Good morning everyone I hope you are all having an amazing day :) a lot going on this Saturday for me. Woke up early for no apparent reason so I have been a busy busy bee! Cleaning like crazy with a lot of laundry to do. Unfortunately I ran out of laundry soap so after 1 load I had to stop and make more laundry soap! You can find out how to do that HERE if you would like to find a great way to save money. I also did a little weeding in the garden which is going so great! I think I may have finally found a way to garden here in West Texas. Which does NOT mean I will be here forever but perhaps it can make it a little more enjoyable. I can't wait till Monday to show you what has been going on. My posts though till June will be limited on pictures :( apparently blogger does not love me enough to let me load pictures so the option is to put them on flicker so I can turn them into HTML and add them in. They limit the amount in one month that I can upload Booooo!!!! One more week of school/work here and the I have 3 days of training the following week and then I will be blogging more regularly and updating you on mission go off the grid! In fact a new tab will be added to the top of the blog VERY VERY soon! Well back to working on the house. My husband has a couple more hours of work then he is off the next two days, I unfortunately have to work on Monday :( Have a great weekend everyone and remember to follow your dreams.
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
