Chilly Start Of The Week...

The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change 
his future by merely changing his attitude (I'm trying)...

New week.  New beginnings and a chance to make it better than the last.  Always something 
I strive for just like everyone else I'm sure.  Last week had it's very good days and for
 that I am grateful.  Was happy to be able to spend a few days with my sister, and 
her husband.  The best part is that we will be seeing them soon again. 

Come March we are going to North Carolina to visit my parents.  Nina and David will also 
be there.  I am grateful for that.  Grateful that Arvid thought it was a good idea for us to be
 going then and of course happy that we are.  Anytime I see family is a good time.

Waking up to an VERY cold morning.  Today my friend Liliana will be coming over for
 lunch.  I always enjoy her company and it's been a while since we last gt together.  She's 
busy,  I'm busy, but happily we both have the time today.  As always making quite
 a few things for her.  All left overs will be hers. Every one's happy.

Yesterday Arvid and I tried out a new place for our Sunday outing.  We went to Margaritaville
in Hollywood.  It's a favorite spot of ours when in Las Vegas so we thought it would
 be a good place to go to since sitting outdoors was not an option for us.  Too cold.

Woke up early this morning trying to cuddle with Shadow to keep him and I warm, but
he still does not like being held.  Brutus of course was the opposite.  He loved snuggling
 up to Arvid and I all the time, but even more so on a cold day like today.  I miss him so much.

Today calls for Arvid's specialty.  Hot chocolate on a cold day.
They do say that hot chocolate is like a hug from the inside.

Happy Monday all and let's make this an awesome week!

I will go days without seeing you, a life time actually,
 but not a second goes by that I don't think of you.  Mama misses her Brutus.
Happiness. Simple as a cup of  hot chocolate or
 tortuous as the heart. Bitter. Sweet. Alive...
