Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine! Oh I’m lov’n the sunshine these first official days of summer! Means better trips to the beach for Nicholas and I and Papa won’t be all grumpy about the rain and cold. Really lov’n these long twilight evenings and the full moon. We can come home from our walks at 9:30 – 9:45 pm at night with no problem to see where we are going. Mama always said there is nothing better than summer in New Brunswick and we agree. Our friends in Ontario have been calling to say it’s 42C with the humidex while we enjoy life here in the air-conditioned city hovering between 18C and 24C. Big Buddy Bacon would have a serious problem if it hit 42C down here. I’d just stay indoors and hang around the air-conditioning. Chuckle, chuckle.
Speaking of Twilight evenings Mama is having a special Twilight Open House this Wednesday from 4pm to 6pm at 4 Crosswind Crescent off Highland Ave and Grove Ave in Rothesay. It’s a beautifully stylish home with two fireplaces, an awesome master ensuite bath and a hot tub! If you ever got the Budster into that hot tub I can tell you right now you wouldn’t be getting him out! Can’t you see Nicholas and I just laying back, one elbow up on the side, the water swooshing all around us, a pair of dark shades on…. Okay, the shades may be a bit too much! Lucky the buyer who gets this stunning home, great value too as it’s newly reduced!
I am feeling so much better that Mama can hardly believe it! As you know I’ve been swimming every evening, going further and further, getting stronger. I’m walking so fast now that Mama can’t keep up with me. Yesterday I started dancing around the yard when a friend stopped by I was so excited to see them. Everyone is telling me I’m looking good too. I’m so thankful to Dr. Kelly for getting me back on track!
Papa has been away this week so we’re finding it very quiet at home, not to say that he’s noisy or anything but you can certainly hear him if he’s got something to say! We miss him terribly. When he headed for the door with that dreaded suitcase (we hate Papa’s suitcase) I started crying my eyes out, I just couldn’t seem to help myself! Then poor Nicholas laid out in the yard looking sadly down the street for him from 5:30 pm until 8:30 that night until finally Mama had to go out and actually take him by the collar to bring him in. We’re going to be so excited when he gets home Sunday night. Mama will cook one of his favourite dinners and we’ll all greet him at the door. Nicholas will probably jump up all over him. I can see it all now; he’ll be right out of control. I’m just hoping I can keep it together as Mama is always telling me what a good boy I am and I wouldn’t want to disappoint her. If I ever jumped up on Papa I’m sure I’d flatten him so I’ll just brush up against his legs looking to get my ears scratched. Oh joy, oh bliss!
Sales have certainly picked up this year as prices have adjusted to the current market. The team have sold six houses just this past week! Two from MLS and four of our own listings; 30 Grove Avenue, Rothesay $579,500 (modern ranch still under warranty), 22 Cedar Ridge Road, Blackville-Miramichi $350,000 (stunning log home with great fishing), 615 Gondola Point Road, Quispamsis $579,000 (mint, waterfront ranch sold in 3 days!) and 23 Upper Deck Lane in Drury Cove $489,000 (upscale condo to be custom finished).
Sunday afternoon the team has something special planned in Rothesay; a Fine Homes International™ Open house at two historic estates 3105 and 3189 Rothesay Road just across from Shadow Lawn. Both have acres of manicured grounds which I would just love and rambling character houses with huge rooms and amenities galore; plenty of space big enough for Buddy Bacon inside and out! Mama and Steven will be hosting so drop by if you have the chance as an open house at these estate-type properties is a rare occurrence.
Have a great weekend, sun every day, enjoy!
