We are besieged! It’s been raining non-stop for days and days, and what that means are hordes of ants running for cover. Our kitchen is over-run. I mixed up an anti-ant spray using vinegar, dish soap, water, and cinnamon. The vinegar and soap kill them. The cinnamon’s supposed to keep new ones from entering, but it doesn’t seem to work. Why am I mentioning this? Because of the first item in this week’s plastic tally:
Non-recyclable items used this week but purchased before the plastic project began:

They are agents of Satan or maybe spies for George Bush. Besides appeasing them with their own bowl of sugar and killing the ones that appear on the counters with vinegar and soap, what else can I do??? (And no, I’m not going to buy poisoned ant traps or sprays.)
