Off with a Snicker

Off with a Snicker
When finding the temps in the single digit realm this morning, there was no wasting of time being outdoors for any length. I had a little extra shoveling to do because of last night's wind, and you can be sure I wasted no effort getting it moved.Several years ago, I purchased ear muffs that've been a Godsend whenever having to be out in such we … continue reading

Scope of Understanding

Scope of Understanding
The weather forecasters had us believing there was a 40% chance of rain today, and what did we get? Snow, cold, and wind which made it all the more challenging when trying to keep appointments, and in the end, both were cancelled by a buyer, and potential seller. Oh well, at least we got a good taste of it which will make us better prepared for tom … continue reading

Since I had a mid-morning appointment, I thought it best to go to an early morning church service instead of waiting until later. I walked in just as they were playing the entrance hymn, and with everyone standing, I didn't make much of a scene when searching for a free pew.After it was over and while walking out, I began wondering if I'm growi … continue reading

One Felled Swoop

When seeing the weather wasn't so terribly cold and most of the snow having melted, I thought it best to borrow a pickup truck and make a trip out to our landfill. Knowing how Saturday morning can be busy out there, I made sure to arrive just after they opened, and wouldn't you know it, there was already a line waiting at the scale.If you ever … continue reading

The Stink of Laziness

As I was heading to the office this morning, I noticed the temperature on the marquis at First Citizens Bank, and not a bit happy to see it in the low 20's, and of course we also had to deal with that noticeably cold wind coming out of the north, but it's winter, and what else are we to expect?I finally received back in an email today, a radica … continue reading

It certainly was a glorious day with the temps climbing far above freezing and the sun continuing to hang with us, along with being a welcome relief as we're approaching our winter solstice. I just mentioned something today to a dear one about how much I appreciate getting past the 21st of December when knowing the nights will start growing shorter … continue reading

A Commanding Presence

Had the wind not been blowing today, I believe it would've been another beautiful sunny day, and having to be out of the office on appointments, I had to keep myself bundled against that biting wind.Back when I was much younger and doing my evening jogs, if there were even the slightest cold breezes, I'd have to keep my mouth covered or I'd dev … continue reading

A Trying Tuesday

A Trying Tuesday
Even though it was well below freezing this morning, at least we had the sun to get the temps back up above freezing around mid-day, but of course after it went down, the chills started all over again.If ever there were an "off" day for me, today was a classic. It seemed everything I did and everywhere I went, there were issues. The first most … continue reading

The Craziness Continues

The Craziness Continues
I guess Mother Nature must've read my comments last night regarding the weather when seeing the sun starting to rise this morning. Unfortunately, it was still exceptionally cold and windy, but I still appreciated seeing it shining the entire day. Hooray for our first sunny December day!There were several in-and-out appointments early this morni … continue reading

A Gracious Welcome

A Gracious Welcome
There wasn't much going this morning other than having received a text before 8:00 am from another agent wanting to show one of my listing later this morning. Every time I get texts either very late in the evening or early the next morning from another Realtor wanting to show an occupied listing, I bristle a bit because I oft times think they'd eit … continue reading
