Ugh....I just saw this big roach in my bathroom. Took me by complete surprise since I thought they go into hibernation when it's cold outside. 😕


So I figured it's probably because I've been keeping the heater on....and they're wanting to come in because it's warm in my house.


And here I was thinking I wouldn't have to worry about those things because of the weather. 😭


Cleanliness is really not a part of keeping roaches at Bay. Someone in your neighborhood has bred them and continues to do so.

The only thing you can do is use pesticides to keep them away. Both the eggs and the bugs...

At every entrance (like plumbing lines) windows, doors, and vents put some spray. Expensive exterminators are wonderful...they have the good stuff that requires a license to use. But their effect is usually short lived by design.

I remember the good ol days when we could use things like DDT and other things that lasted...but they were horrible for the environment. Oh well.

Simple solution -- turn off the heat, open the doors and windows and maybe they'll want to go back outside?

Do not buy take out food. Lived in NYC for 20+ years, no roaches, the secret is don't bring take out food from restaurants home.

The day I start to see mice/rats in my house is the day I'm officially done.


I have a field back behind my house, so I know where the mice are coming from in My house. But it’s hard to catch them when they KNOW you set out Traps. They are not stupid, they‘re smarter than we think they are, so…. I don’t know how many we have, but occasionally when I clean the kitchen there’s droppings behind my cookware and other things.

lovely right? 🙄

Anyhoo… happy thanksgiving everyone

Dunkin Donuts started in Boston the year I was born.
People think I'm imagining things when I talk about honey dip donuts.

I love Dunkin' Donuts. I'll take a dozen of those honey dips too. Might need a coffee too with a shot of espresso. Double shot.

I got the coconut candies also dipped today.
So all total that's 4dozen (at least) of 7 different varieties of truffle...five more to go. Yes...that's over 300 pieces of candy I've made today. I'm about ⅓ finished with candy as I've got more of the Nashville contingent to finish before I start on the Georgia group.

But I've not got much of the cookies done yet...I've only got two batches of toll house baked. I've got a bunch of the decorative shortbread ready to slice and bake of checkerboard and swirls...no sandwich cookies yet.

But I can knock them out fast fast fast.

But my MIL called today(from Georgia) to put in her order for what candies she claims are her favorites.

But in the meantime I've got pumpkin and pecan pies in the oven.
You are quite the baker and connoisseur of confections.

I wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving dinner today...

I'm about to face my execution....er I mean meet my family so I can cook Thanksgiving dinner for them...so they can tell me how I don't do anything right. Can you tell I'm not exactly expecting it to go well?

Peanut butter has been the key to success for me.
YMMV?

They have outsmarted us… they know what it means to have peanut butter laying around. so I might as well get a certain trap (no matter how inhumane it might be) and just put a blob of peanut butter right in the middle and catch it that way.

not sure what else to do lol

That is very frustrating to slave over a hot stove for hours to cook a fantastic dinner that people are critical about.
