Monday Message

"Our Heavenly Father created this beautiful earth, with all its abundance, for our benefit and use. His purpose is to provide for our needs as we walk in faith and obedience. He has lovingly commanded us to ‘prepare every needful thing’ (see D&C 109:8) so that, should adversity come, we may care for ourselves and our neighbors, and support bishops as they care for others." (All is Safely Gathered In pamphlet)

It sure seems like we are all in turmoil, weather is broken here, we keep getting severe weather and worse is hitting elsewhere. Having storage on hand makes it easier and faster to help others in these hard times.

It has been hard back-breaking work but I planted the strawberries and put a cover over to keep out the critters. I planted four apple trees and have gifted others. I have planted the seedlings I had started so, live or die, they are in ground. I will work with what I get.

I made up jam from the last of my raspberries and peaches I froze last year. So peach raspberry jam. 

I used some milk that needed to be used to make two quarts of yogurt and cream cuts. Someone wanted to see what they looked like...

It is like buttery pie crust on bottom and on top, the pudding in the middle is like a rich French pudding and is topped off with almond icing. Get the recipe HERE.

My husband's mom made this for us when we came in from a snowmobile date all cold. This was so good.

Because I store the basics in my storage, I had everything on hand to make it.

As you get your groceries or stop in at the store, pick up a few basics that you can tuck away like salt, baking soda, baking powder, flour, yeast, sugar, shortening...little by little it will add up.

Stick some seeds in pots if you can't garden. Every little bit helps.

I rearranged the watercolor table...it is a bit more balanced. I am tired of moving things about though so enough of that for now.

How are you coming on learning a skill? I know it is hard to find the time. Spread it out to fit your schedule. Break each part down. For example, if you got a machine and you want to make a t-shirt... Step one - learn different things about your machine. Step two - find the pattern and fabric (this might be using an adult size one to repurpose to learn on). Next step could be study the directions for pattern.

Just break things down. Plus, if you find your machine is skipping stitches on knit fabric, you need to use a ball needle.

I would throw into this next step to watch some podcasts and sew some swatches to understand your machine.

We don't need to do it all in one go. Take a learn as you go approach.

Missy says that you will get things done, don't heap too much on your to-do list, enjoy the things you do as well.

Tippy Longstockings says remember to be kind in all you do.
