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

I couldn't have been more prepared for today when knowing how stacked my appointments would be, and thankfully I made it to every one of them on time. My first showing began as early as 8:30 am, and my last one ended a little before 5:00 pm.My early appointment was with a delightful young couple I've been working with, and unfortunately they ju … continue reading

We certainly had a marked temperature spike today when finding it in the upper 70's.  Since I dressed warmly this morning, there were a few times I was feeling more than a bit uncomfortable.  Believe me, I'm not complaining in the least bit, because as far I'm concerned, it can stay this way until Christmas.  After listening to the many comments … continue reading

This morning was somewhat of a rush with appointments as well as getting the final docs rounded up on a sale that's closing tomorrow.  I always get a bit nervous whenever not having all required docs accounted for a day or two before.I was a tiny bit annoyed with the closing agent for not having started working on the numbers until the morning … continue reading

Oh Mercy!  We certainly had our workout with the snow today.  I'm not sure how much we ended up getting, but it was more than enough to keep me busy shoveling.  Thank goodness it wasn't so heavy because there must've been another six inches or more dropped on us.  I don't even want to think about what's coming our way this weekend.There wer … continue reading

Waiting Their Turn

Waiting Their Turn
Thank goodness the arctic vortex has finally ended and we're all in hopes to never see such horribly cold temperatures in our area ever again.  I was terribly saddened when hearing about all the deaths that occurred due to that cold.  My nerves were on edge the entire time because of my fears something terrible would happen with clients, customer … continue reading

Last night's wind and cold was quite the experience.  Most of us can certainly attest that once the temps start dropping down to such wicked degrees, our homes start making those creepy noises at night to where you think the cold has awakened them.  Thank goodness the wind went down before the sun came which meant we didn't have to deal with anot … continue reading

With our cloud cover this morning, I certainly wasn't expecting it to be -1 degrees when I got up this morning.  Indeed it's cold and I'm feeling it all the more as these days continue.  It seemed no matter where I was, I could feel the cold radiating from exterior walls which during these times, that same old question I've asked myself comes bac … continue reading

To the Far Corners

To the Far Corners
Having a few early morning errands to run before heading to the office, I was on the road about an hour earlier than normally, and for sure, it was pretty creepy while driving on vacant roads with a fog looking too much like a graveyard haze.   I was surprised to see it well into the 30's by mid-afternoon, and likely due to the sun finally decidi … continue reading

Heed its Warning

The temps seem to be tolerable today, but oh how the cold humidity seemed to saturate every fiber. I was hoping to see the sun shine but unfortunately that wasn't part of Mother Nature's plan.Most of my morning was spent working on up-coming closings which will hopefully take place before our year's end.  There'll certainly be some happy campe … continue reading
