The Art of Giving

The Art of Giving
The first order of business was to get myself over to St. Paul Lutheran Church and practice a little bit before their 8:30 am Service.  I stopped at the office to visit with the Pastor for a few minutes before heading up to the gallery.  We somehow ended up talking about gratitude and giving.I shared with him a conversation I had recently wit … continue reading

The Rise of Insouciance

The Rise of Insouciance
The wind was almost at a gale force today to where I had to grab my spare winter coat at the office before I headed out to place my tent open house signs because it ended up being one of those mornings where the wind came up with the sun.  While driving out to 115 S. Connecticut, I once again forgot that East State St. is closed in that first bloc … continue reading

One Way or Another

One Way or Another
Today was a barn-burner with meetings and home showing appointments, and thank goodness I managed to make it to each one of them on time.  There happened to be one home that was added to the mix which would've made me late for another, so I called the person I was to meet and asked if we could make it a half hour later.  Thank goodness he was und … continue reading

Heavenly Wonder

Heavenly Wonder
My day at the office started earlier than normal due to my needing to get some things done before the phones started ringing, and one of them being my little job out back of my office where there was far too much paper and plastic I wanted to get picked up that had blown in from heaven knows where.  I was out there longer than I'd planned due to f … continue reading

Work on a Brat

Work on a Brat
If the wind hadn't been blowing with such a force, I'd say it would've been a delightful day, but unfortunately every time I ventured out, the wind would attempt to blow me in a different direction.  It was so bad that instead of walking to several of nearby appointments, I jumped in my car and drove.Thank goodness the overnights I was waiting … continue reading

The Liberty to Darken

The Liberty to Darken
Unfortunately, my day started out a bit of a disappointment after being called by the listing agent of a home I wrote an offer on yesterday and telling me another offer came in on it after I submitted mine.  She was good enough to ask that I get in touch with my buyer and request, "highest and best".  After hanging up, I text the buyer to say the … continue reading

For the Duration

For the Duration
I sure wish the sun would come out again.  These continued days without it seems to make people all the less optimistic.  But of course we all have to have the gray days in order to appreciate the sunny ones.There wasn't much happening at the office other than answering the phone and sending emails.  I did receive a call on one of my listing … continue reading

Toy Alphabet

Toy Alphabet
Since I didn't go to a religious service yesterday, I thought it my duty to attend one this morning, and having awakened earlier, I figured I'd go to an early one somewhere, so I readied myself and off I went.  It was bit gray and gloomy out while driving Downtown, and couldn't help noticing how few drivers there were.When I pulled into the ch … continue reading

Pudge and Podge

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 morning on the corners near 725 N. Washington.I actually managed to get only two things accomplished … 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.Considering the fact that if we do get any more snow, it'll be short-lived, and with that in mi … continue reading
