The sun is shining brightly again today as I get the chores done a little early so I can get a turkey breast in the oven and get the dressing made before I go to church.
Church was good we are still in the book of Esther. The church always presents a red rose to new parents and they gave it to us to bring home to Re and Aa.
Lunch bunch was very small today, only daughter made it, everyone else had other plans. #2 son came by after his golf game and took left overs home for his supper.
Hubbie and I used this Sunday afternoon for what Sunday's are supposed to be used for , we rested !
He in the recliner and me on the couch with my 4-legged kids, watched a football play-off game and a UNC/ Virginia Tech basketball game which UNC won.
We did get out this evening to do the chores and then back to our resting positions !!
We need days like this once in a while to recharge and refocus for the week ahead.
I saw this photo on my photography friend's facebook page and thought it was worth reposting.
This is today's early morning "wanning cresent" moon.
This is one of the very few pictures of my paternal grandmother. Her name was Martha Louise Wilkie Pryor. She probably didn't have much time for pics with having 13 children. I love this picture with the mountains behind her.
Great Grandmother then married a man 30 years older than her, his name was Dobson Burrows Freeman. He taught her and both the boys how to read and write and from my grandfather's notes he was their savior as he was very good to them and taught them all they needed to know to be successful in life. He died in 1871 and is buried in Raleigh,NC I think at Dorothy Dix Hospital's graveyard as he met with an accident of a blow to the head which rendered him mentally challenged.
Husband number three was very interesting as great grandmother, who was 35 in 1871 when husband number two died, at some point afterward married a man who was 22 years younger than she was. His name was John Bunion Huntley. I don't know exactly when they married but in the 1880 Census records they were married ,living in Edneyville.NC, her age was listed as 40 and his was listed as 21. When Susan died in July of 1922 he hand carved her head stone, both front and back.
She Lived & Died
In Sweetest Love
To many on Earth
and One Above
Gone to dwell Among the Blest
There with her Savyer
To Forever Rest
Thankful tonight for a blessed restful Sunday and praying that His will be done in all that I do.
Good Night and God Bless.
