Welcome back! Life on the homestead is zipping along as usual. Tonight, as we prepare for another backyard camp-out, I am trying to keep the dehydrator running full-time. My shelves are full of zucinni and summer squash. A yummy winter feast in the making!!!
Hi! Welcome back! Tonight I am contemplating the repacking of my bug-out bag. Yes, I am finally getting back to this project, mostly because I am deep cleaning and re-arranging my room which is causing me to deal with things I had tabled. The first Bag was a red transplant bag~ easy to spot from a distance! Now I am using a dark blue backpack. We'll be way less noticable and blend in with the others. For my initial content list for my primary bag I have chosen only the most critical items I would need if we were forced to walk out: 1. Personal documents 2. Prescriptions 3. Basic first aide kit 4. Bible 5. Emergency blankets 6. Addresses/ phone #'s 7. Maps 8. Books on wild edibles, etc. This isn't everything I would like to take, but these are the contents that we absolutely must have.
I am still knitting... Of course! Not that any of us believed I could stop!! This is a small batch I dropped off at Will County Community Youth Mental Health For the coat and hat drive. I broke down and bought 5 more skeens of yarn at Walmart... I was so sick of the colors I had already and the new pretty colors were calling my name. I am having so much fun making more hats with new color combinations. And, now, I am also trying to make more small hats so all the childrenms needs will be met. It's good to have a hobby that helps others, relaxes me and is in His will!
Hello! Today I whipped up a special breakfast to honor 2 days off in a row. First I melted butter in a fry pan and stirred in pieces of fresh tomato (1/4 lb) and zucinni (1 lb). While that simmered on low I added 1/2 tube of pork chorizo, some Adobo, 1 1/2 packets Sazon (with cilantro and tomato) and a teaspoon of home canned sofrito. I let it simmer until the zucinni was tender and stirred in 6 eggs. Cooked until done, it was wonderful~ and full of veggies!
It's so nice when a family works together! As times get tougher and we spiral towards 12.21.12, it becomes more and more critical that every member of a household does their part to keep things running and get ahead. At 8 years old, Matt is able to sort, wash, hang out and fold his own laundry. This takes a weight off my shoulders and frees up time to do other things. If a family is to survive, they must all work together!
