Tell-tale-tit!

Tell-tale-tit!
Another blistering day arrived in North Iowa, and to make matters worse, we got just enough rain to get the pavement wet, which meant our humidity level was going to be even higher. When I looked at the marquis at our downtown bank, it read 98 degrees, but just wondering if that was the "shade" temperature.I received a call today from one of th … continue reading

Double-deep Parking

Double-deep Parking
Oh my goodness! We sure had a good freeze over the night and when I looked at the thermometer when leaving for work, it was eighteen degrees. Ouch! With that said, we'll be seeing all the rest of our trees loosing the leaves they've been holding fast.Since I didn't have any morning appointments, I helped a sassy friend of mine move a few things … continue reading

Quietly and Freely

Quietly and Freely
My morning was even earlier than it's been of late, and mostly due to my needing to get some desk work done before my early appointment to show a home. I did manage to also get my office floors cleaned once again since I've been on a burn of late to keep it as clean as possible during these coronavirus months.Before sunrise, I went out and plac … continue reading

Industrious and Forward-thinking

Industrious and Forward-thinking
It was an early start for me this morning and my first and foremost duty was to get my Sunday morning prayer session completed which as I mentioned before, has been a very good habit I re-connected with as it has helped immensely with the ridding of my mind the toxic thoughts that've built up over the prior week. When dealing with the public, we ca … continue reading

It was a pleasant surprise to find it raining in the night and on into our early morning and all the happier for it, but now when looking at our week ahead, we'll be bracing ourselves for a scorcher of a week. If anyone says our weather patterns haven't changed, they're in absolute denial. I know we've had a hot day or two at the end of August, but … continue reading

Their Fatal Flaw

Their Fatal Flaw
I hurried to the office this morning to get myself prepared for an early showing over in Clear Lake as well as returning phone calls that came in after hours.  Before leaving, I rang up one of my dear ones to see how she's been faring with the China-virus, and glad to hear all has been well with her.We spoke about our market conditions because … continue reading

It was a welcome relief to find the wind having changed direction today, and bringing with it the dry cooler air we've been waiting for. Now that we're less than a week away from the 1st of August, perhaps our evenings will begin cooling down to where we can have our windows open.My first order of business was to get some appointments lined up … continue reading

Window to a World

Another delightful day happened in our little region, and glad for it because I had some extra traveling to do this afternoon. Pretty much all of my morning was consumed by desk work, returning phone calls from yesterday, and paying some bills that had recently arrived. I also had to deal with a small situation which was a spill-over from one of la … continue reading

Curse Bucket

Without a doubt, by the time I arrived home, I truly felt as though I'd been ridden hard and put away wet, and mostly due to the non-stop tasks both big and small I had on today's plate.Weather-wise, I'd say it was also an interesting one where we had overcasts skies, a little rain, and then a solid blue the rest of the afternoon. I didn't have … continue reading

Another scorcher came and went, and it looks like we're going to have repeat days the entire week. Since we haven't had any rain coupled with these high temps, people are going to be out watering their flowerbeds and gardens, just to keep them from being stressed. If these climate changes continue, I won't be surprised if more gardeners are going t … continue reading
