Miscellaneous Thoughts #2

So....I am having random thoughts again. Feel free to laugh or shake your head. That is what I do when this happens!

Can the Iowa Caucus be over yet? I know that this is important, but for the life of me I can not get excited over it. That and I find myself leaning towards supporting Newt Gingrich instead of Ron Paul. That alone is disturbing. At least both men are leading fairly positive campaigns so far. But I know in my common sense that Ron Paul is the better candidate so I am sticking with him.

I am becoming immune to Christmas.

For the life of me, I can not get excited about Christmas. The reason for the season? Yes I love that. The madness of the season? No I don't have any love for that.

Some day I will have time to make homemade gifts. Maybe yet this year. I have five days left after all.

December has been busy bordering on madness. I don't see our next year improving from this so I see some changes coming in the new year.

The chore chart for the kids needs revising. I am dreading this. Just not sure what chores I want to assign to who. 

I was able to plant garlic on December 18th while living in Iowa. I do see something wrong with this, but I am still very grateful I was able to. I needed an extension. Who knows? Maybe I will still have time to cut down the raspberry canes yet. 

I do have my garden goals done for the next year! I will be posting those soon!

I have not bought a loaf of bread from the store for over two months. Yeah for homemade bread!

I need to figure out the difference between laziness and the need to rest. I think that I confuse the two and this will be something for me to figure out. 

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!


  1. I love your random thought as they make me feel more normal about my own. You are a wonderful woman !

10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month

As crazy as it seems, some people make prepping harder than it has to be. Learning skills can be hard, but the end rewards are so worth it. The work can be hard, but the pay off is that jobs get done and you have accomplished something for the future. However...preppers still need stuff. We can produce a lot of our own things and survive just fine. We still need the items that will make survival easier now and, heaven forbid, if anything bad happens. We need things to keep our lifestyle simpler and easier if something happens. Over the eight years or so that I have been prepping, I have some things that I buy almost every month. Some months when the budget is tight, I might not purchase any of these. Then I appreciate having these things on hand! Below is my list of things I buy every month. I don't make one big trip and buy all these things in one trip. I add them to my cart at the grocery store, department store, online shopping, and whatnot. I spend a little bit every s

10 Non-Perishable Food Preps You Should Be Buying Every Month

New preppers wonder what they should be buying for their preps every month. More experienced preppers wonder what holes they should be plugging in their food storage to be better prepared. We all know we should be constantly adding and rotating our food storage every month in order to have a good supply. Since I have written the 10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month  and Top Ten Items You Need For Your Food Storage , I have found my preparedness mindset changing a little bit. I think they are things you should be buying every month that are perishable items and non-perishable items. This list will concentrate on the non-perishable items because those are the ones most important to your food storage. To explain what I have included on this list, I will give you the criteria. I am making this list as basic as possible. Meaning that you can go to the grocery store and buy these items right off the shelf which means the items are shelf-stable. They will not expire o
