Friday ~

Holidays are about experiences and people, 
and tuning into what you feel like doing at that
 moment. Enjoy not having to look at a watch...

I love bottles and teacups.  No matter
 where I go, I always end up with a teacup.
 Arvid of course not happy about this. 
 Says we have no more room for them.

Just yesterday one of the people we do 
business with sent us 2 teacups.  Happy me, 
except the teacups have our last name 
on it.  Not crazy about that.

I also love walking around the mall.
 Especially now during the holidays.

 Everything is so beautiful.  Yesterday
Arvid took me out to lunch and after that we had
 a little trip to the mall.  Was a beautiful time.

Even Arvid got caught up in some Christmas Shopping.

Yesterday we also had some very bad weather.
Thankfully it was not as bad as the weather people predicted.
The truth is it never is, but they sure exaggerate a lot.
 When it is bad, somehow it is underplayed.

Yesterday I also spoke for over an hour with one of my
former tenants.  She now lives in Colorado.  She called me,
 and I was happy happy for the rest of the day.  I really miss that lady.
Talking to her took me back to Branson and Almost Home.

Life is good here in Florida, but every once in a while
I get flashbacks of Branson.  I miss being busy.  We are busy
here, but it's different for me.  I was running my own hotel
 and I loved every minute of it and I love everyone
that was there.  I do miss it and I do miss them.

Today is a new day.  Right now everything is calm.
The wind is not howling and the palm trees are barely
moving, unlike yesterday when I thought they were going
 to be ripped away from the earth.  Hopefully the iguana
 that was hiding in one of the trees made it to safely.

Doing the best at this moment puts you 
in the best place for the next moment...
