And So Begins Another Friday...

Friday, the only decision you need to make is bottle or glass...

Here's to those who who's us well and those who don't can go to hell.  One of my
dads favorite quotes, and one he has taught us from the time we were little.
Hello all and so begins our Friday.  The fact that it's gloomy,
 windy and dark does not matter.  It will be a good day.

Friday.  Always something special about it.  Maybe because Arvid "quits" working
at 5 and we declare it officially the weekend?  Maybe somehow the stress
 levels drop and in seeps in plans of things to do that we won't normally do
 during our workweek. Yes, I love the sound of Friday and weekends.  

Yesterday I had an early start of the weekend. I took a trip to the mall and made a pit
 stop to Blue Martini.  Yes, could not resist it.  Just me, a few others and a drink
making it a perfect Thursday.  Afterwards I met with Arvid for lunch
at the food court.  I was already in the weekend mood.

  I had a good time and enjoyed watching the scantily
 dressed waitresses making delicious drinks.

Friday.  Fruit day.  Meaning Swap Shop.  Looking forward to my coconut and
 some of my favorite tropical fruit.  Can already taste it.  Last week I bought lots
 of coconut for my parents and sisters.  They love it and since they don't find
 it readily in their hometowns, I wanted to treat them to some.  

Sniff is good. Sleeps.  Eats.  Plays.  And "talks" non stop.  Love him and look
 forward to making memories that will last forever and that will fill some of the void
I carry with me. I miss my BRUTUS a lot.  When I shower I picture Shadow
 always waiting to catch the droplets as I step out of the shower.  He was
 something else.  Fast and always on the move.  A cutie he was

Nothing planned for today, but that's OK.  Really would not mind being home and
 relaxing a bit.  It has been a hectic week.  Lots of doctors appointments and
 lots of running around. On the bright side, I did manage to vote yesterday.
Yes, I feel good and am happy because I am the first one in
my family to have voted.  They all vote next week.

Arvid is busier than usual if that is possible.  The man does not know what it is
to take a break.  Luckily he has me to remind him of what it is like to take breaks,
 and to get out every so often.  We complement each other that's for sure.

Wishing you all a good Friday and a happy start of the weekend. Remember
 everyone, life is like a mirror, we get the best results when we smile at it.
Give it a try.  Truth is I sometimes have to remind myself of this also.

Always pray that you have eyes that see the best, a heart that forgives the worst,
A mind that forgets the bad, and a soul that never loses faith....
