This week was a rough week for a blogger. I waited and waited on a package all to have it say it was delivered......wait wait! Ummmmm......no it wasn't it isn't here. That is when I learned about FedEx Delivery Manager! It is much like the program UPS has. You can received notifications, change your delivery time and check on your packages more readily. While we think after 5 days my package may have been located it is still not in my hands and likely it will not be until at least Tuesday! From now on I will be using this tool!
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
