My most favorite scent!
I try to incorporate it into nearly anything in our home; from room sprays, to soaps, to candles...
It instantly relaxes me and makes me feel like yawning.
The above is a beautiful hand made soap I found at a Farmer's Market this weekend..
I also found a handmade Lavender sachet to lay with at the end of a long day..
I'm loving the Weleda Lavender body oil...
I grow French Lavender in our small backyard garden..
The children know it is time to "wash hands" when I whisper to "please pick three pieces"...
they run out back, pick three leaves, and place them in our handwashing bowl..
I wash each child's hands with this water before snack time.
It smells lovely and hopefully gives him good dreams:)
As you can see from the photo above, our home is a bit in shambles this weekend after I've been out of commission due to some nasty food posioning. Friends, it was just terrible. I missed out on so much great food during our family Labor Day picnic, and what's worse...a ton of knitting time with our great friend who was visiting from out-of-town.
I was down for the count and pretty miserable.
Everyone is out for breakfast right now, and I'm home trying to pick up the pieces here.
Somehow, oh somehow, I have also been left with 3+ days worth of poopy diapers to clean...
Oh, because what I really feel like doing is cleaning poo after nearly every and any smell nauseates me.
Hey. I am one of those odd women who actually loves doing chores. I really do, and I know many of you are with me on this! But not when I'm barely able to move. I could use a little help.
-Please put soiled diapers in the wet bag. Not on top of it. Come on now.
-Please flush poo in the toilet? Right? Don't leave it sitting for 3 days thinking I'll get to it when I can walk again?!
-We never leave dirty dishes in the sink. So why are we doing it this weekend?
-Groceries go in the cupboards. They shouldn't remain in the bags, on the counter, all weekend.
The one and only photo of Jay washing a poo diaper a few months ago when I couldn't get my hands wet due to a deep cut. Notice the latex gloves and shirt wrapped around his nose and mouth.
What a WUSS!
Here's a big virtual ::hug:: to all the women and mothers who run their houses!!
Look how everything stops when we...stop.
