Pecking for Food

Pecking for Food
This was the ugliest of Spring days with the rain being so cold which never seemed to stop for good.  It would rain heavy for a while, let up, stop for a bit, and then start all over again.  I'm not sure how much we received, but it was more than enough to fill up our dry waterways.Perhaps the powers that be are smiling down on my office all … continue reading

A Perfect Place to Begin

A Perfect Place to Begin
I was glad to find it a good day for being out and about since the wind wasn't blowing, which made it all the more delightful to be longer out on my morning errands.  Of course when I arrived back at my office, there were a number of phone calls needing to be returned.As I mentioned last night, I'll never for the life of me understand how and … continue reading

Illusions of Suffering
With it once again being the first week of the month, I was back at my office accounting, bill paying, and collections. For the strangest reason, I felt as though it was only a couple of weeks ago when I'd finished up the first of April.  Time sure flies when we have our nose to the grindstone rough.That north wind was very biting this morning … continue reading

Thank goodness it didn't rain today because I had my Sunday set aside to get some much needed yard work done.  There's no question I'll be having a few aches and pains in the morning from nearly six hours of the raking, mowing, and pulling weeds.A first mowing always seems to take longer because of how certain sections of grass tend to grow fa … continue reading

For whatever reason, the hours of my morning happened to fly by with all the little chores I had to attend to before my public open house started.  Thank goodness  my schedule wasn't hard and fast because one of my old clients called and asked if I would have time to help him with my pair of hands.  Since I wasn't in the middle of something, I t … continue reading

It certainly turned out to be a beautiful day after all.  People have been telling me that we have a chance of rain these next several days, and I do hope whomever they heard it from, is completely wrong because this is the weekend we Realtors have our annual "Open House Weekend".  I'm sure you've been noticing all the more open house signs aroun … continue reading

Since I had earlier than normal appointments today, I figured it best to get to the office all the sooner so that I wouldn't be in a rush getting ready for them.  I actually had to turn the furnace up just to get the overnight chill off, and you can be sure I dressed all the warmer today.After those appointments were taken care of, I spent the … continue reading

For it being May 1st, I couldn't believe how cold it was outdoors this morning.  The rain we received yesterday made the air all the more damp to where I wished I'd dressed warmer. Let's hope it's not going to be raining this weekend because we've got some serious mowing to do.My agent Brandon Neve, listed a home yesterday that should sell rel … continue reading

Determined to Teach
This misty cold rain we were getting today was exceptionally annoying considering I had to be out in it more than I wanted to be, but as we all know, we can't have near perfect weather all the time.  I do hope this coming month of May will be more pleasant than it was last year because I felt as though we'd been cheated out of a normal summer.… continue reading

How Kin I

How Kin I
My first duty of the day was to do a final walk-thru on a home that would be closing this morning.  Everything looked good, so I grabbed the keys, pulled my sign, and headed to the office.  As I was driving off and glancing back, I said to myself, "That home is going to work for its new buyers for many years to come."  The people that purchased … continue reading

With having so much on today's plate, I decided to attend an early church service here in the City.  In spite of leaving soon enough so to place my arrow signs for my open house, I was still about two minutes late for their Services.  So much for my judge of time and distance.The minister gave a very good sermon this morning based on the "dou … continue reading

As expected, first we got the rain, and then the snow started.  It wasn't so bad here in the City, but when driving up to the Forest City area this morning, I was all the more thankful I have a four wheel drive vehicle.  What makes me nervous when driving on those slushy blacktops, is it being harder keep the wheels from being pulled into it.… continue reading
