A Giant Flag

A Giant Flag
I guess when we asked Mother Nature to smile down upon us with rain, she must've been feeling pretty generous at the time. Yes, I'm glad we're getting the rain, but will certainly be happy when the sun re-appears from behind these days of cloud cover.Several hours were spent this morning in preparation of several files that are now ready for ti … continue reading

Hyperbolic Overloads

Hyperbolic Overloads
As much as I was expecting the sun to be shining today, it didn't start showing its face until around mid-afternoon, and when reading we weren't supposed to get rain, that forecast was also wrong, because it was misting rain on and off all morning.Since I had some free time early this morning, I changed my clothes and did some more yard clean-u … continue reading

Their Comeuppance

Their Comeuppance
Another gray day arrived and went, but it appears higher temps and sunshine are in the offing tomorrow. When looking at the rest of our week's forecast, we'll be back on a warming trend, and likely far enough into the growing season where people can start planting their tomatoes and peppers outdoors without being fearful of overnight frosts.My … continue reading

The More Healthy

The More Healthy
It was quite the gloomy and wet day from the time I arrived at my office, and continued that way until I called it quits on this roller-coaster Monday. Pretty much all I did was field calls from customers and other Realtors wanting to either show a listing of mine, or requesting additional information on them. There's one newbie, whom I'd sternly i … continue reading

I’d Rather be Paying

I’d Rather be Paying
I'm sure most of you were awakened in the early hours by the heavy rain coming down, and when I looked out, I said to myself, "I hope this isn't going to continue too long, or we're going to have some rivers running down our streets." As I was heading Downtown early this morning, I noticed some of the creeks were high and running fast with water. I … continue reading

There Will be a Second Wave

There Will be a Second Wave
I had an interesting "multi-hat" day to where early this morning, I busied myself with some much needed chores, which I worked at up until about a half hour before my open house was to begin. Within that half hour, I managed to get back to my office, change my clothes, stop at a convenience store for some apple juice, and make it to that unit's doo … continue reading

Paying in Cash

Paying in Cash
It certainly turned out to be a glorious Spring day with our warming sun, but unfortunately, the wind gusts were a bit annoying in our Downtown which contains those nasty wind tunnels between buildings. I got a good taste of it when trying to wash the windshield of my car while the wind was barreling down from the north. I guess we all have to remi … continue reading

Too Large and Too Few

Too Large and Too Few
It's certainly feeling a lot more like Spring now that the temps have risen to a range of comfort. I'm not sure how much rain we received, but whatever amount we did get, was certainly better than nothing. It's too bad the cloud cover didn't clear off until mid-afternoon because I had photos to take of a home this morning, and even though they turn … continue reading

Good Faith Gesture

Good Faith Gesture
Some have recently said that we are now entering an age where most will come to the realization that it's really not all about them, and start coming to terms with the idea that if we don't band together as communities which work toward the betterment of all, then we will all be doomed. I was reminded of that again today when visiting with a kind e … continue reading

A Family’s Essence

A Family’s Essence
Alas it's warming up again, and none too soon, because these cold nights and chilly mornings are quickly growing old. Much to my surprise, I just happened to see an article in the online news regarding the long-term forecast for our summer, and not surprised when reading that most of our continental United States, is to experience above average tem … continue reading

Challenging Dogma

Challenging Dogma
It looks like we're going to be back to normal temperatures for May in the next few days, and glad for it, because having to keep a furnace running during the day at this time of year seems a bit abnormal. At least the sun was shining which when out in it, the cold didn't seem as biting.It was a busy Monday, and luckily I managed to get all my … continue reading

Upon my Plate

Upon my Plate
I was up, at it, and off to my office a little earlier this morning due to an 8:00 am appointment I had with a seller, and just soon enough to get my Sunday Morning Prayer time taken care of without having to rush it. As each day passes, I'm growing all the more comfortable with the return of my spiritual regimen which is something I'd done for a c … continue reading
