Picked up another propane tank for the generator.

California, where they make electricity from the wind, and turn it off when the wind blows too hard.

✿ REMOVABLE HOOK High lumen LED camping lamp designed with a removable hook which can be attached to both sides of the lantern for your convenience. They also allow for multifunctional use: you can hang it from a tent, carry it with you, or stand it on a flat surface, the ground or a table. Powered by 3 x AAA Alkaline batteries (included).
✿ MULTIFUNCTIONAL LANTERN The lightweight build of the lantern and the 360 degree light emitting design makes it easy take the light along with you. Perfect for camping, hiking, night walking, indoor use, and can also be used for emergency events such as hurricane, snow storm or power outage.

And if you're just starting out and haven't diversified your preps yet, pouring something like beef stew over rice will break up the monotony of eating rice and beans so often.

I also keep sardines and smoked oysters because they're so tasty...even if my wife says they stink!
Fortunately, in addition to stored olive oil, lard, butter, etc., I have my own re-supply setup. Fats from chickens, turkeys, ducks, etc. when I butcher them; milk supplying livestock (cattle and goats) providing milk fat (cheeses, yogurt, sour cream, and butter), and tallow from when one of the cattle is slaughtered. Once I get my pigs, I'll have lard, as well. In addition, olive trees provide not only the olives, but the olives can be crushed to extract olive oil.

Fats and oils resupply solved.

More movies eventually bound for our BOL refuge.
Long snow-bound winters require multiple forms of entertainment.

Charging the jump start battery packs. they ran my DVD player so I could watch movies. didn't start the generator as power was only out for a day and a half.

Love and slightly jealous you have your own olives. Can you also grow avocados?

Some definite classics in that batch. Especially like "Paint Your Wagon." About the only movie I've seen where Clint Eastwood sings.

Depends on the variety, although they do MUCH better if you grow them in a greenhouse.

We DO sometimes get sub-freezing temps (down to the low teens) here. In fact, Wednesday night/Thursday AM it's forecasted to get down to 24 I'll have to make sure the heat tape and heat lamp are turned on in the wellhouse that evening.

Olive trees don't seem to be as bothered when it gets that cold. Arbequinas seem to do particularly well here (that's the variety I have, although I'm thinking of getting a couple of other varieties, as well.

Well did my first biscuit and butt joins with woodworking. When the wood isn’t thick enough for a biscuit or dowel type join you use a butt join. The butt join was five individual thin pieces of wood destined to be one of the sides of a cabinet I am making. The two boards that are biscuit joined will be the shelf. I have completed the two sides, and the back panels and the top, shelf and bottom for the cabinet along with rough cutting the legs and frame.
