Happy Sunday ~

Life is made up of small pleasures. Happiness is 
made up of those tiny successes. The big ones come 
too infrequently. And if you don’t collect all these tiny 
successes, the big ones don’t really mean anything...

Every morning Sniff comes to the bedroom to wake 
me up and let me know it's time for his brushing.  Even before
 I have my cafe, I spend a good 5 minutes brushing him.  After that
 he wants his foodies.  It's a routine we have and I love love it.  Sniff 
is just so precious and he has made our lives so much better.

Yesterday Arvid and I celebrated 17 years of marriage.
 I decided to treat him to a day out on the beach.  We started
 out by having drinks from place to place.  I do not tolerate
alcohol too well so after the first place I was way
too tipsy, but it was our special day after all.

Nothing better than to start off the evening with
a Mojito on the beach. The beach is now full scooters.
 Maybe they were there before, but we have not been
 around for so long so I am just noticing them. 

California has them and Chicago has also had them for years now. 
You can rent it and just drop off wherever you like. The latest
craze.  No one has to walk anymore.  Yesterday,  Arvid
was also treated to his first Uber ride.  The driver was not
sure how to navigate through all the construction
going on so Arvid of course directed him.

Arvid's day so far is filled with soccer games.
 Three games. After the first two he said he was a
little tired watching TV.  I wonder why? 

Sniff follows him around like a little puppy.  Arvid loves it.
It's a beautiful and very warm day here in Fort Lauderdale.

 Soccer is about to be done and soon we will go and enjoy our
Sunday outing.  Life is always good when one stops looking
for all the things that can go wrong.  Just enjoy and make
 the most of it.  At least give it your best shot.

Wishing everyone a Happy Sunday and to
all the Veteran's a Happy Veteran's Day.

Happiness is not a station you arrive at,
 but a manner of traveling.  Even if happiness forgets
 you a little bit, never completely forget about it...
