Cold Refreshing Drinks

* Some of the links in the article may be “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive compensation.  



One thing I like to have on hand is a good water bottle. One that keeps my cold drinks cold all day long, and hot drinks hot for long periods of time. This 17oz water bottle from SunCraft is one of the choices out there. It is well made and will perform as stated, keeping cold drinks cool for 24-36 hours and hot drinks hot from 12-24 hours. 

When you are on the run with children in tow it is always a good idea to bring drinks along with you during the hot summer months. Stopping to buy drinks can be expensive and it ads up quickly. Bringing your own water or other cool drinks can save you both time and money. This water bottle is also available in the 25oz size and come in your choice of  black, mint, and ocean which I have pictured above. 

With this you can also reuse so no more bottles to recycle or send to the landfills saving everyone.

The SunCast water bottles can be found on my affiliate link below.

Red and Green Reflex Sight





This is a pretty nice site for a gun. If you are looking to have a sight with red and green cross hairs then you might want to think about getting one like this.

It has been many years since I have shot a gun but my father said it was like riding a bike. Maybe in the future I will get my gun license and start shooting again, but until then this will go to someone we know will get some use from this.

The batteries are included which is nice, you won't have to go around trying to find the right kind to get it up and going. Very easy to install, and works great.

You can find this Red and Green Reflex Sight on Amazon.


What Ohuhu has to say about their product.

Tubeless design with 33mm reflex lens aperture provides a wide field of view, suitable for rapid-firing or shooting of moving targets besides normal shooting
*Multi-Reticle (4 patterns) or variable Dot (4 different sizes) are installed
*Bulit-in mount for standard bases, no need to rezero when remounting the dismounted sight
*Parallax corrected & unlimited eye-relief; Allen head screw type windage and elevation click adjustments, with locking screw
*Ultralight, waterproof and shockproof - Powered one 3V lithium battery (included)

Ohuhu® Red and Green Reflex Sight with 4 Reticles
Mounting:
Your E/D sight includes an integrated rail that fits standard, dovetailed bases. This is suitable for most applications. Because of unlimited eye-relief with the E/D sight, you should provide at least three inches of clearance between the end ofLed & Mirror Housing and your eye when shooting. Set the rail onto the base so that the rail claw aligns with the crosscut grooves. Work the claw into the base until the cross-bolt seats into the groove. Securely tighten the locking screw with an Allen wrench included in the E/D sight.
Zeroing:
Select the reticle you desire by turning the reticle selector knob and set the intensity at the best position for you. With the E/D sight mounted, rest the gun on a solid support and aim at a target 50 to 100 yards (or meter) away. Test shots should be done in the same conditions to achieve maximum accuracy for adjustment, for which the use of firm rest for firing and same type cartridge is recommendable. Each click adjustment moves the point of impact by 1 MOA (approximately 1" at 100 vbs, 1/2" at 20 yards)

Specification:
-Weight:4.1oz/115g
-Objective aperture: 33mm
-Field o.V.: 15.8@ 100m
-1 Click: 1 moa
-Length: 82mm

16x52 Waterproof & Dual Focus Monocular




Years ago we had a monocular but I am pretty sure our son who always liked to play spy when he was little misplaced it over the years or it may be in the basement with his spy gear for all I know.

Having seen this one I thought maybe we should get another one. It is the closest thing to Binoculars we have owned and it does come in handy from time to time.

I can tell you this has a lot further reach than our original one had but then again that was over 20 years ago when we got it so things have upgraded greatly over the years.

This focuses easily and is comfortable to see through. Love the strap so that you don't drop it while moving around to see better. I can see this being used by hunters, campers, hikers,etc.

You can find this Monocular on Amazon.

    This product has dual focus capability (front and back adjustable zoom)

Be prepared




Most people know that clean water sources that are drinkable are getting harder and harder to find. So first of all we all need to take action in reducing water use, and also keeping an eye out to make sure we are giving our families healthy water to drink.

Not so easy if you are out hiking and get lost in the woods, running out of water. if you have one of these personal water straws with you then you can drink for that creek you have been following, or if need be even a puddle depending on just how long you have become.

This will keep you hydrated and aware so you can keep your head until you find your way back or someone find you. Great for the backpack, hiker, camper, hunter, survivalist, doomsday prepper. As a family we have a few stashed away just in case.

The Acquapura personal water straw comes with a bit more then what I am used to seeing, but it still works the same as all of the others. I have a video review up on another brand on our YouTube under MarksvilleandMe and will have one up on this one in the next few days, but until then check out that video so you can get the gist of what this has to offer, and how to use one.

