Wow it has just been so busy around here. I can't believe how fast christmas is coming with so much planning left to do. Our big giveaway will be here soon and you will want to check that out. My oldest turned 10 today and my baby 5 last week. I do have some sad news to report :( our chickens are now down to one. Last week a stray animal dug in and killed one and almost the other. She is healing well I am happy to say :). We are out of town till Monday so I am writing this from the car. Isn't technology amazing! My son about had a heart attack when he learned we didn't even have computers at his age.lol well i hope everyone has a great weekend, stay safe.
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
