A beautiful Sunday morning as I do chores and get ready for church today.
Church was good, Aa and Re brought baby BB for his first church service and he slept through the entire thing. Little EL was really good even though the church got very hot this morning, guess someone forgot to consider the warmth of this nice day.
A friend of mine and her husband joined our church this morning, may all the glory go to God.
For lunch on this nice upper 60's sunny day we grilled hamburgers, hot dogs and bratts on the grill.
The wind was blowing harder than we expected so hubbie and I had to put up a wind break to keep the grill light from being blown out. The grill sits in the outside covered patio overlooking the road and always catches a nice breeze, but when its windy, it is really windy in there.
#2 son, daughter, Aa, Re , little EL, and baby BB were our only guest today as #1 son's family went to have lunch with d-in-love's mom and dad at their restaurant in Lake Lure.
We had a very nice visit and EL choose a new playmate in #2 son since g-son wasn't here today !
After everyone left I sat outside for a while until the sun started down and the wind picked up making it even cooler.
Love that beautiful clear blue sky.
Hubbie and I finished the leg mite treatment on the Silkies this evening.
#1 son came by for a visit and g-son came up to get some chicken noodle soup that his mom was craving for supper tonight.
One of Aa's black angus cows had a little heifer calf this evening.
Hubbie and I had a light supper then relaxed for the evening.
It is still 47 degrees at 11:00 tonight for the warmest overnight in quite some time, although the rain is predicted to start before daybreak tomorrow.
In news of today , a college basketball legend passed away this morning. Dean Smith who coached the Tar Heels of UNC for 36 years, from 1961 thru 1997 and served as an assistant coach there from 1958-1961. He also made a lasting impression on all of college basketball .
He had health problems in the last several years.  Back in January of 1981, hubbie and I went with a couple friends to Clemson to watch the UNC / Clemson basketball game. Here is a picture I took of Coach Dean Smith meeting with one of the refs and the Clemson coach.
R.I.P. Coach Smith and my prayers go out to his family, may God comfort them at this time.
I am thankful for a wonderful day and the opportunity to get out and enjoy the nice warm sunshine.
God is good !!
Good Night and God Bless.

Your weather sounds so wonderful compared to our cold damp weather. A snow/rain mix is expected for today. Grilling outside for us won't happen for a while as the snow banks are still about 3 feet high. Blessings
