After reading Charles Buell's blog challenge, Proof that I can blog about anything (aka: Proof that I can run a CONTEST about anything), I took a look under my kitchen sink. Ever since our kids were little, we decided not to keep cleaners, etc. down low where the kids could potentially be harmed, so there was none of that. What I found was garbage bags, used paper towel rolls, Swiffer brushes and quite the collection of flower vases.                                This collection is from flowers that I have given to my wife. She is saving the vases to use later.  Flowers can be sent for various reasons, but it reminded me of taking the time, action and energy to follow up for your gratefulness, whether it be to a client, a friend or a spouse, saying "Thank you" with a gift of appreciati...

Do you talk to your seat mate on a plane ...or do you snuggle down to take a nap  and not even  make eye contact?  Or even read your book....and hope they don't talk to you?  Yesterday I had a very early morning flight...and we actually had to leave for the airport at 2:30 am!   Uggghh  my hubby loved the no traffic....I am not so sure I liked that time of the day flying!  LOL   I had hoped to sleep most of the flight....since I had got maybe an hour of sleep.... Well first leg of the flight a gentleman sat down and he immediately started talking....it was very interesting talk as he was in sales too...and the flight literally "flew" by...(Sorry about the pun)  but no nappy!    I will say with him we did solve all the worlds problems and we talked sales strategies and real estate a bit ...

On this relaxed Sunday, with great Nampa Idaho Weather, I had the privilege of spending the day with my grandson. (I have told them many times, I'm too young to be a grandpa, so call me "G-Daddy!") After working on our many vehicles, checking oil, charging batteries, checking misc stuff, my grandson (Hammy) decided  he too, needed to work on his rig!                 What a joy it is to watch them grow and learn! It's an exciting time for a 4-year old. Next thing you know, he'll be buying and selling Idaho Real Estate!

Today was a near perfect weather day....temps were in the mid 80's with a slight breeze .... I love the days of Fall in Southwestern Idaho......when the nights and mornings are chilly but then the afternoons warm up... The leaves are starting to turn a bit....but we still have a few more weeks of Indian Summer... What is the weather doing in your area?  Are you enjoying the cool days of Fall?   Or is it still warm?   We haven't had much rain.... I am actually still getting blackberries in my back yard...and the roses are still blooming....the purple asters are coming on and the burgundy mums are just about to burst.   I love the fall flowers....plenty of color from some of the summer annuals...but the fall perennials are starting to show their beauty!!1 Like I said...just another perfec...
