House cleaning is like stringing beads with no knot at the end of the thread.

"Usually the Lord gives us the overall objectives to be accomplished and some guidelines to follow, but he expects us to work out most of the details and methods." -Ezra Taft Benson-

Downed Biker Blogathon

A friend of mine is doing a Downed Biker Blogathon . I'll let you go to the link I provided and read about it. One of the things I worry a bou the most is being a downed "biker", I hope that never happens to me, Russ or any of my children.

Preparedness... why we do it.

I have been trying to come up with a post for a week. I have been so busy doing other things, that even the ones I had in draft I thought were lousy. SO, LDS Preppers wrote a FABULOUS!!!!!   article and I'd like to share it with you. Please go check it out. It is a little long, but a good read!

I have been a member of LDS Preppers for a long time, but I do not write anything there, I glean info and learn. But please go check out this article that someone wrote. Thanks!!!

Free Movie

A friend from another site posted about this, so I thought I would as well. Free summer movie! Regal Entertainment is having a Family Film Festival all summer long. They have a free G and PG movie every Tuesday and Wednesday at 10:00. Oh and this is national. Check the schedule here and select your state. Go and enjoy some free air conditioning!

Summer is here

I have been busy with berries... yup, been canning strawberry jam, and making strawberry freezer jam and freezing strawberries. We'll have more berries coming next week. I won't be cooking anymore berries for jams. I will be making some freezer jam, and freezing berries.

I am  hoping by the end of this week I will have some zucchini ready to pick, and hopefully a couple of onions, some beets, and some chamomile. Today I will be harvesting some oregano and drying it. My little tiny oregano bush overwintered great, and now it huge. I will also be harvesting some sage.

My potatoes are growing, and it's time to add a tire and more dirt. My squashes in the tires don't seem to be doing well, but I'm praying soon there will be a possitive change.

The Linus Project

When Peaches went into the hospital to have her appendix taken out, and was there for a couple days before they took it out, she was given a blanket, a teddy bear, and a pillow case. She loves all three. The blanket was from the Linus Project. When I tried to find out how to donate to the Linus Project, I couldn't find a way to do it. BUT watch this, it will give you some insight, and it brought tears to my eyes.
