Walking in my from the parking lot into my office one morning, I noticed that our 7 ft ladder was taped off with a note: “Mama bird nesting, please do not use ladder.” I looked up and low and behold there was a beautiful mama morning dove sitting on a nest that she had made right on top of our ladder.
So no one can use our ladder until the mama bird is done nesting. Later I found that our office manager had put the note there. How sweet and thoughtful. Yea for good people who care about all the living things around us. Makes me glad to work here even if I can’t use the ladder.

Every Thursday Krista and I get to go out and preview the new homes on the market that week. And its one of my favorite parts of this job. I’ve always been nosy and there is something so satisfying about getting a sneak peak at what’s about to hit the market. Some weeks there is nothing really of interest but this past week we came upon not one but count ‘em two really interesting homes. The first was this really cool ranch style house in Kensington — built and pretty much untouched since the Brady Bunch lived there, including this amazing “wet” room. Check it out:
Not only is that a gigantic cobble-stoned shower but right next to it was this:
So there you have it — shower and hot tub all in one! There’s Krista “taking a shower. ”
And then there was the Harry Potter house. This house had amazing exposed brick walls, high rounded ceilings and this amazing hidden staircases inside a real life brick turret.
Ok, saw this on tour and I just LOVE LOVE LOVE it. The space was very small, very modern, very comfortable. When thinking about small spaces think color, style, height.
