My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires, 8 years ago. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Saturday in Buenos Aires

It is Saturday, much like any Saturday in the World.. or at least those parts of the world that I have been in.
You stay up later on Friday night because you know you don't have to get up early.
No appointments, nowhere you have to be.. then you wake up earlier than you need to.
Pup slept like a baby , it was a good nights sleep for all.
The sun is shining after a nights rain, which was good, it was a bit too dry here and dusty.
The fall flowers are watered now, the parks are shining again.
The skies here are amazing, all the time... either solid pure blue or with interesting clouds scudding by .. or the huge clouds that build and look solid and make me wish I could walk up there just to see how it would be ~

The noise in the streets is just a tiny bit less, some of those people are relaxing at home, shopping, enjoying themselves and not sitting at the light honking.
And some of them are out in the countryside, at a campo, relaxing, from all that honking they had to do to get out of town.

We walked with Pup to the vet and got his pain medicine and his vitamins.
Monday he will go for a echocardiogram.
After many kisses from the vet, we walked home, slowly, allowing for any and all sniffing and looking around.
He is now napping .. not far from the new toy and chewy that someone might decide to steal from him .. who would touch that soggy, gooey rawhide chewy is beyond me ! No one in this house, that is for sure !
While he naps, I am thinking a walk around the neighborhood , picking up gardening items and doing some dinner planning might be good ..
And of course, looking in the shop windows. Can't forget dessert !

And then there is the long distance birthday shopping that we are doing for loved ones in the US.
A busy day is shaping up !
