Roger says 'Thank you' for all the Cards

Image
Im so happy that we got food this month, because Mr Roger has to quit working at Walmart. He has been working there for 7 months, 2 days a week.   Mr Roger has got a bad sore on his foot from walking so much. The doctor said that he could loose a foot if he keeps walking without a Brace.

We are hoping they got the infection before it gets in his BloodStream.  He goes to the hospital
next week to get his foot fitted for a brace.  We want to thank everyone for sending cards, Mr Roger loves sitting in his chair reading all the cards,   It really puts a smile on his face.

10 Ways to Save Money Ever get into a money-saving rut? You’ve been frugal for a while now, you’ve cut down your bills, and are in good saving habits. But it’s time to mix things up! There are 10 ways to save money below, to help you get inspired! Every so often, it’s good to examine our savings routine and make adjustments. Some of these 10 Ways to Save Money are things you may already be doing, and some might be things you can add to your frugal repertoire: 1. Call your Cable/Dish provider. Ask for a long-term subscriber discount. 2. Use the Library more — not just books. DVDs, CDs, Learning Kits, and magazines are all available at the library. Most libraries also have community activities for all ages, which can take the place of costly activities, especially for preschoolers. 3. Don’t buy another plastic water bottle!

I should get my chickens this Saturday

Image
I ordered 15 of these chickens + a Rooster for this winter.  These chickens are bigger than the chickens I have. This chicken is a bigger  meat bird  My Chickens should arrive at the post office Saturday.

Brahma Brahmas are gentle giants with feathered legs and feet and profuse, fluffy feathering. Originally from India, these birds were bred for meat production, though the hens lay relatively decently and are great setters and mothers. This fancy breed of chicken makes a great pet for its quiet and tame nature, tolerance to the cold, huggability and sheer chic-ness I think everyone should have chickens or Rabbits to have on your homestead. Its a great source of meat for your homestead if we go into a depression.  Today I canned 10 pints of Antoboitic soup and Planted alot of Garlic.  I planted Tomados, Peppers, and more Potados today.   Im getting excited to be going back to Indiana for the birth of my Daughters baby in October.  I will be staying for about 6 weeks to help her around…