Lanier Garden Tools Ratcheting Pruning Shears




The last few years we have a had a small garden. This year we went a little bigger, not everything is growing but we will try those items again another year. We have a good crop of tomatoes, cucumber, and squash coming in so far. Our broccoli didn't do anything.

We are still waiting to see how our pumpkins and watermelons do. With gardening we are finding we need  some extra items in able for us to be able to do what we want to do.

Such as pruning back a tree that went dead on one side because the neighbors kids tried to climb on a tree that was too small and shocked the tree when they broke one of the branches. My husband said it should come back next year if not then we will take it down,

We also have a rose bush that needs some pruning. Years ago we moved it from the front yard to the front of the house under our daughters window. It has grown so big that we needed a better way to prune it. Having the right tools like the Lanier Garden Tools Ratcheting Pruning Shears really makes the job easier.

My husband and myself are disabled to we need all of the help we can get. The kids help and we hope they will help as we age, but someday they will have their own lives and we need to be able to do some of the yard work on our own.

We are in the process of filling up our gardening bucket with items we will need, the Lanier Garden Tools Ratcheting Pruning Shears were just one of the items we needed.

You can purchase the Lanier Ratcheting pruning shears on Amazon.


What Lanier has to say about their product.
Lanier Garden Tools Ratcheting Pruning Shears - Best Pruner for Weak Hands - 1/3 the Effort Compared to Regular Shears - Soft Grip & Ratchet Action Help Keep Your Hand Comfortable - Ultra Sharp Blade

MULTIPLY YOUR POWER - The computer designed Ratcheting Cam multiplies your power. The same ratcheting power you use to lift a car allows you to cut through branches up to one inch thick. Instead of trying to make the cut with one large difficult cut our pruner cuts through with three smaller cuts which multiplies your strength. Even if you don't have limited hand mobility who doesn't want to make work easier?
ENJOY GARDENING AGAIN - As we grow older hand strength diminishes. Also conditions like arthritis and carpal tunnel make pruning painful. The ergonomic rubberized grips design gives you great control even with the lightest grip. Also the Bright Red color makes it easy to see if you lay them down in the grass.
CRAFTSMAN QUALITY - The drop forged aluminum handle is lightweight but strong. The coated hardened blade is made from High Carbon Steel so it stays sharper longer. The looped finger guard helps to give you great control while protecting your fingers. The design allows for comfortable use by either left or right handed people. The convenient locking mechanism keeps the blade closed when not in use. The built in oil sponge allows you to coat the blade which is great for storage.
GUARANTEED - We give you a five year guarantee but realistically we expect them to last five times that. When used and maintained correctly you can probably hand these shears down to your children. Any tool when used in an unintended way can fail. If you are dissatisfied with the quality or functionality of the Lanier Ratcheting Shears within 5 Years of purchase let us know and we will repair or replace them. It's that simple.
MAKES THE PERFECT GIFT - You simply can't garden without a pair of shears. And truthfully most people have very poor quality pruners. Why not give that special someone a really great pair that they will appreciate every time they use them.

Hori Hori Knife




When I received the Hori Hori Gardening Knife, I had no idea just how useful it would be. I only wish we had it when we started to plant our garden. This will be a nice product to work with next year when we plant our garden from the built in measuring depth to the sharp edges.

When I say sharp I mean sharp, please keep away from children, also store in a safe place. Even though this is meant for gardening it could easily be considered a weapon. It has both a serrated as well as straight edge.

Great for gardening, fishing, hunting, camping, or for the survivalists out there. This would make a great gift for your favorite outdoorsman.


You can buy the Hori Hori Knife on Amazon.

The hori hori digging tool is a cross between a trowel and a knife - the best garden tool for digging, planting, weeding, and dividing.

The hori hori knife blade is 7.5 inches (19cm) long, and made of sturdy stainless steel with a mirror polish finish. It has a straight edge and a serrated edge - ideal for sawing through tough roots (for instance when dividing clump forming perennials) and other gardening jobs.

The Sensei Hori Hori knife has a tough contoured and textured handle so that you have a firm grip that never slips, making it the ultimate gardener knife. It's also cold-resistant, and suitable for all weathers.

The knife blade has a depth scale marked on one side, so you know exactly how deep you're digging - especially useful when planting bulbs.

Comes with a black mock-leather sheath (with belt loop) for storage and carrying.

As well as gardening, this versatile knife is great to take with you when camping, hunting, fishing or any other outdoor activities.
