Every time we disparage the state of the economy and talk about the terrible state of real estate, we create a self fulfilling prophesy. It is my view that if we are positive, then positive things will happen. There are great opportunities in the market and it is time to stress the positive, and put a bow on it.

I had an appointment today. A man was coming to pick up some lamps I posted online. He contacted me for the last three days to confirm our appointment and make sure the lamps were still here. About an hour and a half before he was to come, he indicated he was called into work because three others...
Two weeks and a day ago today I adopted DD Beth to honor my Billy the Kid who died in July. DD had lost her owners to death and an assisted living facility that didn't permit pets. DD is 13. While I had three others in my gang, I thought DD and I could help each other heal from the losses we had ...
It is more than a play, in the Berkshires it is really frozen. Frozen from the temperatures, frozen from the snow and staying frozen with the winds. I got a lot accomplished yesterday, mostly on the phone but a lot nonetheless. I ordered meds and food for my gang, paid bills and did a little orga...
Well the winter has arrived in my neck of the woods. It was as high as 46 yesterday but today with the wind chill factored in, it feels like 12. That is a big drop and there was no easing in. I like seasons and I have said hello to this new one. So it is time to get the shovel out and prepare for...
I was never a girl scout but I do know about kindness and recognize it when I see it. Recently I adopted a senior dog from a rescue in southern Connecticut. The woman who runs this rescue is a very special person who lives generously and loves completely. She has made it her mission to help the t...
I am sure I am not alone in this but some days I run around so much it seems like my life is on the errand express. Yesterday was like that. Today I am going to catch my breath and do stuff in my home, and prepare for what may be the first snow storm of the season here. Fortunately my leaves were...
This morning I had an appointment to see a Doctor who would be doing a procedure on me later this month. I made this appointment in February in order to have the first appointment of the day. I have used this Doctor before to a hernia operation a couple of years ago. I confirmed the appointment m...
I know it isn't possible but I still wish I could dial my Mother's phone number and she could answer. I try to be forward looking and generally am, but every once in awhile I get melancholy for no particular reason and it stays with me. It happened last night and I was and am still pretty sad abo...
People will say I am lucky. I guess that is good, but I never really felt that way. I think I spent the first half of my life just going along day to day wondering what was next. Gratitude wasn't something I really understood or thought about much. I lived a little life and was pretty selfish ...
Soon a buyer will be here for some golden baskets I posted online. It is always good to sell directly and not have to mail. That said, I have a lot of things I need to liquidate from the inventory I acquired while I had a space at a local antique gallery. One item, like one day at a time.
