I find this quote to be profoundly unvarnished. Simple in its message. The void is illusive. It creates an invisible divide between one’s self & our visions. The only chance we stand to encompass our dreams of success, is to understand all things are attainable. It will all depend on dedication, determination, & the valor we use to battle our way to the front of lines with. You don’t meet many people who can say, “I could, so I did.” Oh Contraire- I know about 130 people personally, who can & did. This lead me to the very reason in which I have found inspiration to share with you some insight on those very people, their dreams, their successes & their personal accounts.
It is spring in Wisconsin.. well.. sort of. I am starting to think Mother Nature went AWOL. However- we know that in due time the grass will start to brighten, displaying lush hues of striking emerald. We will find ourselves able to enjoy those lazy sun-drenched afternoons – accompanied by the unambiguous aroma of a charcoal barbecue. Everything that winter left barren & achromatic will come alive & I think we all deserve to catch up on our depleted levels of vitamin D! 🙂
Metal roofing has taken the exterior remodeling world by storm. This relatively new product is one that is innovative, eco-friendly, & reliable, while offering appreciable versatility. Now, if you are like me, I am a little tight on the checkbook. Sometimes I need a little (ok a lot) of convincing to justify spending a pretty penny on anything. I know, I know- talking about purchasing a new roof for our home can trigger a slight panic where our brain starts rapid firing S.O.S distress signals! On the contrary- a metal roof will not only provide you an unmatched appeal, it also won’t cost you a fortune!
Weather Tight presents- our WHITEOUT event! If you should join us for a little winter merrymaking, you could possibly be having drinks on us. YES! I know, how could it get better? Because, we here at Weather Tight like a a little leisure ourselves. So we wanted to get in on the action with everyone up on the slopes.
This tale is as old as time. Santa Claus – dons his sleigh with intrepid delight, piloted by Donner, Cupid, Blitzen, & so on & so forth. You know the one, he comes in through the chimney while you sleep nestled warm in your bed.. something about sugar plums, two stepping in your head! Or’e the fields & through the … oh, wait. That isn’t this, or this isn’t that!
The holidays are a time filled with yuletide & cheer. Everyone knows that this time of year brings families & loved ones together in celebration & tidings. Visiting with family who has not been home all year, or longer. Smiling children, glistening snow, the smell of fresh pine through the house. Yes, the holidays bring us together with the warm feeling of love & happiness. What a time of year!
But who are we kidding, the holidays.. ah, yes. The good with the bad. The calm before the storm.
Oh sweet, sweet summer.. slowly turning to fall in its vivid, vibrant glory.
fall-leave-gpxI stand at my kitchen window each morning, overlooking the sprawling old (& messy) locust tree & my barren patio. I slowly sip my coffee & mentally make a note for myself to get out there and start with the transitional work on the yard from summer to fall. Autumn is my favorite season, but I grow nostalgic for my poor hibiscus that is barely able to force out its blooms, for my daisies that stopped reaching up at the sun weeks ago &, well, my tomato plants which have all but shed their very roots.
