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 a straight forward person. I pay my bills as soon as I receive them and I like to be billed promptly. I have found lately many service providers are adding "miscellaneous fees" onto their bills. When I inquire about these charges I am advised that they are for "rags and such". Excuse me? Isn...
Life is not stagnant, it flows and changes and so do the circumstances. So when my boss called and advised that I had reached my hourly limit I wasn't surprised, but I was disappointed. I don't want to work full time. I do however want to be engaged and active in a place I like with people I resp...
I had pizza, salad, soup and chocolate cake last night. It was perfect. I hadn't enjoyed pizza et al at my favorite local place since returning from Kenya, more than a month ago. It was so nice to leave my house and enjoy a basic for me. My friend drove and then...it was over. So glad to be in ag...
Good morning. It is snowing lightly here in the Berkshires and I am in looking at it. I haven't felt well for about a week now but it is impossible not to be joyful watching the snow fall so beautifully. There are so many things about which we have no control and clearly the weather is one. For m...
There may be sunny days to come, but not today. There may be really busy days in my future, but not today. There may be errands to run, but not today. Essentially I am in and relaxed and going to spend the day doing little. I haven't been feeling well for about a week and I give in. The best way ...
You know the feeling when you have been ill and then you shower and things are better if only for awhile. So that is where I am this morning. I am done with being ill. I will tolerate it for as long as it lasts but not be a slave to it any more. I think I turned a corner.
My cold is is full bloom and my cough is pretty bad too. Last night I took what I thought was a cough medicine I had left from a Dr.'s appointment last year. I had returned from Ecuador and Peru where I was sick. I'm pretty sure it was altitude related and while I needed a Dr. there in order to b...
It has been a long day and I am very much looking forward to the evening. There may be some snow and I really enjoy that. I went out earlier and bought some soup so that should be very special too. I'm having a good day that I believe will turn into a good evening. I hope yours is good too.
I like to participate in challenges and do so when I can. This one is beyond my pay grade though. Without being political, and I could certainly go there, this is an absolute crap shoot. No one really knows what the impact of a new administration filled with unknowns or too knowns will be. I wish...
I'm home, I'm warm and I'm out of the rain. I'm nursing a cold but happy to be safe with my pups, sitting by a fire and knowing I have a meal to eat later. As I have grown older I am happy to just be. I wish I had learned this earlier but at least I get it now. Have a good evening all.
