Spring, ants and Luna...

 I received some awesome Mother's Day gifts this year, among them this bag. Now if you haven't heard of Luna the Fashion Kitty, you might want to go check her out. She is pretty famous as a fashionista and even has her own facebook page. There are some utube videos of her as well. In fact, there seems to be a whole underworld of pets on facebook and utube. Interesting!
I have been working on my flowers and garden a little here and there. I have some flowers planted now and the garden almost ready for tomatoes. I bought them a few weeks ago, but knew I wouldn't have time to plant them so planted them in a pot until I did. Otherwise they would be dead by now because I would've forgotten to water them. They are doing well. We have had rain the past few days so everything looks good. 

I am having my usual springtime battle with ants in the kitchen. It is so frustrating. He sprays outside, I put traps inside, yet we still get them every spring. I put out ant traps a few weeks ago, and hadn't seen any until yesterday so thought that maybe I got them as they came in. No such luck.  So put out a 2nd kind of trap, so we'll see if that helps. Any tips, I'm listening.

Borax is the natural type of ant killer. If you search 'natural ant killer' there are a couple sites that will give you recipes. One uses plastic containters with holes punched in the lids. I think you have pets though so you would have to be careful.

I heard if you put baking soda out they will eat it and it will expand and blow up the ants. Worth a try and it's something you should have in the house. Sounds like the rain/water is driving them in.
