Dog Trots Globe Book Review & Giveaway

I am not really much of a reader so I try to keep my book reviews to topics I truly enjoy. When I came across the opportunity to review this book I knew it was for me. Dog Trots Globe- To Paris & Provence by Sheron Long is the journey of an adorable Shetland Sheepdog to France. I have never talked about my childhood but growing up I had always had a sheltie, and my mother still has several. Growing up a military brat we also got to travel the globe. Of course as a child I never thought about the world through my dogs eyes, so every page of this book brought a smile to my face as I thought back to my beloved childhood friend and what he must have thought on all of our trips and moves. This book was really well written and you can almost feel like you understand what the dog must have had going on in his mind. The pictures are also very vivid and fun, they help to set the scene and of course show us the cute doggy the whole time. I couldn't find a picture of my childhood friend that would scan well, but here is a picture of another one of my four legged friends. His name is sunny and has seen more journeys then I will ever know. I found him about 8 years ago running down the street. He was so poorly cared for and had been out so long he had to be shaved. His biggest journey now is going outback to the potty.lol If you love dogs and are looking for a fun book for the whole family I highly recommend this book to you.

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 …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
