HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
Off to market this morning with no signs of the nasty weather predicted for later in the day.
It is 25 degrees this morning but is warming up quickly in the bright sunshine.
Market was slow as expected but I am thankful for what I did sell on this Valentine Saturday.
Hubbie left after reading the newspaper and stopped by Sam's Club, Tractor Supply and Walmart to get us stocked up on things we need and animal feed for the week. He called and said all the stores were crazy crowded. I guess this weather forecast for next week is already got folks stocking up !!
The 15th named winter storm, Octavia is poised to bring us a definite taste of winter weather.
A winter storm advisory is already issued giving plenty of advanced notice.
I stopped at Ingles on Asheville hwy and it wasn't as bad crowded as hubbie had said the one on our side of town was.
I got my things for tomorrow's lunch and headed home.
The wind is starting to blow pretty hard as I get home but the temperature is still in the upper 40's.
The clouds are starting to look pretty ominous this evening.
I enjoyed a nice break just sitting in the living room watching the wind blow the trees and the birds get buffeted around by the wind as they tried to get to their warm night time places.
After chores and supper I relaxed again with my 4-legged kids and watched a Duke / Syracuse ballgame which Duke won.
This has been a nice quiet Valentines Day and as I close for the evening I am praying that we keep our power with all the high winds outside. We have fires in both woodstoves tonight so we will be warm but we will have to come up with a cooking plan for the large roast beef we have in the crock pot !!
See you in church to worship our loving Lord tomorrow.
