Christmas time is here!


This year I am especially grateful for family and friends. We are expecting an addition to our family and the excitement keeps building. June 2010 cannot get here fast enough. I want to make sure I take the time to celebrate everything with my husband. Our last Christmas as just the two of us. It doesn’t make me sad though, just excited that we’ll have a sweet little bundle to enjoy the seasons with.

I’m looking at the positive and trying not to stress too much on the negative (sucky work). Life is good, life is precious and I am blessed to be able to carry our child.

Thankful for Life’s Blessings

Fall is here! I always used to grudgingly give into the beauty of fall because the turning of the leaves always signalled the end of summer and the beginning of the long, long, long COLD. But this year, something is different. I’m loving the colours and the changes.

I am very thankful for family, friends and all of life’s blessings. I’m truly excited about the bend in the road and the adventures to come.

Visions of dancing pots and pans

Moved into my new home on the weekend. Very excited but also overwhelmed by the boxes to be unpacked. If only I could wave a magic wand and boxes would unpack themselves. I’m imagining pots and pans coming to life a la Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. They would sign and dance and clean my floors and then go back into the cupboards…if only.

I have a feeling this fantasy will turn into a nightmare when my husband is travelling and my overactive imagination takes over. I can imagine the headline now, “crazy lady locked herself in bathroom, scared of dancing pots and pans.”

Bread + butter and water please…at 4am

I had my 3 year old nephew for a sleepover on the weekend. He never ceases to amaze me. He keeps me on my toes with all of his questions and commentary. At 4am on Sunday my nephew woke me to tell me he was hungry and wanted “bread and butter and water.” I gave him water but skipped the bread and butter since I figured he was dreaming and he went right back to sleep after a few sips of the water. That wasn’t the end of the night. He woke me a little while later to tell me his room was funny and that he could see a nose. Yes, a nose. He was pointing at the window. I checked the blinds and looked around for something that would cast a nose-shaped shadow but didn’t find anything. I moved on to round two of trying to get some sleep. It seemed to work this time, with no further interruptions.

The next morning my husband and I were checking on the sleeping nephew and my husband suggested breakfast at the Sunset grill. My nephew, fast asleep at this point, shouted out “No, I don’t want to take my sun scream off, leave my sun scream!” What goes on in that little head? He sure does keep me entertained.

A new chapter

I’ve lapsed in my blogging...as I’ve feared but I’m trying again. April and May have been a whirlwind. I have been busy crossing things off my list. List and sell my condo- check. Get a new job- check. Buy a new home- check. It is bitter sweet as my husband and I are packing up our first home together. Lots of great memories in this home. My husband proposed to me in this home. I have spent many nights in, curled up on the couch watching movies with my husband. My idea of heaven.

Goodbye first home, on to the next adventure in suburbia. Excited and scared but happy that my best friend, my husband, and I are setting out hand in hand to the next chapter of our story.

April Showers, May Flowers?

If April showers bring May flowers, what does April snow bring?

Ever since I moved to Canada, April has become a transition month for me. Do you put away the winter coat? Do you plant those flowers? That was never an issue in Tropical Trinidad and Tobago.

April is also a time for me to reflect because I’m an April baby. Big 3-0 this time around. Age is just a number right?

April 2009 will be a big month. Turning 30, shopping for a new job, selling my condo and shopping for a new home…maybe I’ve taken on too much.

Friday, I'm in love.

In my effort to maintain positive vibes here, I haven’t blogged in a while. There’s been a whole lot of negativity going around. But, it’s Friday afternoon and all is well. It is rainy so I think tonight’s activities will involve snuggling under a blanket and watching old movies. That’s my idea of luxury and celebration of the end of the work week.

There will definitely be some chocolate imbibing this weekend! Happy Friday!

Sunday, Sunday

Sunday night again. Sunday is such a tease of a day. The morning is pure luxury, sleeping in...The afternoon is like a fading Hollywood lady and night time comes around and it’s time to pay the piper for the awesomeness of Friday night and Saturday. Oh Sunday, you play me every time...

Going through the motions

At work physically but not here mentally. Just going through the motions. Dreaming of sleeping in, cinnamon waffles and watching old movies all day. 6 more hours until I can escape. The high pitched sounds coming from the photocopier may drive me batty today...focus on the good

Cheesy goodness

This is my second attempt at blogging and hopefully it sticks this time as I feel I need an outlet.

I chose my nickname to remind me to be grateful for all that I have. I’m very lucky to have a great love, great family and great friends.

I chose “Yellow, sunny days” as the title of my blog for a few reasons.
I need to be more optimistic and the right shade of yellow instills happiness.
Yellow is one of my favourite songs by one of my favourite bands.
I’m always happy on sunny days

Wow, it’s a little cheesy but everyone could use a little cheesy goodness in life. Here’s to hoping I stick with the blog this time!
