|Making Mud Pies to bring Home!|
I have been working on my "craft " area upstairs which to this point consists mainly of hauling the totes of stuff up there and unpacking them to figure out what I have and don't have. One of the things I no longer have is envelopes for my stamping / cards. They all got damp and the glue stuck them shut! Guess I have plenty of "scratch" paper now. I need to get started on curtains for the cabin soon. I am going to make some "quilted" ones that hopefully will help keep the warm in and the cold out. Time will tell.

We are trying to get a really good shopping list put together for the next and possibly last trip to town for a while. There is an awful lot to take into consideration. Not only food for us but also for the animals, fuel for cooking and backup heat, also snowmachines and ATV's. Then there is the stuff needed for all the projects around here that still need done or finished. We are also going to be getting a new stove / oven! The one that is here is out of an RV and is very small. The last time I made bread it rose so high in the oven that it hit the top and fell! I know I am forgetting something that we need to stock up on but that is why I have done an inventory of what we have including things like toilet paper, paper towels, etc. And if we think of something we try to put it on the shopping list right away so that we don't forget cause it's not like "Oh well I can run to .......tomorrow"!
