I received tehe book I ordered Well Preserved  on Friday . There are some unique recipes I would like to try  that would add a bit of spice to food storage.

  The weather is getting cooler and the cats are moving indoors.  We took the time to deworm them and make sure fleas were in check before they stake out their desired places around heat sources.
