Out of the Rain and Into the Mystic...Rocking Our Gypsy Souls

Real Estate Broker/Owner with MoonDancer Realty, Dillsboro,NC NC# 218097
After a weekend of non stop rain since Saturday afternoon, you'd think we'd be all bummed out. But, you'd Allman Brothers Band coverbe wrong. We did have a good time at the Greening Up the Mountains Festival in Sylva on Saturday seeing all kinds of friends out doing the same thing. In spite of the torrential downpours yesterday, I had a good day of showing property and still had several hours for good stuff.  So, I think it seems safe to say we are pulling out of the rain and into the mystic.
There are several projects I'm working on...continuing to work towards the IMSDesignation (Internet Marketing Specialist) and the inclement weather allowed me to finish homework that I've had to put off while real estate cranks up. I also have a new obsession...hooping. That's right, hooping as in hula hooping. A friend, Kelly Jewell-Timco made me two beautiful new hoops. One is sparkly, deep blues and purples and weighted with water. The other is smaller and used for hand hooping. What a great workout and fun at the same time. Since I couldn't hoop outside because of the weather...well, I guess that's what basements are for! In addition, we treated ourselves to the Rosetta Stone Spanish course for Christmas and it was gratifying to have some time to devote to that as well.
Being home for the better portion of the day also allowed me to continue the pursuit of the "perfect" black beans and rice recipe. I think I came very close. The trick is to not be afraid of adding too much cider vinegar. It gave just the right tang that I was looking for.
So here we are on Monday. It isn't raining...that's a plus. We've even been told by the weather guy that we can expect some sun this morning and temperatures near 70. Of course, that means a good possibility of rain and thunderstorms this afternoon, but even that is exciting and a little more satisfying than just relentless rain.
The Allman Brothers sound seemed like a perfect fit for today. We're out of the rain and into the mystic. Have a great week everyone.

Hi Mona,

Good musical choice this fine Monday morning.

I hope you achieve your goals of the Internet Marketing Specialist.

I still am in pursuit of more and more education. There are some days I feel I don't know anything. LOL

Have a great day in Dillsboro.

Best, Clint McKie

Good morning Mona. Sounds like a very busy weekend and a productive one as well. Enjoy the morning and the storms this afternoon. Music is good, thanks.

Hey Mona,  Rain good, better then snow.  We are in for 79 today but a high of 36 on Wednesday and snow in the yard they say.  I got lucky and finally made a half million points this morning.

Mona, it sounds like you made good use of your time with the rain. Sometimes finding down time is difficult when we are busy. Good luck with that designation and cooking is good any time.

We have to take that catch up time where we find it.  I love the Allman Brothers, but I much prefer the Van Morrison version of that one song.

Good grief, Mona ... do you ever sit still??  I have the feeling even if that answer is yes ... your mind is never still ...

Enjoyed the music, as always ... stay dry!

Hi CLint, glad you liked the music.  Thanks for the good wishes on IMSD...there's many a time that I feel like I don't know near enough.

Sheila, it was soggy and productive.

Will, CONGRATULATIONS on the 500k mark.

Gary, finding down time is difficult whether we're busy or not!

Tammy, you are the second one to mention the Van Morrison version.  I'll listen to it next and post to fb.

Gene, the short answer is NO.  Well, when I'm asleep I think I'm fairly still.  Glad you liked the music.

Hi Mona~ Love your Monday Music videos. This seems to be the right choice for your circumstances in late April. Would love to know how you feel about the IMSD designation. Are you learning some good stuff?
