Ok, does this Misty Shooter have a blog or anything? You've got me curious now. Smile

PlainFolk, exactly where is their community? I was totally interested the minute they mentioned "no electricity" and by the way they were dressed. I love her videos but I must admit it unnerved me a bit to see her work that knife and fire a gun. I have always been interested and admired the plain people and she seems so friendly and nice.

I don't know if she has a blog Sonshine but I think I do have her e-mail address. PlainFolk could you give me her e-mail just in case I don't have the right one please.

Laughing I know what you mean Sonshine. I spent half the morning on Monday going through her videos on YouTube and was back on there last evening looking for more. I'm addicted.

We have been catching up on homeschool here and not doing much else. We are taking it easy for right now.

I will try to post some more copy cat recipes for Asian food some time this week. If any one wants any copy cat recipes let me know I have several new copy cat cookbooks and can post what you want. From Restraunts to stuff in the store. I will have to go thru my cook books to see if I have any Chinese ones I think I do but I have lots of cookbooks in storage.

For dinner tonight I am making homemade Salisbury steak, fried cabbage and pinto beans.

We got 5.5 inches of rain yesterday afternoon through lunch time today. It's pretty much saturated around our place. Thank goodness we didn't have any bad weather other than thunder and lightning.

I got the tomato plants in the ground yesterday afternoon just as the rain started to fall. I can see them from the back door so they didn't get beat down into the ground. Smile

We've had company most of the day today. My friend, Leaesa came this morning and had coffee with us. She and her family will be leaving for Kansas early Saturday morning.

This afternoon our oldest daughter, Sandi and two of the girls I used to babysit came and ate dinner with us. It's been a nice day.

I can hear the spring peepers singing. It sounds like we have thousands of the little rascals out there. I enjoy listening to them. They remind me that spring is here.

For dinner we had barbecued sausage, baked beans, and potato salad.

I hope you all are feeling better and that you all will have a fantastic Friday!

Today was kind of rough for me. Between the bruised feeling from the injection, the rain and allergies I feel beat up. I'm feeling a bit better tonight though. Joe surprised me. There's a certain type of potatoe chip that is only made in my hometown of Rockford Illinois called Mrs Fishers. I grew up eating them, since my Grandmother use to work there. If there was a potatoe chip expert, I'd be pretty close. Smile These chips are a heart attack waiting to happen. They are greasy and salty and ohhhh so goood! Joe ordered some for me and they came in today. Really lifted my spirits as I indulged in a bit of nostalgia.

Hope you are feeling better this evening Sonshine.

Today was my first day with my new patient and it went very well. I had the feeling this place was miles from me so I left home at 8:08 knowing I had to be there by 9:00. I pulled in the driveway at 8:34. Talk about embarassing. His Mom assured me that it was fine and that it was kind of different to have someone there early let alone on time. He is a very nice young man who has a traumatic brain injury due to an ATV accident. He lives on a fairly large family farm and today he took me out to show me the calves. He is very high functioning for that type of injury.

On the way home I stopped to see my friends Ginny and Joe and ended up staying for dinner. We had a nice time and I am stuffed.

The weather was beautiful today. Fortunately the way this job will work I will have pretty much my afternoons, evenings and week-ends to concentrate on my little homestead.

Tomorrow I'm meeting with a friend who operates a weaving studio and will be discussing me doing some hand spinning and knitting for her. She is trying to set up a local fiber shed - where all the clothing and fiber is produced no more than 150 miles from here. This will be a good thing for people around here because a lot of the folks with sheep just use the wool for compost and mulching their gardens. There are a lot of hand spinners and knitters who could be put to work spinning, weaving and making clothes.

Hope everyone had a good day and enjoy your Friday.

Today we got much needed rain. The only thing that got accomplished today was an argument with our local phone company over the internet and Rebekka and I making a grocery list for hubby. Since my car is messed up again I am going to have to trust him to go to the store since I can not drive his stick shift truck.

