Be Happy ~

It doesn’t matter what day of the week it is. As long as 
we are together, it will always be a beautiful day...

Sunset yesterday from our balcony. 
Yes, we are loving being back home.

As I was working on my laptop, Sniff grabbed 
the opportunity to sit on it when I got up.  He loves laptops
 for some reason.  Every chance he gets he sits on it.

Yesterday as I was making lunch, some of the grease
 from the pan splattered, and went straight onto my face. 
 I now have 5+ burn marks on my face and the largest 
one is a big dot right on the center of my forehead. 

Not bothered by them.  Hopefully they will fade, 
otherwise I will just add them to the many scars 
I have already accumulated.  It is what it is.

Yesterday afternoon/evening we had our first walk 
since coming back to Florida.  As we were walking, 
we noticed a lot of new construction everywhere.

 Both Arvid and I looked at each other and said, 
"just like Chicago"  You can tell we always have Chicago
 in our minds, even though we are happy to be home.

In Florida we are experiencing higher than usual King Tides.
King Tides are technically called “perigean spring tides,”
 but they occur in both the spring and fall seasons.

 In fact, the highest tides in southeast Florida occur in the
 fall, in part because the water is warmer and the seasonal 
winds drive water levels higher at that time of year.

The streets are flooded in many areas.  Cars are flooded
 and people in some parts even use canoes to get
 around.  They say it is only going to get worse.

Yesterday "our" Azimut came back.  It's usually 
parked in front of our apartment from October to May.
  In May it goes home to Texas.  For now we will be 
enjoying the shenanigans of the "boat life"

It's still very early here.  Arvid is sound asleep 
as it should be.  Sniff is awake with me, just 
roaming around the place.  Everyone is happy.

 Good Morning! I hope your day is as positive 
as you are. Happy thoughts are the only cure for
 a sleepy morning… Nothing is impossible when you
 put your mind, heart, soul, and sweat into it.

Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster
 than one day at a time. Each day is a new opportunity
to live your life to the fullest. In each waking day, you will 
find scores of blessing and opportunities for positive change. 
Do not let your today be stolen by the unchangeable 
past or the indefinite future! Today is new day!...
