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 is still dark and I will soon be meeting a stranger in a supermarket parking lot to get something I bought for my space at the Antique Gallery. I found this item on Offer Up and it is wood and large. It has three pieces and I believe with the seller I will be able to get it into my SUV. The gu...
I am learning a lot about copper pots. There are many at the Antique Gallery where I have a space. The prices vary greatly but the fine old ones, that are priced well seem to go quickly. Last night I found three more at home that I will be selling shortly. I will now have a small area dedicated t...
After a few weeks of hell being punished by a dishonest police officer I was in front of a judge yesterday. (I had previously appeared before a magistrate and prevailed but the state appealed) I was the only person in front of a criminal judge. He wasn't interested in anything I wanted to, or di...
When I want to get away and can't, I go to places with old things: museums, antique shops or visit with anyone I know who is older and interesting and listen to their stories. I like to read about places too, and sometimes will do that as well. Getting out of the present helps me appreciate the p...
Today is going to be difficult. I am anticipating having my head handed to me and I don't desrve it. I am both anxious and eager to have it over and to be able to get back to the mundane. Some days are just tougher than others. I really want to let it go. Soon.
My car doors were no longer responding to the key. I made adjustments inside and nothing worked. This morning I decided it might be the battery for the key so I went out to the garage in the monsoon that is here now and tried my second key. It worked. So I deduced the answer. I am proud of myself...
I am going to stay in today. After a night of freezing rain and 50-65MPH winds, I just think it foolish to push my luck. It continues to be freezing rain and excessive winds. Plans change and I have decided to be wise. Tomorrow I have a date I can't avoid but today I will do inside things and be ...
The day was just normal but I got so much done. Since there was no snow or ice I got my new lights in, moved the old ones, raked the gravel off what was my side yard, picked up about 50 rocks to keep folks from parking on my front flower bed and did my recycling. All in all it was very physical b...
It is a day. The sun is out, but tomorrow it will be scary cold with an ice storm forecast. Next week will be wet and windy too. I have an agenda that I am not looking forward to and it seems appropriate than the weather will be dangerous too. I have my fingers, toes, and arms crossed.
My gang of four will all be coiffed, cut and cared for today. Every six weeks they get a spa day and I am getting ready to take them to the Spa. It will be wonderful to pick them up after and discover their cleanliness and confidence. Like people they feel better when they are clean and coiffed. ...