For dinner he brought home pizza.

She doesn't have a blog. I guess her Youtube channel is her blog, know what I mean? Her email is mmlrc6@gmail.com. She is in the Lobelville area in Tennessee. I'll freely admit that I'm not nearly as good with a gun or knife as she is, but I'm working hard at learning. If the weather is agreeable tomorrow my dh, son and I are planning to go out to practice shooting at the chirt pit. I would love to get as comfortable with a gun as Misty is.

there was a time when all Americans were like her (at least more like her) than what we see today. I have met men who cannot operate a vehicle with a manual transmission due to the clutch. I also know people who cannot fathom living without government assistance (food stamps, WIC,etc), and cannot get through the day without a trip to the store for something. Sad really, when you think about how now those of us who want to be self sufficient and self reliant are the most minor of minorities.

Thanks PlainFolk. I'll check the address you sent me with the one I have and if it is the same I will e-mail her and tell her how much I enjoy her videos on YouTube.

12acrehome, I couldn't agree with you more. I'm trying to become as sell-sufficient as I possibly can. I have a friend who lives on a piece of property that is in the middle of a state forrest who just uses solar power, has a hand pump to get her water and grows most of their own food. I could handle that just fine. When it comes to guns I've never fired a gun and I'm very timid about having one but I suppose I should just get over the fear and pick up something for protection.

What's really sad to me is you get people like us, that want to renew the old ways of doing things, but there's not many who know how to teach us.

I was telling William how I'd love to live. This was before we married. I'd love to live a mile back in some woods with a little stream running by our cabin so I could gather water to do laundry but have a pump for drinking. I told him no electricity, no phones, etc. He said "I can't live like that. I have to have my television." Now he says that I would want my computer but I truly believe I could live without all these modern conveniences. It would be so peaceful.

Today has been a beautiful sunny day here. I'd planned to work in the garden getting the squash planted but William got up this morning and set a brush pile on fire so I had to stay inside. I was having problems with my breathing when I got up any way. Sure didn't want to be in any smoke.

I've worked in the house today. Got the checkbook up to date (One of my jobs i like least) along with several household chores.

I did go to see the doctor to be evaluated for a sleep study yesterday. Lo and behold an honest doctor....He said he didn't think I needed a sleep study done. From all appearances I might snore some but he didn't think I was having any sleep apnea. I liked him....A lot of doctors would have ordered one just because they could.

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.

MM, I use to tell people I grew up in the wrong era. I'm happiest when there are no electronic gadgets. I have a dishwasher, but prefer washing dishes by hand. I love the way clothes smell after hanging out on the line. I like water that is minus the chemicals. Just seems that when you aren't distracted by tv, computers ect the family draws closer. They actually (gasp) have to talk to one another, or play board games together, or read a book.

Today started out pretty good. We went to Atlanta to pick up some soap/lotion making supplies. Met a lady on Homesteading today that was selling out her stock. She had an Etsy store, but is in nursing school, so doesn't have time to work with it any more. We got a good deal and met a wonderful couple. Then we came home and I was laying down for a bit to give my back a rest when the people that bring us hay show up. They have never taken a penny for the hay because Joe does work on their computers. They always want to see the goats and chickens and enjoyed holding the babies and watching them play together. Then they went around to look at the chickens and something didn't look right. Our chicken coop is right next to our garden area and it looked like there were about 5 or 6 hens in the garden! Sure enough, there was a big hole in the chicken wire. We've been having problems with cats coming around and trying to get into the coop. I guess they finally got the wiring broken through. Fortunately the chickens were all ok and we got them back into the chicken house. Joe got new wiring up where the holes were, but I'm not sure what we're going to do about those cats.

I'm planning on going to Church tomorrow. It'll be the first time in quite awhile and I'm praying my back will handle it ok. I've really missed being around our Church family.

Tonight we had BLT's and chips.

Re: How has your day been and what's for dinner...................

