[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0Mzc3OTIzXzkwQUVDQ0NE] Winter Foraging: Mussels One of the few things you can harvest in wintertime is fresh and salt water mussels. I hesitate to mention this as it's not allowed in some states. There's a good reason for that: they're filter feeders and are rivers are polluted. Of course, those same rivers are fished in, and if the SHTF and you're starving, then you'll probably attempt it anyway. Mussels pack a lot of nutrients in a small package. I like them steamed in a little chicken broth with garlic and maybe a little diced onion and some wine. To me, it's an inexpensive meal if I have some good chewy bread with that, and I'm perfectly satisfied. Mussels have little beards on them. Here's how to deal with them: http://allrecipes.com/howto/cleaning-mussels/ One of the best sites is Eat the Weeds. Green Deane did an article on them: http://www.eattheweeds.com/musseling-in/ Mussels were commonly harvested back during the frontier period. The shells were used for making buttons. The First People used them for jewelry: http://www.museum.state.il.us/ismdepts/zoology/mussels/intro_humanuses.html It was also used as a tempering agent for making pottery. Look here for a plethora of uses for sea shells of all kinds. http://www.manandmollusc.net/advanced_uses/advanced_uses-print.html [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
