My Life as a Realtor – Day 156

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 156:

Happy Christmas Eve!!!

We were all invited to go to my brother’s house in Brookfield, CT for our Christmas Eve dinner, opening some gifts and most especially, some family time together.  My mom has been with my brother and his family for a few days now to help them get ready. 

Work was quiet and that was alright since there was much to do.  The girls and I baked cookies, Melissa made a French Apple Tart and Amanda and I made a quick stop at Shaw’s and the liquor store.  We were finally ready to leave by 5:30 and arrived to wonderful Christmas Eve appetizers and a beautifully set table awaiting its guests.

Here are some moments of our Christmas Eve…

A Cozy Fire

A Beautiful Tree

Eating, eating… and more eating!

 Fun Opening Gifts

Watching the Little Ones Playing with New Toys

and a special Thanks to our Hosts…

My Brother Louie & Sister-in-Law Leia

Then it was back home, where we left our lights on while we slept and waited for Santa…

Ho! Ho! Ho!

My Day as a Realtor ~

Day 53:

OK – Saturday – Joe is moving quickly with our kitchen renovation – we – or he – is painting the kitchen cabinetsGlidden’s Linen White – and a few more touches – real, real inexpensive and I can’t believe the difference already!


Today I was Joe’s right hand man – went to Home Depot in Brewster, NY for a few things…

Then to HomeDepot in Danbury, CT  for a few more things…


Then to A & P in Brewster, NY for MORE groceries and MORE mums – hey, for $4 each, I couldn’t resist!


Throughout the day, I e-mailed and spoke with clients – then, Hubby-Hub and I – and my sis Lisa and brother-in-law, Richie – went out to dinner to the Portuguese Cultural Center in Danbury, CTCaravela Restaurant.  Good food, good wine, really good company!

Home for Dinner

Having dinner at home will save you money – is healthier than dinning out – and is a great for family together time

Some of my clients have mentioned that during their dinner time, they spend much of it going over homes they’ve viewed with me and discussing other potential listings I’ve sent them on-line.

Today is Tuesday – that means I have 2 more days to prepare for Thanksgiving Dinner – Yikes!  My guests will be arriving at around 1pm – so it’s actually a late lunch, early dinner by the time we sit down and give “Thanks”.

My sister has e-mailed a few recipe ideas – wonder why she thinks I need them??

Some are from The Food Network – watch videos and get tons of recipes, hints and ideas for Thanksgiving from Emeril “BAM”, Rachael Ray “EVOO”, Paula Dean “Hi Y’all” – and all the Food Network Stars. Even if it’s to make one dish a little different.
