The clock hands in my home office don’t run smoothly. They sit motionless, then jump forward at the last second. The carpet in my bedroom has several small wrinkles, and the floor has a squeaky spot in one corner. The shelves inside my kitchen cabinets all look the same, except for the one holding my spices. The wood is slightly lighter on that shelf.
Blondin Professional Real Estate would like to thank everyone who participated in the Light Up New Melle Contest. We had a great time viewing all of the amazing holiday lights. There were a record number of homes entered this year which made our job even more fun.

On Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020, the community of New Melle celebrated Christmas with the first ever Christmas Parade of Lights event. In an effort to spread some holiday cheer and put a COVID-conscious twist on traditional in-person caroling, the community was invited (via the New Melle 411 Facebook page) to assemble in a caravan of decorated vehicles to tour the neighborhoods of New Melle while playing recorded holiday music.

A new year offers the opportunity for each of us to make goals for ourselves. Sometimes we want to break bad habits and sometimes we’re hoping to create some healthy new habits. You could start jogging or eating more fruits and vegetables. Or you could develop a reading habit! Did you know that daily reading is linked to all kinds of physical and mental health benefits?
