Friday January 27th ~

Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should 
avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing....

 Yesterday we had dinner at mom and dads.
  Always good to be with them.  Mom and dad may 
have to suddenly leave due to a death in the family.  
My cousin died on Tuesday in Orlando ❤.  

I come from a culture so very different than Arvid's.  
Most of the time I am really glad about that.  My culture 
is warm and inviting.  We care too much and sometimes that is
 also our downfall.  I don't say that Arvid does not care, but 
he does have the knack of compartmentalizing  easily.

It would make my life so much easier if I learnt to do this.
  I get to that eventually, but Arvid gets to it very fast.  That
 is how he deals with "stuff"  I can't say it's wrong. 
 It just does not work for me, sure wish it did.

Arvid and I went to "our" Swap Shop a couple of weeks ago.
  Something to check out.  What I "love" about Swap Shops
 is the fruit section.  Sadly this one did not have the specific
 fruit I am looking for.  In this case, I prefer the Swap Shop 
in Fort Lauderdale.  It has everything fruit wise 🍍

What "our" Swap Shop has are different little bars and 
restaurants.  This caught Arvid's attention very much and
 he insisted that he had to find the right place for him and my 
dad to have a few beers.  That he did and just like that Arvid is
 a fan of the Swap Shop.  Lots of beers on draft that he likes.

It will be  "cold" this evening.  Will most likely have to
 skip our Friday outing, but that can all change also depending
 on how we feel and if my Norwegian husband is willing 
to face the "bitter" cold as he calls it 🥶  He says
 he's not Norwegian anymore, but Floridian 🤔

Be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop.
You get in life what you have the courage to ask for...
