This is the sky that greeted us as the sun rose this morning. As beautiful as it is, it is definitely an indication of the nasty precipitation coming in this afternoon. No surprise there - we get a couple of really nice days and then mother nature dumps some junk on us. They are predicting freezing rain for the commute home. I will feel better when everyone is where they need to be.
I finally got the pantry re-arranged and am now ready to start stocking up my bulk buckets that will fit across the bottom row. I will use the buckets for 25lbs of flour, sugar, salt, and rice in plastic bags stored inside. I can add buckets as I need them.
I have two additional shelves above the two in the photo and the pantry is actually 12 feet wide. It should hold six months worth of food and paper goods. Our Shaw's market has great sales on Monday's and I've been taking advantage of those as well when I can get there. The 10 for $10 for boxes of pasta and canned goods is the worth the trip. Yesterday cereal was 50% off each box. A good sale :)
In the meantime, I'm working on garden layout and getting ready to go buy my garden seeds. I'm so anxious to see dirt. It will be awhile with all this snow but I know it's down there somewhere. Where do you all get your garden seeds?
