My Life as a Realtor – Day 4

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 4:

This morning, after making breakfast – a yummy potato omelet & bacon – and adding a new post to my Blog, cleaned the house, washed some laundry, took care of e-mails – and about 15 other things on my list, my family and I got ready to go to Kent Falls – a State Park in Kent, Connecticut.

004                                               Our first site of Kent Falls from the parking lot

003                                                     Walking with our coolers and picnic items

005                                                                  Walking over the bridge

007                                  Water going under the bridge which comes from the falls

011                                                                     Finally…. the Falls!

We met with my sister Lisa and brother-in-law Richie.  My brother, Louie and sister-in-law came afterwards with the kids – Ana Carolina, Isabella and Matheus.  What a wonderful day we had – eating, taking, hiking up the mountain along side the falls – note to self… wear sneakers next time, not flip flops.    I was so thankful for having cell reception since my phone is my life line to Real Estate – I can talk – text – and e-mail clients – from anywhere, anytime.

Afterwards, we had a barbecueat my house and after being eaten alive my mosquitoes, we came in for a movieA perfect end to a perfect day – which I must credit my sister Lisa and Richie for since it was their idea.

To save on my electric bills, I use our ceiling fans more than our central air

Flickr Foto Fun Friday Post – The Month of June

This Friday’s Foto Fun Friday Post are of pics from very talented Flickr folks that have caught images that remind me of the month of June – warm & longer days, barbecues, schools out, going to the beach, the lake and boat rides and vacations!  So very much to do in the month of June!  Where do I begin?  Well, there is this awesome photographer that I happen to stumble upon today on Flickr.comSavannah Grandfather.  Here are just a few of his moments captured on film that remind me of June.

What a great guy – taking pictures of different style homes – just as I would do, especially if I ever have the opportunity to visit Martha’s Vineyard.

SIZZLING HEAT in NY & CT

New York and Connecticut are under a heat advisory  and as the day goes on, temperatures are climbing into dangerous territories.  Many schools are having early dismissal or no school at all due to power outages.

                                         

PLEASE remember WATER, WATER, WATER!!  Drink lots of it – pour it over you – or take a dip in the pool,ocean, lake or jump in the shower!

                                                                                

 

If possible, stay indoors – please leave the yard work for another day! Dehydration and heat exhaustion can hit you quickly and can be very dangerous!

If you need to go out, wear light colored clothing that is loose – and don’t forget a hat and sunscreen AND a water bottle.  

My heart goes out to those who have no power and those who must be out doors due to work – like my husband who’s melting in Manhattan! 

       Thanks to GOOGLE IMAGERY
