Monday Morning: Nurturing Ourselves and Appreciating Others

Real Estate Broker/Owner with CELLing Realty CalBRE #01445865

Monday Morning.....and I have a treat.  I actually shared it the other night with a couple people, but now I have more for all of us.  Coffee and Cinnamon rolls are the order of the morning.  Seriously if you had a good cup of coffee, or tea, and the house smelled of wonderful things baking wouldn't your morning start off good?  I say go treat yourself.  We all should be nurturing ourselves, and finding ways to reduce the stress of the economy.  Me, I'll take the sweet rolls and coffee please :)


Coffee and Cinnamon Rolls





















Along with nurturing ourselves, it's also a good idea to show appreciation to others.  So here are my Monday Gifts:

Gift #1- I'm not sure if Cinnamon Rolls and Coffee are what I think of when I think of Jason Sardi  but I can say that Jason has been a giving and entertaining member of this community for a long time.  The entertaining part is easy to see, as is the knowledgeable, but it's the caring Jason that I like the best.  I would recommend anyone to him in a heartbeat, and know that they would be well taken care of.  Thanks Jason for everything you have given to us......well, almost everything  :)


Gift#2-  My second Gift for the day would have to be Neal Bloom. Talk about someone that gives and gives.....that would be Neal.  He runs several Groups here on Active Rain, and every week works with a volunteer to find the best of the weeks Posts.  No easy task, but one he has consistently performed.  But above and beyond this Neal's integrity is what I like the best. So if anyone is looking around Weston, Florida for an experienced REALTOR (R) with integrity, call Neal.


Both of these guys are true Gifts......and I can't imagine someone not knowing them, but if you don't grab a roll and go say hello. 


***Have a good week everyone***

Kathy, Cinnamon Rolls, and a cup of the Coffee that Sally sent me sounds reeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaal good right about now.  I would say something nice about Neal, but after this we need to keep his head in check :) :)

Hi Sally- Well, it's night time now for me...but hey I will make cinnamon rolls for you and anyone else that wants some :)  I like your gifts that keep on giving and isn't that the truth ...

George-Ok, we'll drink Sally's coffee, and eat fresh pastry while you contemplate what you want to say about Neal :)

Monika-Hey, I wasn't invited to the wedding...I'll go find Jennifer, maybe she'll invite me LOL :)  I wished I had gone to the NAR conference and met Neal in person.....but hey one of these days, for now it's just emails, and phone :)

How did I miss you yesterday?  Oh, I know, the alarm didn't go off and I had to haul butt out the door and did not check email first or AR, then I had to write a contract, then my new assistant, then - oh who knows what else.  Sorry I missed this yesterday.  I just love Jason, he is the best.  Sometimes I am not so swift at keeping up with his prose, but it still makes me feel smart reading it. LOL :)

Neal I don't know so well.  I will have to get right over and check things out.   You are sweet to give kudos to your friends.

So if I come down to California and stop off, is this what is to be expected if I show up on your door step on a Monday morning?

I love cinnamon roles  (orange cranberry muffins are my fave) and both Jason and Neal are great bloggers here in the Rain as well as community participants.
