Good Morning Everyone..

It's really nice to wake up in the morning realizing that
 you have been given  another day to live...

I arise in the mornings torn between a desire to improve the world and a 
desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

Good morning everyone.  Hope your weekend has been good so far.  Busy day
 yesterday with a little fun outings and some work.  Waking up to some cloudy weather 
which I hope will not last all day long. Either way it will be a good day 

No day for me is a good day unless it starts with my cafe, and today is no exception. 
 With Arvid still in bed it's just Sniff Sniff me, and a good cup of cafe to begin the day.

Mornings with the kitties are always the best part of my day.  I loved my mornings with
 Brutus.  Nothing will compare to those.  Then came Shadow.  Our mornings was me 
giving him foodies on the counter top.  He loved his chicken.  Sniff is a sleepy head, but 
he also loves when I give him soft foodies, but he does not rush to get out of bed.

I have been having the blues these last few days.  Not a day goes by that my thoughts don't go 
to Brutus and Shadow.  I will not lie, I miss my Brutus a lot.  I wonder how Shadow would
 have been with us had he had a chance to grow up.  I see Sniff and my heart fills with 
love for him, but I still can't stop missing my Brutus.  I love Chicago, and I am having a
good time, but something is missing.  Something small and furry.  Brutus.

Even so I am grateful for every new day.  I am grateful to wake up and see the sunrise.  
To have Arvid and Sniff by my side.  To know that I can count on my family and friends, 
especially Anna who is always there with some cheerful anecdote for me.  I love you
 Anna and my life is always better with you in it.  Thank you for your daily cheer 
me ups.  They always make me smile.  I'm actually smiling right now.

Hello all.  A new day begins and from where  we are it is looking to be pretty good.
Arvid and Sniff are already awake.  Sniff had playtime with the laser mouse,
 ate his soft foodies and is once again napping.  Life of a cat...

Greetings to all from beautiful Chicago.

I continue to smile each day because life is simply 
way too short to cry of anything that's worthless..
