In spite of the temperature not being all that cold, it was pretty darned chilly outdoors today, and we can blame the wind for making it feel all the colder.  Thank goodness I dressed all the warmer before leaving home because I was out in it more than I would've liked.Around mid-morning I received a text from a near life-long friend telling m … continue reading

Just forget It!

Just forget It!
Thank goodness it wasn't the cold day predicted by our weather forecasters.  As I was leaving early this morning, I noticed it was already in the 20's and rising.  Finding myself running a bit late for my playing gig, I quickly grabbed my music and headed for the church.  For some reason, the person who normally unlocks the church doors at a pre … continue reading

Ouch!  The weather sure turned cold all of a sudden.  If it wasn't for the wind, it would've been more tolerable, but those gusts coming from the north were enough to send anyone running for cover.  At least we only had a dusting of snow this morning and I hope tonight's snowfall isn't going to be measurable enough to complain about.While wa … continue reading

Having been awakened numerous times in the night by the sound of the rain, it came as no surprise to see how much we did get.  When driving past creeks and later the Winnebago River, it was a bit scary seeing the water nearing the tops of their banks.  Thinking it had finally quit, about an hour later it started back up again.One of the utili … continue reading

Christmas Eve of 2018
In spite of most workers being off today,  I figured it best to go to the office for at least the morning just in case there were calls, and thank goodness I did, because I had drop-ins and phone calls that I would've missed had I not been there.Although it was below freezing all day, I'm still thankful the sun was out most of the time which m … continue reading

Your Hidden Sanctuary

Your Hidden Sanctuary
Today was a bit quirky for me from the get go due to my not having paid pre-Christmas visits to some near and dear ones which I should have done days ago, but at least I got my act together, made some phone calls, and off I drove.My first stop was at a home of a familiar whom I've known for many years.  I was glad to find her in good spirits a … continue reading

It was a bit disappointing to find it overcast along with spitting mist this morning which pretty much set the stage for the rest of the day.  So much for my wishing for blue skies and warm temps the remainder of this year.I went out to do a final walk-thru on a property that was closing later this morning on my diamond in the rough listing wh … continue reading
