Over the holidays I received my new Davis Instruments Vantage Vue weather station.  We ordered it from Ambient Weather along with mounting hardware and Weather Link data logger and software.  The station is mounted on our roof and does not face the street.  It's on the back of the house so the HOA shouldn't complain.  We put everything together and installed software called Virtual Weather Station on our new Dell computer.  So about once a minute the new website is updated with the current data from this new wonder machine.  I've listed the weather station on Weather Under Ground and Weather Bug.  Now I've got to customize it and put upa facebook page.  I'm already on twitter @LeanderWeather.  This is going to be quite a journey as I move forward with SEO placement and linking it to my ...

If  you are looking for a cool, close to home and fantastic reasonably priced place to spend a hot Texas day with your family or friends, I have just the place for you to try! Williamson County recently opened the latest addition to the Southwest Regional Park: a water park filled with summer enjoyment. You will find the Quarry Splash Pad located at the back of the park, which is just north of the interstate of FM 1431 and Sam Bass Road/County Road 175, near both Round Rock and Cedar Park.  The Quarry Splash Pad is located behind the softball fields.What is so unique about the park is it uses existing rock features from the quarry formerly located on the land. On approximately 2 acres you will find the play areas which consist of the quarry, Rapids and the Sand Play area. You won’t beli...

It was a beautiful day yesterday here in Central Texas.  The bluebonnets are in bloom everywhere.   I couldn't resist taking this picture of our Search and Rescue Dog, Stryker.  She was a good girl and sat while I snapped away trying to capture the beauty around her.   This picture was taken on Old Route 2243 across from HEB.

Which master bedroom would you rather buy? Option 1 Option 2 I think we all know the answer to that question however both bedrooms are in the same house . . . it's the same room. Staging a master bedroom is about more than decluttering. You need to create a space that feels luxurious and inviting. In this Leander, Texas home Twing Home Staging & Redesign was able to give a luxurious and inviting feel with a few budget friendly updates. Why this room works? As I've said before every room needs a focal point and in a master bedroom it should always be the bed. Your eye is drawn to the bed with an inexpensive DIY headboard. The sheen of the new linens and lamps creates a feeling of luxury. The room looks finished and inviting through the addition of artwork and accessories. Do you need hel...

      Left at 11am and just got back to my office a few minutes ago, it is just after 3pm. I met my clients at the new home sales office. They had found their dream builder and were ready to sign paper work. When purchasing a new home many buyers do not realize that the Realtor in the New Home Sales office is representing the builder. While they are professional and will answer truthfully any questions you ask, you are much better represented by having your own Realtor. It costs you nothing to have  your own representative at the table and it can help give you peace of mind.  My cleints had lots of questions and I was able to help them get each questioned answered as well as ask questions they did not think to ask. I wanted them to fully understand all their obligations, responsibilitie...
