Welcome September!!! September to me is both a month to enjoy with warm-hot temps at the beginning of the month and progressively getting cooler as the month goes on. September is also a month to prepare for winter like the little ant. You may want to put together a winter emergency kit. In my kit I include:
Kerosene Oil Lamps as they offer great light and more than a simple flash light.
Flash lights should be kept in easy to find places If the power goes out the street lights go out as well. If you live in the country then it is even darker. Batteries should be tested periodically as well.
Extra batteries for flash lights as well as any device that you may need them for. Everything from tools that are needed in a time of emergency or games for kids take batteries.
September is a great time to wash winter linens including extra blankets that should be readyin case the heat and electricity goes out Its also a great time to test the electric blankets and heating pads that come in handy in winter.
Our home is an older house and there are lots of cracks and crevices. Small room heaters come in handy. September is a great time to locate and clean the heaters if needed.
Season change means its time to change the clothing style as well. Pull the winter clothe out of storage and get them ready to wear. You may need new pieces if children have grown Have pieces wore out?? Time to replace them is now. Check out the thrift store for great deals on winter clothing in warm weather.
Stock up on cold and flu medicine before it is needed. Use an inventory sheet to keep track of what you all ready have on hand and what you need. Remember to check expiration dates. My daughter likes herbal remedies perhaps you are as well. Do a bit of research and see what you can find that you like
September with the cooler days is a great time to make up a batch of your favorite soup and freeze it. Keep your eyes open for any sales that they have on soup in the coming months as well. Soup is great to keep on hand and makes you feel better with winter colds and blah.
She has no fear of winter for her household,
for everyone has warm clothes. (NLT)