Post by backtotheland on Tue Mar 27, 2012 3:30 am

This week-end got pretty hectic around here. Saturday I had two meetings back to back. One was a spinning guild meeting and I was meeting up with the gal I'm getting the goats from. The next one was a sustanable gardening/energy meeting and I had information on one of the people they want to come and give a discussion. After those two meetings I had to go and take care of my grandson so my daughter could take my granddaughter out for Mommy and daughter time. Sunday I had to work from 10:00 until 2:00 and then I went and got the kids and watched them until 10:30 last night because my daughter had to work (she normally does not work on the week-ends she has the kids. Today I went to work at 9:00 and just spoke with the office and the family wants me there every day. No problem with me because this boy and his family is what the job is all about anyway. I will just have to arrange my schedule a little bit as far as milking goes and it will actually work out better anyway. At least it will be daylight in the morning when I milk. I figure the coyetes will be back in their dens by that time in the morning and not out yet at that time in the evening. The day went absolutely wonderful with this family and I am thoroughly going to enjoy this job.

For dinner tonight, this is the first night I've been home for dinner since last Wednesday, I'm having to make myself a steak, mashed potatoes and a veggie and have fruit for dessert.

I actually had to start up the pellet stove when I got home from work today. The wind is blowing like crazy here and it is cold out. I'm just glad I didn't have any gardening space ready or last week I would have been out there planting things only to have the temperature drop to 20 tonight. I'm going to start my seeds the first week-end in April, which isn't that far away, and will plant them at the end of May or beginning of June. I'm so excited about a garden this year. I watched a wonderful documentary called Back to Eden and it has changed my way of thinking about gardening and I will implement it this year.

Hope everyone is enjoying your Monday.

Today we did school work, then lunch, then a few chores. Then I got the joy of working on my message for Sunday. Smile Can you tell I'm excited? LOL

For supper we'll be having roast, potatoes, carrots and gravy. Joe made a peach cobbler yesterday, so that will be for desert. Smile

We worked on the yard all weekend getting it cleaned up and burning all of the limbs that fell. We got the part for my car but hubby has not put it on yet. I am hoping that it fixes it.

I may be writing for a lady that plans Disney Vacations for her web site. I am still thinking long and hard over taking on responsibility since I just started dyalsis.

My machine that I had for two weeks already had a problem. So they sent me a new machine this morning. They said a difram in it has a hole in it. That was the best customer service I have every had. I was on the phone with them last night for an hour and by 9 in the morning I had a new machine.

For dinner we are having fried cabbage with hamburger, mashed potatoes black eyed peas and corn bread.

Today a miracle happened my car fixed it self. We still have no idea what was wrong with it. We are still changing out the PVC vaulve this weekend.

The boys went fishing today and caught enough fish for a meal. I froze them until we have enough for a fish fry.

For dinner we had chicken pot pie soup and biscuits.

I had a rough day today. Woke up at 4 am in pain. Feeling some better tonight.


For supper we had barbeque sandwiches and macaroni salad.

Tried something new in the kitchen today. I made corn meal mush. I had known how to make it for years, but never tried it. But MistyPrepper did a video about it so I decided to give it a try. It was unbelievably buttery! My husband thought I had put a whole stick of butter in it and was so surprised when I told him there's nothing in there but water and cornmeal, lol. It wasn't the greatest thing in the world but at the same time, I can totally see why people eat it. Perhaps just a little bit of an acquired taste, but I really don't think it would take long at all to become accustomed to it. The leftovers are in the fridge to be sliced and fried tomorrow for breakfast.

It's been so pretty here but the rain is supposed to come back tomorrow. It will be next week before the sun shines again. Phooey

I saw Misty's video on corn meal mush. I've had it once and it wasn't bad at all. She does wonderful videos.

The weather here has turned a little cold again. I actually had to start up the pellet stove the other night. Today it is supposed to be in the 60's so I will probably shut it off but will have to run it again over the week-end, if the weather forecast is right.

