Hello Tuesday...

Attitude is everything.
Life is full of surprises, so you may as well get used to it...

April 5th. What were the odds that both Brutus and shadow died on the 5th.
Today is 5 months since my Brutus has died. 5 months that and there has not been a
day that I do not miss him and wonder why.  5 months that life changed for me.

 My Brutus, no matter where I go in life, what we do and who we have in it;
you my Brutus will forever remain my baby and the kitty I ache for.

Today also marks one month since little Shadow died. This death has me agonizing
 because of the way he died. I have not been able to take the clothes out of the
 dryer without freaking out.  Yes the dryer terrifies me because I can't stop
feeling the heat when I open it. I just can't stop thinking.  It is always
 so hot.  I feel that heat and my heart screams and screams.

Arvid and I have been keeping ourselves busy.  More like he's been doing his best
 to keep me occupied.  Arvid is so good to me. I never take that for granted, and yes
 I do let him know.  He is always there to hold me and comfort me.

Our Sunday was relaxing and quiet. After dinner we walked to the beach and ended up
in one of our favorite ice cream stores. Kilwins.  Even Arvid eats ice cream there.
  Was a delicious outing one we both like and look forward to soon again.

I also had some time to wander around the beach and let the ocean breeze take me
away to a place far away a place where everything is relaxed, calm and for those
 minutes me and my thoughts had some time to ponder.  Always good.
 Arvid does not like to get sand on his feet.  I love it.  Feels good.

Yesterday we did some boat work.  Funny thing is that when I told my friend from
India what we were doing she replied: Y do U do boat?  Servants or cleaner boys won't do eh?
 Made Arvid and I smile.  Makes you see how different our worlds are.  She is always
upbeat and I always admire her positive attitude towards life.  Thank you PK.

The day is good.  Lots of sunshine.  This morning Sniffer drank water from Arvid's glass.
Always a first time for everything.  Arvid of course thought it was too cute.

 Hoping for a calm day.  Last night was rough for me, but I know that there will be
 days like this.  You take the good with the bad and you make the best of it.
  Always with a positive disposition.  I'm ready to face the day.

To all, keep your face always toward the sunshine,
  and shadows will fall behind you.  Happy Tuesday everyone.

Life is a bowl of cherries. Some cherries are rotten while others are good;  its your job
 to throw out the rotten ones and forget about them while you enjoy eating the ones that are good! 
There are two kinds of people: those who choose to throw out the good cherries
 and wallow in all the rotten ones, and those who choose to throw 
out all the rotten ones and savor all the good ones...
