Food Storage: A Day of Preparedness

Saturday was a day of preparedness at our house. We hadn’t planned it that way, but I woke up Saturday morning with some apparently extra energy. 🙂 I went for a nice brisk walk while the family was still snoozing away, did some weeding in the yard, and then the kids were up and running. So we ate a hearty breakfast (Hubby made some strawberry pancakes- yum!) and then we went to work! We planted three of our fruit trees (two lemon, one orange) that were in pots and haven’t been doing very well (in hopes that we can nurture them better in the ground and get them to grow better), did some work on the truck, planted lettuce and spinach in our garden, and then we canned a bunch of chicken. Woo wee!

By the end of the day we were sore and tired. But it was a good sore and tired. 🙂 I have a feeling that based on the current state of the nation/world, we’ll be doing something similar to this on a regular basis. But that’s just fine. As my dad always says, “A little hard work never hurt anybody.” Or was that my mom? Anyway, it was wonderful to spend some good time together as family and work towards putting our home in order and getting our family a little more self-sufficient.

Take some time to be with your family in working toward your preparedness goals. It’s so much more fun when you can get everyone in on the action! Not to mention it makes the work go a lot faster too! 😀
Enjoy your time!
