I love it at the lake, I can do water aerobics everyday (if the weather cooperates) and it is just a different lifestyle up here. emoticon

I am so sorry that I missed the messages.

Wedding season has us so busy that I can hardly sit down. But, we are at the lake now....it is so nice up here, even with the rain. It is nice to be at the lake.

How are you doing? Is work busy?

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I have noticed now about the new look....not too fond of it, but maybe it will grow on me.

I bet your snow is gone now, haha

I watched a show the other day about Northern MI mushrooms. Very interesting.

Lots of tornadoes down south. :( Good to have a plan where to go and an emergency kit. :) I think, for me, the safest place would probably be the little closet near the center of the house downstairs.

We had 12 1/2 consecutive days of "can till can't" weather. That's when it's warm enough and nice enough to work outside from can see till can't see. Rains came Saturday afternoon, and I hit my recliner with a book. I have the bulk of my Spring repairs done, still have some chores (who doesn't) that need tending to, and I'm knocking them off the list one at a time.

Spring arrived in NE TX and I'm sending it North to those of you up there, but I'm still not putting out any plants till the Monday after Easter, we always have a cold snap, or at least a flood.

I remember temps like that, it's like you can actually feel your bone marrow freezing. We had a low of 20 high of almost 60 and a low tonight like last night with rain tomorrow, and 70 Saturday. Tell me Mother Nature ain't a woman-someone give her some chocolate!!!!

Temps dropped again, we went from mid 70's Sat & Sun, WITH sun, and low to mid 60's, withOUT sun, Monday and today. That 10 degrees makes a huge difference. My home made cough syrup and herbal remedies supplies are getting dangerously low, time to take inventory and get that refilled.

On windy day's I can't help but think of Winnie the Pooh and poor Piglet flying along with an umbrella, holding on for dear life, saying "Oh Bother", I think he called it a Blustery Day. I wonder what else in life do we hold on to for dear life when we would just be better off in the long run to let go, pick ourselves up, brush off the dirt, and get on with life.

I picked a couple of "DaffyDills" today here in NE TX. I'm so glad it's not raining, if I opened an umbrella I'd end up in west Texas. If this is any indication of March coming in like a Lion I'll be spending every warm day between now and then putting up anything and everything that could become a UFO and do some damage.

emoticon Howdy! To everyone on the team!

This weekend I'm going to continue working on my First- Aid bug out bag.So far, it is coming out really great, better than I had anticipated.… Seems as though I just needed a larger bag! Oh well, "live and learn" as they say (LOL)! At a garage sale we stopped at, I found some heavy metaled containers with lids and a latch lock that were about 12 inches long that are becoming just perfect for matches.I was looking for something like that.They were a great price and I'm very pleased with them.

I hope everyone is planning on having a good day today and an even grander and more glorious weekend ahead!

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

Hugs, emoticon

..and not get your gas get too low, which I am guilty of because of finances. lol


Made my first paracord "survival bracelet". Waiting for some buckles with built in whistles. Just something else to play with. lol You can wear them camping, hiking etc. and, if you need to, pull it apart and have cordage to use. emoticon

Being cold is supposed to burn calories. lol

This situation in Georgia right now is a good example of, no matter where you live and what the weather is like, it's good to have emergency supplies in your car!

emoticon emoticon Good morning fellow Prepper's!

Last night I did not watch the weather forecast for this upcoming week but when I woke up this morning, our Whether Bug registered 52° and then I realized it said wind gusts to 25 mph and now we're dropping into the 20' s before nightfall.What a change this Texas weather can give us! We don't have any snow or I would also send some to you Mia! emoticon

My shopping/reorganizing of my supplies is going good and I'll be working on our medications today and combining all our prescriptions so we'll have extras on hand.I've been thinking about keeping warm in all of this temperature change coming up and I would like to share this thought with you if you don't mind:

"Keep a warm heart… Heat burns calories!"

I hope everyone has a good day and a good week.

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

Thank you so much any snow would be appreciated.

there is a town at the bottom of Folsom reservoir that has been exposed for the first time in 5. years. My friend took her mother in law and she gave them a tour because she actually remembered before they built the Dam.

