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 enjoying this beautiful morning because I can. The sun is shinning brightly and the wind has abated. Spring is coming and snow or no, I am happy to be alive and grateful for what the day will bring. I think it is a good day to go to the Goodwill shop, donate and purchase both. Oh the treasur...
I went for pizza last night. Pizza is a treat where I live, and I felt like I deserved it for the last couple of weeks I had lived through. A waitress I like but hadn't seen recently, was our server. We usually talk beyond the order and I had a sense that something was different and so I asked he...
It's been a tough several days. I was sick and then there was the blizzard yesterday. In the middle of the storm I lost my plumbing after dealing with these issues within the last few months. Clearly no one was coming out in the storm. Today the people came and had to come back with the right equ...
I thought I was ready. I had a shopped the day before and had plenty of food and treats for myself and my pup gang. It was colder, more snowy and windy than I expected. Actually it is true now too. Anyway, I needed to shovel a path on my deck for my pups and then clear a small area below. I did t...
Yesterday afternoon was cold but not as windy as it had been. The sun was out and the day was good. Today it is, as it was predicted to be, a real blizzard with heavy snowfalls and 35+ winds and almost no visibility. I took this photo yesterday: So here we are are today, not even 18 hours later....
So I went grocery shopping yesterday in advance of this "once in a century storm." Even though "senior day" is Tuesday, the store gave the discount on Monday. That was a nice surprise. But the thing I noticed the most was that everyone had flowers. Perhaps we were all craving spring and this stor...
Well I'm home after going grocery shopping in anticipation of what now is being called a blizzard for western Massachusetts. It is hard to believe because the wind has died down and the sun is now out. That said the local schools will all be closed, the food stores have announced they won't be op...
Well it is pretty certain now that there will be a Nor'easter here in western Massachusetts tomorrow and into Wednesday. I haven't done any grocery shopping in awhile and so today I think it is time to stock up: mostly on comfort food and dog treats. I'm looking forward to working in my yard, as ...
I'm easy, I like winter and I enjoy snow. The frigid temperatures of this past week, the excessive and continually blowing winds will soon be joined by a lot of snow. My birds are plentiful and they never left, but now they have had it. This morning this one said it best, " OK, where is spring."
I have been sick all week and each day the weather worsened. Today it is bitterly cold and windy. The base temperature this morning was 2 but with the winds it feels like -19. I'm not leaving my house but the skies are blue and my view is terrific. There is a major storm coming and I am happy to ...
