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.
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
