“Big Blue” taking Flight

“Big Blue” taking Flight
I'm beginning to wonder if all of that smoke that's being generated from those forest fires in Siberia is creating this strange haze in our atmosphere.  We all know that the jet stream crosses over Russia, so just maybe we're getting smoked by Siberia.My early morning final walk-thru went well with the exception of the overhead garage doors ha … continue reading

Another beautiful day in North Iowa happened again, and I'm looking for all the many more before the leaves start turning.  It saddens me a bit when knowing we're heading into August which is likely going to be our last month of real summer.  The weeks have flown by which is usually what happens when we want to hold them fast.When I arrived a … continue reading

Out of the Woods

Out of the Woods
This morning was again a near perfect one due to the light rain we had last night and then the arrival of the cooling north wind.  When we have days like this, I'm sure all the many would like to flash-freeze them in time and then re-activate them whenever our days are cold and gray.One of my favorite Downtown people stopped by to tell me abou … continue reading

My early morning was spent working on a sale file that is now ready for title work to be done so we can get it closed.  I was happy to find I had all the information I needed, which meant I didn't have to call the selling agent for more details.  As I've said before, the more people involved in a sale, the more easily it is for someone to drop th … continue reading

Since I'll be working real estate tomorrow, I figured I'd take some time off to get some yard work done, along with little chores that've been hanging all week.  Of course it did have to get warmer outdoors than I would've liked, but I trudged thru it, and came out sweating like a butcher.With it being so warm, I did have to stop and take some … continue reading

It was a most delightful morning again with the hazy sun and gentle breezes.  I'm beginning to wonder if all those forest fires that are out of control in Siberia are sending this strange sort of upper atmosphere haze that I've been noticing these past several days.  When you really look, it does look brownish.  From what I read on BBC News this … continue reading

With having an early morning appointment out of town, I made sure to get to the office all the earlier so I could be on the road before most were even thinking about heading to work.  It was an interesting drive, and since I've not been on I-35 during a weekday morning, I noticed how tastes have changed with vehicles, and especially the out-of- St … continue reading

I'd say it was definitely a busy "hump day" from the time I arrived at the office, and thank goodness the weather was pleasant because I was out more than I was in.When walking out this morning, I couldn't help noticing the line of seniors seated at the benches outside The Manor and chit-chatting amongst themselves.  There must've been a line … continue reading

Yet another beautiful day happened in North Iowa, and I can't imagine there being anyone believing it could've been better.  There was a bit of a chill in the air this morning, but that quickly dispersed once the sun rose higher.  A cool morning is the best time for our residents to take their much needed power walks.I had several early morni … continue reading

Oh how wonderful the coolness of the morning was which started off my Monday with a delight.  When noticing some of the people in their cars as they were driving to work, one would swear they were just as happy as I was.I had to make sure I was at my office soon enough because I had an early morning appointment to write an offer on a home they … continue reading
