My Life as a Realtor – Day 261 thru 343

HELLO!!!   I can’t believe I have not written a “My Life as a Realtor” post since a few days after Easter!  Why you ask – busy – busy – busy and I couldn’t be happier!

So, from April 8th – Day 261 – until today – June 28th – Day 343 – I have had many appointments – family functions – Happy moments and not so happy moments – classes, meetings and oogles of family time! 

Here are a few candid moments…

Appointments with clients – I loved this railing – not your typical “all wood” railing

My Life as a Realtor – Day 256

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 256:

Saturday….  my first appointment was over in Heritage Hills in Somers NY

 

My 2nd appointment was showing a few homes in Katonah and North Salem NY.

Our 1st home had a striking red door and interesting door knocker…

My final, evening appointment was back with my client from yesterday to the new Rivington complex in Danbury CT

 

My client brought her husband along and they were so sweet together. 

Then, it was back to mommy mode – food shopping and dinner was on my mind.  So, I stopped at Shaw’s at 7:30 at night to find almost nothing!  I had lot’s to pick from at home, but was hoping to pick something up that was quick to make.  Unfortunately, Shaw’s is closing 😦  and Stop & Shop in coming to New Fairfield!   In the end, I made a very difficult decision and bought Chinese Food for dinner… he – he!

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 240:

This morning I did as much work as I possibly could before my sister picked my mom and I up for an afternoon out.

Our road trip took us past Lake Zoar and the Stevenson Dam in Stevenson CT

Then to DWS Shoes in Orange CT

 

I was like a kid in a candy shop – but I behaved and didn’t buy anything 😦

Then we made our way back to Danbury CT for some delicious pizza and… food shopping!  Thanks to my sister, I – for the very 1st time – shopped at Trader Joe’s

Afterwards, we took a quick peek in Annie Sez

Then my sis took the scenic way home – through the Aunt Hack area in Danbury passing Richter Park

Day 239:

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

Joe and I started dating on St. Patrick’s Day – 26 years ago – Whew!  How time flies – really!

Today, I went nowhere and it felt good.  I was able to remain focused on my work and sometimes I can’t believe how many hours I can spend on the computer without taking a bathroom break! 

We had another warm – Spring like day today.  Here is a picture of my tulips blooming…

Day 238:

Lot’s of work to do again today  and I’m happy to report that the rain and clouds are gone and it is an absolute gorgeous day!!  Spring isn’t until Saturday, although it has arrived today – Yeah! 

Here is a pic of a beautiful – and thawed – Ball Pond

As I made my way to the office, I realized quickly that I was over dressed.  This happens every Spring –  I’m afraid of being cold, so I still wear turtle necks and coats and sweat my buns off!

After going to the office, I stopped at A&P in Brewster – yes, FOOD SHOPPING AGAIN!

When I arrived home, my mom and David had made a wonderful dinner – our very 1st barbecue of the season – and – we even ate outside…

Day 237:

It’s Monday – a day to catch up on work since I was out all weekend showing homes – how wonderful!

Even though I made a quick trip to the A&P in Brewster yesterday in-between appointments, I had to go grocery shopping again today – gosh, if I only had the past 10 years of what I’ve spent on food – I’d be rich! 

So, a quick trip to Shaws – and to buy pellets – gas up David’s car – back home and back to work until it was time to deliver Amanda’s dinner at school while she continues with theatre practice for the big show this coming weekend at New Fairfield High School!

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 235:

Rain, rain go away…

A very rainy Saturday as I met with new clients in Brewster NY.  We viewed a total of 5 homes and I was soaked as I made my way to the office to wait for appointment #2 – which happen to be with a very good friend of mine.  We viewed 3 homes and had a ball – wet and all!

Here is a list of the homes I viewed with my first appointment…

  1. 814 Route 22 – Brewster NY
  2. 2617 Carmel Ave – Brewster NY
  3. 47 North Brewster Rd – Brewster NY
  4. 7 W Worthington – Carmel NY
  5. 50 Homer Dr – Brewster NY

My 2nd appointment included a Historic home in Patterson NY.  I always enjoy viewing older homes and seeing each and every detail and wondering how families first lived there…

Here are the homes we viewed…

  1. 2629 Carmel Ave – Brewster NY ~~ CLICK ~~
  2. 2643 Route 22 – Patterson NY ~~ CLICK ~~
  3. 750 Milltown Rd – Brewster NY ~~ CLICK ~~

I arrived home in the evening – just in time for a great dinner that my son David made.  Then, computer work and got myself ready for tomorrow’s appointment.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 234

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 234:

Yahoo – everyone knows I love my Fridays!  Today, I got a kick out of watching Remi watching Tisha.  First, he noticed her near the couch…

Then he watched her carefully going around the couch…

and finally, after he whined and made noise loud enough so that she would look up at him…

Remi loves Tisha so very much – she, on the other hand, has a kind of love for him that comes and goes – it’s only when she feels like it.  She’s tiny, but she is the boss and can be feisty if he pushes her!

Then, Ma and I went to Shaws for some grocery shopping and recycling…

My Life as a Realtor – Day 233

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 233:

It is Thursday and once again – busy, busy – can’t seem to catch up – but loving every single minute of being a Realtor.  I have a busy weekend coming up and I am looking forward to it!  Especially since I will be meeting new clients.

Today, Ma and I took a trip to Brookfield, CT – to my brother’s house. 

I love that this warmer weather is bringing more little critters out and about.  At home, we always make sure to have our bird feeders filled – especially in the winter months.  The pic above is one of my brothers bird houses.

This bird feeder is the most used of all of our birds – I wonder if it is the house shape – since our other feeders are round and boxy shaped – Hmm??

After a quick visit with my sister-n-law and the kids, Ma and I stopped at Walmart

 

Then back home and back to work until it was time to drop off dinner again for Amanda…

And once again, back home and back to work!

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 232:

I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday – aka Garbage Day!  Ma – along with the pups – helped me bring all the garbage and recycling down.  You could imagine how much rubbish a family of 7 + Ma = 8 can make!

Then it was work, work, work and a quick trip to Shaws – and yes, you can also imagine how much food a family of 8 can consume!

Today is Tax Day!  My accountant’s office is in Rutherford, NJ – and he is worth the ride.  My mother and I went and she snapped a few photos of our drive over the Tappan Zee Bridge

It was late afternoon when we arrived home – then it was time for errands – picked up Melissa after her shift at Sprinkles in New Fairfield

and a trip to New Fairfield High School to drop off dinner for Amanda.  She has been practicing for the upcoming Spring play.  A few more errands – then dinner – back out to pick up Amanda from practice and finally – time to work!
