Life goes on, and preparing should, too. We had a serious shake up last week when my husband was involved in a car crash during rush hour traffic. Thankfully he was only banged up, but my heart just about leaped out of my chest when he called and I couldn’t tell if he was okay or not. Our auto insurance will make a dent in replacement costs for the car, and we had been saving up because we knew his vehicle would need replacing. We just didn’t figure it would be quite so soon. Just so thankful that he is okay.
Meanwhile, on the home front, the boys and I have started putting the cold tolerant crops in the garden. (We had temps in the upper 20s last night. Brrrr….) The bulk natural food club order is coming in this week from UNFI, and I tidied up the canning pantry to see how many canned goods are left from last season. It looks like we should have made more salsa, because we are running low.
