Sold our Anthem Home

Our Anthem Home

Well it had to hap­pen I guess.  Hav­ing tak­en the plunge to mar­ket our home for sale in late Decem­ber, it took pre­cise­ly 5 or so days until we had a firm offer.  Two weeks on the deal was done.  This real­ly is the only way to sell a house.  No wait­ing around and won­der­ing, few view­ings and a short close.  We have to thank our real­tor, Lin­da Rehwalt for the excel­lent sup­port and mar­ket­ing plan she devised.  If you are ever in the mar­ket for a home in Anthem she is you’re go to per­son.

So on April 1, 2013 we will be offi­cial­ly home­less and start­ing on our jour­ney of dis­cov­ery.  Be care­ful what you wish for.….

Freezing weekend in Anthem

Well its mid-Jan­u­ary and its freez­ing here.  Not that unusu­al for the desert but still comes as a bit of a shock.  The tem­per­a­ture fell to around 27F last night and we had to cov­er all the vul­ner­a­ble plants.  Man­aged to buy some sheets from the Good­will store and used there as cov­ers.  Seems to work­ing real­ly well.

For the first time in 5 years our gar­den pond has frozen sol­id.  The cold snap is expect­ed to con­tin­ue until Tuesday–roll on the warmer weath­er!

Garden visitors

So this guy swooped in and land­ed on the gar­den fence this evening.   He was about a foot and a half tall and not sur­pris­ing­ly all the rest of the birdlife made a hasty retreat when he appeared.

As he flew off there was a large shad­ow cast on the ground.  Beware any­one being caught for his sup­per.
