Hello, :O) well just wanted to drop a note to all my readers and let you know that I am headed out for vacation. I'll try to pop in but sometimes cell service cuts out and I won't be able to make it in. Over the next 10 days I will have several guest posters as well as posts of my own that are preset to post. We are headed to the Colorado area to see areas like Silverton and Chama. We will be doing a little bit of gold panning, off roading and a lot of camping! Don't forget that there will still be giveaways running so make sure to come back for your daily entries. I hope you really enjoy the guest posts please make sure to check out their blogs to thank them for helping me out while I am gone. I hope your family has a fun and safe 4th of July. Stay tuned for lots of fun things when I return hehehe.
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
