Still beading here Andy...and waiting to hear back about the shearling....

I dropped into fb for a bit because that is where all the beaders are. Aside from that I listen to audio books and it takes all my hands and eyes to bead. I learned a long time ago that I need extra hands to bead and type, but no one seems to have any ;)

Oh, that's so pretty Elew! And I'm glad you like the chicken posts. Andy, I'm with you in hoping that people are just too busy with their preps to post much. It feels like time is getting shorter and I, for one, need to be putting my back into it.
I've been busy hauling and splitting wood. The "laundry room barn" is also done or at least done enough to get the birds in there before the arctic blast rolls in this afternoon. The rain at the edge of the front has just started so I got it done just in time. I'm giving them a little more time in the chicken run while I finish my cup of coffee. It's been a hectic few days. I found a local source for bulk organic fodder seeds so I'm very excited about that. Something got into my greenhouse and ate a bunch of freshly germinated wheat berries so I have to start all over now. Oh well.

Thanks Dirt :) It's a trick feather...eventually it will morph into a wood stove, hopefully by spring!

I was listening to Self Liberation Through Seeing with Naked Awareness


It dawned on me, if we look at everything happening (with the powers that be) in terms of chakras it is like a systematic chakra sabotage or attack. I don't even know what it would be called...I think the root chakra is the only one left now that the gender stuff is well underway. It's a strange thing to notice suddenly, because it's been pretty systematic starting back in the late 60s maybe, at least from what I can see.

How did i prepare today.... I got on this forum & started to read...
i have an allotment & have seeds from last year already to go, beds dug over with manure under cover etc.... so its reading time while the snow is on the ground!

Which came first the plan or the action?
I keep telling people the Bible is TPTB ToDo List for them to manipulate & do man made events to fulfill prophecy in Revelation and also fulfill rebuilding of the Temple of Solomon, August 11, 2019.
Glad someone else has said what i have thought many times.... "it must be true because the bible said so... but with so many false versions... what to believe?
I have a king james version.

I've spent the past couple of days working hard here at the farm. It warmed up so I ended the laundry room barn experiment. It didn't smell too bad and the girls didn't miss a beat laying eggs but it still wasn't ideal. Chickens are a little too crazy for indoors but overall I think we can live with having them in the laundry room during emergencies. I spread their used bedding over the third King Stropharia bed. Now I just have two berry beds, one raised bed, and one regular garden plot that still need the used bedding treatment before planting time.
I've also been busy building a new wood crib and hauling and splitting more of the poplar deadfall from the church a couple of blocks away.
Tomorrow I'm helping a friend at her farm in exchange for more firewood.
So much to do, so little time.

Glad to see everyone keeping on, reading your posts is food for the soul in a time like this. @Harrybrown Welcome to the board buddy! I would love to see more people share their journey for others to learn from. @Murphy Good work on the firewood man, gonna get the chainsaw tuned today and see what I can gather in deadfall. At this point I don't know if there's much point in not cutting down the hardwoods and even fruit trees with how the rain is probably going to be even worse this year. @Andy I don't trust health care on a personal level anymore, was at the doctor's the other week and they asked me 3 times if I wanted the flu shot, and on the final No they told me my calcium was too high and wanted to draw blood instead, the first they've ever drawn blood in the office, but this is the same doctor that makes me wait 2 hours while they put all the people with yamakas before us... so I'm not surprised. @Elew You do beautiful work, very impressed! Good points on the chakras, pretty sickening to me researching them more how much the non energized ones resonate with me. FN hilarious about the trick feather :mrgreen: keep it up everyone!

Nothing wrong with that Andy, trying to remind myself how energy is going to be so precious someday and on a spiritual level I am at peace with that fact and everything else that I full well expect and believe in my heart is going to transpire. We are living through history, even now at the beginning of solar cycle 25 it's a humbling but also privileged thing that we get to prepare at all, not just in necessities but in acceptance of this fact that things won't be the same. No better time to take it all in and enjoy it the best you can, this sense of normalcy may become rare.

Left my axe on the splitting stump and it rusted, but got it cleaned thanks to the dremel + a grinding stone, cleaned residual w/ steel wool, easy to get razor sharp w/ a metal file + a vice and treated w/ gun oil + motor oil. Sealed some beans/meat, matches, and other things. Filled up more water bottles/containers thanks to the berkey filters and picked up the other two wood cribs that fell and covered them/put them in the shed for now, supposed to be nice the next couple days so trying to take advantage. Finally ordered a new printer too so can start tackling getting more dinero towards a wood stove/defense/security. Doors need hardened, would like boards ready to go for the windows, etc. Recently started a bug out bag w/ medication, p100 mask, first aid, utility knife that double as pliers, a fishing map and a regular map, compass, solar battery bank and a sealed MRE among other things :D

I mentioned my friend the chicken breeder in a previous post. She's affiliated with the Livestock Conservancy https://livestockconservancy.org/. She sent an email to them last year detailing the need to concentrate on species and breeds that aren't grain-dependent due to looming shortages and price spikes in grains. To that end she and her husband started a flock of geese and now they're moving into duck breeding as well. Welsh Harlequins to be specific. They are calm and good egg layers. So yesterday I worked at her farm building a duck enclosure.
I also cut and split yet more firewood.
Today I need to work in the greenhouse and harvest vermicompost for seed starting. I'm harvesting it for myself and for another friend who is a retired horticulture professor from NCSU.
I'm bringing up my friends because I want to encourage everyone to go out and form relationships with people who have something to teach. Work alongside them so you can learn. We're addicted to our computers, but there's much more that can be learned by getting our hands dirty. These people are in their 70's and 80's. Their decades of experience won't be found on youtube. We need their knowledge and they need our strength and energy. Everyone wins in that situation.

I came to the forum and learned some things from some really smart people! I also ordered some more copper plates for another generator and a case of 50 LED garden lamps in 12 - 14 volt DC format. I will be giving a set of e27 socket LED garden lamps (85 - 265 VAC) to my brother to get him started on his own garden. I love how industrious and creative everyone is here and I look forward to reading more wonderful posts with some of the best ideas I have come across in a long time... keep it coming folks!

Walter.
