Feather your Nest Friday, 3rd December. 2021.
It is December and also the start of summer for us. It was a good and busy week.
In all this time our community and local towns have never had a case of Covid. So we have been very lucky. But this week the states opened up and within a couple days all of our towns were listed as "exposure sites" ie someone had stopped at the road house, hotel, supermarket... presumably that later tested positive. And so just like that things changed. I figured it won't be long and there will be local cases.
We do all the preventative things. Now I decided maybe I need to do some things to be ready in case any of us do get sick. Amongst Bluebirds, friends and bloggers I follow I did a bit of a survey and information gathering. We already know that Zinc and vitamin D are two things we can do in our favour. I already added an oximeter to our medical cabinet along with cough expectorants and so on and so forth.
Everyone largely told me the same things. It is rather helpful that some of my good friends already had covid go through their households. Who better to ask? I got the same answers over and over. They were to have everything you need for a few weeks on hand. Have good healthy meals in the freezer and lots and lots of nourishing soup and drinks. I got a lot of medical tips too.
I feel much better with a plan. I decided to review how we shop and deal with everything that comes into the house. Packaged stuff that can sit out in the sun does so. Everything else is wiped over or washed.
So... in town I bought myself a turkey. I stocked up on fruit juices and lemonade. Then I spent Tuesday cooking veggies in the air frier and oven and cooked the turkey that evening. This gave us a pretty splendid dinner! After dinner I plated up another roast dinner for us. This gave me Thursday night off. A big dinner for Chloe and Luke. That gave Chloe the night off. Then I plated up roast dinners to freeze.
I got these lovely containers from Kmart. You can use them over and over. I like them as they stack nicely in the freezer.
