Monday Message

(LDS Church Handbook 2, Section 6.1.1)
“Church members are responsible for their own spiritual and temporal well-being.....To help care for themselves and their families, members should build a three-month supply of food that is part of their normal diet. Where local laws and circumstances permit, they should gradually build a longer-term supply of basic foods that will sustain life. They should also store drinking water in case the water supply becomes polluted or disrupted."

Well winter is around the corner. My garden is done so I have already unhooked the rain barrel. If you leave water in the barrel it will freeze and crack your barrel. I have not had an issue with water left in the bottom though but to have more could cause damage as it expands.

Christmas is now on our minds as we are looking at our budgets and thinking how this can possibly be done. 

Be creative, now is the time all those skills can come into play.

Soup is a winter staple and is always best leftover, crusty rolls are great with it.

Sewing... - this has many easy ideas for sewing gifts - very easy tutorial, if you want you could applique on it to enhance - I love this gal, she is very down to earth. These are very cute reversible headbands. this is very cute and will help you with applique infinity scarf, easy to make

Crochet… - very easy face scrubbies there are cute gift ideas

Knitting… lots of basic knitted gift ideas

I think that should get you started.

Now you might want to think of your traditions and the new ones you may want to start.

This is the time I like to have my own mixes on hand: - many useful mixes - this has many mixes on it - more mixes

Once you find the ones you like you can keep your jars filled. - more mixes - more mixes this is very old and neat

So keep working on your storage and living frugally!
