Important Info. Tuesday

Posted by imawheatwatcher on June 21, 2011

Every Tuesday I will post a document that needs to be copied and put in your 72 hr. kits. Breaking it down week by week will, hopefully, make it easier to get it DONE!

This week we are gathering Immunization Records for each member of your family. When I had my girls they gave me yellow cards to take to every check up.

Food Storage Recipe Monday

Posted by imawheatwatcher on June 20, 2011

I thought that it would be a great use of this blog to post food storage friendly recipes every Monday. I have gotten several comments that people would LOVE more recipes. If you have a recipe that you love and would like to share, please email it to me!

Kool-Aid Pops

mixed kool-aid, lemonade, or juice
6-8 small paper cups
popsicle sticks, chopsticks or thick toothpicks

Place kool-aid in paper cups about 3/4 of the way up. Stick in freezer for 10 minutes. Just when they are about to freeze put the stick in the middle of the cup. Put back in freezer until completely frozen.

To eat just peel the cup away.

Enjoy!

Inspirational Sunday

Posted by imawheatwatcher on June 19, 2011

“I fear that many of us rush about from day to day taking for granted the holy scriptures. We scramble to honor appointments with physicians, lawyers, and businessmen. Yet we think nothing of postponing interviews with Deity postponing scripture study. Little wonder we develop anemic souls and lose our direction in living. How much better it would be if we planned and held sacred fifteen or twenty minutes a day for reading the scriptures. Such interviews with Deity would help us recognize his voice and enable us to receive guidance in all of our affairs.”

–Carlos E. Asay, “Look to God and Live,” Ensign, Nov. 1978, 52

Item of the Week

Posted by imawheatwatcher on June 16, 2011

Every Thursday I will post an “Item of the Week” to assemble our Preparedness kits. Don’t worry if you have just started and we are half way through the list. This will continue on a loop so we will eventually get back to the beginning. Start when you can, do what you can, and we will become prepared.

Right now we are gathering items for: Youth and Adult Emergency Kits (72 hr kits)

This week get a variety of sizes of band aids, gauze, and first aid tape.
