Have you ever thought about being in a new home for Christmas? Have you walk into a showing and visulized where you would stand the Christmas tree in that home. Can you imagine serving Christmas Dinner by candlelight in your new dining room or baking Christmas cookies with children or grandchildren in an awesome kitchen with sparkling new appliances and possibly double ovens? There’s still time with many properties available for quick closing! If a property is empty, and on land titles (which 99% are these days) lawyers can now actually close them in three days! Gone are the days where closings took a minimum of thirty days. Mama has tested this, selling and closing a property within 3 days here in Rothesay. Keep in mind that both the buyers laywer and the sellers lawyer need to be on board to make this happen so you’ll want to check with them first!
We’ve been as busy as bees getting our house ready for Santa. A week ago we got the outside all done (it was a big job) and we’ve been puttering away in the evenings inside, after Mama is finished work. Mama and Papa always put up a real fir tree for Christmas in the foyer Christmas week but Nicholas and I have our own little artificial tree. We don’t have it up yet of course, it’s too early for that but we’ll be pulling it out in a couple of weeks along with all our beloved animal ornaments. Nicholas just loves it and I do too. Most of the ornaments are dogs and cats but we also have some squirels, raccoons, bears, deer, mice, ect. Mama has been collecting them for a long time and they’ve been passed down to us from William and Buffy (the cats) Freckles, Theodore andLaddie (the dogs). We treasure each one, ohhing and aweing, as they are unwrapped and placed on the tree. We have little mini coloured lights and a small santa sits on the top of the tree. When it’s all done we just lay and stare at it, mesmerized! We’ll show you some pictures when it’s all up and decorated this year. Here are some pics of what we did outside.
This is the wreath Nicholas and I had chosen for the front door! We think it’s totally appropriate as you know asa anyone knocks on the door or a squirel even scampers across the yard we let Mama and Papa know that somethings going on!
No open houses this weekend but we will have one next Sunday December 1st at 70 Dunedin Road in Rothesay from 2-4pm. Please note the date! MLS#NB036677 Offered at $549,000. This stone character home has a lovely view of the Kennebecasis River, large foyer, huge living room with 10′ ceiling and wood burning fireplace, spacious dining room and modern granite kitchen!
Don’t you think this little guy all done up with his cosy hat and scarf looks like our new neighbour little Duff Black? The picture on the left is Duff’s baby picture when he arrived here. We think they could be twins!!! Duff is about 6 months old now and he sure is a little sweetheart! Runs like the wind!!! Mama has already preparred Nicholas to the fact that he won’t be able to keep up with Duff once Duff’s full grown. Nicholas wasn’t impressed, he thinks he’s a speed demon and he is but he’ll be 8 on Christmas Day so not quite as quick as he used to be.
Hope you have a good weekend and if you’re out and about dress warm!
