Pudge and Podge
It was surprising to find it overcast today but at least it did seem to make it up over the predicted 50 degrees.  Being able to go outdoors without layering myself against the cold felt really good while out placing arrow open house signs this morn … continue reading

An Outsider

An Outsider
This was a whoosh day if there ever was one because from the time I arrived at the office and nearly the moment I called it quits, I was in a constant state of motion.  There's no question North Iowa is finally awakening from its long winter slumber … continue reading

Clouds of Gnats

Clouds of Gnats
It was a pleasant sight seeing the full moon in the western sky this morning.  Someone said that this one is supposed to be a super moon, and from the looks of it this morning, I'd say it appeared bigger than normal.  It should be all the brighter … continue reading

Beating Them

Beating Them
In spite of the low-lying areas getting water, we should all be glad that the snow is melting more slowly than if we had instant 50 degree days.  There are still huge piles of snow around town, but that's just OK because it's better to have a slow m … continue reading

Thank heaven we only have one more official winter day to endure before Spring ushers itself in.  I just happened to look at the calendar and noticed that the full moon falls on the vernal equinox.  Hmmm.  I wonder what sort of happenings there wi … continue reading

Old Kitchen Utensils
I was off to a late start this morning with the a few extra errands I needed to run before I arrived at the office.  I did notice how much closer we're getting to the vernal equinox with that early morning sun shining right in my eyes.  As I've men … continue reading

The Kool-Aid

The Kool-Aid
This morning was an early out of the gates for me due to having a 7:15 am appointment at the office. An out-of-State buyer was leaving today on a flight from Minneapolis, and in order to get an offer in on a property, we had to make it as early as po … continue reading

Starched Collar
What a wonderful sunny day we had in spite of it being a little windy. Thank goodness I had my work laid out for me this morning and managed to get it finished up before the phone started ringing because it was definitely a full day.  I was beginnin … continue reading

Rocks Me

Rocks Me
It was a bit of a whirlwind day with setting appointments, showing homes, and working on more correspondence that I needed to get finished and sent out.  I'm still in disbelief it's already the end of Thursday and still not completely caught up from … continue reading

I Told You So!

I Told You So!
There's not much good to be said about getting continuously rained on before this snow is melted.  Too many times today I felt like a greased pig on ice when trying to get from my car up to the front door of homes I was showing.  I was a bit freake … continue reading

Out of an Estate

Out of an Estate
After being side-tracked with an extra project of research last week, I've found myself playing catch-up with my regular office duties to where perhaps after tomorrow, I'll have everything back to the way it's supposed to be, but about a week later t … continue reading
