What’s Next? VACATION time & East Bay Free Fun

LEO

August is the coolest month as far as I’m concerned.  Why? because this is my birth month (hurray for me!) and that’s great but better yet, in a few weeks we’re going on vacation.

We’re road-tripping up north, praying for rain just to feel it’s cool freshness on our skin; but the usual drippy-ness of northern climes are elusive this year.  The weather has been so hot the average river temperature is in the 60’s, which is very hard on spawning salmon.

The drought is hard on all of us on the Best Coast, so no matter what you do this summer, save water, pray for El Nino, and have fun!

For those of you staycationing, here’s some free fun for you for the month of August

I hope you’ll enjoy the rest of your summer, and remember to be sure to give me a call if you’re thinking of  buying or selling a home, and for any and all of your other real estate needs.  Just phone 510-527-0174 .  I’m never too busy to take care of you– or your referrals–and I’ll make sure you’re glad you called.

Get to know me! Check me out on facebook, linkedIn or see my other online presences. I have two sites made just for you.If you want to get a feel for what’s going on in the East Bay Real Estate market

Check out my My New Site to discover homes on the market–neighborhood by neighborhood–almost as soon as they’re posted on the MLS!

If you’re a BUYER go to That House Detective
If you’re a SELLER go to What’s Next Homes.

Whatever your real estate need,  I’m happy to help!

What’s Next: My Anniversary and Bay Area Free Fun

I don’t know if you noticed, but I usually skip a free activity on Monday.  Monday is the one day when just getting it together can be tough. It often takes a lot of energy just to make that first cup of coffee hoping it will help us rise up and meet the day.

Seizing the day is just not on.

But this year it has to be, because my wedding anniversary is next Monday.  I’m not saying which year, but the traditional gift for it is either something made with coral or jade; coral representing fertility and jade longevity.  I guess our three kids is proof we went through the coral years rather earlier in our marriage, so Jade it is.

Now, what will we do?  If any of you have any ideas, let me know! Here’s some ideas for you if you’re looking for FREE fun and enlightenment for the coming week.

TUESDAY JULY 21ST
Learn more about our starry, starry nights in SF

WEDNESDAY JULY 22ND
Walk and Wag in Emeryville, including a pet psychic

THURSDAY JULY 23RD
The SF Mime Troupe performs in Oakland

FRIDAY JULY 24TH
Last Day of the Rangoli Art Walk in San Ramon

SATURDAY JULY 25TH
Japanese Summer Bazaar in Berkeley

SUNDAY JULY 26TH

Whatever you do, have a great time, and REMEMBER. . .

berkeley-vegan-earth-day

Things are getting lively in the Bay Area.  Festivals galore are coming up! This week alone we have the NOW festival, Oakland Veg Week, and Bay Area Dance Week starting up.  The weather has remained gorgeous, so outdoor entertainment is not so hit or miss as it has been in Aprils of yore where it was customary to  wear layers, bring umbrellas and mock tourists shivering in their flowered shirts, bermuda shorts and sleeveless dresses.

However you’re dressed (I’m still wearing layers, thank you very much) I hope you enjoy all the free activities this week.  Here’s a list of a few of them, one for each day.

TUESDAY APRIL 21
NOW festival in the Panhandle: lots of free fun to be had

WEDNESDAY APRIL 22
Save Water. Go Vegan. Oakland Veg Week tells you how.

THURSDAY APRIL 23
Warriors Playoff Parties

FRIDAY APRIL 24

What’s Next: Free Fun with My Daughter in Mind

Thank-Heaven-For-Little-Girls-statuary-in-Nancys-Garden

I  grew up without a sister.  Sure, my mom was a constant, supportive presence in my life, but I never had to butt heads with a female sibling, so I wasn’t as prepared as some when we had our second child.

My daughter was born 30 years ago today.

She was the first of her sex for us and both sets of grandparents, and visions of dolls, girly outfits, and shopping sprees wafted through the minds of wife and grandmothers alike.  I don’t know what I expected. Possibly a gentler, easy, more pliable child then high energy boys.

Little did any of us know what a singular, amazing girl she would turn out to be, strong in head and heart.  No one made a doll out of her. She graced our family with lessons in authenticity and self-possession.    I would say she’s one of the strongest people I know, and she continues to be an inspiration in all our lives.

Today’s list of free fun was designed with her in mind, based on her varied interests.  Strolls around flower gardens, respect for women, innovative art of all kinds, and a love of the exotic are all things she would approve of.  I hope you enjoy these as well.

TUESDAY APRIL 14TH
Free admission to the SF Botanical Gardens: Perfect Spring Event

WEDNESDAY APRIL 15TH
Science not for girls? Not according to Rachel Swaby.

THURSDAY APRIL 16TH
Piedmont Avenue Art Stroll

FRIDAY APRIL 17TH

SATURDAY APRIL 18TH
The famous Cal Day: loads of free events, education & fun

SUNDAY APRIL 19TH
Cherry Blossom Festival Grand Parade

One a Day Fun in the Bay Area

Old Friends, Good Times

.


This weekend I had the pleasure of reuniting with a group of friends I’ve known since middle school (that’s me on the far right). We talked and laughed about our boy scout days, the trouble we got into, the times we had and the times that followed. 

As we got older we went our seperate ways. Life, as it does, threw us in different directions. Some went into the army, some went to college, but all of us realized that despite our varied lives we will always have each other in common.

And speaking of good times and memory making, here’s some local FREE activities that you might enjoy.

TUESDAY APRIL 29TH
NOW Panhandle Festival in San Francisco

WEDNESDAY APRIL 30TH

THURSDAY MAY 1ST
Schedule for Free Dance Classes for the Bay Area Dance Week 

FRIDAY MAY 2ND
Jack’s Night Market Opening at Jack London Square

SATURDAY MAY 3RD
Sick Plant Clinic at the Berkeley Botanical Garden

SUNDAY MAY 4TH
Asian Art Museum Free Admission Day

Have a great week!

Whether you’re moving in or out of this amazing Bay Area, I’d be honored to help. 

For SELLERS, I’ll help you prepare and market your home for sale that will give it the widest appeal and best exposure; thus attracting a bevy of buyers and the best chance for multiple offers and competitive bidding. To learn more, go to go to What’s Next Homes.

For BUYERS I’ll set up an REAlert account that will search the MLS real estate site–using requirements that you provide–for properties that meet your needs.  Once found, pictures and details will be delivered directly to your email courtesy of Coldwell Banker! 

It’s the best way for you to get a look at first-time-on-the-market properties; and this saves you wasted time and disappointment that happens when you find the perfect home but discover it’s already been sold, a common occurance when using the usual home finding sites like Trulio, Zillow, etc.  They are fun to search, but their information is often out of date. Not so with REAlert.

If you’re specifically interested in high walk score homes, click here to find those that are currently on the market in great East Bay neighborhoods. To learn more, go to go to That House Detective

Or, just give me a call at 510-527-0174.
