Sunday mornings are the only days we really have nothing to do. There is no rushing about to basketball games or school. So I take every opportunity to make the most of the "relaxing" day I get. Creating as few of messes as possible is one way I help myself. I found this neat idea a while back on Pinterest and boy has it been a wonderful find :O) It really is simple just take an old ketchup bottle. I've seen other bottles used but I love the no spill design of the ketchup bottles. I use just add water pancake mix so when I buy a box I take my funnel and fill several bottle ahead of time so when Sunday comes I can simply add water, shake well and cook. These are going to be so handy for camping to!
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
