Friday in Sweden ~

Happiness is not something readymade. 
It comes from your own actions...

Lykke er ikke noe som allerede eksisterer. 
Den skapes av dine egne handlinger...

We have been on the move for so long, and it is not done.  
As long as we are in Norway there is always something.  This
 "vacation" is wearing us out. Thank goodness that on Wednesday 
we had a day "off"  Now we are rested to continue "running"

I just wish I could be home.  In my own bed.  
My own space.  Norway is a beautiful country, but it's not 
for me.  No matter how much I try, I just can't seem to get the 
dreariness of it all shaken off.  Thankfully we have good 
times with the family.  That makes it all worthwhile.

Arvid at the end of the day is Norwegian.  This is his
 homeland and he has all his family ties right here.  It's 
only natural that he feels more at home here than I do.

For me the language barrier is a big thing especially 
since I cannot communicate with our granddaughters.  
They understand English, but at the same time, they are shy
 to actually speak it with me.  I can always hope.  It will be
 faster them learning English than me Norwegian.

Sniff is home, and Brandy says he's missing me because
 he has not eaten his wet food in a few days.  I really miss
 him, but try not to think about it too much😔.  He makes the
cutest faces.  This was him hearing Arvid making noises.

Today we have some more time with Michelle and family. 
 Always good.  Our granddaughters are just a pleasure to
 be around and we look forward to having them stay over
 with us soon.  Meanwhile, back in Florida, Florida Highway 
Patrol (FHP) enters the annual "best looking cruiser" contest.

A good day to all and a good weekend.  Time goes by fast,
 soon we would have been here for two weeks already.

There's only one thing more precious than
 our time and that's who we spend it with...
