... had it Saturday delivered no charge. ...
And less for the checkers to notice if it's delivered here and there as well.

Yesterday was full! We checked out a new-to-us feed store and found a great source for non-GMO, non-soy for cheaper than the regular feed at the other local feed stores making it well worth the 30-minute drive to get there. And we can get it non-pelleted, whole seed which means we can use it to grow fodder also which is awesome. Then we came home to build a duck house & put the solid sides on the goat house as well as winterize the pool. Decided to hold off on the goat house as their house is actually still quite warm even with the slatted walls. No need in them getting too hot.

Now on to today's adventures...

I went to myspicesage.com...a bulk dealer...and secured various weights of that listed below from among a reasonably large selection. (Not an endorsement...just a fact)
Thanks Howard.
I went there and ordered 5 pounds of mixed
Taco Seasoning
Fajita Seasoning
Greek Seasoning
5 Lbs of straight Cinnamon Powder

I will be repacking it in small Seal A Meal bags with O2 Absorbers.
Maybe 4 oz bags for storage and also to barter.
I need to sew up some more O2 packs first for those small quantity bags.

October 31 is Halloween
Howard, you so funny!
Just a heads up reminder.
Watch the days after Halloween sales for hard candy. It stores good for many years.
Don't get the sugar free kind.

I'm up to my ears in Seal A Meal bagging chores this week.
I have 10 of new FG 5 gallon buckets with the GAMMA seal twist off lids. I'll fill those with my next orders, not this month.
I think they hold about 33 pounds or 0.72 CF of pinto beans, flour or rice (Frijoles de la Oya is a staple in our kitchen)

ULINE, 5 gallon FG buckets are ~$4.30 each in lots of 10.
Qty 10 lids are $8.00 each lidhttps://www.uline.com/Grp_456/Pails
Amazon 5 gal with a GAMMA lid are $25.00 EACH.

They have a LOT of other products for quantity FG food/water storage. I used to use ULINE for shipping products.

I began the arduous task of downsizing our home. I started with one of the guest rooms and got it down to the bare bones minimum and got it all scrubbed clean. Began a list of little repairs that need to be done in order to sell this place.
Spent a good part of the day searching the land for sale in the area where we want to move as well as cabin floor plans.
Why is moving such a huge task??

You've raised many beans, every little bean likes to learn & that requires things which they can't let go & tend to collect.
Then us beans grow up and fill a home with things beans love, tools & supplies, and things that create memories.
Grandbeans come visit, so we gotta keep some things for them to play with.
Then there's clothes for summer, more for winter, those need chests of drawers and every bean has those & closets.
Then company is coming, so we beans stuff the stuff laying out into dark corners.
Then, there's the "Tomorrow" when "it" will get done. But it doesn't always seem to get done.
Then we can't find one thing, so we go out and buy a new replacement.
So yeah, moving is hard, especially after age 50 or so.
You'll get there, we always do.

I ended up with 7 Tomato slicing knives at one point and about 5 can openers & 6-7 pairs of scissors, after moving a few times over a 6 year period. For first 3 years of the restaurant business, I lived one place during week and at restaurant (attached home) on weekends. A 2 hour drive 1 way.
Sure screwed up the regular life, but it was fun.

So very right you are there Andy! All the little accumulations sure make for a gargantuan task ahead lol
Though I have to say, the simple searching out land and floor plans is fairly exhausting as well. Part of me would just rather buckle down and do the physical labor. That has a set end (when it's all moved). But this searching feels never ending.......

I guess if the adage of one is none and two is one - then you had 6 tomato slicers :D

Alrighty folks I'm off to more canning, more searching, more herbal preparations, more dehydrating, and the task that neverends - more laundry!

And this is all I've done (yes, these jobs are quite large jobs in and of themselves) on top of riding out to take a look see at some plots of land - will definitely need the real estate agent involved to truly locate which plot is which plot.

Gave a 2 hour phone lesson in Math on Polynomials. $40.00.
Updated Self Defence thread, Winter is coming and so is extreme violence. It's been hidden by CFR controlled Media.
Religious elite in CFR knows Winter is coming.

I just did a vehicle registration online for a neighbor who is out of town til Tuesday, his wife gave me $35.00 for saving him from taking a day off this Tuesday and a possible traffic ticket for expired tags driving to ADOT office. They didn't know it could be done online.

Edit: Spent $89.00 on seeds. $14.00 out of pocket. :ugeek:
