Urgh it is 6:30am and its time to get up

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX All Executives

Ah, you thought I was getting ready for work, well I was out for my morning walk at 6:30am with a temperature of 50degrees. (Trying to loose 15lbs before I am 39ish)

Looking at the weather report on my Iphone, I saw that today was going to have a high of 80degrees. Why wouldn't you want to move to Tucson?

The sun was peaking over the Catalina Mtns and I was listening to the birds chirping and watching the cotton tail bunnies cross my path. Wild yellow poppies are starting to bloom surrounded by purple wildflowers along the road sides. Part of me wanted to sing "The hills are alive with the sound of music..." and I pictured myself like Julie Andrews at the top of the hill singing and twirling but I snapped back into reality and knew that, in Tucson, that isn't such a good idea lest you want to be covered in cactus thorns. :)

As I walked to the tunes of various artists and genres I was watching the cars pass by me. It made me remember how blessed I am to be in this business. I love that I can make my own schedule and routine and I was not like all those drivers who got up at  6:30 to get ready for work and were on their way into their offices, sometimes little cubicles where they will be for the rest of the day.

I was walking in my office...want a tour? I will show you around and you will want to move here too.

I understand what you are saying on weather.  It is the same type of weather today in Myrtle Beach South Carolina.  Sunny, high 60's.

Victoria and Jeremy, you want to know what it WASN'T here today? SUNNY and 60 or 80 degrees! Actually it is not that bad today up in Washington, it is pretty clear and it will be in the low 50's, which is much better than yesterday when it was driving rain and low 50's. I do agree with Victoria though, that is the best thing about this biz. I get to get my kids ready and drive them to school and make my own schedule. We are all blessed!

Hi Victoria.  It sounds nice.  What a great way to start your day.  Good luck on the weight loss goal.

Keep Rocking,

Victoria....you make it sound so nice!!! But, as I look around on this frozen tundra we call Minnesota, I wouldn't trade you.  You see, I have a bit of a different walk than you do, as I bundle up into the "fresh" morning air that is nipping at the unprotected skin.  It's warm this morning, nearly +20 without the wind.  I stroll stumbling carefully throuhg the woods on the trails that the deer make.  It's peaceful and no other humans in site, I am one with nature.  With the ground frozen I am able to walk through the wetlands and see what is unseen much of the year.  Occasionaly I will spook a deer and the wild turkeys are always around.

Come spring, when the weather wams we see the world come to life.  We have 10,000 lakes plus thousands of miles of rivers to explore.  The outdoor recreation in nearly unlimited.

Now for those wanting the indoor life....just run to the twin cities and it will takes you months to see all the fun stuff their.

In some ways I hope you are able to get more people to move to your locale...as it will leave mine in the pristine manner we all love up here.
