Ants Be Gone...Maybe? And a Giveaway!

As a fabulous blogger, I am afforded with many opportunities to test and write reviews for products. And I love that aspect of blogging. I think the people need to know the truth! So here I am to deliver to you my truth.

Products of the day

Combat Source Kill MAX
Now when I originally got sequestered (is that the right word?) to do this review I saw ants. Since receiving the kit in the mail...things changed. I guess all the rain we were getting washed the ants away! I even planted an open, licked lollipop to see if they would swarm! They didn't swarm!

So that left me to ask around if somebody else had issues with ants. Apparently every body's ants got washed away! I did use the gel in hopes that these earwigs that always find a way into my house would eat it, take back home, and die.

Has it worked? Not for the earwigs. They still find their way in. So here is what I can tell you...

As far as the gel goes, I was really expecting more to be in that little tube. I put in in front of my door where I have occasionally seen ants (before the monsoon swept them away) and here is the area it covered. But maybe I squeezed too much out...
yep, that's it.

I was, however, quite pleased that the gel isn't BLACK! I've bought roach gel before and that black icky stuff is less that visually pleasing. A few days later I still see the gel there. I hope some insects have a feast. And die from gluttony. That's harsh and I know they all provide balance to our ecosystem...but until you visit my house and really understand the magnitude of creatures I have to deal with, don't judge me!

And I mean that with all the sweetness inside my heart! for the ant baits, I was happy to see those. They replaced these baits that have been in my house since I moved in 5 years ago!

I understand that the scent is supposed to lure the ants, make them eat, and take it back to the colony and KILL THE QUEEN. I'm a little dramatic today, forgive me! I did not like the smell! I apparently have an ant nose because I had to put the box down for a minute. But I do have an overly sensitive nose and usually smell things others don't. I put them in the corners and crevices anyway. So far no traffic.

Life and its accomplishments should be celebrated. My friend retired. He left me and now I’m all alone. Not really lol, but he was surely something special to me. I imagine he will spend many days on various golf courses and he will learn new ways let his chickens entertain him. I’ll definitely stay in touch for the eggs! (Joke!)
In honor of his second retirement, we threw him a party. He protested. He did NOT want a party. He thought he didn’t want a party. I’m sure he’s as happy as a hen that he let us do it for him. He was scared no one would come, but they did! And he was overjoyed and overwhelmed with love. Aside from coordination duties, I wanted to make him a few things from my heart. I made him golf themed cupcakes, a loaded chicken salad, shrimp and black bean caviar and punch. There was a tremendous amount of food. We tend to equate love with food, so he should know just how much we care.
In his farewell speech he told a room full of people that 1. I am his soul mate (but not …

Black Panther: Movie Review

Please tell me y'all have seen the movie? If you haven't, don't read this post!

Let me give you a little bit of my back story on this Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am a Marvel fan. I don't read the comics, but the movies?! I'm here for them. Some of them are blah, but I watch them anyway. Why? Because usually they overlap and share stories. So, in preparation for the opening of Black Panther, I watched ALL of the Marvel movies in order of the stories, not the release date. I followed CNET's guide and it was pretty accurate. I did not watch the TV shows because I would still be watching. You don't have to. The movies will fill you in pretty well.

Now, for what I thought.

1. This movie was beautiful! The colors, the wardrobes, the technology, the natural hair, the beautiful black people that starred in this film, it was amazing!

2. The women. OMG. The WOMEN! The strong women in the movie inspired me. Okoye makes me want to shave my hair back off. Nakia makes …

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

Broccoli and Cheese Soup.
This was a big hit! It was my first tim…
