Mona's Real Estate Matters and a Myriad of Other Conversations: Lazy Sunday? I Don't Know About That

Lazy Sunday? I Don't Know About That

There are no plans to be lazy today but that's okay.  This is a great time of year in Western North Carolina.  The days are still warm, the grass is still green and more importantly the grass isn't growing as fast!

Most of the garden has been harvested and the few cooler weather crops I wanted to experiment with have been planted.  We've only been gardening seriously for a year but I get it now.  I already can't wait until new seed catalogs come out and a chance to do things a little differently next season.

There are a few things that I never expected to be able to cope with in gardening that I actually learned doing real estate.

  • Patience...there is no point getting excited, irate or morose over something you can't control.
  • with it and stay clean yourself.
  • Flexibility...if something didn't work one way, try another.
  • Rescue...if something goes awry (like worms in the garden or a scary but manageable home inspection), research and figure out the solution.
  • Harvest...when all is done, bring things to a close and clean everything up to get ready for the next transaction, I mean season.

We bought some incredible tomatoes in a 25 pound box from the farmer's market in Sylva and they are destined for my wildly successful vegetarian chili recipe.  The pintos have already been cooked.  Now for a slow simmer of the rest of the ingredients and then for the first time, I'm going to try pressure canning some of the batch.  Usually I freeze chili but I'd like to be able to just go to the cupboard and pull out a jar.  We'll see how that goes.

Have a great day off whether it is lazy or not, well, since I'm talking to real estate agents I guess there is an equally good chance you haven't taken the day off!  In that case, I wish you a profitable day.

Good Sunday morning Mona Gersky -

I've been seeing how busy you've been via FB.  You've earned a day of rest and relaxation.  Enjoy in all you do my friend.

Good morning, Mona -- As Roger D. Mucci commented, I also like the correlation you draw between gardening and real estate.   Have a wonderful Sunday.

Hi Mona - Nice analogy. I also have the day off, but I don't have any productive activities planned, just going to nap and recharge while Mary takes care of the biz.
