My Weekly Smile; Nov. 11, 2020

Happy Veterans day to all the veterans currently serving our country and all who have retired and who have served this great country. I have shared this photo before when my daughter promoted to Major, but I surprised my hubby by ordering this canvas print of my veterans that I Love so dearly. I have never ordered a canvas print (all my photos go to Google cloud, then I order from them photo books and decided to try canvas prints. You can order regular prints too. It’s quick and easy so I love it!) I am not trying to write a commercial or promote Google photos, but I am so impressed with its ease I thought I would mention it. I know there are many places to get prints and photo books.

My daughter is finally recognizing her accomplishments, giving herself some credit for all her hard work. I tell her often how proud we are as graduating from the Air Force Academy is no easy feat and she did this with flying colors 10 years ago. This year she has transferred to the Space Force so we will see where she goes on this new career path. My husband is a Viet Nam Vet, and very proud of his service. He served 8 years in the Air Force. He did not fight in Viet Nam, he was supporting the troops that were there.

I am smiling as we honor all that have served. Again, Happy Veterans Day!!

I am on day 3 of my new job. Switching to day shift has been a bit tougher than I thought it would be. By the end of the day I feel jet lagged, as I stand all day at work which also includes walking around but it feels like a long day. I know I am feeling a bit tired too because I am learning a new computer system. So my brain is full of all this new stuff. It isn’t difficult now that I see it in action and I am seeing the flow of work through this computer system. Last night driving home it really felt like Thursday, and its only Tuesday! Haha, 3 more days to go but I am feeling refreshed this morning. 😀

I am smiling at this new adventure and am sure once I am on my swing shift schedule I will feel better. I don’t have much time in the mornings to attend to my horses. It’s all I can do to go turn them out and make them run around the arena a bit to stretch their legs. These photos were from yesterday morning. I like the rising sun in some of the photos!

I am so happy I have the time to see these pretty ponies every morning as it is my bit of normalcy. I can’t wait for this week to be over because I do not have time to ride. But I tend to them, getting some blood flowing and moving their stiff legs as it’s in the 40’s now at night. I groom them and put them up until tomorrow. I miss riding, but will ride this weekend and any day I want starting next week! So very THANKFUL this new job decided to create these new hours just for me!! They have never employed someone swing shift before, I feel like a guardian angel is looking out for me! SMILING from ear to ear when I think of my new hours! One more photo to share, I hope you all have some great smiles this week. I think there is a lot to smile about. 😀

Transitioning Smiling Cowgirl! Loving my Veterans! ❤ ❤ ❤

  1. Happy Veterans Day to your two vets 🙂 Space Force – very cool. I have relatives who work in space (a nephew writes programs to control satellites).

    Glad the new job is going well. Cool that they created a schedule for you. I used to hate doing shift work, which I did when I was in Air Traffic Control in a different life time, but I understand when there is no daylight after work to do things!

    I hope the rest of your week goes well and that you continue to enjoy your new job 🙂

    1. Thank you Trent!! That’s cool you have relatives working in space too. My daughter was stationed at Eglin AFB and her assignment was working at a huge radar that tracks everything orbiting Earth. Which of course included many satellites and a bunch of floating junk.

      Every day so far I’m enjoying my decision, but must say I can’t wait for the later shift hours. I’m hoping this is all I imagined it to be. I remember you mentioning your air traffic control days. I know shift work isn’t for everyone, I’ve made it work all these years. Swings should be better! Have a great rest of the week! 😀

  2. Photos on canvas are fun.Please thank your Husband for His service to our world, my Dad was a Vietnam vet, he volunteered, we went through hell as a family because of what he went through, (that’s a whole other story I may share one day) their treatment was horrible as far as recognition goes.Things have improved as far as recognition goes here in Aus over the years. I have a sticker on my my car “proud daughter of a Vietnam Vet” as I want all our service people to know they are appreciated for their sacrifices. Love the ponies, you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours, Love Chloe at the end all goo after kisses. I hope your ride this weekend is magnificently chillaxin. ( :

  3. You have much to be proud of.. How wonderful for your daughter and yes, I too am thankful for all of our veterans. Your canvas print is so nice. I will have to try it sometime. Congratulations on all of the new in your life. We have change coming our way and it entails packing.. Am smiling about it but the packing is not all that fun.. lol! today we got out and walked in the rain. Which I don’t mind. A raincoat and umbrella are helpful. I will try singing in it next time..

    1. Thank you so kindly! It’s crazy all the changes that have happened this year. Sounds like you will be moving, packing and moving is exciting but hard work and not really fun work! Glad you got some rain!! Haha, you could be singing in the rain! Have a good weekend! ❤️❤️❤️

  4. Diana, You have much to be proud of, especially the two vets in your family. I’m glad your new job is going well. It takes time to adjust to new schedule and job role so be kind to yourself. I love your horse photos, especially the last one. Have a great week ahead!

    1. Thank you so much Natalie! Your kind words are much appreciated and I’ve had to tell myself exactly what you’ve said to be kind to myself as I learn this new job. My experience is helping but it’s funny how hard we can be on ourselves. 😀
      I’m so happy you enjoy the horses photos! So FUN for me to share, they are the sweetest horses. Have a wonderful week! ❤️
