Thursday September 8th ~

 Never regret a day in your life: good days give 
happiness,  bad days give experience, worst days 
give lessons, and best days give memories...

Sniff and I woke up, looked out the window and who was there? 
 None other than Mr. Squirrel eating all the bird seeds.  It's been a 
while since he has climbed up the deck for foodies.  This time I 
did not chase him right away.  I let him enjoy some nibbles.

The birds do keep me entertained.  Sometimes
 I believe  more than they do Sniff.  Arvid of course could
 care less.  Says he has enough to do.  I tell him sometimes
 it's OK to take time and enjoy the little things
 in life instead of always being so busy.

No matter how busy I am, I always find time to 
enjoy a few of life's  pleasures.  Even when we were
 working almost 10 hour days at Almost Home, I made
 time to brush Sniff twice a day and to make sure all the
 birdies and wildlife were fed.  I makes me happy.

I now realize that I have also grown attached to my wildlife friends. 
 One day when we have to leave it will also be difficult for me,
 but I also know that we will be back every year, so that in a way 
makes it OK.  My PR kitties I will never see them again.

I do have my Sniff and he makes me happy.  I love him and
 thankful everyday that he came into our lives.  That being said, the
 other day I picked up my Lil Mysulf.  He has on Brutus' clothes.

  I tried to smell them but there was no longer any of Brutus'
 scent on them.  Suddenly I was back to grief in full swing.  I cried 
so hard that Sniff was scared.  I didn't/don't want Sniff scared.

As always it's good to be back home.  As I always 
say, No matter how far we travel the memories will 
follow in the baggage car.  Home is always best.

A few of the highlights from Greeley, Colorado:

We drove 12 hours and my most favorite part of the trip
 was our first evening at Rio Grande Mexican restaurant.

It's good to be back home.  No matter where we go home is best.  
Sniff lost not time is getting comfy.  We are all happy.

Remember how far you've come, not just how
 far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, 
but neither are you where you used to be...
