Think About It Thursday

This week I was thinking.lol I always have things to be thankful for but my husband was listening to a radio show and there was something to think about haha. According to the Mayan calender the world is going to end on December 21st of this year. Well if you are as old as me you have already survived several different people saying it is going to end. So anyways with all of these storms coming through lately and the tragedy it brings with it. Now imagine if we had no weathermen, tall buildings, grocery stores.......what if all these events happened?? In the day of the Mayans it would have certainly meant that the world's end was quickly coming. 
Second thought of the week.lol Yeah I know you may think I am crazy by now but go with it! What if you were on a plane and you crashed somewhere that was basically taking you back in time. There is no power, no running water. How long do you think it would take to get to where we are today in society??

That is a lot to think about! In this day and age it seems like the world is going to end when the internet goes down. lol.
Every week according to someone the world is going to end. Interesting question and not really sure on the answer. I would imagine a very long time!

It's like Revolution! I watch that show, computer on lap, phone in hand, and think, "yup. I'd die."

I'm adaptable! I could do it, though I'd complain a little at first. :)

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.
