How to Prevent Ticks

Our dog Jompyong.
Tick bites can be harmful to animals and humans. These external parasites feed on the blood of their hosts and need to be taken care of as quickly as possible. Professional tick treatment is available. These pests can be treated quickly, but the best course of action is prevention. Stopping them before they spread diseases is always the right choice. 

Look Out for Your Pets

There are tick sprays and collars that you can put on your pets to keep them safe. You do not want them to get a disease from ticks or to pass ticks to you and your family. By shielding your pet from ticks, you are also keeping your home and family safe. 

Watch Out for Trees

Ticks thrive in shady and moist areas. You want to have these areas pre-treated to deter ticks. You should make sure that you never pile up tree debris too close to your home or deck. Do not build playgrounds in areas with a lot of surrounding trees either. Ticks do not do well in sunny spaces, so try to clear out the land right around your home for additional safety. 

Lawn Care

Ticks like to hide in tall grasses and in leave piles. You want to keep your yard mowed and get rid of leaf litter. Your yard will look good and ticks will stay away from your property if they have no reason to be drawn to it. 

Look for Them

The best way to stop ticks is to stop them before they attach to people or pets. Search fences and brick walls for signs of these pests. You want to make sure that these areas are pre-treated by professionals to stop ticks quickly. 


Call professionals to prevent ticks. They can spray a barrier around your property that will kill ticks on contact. Experts can also implement other methods like tick tubes to make sure that you do not have to worry about ticks affecting your health and comfort. 

Ticks can be a tricky problem. It is always smart to bring in a professional company to take care of your needs fast and efficiently. Ticks can be prevented or treated so that you can have a normal life without having to worry about these disease carrying pests invading your property.

Lunch Date And Karaoke With Friends

Pink flowers.
I went to see some of my girl friends last week.  I didn't expect that it would be like a big luncheon.  My friend hosted a luncheon at her house.  She prepared a big pot of rice, baked spare ribs, vegetable soup with pork, and sauteed shrimp.  The food was delicious.  Our children were playing in the backyard, just having a great time like their mothers. :)

After lunch, my friend started the karaoke.  I haven't sang karaoke in a while.  It was like a concert in the middle of the afternoon. :)

We had so much fun.  I was glad to see my friends and had a good time together even in a simple party.

Comfortable Footwear At Home

My pair of Nike Comfort Thong Sandals
I love lazy Sundays.  I just like to be in my lounge wear and I also love wearing my Nike Slip-ons with memory foam and comfort footbed.  They're very comfortable and my feet feels relaxed.  I am on my feet most of the time because I play with my child and do household chores, too.  My feet feels cold easily especially when I am on barefoot.  That is why I always wear house slippers.  

I bought this pair for $12 from Kohls I think two years ago.  I think the retail price now ranges from $24-$30 a pair.

Enjoy Life Because Life Is Good

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend.  Super hot or no? Here in Texas we're getting really high temperatures again.  Well, it's summer so there's nothing new about that. :)

We went visited the folks this weekend.  Just me and and DD because my dear husband stayed home for he did some yard work and relaxed after stressful work last week.  The grass was so high that some of them were almost 3 feet high.  

As usual we had a great time at Mom and Dad's. Mom made some Beef and Broccoli stir fry and fried rice for dinner.  And a very good sweet iced tea.  We were so full.  Then we head out to the patio and visit.

"Let's sit here and enjoy life," Dad said.  Ah, life is good.
