So I’ve gone on daily walks for two straight weeks now. That’s pretty big. Even last summer, I would take a day off now and again. Now I’ve got to keep it up.
Anyway, a sad thing happened yesterday. My small coffee maker bit the dust. No more coffee from that. I could have run down to Target and gotten another one, but I’m a bit strapped for cash until Friday…as such, I’ve got a camp coffee percolator out in the trunk of my car (from when I had roadtripped for the summer a couple years back). So, instead of doing the smart thing and just getting a new coffee maker, I got out the percolator.
As more time passes, I am starting to see the smarts in these “prepper” folks: they’re the ones who have stockpiles of food and supplies in case disaster strikes. Sure, they’re thinking WAY longer term than I usually do, but having a backup for when electricity dies isn’t a bad idea.
