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.

Today is a big day. Most people are celebrating Easter. I am not a Christian and so I will be working today at the Antique Gallery where I have a space. My area is big for visitors throughout the year but Easter is really the beginning of our heavy season. I expect it will quiet this morning but ...
I had a good day yesterday. I was out early with my gang to the "new" groomer. They love it there. So many dogs of every size, and they are happy all and hang out and play together. I have never seen anything like it. They hang out either behind the front counter or in the grooming room. I am luc...
Yesterday he was just hanging around on the roof of my shed. He seemed to be content and I watched and listened to him for some time before going for the camera. I never expected him to be still there once I came back, but he waited. I call this one Chirpi because he sings and is comfortable wher...
As I look out my window for the first time this season I see green grass. It makes me happy but today and for the next several days it will be overcast and rainy. It is the rain that makes the grass green so I will nod to Mother Nature and wait to get in the yard again.
The weather here was lovely today and so I swept my deck, and took my rug outside. I spray painted the wooden Adirondack chairs I have used in a couple of years. I put my clock outside in the back and cleaned a couple of flower beds. Finally I placed and plugged in my bug machine. Every little t...
Yesterday I wrote about Notre Dame and the sadness was palpable from almost everyone I spoke to as well. It is hard to see history disappear, but encouraging to watch so many in the world respond with graciousness, compassion, and generosity. As life moves along it is good to remember the greatne...
It happens every day. Someone represents one thing but their agenda is different. Jealousy is a dirty word but even a worse reaction to success. I thought this only happened at work but I was wrong. I saw this recently in another arena. At my stage of the game, I am not interested in playing game...
I was really taken back observing the fire at Notre Dame yesterday. Such a beautiful and iconic building is so badly hurt. And yes I was reminded of the World Trade Center collapses. It is hard to comprehend, watch and deal with. I can not imagine how the French are feeling.We get used to loss a...
I have wanted to paint a metal top table I bought this winter. The top is white and I decided on a greenish color for the front, back, legs and drawer. This morning I finshed it and it is now drying in the garage while it rains outside. Finishing projects feels really good.
The weather was nice and I had company from New Jersey. Friends came and we celebrated my Birthday and did some antiquing. My friends buy and sell as well so that was fun. I ate out more than I ever do in such a short period so I am happy to be back on a normal schedule. It is fun to have a break...
