Mid-Winter

January 28, 2007

The dog does not appreciate the fact that I am standing in the front yard in my pajamas, down coat, and clogs with my slippers stuck into them. I feel the warmth from my just-left bed seeping out of the down, but she is following the tiny squirrell tracks in the new snow. Snow that is seeping down my neck. I appreciate the fact that I live where no one knows or cares that I am dressed so bizarrely on my front yard to walk the puppy and pick up my

    Boston Globe

. Having the Globe delivered is one of the little pleasures we have here on the Cape, as in Albany it meant a trip around town to find one of the few copies that may have made it that far North, and I prefer my Globe in my PJs with a cuppa, watching it snow and contemplating the Orchid Show in Falmouth for later in the day. Winter on the Cape, ‘though frigid the past few days, id wonderful. The au pair and I took in a Pedro Almodovar film at the tiny theatre in the art museum on Friday night, and last weekend we went to a nearly deserted Provincetown, stopping off at the Salt Pond Visitors Center at the National Seashore. We visited Nauset Light. All without a bit of traffic! We found where everyone in P’town was, in a warm and cozy restaurant. Bliss.

Yarmouth Port Agent of the Month for December, 2006

January 15, 2007

Some technical difficulties have kept me offline, but I am pleased to share my recent kudos from ERA Martin Surette Realty. Our awards night dinner was held at the wonderful Yarmouth House restaurant on Route 6A, and I also received recognition from ERA Mortgage. It was a great night out and Eric enjoyed meeting my colleagues. Now for an even better 2007, as 2006 was officially the worst real estate year in a decade. Send those referrals!

New Year’s Day: Welcome to 2007!

January 1, 2007

As  I opened the 2007 calendar with beautiful artwork by Cape artist Barbara Ford Doyle (get yours at www.bfdoyle.com) I remembered the hot, sunny day that I bought it at the Arts Festival in Chatham.  I look forward to what this year will bring: my son’s 3rd and my daughter’s 25th birthdays, friends to the Cape, discovering the U.S. through the eyes of our French visitor and my own family back to France.  Beach days are ahead, and it will only be longer days for the next six months. So much to look forward to! I also hope to help a number of families purchase their dream homes here on the Cape, too.  Happy New Year to friends and family near and far.  We look forward to having you with us at any time of year.
