Yesterday was the trip to the Actual Big City. It was long, tense, exhausting, but ultimately productive. I’ll write more about that later. For now I can only say I was literally staggering with both mental and physical tiredness when I got home and this morning I feel as if I could sleep all day.
Sleeping all day isn’t in the cards, however, as the trickiest part of the Great Foundation and Screen Porch Project begins today and I will be on minion duty. In this phase of the project I might not be contributing much labor, but the Monk will (rightly) want me on hand as a safety officer. And of course a general tool-hander-overer, rubble remover, extra pair of hands, and client-consultant.
I may not have a lot for you. We’ll see.
In the meantime, Survival Mom just announced that her two books have temporarily dropped to $1.99 each in the Kindle store. I have one of these books in dead-tree version and it’s excellent. Highly, highly recommended.
Here’s my Amazon link to Survival Mom: How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst-Case Scenarios. This is the one I have. The paperback makes a fine gift for people who care about preparedness but are more interested in practical, home-and-family preps than in hardcore macho survival.
Here’s my Amazon link to her co-authored book, Happy, Healthy, and Prepared: Top Tips From the Hosts of The Survival Mom Radio Network, which I have not read. This one’s Kindle only, but at the moment its price appears to be $0.00. So might want to go grab that one quickly. Lisa Bedford (Survival Mom) has no way of knowing when these prices will change.
