Life Is Busy

                                        Good evening Everyone
I know you haven't heard from me in a while so I'm going to just fill you in on what I've been up to.

First: We bought a camp on a lake, I'm planning to have some pictures to post later, anyway the camp is a little bit of a fixer upper. So our weekends have been spent working on the camp because as soon as all this snow is gone I plan to be working on the outside. I've been mapping out in my head the flower beds, herbs, and a few veg.  It's only a 45 min. drive from our house so it's not unusual for my husband to sit down at 8:00 in the evening and say lets head to camp for the night, you don't have to ask me twice it usually takes me about 10 minutes to get ready. We are really enjoying our new camp.

Second thing that has been keeping me busy are my grandparents, they now need 24 hour care so between staying with them, cooking meals and running to Dr. appointments my life has been pretty busy.

Not only have I been slipping on my blog but my food storage has dropped way down. We have been eating out of it all winter plus I've been preparing a lot of meals for my grandparents from my own storage. So that is what I need to work on. I did purchase 25lbs of sugar a couple of weeks ago. I think by the looks of my flour bin that will be my next purchase. Then I will start watching the local sales flyers. When pasta is on sale 10 for $10 I will be buying ten. I will make a few purchases like this until I'm stocked back up. My meat is holding out but considering I started the winter with half a pig, 1/4 of a cow and 11 turkeys we have really made a dent in it.

I don't know about you but I am so looking forward to spring and getting my gardens started, but when I look out my window and see all the snow, I guess I'll just throw another log on the fire and save my day dreaming for another day.

Well ladies I need to end my post for today as I'm headed to our local food pantry to volunteer this evening.

    you are such a busy girl! Always doing for everyone else! Call me for help, anytime! I can cook a meal or two whenever you need them.
    I love your blogs, so hopefully you'll be able to find a few minutes here and there to write a few words.

  2. I think my sunflower is pretty cute(smile)
    I will not argue with you on the busy part. when ever I get to go home maybe I'll finish making my marmalade and get it posted.
