The More I Like

The More I Like
It was almost hot outside when seeing it reaching above 75 degrees this afternoon, and since most of us haven't yet grown accustomed to these rapidly rising temperatures, it felt a whole lot warmer than it really was.My first order of business was getting prepared for a closing that's coming up the first of next week.  I've got pretty much eve … continue reading

Some of the rooftops and car windows were frosted again this morning which made me all the happier I decided to dress warmly.  In spite of the temperature, I happened to notice a number of people out and about with shorts on which gave me the chills just looking at them.  It would have to get a whole lot warmer than it did today to get me even th … continue reading

Space We Deserve
As expected, it was a bit slow in real estate today with it being the Monday after Easter, and that sudden turn from yesterday's beautiful weather to a misty cold rain wasn't helping matters.  Oh well, we have to remember it's still early enough in the season to have days like this.I'm going to be working all the more diligently at getting my … continue reading

Easter Rainbow

Easter Rainbow
I'm hoping you've all had a memorable Easter with family and friends.  The weather was cooperative which should've made it safe for extended travel, and I'd say at least a third of the people I know were doing just that.Living in an age where children usually go where the better jobs are, we find parents traveling to cities like Des Moines, Mi … continue reading

We certainly had a marked temperature spike today when finding it in the upper 70's.  Since I dressed warmly this morning, there were a few times I was feeling more than a bit uncomfortable.  Believe me, I'm not complaining in the least bit, because as far I'm concerned, it can stay this way until Christmas.  After listening to the many comments … continue reading

Gentle Rising

Gentle Rising
In spite of there being frost in the lowlands this morning, I was relieved to find it having risen above 65 degrees this afternoon.  Those 60+ degree temperatures sure make a difference with how many pedestrians there are out walking in the Downtown.  I'm not sure if it was a combination of Good Friday along with being sunny and warm, because the … continue reading

Stooped so Low

Stooped so Low
I'm discovering that these are the days in both Spring and Fall which are a crap shoot when it comes to deciding how light or heavy to dress when leaving for work.  For whatever reason, I thought it was going to be a warm one, but in reality, it didn't even come close to being pleasant.   Even though I knew it was windy, I didn't realize it was … continue reading

We did get that predicted rain after all, but I wish it hadn't come down in sheets.  At one point this afternoon, when glancing out the window, I could barely see across the street from my office due to how heavy it was coming down.I actually noticed daffodils blooming along the side of a home yesterday which always bring a smile to my face.  … continue reading

Already Made Up

Alas it was well above freezing when leaving home this morning which gave me hope it was going to be much warmer, and sure enough, it ended up being above 60 degrees.   We're now seeing how quickly the grass is beginning to grow to where I'm sure we'll be doing some mowing in a couple of weeks.   I've already noticed a number of people out raki … continue reading

With it being somewhat of a quiet Monday morning, it soon turned into a busy one after the afternoon arrived.  Once again, if it were not so windy, it would've been an exceptionally pleasant day.The closing of one of my sales went very well and glad for it because both the buyer and sellers have been more wonderful to work with.  If I had a d … continue reading
