The Calendar may say that it’s early November, but the thermometer looks more like it should be early January. With temperatures falling into the low 20’s tonight, Newnan GA will be about ten degrees colder than Juneau Alaska. It’s also a “chilling” reminder that the days of 2013 are dwindling, and that the holiday season is just around the corner and that 2014 is not far behind. The clock always seems to accelerate from mid-November through New Years Day, and I’m looking forward to the frenzy of festivities that are about to descend upon us. But for now, I just want to stay warm.   Now where did I put that extra blanket?

Situated thirty miles Southwest of Atlanta, Newnan Georgia combines the charm and ambience of an antebellum village with all of the conveniences and amenities of a big city. The historic Newnan Downtown Square hasn’t changed very much over all of the years, but there have been some changes. Since the opening of the New Justice Center on the south side of town, the old courthouse now houses some minor agencies and the Newnan / Coweta County Visitor Center. It’s a great first stop for those seeking information about what to see and do while visiting the area. In addition to the many shops and restaurants punctuating the Square, the newly restored Carnegie Library is now one of the cornerstones of Downtown. There are also several parks within walking distance of Downtown, beautifully lands...

We are expecting a hard freeze in Newnan Georgia tonight. It’s a bit early for freezing temperatures here in the South. We usually don’t see weather this cold until early December. And so I had to go outside and harvest the last of the Summer vegetables. I’ll pickle the peppers tomorrow and place the last tomatoes on the window sill to ripen. It’s also a good reminder to get my business plan for 2014 in order. With just over two months left before the New Year, the time for preparation is waning quickly.   And since I’ll be spending less time tending the garden, I need something to keep me busy anyway!

I did something today I haven’t done in August in all of the forty years that I have been living in Georgia. I turned the heat on in my car! This is Newnan Georgia for crying out loud, not Seattle Washington. Augusta Maine or Anchorage Alaska! We have been experiencing record “low highs” over the past few days and while temperatures are still in the sixties the blowing rain makes it feel a lot colder. We are certainly more accustomed to record highs in August than these record low highs! It feels positively chilly.   And I could use a cup of hot coffee.

Market Day in Newnan Georgia is the first Saturday of every month. The Old Courthouse Square will be surrounded with vendors offering everything from local agricultural products to handmade crafts and folk art. The scene will be enhanced by strains of local street musicians (including yours truly) that add to the general gaiety of the festival. Be sure to come early because the market is officially open from 10:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M.   There is plenty of free parking available!

Attired afresh in dainty lacePerfumed with fragrant scented graceThat beckons suitors from abroad,To kiss a nectar sweetened  frond!                 (R Weisser 2013) It Springtime at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in CowetaCountyGeorgia. The park is less than two years old, and it will take decades for the land to be returned to a primeval state. But there are hints of what is to come throughout the expanse of preserved acreage. The various ecosystems of the park allow for a great diversity of flora and fauna. Whether one is exploring the bogs and wetlands in the low areas or the rock outcroppings on the hills, one is certain to discover many hidden treasure if one looks closely enough. Chattahoochee Bend State Park is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon or to enjoy an extended campi...

Saturday April 6 2013 is Market Day in Newnan Georgia! The Old Courthouse Square will be transformed into a bazaar with vendors purveying local products, tasty treats, and unique and unusual crafts. In addition, the once a month event coincides with “Pickin’ on the Square” which provides a wonderful background of acoustic music. I will be playing on the East Courthouse Steps from 11:00 A.M. until 1:30 P.M. with some of my fellow music enthusiasts, so please come by and say hello. The weatherman is calling for no rain and temperatures in the 70’s so it will be a perfect time to get outside and enjoy all that Downtown Newnan has to offer. I hope to see you there!

The caller from out of state said that they could spend up to $300K. After having them chat with a Georgia loan officer, I set up some houses for them to see on their visit. As it turns out, they were surprised that the house that they were looking for was not in the $300,000 price range. What they needed and wanted was priced at HALF of that amount. Here in Coweta County Georgia you can purchase a brand new 4500 sq. ft. home with all of the bells and whistles for around $280K-$300K. You can have a 2500 sq. ft. home built for around $170K.

Coweta County real estate is one of the best values anywhere! N...

Snow in time for Christmas is a rare event in Newnan andCowetaCountyGeorgia. But it can happen and a few years back we had a significant snowfall on Christmas day. And while we will not experience a white Christmas in 2012, there is a slight chance for some wet flurries by next week. So although we will not need a sleigh to get around, we may enjoy a little Christmas atmosphere …literally! Here’s hoping that your Christmas weather is exactly what you want it to be!
