Ebb & Flow: July 2019

The highs and lows of the month.

Wylde Ivy Green Lady

Perfume Oil:
Blood Moon Botanica Summer Dreams Conceived in Winter Days

Future Primitive The Ancients

B. Perry Studios Cinnabar

Skin Care:
Kore Herbals Rune exfoliation scrub

Trader Joe's Coconut Body Cutter

Sihaya & Company It's Practically Magic

The Bathing Garden Deadly Sleeping Draught

Eggs, Rainier cherries, All-Dressed Ruffles. But not all at once.

Coffee, water, kombucha. Loving the GTS Mango kombucha.

The Office, Stranger Things 3, and our wedding video.

Old Jimmy Buffet albums and lots of rain. 

I finally finished House of Leaves and boy howdy was it intense. I am now reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. I had to go non-fiction about food in order to clear my head space a little from the House book. Yikes. Spooky.

My first paychecks so I can get a nightstand and finish the flower bed by the front door.

Finding a primary care physician for the girls, Adam and I. 

My new Achy Joints Creation wooden shelf in the shape of mountains. I cannot wait to blog about it!

Home Depot's color matching paint program. Close but not close enough to paint over patches in the walls.

A little bit of nervousness for starting my new job and thinking about beginning my Montessori training on top of that. But no big lows.

Getting the house in order. Planting plants. Painting rooms. Playing records. Just enjoying my new nest. 

How was your July? Was it as fast as mine? Did you get some sun?


  1. July was pretty good for me. Still some frustration but in new areas. I'll take it over the previous situation though! LOL We had plenty of sun here, and I got too much of it while mowing the lawn one day. :(

    Can't wait to hear more about this shelf! :P


    1. I am glad it was mostly a better month!! I am rooting for you guys to get a groove that feels good. I saw you posting some fall Walmart photos!!! WOOT!

      I hear ya on the sun. I hope you didn't get burned. I have been in the yard for the past few days planting some canna lilies along the garage and my skin is getting some sun for sure.

      I am posting a house tour tomorrow and the sign will be featured! Once I get some plants trailing I will happily do a full feature. It won't take too long since I have some plants in mind. I just need that first paycheck.
