Some people go on vacations during the months of summer. This is a foreign concept to me because as a Realtor for 30 odd years, summer was the peak of my working season. Oh, and Christmas Eve, don’t ask me why but rather than baking cookies on Christmas Eve I was working.
There is a point to my ramble, I will be flying off to Kentucky next week to find a replacement property for the rental I just sold. That trip will be my ‘summer vacation’. Aint I just a ball of fun?? To be totally honest (bet you never heard that from a Realtor before :), I am looking forward to getting back to a place that has Rain! I have been watching our water situation here in Northern California and doing my part to conserve to the best of my abilities. I say that because I cannot just let my trees die. I give them water from my showers (even hubby collects shower water) and I water on the two days a week we are allowed to water for ten minutes, any and all landscape. I am sure you have seen the wildfires on the news, so you can see the water needed to stop them is a concern.
I am a little hesitant to leave just now. If you watch the national news those horrible flames you see running like a wild creature up the bone-dry hills are only a few miles from my home. The air is filled with smoke and sometimes even bits of ash. Summer vacation here in Norther California is a gamble that the fires will not make it to your home while you are gone. Yup, ball of fun!
So I will stop here and cross my fingers or something. Oh, wanted to say Hi to a lovely redhead. Did you know that red hair does not turn gray? When you are my age you will be a strawberry blonde. Yes, I am jealous, xx Write On Darlings!!
