Facing a New....Reality....?

    It’s insane to think that two weeks ago life went on in its own hectic. We rushed about from work and back. We hit the gym, then the store.....waking up before 5 am every day to start the cycle again. The kids thankfully were on spring break, which only really meant one less stop on this crazy train.
    Slowly a new virus started to push our way....I don’t think life got slower at that point. Perhaps more surreal would be a better explanation of it. We still did the things we normally did, but maybe with a bit more precaution. We wiped our machines down at the gym a bit more, we washed our hands and extra time but life went on. Then the schools announced they were closing for three weeks......ok we’ve homeschooled before we will do what we can. We awaited word of work closing, but, whether by the grace of God or bad luck work went on. The environment was odd to say the least. Everyone taking added precautions to ensure their own health. Nerves were short, tension was so thick we could cut it with a knife. Our jobs began to lay-off and thankfully, to save us financial stress, we were both considered essential employees.
      So every day now we still sit and watch new cases pop up across the country. People dying, families suffering both physically, emotionally, and financially. We are left with more free time working nearly half of what I had been in a month I decided maybe it is time to start blogging again. We are told this could last through summer! So instead of being in denial it is time to start facing our new reality.
    Today we will be setting up our rv for an emergency quarantine location, if heaven forbid one of us should fall ill. What are you doing during this time? How are you doing?

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

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 li

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.
