    With all this stay at home foolishness & my general paranoia.I have a chore list a mile long,but thinking some supplies might not be there this fall.

    Gathered up all the loose jars & inspected,confirmed the bucket of jar flats&rings where not damaged. and that all squared away.

    I made a Lowes run & got more totes & buckets .
    Going to standardize some gas jugs & spouts.
    Realized I need more room for Charcoal & Propane .

    Wife has lots planned for me now that they have cut her hours, but not mine. Already remodeled almost all of our downstairs and now she wants to move up stairs after I get done with tile in kitchen and install new cabinets and counter tops.

    Same here. Replacing all the decking boards on our 700 sq ft of decks and remodeling the master bath just got added to the to do list. We had decided not to do these because we were going to sell our house but then this crap hit and we decided to let the dust settle.

    Stocked up on canning supplies now. Attempting to small feedlot panel greenhouses that are 8x12 to be able to grow some stuff over the winter, and start seeds earlier for next spring.

    I've got my gardens and long term food storage settled. Now I'm working on the chicken palace. It's too damn big to be called a coop.
