October is a delightful month, leaves falling from the trees, cooler breezes making the days perfect for long walks and meandering conversations. We made it through September without any storms, much less any hurricanes! So that's lovely for our insurance rates.
I have been very busy trying to pack boxes, throw out unworn and unused belongings, attending to charity bags for Goodwill, all in the hopes that someone will buy my little one bedroom condo here in Paradise, so I can move up north and be with my love. Property is not moving well right now. Greenspan told everyone that he thinks prices will drop lower, so you'd have to be a moron to buy then, wouldn't you? Of course the exception is our gem of a place where I live. Unique, one of a kind, fabulous tropical retreat. We'll see.
Meanwhile I've been writing columns and articles and creating my very own web site. The time goes by quickly. I am so looking forward to being in the cold, in the snow, having a large dog to drag me around, going to New York, seeing Broadway shows. Exciting.
I hope you all have a wonderful fall, and a happy time in your lives. Being happy is a state of mind, that's for sure. Wake up happy and stay happy. Sometimes it takes a little work, not to mention the occasional Martini! ha ha...
OK, that's all for now, because I have so much to do!
But I'll be back!
Love ya, Jiva
