The month is drawing to a close, but I did get a few additional things accomplished in the past few weeks.
My old house will be on the market soon. A dumpster was filled last week. I’m going to need a second dumpster. That’s the danger of having a lot of hobbies, and collecting wood and other scraps for projects. The house sale will be my springboard to moving out of NJ, as soon as is practical.
The container garden is going well, despite the wet, wet…wet… weather we’re having here. The ground out behind my current place is becoming a swamp beyond my planting pots. Going to have to test out some anti-mosquito recipes this summer.
I began kitting out another 2 first aid boxes. Using the EMT boxes I picked up super cheap at the rummage sale beginning of the month, I’m doing up the smaller for basic first aid and the larger one for trauma. They’re about 50% complete.
I discovered another flea market in my new area. They have an Army Navy shop and I picked up some current MREs. I have a full pantry and already have plenty of long term food in #10 cans, 5 gal buckets, freeze dried, and self-canned. I wasn’t stocking any MREs until now. I don’t consider MREs to be long term food, but more of an immediate emergency meal stock.
This coming weekend, and a preview to a June post- more cleaning up of the old house, replacing the tubes and tires on a mountain/hybrid bike, giving away some extra plants, and picking up a freebie backpack from a friend.
