Just Having Fun....

Some people drift through their entire life. They do it one day at a time, 
one week at a time, one month at a time. It happens so gradually they 
are unaware of how their lives are slipping away until it's too late...

Arvid and I decided long ago to live for today and enjoy our lives to the fullest as if it
 were our last day here.  We have been doing this for a while, but since getting 
to Chicago we have been so relaxed and happy and we have realized that
 we do not need as much as we think we do to make us happy. 

 Here in Chicago we have a very small apartment.  It is enough for Arvid, Brutus and I to 
be happy.  The truth is, it will not accommodate guests.  Too small, but both Arvid 
and I have made a tiny exception.  No matter how small this apartment is, 
we will always have room for Danielle, my niece.  

Somehow she and Arvid have developed this special bond which of course makes me happy. 
 I love that he bonds with all my nieces and nephews.  Danielle is not shy to say what
 she thinks of anything, and of him.  I think that's what he enjoys, plus they have this
 betting thing going on with some games.  She beats him at  it then he practices
 until he can better her score.  Took him close to 3 years to better her scores.

  Of course now she told him to beware cause in just a few moves she will tumble him
 from the top again.  It's fun to see them together.  That's why Danielle has a spot 
here in our apartment in Chicago.  Yep!  He says "bring it on."

In Chicago, we have no car, we walk everywhere we want to go to and we are really
 loving it. We are located of course in the best location even if I say so.  Everything is within a
 few minutes walking distance.   For being downtown there is so much greenery and 
beautiful parks everywhere, and it is all just steps away from us.

We will of course have to one day return to Florida, which is also home but for now
 we are just having the time of our lives.....even Brutus is so relaxed.  

To everyone out there all I can say is no matter
 what enjoy life and live it to the fullest...

The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it...
