A Cold Wednesday...

  The other day a man asked me what I thought was the best time of life.  
"Why," I answered without a thought, "now"...Learn from yesterday, live for today,
 hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning....

I woke up at 4am this morning just laying in bed  trying to go back to sleep but, the 
terrible nightmare that woke me up in the first place just kept playing over and over
 again in my head.  What a terrible way to wake up, all scared, sweaty and
 breathing hard.  Not a pleasant experience...but like someone said "I
 have had dreams, and I have had nightmares. I overcame the
 nightmares because of my dreams"  Let's hope so.

At that very moment I heard Sniff trying to "break" into a cabinet or something.  
I woke up smiling and all nightmares were forgotten. There are few things
 in life more heartwarming  than to be welcomed by a cat.  There was a time
 when Brutus would come to me when I had a nightmare and just lay by
 my side.  Today Sniff does that.  After he makes a racket of course.

On another note things are shaping up in our home.  We constantly have things to
 do and take care of.  We are used to condo living, so being in a house is quite 
different. For now we will enjoy it until we go back to our condo lifestyle. 

 Suddenly the place is starting to look and feel differently.  Soon I guess I will 
call it home for a while.  Strange but, I am sill having a little hard time living here. 
 I still miss the conveniences of having everything close by and just running 
out as I wish.  Now it's cold; it sure is a little different living here. 

They say it may snow either today or tomorrow, but from where  am sitting it is nice
 and warn.  I don't see snow.  Could be OK, but Arvid and I really aren't ready for it.
  Not right now.  We have no snow tires.  Good morning everyone.  Bundle up.
 Stay warm.  Hot chocolate kinda day and always some stuff to do.

Every man dies - Not every man really lives....Don't let the past steal 
your present...Don't let yesterday use up too much of today...
