Our New Furry Friend

Yesterday morning I was woken up by a text message from my husband. It was a picture of the back of a puppy's Now none of you really know my husband I don't talk about him a a lot. This is very unlike him to do though. so I give him a call and ask what the text was about. Apparently when him and the guys arrived at work they heard a sound that was well, not so pleasant. They thought that certainly something had been hit by a car and was dying. So the search around to make sure that there is not something suffering needlessly (keep in mind it is 6am and PITCH BLACK!) Finally they found the cause of the sound. A little terrier cross, covered in ticks and riddled with pokies in his feet.  They pick him up and pick all the pokies out of his feet, get him a bowl of food and water(they have a shop dog) and from that second on he was attached to my husbands Now my husband loves dogs don't get me wrong, but we already have 3 dogs and 2 cats haha he had SWORE there would be no more pet till at least the two biggest dogs passed on. When I picked up that phone I knew that had changed, and when I got to pick up the puppy (7:30am) he had already been named. So I would like to introduce Sparky to my blogging family :O)

He's a cutie! Congrats on the new family member :)
What a sweet puppy! The poor thing.. I'm so glad the men saved him, and that you gave him a good home.

It must have been a good day for adopting pets. We took in a new cat yesterday. Someone had abandoned him. :*(

Integrating a new cat is a bit of a challenge, but he sure made himself at home, and is very sweet with out boys.

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

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 :)

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 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 After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
