  1. Wow! Fishing trips are great and even better when you catch something other than logs. It is also so relaxing. I haven't been fishing in at least 3 years. Fishing poles might be calling my name. Annarchy, glad to know your mom is doing better. Love the ducks, I think they are waiting for more food. My neighbor called me over her house this afternoon. She found a baby rabbit. She had it in a cooler for the time being because of the dogs. Hoping she will call someone to take it and take care of it till it can be released. Still going through all the food in house
  2. Last I checked here a few days ago, gas was 2.69. Over where our church is it was 2.63. Problem is. it is in two totally different directions. So will wait till Sunday to fill up again.
  3. Prayers going out for your mom to be better and she gets to the cardio doc. soon. Mt. Rider glad to know you are doing better also. It is 12:45 here and I am wide awake. Been working on the food still. getting more boxed food together to take to church. I am only keeping so much and the rest goes. Know way one person can eat all that and now that daughter is in N. Carolina and Grandson has moved to Washington to live with his sister and her husband. They won't be raiding my pantry anymore. So no need to keep all that food. And since our church is feeding at least 40 to 45
  4. Hello Paulene. I think just doing the squares would be easier for me with my arthritic hands. I want to hopefully get enough out of them to make a quilt for each of the grandchildren and one for my daughter as well. And for me if I can get enough material out of them. He had at least 40 pair of jeans if not more. I had packed up all the ones he had when he lost all that weight and they are still in shed stored away. So hoping to get a few quilts out of them. Jeepers I think I best be getting to that fabric shop. I will need the cross stitch thread for them and I will need more thread f
  5. I like that quilt. Very pretty. Dh had lots of jeans, so I think I just might make a jean quilt with them. I was thinking using those clothes for quilts as if there is ever an EMP I could keep warm. I think they would be great for that. Though the one I want to make for the memory quilt will be from his tea shirts. He had a lot of the fishing ones and of course we can't leave out star wars. He wore all those shirts and liked them a lot. So the memory quilt will be made from that. I want to fix that one to hang on wall. The rest I can use on beds. I am going to just pack up everything till I
  6. Kappy glad you all made it through and got nothing but rain. Hope everyone else is doing better and that Mothers brother is now much better. Took a trunk and backseat of food to the church this morning. It was a lot of food. I still have boxed food to go through and pack up to send. What I took this morning was mostly canned goods. I would never have been able to eat all that. I did keep 12 cans of everything and I do have my foods that I canned so doing the way I did it will keep me out of the stores for at least 3 months. Going to head out to cemetery in the mornin
  7. I don't have any little ones anymore. My youngest is 19 years old. Don't see any great grandkids in the near future yet. But keep hoping.
  8. euphrasyne, I agree with that. Only buy what you know you will use as the rest is just a waste. Right now I am going through a lot of food. Not that we didn't eat it, but because it is just me now and I will never eat all of it before it would be so far out of date, i would have to trash it. So I am going to have a car load to carry to the church tomorrow. Now that the kids have moved away, they won't be here to raid my pantry's like they used to. So not keeping it. As for clothes, I have bought socks and underwear before the price went way up and the shortages have already starte
  9. Yes Kappy, what Jeepers said. We have been worried about you guys. Glad to know you are both doing ok. Mt. Rider still keeping you and family in prayer. Hope things are better. Jeepers praying for those headaches to stop. I know they are no fun. I get them if I turn my neck to much or lay wrong and get my neck hurting. Grandson got to Washington state Sat. afternoon and went job hunting today and landed a job. That was fast. So far he seems to love it there. Lots to do. Hiking, paddleboards. And lots of other things. His sister will keep him very busy as she also
  10. Went to sunrise service this morning and then back again for our 10 am service. It was great. Came home and went to the cemetery to check out the plack. Everything was good. They just have it sitting on ground and will be setting it in tomorrow. I got the Easter flowers on the graveside. Will be going back tomorrow to make sure they have everything set right. Granddaughter might be going with me this time. She made a coconut cake from scratch. First time and it turned out really good. She's becoming a great little cook. Grandson is now in Washington state and has called me several tim
  11. From what I understand, cotton is going up. which means anyone that loves flannel is also going to pay a heavy price for it. I need to get to JoAnn fabrics and have not been able to get there yet. Missed one good sale, don't want to mill another. Plastic has started going way up. I went to both Low's and home depot and the plastic containers were 49.00. I am not going to pay that for a plastic container. So I need to go to Wal mart and general dollar store. I bought some from general dollar last time and the were 13.00. they are not as heavy as the others, but for what I want, they will
  12. I agree. Use the sheets for dehydrators. Also Lem's sell them as well. I have a 9 tray dehydrator. And I have those sheets just for that. Food grade safe.
  13. Mother I am so sorry to hear about your brother. Keeping him in . I do agree that everyone is done with this corvid mess and wants to go back to living again in a normal way. But this virus is far from over. If it keeps mutating like they were saying, I am starting to wonder if the vaccine will work on these new strains. I have not gotten the vaccine as I have an autoimmune disease and I need to see the doctor first anyway. But I really don't think I am going to get it. To early yet to see how this will effect people in the long run. I do wear a mask when I go to stores an
  14. Well we didn't get any snow but we were under freeze warnings for 2 nights. Glad I didn't get my veggies planted yet. Thinking I will wait a bit before I get them planted. Want to make sure we are no longer going to have frost and freezing weather. Has anyone heard from Kappy?
  15. Mt. Rider, glad the horse back riding helped you. May you continue to get better with each time you go riding. Today I have done nothing but watch Biblical movies on TV all day. Dh and i always watched there movies through out the year, but mostly during the Easter holidays. So I am keeping that tradition. I love to watch those movies anyway, and it is something Dh and I always did. I will be going to the sunrise service at 7 am and then for the regular service at 10 am. Then going to head to the cemetery as the plack has been put down and I need to make sure it is right. And I
