P.J. the Pony, Potato Stamps and Paddleboats

Leila's first pony ride today went unphotographed. The batteries died 4 minutes before she trotted off. Ugh.
Luke opted for paddleboats with Dad:

Quite a few colds in the house. Hence, a rare nap:

Potato stamping:

Current projects:
  • Women's Real Estate Investment Club. And this is why: I bought this house 9 years ago when it was $54,000. Now it's worth $105,000. My tenants paid my mortgage payments. I love real estate.
  • Blip. And this is why: A place I can go when I'm old to remember those baby years.
  • Eagerly anticipating Mom flying into John Wayne (airport) on Thursday! Two entire weeks of Mom Talks. This is happy goodness.

I'd love to get more in market speculation one day. Anyone that knows me knows I am obseesed with real estate !

We're on our 3rd house now, after buying and selling 2 at considerable profit ( allowing us to purchase this one ).

And in 2yrs ?

It's almost doubled in price.

Australia has some of the most expensive R/E on earth though - I don't know where you could buy a house here for $105k anymore.

When I bought in my current neighbourhood 3yrs ago, $650k was the norm. Now you're looking at listings STARTING at $950k, and the auctions are packed.

And no, these are not mansions, and there is no sea-view.
