September 15th is #NationalNeighborhoodDay!
Do you like your #neighborhood? I love mine 😊 The things that make a neighborhood great are obviously different for everyone, and some don't want to live in neighborhoods at all, but I like having good spots to run and gather with friends, having good neighbors (of which I have the best!) ... Quiet areas, nice views, ease of access to freeways, grocery stores, and so on, can also help to make a neighborhood great.
What makes a good neighborhood to you? Do you like your neighborhood? If not, I know a guy who can help you to find a neighborhood you'd like more! 😃
Here are a couple pictures of my neighborhood 😊

September 14th is #NationalLiveCreativeDay!
I dunno if you know this about me but I'm a liiiiiiittle #creative. I love to #draw, make #videos, work with #clay, build things, #craft, take #photos ... I enjoy all sorts of creative endeavors. In fact, so long as I'm #creating something, I'm pretty gosh darn happy 😊
I've attached some things I've drawn, the most recent being the drawing of Captain Marvel, which I finished just before the movie came out. The others I drew back in 2014 as an experiment in #storyboarding.
What's your favorite creative endeavor?

September 12th is #NationalSchoolPictureDay! (It's also #ChocolateMilkshakeDay, but I defer to my "#JustBecause" day for that, as I'm feeling a little chunkier the last few days ... Sorry, #UmpquaDairy! 😝) I've taken a few example photos of what not to do for your #school#picture day, as well as a relatively ideal school picture. Preferably if you're in the position to be taking school pictures as a student, you won't look like you're 35 in them. That ... ehhhh ... That's a thing.
Remember, stand (or sit) straight up! Look forward and at whatever the #photographer tells you to look at. If you're 2, they're probably going to have a little squeaky stuffed animal or something. If you're 7+, it's probably just going to be a thing on the corner of their camera. Make sure you're wearing something nice (whatever your mom picked out for you is the best option, TRUST ME 😬). Probably most importantly, don't blink during the photo. And, if you ARE 35+ in your photos, it may be nice to have a photog who knows how to remove the most pesky of pesky wrinkles, and who can make your skin look radiant, as opposed to "like you were standing next to a radiator". #DontBlink#StandUpStraight#SchoolPicture#PictureDay#WhatNotToDo #OhButters! #Butters#Realtor #Roseburg #BHHSREP#BerkshireHathaway#RunningRealtor
This is a great example of why to get a whole home inspection when buying a property! Saw this today when i was out showing homes.
September 9th is #InternationalSudokuDay!
It's one of my favorite #games you can play by yourself. I love #puzzles and #numbers, and if you combine the two ... whoa boy! I'm still not the best at either, and sometimes I need help (I'm OK with admitting that, haha), but it's great for helping you to think outside of the box!
Do you think people will notice this open house😂
Super cute, move in ready Keizer house perfect for a commuter.

September 7th is #WorldBeardDay this year!
I like to change it up ... I'll go beardless for about six weeks, go bearded for a couple months maybe, then repeat.
However, in #November of 2012 I decided to grow a beard starting at the beginning of the month, and at the end of the month ... I decided to let it keep going. And I ended up not shaving it off till the end of November 2013. So much beard.
It was a fun experience, not something I'll ever do again, haha.
Here's a couple pics.

September 6th is #NationalReadABookDay, and #NationalLazyMomsDay!
Firstly, if you're doing the #mom thing (in any context) you're probably not getting much opportunity to be "#lazy," even when you're "awarded" a "day off," haha. It seems most moms "lazy days" just means they get to do double loads of laundry, dishes, and other chores on their next "on" day. If you're close to a mom who's raising children it might be nice if you can give her a true day off ... give her time to herself and make sure there isn't a mess for her to clean up tomorrow as a result of getting that time 😉
And if you're a mom who's being awarded a true "lazy mom day," maybe you could read a book. I know, I know, ain't nobody got no time for that, but maybe someone's giving you enough time to yourself that you can read a quick paperback!
As for me, I took the time to read some heady literature today. I'm not sure I understood it all, as it's very nuanced, but I enjoyed it, never the less!
September 5th is #NationalBeLateForSomethingDay!
Today's a day f—
Oh. Oh goodness. I'm a little late on this post—er, I mean, I'm right on time for it! Be #Late For Something Day is intended to appreciate the positive elements of procrastination, namely that those who spend a little more time with clients and family tend to be less anxious overall.
Any client could tell you that, when you have my attention, you have the full focus. And if I'm 10 minutes travel time from my next appointment at 11:30, I'll chat with you right up until 11:21 😅 I really do think it's more important to answer all of your questions, and address any concerns, than it is to be immediately punctual.
So. What were you late for yesterday?

September 4th is #NationalNewspaperCarrierDay!
For those under the age of, I dunno, 30? a #newspaper was the way in which most #Americans gathered their news before #TV was invented. Once TV was invented, a relatively large number of people continued to get their news from it, seeing it as typically more in-depth, more accurate, or otherwise providing the news they wanted.
And then Al Gore invented in the #internet in the 90s and newspapers began their steady decline. Now the majority of news is gathered #online—whether it's fake or not! (And as much as I dislike the term "fake news" being thrown around as frequently as it is, if you look at the "news" headlines posted by some of your friends, you'll notice that a hefty amount of it is definitely not accurate ... and possibly not even remotely true. FYI, Disney is NOT giving away free tickets to Disney World to celebrate its 25th/50th/75th anniversary 😜) Anyhow, celebrate the newspaper carrier today!

A little #chubby. Kinda sorta #pale 😂 It's been over a month since I successfully ran for more than ten minutes at one time, or even successively ran intervals at all. Once I hit 10-15 minutes I was done.
I finally gave in and went to urgent care and now, with #albuterol before and after a run, I can breathe again. Last #run my legs felt like they were filled with lead, probably because they're still getting accustomed to being used in that way again, but this run was 100% runner's high, in spite of my somewhat slowing pace over my four ten minute intervals (separated by 60 seconds of walking)--8:29, 8:48, 9:09, 9:08 min/mi.
I'm excited to be back at it 😊
