Welcome to another Monday Musings, where we share interesting links about all things preparedness, as well as updates on the blog.
Lots of blog updates this week…
An early start to the cold season We got a early start with the cold season this year, with my son catching a bad cold and now has bronchitis. The doctor said as soon as school starts they see an uptick in sick visits. It is viral, so antibiotics are not needed, just symptom relievers. We had some cold medicine stocked up but not nearly enough! We now have to replace the items we had used up.
Fall is here! It’s been a long, hot summer and we’re glad the fall weather is soon to come (any day now…) This means it’s time to do a few fall prepping chores that we do every year:
- As mentioned, rotate and stock up and cold medicines. We hope we won’t need any more but just in case.
- Clean up the balcony garden and replace with fall/winter plants.
- The holidays are right around the corner, and we’ll be stocking up on items that normally go on sale: flour and other baking ingredients, canned pumpkin, corn, green beans, instant mashed potatoes etc.
- Check the cold weather gear, repair or replace blankets, sweaters, jackets etc.
- Review power outage emergency supplies: test and replace batteries, flashlights, light sticks, cooking backups, water and food storage etc.
Podcasts A big thank you to Kat Yorba and Janet Garman for having me on their podcast, Around the Cabin’s 2 Chicks Chatting that aired 9/23/2015 I haven’t participated in a live podcast before, and found the discussions to be lively and engaging.
