I’ve been feeling at wit’s end as everyday it seems things are going from bad to worse. Today is abosolutly gorgeous spring day and I have been getting things done. The windows are open and the house is airing out a bit. Water barrel is in it’s spot, slowly getting filled and the little solar oven is out collecting some rays.

I reflect how fortunate I am from God’s blessing. My disease nearly killed me but it may end up saving my life in the long run as it gave me the motivation to get prepared. I got started early when prices were lower, that helped me stretch my budget and gave me more time to learn new things/ways of doing everyday. All of my internet buddies survive the storms and no problems, but did see a couple of short comings. Such as quality of radio and minor things. So many of my blessings have come from misfortune or bad luck as others may say.

Today I wanted to get my Greenhouse but Big Lot’s sold out before I got there and I was a little bummed but I did get a great price on six cans of wet dog food, a six pack of paper towels, 2 bags of femine napkins and some money leftover. So it wasn’t a bust and all of those items are needed. I’m getting a good stash of paper/hygeine products stored, plus the paper products are good multi-taskers. Besides it maybe better I have a little cash on hand rather than a green house. There will be other sales I have found this to be very true and while I may not get the same deal again.  I’ll find a way to make it work.

My greatest gift in this little adventure of mine has been God’s help to give me what I need not what I want!  So buckleup buttercup it’s going to be a wild ride and we may not survive it. Being bored will not be one of our problems!

    I didn’t hear about the green house sale, but it would definitely be a good thing to have. Glad that your weather is nice–ours is ok today but it sure was windy and dumped some snow on us last week…

    Marie, The greenhouse is in Big Lot’s Spring/summer catalog for $69.00. Hopefully they get some more in and I’ll get a coupon or another card discount so I’m some what confident I’ll get one this year if not this Spring.
    Idaho weather is acting like Sybil with multiple personality disorder.
