Beyond Adequate

Beyond Adequate
This vacillating of overcast to sunshine, made for an interesting day, as whenever a cloud arrived, I was suddenly feeling much colder. Because I had an early morning appointment to do an exterior and interior inspection, I made sure to dress warm before heading to office.My first duty, was to spend time emailing the sellers' disclosures to the … continue reading

Room for a Pony

Room for a Pony
Another half-overcast day came and went, while this chill continues to remain in our air. I actually noticed a clump of tulips blooming in a very well-protected area of a building which offered some natural color to its dull landscape. I think we all got ourselves spoiled with those abnormally high temps of several weeks ago.I arrived at office … continue reading

Now Dagnabbit

Now Dagnabbit
There've been many who've believed April is always full of sunshine, fragrant showers, and blooming daffodils, but we must remember, we're living in Northern Iowa along with being in the midst of a climate change. In spite of the sun finally coming out in our late afternoon, for the most part, it was just but one miserable day. Here we are at the 1 … continue reading

Postage Stamp Lot

Postage Stamp Lot
It must've been so soft of a rain in the night to the point where it didn't even awaken me. With this continued heat wave, all of Nature is beginning to awaken from winter's rest. I had to make a quick trip out of town early this morning, and while on the highways and blacktops, I couldn't help noticing all the activity going on with the grain truc … continue reading

Beloved Care-taking

Beloved Care-taking
This chill is continuing to haunt us, but at least it appears to be on its way out, and then replaced by what looks like above-normal temps for this time of year. This is the season where we find ourselves winter-bundled in the morning, and whenafter our sun gets high and we're out of the wind, our heavy outerwear becomes a bit too much.My firs … continue reading

No April 1st

No April 1st
We certainly had another good bone-chilling today, along with a few snow flurries which came as a surprise, but at least we're soon to be out of North Iowa's most unpredictable month of March. People have been mentioning that come Monday, it's supposed to be in the upper 70's which sounds almost un-heard of, and if such temps do arrive, let's hope … continue reading

Onto Something

Onto Something
I was exceptionally thankful it didn't start raining around noontime today as was predicted, which allowed me to get some decent photos taken of my new listing over at 422 S. Tennessee Place. If there'd be anyone looking for a main floor condominium unit in an affordable price, that's the one. It's been exceptionally well maintained, along with hav … continue reading

The Passage of Time

The Passage of Time
There's no question today's weather has been the focus of everyone's discussion, and likely due to having to drive from point A to B while working very hard at getting there without having a fender-bender. There was a point while out driving around mid-morning, when being near-certain I was going to slide into someone, our another into me. Our stre … continue reading

Out of my Sphere

Out of my Sphere
For the strangest of reasons, "hump day" felt more like a Thursday from the time I headed in the direction of my office, to long past my arrival at home. I've had days like this before, and for whatever reason, they happen without rhyme or reason.I couldn't believe seeing it 66 degrees outdoors while heading out of town to an appointment around … continue reading

The Real Path

The Real Path
Now if the wind wasn't blowing so hard, I would've branded it as another remarkable early March day. I'm sure everyone's happy to see their lawns drying out enough to where they can get out and start raking up all the dead leaves and grasses that've accumulated before their grass begins to grow. I'm still in dis-belief when seeing how much earlier … continue reading
