Day 7 with Cornish Chicks-Stupidity Strikes

*SIGH* I knew it would only be a matter of time before they really started to show how stupid they are.lol It is a beautiful day outside today here and the children are on spring break so I decided it would be a good idea to take them out in the garden while I did some weeding. They were loving scratching around the garden, giving me some fertilizer while they were at it ;o). Suddenly my oldest yells to me that one was laying on its side..I get up and head over there and it jumps up only to lay back down. I got really worried and thought for sure this was the end of one of our sweet little chicks. My 4 year old simply says mommy I think she is thirsty and picks her up and carries her to the water. Sure enough the stupid little chick was just to stupid/lazy whichever it was to walk 2 feet to get a drink! She is fine now screaming for feeding time.lol I see this may be a long road. If they don't become stable enough to walk a couple feet for a drink they will never survive.

30 Day Beach Body Challenge- Day 3 #30dayfitness

Here we are at day 3, now unfortunately I am to sick to work out today but I wanted to make sure that I shared the information with you on how to do these exercises so that everyone could easily get their's done. I will catch up as I can, may even try to add extra to the days once I feel better. For today it is 50 burpees and 50 kick down crunches. If you don't know how to do these make sure to scroll down for directions! You will also see why with the flu these aren't doable.lol HOW TO DO A BURPEE!
HOW TO DO A KICK DOWN CRUNCH!

Homemade Fly Traps

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

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
