Smudge Ceilings

Smudge Ceilings
It was a quiet Sunday morning due to having attended a church service yesterday afternoon, and no scheduled playing of a piano or organ at another house of worship. With my early hours free, I donned my work clothes and off I headed to the office to check on a purchase agreement that was supposed to have been faxed while I was gone.  As I had hope … continue reading

Between Taxation

Between Taxation
If someone would've asked me as I was leaving the office to recall my day from beginning to end, I would've had to stop and think because of all the intervening circumstances that took place.  Every so often, days like this appear out of nowhere, and especially when I already had it fully planned the day before.  Oh well, it came and went without … continue reading

Out of that Storm’s Path

Out of that Storm’s Path
It was quite the whirlwind day, and I dare say I was out of my office more than in to the point where I don't think the engine of my vehicle ever had time to cool off.  Of course the first thing I had to do was get that light snow swept off the sidewalk in front of my office.  When finished and looking up and down the block, my freshly broomed pa … continue reading

It was wonderful to have the sun out since it was in the low teens when I arrived at the office this morning.  Unfortunately it looks like we're going to have snow coming our way the end of this week which many of us aren't happy about since we've been blessed with no snow for so many weeks.  At least we're out of our normal frigid period which u … continue reading

Temporal Exhaustion

Temporal Exhaustion
At least it was ten degrees warmer this morning than it was yesterday which was a positive thing.  Most of us have already forgotten how nearly every winter when it's very cold and all the drier indoors due to our furnaces running all the more, our fingertips start getting those deep cracks in them that sometimes bleed along with being very painfu … continue reading

You all may be thinking I'm beating the subject of our weather to death, but I just can't get over how pleasant it's been for the first half of January.  I've been telling everyone to savor every moment of it because it could change very quickly.My first little job this morning was to set out my open house signs on street corners so to help wi … continue reading

Soon to be Nevermore

Soon to be Nevermore
I sure wasn't expecting light snow this morning, but at least it did stop before my open house began along with the sun finally coming out just as 1:00 pm rolled around.  It was almost like magic it happened in such a way since I did so want the sun to be shining thru those beautiful tall windows at 115 S. Connecticut.There were far more peopl … continue reading

A Terrible Shame

A Terrible Shame
So here we are again at the crossroads of nature's yearly tug-of-war between night and day.  With this being the day where we have the least amount of daylight during the entire year, beginning tomorrow, the hours of sunlight will once again steadily grow longer which is just fine by nearly all of us.As was expected, it was quite the busy day … continue reading

Strong, Stately, and Enduring
Fortunately I managed to get up to Lake Mills and then over to Northwood this morning in a timely fashion to where I made it back to Mason City just about the hour I'd expected.My first stop was at a client of mine where I picked her up and drove to the historic Lutheran Church where she's a member.  Some time ago I asked her if it would be po … continue reading

Bent Reflections
My first and foremost job this morning was to take a drive up to Northwood to get a document recorded at their County Courthouse.  I've been working diligently at making sure there's nothing standing in the way of a particular loan transaction which as far as I'm concerned, has been taking far longer than normal.  With the advent of internet bank … continue reading
