"Let us be in a position so we are able to not only feed ourselves through the home production and storage, but others as well." (President Ezra Taft Benson)
Right now we all need to pull together to help each other more than ever.
It looks like we will be at war with this virus for a while yet. So we need to do our part to keep ourselves and others safe. I know it is so very hard but we can do hard things, right?
We need to keep praying for all that are suffering with it or affected in any way by it. And for the healthcare workers. And do this for all around the world.

We need - let me say that again - WE NEED to find fun at home...a lot of us have been staying in our homes now for a year.
Add to that we are in winter where I live. So I feel we need to find fun! As we know that we have extra work to do so we will need to make time for fun things to enjoy. I think I could and have moved from room to room and something needs doing, we could do that all day every day noticing this needs doing or that and you are tired by the end of the day, too tired to have some fun. This has a wearing effect. We need to find fun things to recharge our personal batteries.
I watch a podcast… Craft House Magic - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCY2WS1_3gA33Z_PJZX3qKCA This gal is in the UK, she makes these beautiful project bags. Alas, purchasing one and having it shipped to me in the US is not in my budget at all but when watching her before Christmas she was showing herself making a bag, I then heard her say if you want to make your own you could purchase the pattern, so that was affordable and I did.
Sometimes reading is what relaxes us - www.freeread.com I have mentioned this site before but free fits my budget very well. There’s children's books, cookbooks, I like mysteries, knitting, canning, dehydrating, sewing books - these are just a few that I get but there are so many. They put up pages and pages and pages with different ones each day. I know I sound like a commercial for them but with everyone's budgets so threadbare right now free is good. They are ebooks to read on your devices, I have even noticed books that can help you with homeschooling.
In the last Monday Message I gave you a site with a video to do a no-knead bread and I thought you would like to see what I made from the video. Yum! I made one loaf of bread and two hard rolls. This was yummy so go back to last week's Monday Message and watch that and give it a try.
The main thing is to work on something fun everyday to recharge.
Work on exercise as well. Gus decided he is not a fan of the treadmill, he wasn't hurt but having the ground move beneath his feet was not for him.
If you like to knit Missy says she can take over your knitting bag as well...
Gus and Missy both say now is the perfect time for taking up synchronized napping!
