Well that title is about three different posts that inspired me this morning. We planned a weekend getaway and at the last minute, David got some work that had to be done. So, we canceled our plans and I was mopey about it but decided to make lemonade out of lemons and get a course out of the way. I got up early to blog and comment as usual and noticed that I was having extra time....because David was sleeping in. He finally got up around 9:00 which is very late for him and said...."Guess what?" "I finished my work, let' go to the Coast"! Well, what a wonderful surprise. We packed up and were on the road within the hour. We had so much fun. I can't encourage you enough to take a break and do something wonderful for yourself. We had a completely magical weekend with everything just layin...

Bald Eagles Patriot and Liberty are quite famous due to the Cal Trans "Eagle Cam" in Redding. Cal Trans biologists were surprised by the pair's commitment to their nest. Workers placed a traffic cone in the nest in an attempt to encourage the nesting pair to relocate. The eagles were undaunted and the workers removed the cone. Patriot and Liberty have continued to successfully nest each year since. Now dubbed "Turtle Bay Eagle Cam" will go live again this fall to follow these Mates For Life. The pair were observed mid summer of this year peacefully enjoying the end of a late July day.

I still see many of the agents in my local area using photos with "blow out" or "white out" from the glare of sunlight coming through windows. There are some easy things you can do to avoid this. Without using any photographic techniques, you can schedule your appointment for dusk when the angle of the Sun will not be directly challenging your photos. Dusk is a beautiful time to take your photos and most likely you will have a good effect of seeing the outside beautifully through your windows. Look at the shot to see if you have the "blow out" effect and if you do, take steps to correct. You can pull the blinds, close the curtains. Turn on the lights for a warm glow and retake the shot. It's not always convenient to take your photos at dusk and we often come back for a night shoot. Hous...

I set a new goal for myself and that is to start working in RAW format with my photos. RAW is a setting on your DSLR camera that offers an output option, which contains all the pixel information captured by the camera's sensors. The RAW file has not been compressed or processed in any way to conform to standard file formats such as JPEG. It has more data to work with and allows the user more options for enhancements. I spent last weekend just playing around and taking photos in the RAW setting. You can't use any of the "auto" functions on your camera if you are using RAW. The photos are large. Here are some of the photos for today with Flowers being the subject. Have a beautiful day. Flowers are so healing. Flowering Lilies - Jeanean Gendron Sunflower Kiss - Jeanean Gendron Wake Up Flow...

Shasta County Homes Sales October 18, 2011 The market's inventory is continuing a steady decline, while sales continue to trump last years results. Current MLS results report 1,901 homes have sold year-to-date, 2011, versus 1,637 homes sold for the same period last year. The present inventory of 1,131 homes listed for sale represents a 5.7 months supply. A 3 to 6 month supply is considered balanced between a Buyer and Seller's market. Real Estate Market forecasting is challenging. However, we do know Shasta County's declining inventory is a key component that can fuel supply and demand pressures and eventual price increases? Feedback from our buyer clients who have been watching the market closely, for a period of time, suggest a perceptible shift in inventory. Interestingly enough 2,69...

I commented on a post today that had me laughing so hard that tears were coming down my cheeks. That is like my favorite thing in life is to laugh and I did enjoy myself. Nancy Timberlake posted about WOOFSTOCK, a local parade for beloved pets. Obviously the upcoming Halloween holiday is the theme or the Dog Lovers just have Halloween in mind. The photo of a Poodle dressed up in Orange and boasting a big "Jack O Lantern" smile just broke me up. Not so much about the photo....the dogs look completely happy and adorable. Our beloved dogs will suffer anything if we are happy about it. They perceive your energy and if you are happy well then they are happy. What cracked me up is that we have a sentient being in our home and her name is Ginger. She is a Golden Retriever and she is very aware...

