It is a good feeling to spend a lot of money and feel that you got a ton of value for it.  Home owning can sometimes be expensive...there, I said it!  It's called general maintenance and sometimes to protect your asset you've got to spend money.  It isn't always something to do with p...

Funny how it takes careful planning to do what you want to do, when you want to do it when we work in real estate.  We careen from appointment to appointment but we do have the luxury of scheduling in "appointments" to take advantage of fun or necessary private time. Oh yeah sure...the ...

    Waiter, waiter, percolator.... An added benefit from a recent closing was the inheritance of the sellers 40 year old percolator and I've fallen in love all over again with coffee! Everything is more special with that little pot. I love the ceremony and the preparation of the drink. I love...

   Funny how the act of doing something very simple can create a very complex chain of thoughts which causes moments to be enriched. This morning when I walked the dogs it wasn't that cold according to the thermometer, 31 degrees. Of course, the gale force winds weren't taken into consid...

    With the exception of dogs that wake up early, my day never starts the same way twice and that is one of the best parts of a professional career in real estate. The adrenalin never really ever relaxes.   Today, the day started with a response to an initial email to a prospective buyer that th...

This is what I started my Monday off with. If you are doing any physical fitness in the mornings, try adding this to your playlist. When you are finished you will feel like the week is yours to conquer. Try this song with a hula hoop or stationary bike!   I've missed a couple of Monday melodi...

From the weather forecasts we expected to be inundated with rain for three days straight here in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Of course, that's one of the groovier aspects of mountains. Sometimes the weather is a big surprise and doesn't look anything like what the meteorologi...

  Wild cats are pretty self-reliant creatures and fearsome hunters. Domesticated cats are too...or at least they think they are.   Charlie is no exception, he still remembers his heydays of 10 years ago when he was a feral yet mellow fellow. Charlie is now an indoor cat and that's the only wa...

Today in our case, here in Balsam, NC April showers bring ice. That's right, a nice blanket of ice on the trees and plants. Thankfully so far, not on the driveways or roads. Funny thing is, tomorrow should be in the 60s and by Saturday we'll see 70s. Crazy.       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

  Good Morning, I'm still trying to fit all of this new social media awareness into everyday living without experiencing a real live timesuck.  It isn't easy but I know it will be once I get a little more familiar with each site.  The IMSDesignation course is pretty definitive about not l...

  Ahhhh spring...one of my favorite seasons.  The birds, the blooms, the banks of snow.  Here in Balsam, we woke up to a pleasant spring morning with the temperature hovering at 22 degrees, the air full of flurries, 6-8 inches of snow and thankfully...the snowboots haven't been put away yet. ...

  Well, overnight we were graced with that "wintery mix" (phrase of vague definition) and awoke to a winter wonderland.  This time in Balsam, NC anyway "wintery mix" meant 5 inches of snow and it's still falling!     The truly amazing thing about living here in the mounta...

  Nothing like a ballad before heading off to dream land.  The weather forecast just informed us that by morning we will have that most vague of descriptions in weather, the famous "wintery mix" visiting us overnight.  It's always a surprise since it can be anything from nothing to ...

  As I was checking in at the reception area at our vet's office two days ago with Floyd, the gal at the desk asked if I wanted Frontline today.  Don't get me wrong, our vet's office is much appreciated by us and we understand they need to run a business but that question flew all ove...

  There may not be a more magical touch in weather than a beautiful snowfall.  Over the weekend, we got our first real snow of the winter here in Balsam, NC.  For those of you who don't live in regions where this most startling season exists, I'll share ours with you.     This is just hal...

    What a difference a day makes! Well...two days, I mean.  A couple of days ago we were basking in 60 degree weather.  The stick dude tried making a snow angel on the driveway but to little avail.     Then the north wind blew in, leaving us with nights in the teens...a little bit of snow...a lo...

  There is nothing more pathetic than watching someone try to create a snow angel without snow.  It's just sad.  This stick dude appeared on the driveway, I guess maybe remembering the quantity of snow we had a couple of years ago.  Back then he was able to make a magnificent snow angel and I...

  The forecast said we'd see the sun today, so far it remains hidden.  Yesterday was a delicious mix of frozen rain, sleet, ice and other assorted crystalline objects all over Western North Carolina...delicious anyway if you are a penguin, polar bear or reindeer!  Leslie said it best on the t...

  Like a lot of people, I used to think that squirrels were cute.  Bushy tails, bright eyes and the little paws that handled food just like hands.  All I see now are bushy tailed little rats with buzz saws for teeth.  As I sit here grimacing with every keystroke, I am at least grateful to no long...

  What a difference a day makes.  After 5 or 6 days of dreary and rainy days, we felt like we were coming out of a cave entering a day of blue skies and glorious brilliant sunlight today.      When we left for the office, the sun lit up the ice on Rosemount Road.  It looked like a crystal fairyla...
