recieved an order of Mylar bags that I had ordered. Worked on cutting up a deer I shot last week. Hope to finish it tomorrow headed back out to the woods 1st of Dec. in hopes to get another. Going to make bunch of Jerky this year. Didnt make much last season and plan on stepping it up. We usually grind up most of the deer as we use a lot of ground meat. Ordered a Sausage stuffer also today. Going to try my hand at making sausage with the deer also.

Bought ten bunches of celery at Aldi to cut up and dehydrate tomorrow. Went looking at wood burners, woo hoo - DH really never wanted one but said we could get one if you-know-who won the election. Found one we sort of like, but need to line up an installer to make sure it will work. We have an old farmhouse and the fireplaces were blocked up years ago, so we need to get one of them unblocked and have the chimney relined or whatever they need to do to make it safe.

Reloaded some .45 colt, and fed my goats. I have forty does that will be having kids in the next few weeks. So I have meat and milk for the forseable future.

Wal-mart has Green Giant Green Beans and Peas in 4-packs for $2. I got 6 packs.

Got a pack of celery to try out in the new dehydrator.

So far this week, I rearranged one of my kitchen cabinets to see what canned goods I had and organized everything. Sunday I made a small trip to Dollar Tree and picked up 3 gallons of water, 2 bottles of cinnamon, a pack of shoe laces of different lengths, a jar of pizza sauce, a box of rotini noodles, and a bag of egg noodles. Today I picked up the shelving unit I ordered last night from Home Depot. This will go a long way with organizing things! I got lucky that a friend stopped by and helped me put it together!

I didn't line up the sights on a Savage model 24, because I don't own any guns. I also don't have a big bruise on my shoulder from trying to regulate the POI of the slugs from the 20ga barrel. X_x

You know it really never looks that way.

Most of the Freeze Dried stuff if you dumped it in a toilet and swished the water around a bit would look just like vomit.

Finished the next Dachshund toy for a Xmas present. Got the fish tank light up and running, it needed total replacement.

Almost finished the pick up in bedroom, it looks pretty neat and tidy as long as you don't open drawers and cupboard doors, so that will be the next thing to tackle. Once the room is finsihed then I can go through what I've stored in my Dad's room and get rid of it.

Did a relaxation video of my dogs photos to music for my MP4, so I can watch that when I'm at hospital appointments etc.

Yesterday I spotted a Mr. Heater Portable Buddy propane heater on the company classifieds, NIB for $40, and grabbed it (more or less half price, depending on where you shop). We already have the Big Buddy, so this is an auxiliary. I feel much better about winter power outages knowing we have secondary heat sources now, as long as the propane holds out.

Picked up some more camping gear (GSI Salt & Pepper shaker, Light my fire Spork). A nice double knife set from Browning, one 2" blade with a full size handle, perfect size for small game. The other one is a 3" blade perfect for medium sized game. Has a nylon sheath and G10 handles for $30 on sale. Also was scoping out some nice Case Knives, just out of my price range right now.

On the skill front I'm practicing some finger weaving. Maybe going to try out some knots later on today.
