Welcome to I hope you enjoy my blog. I have links to the books I have written posted here. Along with a few family history links. I have projects we have done and are doing. Some ideas on food storage recipes and other hints. Along with our homestead chatter and crafts.
The weather has been pretty nice this week as far as temps go, high 30's with nights into the 20's. Not bad for late November.
Thanksgiving went well we had 17 here including those already living here.

How is everyone doing as far as Food storage, first aid supplies and so forth? There may be a few sales at this time of year not only on different foods, but on warm clothing, socks, boots, mittens and so forth.
Try not to run to low on things like shampoo and hair rinse. Soap is okay and can be used for your hair but its hard to replace shampoo and a good hair rinse, I know I'm spoiled. I can do without those but they sure are nice to have.
Powder can replace deodorant sometimes but not always, but is a good back up.
Stir together some baking soda, powder and powdered herb of choice and apply under arms while damp.
How about cleaning supplies and for laundry, vinegar and baking soda are great for helping to keep clothes fresh when added to wash or rinse. I buy the big bags of baking soda and use in laundry and in making bath soaks. Baking soda has so many uses.
Don't forget those bug sprays for summer.
