You know how bunnies are

We want to thank all those who helped sew, stuff, paint, glue the cute little bunnies for our service project. They turned out SO cute. it was a lot of work. How can it be called work when it was SO much fun? I really had fun making these with all of you.

Our hope is that we brought a little ray of sunshine in the lives of these little ones. I will post some pictures as soon as I can get my computer to cooperate.

Prepare your ark pt 2

Okay, I know Feb is more then halfway over. Sorry, this month is crazy. here is your check list for your emergency kits

Add a can opener to your kit
Add 2 cans tuna fish/ canned meat to your kit
Add 1 large roll of paper towels to your kit
add 1 blanket to your kit.

Also, Since Feb is a month filled with all kinds of sweets you should also add sweeteners to your food storage

FEBRUARY ( food storage check list)
Suggested items: White sugar, brown sugar, powdered sugar, honey, corn syrup, maple syrup, molasses, Kool_aid,and jello.

A #10 can from the dry pack cannery is about 6lbs of sugar. If you want to have storage for 3 months for 1 person, you might buy:
4 #10 cans of sugar from the cannery(24lbs)
or 25 lbs of sugar from the store.

hints: to know how much extra to buy of the other suggested items, figure out how much you go through in a year. the next time you open a new container write the date on it and see how long it takes you to use it up. then you will know approximately how many to buy to last a year.

Kool-aid is good because it can help make your stored water taste better. Be sure to store water in proper containers. And also have sterilization item too.
