My Life as a Realtor ~
It’s Friday – after working a bit, cleaning and spending some time with my mom – it was time to get ready for our Holiday office party at Century 21 VJF Realty. When I arrived, I was starving…
and stuffed by the time I left!
Afterwards, back home – to work and then a trip to Shaws.

My Life as a Realtor ~
Difficult getting out of bed this morning – I was up late last night… again… Ha! Who am I kidding? This has been every night for almost 2 years now!! Between my Searching and Sending Listings – Promoting my Listings – my Blog – Reading and keeping up on all the news, new recipes and tips and sometimes posting on Active Rain, Zillow and Trulia – then there’s Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, You Tube and Flickr – Oh… and my 300′ish e-mails a day. You ask, When do I have time for anything else? One of my favorite words is – Multitasking! that and getting very little sleep! The rings around my eyes are proof! But, I love what I do and hope to one day, when I’m all grown up to be a better writer.
Well enough of that – today, Wednesday – No Realtor Open House Day – Real Estate continues to be melow and that is alright since I’m also cramming in my Christmas Shopping, wrapping and decorating. I’m sure that is what most people are also doing. Although, I do have some clients that are out looking for homes. A few are looking in my home town of New Fairfield, CT. Last week, after our snow fall, we were out and they made a comment about how pretty the snow looked. I agree – here are a few photos I took today after dropping Sara off at school – these were all taken from the New Fairfield High School’s exit…

The Weather Channel announced that we may have snow in the forecast for Christmas! I’m hoping it will be just enough to cover everything with a Frosty White Blanket, but not enough to interfere with all the Holiday Travelers visiting family. We know that Santa can get through any snow storm – but unfortunately, none of us have a sleigh!

I feel like a kid again when I go Holiday Shopping at the Danbury Fair Mall in Danbury, CT.

A Yummy recipe from Jen’s Blog on Homegood’s site:
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread
- 1-15 oz can pure pumpkin
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup oil
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 3-1/2 cups flour
- 3 cups sugar
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups chocolate chips
Combine pumpkin, eggs, oil and water. Mix flour, baking soda, sugar, spices and salt in a separate bowl and add pumpkin mixture. Mix well. Fold in chocolate chips. Place batter into 2 well greased loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until done. Making 2 loafs allows you to share one enjoy the other!
I have so very much to be Thankful for – my family, our health, my and my husband’s job, my country (because I KNOW we will come out of this and be even stronger!), my friends, and my HOME. I am also Thankful for all my past clients that I have assisted in finding their home - where they will have many Holidays, making wonderful memories. AND – I look forward to my future clients and helping them to find a Home for the Holidays as well!
