Cultiss Lake, Oregon

My favorite lake in the Cascade Mountain Range ! An hour outside Bend , so less people drive that far. Water was a tad warmer than the normal frigid snow melt in June !

See why I like it ? That view !

I always take a few shots , hard to tell on a phone what you can blow up for wall art later .

I learned this trick from my brother , this one isn’t perfect in scale , but fun to see the size of the rock in front versus the mountain to the left . Jeff did it with a seashell at the beach , wow .

Waffles went to the vet yesterday and it wore her out – so cute !

Happy Saturday from sunny Bend !

Woodland Park , Sisters OR

My little sister came to see the new neighborhood I have the honor to be selling – and took these great, goofy pictures !

It’s a beautiful street of new homes ! No one wants to front yards that they have to mow , so this xeriscaping is very popular .

Shelby took this cool picture of one of my front signs – it’s even better in black and white .

She had stopped by at the end of a long Open House day , so I was a little goofy . Beyond love my job helping people , and hanging out in Sisters is easy duty .

What’s Waffles doing today ?! Growing up fast . Her energy level has quadrupled, too , takes 4 of us to keep her busy & happy !

Eagle Crest Resort

Oh , what a gorgeous Central Oregon day to be outside ! Took these pictures of the Cascade Mountains as I drove the back way in to Eagle Crest Resort .

This is the least snow pack we’ve had in years; strange to see so little white.

Great day to be hiking !

I’m back!

Let’s start with the most important first – our new puppy Waffles!  9 weeks old and a source of PURE JOY for all who meet her !  She’s a cream golden retriever.  We knew we couldn’t duplicate Lady, so having her look a little different but still be the same sweet temperament really helps deal with losing Lady.    My daughter came up with the name as a joke and the rest of us loved it,  much to her chagrin, it stuck.


She loves to chew, of course and in addition to all her play toys, friends have suggested all that she has here – ice cubes in a bowl, both chewable.  A water bottle for chewing and the crackling noise.  My favorite rug works for her, too.  Ha.

IMG_4779Waffles is waiting at the bottom of the stairs for the kids to come down – please note the corner of the stair that was not meant to be a chew toy!  She’ll do a little yip to get their attention; she hasn’t figured out they are teens and can sleep through anything.  Don’t you just want to hug her and play with her?!

IMG_4814When we’re not playing with Waffles, we’ve been doing a ton of hiking this summer, even with forest fires and smokey skies.  This is Suttle Lake with a view to Black Butte – an easy 3 mile hike around Suttle, a harder straight up hike to the summit of Black Butte.

In the last few years, we’ve had more forest fires and brush fires because our forests aren’t being optimally managed, and our climate is becoming drier.  Scary combination.  The price of living near our gorgeous forests.

I’ve also been working too much!  This is 778 S Wrangler, Sisters, Oregon, a home I have listed for sale at $534,500 in a new neighborhood.  A charming little town, famous for the Quilt Show and local artists, this neighborhood is near the 5 Pines Lodge,  (a famous engagement/wedding destination) Shibui Spa (try it, you won’t want to leave), Three Creeks Brewing (award winning beer), Islas Rio (you’ve never had mexican seafood like this), the Sisters Athletic Club (you have to be in great shape to recreate as much as we do) and the Sisters Movie Theatre (fun setting, beer & food available).  It’s become more popular to get out of a car based existence, so people are moving to Sisters to walk to all the shops, restaurants and schools. The National Forest is 1/2 mile south, so it’s never hard to get out in the woods when you need a break. Pretty much paradise.

IMG_2272This is 801 S Wrangler, almost done, for sale at $486,500.  A huge corner lot, the yard to the left has a southern exposure and no possibility of having anyone live right behind you – perfect.  It’s so fun to have families come through my open houses and realize they can live a beautiful life in a new home – all without the pollution of a car!

IMG_5016Waffles usually has her head resting on my foot as I work, but she just fell asleep in the middle of playing with her stuffed animal – pretty cute, eh?!  Happy Monday!

Pilot Butte & Lady

Our gorgeous outdoor treadmill !  I’ve been so busy helping clients the last few months that I haven’t been hiking it as much as I used to.  Plus my golden retriever died , so too tough to go without her .  13 years of wagging her tail up and down the whole hill and getting petted by every passerby .  My heart aches . Last pic of her in the snow .
