snow: In all kinds of weather we keep it together - 02/04/11 08:56 AM
Wow, woke up this morning to a blanket of the powdery stuff and 22 degrees!  I was scheduled to meet with a seller in my community at 9am to go over the listing paperwork and get her husband signed as she was going to be off today. Her husband is in Singapore and needs me to get papers to him to sign electronically so I'm using Docusign (what would I do without it).  So in all kinds of weather we keep it together!  I put my boots and parka on and walked to her house!  It was fun snapping pictures along … (36 comments)

snow: A Miracle ~ The Austin Weather Predictions On Target! - 02/23/10 03:58 AM
Well the weather forecasters were right...we are getting snow in Austin!  I guess we were pooh-poohing the alerts as we would have to see it to believe it!   Now I know all you are snickering with your massive amounts of snow you received this winter, but, this is something for us in Austin.
When I got up at 5:30am it was raining and 39; by 7:45am it was 35 and snowing/sleeting.  Sitting in our office sales meeting at 9am we could see the large fluffy snowflakes coming down!  As soon as our guest speaker was finished I made a bee … (4 comments)

snow: Stature ~ Strength ~ Stability - 01/08/10 03:22 AM
 
I grew up surrounded by majestic trees dwarfing my presence.  In the summer they provided shade from the hot sun and in the fall their shadows would play games with me as the sun set. 
In winter they produced the quiet stillness layered with glistening snowflakes for me to admire.  Their stature gave me strength.  Their strength gave me stability and the lesson was re-enforced every season, year after year. 
Thanks big guys!

snow: Sleeping Beauty - 01/08/10 02:49 AM

"Rocky", my brother's dog, had a rough day romping in the snow drifts on one of their many frolics through the snow drifts out back of their home. 
Rocky is a member of the family in case you could not tell. 
It's time for a nap and even Rocky gets a blankie!This picture reminds me of a quote by Roger Caras:
"Dogs are not our whole life, but, they make our life whole."

snow: To Many A Winter Wonderland - 01/07/10 07:24 AM

This view out my brother's home in Pittsburgh is truly a winter wonderland.  We grew up in upstate N.Y. with a similar view and he rejoices in continuing the tradition of shoveling snow and romping in the snow with his family and dog "Rocky".  He has a love affair with skiing!Vesta M. Kelly once said:"Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but look what they can do when they stick together!"

snow: Solitude - 12/02/09 05:03 AM




My brother sent me this picture off his back deck in Pittsburgh.  I love the quiet peace he and his family get to enjoy even on a gray day!  



They love sunsets and time to reflect in solitude on their busy days so they purchased this home two years ago. This view is like a chameleon it transforms itself to reflect the different seasons.
