This Weekend of All Hallows’ Eve

This Weekend of All Hallows’ Eve
It was an even earlier up and out of the house this morning due to my having awakened a wee bit earlier, so I figured it best to get to office and get busy with my contemplative prayer session before I had to skedaddle over to St. Paul Lutheran to play for this morning's Service. Having arrived earlier, I was able to spend more time in my quiet … continue reading

It’s Time we Start eating Weeds

It’s Time we Start eating Weeds
After our early-morning frost melted off and the temps started rising, it actually turned out to be a beautiful day, but unfortunately as our days grow shorter, the sunshine doesn't hang around as long. Let's hope tomorrow will be a repeat of today, just so all of our outdoorsy residents can get out and enjoy these days while they last. As much … continue reading

Education isn’t a mere Operation

Education isn’t a mere Operation
As much as I would've enjoyed having a cloudless day and no wind, neither occurrence took place, but hopefully the wind will go down with the sun and offer up a more pleasant day tomorrow. I didn't bother to look when the "official" night our little munchkins are going to be out begging for treats which is hopefully tomorrow night instead of the of … continue reading

A Pair of Tight Panty Hose

A Pair of Tight Panty Hose
Another miserably dark, wet and cold day happened again, and of course I had to be out in it more than I would've liked, but as most Realtors know, whether rain or shine, we've got to keep our business pipelines flowing. Regrettably, I'll be picking my green San Marzano tomatoes before Monday morning's frost arrives, and get them cleaned and canned … continue reading

Harboring some Pretty Dark Thoughts

Harboring some Pretty Dark Thoughts
It's becoming more apparent that we're on a down-hill slide into the cold months of North Iowa, and in spite most who work indoors all day remain indifferent over the changing of seasons, I personally dislike them because I know I'll be out in it just about as much as I am during the pleasant ones. Of course it's nice to watch from an office window … continue reading

It was Too Sweet and Doughy

It was Too Sweet and Doughy
It turned out to be quite the pleasant day in North Iowa, and with the lowered rays of our sun, I found our landscapes to be quite stunning, and especially while driving out of town to an appointment and seeing all the many farmers harvesting their corn. Now that we're approaching the 31st, I couldn't help remembering the Halloween over twenty year … continue reading

1910 S. Georgia is Back on the Market

1910 S. Georgia is Back on the Market
I'm still wondering how we managed to get to the 25th of October so quickly. Perhaps it's due to everyone running around trying to get everything they want done outdoors before the bitter cold arrives. I can certainly say it's been an interesting month thus far, but at least our weather's been favorable. It was quite the full morning with appoin … continue reading

Resonate into the Souls of those in the Light

Resonate into the Souls of those in the Light
It's been quite the drizzly day, and when the weather stated we'd be getting rain this afternoon, I figured it was going to be an endless drizzle, and that's exactly what it's turned out to be. I don't think we're going to be seeing as much Fall coloring with our maple trees this year, and likely due to the way in which this weather's been these re … continue reading

The Next Appraisal for Free

The Next Appraisal for Free
So here we are at the 23rd of October where we can freely and officially say we had our first frost early this morning. I covered what needed to be protected, so we'll see these coming days if they managed to make it thru the night. I don't think it got as cold as it was supposed to, because my car thermometer said it was 31 degrees while driving t … continue reading

Turned many Daunting Tasks into Cake Walks

Turned many Daunting Tasks into Cake Walks
What was supposed to be a "frosting" this morning, didn't happen, unless it was in the very low areas of North Iowa. As I was driving to work early this morning, the outside temperature read 34 degrees all the way into our downtown. I'm afraid tonight will be a different story because everyone's been saying it's supposed to get down to 28 degrees, … continue reading
