Happy Halloween of 2019!

Happy Halloween of 2019!
Alas we've come to the last day of October, and there's no question these past weeks haven't been in the average temperature ranges for this time of year. Let's all hope these days aren't harbingers of what we'll have in store for us these coming months. It actually grew colder outdoors as the day wore on compared to what it was like early this mor … continue reading

In spite of getting to my office about an hour earlier his morning, it seemed as though I was chasing a tail-wind in attempts to keep up with all the calls, and "immediate" needs of others.  I was beginning to think it was a full moon by the way in which the temperaments of people were spiking, and thank goodness I wasn't pulled into such states o … continue reading

The Outback of Iowa

The Outback of Iowa
It seemed a much longer day when having to head out of town on an early morning appointment and then realizing I'd forgotten how many people commute to Mason City not long after I started heading north on Hwy 65. I've considered Worth County pretty much of a bedroom county because of there not being any large employers to speak of up there. With th … continue reading

On a Burn

On a Burn
I'm beginning to wonder if this chilly weather is going to continue on into November, and then grow colder without there being a warming reprieve. For several days I'd forgotten to wear my winter coat, but after today, I doubt it'll be left behind considering how the sun no longer seems able to warm our days up.It was a more quiet Monday than n … continue reading

Spinning their Yarns

Spinning their Yarns
I was exceptionally disappointed when finding the sun having disappeared behind the clouds this morning. If we're going to have gray days, then they should be contained within the workweek while being banned from weekends. I was so much hoping it was going to be another beautiful day for Prairie Place on 1st open house and then my scheduled showing … continue reading

Kick it over to Karma

Kick it over to Karma
Once it got above freezing, I'd say we had another beautiful day in North Iowa with sunshine and no wind. I've come to the conclusion that if we could find a way to stop the wind from blowing all winter, even I would start enjoying it. In a futuristic thought, I'd say our world governments should stop trying to build bigger and better bombs, and wo … continue reading

It certainly dropped below freezing last night because while driving to work, I noticed frost on the windshields of cars and on roofs of homes I passed, and once the sun came up, there were leaves magically falling to earth. In some areas, it looked at times like a light brown snow. In just a day's time, one particular maple tree I drive past on a … continue reading

In spite of it being on the cold side, it gave me a wonderful feeling when seeing the sun finally coming out from behind the clouds. I kiddingly said to someone on the phone this morning, "I think I'm going to have to grab my sunglasses before I go outside because of how my eyes have grown so used to all gray days we've been having." It sounds like … continue reading

Fake It to Make It

Fake It to Make It
It was a rather unremarkable day in just about every direction I looked at it, beginning with the this dark day accompanied by the cold drizzly rain that was working at turning into snow. I sure wouldn't like to see a repeat of that Halloween ice storm we had a number of years ago which cut the power to a section of our City for days. It was quite … continue reading

Pink Rubber Ducky

Pink Rubber Ducky
It was yet another “follow the bouncing ball” day again where there was always something in need of immediate attention. I always smile to myself whenever someone in the general public makes some sort of sassy remark about how Realtors just sit around waiting for a buyer or seller to come walking thru their office doors. Oh how not so.Sever … continue reading
