"How often do you/your family use candles instead of electric lights? Do you heat the house with wood?" *AJ from Texas
We're always on the lookout for books, and enjoy having many on different subjects! My Dad mentioned this: "If the libraries shut down or closed for most of the week, would we have sufficient reading material at home?"
This also convicted me to not put so much dependency on the digital world...I'll admit, I have many more digital photos on the computer, than photos that are printed! It's interesting, the physical communication/escape (hand-written letters & recipes, pictures, "visiting" a friend, reading books) can all be accomplished online. Just a thought!
*What if your electricity went out for 3 days? How would you prepare meals and does this affect your well/tap water supply?
*Do you have enough candles or kerosene lamps at home for each room?
I know we've all had "power outages" at one time or another :) No matter how long or short it goes on for, whether you panic or get excited, Its just all-around comforting to feel (somewhat) prepared.
We have well water, so unfortunately if the power goes out....the water stops. You know that feeling of suddenly becoming extremely thirsty...lol
So we're keeping jugs of water in the cabinet for reserve.
I didn't go too far into this topic, but I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Braiding the Goldenrod blooms...
After braiding with Goldenrod into a wreath, my sister hung it upon the door. Afterwards, we went out to the field to pick more flowers :)
My curious cat loves to help...
Looking for more areas to harvest flowers....
My sister picked a beautiful bouquet...
When we came inside, I caught my Mother on her way outside. She inspires me daily as she delights in her role as Help meet, Mother & Friend
After braiding the tall grass, my sister arranged the flowers together...
Into a lovely wreath!