Sonshine, someone told me last week I should see if I could get a grant to start up an educational type farm. I e-mailed who I was supposed to and, of course, they don't give grants for that. Of course they don't. The government doesn't want us to be able to take care of ourselves. Another friend suggested that I just run an ad in the local paper and on craigslist.

One of my friends does a blog post for one of the local big box stores about things that can be done with their products and she contacted me last night and they asked her to do something on soap making so she asked me to help her do a video. I, of course, said I would be more than happy to help her out. It seems strange to me that a big box store would want someone to do a video on how to make soap from things they sell in their store, especially since the only things I can get at that store for the soap is the vegetable shortening and olive oil. Oh well, if it will get people fired up on how to do things for themselves I'm all for it.

I hope you are feeling better Sonshine.

Well, today actually started out pretty well, but we had a bit of excitement this afternoon. Joe had gone out to lock up our goats when he noticed our neighbor behind us had a small fire in her yard. He went over to tell her so she could put it out, but she wasn't home. There were no hoses in her yard and ours would not reach the affected area, which was right next to 2 sheds. Now, our neighborhood is full of pine trees and we have been in drought conditions for at least 6 years. It didn't take hardly any time before the sheds were ingulfed. We had called the fire department immediately and began hosing down as far as our hoses would reach. Both sheds are gone, but the firemen did get the fire out. Now, those that know my history may already know, I have a hard time with fires. I think I may have some PTSD. For those not aware of it, my first two kids died in a housefire in 1976. I literally saw my little baby girl catch on fire and burn till she was not recognized as a human being. Anytime I see a house fire, or grass fire, or forest fire, basically any uncontrolled fire I have flashbacks. Right now I'm literally sick to my stomach and wound tight as a clock. Please pray I can sleep without nightmares tonight. Usually fires like this will trigger me reliving the deaths of my kids in my dreams.

One good thing did come out of it though, one of the firemen asked us what kind of goats do we have. We told him and he told us that his wife and him were wanting nigerian dwarf goats. We told him about the babies and that we would be selling them once they are weaned. He picked out a doe and a buck and said they may take two bucks. So, we managed to sell at least 2 of the babies. We already had one promised to a neighbor. That leaves me with one doeling and 2 or three bucklings, depending on how many they will buy.

For supper I had Ty cook and he made burritos.

Working on the compost pile today but still banging my head up aginst the wall about the animals getting in it.

I had an off day. I just felt strange today. I think I took off to much fluid last night so I am using a lighter dyalsis fluid tonight to see if that helps.

Still looking for more land but it is expensive around here and we can not find what we are looking for. It just may take a little time.

Wesley is working on his penny drive to save the sea turtles for his May beach trip. He is also planting trees to replace what they destroy around here with the pines they keep planting for paper wood. We found a cool place on line called trees of antiquity that has heirloom trees and such. I think after his turtle project he is saving money to start planting some of these.

For dinner we had chicken or fish sandwiches and french fries.

Wesley is working on his penny drive to save the sea turtles for his May beach trip. He is also planting trees to replace what they destroy around here with the pines they keep planting for paper wood. We found a cool place on line called trees of antiquity that has heirloom trees and such. I think after his turtle project he is saving money to start planting some of these.

Good deal!! Everyone needs to do something. The paper industry has a history of being wasteful, and the mono-culture pulpwood trees they farm (industrial tree farming at its worst) is bad for not only the environment but wildlife as well.

Land is expensive everywhere. Locally I see prices for productive farm land at and above $6,000 per acre, a neighbor paid $7K per acre. I was able to buy at a fraction of that, but what I purchased was a diamond in the rough. Be patient, God has a plan, and if it includes a larger piece of land for you to have stewardship of then it will happen.

Supper for me was the last half of a subway sandwich. I buy 12" sandwiches and have half for lunch and the other half for supper once or twice a week.
