  1. I have raised beds and love them. I put the word out in the cafe one morning to the local ranchers that I would love to have some old cattle troughs that had holes in them. By that afternoon I had eight of them in various sizes in my yard. I put more holes in some of them except a few didn't even have bottoms...filled them with dirt mixed with peat moss and planted. I love them!!, they are very tall so I don't have to bend over and it out my garden out of reach of the bunnies. It also completely eliminated the mole and gopher problems I was having. This year we are putting a drip line to each one on a timer which will make the garden almost carefree. I will add in some mulch before I plant and be ready to go

  2. Picked up our beef at the butcher a week or so ago. Turns out to be $2.22 a pound. Totally hormone free and raised by the man who lives behind me. That will last us a year. Plus we have a freezer full of deer and a freezer full of chicken.

    Got 50 pounds of bacon on a really good deal lst week so I m good on that.

    Canned goods have been topped off, except for fresh veggies and fruit, I won't have to go to the store for over a year now. I volunteer at our food bank two days a week and in exchange we get pick of the fresh things, so I usually have plenty of potatoes, apples and such.



    Hopefully I will get some canning days in soon to can up and bunch of my goodies....although I am not a fan if a lot if the canned meats, so I just leave them frozen


    Work hours have been cut since December, so it is a good feeling to know I don't have to worry about food and household items for a long time.

  3. I'm glad you are doing well on your prep living....we have been living off preps since October.....the only thing I have bought since October 1 is fresh fruits. The weather is keeping hubby from working very much, I am always grateful for my preps during times like this. I don't know what people who don't prep do????

    Though your conscience is in the right place you also have a pragmatic streak and generally aren’t afraid to do your own dirty work! You’re no shrinking violet - but no daredevil either. You generally have little trouble seeing things from another person’s perspective but, at the same time, are no pushover. ‘Everything in moderation – including moderation’ might sum up your approach to life.

    Hmmmm. I guess I'm a lot closer to psychopath than the rest of you!!!! Rofl

  5. Freezers are full of deer and sale chicken and sale turkey. Beef for the year is at the butcher. I think we are pretty set. Gonna start canning pretty hard in a few weeks to get a lot of the chicken and turkey and misc canned up. Cellar is getting pretty full, but gonna add a lot more!!!

  6. I am all finished with our tax information...I do it monthly so not much to do at the end of the year except total everything up and wait on w2 forms. Plan this year is to pay off small side note on house, some small bills, and hubby's welding truck. That only leaves two more monthly bills ( my pickup and Harley) to be paid off in 2015 then we are debt free!!!, I am only planning a few projects this year so I can put a lot of money into the bills and savings. I am so excited about getting stuff paid off I can't wait!!!,

  7. I was one of the confirmed cases of swine flu a few years back....I sure don't want that again!!, I don't think I got out of bed for over two weeks, the headache was so bad I couldn't lift my head off the pillow....I hope it's not like that was

  8. The easiest dish ever, taste like lasagna. Cook a bag of wide egg noodles, brown a packAge of hamburger meat, drain off fat, pour into meat a can or two so spaghetti sauce , season with onion powder and garlic powder, simmer for about five minutes. Drain the noodles. Layer meat noodles meat noodles meat in a casserole dish. Cube up half a packGe of velvetta onto the top, cover the whole top with motzerella and bake until he cheese melts. This is my families favorite dish and mine too, it is so easy!!!

  9. I have been putting cabinets in my new craft room. I have been getting the unfinished ones at a local store that runs cheaper than lowes and putting them Ina nod painting them. They look great

  10. My family comes to my house. About 25-30 people. We have a nice meal then all will load up and head to the Black Friday sales. We have also invited a couple of friends this year (first time to do that) that really had no where else to go....

  11. Getting the house work caught up on, touch up painting in my newly constructed craft room, makes bunch of phone calls, get as much housework done as possible since this is a very busy week, I will be gone over the weekend to run my first full marathon, then I will be having 30or so people for thanksgiving

  12. I am currently changing my guest room into a craft room. I have put kitchen cabinets all the way around the room, with window seats in front of both windows with storage in them. One of the window seats is going to hold the cat litter box and he will have a cute little cat cutout to get into there through. Anyway, the corner cabinets are the ones with the lazy Susan's in them, so they are not as deep as the rest of the cabinets. Hopefully this weekend, we are gonna get some sides onto the end of the corner cabinet with hidden hinges so it opens and you can store stuff behind there. We have decided to use one for the guns we don't use too often and the other for ammo and other things. I think we will be able to get it where you can't see that they open. I am very excited!!!
