After 5 years

Nick (my 21 yr old son) finally got his class 6 motorcycle licence. He aced the road test too! He only got a couple of demerits. I told him not to be nervous on the road test, I said just think of it as you are showing them how good you ride. Well it worked. I guess biking is in the blood!!
It really shouldn't have taken so long to get to this point, but, having to go out of town for the test, and learner's permits expiring kind of delayed him.

Way to go Nick!

Short Vacation

So, I'm off for a short vacation. We are travelling to Leavenworth, Washington. We plan on staying at the Bavarian Lodge. If you ever go to Leavenworth, I highly recommend this hotel. It's very cute. Don't know where we're going after this, but, I'll be back on Friday.

It's hot!

I was showing property yesterday, boy was it ever hot!! But, it's a dry heat.

Our real estate market is still busy. Rural properties are holding a steady price, but, in town seems to be dropping a bit in price. It seems that most people coming into our office are asking about rural properties. I think they want to get away from big city living and just relax. Some are looking for cabins, for the quick weekend getaway, some just want out of the big city.

So far, summer has proved to be steady for real estate, but, I expect it to pick up again in the fall.

Another day, another post, Bear!

Well, I'm posting, cause Bear said I had too.

Um, I'm home from my short vacation to Idaho, had a fantastic time with great friends. Pete arranged for an awesome thunder and lightning storm, that guy thinks of everything! I don't know what we can do for him when he comes up north to visit!

Had a good ride home, only a little rain. So everyone got to laugh at me when I put on my rain gear, I was quite the picture! My rain gear consisted of my bright yellow jacket, black pants, and my pink buff pulled up to my glasses to cover my face! Of course to top it all off, I've lost weight and the rain gear is a little big on my now!

So back to work, this week, then a short family trip next week.

Not much

So not much happening here lately.
I've been to Kelowna for a 2 day management training course at RE/MAX. That was good I learned more stuff.
I've been planning for a short vacation this summer. So I'm taking off for 4 days (woo hoo) to Idaho to visit some friends.
Then we are taking 3 days off to go to Leavenworth Washington and there abouts! The end of August is not a time I'm looking forward to. My daughter is moving to UBC Okanagan for school, it's going to be tough to see my baby leave. At least Kelowna is only 2 hours away, so she can come home on the weekend.

Bear, I'll try to update more later.
