Monday Message

"Today, I emphasize a most basic principle: home production and storage. Have you ever paused to realize what would happen to your community or nation if transportation were paralyzed or if we had a war or depression? How would you and your neighbors obtain food? How long would the corner grocery store—or supermarket—sustain the needs of the community?" (President Ezra Taft Benson)

I think we have seen this last year just what can happen. Even still, we have a limit of one package of toilet paper...incredible.

We need to prepare not just for a localized event but a widespread event like the pandemic was.

Drought conditions are worse than they have been in 1200 years along the west coast, says the news. They said they can tell by rings in trees.

As we watch how bad it is in the drought, you cannot help but think that prices will go up and shortages will happen.

So step up your storage efforts. Assess your storage and see what areas you need to work on.

I walked out to take a picture of the garden and the grass crunches and it is brown but I noticed an area of weeds. They are green and growing fast, how unfair is that?

I water the garden just down by the roots. That said, knowing it is so very dry, I thought I would remind you of a site I love… - read the comments, others make it a great source of frugal ideas.

The day lilies are looking pretty.

I have embroidered on fabric to make a face mask.

I finished a spinning project I have been working on for a while now.

The other project I have been working on is sheep from

I just finished the legs and put on their little shoes, I know the pic looks weird but soon everything will be assembled.

I have drawn another pattern on fabric for another face mask. I am working up these to wear to church even after the virus is gone, I will continue to wear during flu seasons.

Once I am done embroidering, it takes ten minutes to sew up the mask. Sewing is a great skill to have. - this has very helpful information.

Gus says he has skills playing with toys.

Missy says she concurs. They both say thank you for loving them too.


  1. Your spinning and needlework are lovely. Such charming little feet! I always enjoy hearing from your cats. Have a great day.

    1. thank you just wait the sheep are cute and will be appearing soon cats say thank you they are all wise that is what they said not me

  2. Hi Becky,
    Your mask is adorable, so smart to wear it down the road for flu season. I love Gus and Missy, they make me smile! Your day lilies are beautiful!

    1. thank you i am working on another. Our dr said today that we needed to keep going virtual to church says she thinks things will heat up in the fall maybe sooner so i will be making more yet. Day lilies are like weeds they are in the ditches but yes they are pretty thank you

    2. I agree with you and your doctor. Around here, hardly anyone wears a mask, my husband and I wear a mask when out. I hardly go out in public. I think it was too soon to remove the mask mandate.

  3. Due to reading your blog and reminding me to keep stocked up, I went to the store today and re-stocked my over the counter medicines. This is no easy task where I live as most of the stores have very limited stock. I now have about a 3 month supply which is about as good as I can do with the very limited stock out there. I don't use on-line purchasing so I am limited.

  4. I love the bird embroidery! What is the little bee? Since my husband and I are off and on beekeepers, I always notice bees!

    1. it is one in a set of three packaged together at hobby lobby remember last blog i mentioned how to make a needle keep that is what the bee is one is that bee one is honey comb and the other some twig maybe flower they are all in one package very inexpensive they each have a magnet on back and a ribbon covered magnet that holds it in place and it holds the needles for me while i get the thread out there are a whole line of bee things for needlework there i only like non sting bees otherwise i run one time long long ago we were driving with windows down a huge bumble bee went in my window past me i never saw it but stung my husband under the chin and never stopped kept going out his window yikes i like what they do i like their work ethic i will run every time i plant flowers for them but yep run
