Mini Homestead Happenings 11/29/2009

Posted by Shannon L. Buck on November 29, 2009


I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. While my daughters and I do not celebrate the old Thanksgiving, we do celebrate all that we are thankful for: Food, shelter, warmth, family and friends.

We have spent some time preparing for winter. We cleaned out much of the junk from under the trailer, left by previous owners, cleaned up the yard, banked the trailer and closed up windows.

Oil has been delivered, and we have a little food stocked. Not a lot, as funds have been limited this year. But enough to feed us a couple of weeks.

Moxie kitty has gone home to her mama. My friend was able to procure a small apartment, and she brought Moxie home to it last week. We miss Moxie, here, but she is safe and well cared for.

Our cats have their winter coats, and they are settled in for the winter. The two who go out during good weather, but do not like winter.

Zowie needs boots, and we will get them next month. We are all set with coats and such. I purchased us gloves last month.

The furnace runs at 65* during the day, 70* in the evening for showers and such, and at about 55* at night. This will take place all winter, and we will turn the furnace off as soon as we can next spring.

Zowie is doing just fine in school, and has her college applications and essays in. We are hoping for a good school. She wants to major in Psychology, and eventually work with adolescents.

I am working at my writing career, and building it up nicely.

How do homesteaders prepare for winter? I am interested in learning about all of the necessities involved. I will add this information to my homestead notebook for future reference.

Warmest Wishes,

Shannon

    Thanks for the stew recipe. I would like to try it for the family dog as well as our cats. It’s a great supplement to their regular food and will save money.
