Common Sense Home Good News Letter 1/29/23
“My 3 y.o. learned the Wisconsin goodbye…”Love you Mom…watch for deer!” 🦌😄“
How do you say “I love you” or “I’ll be thinking about you” without actually saying the words?
A friend posted the above note on social media, and I thought it was so sweet that her little guy had already learned this way to let his mom know that he cared.
I’ve been thinking about you, too, and finally made time to get started on the email series that I’ve wanted to do for a while.
In addition to the weekly newsletter, you now have the option to sign up for mini newsletters by subject. I know sometimes the full newsletter can be a lot to sort through, so the mini letters cover only one thing, like a gardening idea or preparedness tip.
If you want to focus more on a particular topic, just use the “manage subscriber settings here” option at the bottom right of any of our emails. This will take you to an “Update your profile” page where you can pick your favorites.
If you don’t want to change anything, you don’t have to do anything. The weekly newsletter will still go out as normal.
All our best to you and yours,
Laurie (and August IV, August V, and Duncan)
P.S. … and don’t forget to watch for deer on those country roads.

You can retrofit safe rooms into existing construction, too.

It’s funny how many items randomly go out of stock nowadays, yet the Valentine and Easter candy are still stacked up in the stores. I’d still rather make our own treats, and these sugar cookies are a family favorite.
