An Enduring Respect

An Enduring Respect
It was another back to the grindstone early today with more little chores to be done before the phones started ringing. It was definitely chilly out again this morning but at least it didn't get frosting-cold overnight. The time is drawing closer for … continue reading

His Sentimental Overlays

His Sentimental Overlays
These recent winds have been wrecking havoc on our trees again, as just today, I noticed one Pine tree having been topped-off, and another fruit tree snapped in two. I just don't get it with these winds, and yes, we've always been a windy city, but n … continue reading

We didn't get a frost last night which was a good thing, and ended up being pretty nice day out once our sun rose higher, but then when it became overcast, the chill returned. It was actually misting a little on my windshield as I was driving home. L … continue reading

It was a beautiful day, but the wind certainly kept us bundled against it while outdoors. I heard we may be getting frosted overnight, and if we do, it'll be in our lowlands. In spite of my seedlings growing like weeds, I'll not be planting them unti … continue reading

My wishes were at least partially fulfilled when seeing this light rain continuing-on towards noontime. Now if we had a good three full days and nights of it, we'd all have an example of what our old farmers considered "a million dollar rain", as suc … continue reading

Having read on the weather forecast several days ago, it was to be far cooler today than yesterday, and by the time early afternoon arrived, it was 83 degrees and rising. At least the rain we were supposed to get today, was pushed forward to this eve … continue reading

With our weather suddenly turning warm, I got out earlier than normal again, just so I could get some more of my personal chores done before putting on my Realtor hat. With the winds we had over this past winter, I created several large piles of stic … continue reading

To my dis-belief, I've been hearing we're going to have some mid to upper 80's temps on Saturday, which is pretty unusual for this time of year. Yes, I was hoping for higher, but not that high. You can bet our Spring flowers will be wilting in that h … continue reading

Energy-letting
At last our temps are back on the rise, and happy for it, as I really don't enjoy being dressed in a fashion befitting a colder clime, and especially when it's only being a few days from the first of May. Once it does warm up for good, you can bet I' … continue reading

With much to get done early this morning, I made sure to head out to office a little earlier so I could get what I needed done before the phones started ringing, and glad I did because a client of mine called and asked if I'd borrow my arms and legs … continue reading
