Thankful Thursday

     Recently I have been feeling a little bit down. I think it is hitting me that this year I will be a housewife, and honestly that is a word I never liked. So I decided that I needed to start back up Thankful Thursdays and remember what I am truly thankful for because honestly there is so much that I have that so many people do not. Most importantly I am thankful for a place to rest my head safely at night, and the food we fill our stomachs with every day. I have three beautiful children and a husband who has supported me for nearly eight years in any venture that I wanted to take on, not matter how crazy that was. This week I have something new to be thankful for that is bringing me hope. My middle son as many of you know suffers from many learning disorders and seizures. The medication they have him on seemingly doing no good I can't get the doctor to even check or change it despite his increasingly aggressive behavior. While the doctor insists that it isn't the medication my motherly instinct said something was wrong. We were blessed to receive a sponsor for Mannarelief this week which provides him with Manna Tech products which seem to be working! He is now seizure medication free(yes without the doctor knowing but he won't contact me) his personality has improved so much in just a couple short days, he slept so great last night and his skin is even clearing a bit! I know many of you do not know him. In fact most of you but he has struggled his entire life with these issues and he is seeing relief :*) what a blessing this week has been.

Homemade Fly Traps

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

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
