What did you do for your preparedness this week? (2017-12-2)

Perfect Mountain Cabin?
Found this ‘mountain cabin’ painting online which caught my eye this morning.
Who wouldn’t want to live there?!

My preparedness week has involved installing windows (barn project). Spent all day last Saturday back out in the woods doing final trail work clearing trees from that major wind event we had a month ago. Will be nice to have today off! Although will be working here at the homestead (it never ends…, although I’m not complaining – I enjoy it!). We have been lucky not having a major snow event yet and I will be doing more outside work while I still can.

Captured this image from my trail-cam which I had set up near the pig guts. Looks like a Red Tailed Hawk?

Okay, so what have you been up to this week?
