A more January feeling morning greeted me as I hurried through chores before getting ready for church today.
We had a nice service today and the church was really full.
Back home I quickly put chicken leg and thigh quarters in smoker bags and got the oven started.
We had corn, green beans, mac and cheese and hubbie made a new coleslaw recipe that #1 son brought in last week. I'm not a big coleslaw lover but this was really good. The chicken not so hot as this was my first smoker bag trial and I think I just need to buy a small smoker grill and be done with it. We love smoked meat but just don't know if we would use a smoker enough to justify the cost.
After lunch and when the kitchen was cleaned #1 son took the tractor to his house to scrape his driveway, #2 son went to the grocery store, daughter and Kate her "little sister" who ate with us today left and d-in-love, hubbie, g-son and I headed over to the estate sales 1/2 price sale to get a couple saws hubbie spotted Friday.
I also bought a box of old newspapers which have some of the earliest pictures of Hendersonville in them.
This is the earliest known photo of Main Street taken around 1890.
I remember my dad telling stories of driving a wagon to town pulled by a team of oxen. Now I know why and I wonder if one of these wagons belongs to some of my family members?
The other papers have photos of many surrounding areas around the turn of the century. I'll have to get some of them in future blogs.
I almost payed full price Friday for these which was $10 but today thankfully they were still there and for $5. I have already gotten more than my monies worth of enjoyment from them !!
Hubbie got one of the saws he was wanting plus a couple other tools and a fertilizer spreader so it was a successful trip.
I worked on my picture organization project this evening after we watched the UNC/Georgia Tech b-ball game,which UNC won.
G-son will be coming really early in the morning so I'm calling it a day.
The weather all day has been more like January is supposed to be, even though the temperature said 48 and the sun was bright the breeze made it a day you wanted to be inside.
Tonight is supposed to be a mid 20's night.
Looks like January will leave as calmly as it came in weatherwise.
Thankful tonight for a wonderful Sunday full of loving family and blessing from God.
Good Night and God Bless.
