Today is a wonderful day!
I've been putting in l-o-o-o-n-g hours lately; 70 of them the first week in November, 50 this week. They've been successful hours, with 3 pending sales in escrow at present. One is set to close 11/28/12; one 12/5/12; one 12/14/12. It's a great way to wrap up the year.
I hadn't had a day off for 13 days, and that wears on one. However, this weekend has refreshed and revived me.
Yesterday I worked only 3.5 hours, taking care of paperwork for one of the 3 pending sales; half the day was spent house cleaning (PS: I hate dusting!) I did manage a quick-paced walk to my branch library (more about that another time) and then a 5-block dash in the rain with my husband, daughter and son-in-law to a favorite neighborhood restaurant (another blog post to come.) By the time I went to bed, I felt refreshed, relaxed, healthy and happy. A perfect set-up for a wonderful day today.
This is a great day:
- 8:00 AM -- wake up (a luxury for a 5:30 AM riser)
- 9:00 AM -- quick paced 1.3 mile walk down the hill to the Marina Green to watch my son-in-law tackle one of the obstacles in the Urbanathlon
- 10:00 AM -- strolled over to the nearby Farmers' Market at Fort Mason. Purchased: 2 Bartlett pears, 1 Asian pear, large golden raisins, shelled walnut halves, grape tomatoes, 2 bunches red seedless grapes, 2 small onions, 1 bunch young carrots, 1 bunch golden beets, 6 boiling potatoes, button mushrooms, green beans, 2 Meyer lemons, a piece of swordfish, a wedge of Nicasio Valley rubbed-rind cheese, and fresh sourdough bread. And for breakfast: 2 freshly cooked potstickers. (I definitely am a fan of our year-round farmers' markets here in SF.)
- 11:00 AM -- back at the house with my freshly showered and happy son-in-law, daughter and husband, enjoying nibbles from the Farmers' Market. (All tomatoes are gone; we did a great job on the cheese, too.)
- Noon -- cleaning up my real estate signs from last weekend's open houses (townhouse sold on Wednesday), sorting through our storage cage in our condo; putting everything in it's place
- 2:00 PM -- Computer time! Active Rain time! Weekly planning time! Time for personal emails and photo organization!
- 4:30 PM -- early supper cooked by my husband - swordfish, green beans, bread from the Farmers' Market.
- 6:00 - 8:00 PM -- my time! Time to put the music on, read, enjoy a cup of ginger tea. Time to check into Active Rain again. Time for phone calls to family.
- 8:30 PM -- Quick walk 1.2 miles to Davies Symphony Hall to hear a short (15-minute) concert by amateur musicians, my husband among them, and then a walk home together.
Did I say this has been a great day?
