  1. So....we did it. We bit the bullet and we got the stove, it's on the way!! We are discussing what to put around it, what we need to get ready for it....I think things will be full crazy by October at some point, and we'd like to have it set up by then. I'll post pictures once we have it if anyone is interested!
  2. Wow. Shortly after I wrote that we wanted to get this cow, Hubby lost his job. We were tight for a while, but didn't get the cow. And now, praise God, he has a new, better job!! It pays more, and he works from home for the most part. That said, he still has to travel about 20%, so I am hesitant to get the cow. That means we (kids and I) would be in charge of milking while he's away. It gets to be a lot with the other chores, and a now 2 year old that still wants to cuddle with Mama especially if Dad is gone. So....not sure what to do. Prices for everything is going up, if you can find it, including dairy, so it sounds like a good idea....
  3. Anyone know how it's going now? I saw a video of long, LONG lines for food. I can't imagine. I'll see if I can find a link. https://youtu.be/fPpaUqmGgI4 My question is...how do you keep your food safe once you get it? I mean...if someone in the back of the line decides they don't want to wait or are worried their kids won't eat tonight? Desperate times. Yes, I agree with whoever said it makes you just want to hunker down and buckle up. May God help us.
  4. Hi everyone! Hubby and I are on the lookout for a new wood cook stove. Do any of you have one/use one? Any suggestions? We would like to get installed before winter. We had -17°F last Feb, but thankfully never lost electricity. If we did, it would have been disastrous!!
  5. We use Himalayan pink salt, too! For all our cooking and baking. I like it a lot! 😊
  6. Hubby filled up at Sam's on Friday, $2.79 a gallon. I wonder why it's so much cheaper here?
  7. Oh, my!! I'm not sure that we're even up to $3 yet, here in central KS. Here's hoping it stays that way!
  8. Wow!! That sounds fun! Well, you know what I mean...
  9. That's a lot of cows!! I'm not sure what we would do with all the milk!
  10. Thanks for the tips, and encouragement! I'm not sure I can convince DH on goats, but maybe someday! We have 7 in our family (including a 1.5 year old!), plus my parents and DH's dad. DD and I also make butter (and it's buttermilk), yogurt, farmer's cheese, and have high hopes of making more variety of cheeses. I realize it's a lot of work, but that's actually kinda what we're going for. And...so much to learn! Hopefully work ethic being one of them. Kids are 20, 9, 8, almost 7 and 1.5. I'll keep you posted! Hopefully we will get one this spring. Thanks again!!
  11. Anyone have one? We are hoping to get one soon.... Any tips or advice? Thanks!!
  12. $2.69 Central KS, yesterday. I'm thinking it will go up, too.
  13. I feel like I fell off the seat. I'm at the point that I don't care anymore. I should, I have kids. However....I feel like no matter how you look at it, the answer is not in the government, but in ourselves. So....I will dedicate myself (again) to raising Godly Children. What that means for this country I'm not sure, but it's the best I can offer to God, my family and the world. As for me and my house.....
  14. Ambergris, I apologise if I've ever personally offended you, never was my intention.
  15. Head low? ☑️ Powder dry: ☑️ Stay away from capitols: ☑️ Pantry full (and messy): ☑️ Veggie seeds ordered (yesterday!): ☑️ So....now I just need popcorn. It is national 🍿 day! 😊
