Friday Follow-Up

-- Added to the pantry. I'm working on building a 3-month supply.

-- Filled 20-oz and 2-liter bottles with filtered water from the Big Berkey.

-- Made turkey broth.

-- Made two batches of soap, and measured oils for three more batches.

-- Bought a shelf unit for the storm shelter, to stock with bottled water, canned goods, flashlights, and so on. We did some shopping for this, starting with buying some LED touchlights for inside the shelter - it's pitch black in there with the door closed! R put one right on the inside of the door so that we can turn on a light and see the stairs as soon as we open it. (We could envision trying to remember to grab a flashlight THAT WORKS and holding it while we all try to get down the stairs in a hurry!)

-- Not a homesteading task, but a personal one: I finally unpacked four of the seven boxes that have been sitting in the living room since I came home from California. It was partly grief, I'm sure. I'm thankful that I was finally able to deal with them. The other three boxes are family china, and I just need to find a place to store them.
