New Week...Again

Today expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday. 
Realize the past no longer holds you captive. It can only continue to hurt you
 if you hold on to it. Let the past go. A simply abundant world awaits...

Brutus has been having days off from his pill.  So far counting today it will be 3 days 
without pills.  He is happy and we are happy cause he's eating again without much fear.  I also
 took a day off from blogging.  Sunday after all is our day to relax and to take it easy.

Saturday night Arvid went to the Fort Lauderdale Blues festival with a friend.  Seeing that it
 was so very cold I had decided to not go and so happy about that.  He and the friend froze. 
 I on the other hand had company over.  My sister Nina and her husband David came 
over for a visit.   Their visits are usually short and sweet.  Not more than two hours. 

 Would not have minded a little longer visit, but on the other hand I don't like prolonged 
visits either.  Once Arvid had some friends over when just would not leave.  It was already 
very late.  I got upset and kicked them out.  Maybe not my best moment, but on 
the other hand no one should overstay their visit. 
 Arvid and I laughed about it today.

While Arvid was out freezing to death at the Blues Festival I went to the movies after my
 sister and husband left.  The movie was 50 Shades of Grey.  I read the books.  Can't say
 I was extremely crazy about them but still was curious as to what the fuss was all 
about.  I went to see the movie and I was terribly bored.  The best thing to me 
was Dakota Johnson.  Yes, daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson.  
 We're it not for her it would have been a total waste of my time.

Going there on my own and on Valentine's Day drew a little attention especially because
 of the type of movie I was going to see.  Could care less.  I had something to eat which
 was pretty good and I had something called Forbidden Fruit to drink.  Have to say 
the movie may have not been great, but everything else was very good.

Yesterday Arvid was a bit hungover from the night before so we had a late start.  After a 
couple of hours he was up to speed again as he likes to say.   Though a very cold 
start of the day...in the 40's, it warmed up.  Good dinner at one of our 
favorite restaurants and the day was complete.

Back home we watched movies, some Hockey and cuddled up next to Brutus who stole
 first Arvid's seat and then mine, but he was happy so that made us happy as well.  
Monday morning, for a change it is not as hectic as most Monday's are.

  Who knows maybe today we will have a "relaxing" Monday for a change. 
 Temperature is warming up.  Brutus still has the day off from his pill so all good here at home.

Beautiful day here already.  For those battling the cold weather all I can say is bundle up.
You guys are much braver than we are here.  In the 70's already and getting better.
Remember, visits always give pleasure..if not the arrival then the departure.
Happy Monday to all of you!  Make it an amazing one.

Hello Monday.

When was the last time you woke up and realized that today 
could be the best day of your life...
