Piano recital, a leopard, an audit, and a Birthday!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

What a week - and I’m missing my Rain time.  We’ve been to Bend, and back, for a granddaughter’s first piano recital and a grandson’s first play. Needless to say, the family (kid) time put us both in a festive mood. Today is my husband’s birthday, and the celebration continues at home. 

Skyler The Carol of the Bells with Miss Margaret on the pedals. 



The mighty leopard ponders his next move. 


Not even a routine audit from the Washington Department of Licensing can put a lid on our joy. Although admittedly, news of the audit did come close. Needless to say, we’re busy as elves around our office to ensure the files are all in order. The audit is Friday, and then it’s clear sailing until Christmas.



Hopefully, I’ll be able to sneak some time to pop in on your blogs and see what been up to lately. Happy Wednesday!

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Anita, it should. We are very well organized, however, it's always good to check, and then check again. It's like driving with a policeman behind you - you're a good driver, but still...

I've been to two school events for the grandbabies this week, and my grandson's birthday party, and today we are going to "Santa's Castle".  It's that time of year, and I LOVE it!
