belt.

Turns out my brake pads are still good Fronts still has 95% and backs 60% so they're good The backs were squealing because they needed a cleaning. Done. The exhaust problem is the flexi hose up front needs replacing. So that will be done as soon as the part comes in. The squealing belt is my transmission belt. Doesn't need replacing but the pump is going so I have that being replaced. All in all between 4-500.00$ and he's agreed to take payments.

Well, I'm going to finish my supper and go watch the remainder of Willow with that man of mine!

it's calmed down again now. She has month end completed, which always makes her CRANKY when things don't balance.
Then in filling out the paper yesterday, she had a couple of things of mine she thought she'd found a glitch in. Seconds later she'd say, "Never mind my fault". And I'd just smile and say, "OK" sounds good. and chuckle to myself.

So things are good again...for now. At home too Still keeping up with my exercises; planks, squats etc. I have a spinach, pineapple and banana smoothie with ginger and bone broth with turmeric for breakfast every morning, a spinach salad sandwich for lunch and then a meat and vegetable for my dinner. Seems to be working.

Well, it's warmed up by 10 degrees We're now sitting at -4 BONUS for night temperatures here!

I had to end my day dealing with a bit of a disgruntled client.
They submitted a photo greeting for Christmas and then at the last minute boss lady wanted the names of those in that photo. The logical standard requirement, right? Well, they figured we had all year to do this and too little time to respond. Accused me of being abrupt with her staff, which I wasn't All I did was call and request to speak with her about this and to call me back when she returned from lunch.
She called I explained what I needed and she gave it to me. It was after the fact she became disgruntled, only because she then requested that the names be made smaller which if I had, our readers would not be able to read them and identify. So I explained this to her and let her know that we also send the proofs at a larger % in size to make it easier to read that if she printed it out at 100% she would notice that the names were smaller than they appeared in the proof we sent.
So my response: Again my apologies for the timeline and if there was any abruptness. That was never my intent.
We are always working to provide the best we can for our readers and it is good journalism to never put in photos without the names.

Again, I apologize.

Should be the end of story. We'll see.

Just a little chillier here today and FROSTY! -14 C The good thing? No wind.I'm off to work here in a bit Just waiting for the car to defrost. I have a product this winter called Rain-X Spray that on the window and Bazinga! Frost is gone!
Took my car down to my mechanic and booked it in for repairs. The exhaust needs fixing up front and the back brakes need pads. Once I have that done my "Alexis" will be top notch! Yeah I gave her a name LOL

Yesterday was fun! (Hint of sarcasm there.)

The day for the most part was fun Accomplished everything planned, but then after we'd gassed up at Costco and for the first time ever there was water mixed in with the gas so the car was sputtering and hesitating. We got turned around and went back to deal with the issue. Well, we got somewhere but no real solution. So, we bought 3 containers of gas line antifreeze and poured 2 into the gas tank. Problem fixed because the gas line antifreeze converted the water to a burnable gas.

After that things were fine except for the roads and visibility on the way home. The plows hadn't been out so they were snow covered and the lines were obscured.Then there was the snow coming down. We had to keep our speeds at 80kms for the better part of the way and our headlights on dimmed.

We made it home but an hour later than what we would normally.

Today, I have to finish up the laundry and cleaning So, I'm in the middle of that.

Good morning all!
We have a beautiful morning here in Coronation. The trees are heavily covered with hoar frost. Temperatures aren't bad either with - 7C. I've done my planks and squats but It's a beautiful crisp winter morning I'd love to go for about a 20-minute walk!
Yesterday I was out shovelling off the back deck and got some fresh air for 10 -15 minutes.

Up with the chickens this morning.
I was too pooped to pop after work yesterday I was actually in bed before 8! So now I'm WELL rested with my morning energy all built up! So here I am doing what I do on a Saturday plus. Walt was actually up with me for a bit but has now gone back to bed.
When he does get up again we'll have breakfast and head into Stettler for a bit.

My friend Leslie fell on the ice while at her sisters last week and did a bang up job on her right arm You should see the "magnificent" bruising! Needless to say, no more hunting because she can' lift the rifle. The doctor has ordered more x rays because she thinks she fractured something it's that swollen! She's wearing a protective sling at the moment.

Work is going well again. Boss is back on "level minded ground" but now Monday she is in Edmonton with her youngest son for his Dr's appointment to check on his cancer. So she is gone until Tuesday. I'm praying the reports are good.

In the meantime, I'm wearing two hats at work Media and Manager!
She's training me in the things that I will be responsible for during the week both she and Yvonne are away in July to a wedding in Whistler BC. I'm loving the challenge of course and KNOW I can do the job.

Ole' girl it's time you enjoyed these senior years...hint, hint stay out of the office more often! She caught and agreed wholeheartedly and was laughing.
She's in today but only until lunch, She has an appointment in Stettler and then we won't see her until Tuesday.

