On my blog I have been sharing a lot of giveaways thanks to Home Jobs by Mom.  I also am sharing weekly the Traffic Jam Weekend Linkup.  In other areas of my life I am trying to share positive thinking and cheer. I know that we are all struggling right now with what is happening in our nation.

I am hoping that in the very near future I can get back to sharing more about my homesteading adventures of learning about herbs,  making things from scratch and hatching and raising chickens.


I am writing on my blog using the A-Z challenge for the month of April. I will be posting a post using the letter A on April 2nd.

I am wishing the best for everyone. I know that those that struggle with mental health are having a more difficult time with depression. Everyone is having a bit of cabin fever but staying home is necessary for safety. I am wishing that I could do more to help others at this time.


I am investigating what seeds we need to get started for our garden. We will definitely be growing more of our own food this year. Thankfully we have some kids that are interested in working a long beside us to grow yummy vegetables.

and buying.

Well one thing I am not buying is toilet paper. I have not been able to get any since the shelves were wiped out. Our normal supply is dwindling fast and I am concerned when I can get my hands on more.  How is the toilet paper situation where you are? Are you concerned about not being able to access it?

How is the pandemic situation where you are? Our state just issued a more strict stay at home mandate that goes into effect April 2nd. My family was following the precautions anyway but the stricter mandate makes things a bit more real and scary.

But I am not going to let fear rule me. I am going to use this time wisely to be as productive as I can from home. I will be spending more time working on focusing on my family and whatever I can do to help others from a distance.

  1. I am concerned with the TP situation also. I didn’t panic or bulk buy. I have 10 rolls left! I have searched high and low for it. I’m sure I will find some somewhere, or I hope I do!
    I am participating in the A to Z challenge also. I haven’t posted yet. I still need to finish up some of the stuff. I do it on a separate blog so I don’t get too confused. Haha. 🙂

  2. I feel like using an online community to encourage people to stay home, and also bring them some cheer, is really helping others. Particularly the reminders to stay home, which will save lives! We are midway through our 3rd week of schools being closed, and I imagine that the shelter in place order for the state will be extended soon, and that school will be cancelled for the remainder of the year. It’s really hard to think about having to homeschool out the year, but you’re right that it doesn’t serve us to live in fear. Trying to pick out the good parts of it in the meantime – how it’s cool to actually watch my kid in action with his learning, to get to spend outdoor time with him in the middle of the day.

    Hope you and your family stay healthy, hang in there, and enjoy time together!

  3. Luckily, we’re doing okay on TP but it is kind of nerve-wracking because it seems like whenever you need it, it’s not there! I hope you can find some soon. Thanks for the giveaway links – I’ll have to check those out. 🙂
