"Preparedness, when properly pursued, is a way of life, not a sudden, spectacular program. We could refer to all the components of personal and family preparedness, not in relation to holocaust or disaster, but in cultivating a life-style that is on a day-to-day basis its own reward." (President Spencer W. Kimball)
We are going back into the heat this week...I am not a fan.
I got a free book on sourdough this week. The recipes looked great but there was no recipe for doing the actual sourdough itself, so I went to my favorite site for doing sourdough. I would have still gone to this site even if there had been a recipe for it in the book. I was just really surprised that a whole book on sourdough recipes would not have the recipe for actually making the sourdough.

I have done this gal's version of sourdough and it always works well (you can see the pic of it at the top). She does a great job of teaching.

This is a great skill to help you stretch your food dollar especially now. Dehydrate your excess garden produce and leftover produce from your groceries.

This week I worked up some cucumbers from the garden.
The gardens all around this year have struggled because of drought conditions but I am making every bit count.
My husband loves a peanut butter and pickle sandwich. I am not brave enough to even try one.

I have still been organizing and deep cleaning. This week I worked in the sewing space...
I think I will really like working in here. With things this way I have a lot more elbow room.
Missy says find a cool place to be, hers is right in front of the fan. She is kind of a fan hog and she doesn't care who knows.
Gus is still fine tuning his skills for catching a skittery cat toy.
