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!

Day 200!

Met with my client in Danbury, CT to show a few condo rentals.  Our first stop was in New Milford where we viewed 3 units.  We took the newly added exit 13 off Super 7 – which cut our time substantially – to get to New Milford …

            Viewed 2 industrial styled rental units in this renovated Flour, Grain & Feed building

We ended with viewing a condo in Danbury and then I was off on errands.  First, a quick stop at A&P – and then the Car Wash on Padanaram Road…

 

 

Then it was back home to set up my appointments for tomorrows showings.

Day 190:

Wednesday!  Stopped by the office, then a trip to the bank and A&P in Brewster, NY.  I couldn’t believe how many seagulls there was in the parking lot…

 Then Ma and I grabbed some lunch and it was back home to get some work done before my meeting with Network for Free.  This evening, we had a Speed Networking event in Danbury, CT.  We grouped into two’s – had a few minutes to exchange business cards and discuss what we did.  I met a fellow Realtor, some Tech and Marketing people, an Antique Restorations person and many more!  During this time, we were taken aside and given a few minutes to shoot a video with Mike Evans  – Digital Video Productionsand discuss what we do and offer to the public. I can’t wait to see mine to see if what I asked for was done – take 10 pounds and 10 years off my appearance – LOL!

               Leader of our group – Scott Blanchard – Loan Officer – Mortgage Force Newtown, CT 

The event was held at PES – Plaza Executive Suites and what a wonderful evening it was!

At the top of our list of things to do today is – LAUNDRY!  My mother and I took 8 loads to Laundry Plus in Brewster, NY – about 15 minutes from home

We put everything to wash and took off to A&P for some grocery shopping – a few phone calls and e-mails came in during our adventure at the laundry mat

After shopping, we went back to the laundry mat – threw everything into dryers and then went for a quick lunch – also in the same shopping center.  Came back – folded and left to get gas and a stop at the Brewster Post Office.

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 161:

Busy – Busy – Busy…. Getting ready for New Years!  Today after working and doing a few things at home, Ma and I was off to do our grocery shopping.  We went into Danbury and first stopped at A & P – then Costco and our last stop was Stew Leonards.  We had fun trying the food samples and both Costco and Stew Leonards – our favorite was the Stew Leonards chicken salad!

When we came home, it must have taken us an hour to divide everything between both refrigerators and cabinets.  Tomorrow, we will start our baking.

Remi is still in love with his new toy from Christmas…
