It's Chilly Down Here!

This weather is greatly welcomed after the hot summer we have had.  It makes me think of soup, hot chocolate, cinnamon and allspice.  It also makes me think how thankful I am that we are almost out of hurricane season.   I have a mental list of all the things to accomplish before it gets too cold out.  Trees and shrubs have already been trimmed and need a dose of fertilizer.  Sweet potatoes are doing well, everything else-- not so well, so I need to make notes in my garden book.  Greenhouse needs to be cleaned out and winterized.  Winter clothes and food supply need to be beefed up a little bit.   
I'm also excited because soon I get deer meat!  Yep, it's that time of year again and you have to hear about it.  That means making more freezer room but I will do it gladly and maybe do a happy dance while I'm doing it.  I got caught short on ground deer last year but it's not going to happen this year.  I was a little put out because I thought that I would be losing my new, much larger garden plot but it looks like I will have it a while longer.  How are your plans coming along?

Some of the blogs have gone quiet lately.  Wolverine has talked about this on the main AP blog.  Maybe some people have moved on, or more people have gravitated to the message boards.  I have a hard time keeping up with the message boards but I try on occasion.  I don't post as much because I feel I'm repeating the same thing over and over again.  I haven't given up on prepping, I'm still chugging along.   I think it takes a lot for a prepper to come out and blog because it takes away some of your anonymity.   With the clown parade that is going on for the presidency (current office holder included), it's hard to stay optimistic.   A friend of mine wrote on his blog that he had to put his war in perspective.  That struck a cord with me, after thinking about it a bit, I figure as long as I continue to hold on to my basic theory to take care of my and mine, I have my war in perspective and can remain optimistic.  I'll be around, y'all have a nice day.

I hear ya on the saying the same thing over and over again.I feel the same way too from time to time.But the newbies need luv 2. Plus the fact that we have to deal with life's problems has been getting in my way of keeping up the blogsite.But it sure beats talking about how we got our butt's kicked from the next storm that comes our way,and we don't want to get complacent do we....keep up the good work
