Someone Has to Take out the Trash!  

A lot of the garden was put in yesterday and to tell you the truth, I'm exhausted and can barely move.   The husband is still in the bed and I haven't heard a sound from him at all. 

I would love to take a picture of what we've accomplished but the garden has never seemed so far away.

I keep thinking about the things that need to be done this morning like, the trash needs to be taken out, the dishes need to be put up, the clothes need to go in the washer, and grandmas school needs to open.  Just thinking about it all exhausts me because everything hurts from my fingers to my toes.!   I need some energy and a pain pill.  Quick.



Please a comment and let me know how it's going in your neck of the woods.

What I stocked up on this week:

No photo description available.

I decided on Saturday's that I will post what I stocked up on this past week.  It may be food, toiletries, or even garden produce.  So here is my first installment:

Going for a ride the husband he had to stop at the Family Dollar in a small town we were going through.  So I sighed and put on my mask.  You know, going to the store is just not as fun as it used to be.  Luckily, not a soul was in their except a older gentlemen (who by the way was not wearing a mask) so I just made sure to stay far away from him.  I did take  this chance to shop around a bit as fast as I could.  I found this soap in the clearance isle.  It's was $1.41 for 3 bars (regular price is $4.75)  so I bought what was left on the shelf (4).   I consider it a great deal and will put it back for winter time use.

I encourage you to start a stocking your pantry when you find a deal on something that is used often in your household.

Free Kindle Books for Today 5/29/20 Plus Stocking Up Again!

Stocking Up Again!

I glad to say that I didn't worry about the toilet paper when the virus started, in fact I was able to give 1/2 of my stockpile to my daughter.  I'm not bragging or anything and I admit that I had a few holes in my pantry but overall I did pretty well.  

But...like I said there were holes in my pantry and I had to get a few grocery pickups and make a few runs for meat.  Here is what I found myself mostly getting pick up orders for:  

1. I crave fresh fruit and vegetables and that is a problem that I need to find a solution for in the winter. There is nothing like fresh!  

2.  Fresh milk:  I need a cow because unless it's a dire situation no one will drink dry milk.  Dry milk is good to have on hand and use in recipes though. 

3.  Junk food- there is a craving for the sweet things.  Although you need healthy food to keep your immune system running great until you get a grip on things, you will be needing some comfort food.  

4.  We still like meat and I found out that my freezer was not as full as it should have been.  We worked it out though.  

How did I learn about stockpiling?  I always had extra but without a rhyme or reason.  Oh, I might have a lot of shampoo but I'm pretty sure a couple of years ago that I wouldn't have enough food to last us for at least 6 months.

My first thought, that brought me on this journey of stockpiling was with the wild weather, that we would have a food shortage and I needed to be prepared (I had no idea what was coming my way).  So, with that foreboding thought,  I found myself searching and  finding out what I needed to build my pantry from a variety of people and places. One of my favorites was the community I found at Patsy's classroom.  She is having another class soon so that more people can learn how to stock pile what's important.  She will guide you through the steps to building up your pantry a little at a time.  The best part is that it is free!  You can find out more and sign up here.  

So, yes I'm stockpiling again when I'm able to find things.  I'm replenishing things that we used more of..just in case.  If your not ready, you should too!

Picking lettuce out my back door
Image may contain: plant, outdoor and food

We needed lettuce for our sandwiches yesterday and it was so nice to be able to pick some out just outside my back door.  I have been using the outer leaves of the butter crunch lettuce for wilted lettuce and salads too.  Nice not to have to go to the store.


Image may contain: plant and outdoor
The leaf lettuce is coming along too in the grow bag.  I'm going to try and thin it out today.
