Lucky Me...

I live in Florida, and when people ask how close to the beach I am, I say, 
“Twelve minutes or twelve hours. Depends on which beach you want to go to...

I woke up very early this morning just so that I can go to the beach and watch the sunrise.
We live about 20 minutes walking distance to it and in car less than 5, and the truth is we 
never go there.  Recently I have become more and more interested in going there early 
in the mornings for the sunrise and late in the evenings for the sunsets.

For Arvid waking up at 5am is an ungodly hour.  Being an early riser
it was perfect for me.  Time to have my cafe, brush Brutus and see the
sunrise at 6:30 in the morning from the beach and the pier.  Perfect!

Sunset yesterday evening.  On the Pier by Aruba's beach Cafe right
within walking distance of us.  Honestly I do believe we are fortunate.

To everyone a very good morning.  I am on day 9 of this low iodine
diet.  So far i am not freaking out.  Occasionally I want to cheat, but 
I have not.  Not to my advantage.  Only thing I have not managed to 
cope well with is the aches and pains I am having.  Today I call the doctor
see if I can take a painkiller.  I am definitely NOT one to bear pain well!!!!

Meal times so far have been good.  As much fruit as I like.
I always have popcorn handy to snack on and when eating out, I carry 
my own spices and I also pack a few extras to add to my salad.  My two containers
contain shucked corn on the cob and fresh ripe mangoes.  Overall pretty delicious and tasty!

For now have a good day everyone...

A simple life is good with me. I don't need a whole lot.
For me, a T-shirt, a pair of shorts, barefoot on a beach and I'm happy..
