Wow what a Saturday it has been. We got up early to do the first of many yardsales and lets just say it was the worst one I have ever had! So as we packed up we went through and donated and entire truck bed full to goodwill. Sadly our tax credit is more then we made :(. On a good note though it did nicely clean up the pile and I am refreshed to go through more. I am putting items online for sale and hopefully that has better results. This week is focused on getting ready for vacation. I will be scheduling some posts to go live while I am out of town and with any luck I will be able to do some fun posts while on the road :) So back to working on that I go! I hope everyone has a great weekend!
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
