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

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

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

I’d Dance with the Devil

I’d Dance with the Devil
Today was certainly a busy one with my early morning showing of an absolutely beautiful home which I managed to get under contract yesterday. The buyers wanted to take another look at it, so I more than willingly obliged them. I got there a bit early so I would have all the lights turned on, and since they were familiar with the home, I pretty much … continue reading

Children of the Depression

Children of the Depression
After looking at the weather for these next four days, I wasn't the least bit happy when seeing what our overnight lows are supposed be, and hopefully some of our flowering fruit trees won't get their blossoms froze off, which will make for another shortage come Fall. At least we're not going to get pounded by that bomb cyclone which is supposed to … continue reading

Enough Chickens

Enough Chickens
It was one of those days that went by in a whoosh, which was fine by me because I was able to get some much-needed answers on several of my closing files, and fortunately, everything was given green lights to go. There's no question this China-virus is making the business of selling real estate all the more cumbersome, and especially when there are … continue reading

Rolling on a River

Rolling on a River
Happy May Day! I hope all of you deserving ones, got a surprise May basket, but unfortunately, I believe the basket giving has falling out of style, and now with the China-virus haunting us, there'll be all the more of our customs being dismissed as not up to speed with our times.Now that families are growing back together, perhaps there may po … continue reading

A Short Shelf Life

A Short Shelf Life
I made sure to get to the office early enough this morning just so to make several necessary, as well as overdue calls to near and dear ones. Fortunately I was able to catch both of them, just so to bring each of us up to speed on recent happenings in our lives. After having some long-awaited chats with them, I was glad to hear all was well on thei … continue reading

Like-minded Prayer Group

Like-minded Prayer Group
In spite of it being a little nippy out this morning, once the sun climbed higher, it turned out to be one heck of a nice day. My first order, was to find a quiet place outdoors, and far enough from the noise of the City, just so I could spend some time soul-cleansing. I'm pretty much out and over those online services that are being performed each … continue reading
