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 am working today at the Antique Gallery where I have had a space for about two years. The owner is moving the place and did not tell me, one of her four working vendors until I found out on my own and asked her. So this is my last month and I am liquidating and business has been lousy. I have s...
This morning is sunny but cool. It is a gorgeous day after another night of heavy rain. The air is fresh and the day has promise to be just perfect. I did a lot of heavy lifting yesterday. My space at the antique gallery is now about half empty and my garden is as well. Things that are beautiful ...
Yesterday morning I looked out my window and saw about 100 ducks in my driveway. I have a pond about two houses away. When I went to grab my camera and opened the door all but about 10 flew away. Nonetheless, it was pretty exciting and I did get a couple of shots.
Yesterday I was looking to get a second pair of progressive glasses online. I thought if I could do FaceTime it would be easier. Long story short, I have yet to order the glasses but I did manage to screw up my MacBook Air. So this morning I called Apple support. Apple support is just the best. T...
I was busy all day in the garden and outside the shop where I have antiques. There is a lot to do this month to get ready for a full liquidation by the end of September and to ready my property for the winter. I am up and out early everyday and get a great deal done before most are even up. I jus...
I would not describe myself as a positive person. I try and stay away from negativity and negative people but that doesn't always translate into being positive. This morning I was thinking about all I have to do this month, how time in passing and how I really don't have enough time to get it all...
I am a type A personality. It is hard for me to sit still even if I am working. I was out and about doing errands early this morning. I finished by noon and was home to do paperwork. I was about half way done when I heard it was going to pour again tomorrow, and so I went out to the front lawn ...
I had many many things to do this morning: both personal and professional. I was out early and I am now home, in and ready to tackle paperwork that I have postponed for weeks. It is going to be nice today after the downpour of last night. I may even start to bring some plants in. So my day is set...
The Tanglewood season ended yesterday. I have a lot to going on in my real life and in my and around the yard but for now, I am home and happy. That is the magical thing about being home: it is generally our special, comfortable and inviting place where the world is not, or can not hurt us. There...
For the last two years I have had a space at a local Antique Gallery where I work on Sundays. This is coming to an end for me this month. The owner is moving and didn't tell me. I no longer feel good there, and once trust is gone , for me it is over. Because I didn't know she was moving the busin...
