Armed Forces Day

One cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war. ~ Albert Einstein

Although we all have our own opinions on war, today is not the day to spout them. Today is a day to recognize and pray for soldiers the world over. Whether they are ours (USA), those of our allies or of our “enemies”.

Every soldier has his or her own reason – selfless or selfish – for signing up but it cannot be denied that it can be one of the most brutal jobs one can have. Brutal mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Today, I ask for you to join me in prayer for all soldiers. Even those who are not “ours”. Even if we eventually “win” the wars we are involved in, we will have lost many, many people. Maybe even some who would have been our greatest leaders.

Wishing you much peace, happiness, and success,

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mommies, soon-to-be Mommies, wanna be Mommies, and Heart Mommies (stepmoms, single dads, teachers, bus drivers, and more)!

Mother’s Day is a day to pray and give thanks for our mothers. Even if you mother was not the greatest, spend a few seconds at least thinking one nice thing about her. After all, regardless of who she was or wasn’t, she did give the world one of it’s most glorious blessings: a child. You.

Wishing you much peace, happiness, and success,

There’s cattle to tend, goats to feed, paperwork to file, social media (customer service) to respond to, bills to be paid, and a ton of other stuff to do but your tummy is growling and the kids are getting downright hangry!

OH NOES! WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO?!

You are going to make Penny’s 4 Minute (or less!) BLT, that’s what. It’s fast, easy, cheap, filling, and delicious!

Ingredients

  • Butterball Everyday Turkey Bacon
  • Tomato
  • Lettuce
  • Condiments
  • Seasoning (if desired)
  • Cheese (if desired)

DIRECTIONS

Stick a few slices of Butterball Everyday Turkey Bacon in the microwave as instructed. While those are being nuked, slice your tomato and lettuce (or spinach leaves). After that, just split open a Hawaiian roll and add your condiments, veggies, seasoning, and cheese. Top it all off with your warm turkey bacon as soon as you hear that microwave binging.

Weekend Warrior: 21 Prepper Skills

Prepping is a practical skill that can benefit any household. Even if you don’t think the poop will ever hit the fan, our families don’t have to suffer so much (if at all) when the next natural disaster hits or if a political/economic decision or act of war affects our food or household good supply lines.

SHTF VS. TEOTWAWKI

If you do decide that you want to err on the side of caution and prepare for a disaster that may be inevitable, there are two scenarios you need to know about. There are a lot of acronyms for both scenarios but they are known best as SHTF and TEOTWAWKI.

Read the rest from the Redneck Survivalist …

As scary as any of those events may be, they actually aren’t super hard to prepare for. Yes, you may have to learn some skills you would prefer not to but the outcome for your family is much better.

The Suburban Steader has a great post called “21 Prepper Skills You Can Improve This Weekend” that I highly recommend reading.

It’s not an overwhelming or complicated list. Just some solid self-sufficiency skills you might be surprised you may already know or can develop without too much trouble.

Easy Ant Repellent

Ants. Ants everywhere! You don’t want to wait until you have an infestation that feels like the scarab attack scene from The Mummy but you aren’t ready to call in a pest control specialist yet either.

So, What Do You Do?

The fastest and easiest thing to do is mix about a 1:8 mixture of Dawn and water in a clean spray bottle. Then simply spray down any area you see ants! Counters, cupboards, the corner of the window where they are coming in.

Don’t rinse it off. Wipe it dry. The little bit of Dawn residue left should not be an issue for children or pets but it will bother the heck out of the ants. You can also spray their trail directly to disturb their progress.

Physical Appearance, Mindset, And Confidence

Choosing to be your best self isn’t just about how you look. It is about your mindset, self-care, and your wellness. We all know appearance isn’t everything (or at least, it shouldn’t be) but it does impact how you present yourself and interact with others.
