Snow melted before noon! Yay! Just a bit cold though. Going to warm up to springlike temperatures. Hoping it lasts!!!

Super tired this week! Not used to working outside the home again, I guess. Lol.....

Good Evening, GASBAR ♬ That is good you enjoyed a relaxing day today with a long walk at the park. I am sure you are much happier with the warmer spring weather in your area! I remember you complaining about the cold winter and lots of snow.

Thank you for taking the time to √ out the pictures from my day yesterday with the Easter Musical Drama Rehearsal and my easy commute going back home. Thank you for the well wishes for my left elbow. Thankfully a good night's sleep cured it and my arm is back to normal again! Thank you for your kind thoughts for my day today. Today's happy updates are posted at my Studio.

Joisygal ♩ You're welcome for the ongoing well wishes and encouragement on your new Insurance career! I hope the frost and snow spell won't last too long in your area.

Good Night!

Rained all night last night then about 5am the rain changed to snow with enough to cover the ground and the temp dropped from 1c to -6c within a couple of hours and then the wind picked up and now it feels like -15c

Joisygal hope your second day on the job went well

Thank you for your kind thoughts for my weekend. It was busy, but thankfully I was able to take a long nap on Sunday evening.

Joisygal ♫ You're welcome for the encouragement! I am glad your first day of work in the Insurance biz went well! Best wishes on the training and actual work! I hope it will be a profitable career change for you!

Good Night! Here is a picture that I took of tonight's full moon at 7:38 PM, from the Tambuli Supermarket parking lot.

Good morning GASBAR...cloudy day with a high of 17°C. Plan to rake the front lawn by the road...lots of sand on the lawn from a winter with lots of snow. I have a very small pile of snow in my backyard that I expect will be gone after today. Have a great day.

Good afternoon GASBAR...I must be getting older as morning rain had me drive to work. The thought of cycling in the rain was not very appealing to me! Now have a mix of sun & cloud with a high of 18°C...temps not seen in a long time. Have a great day.
Joisygal-GASBAR & attitash can`t be wrong..relax & have fun! Happy birthday to your daughter...hope you spoiled her!!!!

Good Evening, GASBAR ♫ I hope your Saturday went well! Thank you for √ing out my spring cactus pictures and for your kind words. Thank you also for your kind wishes for my career #2 in sales. Yes, I really need that new sales career, especially with the recession and severe losses of Students and income that have really hurt my biz. I especially look forward to closing my first deal and making my first paycheck from the company.

Good Evening, GASBAR ♬ I am glad you had another nice day of visiting the children at the hospital. How nice to give them some time outside of the hospital to enjoy the beauty and sunshine of the outdoors! Sunshine is therapeutic and so wonderful to spend some time in!

Thank you for your concern about my asthma, and also for your kind thoughts for my day today. Today's updates, health updates, and pictures, are posted at my Studio.

Joisygal ♩ I can totally relate to your situation and concerns regarding taking on a commission-only sales job. I have done that before with my previous work as a Realtor. It was so difficult, I had to juggle selling homes with teaching Music Students and doing Music Gigs. I hope and pray you will succeed at your new sales career and venture. If you are able to, it is a wise idea to juggle your new career together with a part-time job that pays regular income, because it is not easy to pay bills and meet ongoing needs with the irregularity of on commission only income.

I have been self-employed almost my entire working career, so I can relate with how difficult it is to live on "feast or famine" type irregular income. But with financial discipline, it can be done. Best wishes and prayers for your success on your new career and venture!

Good Night!

Thanks for the well wishes! Plan to do my best!

Joisygal you will be fine just relax and take a few deep breaths before you get there

Very sunny and warm here today we had a high of 16c. We took a couple of the children outside for a bit this afternoon to enjoy the sunshine and spring air.

Hope everyone had a great day and also a fantastic weekend ahead.

Joisygal ♬ You're welcome for the license advice. I am happy for you that you landed a position with an insurance company and will soon start training! I hope and pray you will succeed at your new career endeavor. BTW, is this a traditional employed and salaried work position, or is it a commission-only type sales job?

Good Evening, GASBAR ♩ Thank you for answering my question regarding using the pick up claw during your park cleanups for smaller items. That is good the city is involved and picks up the big bags of rubbish that you and others gather around the park. That is good you had another productive trash pick up day at the park.

I hope the rest of your week goes well with the visitations to the children at the hospital.

Joisygal ♪ Congratulations once again to you on passing your Insurance Licensing Exam! Hopefully in the coming days you can start your new career and training as an Insurance Licensee. Once you have the license, renewing it is much easier. You just have to do it and not let the license get renewed late or expire.

Good Night!

JOISYGAL I knew you could do it a BIG CONGRATS my friend

attitash a nice day here also

MusicTeacher we do use that claw to pick up the small stuff but it is kind of hard to pick up a car tire or a kitchen sink (no joke) with one of those things. One nice thing is the city picks the bags up for us on there patrols of the parks.

Did some more cleanup today But Thursday and Friday are my days at the hospital so will go there instead of the park.

Good Evening, GASBAR ♪ How nice of you and others to volunteer your time to clean up your local park by picking up trash. In my community, they also have some organized volunteer activities with beach cleanups. Cleanups like that are much easier if you have use a mechanical claw. Plus it will keep your hands cleaner too!

Thank you for your encouraging words for me getting my taxes prepared on Monday! Yes, it feels good to have that big task done just in time!

Thankfully my Tuesday went very well, as I shared at my Studio.

Joisygal ♫ Congratulations on passing your Insurance Licensing Exam on your second try! You're welcome for all the prayers and encouragement. Best wishes as you prepare for the next steps in your future career. Passing the initial exam is the first step in many steps to a new career. It reminds me of what I had to go through when I studied hard to earn my Realtor License, and then started training and working as a Realtor. Test knowledge can be different from practical knowledge you gain as you work your new job. Best wishes for your future success! :-)))))

attitash like you I too think the change is a no brainer. I say the same thing WHY?

Joisygal you can do it

attitash been cycling off and on for about six weeks but it as been mostly off with the crappy weather.

MusicTeacher cleaned up a 3 acre section of the park near us today 4 people including me had 12 big bags of trash cleaned up. The creek that runs through the park is still too high to go near it so we will wait for the water to recede

Good evening GASBAR...busy day at work left me away from GB & lunch! Also got an hour of OT. Rain has replaced a sunny start to the day & is expected through the night. Surprised to see GB is now giving away 1000 points for posting gas prices instead of 750 points...see no reason for the change now. Have posted close to 10 years with point values remaining the same. Put away all my ski gear & snow shovels yesterday but not time for the golf clubs yet. Might cycle to work on Friday(a month late). Have a good night.