Redding CA - Short Sales - Learning About Short Sales - Know Your Options--we continue to see the short sale as a solution for homeowners facing hardship. As a short sale agent who has been helping my clients with short sales for the past four years, it is critical that you know your options and that you learn about short sales. When I get a call from a new client inquiring about short sales, I have a list of questions that we go through over the phone. The most important question that I ask is if they have researched their options. Researching their options means that they have consulted with a financial professional or a legal professional or both. It also means that they have talked with other friends that have been through the short sale process or researched on-line. There are many...

Shasta County Homes Sales October 10, 2011 The market's inventory is continuing it's decline. 1,844 homes have sold year-to-date, 2011, versus 1,600 homes sold for the same period last year. The present inventory of 1,160 homes listed for sale represents a 5.86 months supply. A 3 to 6 month supply is considered balanced between a Buyer and Seller's market. The insight of hindsight: In 2005 home inventories began to grow at a rapid pace in Shasta County. However the momentum of appreciation continued to allow home prices to rise for a short time. I only know one private investor that had the foresight to see the market turning early and stopped building BEFORE the bubble burst. Is the present market shifting, but in the opposite direction? The present sales pace could reach 2,376 homes s...

Redding CA - Flowers in My Courtyard - Growing a Small Garden--We downsized last May to a beautiful little Frank Lloyd Wright home. We are loving it. I have a small Courtyard and I am gardening again and planning ever so carefully what will go in the garden. Toni Weidman writes about her garden often and the butterflies that visit along with the Hummingbirds. I have the Hummies coming but became inspired by Toni's photos of butterflies to buy a Lantana plant to attract the butterflies. Toni also wrote about this plant recently and ergo my desire to put it in my garden. So here is a visit to my small courtyard. We are currently in the process of selling our table and chairs....so that we can pull out our Chimanea to enjoy early and late evening fires. It's a bit cramped but we are making...

Flower Power - Thursday Flowers - A Tribute to Roy Kelley and His Beautiful Flowers--Today is a rainy Thursday and I finally have some time to take some photos of my Courtyard and the new flower addition I bought last weekend. Since it is a beautiful rainy day here in Redding, California, I am taking the opportunity to share flowers with you. Roy Kelley inspires us with Roy and Dolores Kelley Photography on a daily basis. Each photo is magical and all are beautiful. I started taking photos of flowers some months ago, inspried by Roy. I have to say that taking the photos is also wonderful. I have ask for a membership to our local Turtle Bay Exploritorium for Christmas this year, so that I can go and photograph all the local and native plants in the Arboretum. Excited. Thank you Roy and D...

The passing of Apple Founder Steve Jobs is being remembered today. In reading WSJ's list of "Steve Jobs Best Quotes" I'm reminded that he considered the business culture he created vital to producing great products. He honored the people he worked along side of. Perhaps that is something that stands out about what Steve Jobs was able to create at Apple. Demonstrating again, "the sum of the parts are greater than the whole."

There is this on-going observation in my life as a Realtor. This is my third career. Having been a marketing person my entire life and spent many years as a Marketing Manager for smaller companies until I went to work for Apple Computer, Inc. as a Field Service Implementation Planner, (another convoluted term for marketer) and owning my own Software Company for 12 years, I became a Realtor. It still astounds me at the skill level required to be effective in this business and it is so diverse. I truly cannot think of a profession that so resolutely requires the person to be well rounded in personal, business, technology and marketing skills. Examples: A Realtor with 30 years of relationships that has some technology skills, pays for a decent website and continues to stay in touch with th...

Redding CA - Saturday was a Great Day - Farmer's Market - Dead Bluff and More--Yesterday was such a wonderful day. Fall is here and we were out and about all day. Started with the Farmer's Market. I went looking for my special pumpkin....and found it. We brought home veggies for the weeks menus and my RAM came for my machine. Installed the RAM this AM....I'm blazing now! We also headed down to Red Bluff to see a car. We are in the market for a 4 wheel drive vehicle for Winter. I called it Dead Bluff in the title and seriously, it is a charming little town with historical charm. We stumbled on a lovely spot to take some photos and enjoyed our trip. Here is a great show of our pumpkins at the Farmer's Market. I also forgot to mention that inspired by Toni Weidman, I bought two Lantana pla...
