I missed posting "three things on Thursday" last week but here is a little something I have been working on to continue getting prepared for emergencies a little bit at a time.a website I found the other day and thought they would be a great thing to have in case of an extended power outage during the coming winter. I have to say, I felt a little silly going to buy wood shavings when we composted some all summer long, but the bag ended up costing about 3 or 4 dollars, and I have made three of these so far. There is enough left over to make several more, once I pick up a bit more wax. They are supposed to be able to keep a small room from freezing, and if you put a grill over it, you could even warm up some food. I haven't had a chance to test them yet, but I intend to before I make more.
Lastly, I finally decided that I should indeed add hand sanitizer to our evacuation bags, so I picked up the three small bottles of it.
