Sometimes in life, no matter how preppared or organised we are, busyness sometimes just caches up with you and before you know it time starts to become against you.
I enjoy my work, it is a 8 hr day followed by a drive home, so then I tend to play with the kids and before you know it again time has gone. Ok so I will do the jobs I was suppose to do tonight on to tomorrows list of things to do, just to realise the next day I get home and before I realise it, those jobs and the next jobs have gone onto the next day’s agenda with a couple of things going onto my weekend list aaahhhhhhhhh.
So now that here in aussie land we are diving into winter and getting shorter days, and dark by around 5.30, yep that’s 5.30, I tend to let things slip a little more every day. So now I am starting to prioritise my time on things that I enjoy doing indoors and infront of a nice heater….. aaaahhhh winter time to read, a time to watch more alternative news, more time to enjoy a good movie and maybe get a bit of extra gaming in, and off course try and write something on my blogg.
So a couple off things I ensure i try to not let go during the winter months, and that is all my deep cycle batteries as over winter there is not as much sun so now they all go on small trickle solar charges that keeps them full at all times, In winter months I also try to ensure all food is rotated and I ensure all my bug out equipment is aerated and clean.
So for a everyday prepper I try to make winter months count just as much as my summer months as I know I tend to get a little lazier during winter. Also winter I find is a great time to buy any extra camping gear as most of the time this is when they clear it out, so everything from fishing rods to tents I find this, is the time to buy.
Another thing I tend to keep in mind is that my BOB (bug out bag) slightly changes for winter to include warmer clothes and even a small butane stove, just in case all the wood is wet, coffee and powder milk with a extra chocolate bar or two extra. hmmmmmm
So there you have it a short read, as even tonight squeezing it in between kid’s and even clearing out the gutters ready for some heavy rain and getting ready for another big day at work…
So have a great day or night where ever you are on this awesome planet.
