It’s Friday! Busy day…
Morning appointment in Brookfield, CT – one condo with a new client – a very sweet newlywed. Then, off to my second appointment. Also in Brookfield with a gentleman who viewed a listing sheet from my brochure box in front of my listing…
Then my mother and I went to lunch at Panera Bread…
Then we did some grocery shopping at Shop Rite…
We’re having a seafood dinner tonight, but I’ll let you in on a little secret – I don’t care for seafood!
Then back into New Fairfield for a quick stop at Shaws for pellets and then back home to do some work before an evening appointment in Danbury to view a few townhouses again in the Rivington complex with first time home buyers. We were there until 8:45pm – and had a grand old-time!

Lake Carmel – a picture I took last Fall
Did some work – errands – and home to make dinner and tend to the kids – pets and house – and, very, very grateful that Jonathan’s soccer practice was canceled! That’s one less thing on my “To Do” list.

Rain, rain, rain… It came down as a heavy downpour and for quite awhile – flooding was everywhere, road blocks were up and even torn up roadways – it was crazy! And where was I in this mess – ?? Putting up a new sign in front of my Brookfield listing.
After the sign was up, I went home – which took about 45 minutes instead of 15 due to the storm. I picked up my youngest, Jonathan, and took him to the local barber – Roberts Barber Shop near the New Fairfield Post Office. They always take their time and do a great job – better yet, with my crazy schedule, walk-ins are welcome. Then off to Shaw’s and… I couldn’t resist – since Joe is in Portugal – we had Chinese for dinner – Yum!

Oh, but before this appointment, my husband, who had been working the night shift, called at about 6:40 am with news that I’ve always feared – he’d had an accident on I-684 and probably totaled his car.
Thankfully, he has not a scratch on him. When I picked him up, he was shaken, but kept saying he wasn’t going to think about it, since it could have been so much worse.
Since Joe had worked through the night, he slept as I went to my appointment in Brookfield - then went on a few errands… dropped off the Citizen News newspaper and Pennysaver to my clients that just purchased a home in my hometown – New Fairfield, CT. Went to the bank – first to Savings Bank of Danbury in New Fairfield -
Savings Bank of Danbury – New Fairfield, CT
Then HSBC in Brewster, NY
Took Amanda and Sara to the library – I swear they could read a book a day – and a treat at Sprinkles Ice Cream in New Fairfield. Went to Shaw’s… Yes, I went food shopping…. again. Made dinner - beef stew with carrots, squash, broccoli, beans, rice and salad – a real easy dinner for all 7 of us. Made us realize how very lucky we are.

It’s Wednesday – Hump Day – Yahoo! Allstate Insurance adjuster came over to view some smoke damage in our home. Before he arrived, I make sure all the rooms were as neat as a pin – I have a bit of OCD – always have, always will.
Worked on a CMA for past clients that may be interested in selling their home.
Dealing with an offer on a foreclosure and another on a short sale.
And… here is my new listing!! 150 Pocono Road ~ Brookfield, CT – CLICK

It’s almost Thanksgiving – and I’ll have about 30 somewhat family and friends over. So it’s not 1, but 2 Turkeys that I will be roasting and many potatoes to be peeled, boiled and mashed along with preparing some treats to be served when my hungry guests arrive – some of which will be traveling up I-684 from Mt. Vernon, NY. Others will be coming from Brookfield, CT and my sis lives here in New Fairfield, CT – just minutes away from my home.

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving Day – I have been very fortunate this past year and my family and I have many Thanks to be given AND I can’t wait for a slice of PUMPKIN PIE!
A Very Happy Thanksgiving to you and your Family!
Boy is it COLD outside! Yesterday, I showed a home in Brookfield, CT – nice, cozy - warm cape. My clients took their time and checked everything out – the way viewing homes should be. Then we made our way into Danbury, CT- Brrrr!!! We viewed two Foreclosures – with no HEAT!! Both had been winterized so that the pipes wouldn’t freeze – too bad I did! By the second home, my toes and hands were numb and my nose was running – but I couldn’t feel it! I DON’T know how people work outdoors - like my husband.
My state of mind says it’s only November and technically we are still in the Fall season – but – Mother Nature seems to want winter here – NOW! So, lesson learned for me – time to wear a winter coat – scarf – warm boots AND bring something warm to drink for me and my clients!
In New Fairfield, CT, we received an “Alert Now” message saying that the Senior Rec Center would be open all day for anyone needing shelter from this severe heat and humidity - and that CANDLEWOOD LAKE would be open – a GREAT place to cool off!
Now, most of the homes on and near the lake, are used all year round. They also have Lake Associations with clubhouses, beaches and private docks.
Candlewood Lake has been a favorite for residents and visitors to boat, fish, water-ski and jet-ski – or to just sit back, relax and enjoy the view!
WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?
Thanks for GOOGLE IMAGERY
Can you believe it’s Memorial Day – weekend already! I tend to associate this time with going to the beach – which most people do – BUT, it’s too cold! Although, it’s perfect weather for having the family over for a barbecue!
If your looking for tips on what to make – or what to bring – The Food Network has great ideas like – Corn, Avocado & Tomato Salad, Long Island Green Tea and Banana Smores! One good tip is to maybe just pick 1 or 2 new recipes to incorporate into your menu. Also, plan ahead, make a list and have the kids help. And most importantly, make sure your guests have a designated driver.
My husband and I will be having our families over – his coming up from Mount Vernon, NY and my brother coming from Brookfield, CT and my sister making a very long trip from her home to mine… just 5 minutes away in New Fairfield, CT!
I wish you and your family a happy and safe Memorial Day – Weekend!
