It is hubby's 51st Birthday today and we are celebrating quietly at home. I plan on BBQing up a wild salmon with cilantro rice, salad and a store bought cherry pie which was his requested desert. I could have made one and saved about $2 but was busy so decided this time I would go for the convenience. We could have gone out to dinner but he wanted to stay in as we have eaten out twice last week, once taking business clients who were in town out for dinner and once when our neighbors took us to dinner as a thank you for some lending some yard equipment and childcare. It was completely unexpected but really nice.
I started on an Emergency Preparedness kit today buying 8 liters of distilled water. According to this Emergency Preparedness Kit checklist they suggest you have 4 liters of water per person per day for a minimum 3 days in your home kit so I will have to buy more on the next shopping trip. Reading the list makes you realize that you should make kits for home, in your car and at work. You should also prepare a bag/backpack if you were evacuated. You can buy pre-made kits but I prefer to make our own as it is less expensive.
Do you have an emergency preparedness kit and if so what is in it?
