Up early to greet g-son and fix him his breakfast. I go ahead and get ready for market while he eats and that saves me loads of time when I get back home to get ready to go.
I am always earlier on Thursday than I am on Saturday.
After I got set up this morning I had a few early sales and then I was wondering if someone locked the doors. Very few customers came in all day, but I had a couple orders picked up and did manage a few sales so I was very thankful.
I left a few minutes early because I had a couple extra stops to make. I saw an ad with a gift for g-son that was on sale at Big Lots so that was my last stop.  The cashier was really nice as the sale didn't start until Saturday but she gave me the sales price today.
I made it home at 4:30 and fed the chickens and let all the dogs out for a run before I started unloading the van. Hubbie came in from work to help before I got too far along.
I barely got chores done before darkness fell. I will be so glad when the days start getting longer !!
After supper I rested  with my 4-legged kids who were more than glad to snuggle since they hadn't seen me since this morning.
Today was a normal temperature day for a change at 52 degrees with mostly clouds. Tonight it is still supposed to be about 10 degrees above normal at 40 but the air feels chillier because of the dampness.
Hubbie informed me tonight that we should probably buy a new wood stove for downstairs. The one we use down there is very old and he feels the "baffle" is worn and allowing smoke to get into the house. That stove is a Bat Cave brand stove that I bought new back about 1975 for use in a built on section on the mobile home I lived in. When hubbie and I built this house in the early 80's  we moved the stove up here and for several years it was our only heat source in our new house,we had it upstairs back then.
In the late 80's we had a heat pump put in but mostly for the air conditioning in the summertime as Hubbie was working 3rd shift. We still used the  woodstove for most of our heat.
About 10 years ago we bought a new Appalachian wood stove for the upstairs and moved the Bat cave stove downstairs where it has served as heat for daughter's apartment when she lived down there and also heats the entire house if we leave the downstairs door open.
That stove has been keeping us warm for over 37 years with no problems.   And yes I agreed it probably does need to be replaced. Only thing is I know what we replace it with won't hold a candle to the efficient service we have gotten from it.  And it was actually made in Bat Cave , NC just a few miles from where I live.

Oh well I guess we'll be going stove shopping soon.
All the weather gurus are scarily predicting a drastic weather change for us in 2-3 weeks. They say winter will get here and it will be cold and snowy. I will believe it when I see it but a new stove might keep the electric bills down if it does turn really cold.
Grateful to God for a blessed day and prayerfully thanking Him for the gift of His son's birth.
Good Night and God Bless.

We are getting teased about some colder weather coming here too.. BUT--I won't believe it til it happens. I do know that it's gonna warm up the next few days AGAIN... We had 1 1/2 cool days this week---with not one drop of rain other than a few sprinkles... People west of us had rain all day on Wed.... We NEED rain!!!! Oh Well....

Good Luck looking for a new stove. I'm sure the new ones won't ever be as good as that old one has been...

Have a good Friday.

I almost never leave remarks, however I browsed some responses on "BAT CAVE WOOD STOVE".
I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Could it be only me or do some of the remarks come across like they are coming from brain dead people?
:-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
Could you make a list of all of all your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
