Chilled to the bone five times today, I closed out the day by bringing home some House Special Soup from Chan's Restaurant. After she took my take-out order, Kiki brought me hot tea to drink while I waited. My family and I love Chan's, and it is our Saturday lunch destination every weekend, so Kiki and Niki (wife and husband proprietors) were somewhat taken aback when I showed up on Friday evening.
Not to worry, though, I will be back tomorrow with the family. Tonight, I needed the soup and hot tea when I finally wrapped up the day's business after 8:30 pm. I sometimes refer to it as "Chan's Magical Soup," while invoking its magic to ward off illness or to chase away illness. Tonight is going to be the coldest night of the season, and today was windy with falling temperatures.
My daughter and I are trying to get four new pre-list foreclosures through the cash for keys (in lieu of eviction), rekey, property preservation, valuation and pre-marketing processes. Today, I took inside and outside photos of three cold houses, as well as finalizing a cash for keys transaction, doing an occupancy check, and meeting a vendor who was preparing a trashout bid. Two additional trips outside involved meeting an insurance adjuster and, finally, attending a closing!
A very busy December will mean a comfortable number of January listings to see me through the coldest month of the new year.
Thanks to Chan's Magical Soup and a warm pair of pj's, I'm now toasty!
PS: Chan's is located at 1159 N. Kingshighway in Cape Girardeau. The soup I refer to in this blog is their House Special Soup. I know that I should have taken a photo to post with this blog, but I admit to eating the evidence...
