Wednesday September 13th ~

The journey is never ending. There's always gonna be growth,
 improvement, adversity; you just gotta take it all in and do what's
 right, continue to grow, continue to live in the moment...

 Yesterday both Arvid and I were at Almost Home. 
 Cleaning in preparation for todays inspection.  Arvid is usually
 more there because he works hand in hand with Michael our
 maintenance man, who by the way is doing a good job.  

As always I visit Andrew's garden.  Summer you
 can tell is coming to an end.  There are still tomatoes 
and other vegetables, but they are now dying out.

The office is also under control with Patricia so my
 presence is not that much needed, but when it comes for 
inspection it never hurts to have extra hands to help out.

Arvid has been working at Almost Home for months now. 
 He does not know when to say he's tired.  And not to brag, but he
 does it better than anyone else, he's a hands on man.  I have learnt to 
listen to my body, but he pushes himself to the brink of  exhaustion.
  Hopefully after today things will quiet down and we will "fade" 
into the background.  After all, we are semi-retired now.

Work and you'll get what you need; work harder and 
you'll get what you want.  Hard work beats talent when talent 
doesn't work hard, and Arvid knows that better than anyone.

Halfway through the week we still have many things to 
take care of, but little by little it's all falling into place. Good
 morning and a good day to all.  It's soon inspection time.

Working hard is important. But working kind 
is just as important, and you've nailed both...
