What is there not to like about Sundays? Except the fact it is the day before Monday, it is the perfect day.
I was able to sleep in a little this morning, but in doing that made it where it was already to hot to get out and do much.That's ok, I really didn't want to anyway.
After breakfast everyone got all prettied up and we went to refill our spiritual tanks this morning. It was much needed due to the fact I had not been in two weeks because of the sickness that has been running throughout this house. I think we kicked it's bacterial butt for now (knock on wood). Everyone is over it.
After church we did a little cleaning and started getting ready for another hot, dry week. I sure did not want another weekend to go to waste like the last one did so I decided to finish up doing some much needed prepping stuff.
I had to re-figure our Bug out bag a little. There is just way to much stuff for five people to live for 72 hours that you can put into a backpack. To remedy this I put all the "Keep me alive" stuff in the backpack and put all the food and water stuff in another. They both now have a place next to the front door tied together just in-case someone forgets to grab both, they will drag the other one right along with them. Smart hu?
The youngest and I also filled another dehydrator today with more seasoned okra. The last batch of these little tasty bites lasted only a day and I didn't even get any. This batch, if I can get to it in time, will be placed into vacuum sealed bags and put into the BOB #2.
I also learned I can not only eat these the way we have been, but I can also reconstitute these and put them in rice for a nice jumbo. One reader said the okra will come back as good as new, slime and all. Being that they are already seasoned makes it all the better.
Yall have a good week and try your best to stay cool.
Now I need to figure out what I am going to do about BOB #3, the clothes bag. I'm telling ya, try packing for five people for three days and have everything to just survive on. It is a real chore. I swore I would not have more than one bag, but it just ain't gunna happen.
