What to do when your lemon balm flowers? Snip it so growth goes back into the leaves....
Then add it to your family Altar for calm peace (which I really need right now).
Turns out dragons blood candle wards off Alabama mosquitoes. ...
I got off work early due to low numbers (fewer kids at school today). So I went to the grocery store, met a new friend on facebook, and spent some quality time outside. Lyn is with me but as any 15 year old we are within earshot not actually spending "time" together. She is sketching. I am meditating and pretending to catch up on reading.
Life is good.
Did I mention I found a new meditation spot? It is awesome....

Etta nursing strong at 7 months old. She is tired and ready for bed and really didn't want her picture taken.
Evan wanted to pick out an oil for bedtime. I had him look through the product guide and read about each oil. He picked out Dreamcatcher EO. Love my dreamer.....

I debated on whether or not to renew my certification. It was a bit pricey with us penny pinching so much nowadays but to be one of only a few (20,000 or so) who hold this title in the country I had to renew. I am proud to help mother's through their breastfeeding journey.

Lyn was so excited to get her new kitten. He is black with 6 toes on each front paw. We had a mini road trip to pick him up from a friend. The little kids are so excited but he needs some quiet time to bond with his new human mama before they really get a hold of him.

Elaina wasn't really into her birthday party today. She did insist on putting the dress Granny got her on. Poor 2 year old woke up from her nap and was the center of attention and it put her in a bad mood.
I have been wanting to hang some herbs to dry for a long time on my porch. Part of the process is medicinal. Part is spiritual. Part is meditative and a way of protecting my home. Any way you look at it it felt good to have them in sight drying in the hot shade of my porch.
