I am reminded every day how much I have to be thankful for. This time of year I am reminded more and more. Every day I go to school and I am surrounded by what is probably one of the best groups of teachers around. They truly love and care for the children we have and it is like I have never seen. I am thankful for my students who even on my worse day can always bring a smile to my face. They have really just changed my life like I could have never pictured. I am thankful for my friends and family because without them I would be so alone. I am thankful for the paycheck I receive. So many people cannot afford to feed their family every night and I am blessed that I can! Most of all I am thankful almost all my Christmas shopping is DONE and tomorrow is FRIDAY!
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
