Illusion of Democracy

Illusion of Democracy
The hoar frost this morning was quite beautiful to where I was compelled to take the above photo of a clump of trees I happened upon while on my way up to Worth County this afternoon.I was out at my sidewalks with a vengeance this morning just to make sure all the light snow and sand was cleared off.  One of my neighbors down the block must've … continue reading

My first little duty today was to drive over to St. Paul Lutheran and play their organ and piano for their 8:30 morning Service.  I normally try to get there 45 minutes early just to make sure I have the music organized they want played along with running thru them a few times.  While waiting in my car and looking at the clock, it was getting all … continue reading

Looking to Pills

Looking to Pills
It was pretty much a normal Saturday in real estate with the phone calls, the showings, and my public open house.  I did change my clothes and go work for several hours at an absolutely filthy job I wasn't able to get finished this past weekend.  Thank goodness I did manage to get the dirtiest part of it done, so when time permits tomorrow, I'll … continue reading

Oh how much happier I'll be when the 21st of this month comes and goes and the sun once again begins its march back north.  It grows annoying after a while when finding myself both going and returning home from work in the dark.  For sure I'll be glad when daylight savings time returns the 10th of March.  In the meantime, I guess we've all got t … continue reading

Steam Tunnels

Steam Tunnels
As suspected, our dropping temps are creating all the more reasons not to be outdoors any more than necessary.  A bank teller made me laugh today when their in the drive-thru.  He asked how I was, and I said, "Cold! But at least I started wearing my long underwear, but after today, I'm thinking about getting another pair to slip over my existing … continue reading

Oh how wonderful it was to have the sun out all day today!  It actually warmed up enough to melt some of the snow off the sidewalks and streets.  Of course with the cloud cover lifted, we'll be having some colder nights along with early mornings and late afternoons.  I'm in full agreement of global warming, but it sure hasn't been felt these pas … continue reading

To Such Limits

To Such Limits
Most of my morning was spent performing my normal first of the month accounting tasks as well as paying the monthly bills that seem to magically appear every 30 days at my office.  When writing out checks, I once in a while think of the times several in the general public have made a few unkind remarks about how Realtors makes such big bucks with … continue reading

It sounds like we're going to have some cold days and nights ahead of us this week which I'm sure isn't going to make any of us the least bit happy.  Oh well, we're into December and I guess these extended days of cold are to be expected.  I'm only hoping we will have some thawing days during this season because there's going to be a great deal o … continue reading

Core Responsibilities

Core Responsibilities
Thank goodness we didn't get as much snow as was forecasted which made shoveling all that much easier today.  In spite of it not being the lighter stuff, at least it was manageable.Since the roads weren't the best, I decided to take in a local church Service.  I was a few minutes late, but didn't have to worry about finding a seat because of … continue reading

No License to Treat

No License to Treat
Expecting to see snow on the ground this morning, I was delighted to find none, along with the sleet/rain mixture not beginning until much later.  Now that evening has fallen, the snow has begun, and I'm hoping we'll not get as much as was expected because it's going to be the heavy stuff.I did make sure to get the slush shoveled off the front … continue reading
