  The other day a man asked me what I thought was the best time of life.  "Why," I answered without a thought, "now"...Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning....

I woke up at 4am this morning just laying in bed  trying to go back to sleep but, the terrible nightmare that woke me up in the first place just kept playing over and over again in my head.  What a terrible way to wake up.... all scared, sweaty and breathing hard.  Not a pleasant experience...but like someone said "I have had dreams, and I have had nightmares. I overcame the nightmares because of my dreams" 

making me feel better:)

At that very moment I heard the soft sounds of Brutus meowing:) this as usual makes it impossible to keep a straight face:) I woke up smiling and all nightmares were forgotten. There are few things in life more heartwarming  than to be welcomed by a cat.

On another note things are shaping up in our home.  The kitchen cabinets have arrived and have been installed.  All done by Arvid and I.  Suddenly the place is starting to look and feel differently.  Soon I guess I will call it home.  Strange but, I am sill having a little hard time living here.  I still miss the convenience of having everything close by.


Last night we decided to go to The Downtowner.  At one time we would just walk over now, we drive half hour and we actually think before if we want to do it or not.  Not so much fun to always have to drive to everything when we were used to walking to it:)....and when we got there within an hour we decided we would head back to Tamarac. 

preparing for the cold:)
Arvid was tired and I did not mind leaving either.  Since I am the designated driver, I do not like to drive too late at nights...guess this will limit our going outs quite a bit...even so we had a good time. 

I had a little time at the mall and met a few of the girls in the stores.  They wondered where I had gone to since they said they never see me anymore.   Told them we moved and where we moved to.  They looked at me and said so sorry for you:)  Made me smile actually.

Arvid's favorite:)
We also took some time and enjoyed a meal at PF Chang's.  Ever since I introduced this restaurant to Arvid in Chicago it has become one of his favorites also.  I have always liked it:)

We are continuing our quest to buy properties and to hopefully rent them out.  Hopefully, soon I will be able to advertise The Fur house here on my blog. 

staying warm:)
 Soon our Sunday begins.  Lots to do and it is looking to be another beautiful day with cool temperatures.  Unfortunately, the cold is only going to get worse and worse as the week progresses.  Have to pull out the winter jackets:)
Have a great day all:) 

Every man dies - Not every man really lives....Don't let the past steal your present...Don't let yesterday use up too much of today...
Just look at Brutus..not a care in the world.

until next time...
