The "Whale Tales" #16

Welcome to my 16th "Whale Tale". This one adresses a fairly new topic of my awarness and practices in Real Estate. New to me but not to

Debb Janes, EcoBroker Camas, Washington EcoBroker

You see, a few weeks ago I posted that my husband is back to building. As he applied for the permits for the new house he's going to build, he found out there are new requirements, as of 2012 New Construction must conform to be eco-friendly and energy efficient. With this he needs to hire a outside consulting firm, that inspects and assists into conforming with the requirements. When reading Debb's blogs, and getting to know her better, she embodies all there is to know about this subject. So inspired by her, this "Whale Tale" seems so fitting.

I hope you enjoy it!

 

In case you missed the rest.......

I couldn't wait to get home so I could open the latest Whale Tale. Can you do one every day please? :) I am so glad you pointed out the mailbox, there is so much detail you have to look at it many times so you don't miss anything. Jill is so right that you are going through a period of 'intense creativity'. And we are the lucky one for it. You never cease to amaze me!

Amy, I missed your southern voice, we can/will chat. And I love my audience her so I will keep creating them.

Donna, as does your determination, leave me speachless. It's all my pleasure!

Shar, I wish I could...not because of lack of ideas or will, but because my family takes so much out of me. I do have another 2 in my mind ready to go....you can count on one by next Friday. I want to email you what else I'm doing.

Laura, and you know I meant it, all you stagers set the bar for me.

Ellen, The only thing wrong with this beautiful Whale Tale for Debb, is that I can't see her as ever sitting still.  She does so much that you were lucky to catch her in this reflective pose, as she takes in all that is nature.  While looking at your drawing, I can easily imagine Debb's soft soothing voice in my head, as she verbally walks us through the surroundings and describes the moment, as only she can.  Outstanding!

Ellen, yes, I did notice the smile and sparkling eyes. I mentioned on my re-blog that a you were a good woman to draw me in such a lovely manner. I'm certain I've never looked better. :) 

Don't birds bring the mail to everyone's house? ( Adorable mail box)

Richard, she didn't sit still while I drew her, it was the video cam I set up in her bedroom to catch her while she was asleep...the time difference helps! Your next!

VB, you can understand how when you love to draw or paint, you love to share it too. Thanks!

Janet, This one flowed rather naturally, must have been the aespect of NATURE!

Patricia, Glad to see you back! As you can tell I am having fun doing these and all those here that inspire me are making it easier for me.

Debb, I did see your email after I commentd here, how could I miss your smile! Richard say he hears your soothing voice as he witnesses you in nature. It is so you, and I'm glad I could capture it!
