Looking at Real Estate Listings

Hi Neighbors!

How about real estate Santa Monica!  Not a chance.  My personal dream home would be a cabin or ranch house on several acres.  After spending several (as in ten) years on the road and now living in a three bedroom home, we still feel like we don't have enough room.  Even the children were complaining the other day as we made some changes in bedrooms.  Needless to say, I told them if we could live on the road in an RV for years, we could survive here!

Now, I picture my dream home, somewhere in Tennessee or maybe Missouri.  My daughter would enjoy Texas.  I would like a 4 bedroom home with at least two bathrooms and perhaps a half bath.  I would like the kitchen to have an island in the center with a rack above it for hanging pots, pans and utensils.  Of course I want a casual dining room off of the kitchen.  The kitchen would be stocked with pots and pans that are large enough for a family of eight!  I know, I am supposed to supply those.

I would LOVE to have the deck I have here attached to the back of my dream home.  I would really miss it if we moved.   Maybe I just need to marry off some children!  I enjoy my back deck and my front patio.  Especially in fall and winter with a couple of rockers to enjoy.  We would still like a little more room though.

The home would have to include at least 5 acres as we have a couple of dogs, 1 cat, a few rabbits and the children would like to have more.  We also had to give our chickens up recently and we would love to have them again.  And there would need to be room for a garden, both flowers and vegetables.  My twelve year old loves gardening.

I would enjoy a mountain view, or perhaps a stream nearby.  I am a country girl at heart, and really do not care for the hustle and bustle of cities.  Maybe someday.  For now I am happy right here enjoying the four seasons, relaxing on the front porch or back deck, spending time with my family.  It is still fun to dream though!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
