Relaxing Times...

I'm on the road a lot so when I get some time to relax I definitely take advantage...

Feels so good to be home and to be just the three of us again.  Had a great time in the Bahamas with friends, but also nice to just get back to our regular routines and to just go at our own pace again.  Being around Brutus is just a happy time for both of us.  We got home and Brutus never stopped running and playing.  After about two hours of non stop running he collapsed and slept for a very long time.

Arvid and I stopped all that we were doing to just watch this little kitty sleep and sleep.  We were happy to be home.  
Usually our Fridays are filled with music, Pina Coadas and an evening outing, but now since Arvid is not up to it 100%, we do other things.  On this Friday it was a little trip to Galleria Mall where I had a makeover.  Felt wonderful and when Arvid saw the results he said, "you look even more beautiful than usual."  I was happy.  Better yet, I ended up with tons of goodies:)

After a wonderful seafood lunch, I love snow crabs and I had my full; it was time to go out again and do some shopping and browsing.  We had a great time checking out shops.  Arvid even helped me choose some stuff in Sally's Beauty Shop.
The best part of the day was when Arvid asked me if I would like to go and have ice-cream.  He knows I really like it, but he is not the kind to just sit while I have it.  Today he surprised even me by not only sitting, but by also having some.  A rare thing for him.  This made a good day even better.

After all this activity it was time to head home and rest the foot which by now was starting to be very swollen. Travelling right  now is not the best thing we can do.  Arvid needs to constantly elevate the leg which is what we will be doing.  The weekend will be nice and quiet. Lunch with some friends today and as usual Sundays are just for the two of us.

Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.

Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction...
