I'm sure you have noticed that the blog is taking kind of a slow down. Besides being kind of tired lately and fighting either a cold or allergies that have decided to settle in my chest. So I got on today to try to do some blogging and talk about how our lives are changing. We have always kind of talked about it but the last couple months we have set a plan into action. Now of course even the best laid plans can fail but we are working hard towards a goal. You see over the next 15 months or so we will be saving and paying off what debt we have that remains. In this time we are also going to be saving some cash up to buy some land! Yep.....we are going to become homesteaders. We have a general location in mind although we have not yet settled on a place. We want it to be that perfect forever place that everyone dreams about. Although I am sure not all of my fans have the dream of living off the grid and off the land we will not simply focus on that. We will still have great garden posts, recipes, money saving ideas and projects. I will also be doing more things on reusing and recycling! So I hope you will hang out with us on this journey into what might be the great unknown! Don't worry we still have plenty of AMAZING new products coming up for you to see to!
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
