This has been an unsettled summer for me. My friends know I like nothing more than spending time in my garden or sitting outdoors on a warm summer day. But this summer, that was not to be.  My neighbor decided that he needed an "improved" back yard. Curse you HGTV! So, beginning in May the work b...

This morning, on my Facebook sidebar, an ad appeared for a local Spokane architect, Sam Rodell.  It enticed me to click because it showed an image of a small, sustainable house . . .definitely an interest of mine.  I was a little disappointed when I arrived, however,  because most of the featured...

It is 10:30 p.m. on the fourth day of the 31 Days of May challenge . . . it has been a long day and I just sat down to write my daily blog.  I am determined to see this through even if I have to write my grocery list and call it a blog!     Speaking of groceries, I DO have something to write abo...

  The media seems intent on convincing the American people that the real estate market is dead, maybe forever!  I’m not sure what their motivation is, but perhaps it might have something to do with bad news selling.  Or maybe if they can convince us that our homes are worthless, they are creating...

Those who know me well know that I am a farm girl at heart even though my current “acreage” is a mere city lot.  I often step off the porch on a warm Spring morning to pull a few weeds and pinch a few flowers only to find myself going back indoors at 4:00 covered with dirt and happy as a pig in ...
