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.

It was a cold and windy morning. I slept in and then went grocery shopping. I stopped at the antique booth so that I could bring in a few things I left outside as the rain was really really coming down. I got some more plants out and then came home to a message than an afternoon appointment was c...
It was a a nice day yesterday and I took the afternoon off. And so today it is the beginning of my new week. I am busy and have a lot to do before my trip at the end of next month. It is always hard to get ready before a trip. The older I get the less I have in my reserve tank and so I have to re...
It is Monday afternoon and I am now home just being. My dogs are here and I will soon have lunch and then do nothing for the first time in weeks. I had a busy morning and the idea of no schedule this afternoon is so appealing. I hope you are having a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day.
The pizza place in my area has moved from a Main Street location to a side street with no parking. I went last night wondering why mess with a good thing for a bigger location? The new location was formerly a kitschy kind of place with an expensive menu and not much service and they failed.The ap...
Shopping for antiques and collectibles is something I enjoy but I am done in. I went all over yesterday and many sales just weren't worth the time and the drive. I found a few things but I have decided I need to be more selective hereafter. I always avoid ads that highlight children's things and ...
I feel like I am lost. I don't really know which way to go but I will give it a shot. I don't like the way I have to travel but I need to get to the end so I am taking this road for now. I will reevaluate things in a month or so and then decide whether or not I can continue to go in this directio...
I am dealing with changes that I don't like or want. Life is complicated and I will survive. Tomorrow I have some heavy lifting to deal with and this will be ongoing. Yesterday I did not act in haste. Today, I am taking action after some thought. I am really looking forward to my vacation next mo...
I am having one of those days. The specifics don't matter but my reality today has not been affirming. I am old enough and experienced enough to know that sometimes the best thing to do about these kinds of days is nothing. And so I will be in my garage cleaning up some of the things I purchased ...
It isn't easy to put sod down but I am finished now. It comes in ten foot pieces and it is heavy. I mentioned earlier that it is surprising that it is actually cheaper than grass seed, but an ordeal to get and lay down. I think it is generally thought that it is expensive because if you pay someo...
I have a lot of work to do today. Last year my old plumbing had to be replaced and my yard was dug up. It was heartbreaking to deal with. I couldn't find a local place to purchase sod, so I found a farm and got it there. Ironically, it was cheaper than grass seed. The hardest part was cleaning my...
