Friday May 15th ~

Stay positive.  Better days are on their way...

Being home all day long has made me come
 to enjoy being out in the balcony even more.  Before 
this Stay at Home order, I would just go in and out.  
Now we sit for hours, and it's not bad at all.

Just about everyday a new boat passes along. 
Keeps us entertained and quite happy.  Arvid continues
 policing the waterways, at least for us. Interesting.

Yesterday morning we saw a near collision.  
The diesel boat  (above)  that passes a few times every 
day almost crashed into the dock.  The driver of the boat
 had to do some fast thinking to avert the near crash.  
Kept us entertained for some time.  Happy Arvid.

Almost everyday we see this older gentleman speeding 
away in his yellow scooter having a blast.  Always ๐Ÿ˜‰
smiling, always happy.  We even met him during our walks, 
he stopped, and I just had to tell him how cool his scooter was.  
He said, "best thing I ever did" and sped away again๐Ÿ˜›

Of course Arvid later said to me, "when I turn 82 I
๐Ÿ˜ƒ want one of those." Who knows maybe I will get him 
one and we can enjoy a different phase of life together.

Arvid went to the Norwegian store the other day.
We had shrimp and I also made crab and lobster tails, 
the best part was the chocolate.  Of course I ate the entire 
thing in one sitting ๐Ÿ˜‚ To my defense, it was small.

Yesterday as usual was takeout day.  Arvid 
back to pizza ๐Ÿ•and I back to Thai.  He never gets 
tired of pizza, and as of right now I am not tired
 of Thai food. So both of us are happy ๐Ÿ‘

Sniff is still exploring the balcony a little everyday. 
 Unfortunately for him, there is some wind.  Not much, 
but enough to make Sniff run back in real fast ๐Ÿคท

You may not be able to control every situation and  its outcome,
but you can control your attitude and how you deal with it...
