My Board in the Back

My Board in the Back
It appeared Mother Nature was not about to let us get away from this last day of January without dropping at least a measurable amount of snow. Oh well, it's not yet midnight, bit I see it's starting to fall again. I do hope it's short-lived because I would really like to have a snow-less open house tomorrow over at 1 Briarstone Court. I'm on a bur … continue reading

A Weaker Great Britain

A Weaker Great Britain
Just one more day, and we'll all be able to yell, "Hooray!" when knowing we'll not be seeing the likes of the month of January for another eleven months. I have to admit it's not been as bad as most, along with being all the happier we didn't have a repeat of last January's weather.With most of my day free to play finish-up and catch-up on duti … continue reading

A Fence of Inevitability

A Fence of Inevitability
I arrived at my office a little earlier than normally because I wanted to have all the more time to work on my yearly tax accounting. I've been on a bit of a burn this year to have my portion completed before the end of this month, and it looks like I'm going to make my self-imposed deadline.As with real estate files, I've found it best to do a … continue reading

Always Passing Around

Always Passing Around
Just three more days and counting before we're out of this agonizingly long month of January. We should all be very grateful we're not experiencing the January of last year because it was a beast. While working on my office expenses of last year, the exceptionally high gas and electric bill I had that month was one more confirmation.When speaki … continue reading

Acquired Tastes Only

Acquired Tastes Only
It was a welcoming Monday when finding it not so terribly cold as I was driving all the earlier to the office this morning due to some little errands needing to be run before my opening hour arrived.One of my clients called and asked that I post one of his rentals for lease since it's now vacant, cleaned up, and ready to show. Shortly thereafte … continue reading

Poor Record Keeping

Poor Record Keeping
Our morning wasn't very remarkable due to the gray skies and below freezing temps, so and after visiting with several well knowns today, I changed my clothes and went back to working at a personal project. I was only at it for about two hours because of how chilly it was in that area. If it were perhaps ten degrees warmer, I would've stayed there l … continue reading

Lotus-Eaters

Lotus-Eaters
When thinking I wasn't going to have to shovel today, I was wrong because we had more accumulation in the night than I'd expected. For sure it wasn't as daunting a task with the temps hovering around the upper 20's.Between the shoveling and meeting with new tenants over at their new home for a final walk-thru, then meeting them at my office for … continue reading

Shame and Pain

Shame and Pain
The first order of my day, was to get my rear parking lot cleared of all the snow that was so rudely pushed onto it by inconsiderate others. Oh well, it's now back to where it's useable. Even when I was young and scooping snow for a number of the elderly people I worked for, I can't remember even once, shoveling snow onto someone else's property be … continue reading

Wielding an Axe

Wielding an Axe
Yes, it was an interesting early morning with the clearing away of snow, but all the more grateful we didn't get as much as predicted, because I was expecting a whole lot more when looking outdoors as I was preparing to head off to work.After my shoveling was finished, I drove out and placed open house signs at the two properties I'm having ope … continue reading

Highway Commercial

Highway Commercial
With only nine days remaining in the month of January, it looks like Mother Nature is going to make sure we're fully enveloped in snow before we're able to lay down our welcome mats for February. I shoveled outside my office three times today, and before leaving, it looked like it needed it again, but that'll be my first chore of the morning.Ju … continue reading
