Happy April!

Laughter is the theme this month because we start today with April Fool's Day. Are you a prankster or the creator of pranks? Whichever it is, have fun with it!.

My 'sources' tell me they've dedicated April as "Holy Humor Month". and I say we could use some laughter in our lives with all that is going on around us. So let's unite and take advantage of this, as laughter is the best medicine.

Typically, this season gives us the itch to refresh, renovate and/or even repurpose our home. From the list below, you will see some celebratory dates that involve outside activities because our spring and summer feels so short. You don't have to do it all at once, but having a 'to-do list' and a plan always works!  

Celebrating April:
  • Home improvement time!
  • (from April to September)
  • National Decorating Month
  • National Garden Month
  • National Lawn Care Month
  • Landscape & Architecture Month
  • Lawn Care Month

Wishing you a very Happy Easter!!
Before You Move...

I want you to consider a few things before you put the For Sale sign up because this is a big decision that affects you and your family. Here are some tips that will help you get the most for your property. 

Choose the right renovation
Big-ticket items like a new roof, windows or a furnace add the most value.

Keep your home clean
If you think staged homes look impersonal, that’s the whole point—you want your buyer to imagine themselves living in your house. Be prepared to get rid of clutter.

Fix little signs of wear and tear Even if your home is otherwise in great shape, the buyer may perceive it as needing work, which could hurt you in price negotiations.

Choose your price wisely - Consider setting a price that’s at market value for your area. This can help generate offers for your listing and it can create a buzz!

Be flexible - Broadening your parameters can lead to a great find.

Stick to your budgetResist the urge to look at homes beyond your price range, even if the market is red-hot. Those monthly mortgage payments are relentless and they add up over time.

Trust your selling agent and them everything about your home - Any flaws you knowingly conceal—lead in the drinking water, for instance—could come back to haunt you later in the form of a lawsuit.

Carrot Cake


2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
4 fresh whole eggs
2 cups pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 cups raw finely ground carrots
4 ounces finely chopped walnuts

1 1/2 pounds powdered sugar
12 ounces room temperature cream cheese
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 ounces room-temperature margarine

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl, mix sugar, vegetable oil, and eggs. In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.

Fold dry ingredients into wet mixture and blend well.
Fold in carrots and chopped nuts until well blended.

Distribute batter evenly into 3 (9-inch) cake layer pans, which have been generously greased.
There will be approximately 1 pound 5 ounces of batter per pan.

Place in preheated oven and bake for 50 to 60 minutes.
Cool layers in pans, for approximately 1 hour.
Store layers in pans, inverted, in a closed cupboard, to prevent drying. Layers must be a minimum of 1 day old.

To remove layers from baking pan, turn upside down, tap the edge of pan on a hard surface. Center a 9-inch cake circle on top of revolving cake stand. Remove paper from bottom of layer cake. 

For the frosting: 
In a suitable bowl of large mixer, place powdered sugar, cream cheese, vanilla, and margarine. Beat at second speed until thoroughly blended. Hold refrigerated and use as needed.

For the assembly
Place first layer, bottom side down, at center of cake stand.
With a spatula, evenly spread approximately 3 1/2 ounces of frosting on the layer.
Center second layer on top of first layer with topside down.
Again with a spatula, evenly spread approximately 3 1/2 ounces of frosting on the layer.
Center third layer on top of second layer with topside down.
Using both hands, press firmly but gently, all layers together to get one firm cake.
With spatula, spread remainder of frosting to cover top and sides of cake.
Refrigerated until needed. Display on counter or cake stand with a plastic cover.
