Yesterday was my day off for the week, which means I only spent a couple of hours on business-related tasks on the computer.
The rest of the day incorporated some of my favorite things: time spent with family, friends, exercise in the fresh air, enjoying the great beauty of San Francisco, and some great music.
Mid-morning, with my husband and visiting daughter, I popped by my new listing at 234 Byxbee Street, where I met my colleague and went over last minute preparations for today's open house. Then off the 3 of us headed for brunch at The Beach Chalet, where we enjoyed a relaxed lunch overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
We then walked into Golden Gate Park together for about 20 minutes, enjoying the sunshine and natural beauty all around us before the others needed to turn around and get on with their days. I continued zig-zagging my way the length of the park before arriving at my yoga teacher and friend's house for an afternoon event she had planned, after which I walked home, happy, relaxed and energized.
After a quick dinner at home, my husband and I headed down to Davies Symphony Hall to hear Herbert Blomstedt conduct a clarinet concerto and a Schubert symphony. We were awestruck, watching Blomstedt conduct a 55-minute symphony without music, standing tall and erect, energized and energizing the musicians as well as us. At age 86, what a role model for us all.
Today is a different day, with real estate showings and prepping of a listing that will come on the market in 6 short days.
I'll make time today for a short walk or run -- it's how I keep balanced and healthy -- but yesterday's 7.6 mile walk across San Francisco will remain a bright spot in my mind, reminding me of the joy I experience Living my San Francisco Dream