Well now, Boss-lady decided she was going to come at me with a canon today. I retaliated with a rocket launcher of my own.
I've HAD ENOUGH! I'd taken all I could take.
She storms into my office and has at least 25 insertion orders in hand. Slams them down on my desk and proceeds with her tirade of wasted time making up I.Os when I could have used a PickUp list! She then proceeds to go through them one by one pointing this out. After the third one, I stopped her. I said Joyce look at the name on the order. Does it say, Gayle? They're not mine!
So then, she rifled through them finding the one and only one that was. I looked at it pointed to last years page of ads and twisted it to face her "Do you see them on last years?" No, you won't because they didn't do an ad. Yes, they did the two out of three, Remembrance day and Don't Drive Impaired but they DID NOT DO Bullying Awareness. So yes, I made up the I.O as per policy.
She stormed out with a very red face. No apology The embarrassment was enough for me.

Then after lunch, I guess she hadn't had enough. She had the Gaul to come back with another issue. Same one, different client. This could have been on the pickup list. I said I suppose I could have and used a previous ad they had done simply for information sake but that's not your policy. They hadn't ever participated in this particular promotion so I.O it is. I just kept throwing that at her. I said if you want to change the policy it's called communication.

I don't know who soured in her cornflakes but I wasn't having any of it!

We had mostly rain over the weekend. Knocked the snow down but made the roads somewhat treacherous. Still made it to the Christmas party though and thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment.
Had some tummy troubles though. Not sure what I ate to cause it but it caused trapped gas, bloating and in misery up until the middle of the night last night. As right as rain again this morning.
I'm just wondering now whether it was the coleslaw. Raw cabbage? Anyway, just glad it's over and done with!

Headed to work here shortly to see if I can't make the existing 16 pager into a 20! Last years was a 12 page so this would be a substantial increase!

OK off to do my planks and squats! Catch ya's later!

Sorry, folks, I'd love to stay and chat but I am so mentally tired My mind is far too overworked with dealing with a boss who figures I'm the scapegoat At least that's the way she's made me feel this week. Her son has cancer and he's not doing too well even after chemotherapy So she's stressed out over that emotionally so I'm trying to take this all into consideration and take it on the chin.

Well, it seems we have an addition to the family. For 2 years I've had a purebred Himalayan male coming to the feeder. His fur matted and tail full of heaven knows what. Two days ago he was actually meowing at my living room window as all the others do! Sure enough, I opened the front door and in he trotted. I've gained his trust enough to start removing the mats and tangles.
Last night he asked to come in around 5:30 hungry and thirsty. So I gave him what he needed, and he curled up on the cushion and slept the entire night. He's outside now for some fresh air and bathroom. I'm hoping he returns before I leave for work. If not he'll be back and Walt is home today so it's all OK.

Thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon! Headed out just before 2. Stopped to ask permission to hunt on a farmer's land and then headed out.
Saw both deer and fresh moose tracks. We just missed seeing the moose too! Sneaky bugger!
Then we spent 2 hours out walking in bush scanning for deer. We saw ONE. A buck that came out of the back brush about 1000 yards out. Couldn't take it down though because we have tags for anterless. Nuts, we would have had our Moulee tonight if it hadn't had antlers!

Even had to stop for a cattle drive! This is Alberta!



Came back with knowledge, fresh brisk air and exercise! Man, that felt good!
I've had my supper. Now for a movie and mending! I have 2 new jeans to take in and a few repairs on Walt's work clothes I promised to fix before next week.

A beautiful day yesterday in Red Deer! Mammogram came back all clear so need to figure out what the issues are now.
Went to Costco and stocked up, then to Value Village and came home with some new to me clothes that actually fit! I hate being in between sizes! At the same time, I love it because it tells me I'm losing LOL

Well, it's back to the work world. Thursday I
finds me back in Red Deer but it's for a mammogram. both breasts have been feeling odd and hurting close to the breastbone and underneath. Not fearing anything. Both Doc and I have done the manual examinations and can't find anything so mammogram it is just to check things out.

Mother nature thinks we need a first winter "storm" It's snowing and blowing. So I'll get to work and hunker down.

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.

Where'd everybody go?

I've had a B-E-A-T-I-F-U-L Day. Up at 5:30 things around the house finished up from yesterday. spent quality time with hubby then out to the shooting range to sight in the guns so that next weekend we can bag our deer!
I haven't shot a rifle in years! Today I was shooting a 308 Winchester and a 12 Gage pump action and even hit the target 50 yards out!

Now I'm home and having a lovely supper with a huge salad and a small pork chop. Once I'm finished I'll join Hubby and finish watching Dr. Who!

Busy, busy day from the crack of dawn. Decided today that Friday's I am going to go into work a little more at my leisure. So I stayed home longer and got a few things done before going in so that I don't have so much to do tomorrow being as I'm going deer hunting. At least that is the plan.
Right now, it is snowing like there's no tomorrow! I went out to start the car at lunchtime and there was at least 3-4" accumulated on the hood and roof!

Actually slept in! Made it until 6 this morning.

Red Deer was beautiful yesterday.
Encountered some very unusual cloud formations!



.



Today now I've already taken the car down to the shop to get the windshield replaced and back. Now doing up the bit of cleaning left over from yesterday. Later I need to get out and finish up my fall planting and pruning.