Sorry about the drought in Cali. I guess Lilly and I could box up some of this snow we have and overnight it to Cali. We all would be better if we could share. I would like to send these fridged temps somewhere else too, how about you Lilly I bet you have not even gotten up to zero in days. We are at 22 today so that it can dump a bunch of snow on us today and then temps drop again.

Our driveway is drifted shut...yea, no drive by snoopers at the Inn.

If we don't get rain before summer, our part of middle California will be a dessert.
Well it is and the snow normally solves that as it melts all summer long and rushes down the mountains and fills up the reservoirs. But no snow, no rain, no filling, no lawn.

emoticon Howdy everyone!

This weekend begins me "checking expiration dates" on all of my stashes.It takes me a while to complete it, one by one, but the end result turns out good and is very necessary.I'm a going to continue working on my first aid bug -out bag and be sure all of that is up-to-date also.

It is 19° here at my house in the DFW area of Texas.I sure can't hardly wait until springtime gets here and I know the rest of you are the same as me! I love to see the flowers and green grass and it just kind of makes me feel all "buggy" inside.I get more creative in my prepping than I do at other times of the year.

I hope all of you are planning on having a good Friday today and the upcoming weekend.I'm going to keep this thought in mind:

"Let's keep our spirits soaring and our goals in sight!"
(© Paula's Thoughts)

I have a lot to do now, so I better stop and get to it.

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

Burrr tired of all the below zero temperatures. I hope I don't ever have to "survive" without heat in this stuff! lol
I have tomorrow off and it's supposed to be a teensy bit warmer, so I'll go use the snowblower and get caught up on that tomorrow when I have the day off. :)

I'm still exhausted from the tournament this weekend. My calves are starting to scream about all the stairs I did there. The school had this really neat little circuit of staircases and landings that connected the different levels of the building with the cafeteria. 128 stairs per circuit. I lost count after 10 circuits. I did about 30 minutes non-stop during the lunch break. Wish our school had a set up like that. It was a great work out.

My husband got to work an extra shift, so we used part of that money to make a "bug-out" supply run. I bought paper products and some canned items, in particular, canned fruits. I read on the previous posts about the drought in California and decided to stock up as was discussed.

I hope all of you have a grand and glorious Sunday and an exciting week ahead.

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

Paula

Wish I could send you my kumquats and tangerines, too many to use.
I will juice the rest this week but hardly any more room in the freezer.

Oh no, she's gone. I know it's just a chicken, but it still gets to me, I should have made sure the door would not get blown over.

The sun is out today, so I opened up the goat yard to the chickens, goats are out in our "pasture" (aprox 1/3 of our 1 acre). I've been needed the door that separates the goat yard and chicken yard hung, right now I move it to the side, then secure it back. I didn't move it far enough to the right and the wind caught it, and it landed on one of my 3 Rhode Island Reds. She is the only RIR laying right now, just her and my Buff, Lucy. I'm so upset with myself, we are hoping to start incubating as soon as we get a spot cleared in the office for the incubators (husbands job) so we can have layers by Aug. I had to borrow a shovel from the neighbor because my husband needed MY shovels for his job, and my son broke it. It's tough preparing for what ever may come your way when you are the only one actually doing the work, and the only one willing to roll up your sleeves and get dirty. I'm sorry I just needed to vent a bit, my husband supports the being prepared effort, but makes it hard (doesn't see the point in getting up early and getting the gardening, milking, and other chores done by 9AM in Texas, but then he doesn't do the gardening or other chores either) and I rarely have the tools I need to do the job that needs done. Thanks for letting me vent, I'm just upset about my chicken, I had just gotten the ducks separated from them and had happy chickens again, the male duck terrorized my girls, and they were getting excited to see me again.

I must be burning extra calories with all the shivering I'm doing. 8* outside and no heat in my classroom yesterday or today...they are supposedly getting it fixed. Hard for my students to concentrate when they're wearing their jackets and still cold. Had some extra time because last night's wrestling matches didn't start on time, so I ran steps on the bleachers for 20 minutes. Thought my calves would be sore today, but they really aren't bad. Matches ended so late there was no place open, and I didn't feel like cooking at midnight, so I just went to bed without supper. Certainly didn't hurt me any. Thought I'd be starved this morning, but I wasn't. Just sleepy.
