Pre-Passion Puppy

Pre-Passion Puppy
I was delighted to hear that next weekend, the temps are to be hovering around 60 degrees. That's noticeably warmer than what we'd normally find in the first week of March, but if it does get that warm, then what the forecasters said about record high temps in the near future, will end up being a very good weather call of theirs. I was somewhat sur … continue reading

The Summer Kitchen

The Summer Kitchen
It looked like Ash Wednesday started off on a good footing this morning, but when it suddenly started snowing large flakes, I began to wonder. In spite of it only lasting about five minutes or so, the size of those flakes reminded me of pieces of ash floating to the ground, which for the creepiest of reasons, made me think of the concentration camp … continue reading

Breaking-thru Winter

Breaking-thru Winter
With our days growing longer and the temps rising, I'm now finding it more bearable to be out and about early in the morning. There's nothing like traveling to work in the midst of dawn breaking, because it truly feels like another fresh start of a new day.After getting myself situated at the office, I looked at the clock and realized I did hav … continue reading

As much as I was wishing it would continue raining until this storm passed, my hopes were dashed when looking outside this afternoon and seeing those big wet snowflakes falling, and if it keeps at it much longer, there'll be some darned heavy snow to get moved come tomorrow morning.I had only two appointments outside my office today, which affo … continue reading

In spite of being a bright and sun-shining day, it was still just a bit too cold out for my taste. Around 1:00 pm, the sun warmed us up enough to where the snow started melting off the sidewalks and over-hangs of our Downtown buildings and creating puddles, so just to be on the safe side, I swept as much of it away from the front of my building bec … continue reading

It was a welcoming Monday when finding it not so terribly cold as I was driving all the earlier to the office this morning due to some little errands needing to be run before my opening hour arrived.One of my clients called and asked that I post one of his rentals for lease since it's now vacant, cleaned up, and ready to show. Shortly thereafte … continue reading

I hope everyone celebrating last night made it safely home without any unfortunate turn of events, and above all, after waking this morning, there were no lingering guilts suddenly coming to mind from something that was said or done to another.There've been a number of times I've been around people who've consumed too much giggle water and then … continue reading

A Merry 2019 Christmas

A Merry 2019 Christmas
As I was heading eastward early this morning on the Avenue of the Saints, I was cursing myself for not having taken my camera with me while driving in the direction of an absolutely stunning sunrise. It actually reminded me of something one of the old masters would've painted as a backdrop of something out of the Renaissance Age. I dare say it was … continue reading

Warbling Away

Another beautiful day happened here in North Iowa, and you can bet I was out enjoying it as much as possible. In spite of it being the shortest day of the year, it felt like a delightful Fall day instead of being the official beginning of our Winter.I had a very good repeat showing of 415 - 1st St. SE this morning, and this time the buyers brou … continue reading

I have a feeling we're going to get some precipitation in the night due to how exceptionally damp it grew before sunset. I stepped outdoors for only a minute or two and wouldn't you know it, the chill had already begun reaching into my bones.While visiting with a gentleman this morning, I mentioned how we all get un-accustomed to doing things w … continue reading
