So Begins Tuesday ~

It's all about finding the calm in the chaos...

I'm still battling the flu symptoms.  Fortunately it has not become the
worse as yet, but it is definitely irritating and though it tries to slow me down,
it has not succeeded as of yet. Happy for that.  Arvid has the sniffles,
but he says it's just minor allergies. Hope that's the case.

We have both been very lucky since coming to Missouri.  Neither of us
has had a major set back as yet with the flu or anything like that.

Hotel business going well.  No complaints there.  Weather could not be
more perfect, and communication between us and Nirvana in Puerto Rico
 is getting a little better.  At least once a day she manages to
 send us a little message.  Happy and grateful.

Yesterday our friend from Fort Lauderdale came to visit us.
He will be in Branson for a few days and we will be showing him
 a around a little.  Last night we brought him home, had a little nibble and
 of course Arvid could not resist to tempt him with some of the
 items he has for trade.  An interesting few days it will be.

Like everywhere else, the stores are full of pumpkins and everything Halloween.
I have had as mentioned before, Halloween candy in my office since mid September.
  Little early, but it sure seems to go fast.  Just have to keep restocking.

As this day begins, rain is in the forecast.  Truth is we can do with some rain
 right now.  It's been a long time since we have had some.  My surviving tomato
 trees sure can use some watering.  I'm not good at doing it, but at the same
time the tree seems to survive on its own.  I checked on it yesterday and I
 have probably a little over 30+ cherry tomatoes on it.  I did put some
water on the tree, but I am sure it is thirsty for more.  So rain, please come.

To all a very good day.  Our days are good.  Not a day goes by
that I don't miss our Brutus and think of him.  On the 5th it will be one year and
11 months Brutus has been dead.  One year 7 months Shadow dies.

Life did not stop, but a part of my heart will never be the same again.
 My Brutus took a big part of it.  We love our Sniff Sniff, but Brutus took my heart.

A new day begins and we always keep moving forward.

In my life I have lived, I have loved, I have lost, I've missed, 
I've hurt, I've trusted, I've made mistakes but most of all I have learned.
Do not judge my story by the chapter you walked in...
