Today was a light day:

A few cans of Evaporated Milk
A container of Coconut Oil



The extra space in the house is slowly disappearing. So, we're working on getting rid of non-essential items.

After getting the oil changed in my husband's car, got one each of lemon, lime, and grapefruit trees (to go with the mandarin and navel orange trees I already had.) Also put pipe insulation around the feeder pipe for the sprinkler system.

I refilled all available prescriptions at the VA hospital pharmacy. I asked the pharmacist if it is true that all hospitals keep only a 2 day supply of meds on hand. She said, "It's true, with our most common meds we only keep a two day supply."

Keep that 2 day time limit in mind should the trucks stop rolling.

That's why I always get my prescriptions filled at the earliest available time...doing that, I've been able to build up a 4-5 month "hedge" for all my prescriptions.

I have been preping for a while now.

Here is what I did this week.

Bought 2 rabbit cages (going to build 3 more and start raising some rabbits)
Changed water supply. (41 two liter bottles so far)
Made rope braided sling for shotgun (need to finish 2 more for rifles)
Talked wife into doing a garden in the back yard this spring and started mapping out when stuff will go. Plan is to have beds built before spring.
Cleaned out garage and organized all camping gear.
And got appointment for selling plasma next week. Going to do that twice a week and all money goes toward supplies.

As it was on sale picked up some cans of turkey gravy to put away.
We make fresh with the meals, but to pour over rice or pasta it will do in a pinch.

Got my deer hunting tag and 2 doe permits. If I'm lucky will have at least 3 deer to can. Also am evaluating the kippered herring selection. So far like "crown prince" the best. Will start stocking that away. Also deviled ham in a can.

(side note) recently found some canned deer meat marked 2001. Did not eat but saw dogs eating it in the field where I dumped it. Did not attempt to try it as back then I was still "hot water bath" proccessing it.....not in a pressure canner. (did not know any better)

More leaves!! I've gotten over 100 bags so far. Once you mow them up though, they don't look like that many!

This morning I worked out in the garden a bit - I mowed next to it and put a layer of wet cardboard over it and covered that with leaves. I want to see how well that works at killing all the grass there over the winter. If it that works well, the garden will be more than twice the size it was this year.

My mom told me one of her neighbors had a bunch of leaves out yesterday, so I headed out later to get them, only to stop someplace else on the way and filled the car up with leaves. So I put all my mom's neighbor's leaves on the side of my mom's house. I stopped tonight to pick some of them up and there were almost twice as many bags there - my mom said another neighbor had seen me moving them all and asked her if I wanted his, too.


If I keep getting more bags, I think I might start putting them out in the woods a bit (so they're not an eyesore) and then come next spring/summer I could use them as mulch.

Default Quart Paintcan Alcohol Heater

i stopped off at Lowes HI store for a quart paint can/lid, a quart of denatured alcohol and boosted a roll of TP from the stash....cost is 10.00..

I'm heading out for a little overnighter this weekend in the NC mountains..I'm going to pitch a lean to from a tarp, misc kit i keep in the car...

I will have my big agnes bag and milspec bivvy sack..

the temps are to be in the 30's or lower, so i thought i'd try a mini alcohol heater, see how that works...

i will take before and after temp readings....

Gonna do some fly fishing on Helton Crk too....

Also going to use the Volcano Grill...can you say Ribeye....
