Brought home another dozen GASONE 8 ounce bottles of butane for my small one burner camping stove.

Have over 200 cans now, it is amazing how things add up over time.

One 20 gal and one 50 gal stainless steel pots with lids. The big one will be a big improvement for turkey scalding and plucking.

Just finished catching roosters off the roost to butcher tomorrow. Lost count but there is between 28 and 30, all destined for the canner. Also got a head count on my pullets. 42 which is pretty close to my target of 50.

More carering and housework.

I found another good organisational video on YT by Andrew Mellen:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-nMD...ure=plpp_video

I liked his common sense approach so got his book on Kindle and I have begun to work through it. I really like the fact his thought of putting the book on digital format so we don't clutter up the home with even more books.


I got up at 5.30 today got to fit in a short dog walk at dawn, it was just glorious with birds singing, little traffic, pure bliss. I then did a meditation to help me relax my muscles down and bring me focus.

I've started to declutter the kitchen. Some of the stuff in the drawers I just have no clue what it is, plus I found rusty scewers that can go unless someone can think of a good reason why I should keep them - maybe tent pegs!

The carering is definately helping with increasing physical fitness. It is also nice to get advice from the professionals on how to arrange a room, and what equipment/supplies I need (see thread on it under the health section, entitled Medical Room Set Up).

Put away more food from the case lot sales. Added two former bookcases to the storage room. I now have shelves right by the door for food that is short term storage or on this week's menu. My boys helped their dad clean out the garage so we can put the cars back in. During the summer, my husband sets up a temporary workbench space for summer projects. But, summer is over, school is starting (he's a teacher) and the garage is back to being a garage.

Cleaned out sewing cabinet, organized sewing stuff so I can finally find what I need when I need it.

Made it to the range today and fired another 50 rounds through my carry pistol. I managed to get a sub 3-inch group at 7 yards. Not bad for a novice shooter learning on his own.

Took a rifle to the range, it was raining which makes it more fun. Shooting at heavy metal targets at 100 yards and timed the shots to catch the target as it swung backward each time to increase the target's backwards momentum. Fun stuff.


... and just got back from a run with the dog, I think she is less tired than I am...

Just vehicle maintenance, and planted the rest of the available fence posts. Dug out my property 'plat', used it to compute how many posts (cost) remain to be set...
