Wow what a long but great day. We have slowly been getting things cleaned up and packed up around here. Putting things in boxes for the rv, storage or to sell has been a slow process. It is so hard to know what you might need and it can be really hard to get rid of the things you know you don't need. Over the years though I think we have become attached to these objects and I am really starting to hate that. I know this life is unhealthy so one by one some of these things make their way into the sell section and I am feeling more at peace. Letting go of these objects has really helped me to see who I am, a person I feel I haven't seen in a long time. We were going to sleep in the camper tonight but our house cannot support the rv long enough to cool it off using the air conditioner :( another downside to this house. We did sit and play games a while and we are going to go out in the morning and we are going to finish that game and prepare the rv just a bit more. Sunday will be about cleaning the pop-up our first love and listing so large items on Craigslist. We have come so much further in the last month then I thought we ever could. While many details of the life we want are set in stone we still constantly have a mental battle about others. I hope we are shown the way that we should go and the things that we should do. Life may not be perfect but it is perfect for us.
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
