Simple Pleasures...

Life brings simple pleasures to us everyday. 
 It is up to us to make them wonderful memories...

Yesterday was market day.  We get a nice walk  getting there and once there I just go
 a little crazy enjoying all the fresh produce, bakery and more.  It's an absolute 
feast to the eyes and other senses.  Yes, it's another of our favorite outings 
here in the city.  It's the simple things that brings the greatest pleasures.

Playing with Sniffer is always a fun, relaxing part of our day.  Lately he likes chasing
 one of him many strings that before he just ignored.  Go figure.  Of course both
 Arvid and I play with him as much as we can.  When he's not playing he's
of course sleeping.  Last couple of days sniff has been sneezing.  Acting a little
 more quiet than usual.  Hopefully he will not get the flu or the cold.

Our walk yesterday took us to Navy Pier.  More specifically we made the walk just to
get to Ben and Jerry's.  I have always loved their Chunky Monkey ice-cream, and I have
now made it one of Arvid's favorite as well.  Yes, simple things makes one happy.

Wishing you all a very good day.  You know they say that
simple pleasures are life's treasures.  Definitely agree with that.

Already had an early walk and we were caught in heavy rain.  Hopefully
 tonight no rain.  We have a dinner date with friends to a Vietnamese Restaurant.
Looking forward to it since we have never had Vietnamese food.

Happy Friday everyone.  If you live in Chicago.  Stay dry.
Sniffer as you can see is not taking any chances with this wet weather.

The older I get the more I realize that I just need the simple things in life:
A comfy home, good food on the table and to be surrounded by people I love...
