Another Day in Kentucky! Look wahat I get to see while I work...
Not long after I enjoyed my morning coffee, I loaded up Old Bessie with signs for my new listing. Brrrr....why is it suddenly so cold outside? It feels like a winter day.
I searched in my closet for a much warmer coat. On second thought better grab one with a hood. A pair of work boots might be good to have on hand too.
The frame for my sign had been freshly coated with a dusting of white paint a few hours before as I stood in the morning frost. Now it too got packed in the trunk for an upcoming deposit in some rich Kentucky loam.
Last check to see I had everything I would need to take care of my new seller's vacant house. Extra keys...yes I had 2 more cut yesterday when I had a moment to stop in the hardware store. Supra lock for the door, charged key to open it, copies of the listing to leave for the seller in a kitchen drawer...I think I'm ready to roll!
I point Old Bessie toward Berea and off we go. As I head down the road I can't help but think how gorgeous all the trees along the road are. Eye candy is EVERYWHERE! So....I stopped right in the road and took this picture right through my front windshield cause I don't want to forget this moment. November 15, 2007. Another day and all the wind might carry these leaves away and all I will have is just this memory. Now, you get to see it too.
By the time I get to the house the wind is really whipping me around and I am so glad I brought that heavier coat.I pulled up the FSBO signs and found a great spot for my sign. Put my lock on the front door and tested it, adjusted the thermostat. opened cabinets under the sink in case it gets too cold, noted that the smoke alarms were chirping, then went out back to tidy up the pool area and stashed unneeded items in the storage shed.
Whew....so glad that's completed! Would you believe that by the time I got home some fellow called me about the house? He had driven by my sign. Hmmm..maybe I should have buried St. Joseph while there. You never know what might help!
