Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

As this blog evolves, I imagine it will be a journal of what goes on in our daily lives. More for me to keep track of my thoughts and plans. anyways, I recently changed my way of thinking more along the lines of my husbands thinking. Well I should restate that, I never disagreed with his views on food storage and "preps" - yes I was corrected in the terminology;) I just jumped on board and am taking control of the organization of it - you know accountant background and all that, so I must be in control of the organization!

The first step for this change was that we bought a house and now live in the country - nice and far away from the city. We are also close enough to the ocean that we could be affected by hurricanes. Although in my opinion that is better than the threat of earthquakes when we were in California, at least we should have warnings about hurricanes.

Now that we have some appropriate storage space we started talking about storing grain, rice, beans, supplies, etc etc. And along with that conversation goes the wheat mill and baking our own bread. So we bought a couple buckets of wheat and I started looking into wheat mills. A couple days before I bought the mill, my cheapo mixer died so now I bought the mill and a new mixer. And was ready to make bread from scratch and is originally why I started this blog.

However, now I am thinking more and more about what I would do if I was stuck here with the kids. I decided that I am so unprepared it isn't even funny! Now I am planning on how to have a food storage program so that we can have the food and supplies necessary for whatever might happen in the future. And that's where I am right now - just at the planning stages.
