Chernobyl Mushroom

Chernobyl Mushroom
When I left for work this morning, I was shocked to find how it had suddenly turned warm again, and with the those temperatures, the chiggers were back out in force. Oh how I despise those nasty creatures. By the time mid-afternoon arrived, it was registering 94 degrees in the Downtown. It was sort of creepy cool when seeing the sun at a much lower … continue reading

A Carnivore’s Evening Meal
I'd say I was in a near constant state of motion from the time my car pulled up at the office this morning.  It came as no surprise because my appointment calendar was filled for the entire afternoon, while my morning hours were spent getting some much needed yard work done.  Even though the grass was wet, I plowed on in spite of it coming out of … continue reading

Thinking I was going to have an entirely free day to be laborious on Labor Day,  I later found my profession had me held captive for about half the time, but not to worry because I did get two things that were at the top of my list fully completed, so now there's two less things on my punch list.Since I was working alone and when not on the ph … continue reading

It was certainly a pleasant day with the sun and cooling north wind.  By the time noon rolled around, there were all the more strollers out and about in our Downtown.  In spite it being the last week of August, this weather feels more like the first half of September.My morning came and went in a whoosh with all the places to be and people to … continue reading

Reaching for Excellence
At least it was cooler outdoors today which was a welcome relief from yesterday's humidity and temps.  I've been reminded more than once this summer how thankful I am to be in an office building with tall ceilings and good air circulation via the number of transoms which are contained within.  I can see how people back before air conditioning was … continue reading

It would've been a near perfect day if the humidity hadn't been as high, but at least it didn't get up into the high 80's.  After having an extended appointment yesterday, and another one this afternoon, I'd say I'm already on overtime for this week, but as we Realtors know, you gotta make hay when the sun shines.Fortunately, we did manage to … continue reading

A Gothic Novel

A Gothic Novel
This morning's showers were unexpected, but I guess they were needed for our fields and gardens.  We should consider ourselves fortunate for not living in other areas of our State, because those locales are under drought conditions.  It just so happened I was speaking to someone today about the changes in our weather patterns to where we both agr … continue reading

Brooks that Babble

Brooks that Babble
When knowing I didn't have any immediate appointments scheduled this morning, I made a few rounds at my vacant listings, just to make sure all was well. While driving thru different districts, I couldn't help but notice how scruffy the yards of many homes were beginning to look which made me sad, because a generation or more ago, there were all the … continue reading

Never to Poke

Never to Poke
There were a few who believed today's temperatures were too cool, but for me it was near perfect.  Yes, we have those sun worshipers who like to lounge around in full sun waiting to get another seasonal body-bake, which is definitely not my cup of tea.I have absolutely no clue what inspires people with northern European tones to punish their e … continue reading
