Impeccable Petunia Part 1


It is no secret around here that I love my chickens. So when I was given a chance to review a book about chickens of course I was very excited! Yeah I know what you are thinking and giggling about my husband does it all the time.lol Impeccable Petunia was sent to me by the author Katie Christine and it wasn't only me that was super excited to read it. My daughter Allison shares so much joy in animals, so we sat down and read it together. We laughed at the antics of the chickens and how well it was written from the view of the animals.Petunia is a chicken of a different color, not only in the way she looks but in the way she views the world. She befriends a human which of course is unheard of and as the flock reacts the story unfolds. The ending of the book only leaves you wanting more!This was a great book which my daughter and I really enjoyed reading it together we cannot wait until part two is released. I highly recommend this book for reading. It is available at Amazon to download to your kindle and make sure to visit her website to find out more about her upcoming books.

I have been contemplating on whether or not to get my own chickens! My brother in law has 4 or 5 but he will has been contemplating switching to ducks...he also has maggots, yucks!

Is it hard to take care of chickens?

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

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
