The days of Summer are drawing to a close. Did you feel like you missed some opportunities to play while the kids were out of school? This week, I’m going to focus on finding activities the whole family might enjoy. Let’s make good use of the time before school scheduling sets in to enjoy some family time.

Have fun, and if you and your family are planning a move, I’d love to help you buy or sell an East Bay home. It would be my pleasure.

If you’re moving to another area, I can refer you to a trustworthy Coldwell Banker agent wherever you want or need to go in the US or the world. Coldwell Banker is an international real estate company.

Just call me.  I’m easy to get a hold of.  As so many of us do, I carry my office with me wherever I go, so phone or text 510-418-1306  and you’ll probably reach me. 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 or linkedIn.

If you want to get a feel for what’s going on in the East Bay Real Estate market check out my My Web Site to discover homes on the market–neighborhood by neighborhood–almost as soon as they’re posted on the MLS!

After a brief hiatus, I’m back to writing about Bay Area Events.

Why? Because there’s something so quintessential about the variety of things to do here. To me, they seem to represent the diversity of lifestyles available when you live here.

For folks who dream of moving here, or for those who just moved in or have lived here for years, I want to present a little taste of what’s available–sometimes for kids but mostly for adults–that continue to make make life in this community sweet, enjoyable and a lot of fun.

Here’s some activities I discovered going on March 22 thru the 27th:

TUESDAY MARCH 22

It was famous in the ‘60s and still in the news today. Learn more about its past and possible future.

WEDNESDAY MARCH 23

If you’re looking to buy or sell an East Bay home, I can help you on both sides of the table. If you’re wanting to move to another area, I can refer you to a trustworthy Coldwell Banker agent wherever you go. Coldwell Banker is an international real estate company.

So call me.  I’m easy to get a hold of.  As so many of us do, I carry my office with me wherever I go, so phone 510-527-0174.  and you’ll probably reach me. I’m never too busy to take care of you– or your rmeferrals–and I’ll make sure you’re glad you called.

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
See the SF Ballet for FREE at Stern Grove

What’s Next: Picnic in a Stable & Free Fun 4 YOU.

goldenrolling

Our extended clan got together in Livermore last weekend for a cousin reunion.  Everyone brought (delicious) food, there was  barbecue and lemonade provided,  and photos of past and present family events adorned the walls.  A video included our parents (who are no longer physically with us but certainly with us in spirit) which expanded and enhanced the family-feeling.

And all this took place in the training area of a stable.

Yes, It took a barn to hold us and keep all of us protected from the blazing hot sun outside–yet the high ceilings and wide open doorways framing gorgeous views of  California’s famous golden rolling hills and blue, blue sky made for an unforgettably pleasant open-air experience.

All and all, it was great fun seeing how our family has grown and comparing notes about life in California and beyond.

More locally, and speaking of fun, here’s a short list of free fun activities in the Bay Area this week.

TUESDAY JUNE 16TH
Collaborate on the construction of a whimsical airship built by local artist Bernie Lubell

WEDNESDAY JUNE 17TH
First day of the Alameda County Fair: Admission $1!!

THURSDAY JUNE 18TH
