Another sunny bright warm mid 50's morning as I get ready for market.
Something unfamiliar must have made a trip through the yard over night as the dogs are all acting very perturbed and have their noses to the ground to follow the scent. Hopefully it's not a raccoon as there was a rabid raccoon killed earlier this week not far from our area in the county after it attacked the homeowners dogs. Hubbie says there is something in the barn again, he hears it rummaging around in the early morning when he gets in his truck to go to work. He is going to set our live trap tonight to hopefully catch it and relocate whatever it is.
He has caught raccoons before out of the barn and relocated them to unpopulated areas away from here.
I made it to market on time today and business started out really slow but picked up as the day went on. I am always very thankful for the amount I do sell each day.
The board of control in the market has bent the rules that say everything we sell in here has to be grown or made in Henderson county and allowed the lady across the isle from me, Ruby King, to bring fresh strawberries from South Carolina in here for sale and it has boosted my pound cake sales as everyone thinks strawberry short cake when they see the berries.
I'm not sure how this board decision will work out. I have an idea that it will open up a whole new can of worms in here with some of the vendors who love to cause trouble when they can. Guess that will remain to be seen.
Fortunately the lady that is being allowed to have the berries is one of the biggest trouble makers in here.
After market I ran the regular errands and made stops at Aldi, Walmart and the farm outlet for groceries and baking supplies then I took my van through the car wash to wash off some coke or coffee that some how got spashed all down the side of the van.
Daughter who has been in Chapel Hill since last night with the other basketball coaches to receive awards and recognition for some of the accomplishments their team accomplished this year.
This is the service awards they received. Congrats to all of the team.
He ate supper but I have a very scratchy throat this evening and don't feel much like eating so I rested and watched the news.
After chores and a hot cup of green tea I felt better and decided to sit out in the outside patio and watch the sunset tonight. The sky is pretty cloudy from a storm that is brewing off the coast of SC and it made some pretty colors for the setting sun.
With the 2015 hurricane season statistically over 3 weeks away mother nature is showing her own statistics as she is sending the first named storm of the season, Ana, into the coast of SC over the weekend making the Mother's day weekend beach trip a no no for the beaches of NC and SC this year.
Thankful for all the blessings of this day.
Good Night and God Bless.
