  1. This week i bought more candle wicks. We have a scentcy warmer and I'm always hated tossing the old wax melts. We're keeping our frozen juice cans and making little pillar candles with the leftovers.
  2. OOOh! I like the nature notebook! My wife is gonna teach him how to change the oil on her car tomorrow. He is 8, and is already so independant. I have a few fun things planned, such as making a bird house to help feed the local birds we will be learning about, and we bought him a snap circuts set for christmas that we will incorporate in to sciency lessons. lol Of course we will be keeping up with his language arts(french, specifically) and his reading writing and math. We have online sites for french reading and math, and scolastic is apparently going to have free grade-approp
  3. We are all on spring break right now, well, most of us. But we got word yesterday that all BC schools will be suspended untill further notice, and no one expects that they will reopen again until september. Last year we had to semi-homeschool due to my son having a terrible teacher. He was in a 1/2 split and the teacher taught to the lower grades more, and his reading suffered. We have him practicing math and reading daily since about november of last year and we will continue that. Its the rest of the stuff that they normally learn, science, social studies, writing and so on. He wants t
  4. Thanks to the covid-19, Canadian schools are closed for the remainder of the year. We are faced with not only homeschooling out 8 year old, but also homeschooling him in FRENCH! now, I speak it but my wife doesnt so much of the language arts will be up to me to teach. The thing is,I was homeschooled, but very poorly. Most of what I know was self taught through my love of reading pretty much anything i could get my grubby lil hands on. kids books, youth, novels, encyclopedias, you name it, if it was in my house or church library, I would read it. So, We will be r
  5. It requires a lot of creativity!!
  6. I was given this neat survival game, and it gives a scenario, and you get 3 random items. You have to explain how those items will help you survive the random scenario. Gets the kids thinking of alternate uses for everyday items! We will be playing it for the first time with the kids tonight. It's called 3 things
  7. It's so good to see so many of you still here!
  8. I've been well! A lot of changes in life, good ones! I take don't know when I here last though, so i don't know what the last update on my life would have been. Lol
  9. All this pandemic talk/panic in the media got me missing the amazing ladies i met here oh so long ago. Who's still here that remembers me?

  12. We're very well! I miss you guys around canning season every year though...lol I'm gonna have get used to the new faces/name around here! I'll probably post a big update later on my night shift.
  13. I still make this every year, in 3kg batches. I've changed the recipe some... I use dry white wine, i replaced the oregano with cilantro and the crushed chillies i replaced with whole fresh hot peppers, and no picking spice. I also add chunks of onion to reach jar. Happy 10 years of pickled garlic!!!
  14. I have recieved several, and mine were shipped late! (sorry!) Figured I should check in and let everyone know I'm not lost! That cocoa and tea was perfect there was a snow storm and at work that night and they kept me warm! (I work in an office answering phones graveyard shift)
  15. I love this idea especially since i have wasteful children/step children(we are working on that) and I have a lot of soap allergies!
  16. I am very fortunate to have found a man who has an almost full set of cast iron cookware. AND he uses it! Also, he can cook, survival and being outdoors in important to him. Can you say husband material?
  17. Anyone had a chance to use one of these yet? We are thinking of getting one for back packing. We already have a jetboil, but the fuel is expensive and extra weight.
  18. a belated thank you to all for the birthday wishes! <3
  19. Dang Missed it! Next year I am in for sure! I miss doing all these wonderful exchanges! I am looking forward to seeing what everyone makes!
  20. well, if anyone tries this, please let us all know! I wonder why copper nails would kill a stump, but save the tomatoes?
  21. Has anyone tried this before?? does it really work? Years ago, my tomatoes got blight, but I wasn't able to stop the spread and it ruined all my plants. http://www.waldeneffect.org/blog/Fighting_tomato_blight_with_pennies__63__/ edited to add the link! haha
  22. I am making lentil, bean and tomato soup with rye sourdough toast on the side.
