Gardening With A Chance of Rain!

What a great Sunday this has been so far. After getting to sleep in 2 hours I headed outside to work on the garden and clean out the chickens coup. With 3 inches of rain last week the weeds had gone mad! So much of my time was really spent there. I'm happy to say though after several weeks I FINALLY have some new plants coming up!
Finally a cucumber plant! He has a long ways to go.

Our first tomato growing great!
I also have a Scarlet Runner Bean plant coming up, my friend over at My Side of Life sent me some seeds. Hopefully next week he will be big enough for pictures! She is such a great gardener if you love to garden make sure you head over to check out her posts.
The chickens are doing great and almost 10 weeks old! They don't seem to be growing any more which is GREAT news for their mortality rate.lol We let them out to run this morning while I cleaned out their pen. :O)
They love their picture taken :O)
Now you all are probably wondering about the title and the big R word! Yep for 13 of the next 14 days that is what we here in West Texas are expecting, RAIN! I really hope these weeks break the cycle of misery and heat around here. Happy Sunday Everyone!

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!

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 :)

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
