"Most of us cannot afford to store a year’s supply of luxury items, but find it more practical to store staples that might keep us from starving in case of emergency." (James E. Faust)
There is so much wisdom in this statement so don't think you need to get luxury items because to me and others a warm loaf of homemade bread seems the most luxurious thing.
So work on those staple items.
Because it is the middle of winter here in Iowa and because my roots come from Norway and I love all things Hygge, when I saw this I knew you would enjoy reading it too...I am a hot cocoa and a kringla sort of gal - https://www.thehouseandhomestead.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/February-Issue.pdf
Because I know you are wondering what they are...
One time our car hit a snow bank and we could not get it out. We went to a nearby farm house and they let us call a tow truck. They gave us hot cocoa and freshly made kringla and she was knitting. I never forgot their kindness.
Here is an update on my skill building...
I finished my last spinning, it is my first attempt at making sock weight yarn.
I have been working a little on the rug loom.
And I have worked more on the floor loom.
How are you coming along building your skills and storage? Here is a link to one of our friends working on some cute crochet and sewing projects - http://elblogdeanacuneo.blogspot.com/
Missy put on her serious face talking about this next bit.
With the Coronavirus spreading it would be good to be able to shelter in place. It means we store things that we need such as food and medicines, like Tylenol and also things like cat litter.
In mine I have cereal and milk things too that I won't have to go to the store to get.
I have stuff to make bread.
I have medicines, I have cat food and cat litter. I think we could shelter in place quite well.
Do the best you can.
I think we all have seen the Coronavirus and how hard it is. When they have to shelter in place they try to get food but there is none to get. My heart goes out to them.
But it very well could be here and we need to pay attention and not procrastinate.
We keep our eye on the news. Gus is keeping an eye on it too.
