Simple Pleasures...

It is the sweet simple things in life which are the real ones afterall...

I'm happy just having my sister and J here with us.  It's not like
we have all these extravagant plans, but it's the fact that we have quality 
time for the next few days is what I appreciate more than anything. Unfortunately,
my sister nor her son likes their pictures taken much.  Similar to Arvid.  So
I have a battle the next few days to see if I can get anything other than their backs.

It is not often my family visits us.  At least Arvid's family visits every
year in Florida and stays for quite some time.  This way he also gets quality 
time.  Then we do the Norway trip and we are there close to three weeks.

Now it's my time to enjoy my sister and J.  I'm just happy.  I want
to show them so much and do so much with them.  At he same time, I 
look forward to walks and a few fruity drinks with umbrellas with them.
Guess the umbrella is sometimes optional depending on where you go, but
the taste is always good no matter where you go.

Happy that Arvid has a few soccer games he wants to see.  This means
that he will be seated in one spot and we can roam around doing whatever we 
please and then meet up for lunch or drink on the beach.  Could not be better.

Yes, like many, I find happiness in the simplest of things.

It's funny how it's the simple things in life that mean the most, 
not where you live, what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes.
A good friend knows all of your stories.  A sister has lived them with you....
