Equally Timeless

Goodness gracious, it was quite a change in weather today to where it was so cold, I was seeing people walking around with down-filled coats on, and for sure, those icy gusts of wind we were getting, was enough to send us all running to grab our windbreakers.Thank goodness I didn't have a morning filled with appointments because I had to get ba … continue reading

112 N. Crescent Drive

112 N. Crescent Drive
After my early morning appointment left, I busied myself with a file that's going to be closing in several weeks, which created a necessity for me to drive to Hampton, and wouldn't you know it, I drove all the way down, and then back up in rain. I was expecting light rain today, but not the amount we ended up getting. On a positive note, it couldn' … continue reading

As much wishful thinking there was in regards to our days remaining sunny, the cloud cover had to arrive again, and it looks like it'll be sticking around for a while.The early hours of my morning were spent with appointments that were scheduled, and since both of them took longer than expected, there wasn't much of a break before I had to go b … continue reading

I'm sure there were many squealing over the rain we were getting today, and especially the festival goers and vendors over at Clear Lake. There's no doubt many of those in attendance were donning rainwear and carrying umbrellas up and down their downtown.Thank goodness my public open house wasn't until 1:00 pm, because those morning open houses … continue reading

Alas the sun broke out of our extended cloud cover, but with it came the north wind which really cooled things down to the point where I think there were some who had their furnaces turned on. I fear we're going to get our first frost in the lowlands because they're expecting a low in our area of 37 degrees overnight. Being a bit more familiar with … continue reading

My first order of business on this bleak and misting day, was to get some prep work done for today's open house at Prairie Place on 1st condominiums.  By the time I had everything readied,  the hour had come for me to get over to St. Paul Lutheran Church and run thru all the hymns and service music they had scheduled.  Since it was communion Sun … continue reading

Our weather has certainly cooled down in a hurry to where I actually had to turn the heater on in my car this morning as I was traveling to work.  But what can we expect when knowing we're on a fast track out of our month of September?  It doesn't surprise me in the least when knowing we haven't even had a light frost considering how climate chan … continue reading

Having got myself up and out of the house early, I figured I might as well take in an early church Service.  Thank goodness I arrived early enough to find a seat near the rear which for me is always a more comfortable place because I'd rather be looking at the backs of the heads of others instead of all the many more looking at mine.They were … continue reading

The Acts of a Few

The Acts of a Few
These dark and rainy days are getting to be rather annoying to the point where it's almost like the movie "Ground Hog Day", and you can be sure the temperaments of the general public has been reflective of it. I haven't heard anything to substantiate it, but I'd wager this southerly wind and rain is the by-product of the pounding Texas is getting f … continue reading

Wandering Shamelessly About
Another super-sultry day came and went, and you can believe I was staying out of it as much as possible.  While speaking with one of our teachers today, she mentioned how the students were acting up in a fashion as though we were in the midst of a full moon.  I did remind her that high humidity does have a negative effect on our younger crowd to … continue reading
