I know it’s the second day of summer, and I’m not here to complain. Well, sort of. The heat, fine. The humidity, OK. But the lack of rain, not cool. In addition to making everybody’s lawn look brown and crunchy, it’s giving way to wildfires throughout Florida.

Some of the reported 300+ (I don’t know what the actual number is, as it seems to be increasing everday) fires have started as a result of lightning striking. Others because of human stupidity, I’m sure.

Check out this pic I took last week — while J and I were up in Martin County we noticed part of Hobe Sound was on fire:

Yaaay, sort of. Honestly, I’m not really sure what to feel about it, but I guess I’m happier than not that one of the two empty houses across the street is for sale. In fact, I saw three more houses with some Said Real Estate Company sign stabbed into the lawn in the past few weeks. And two days ago, I noticed a For Rent sign on one lawn. Hmmmm.

At Bankrate.com (yes, insert shameless plug), I read that the top 5 housing markets growing right now are:

1. Elmira, N.Y.

2. Pittsfield, Mass.

3. Binghamton, N.Y.

4. Burlington-South Burlington, Vt.

5. Bloomington-Normal, Ill.

I’m sure Lake Worth, Fla., is far from being anywhere near the top of that list. Makes me wonder … Can the real estate market handle more inventory? Is now the time to sell? Where are these sellers going to live? Will they buy or rent? Is this a good sign for my property value? Ugh, the conversations and thoughts of homeowners can be for real lame at times. What’s more, are there people who are willing and, more importantly, able to purchase a home? And, do these people want to buy in Lake Worth’s College Park?

Regardless of the answers to these questions, I’m still happy that one of the bank-owned properties across the street is legitimately up for sale. I’m hoping someone awesome comes and gives it some TLC ūüôā

What’s the state of real estate in your area?

Winter’s a bitch, no doubt.¬†It sucks I have to endure this all winter:

I read on CNN.com, “Snow present in 49 of 50 states,” and I really wanted to submit this picture of winter in Florida. I guess they were looking for more snow than sand. Oh well. Stay warm out there, my friends afar!!

I must confess, I’m not a fan of math. ¬†The numbers, the symbols, it all boggles me. ¬†Nevertheless, here’s an equation for you:

+  = ________

SOUTH FLORIDA WINTER!!!!!!!

The weekend was a big mash up of weather-specific activities. Friday night, it was hanging out by the chiminea. ¬†Saturday afternoon, surfing at the beach. ¬†(I actually managed to catch a couple of waves myself!) ¬†Sunday, Christmas tree shopping and digging more blankets and comforters out of the closet! ¬†(It’s our first year to get a real Christmas tree for the holidays, and I love it!!)
