He Who Dares Not
I have to keep reminding myself that we're on the down-hill slide of November with my continued wishing for pleasant days, and thus far, we've been pretty lucky in not having a major snowstorm. In spite of it being a biting cold morning, it really wa … continue reading

A New Doctor

A New Doctor
We couldn't have had a more beautiful morning with the near-calm wind and bright sun, and since it was Sunday, I made sure to get to office early enough so not to be disturbed in my quiet corner while conducting my personal contemplative prayer sessi … continue reading

Grease-cutting Soap
We finally had a near perfectly calm day today, and what a relief it was. I was beginning to think Mother Nature had some sort of invisible fan programmed to have the wind start blowing as soon as sunrise happened, but you can bet I was enjoying ever … continue reading

Just That Un-caring

Just That Un-caring
Once again, the wind was blowing strong today, and since our temps didn't get high enough, it was darned cold whenever I was out in it. Wouldn't it be nice to have at least a few calm days this month? I do hope it's not a harbinger of a cold and wind … continue reading

This Buying Fever

This Buying Fever
The wind wasn't as bad today as yesterday's, but still at it, which makes me wonder if that nickname given our City back in 1950's titled, "The windy city of the North" being far closer to the truth. Oh well, at least our temps climbed high enough ag … continue reading

Two More Imps
These exceptionally windy days have been enough to make a person go batty because it seems each year we've experienced all the more wind, and by the looks of all the branches and even entire old-growth trees coming down, I'd say even they're not … continue reading

A Field of Snow

A Field of Snow
The summation of my entire day could be condensed into one statement, and that being, "The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry." Oh how some of those old quotes do speak generational truths.My Sunday morning started off as a normal one, … continue reading

Adorn Yourself

Adorn Yourself
I dare say it couldn't have been a more gloomy day here in North Iowa with the heavy cloud cover and misty-cold rain. The numerous times I was out in it, I was reminded how similar it what was to the costal cities in Northern Europe and the British I … continue reading

A Gracious Granny

A Gracious Granny
For it being Friday the 13th, this one kept me busy enough to where I'd say it ended up a lucky one, as our office had two closings, three sales, and a lead on a much-needed listing because our inventory is definitely shrinking. It looks like I'm … continue reading

A Time Capsule

A Time Capsule
It was an early up and out this morning with the number of duties I had awaiting me at office which I needed to get completed before the phones started ringing. Seeing how heavy the frost was when I went to my car, I was certain it was colder tha … continue reading
