When I have time to slow down, I so look forward to just sitting down in front of the computer with a cup of hot tea or coffee and read posts from friends, or shall I say my Blogger Family. I always look forward to hearing about their trials and tribulations. I’ve learned new things about being self reliant/prepping. I’ve picked up tips on gardening, canning, making bread, and the use of certain tools and equipment. I’ve found myself in awe….viewing pictures of their children, dogs, cats and farm animals. I find myself laughing so hard at times with (not at) my blogger friends when they write about the stubborn, independent-minded farm animals; especially when you want the animal to move or go somewhere and the animal has other thoughts. I also feel their pain when dealing with medical issues, financial situations, hardships and death. I also commend you for taking on issues and standing proud for America, the Preppers, and the Farmers.
This weekend, we accomplished very little. First and for most my muscle, Bulldog Man (hubby, the man I love), is down and out with a massive migraine. These migraines have been occurring more often lately. His primary physician has referred him to see a neurologist. So I tried to make Bulldog Man comfortable and I tried to sneak around the house and property without making noise.
This weekend, I purchased a new tomato and green pepper plant with vegetables already growing and multiple flowering buds. I also picked up materials to cover my garden from those pesky little birds. I spent some time outside weeding and then had to come in out of the humidity.
I went through my coupon book and cleaned out all the old coupons and restocked it with new in preparation for the next grocery run which will be sometime real soon. Planned the next two weeks of meals and set aside money for the trip. Then I decided to finish work on our laundry for the week.
Below are some pictures from the weekend. Where did you spend your time for the weekend? In the garden?
