Feeling Grateful ~

I've been lucky. Opportunities don't often come along. 
So, when they do, you have to grab them...

Everyday I wake up I realize how fortunate we are to live where we do.  Sunshine just
about 365 days a year.  We are also fortunate that we have finally found the place we
would like to call home for many, many, years to come.  Let's say forever.

yesterdays sunrise.
Florida is where home will always be.  If Chicago were not that 
cold I would have loved to call it home.  Unfortunately, 
we no longer have our condo there, but that does
 not mean we can't go back and visit. 
For now, we love where we are.

The days are going by very fast, but  for me not fast enough.  I'm already
starting to miss regular foodies.  I can have lots of stuff, but that salt substitute thing 
is just horrible.  Rather go without salt than use it.  First time I tried it I almost puked.

Today is the fourth day of this "diet"  So far it has been easy to do,
But the weekend is coming soon.  Will just have to watch Arvid eat.
Eating out is going to be difficult.  I can have a baked potato with nothing 
on it.   Boring, but having Brutus entertain us sure make up for everything else.

Boring as it is, at least I can still eat. For that I'm happy!!
Yesterday it was ripe plantains and corn on the cob.

Awake again early.  Time to see the sky light up.
Here in Florida it is 6:30 in the morning.
Been awake with Brutus for about an hour.
Ready to capture the start of the day.

From where I stand, it sure looks like it's going to be another beautiful
day here in sunny Florida.  Wishing you all a good day.
Thirsty Thursday after all.  For some the weekend begins today.
If so, enjoy and remember everything in moderation and be happy.

The trick is to live a long time without growing old...
