I don’t know about you, but I’ve been sneezing for a couple of weeks now, ever since the dandelions and other spring flowers/weeds have appeared.
Not that I’m complaining – at least it seems to have finally stopped snowing here in Buffalo, NY!
At some point, I’ll go out and trim along the edge of the yard, but for now I’m finding the spring flowers attractive:
I think they’re asters? It’s not clear in the photo, but those flowers have a definite pink tinge. In any event, they’re kind of pretty, aren’t they?
What’s not so attractive these days is the real estate market. I know a couple who were able to sell their house in only a few hours, at $40,000 over the asking price, but now they need to find a new home – and it’s not easy. Even the highest bidders are not prevailing if they aren’t cash buyers. Sellers are nervous about buyers who need to close the sales of their own existing houses, and are often taking lower bids from those who can pay cash, or from those who are living in an apartment (or in mommy’s and daddy’s basement) and will be able to move in immediately.
I’m so glad I’m no longer a real estate paralegal.
Meanwhile, now that COVID requirements are easing and people can actually go out and do fun stuff, I’ve been dog-sitting on occasion. Puppy Maya is almost 9 months old and learning how to be a “big” dog.
She was all tuckered out after chewing on the humungous treat I brought her. Then awhile later, she perked up and decided to watch for her owners:
She’s becoming an awesome watch dog! Some day maybe she’ll let me sit on that couch with her …
Happy Spring, Everyone. If the weather is nice where you are, get out and enjoy it!
