I was disposing of a hospital medi cart yesterday at work. I took off one of the security locks because it had a key and I could use it for other purposes. The drug drawer had no key so I smashed it open. It was full of pills ,non narcotic,and some injectable lung congestion drugs to go in iv's . Some clear patch wound dressings and strangely a web ratchet clamp. Good score. I will check and see what some of these things are over the weekend and print off use and dosage for them in my first aid gear.

Planted 3 rhubarb corms from a neighbour in my flower bed and started hauling berry bushes downhill to plant along a drainage swale to protect its banks . I will have to do a temporary electric fence to protect everything from the horses for a few years to let the bushes establish .

Wrote a letter to my sons university asking for a pre emptive plan for students to continue education online spelling out my exact concerns not only for their welfare but so they can assist families with senior members more at risk .

Offering a bribe for millenial sons to come help me on the farm rather than socialize on their week long break from school .

Ordered 2 gallons of Hibclens online, expected shipping end of March . Ordered better can openers . Ordered eye protection goggles .

If weather permits, I would shave my dogs as close as possible. I was in rescue for almost 10 years and germs/viruses can adhere to their hair. If weather doesn't permit, I would still shave hair but add a sweater/coat (washable).

in some very bad hoarding cases, we had to shave the dogs :< due to all the bad stuff.

The #1 thing is not allowing cats or dogs to free roam off your property as they could come into contact with a virus etc...

I finally said F it and bought a compact 9 mm capable of having a red dot mounted.

I'd the good fortune of having the Hellcat and SIG P365XL side by side. It definitely came down to how it felt in hand, and trigger pull that changed my mind and put the SIG P365XL in the lead. A neat result of that decision was the applicable SIG red dot is HALF the price of the sight best for the Hellcat. In the interim, I'd been waiting for the Hellcat because of problems with the SIG P365, but those problems didn't go into the P365XL.

I sent off some N95 and carbon filter masks to a relative, good to have them on hand. I learned, to my surprise, that my non prepper sister keeps hand sanitizer in her vehicles.

The non contact thermometer, using a common battery will be a nice addition. Not super expensive, and it's well rated.

Installed more cabinets in the garage as well as a eight foot long butcher-block countertop to mount my reloading presses on.

I love weekends, as most often I get grandchildren and/or GREAT-GRAND-CHILDREN overnight. Who is babysitting who is a question.

Here great grandson is pondering, can we go outside & play on the rain and mud.



Nap after a bath (after playing in the mud)

Pulled out the generator, gave it a service and generally cleaned it up. Put the battery on charge. I've neglected this task for over a year and consider myself lucky that it was still in good order.

Cleared off two more shelving units in the outbuilding (including the one with my canning jars)' got the canning jars and the totes with all the extra rings and lids moved to the storage container (MUCH closer to the house) and got the canning jars onto the new all metal shelving unit (they were too heavy for the other shelving unit); got the cleaned off shelves onto the frame that had previously been moved in; and moved one of the other shelving units from the outbuilding to the container (after removing and cleaning the shelves, then replacing them once they were dry.)

Still to do is to move the last of the empty shelving units (will have to remove the shelves and clean them off. The bottom shelf is toast, because of getting wet, since the outbuilding leaks around the skylights) and empty the last shelving unit (the one with all the BOBs and ammo); move the milk crates with the 2 quart bottles of water; the jugs of vinegar; the boxes of MREs; my table; and once son-in-law is back from his trip and his friends come over, move the antique woodburning cookstove. Finally, once the electrician runs the power from the pole to the container, we can move the refrigerator and chest freezer. I can purchase the replacement upright freezer and get it in place before the power is run.

Once the freezers and fridge have been moved, all of my stuff will be out of the building, and son-in law can start getting it ready to turn it into his brewery.

Had to go to Walgreens to pick up a prescription, and found they had Celebrity 1# canned hams on sale 3 for $9.00. No limit They have a " best use by date" 5 years out from their production date stamped on the bottom of the cans. Kept in a cool place, it will keep a lot longer. It's tasty, real ham, and a good protein to add to spuds, or beans and rice. It was a nice addition to the pantry.

This week reinforced that we can reasonably function with reduced sleep.
Sun-Mon, worked for 32 hours straight.
Tues - Wed worked for 38 hours straight.

Once over the "Hump" working was not too difficult.
