Mother of Emails

 236/366


I've spent all day, no all weekend, clearing out my emails. Apparently, I went a little bonkers ignoring Googles warnings that my account was filling up.  I went 116% over.  And I have SO MANY EMAILS.  Like 32,000 emails to sift through.  So much clutter.  


This cup is perfectly appropriate. 
The kids have been alternating between being amazing and being awful.  
This moment, they are asleep and it's awesome.  But when I took this earlier, I could hear Eric yelling at someone to do their Kumon, while I stayed huddled in my craft room which is where the computer lives now.  It's been a long weekend.  August is hard on kids who are not used to going to school. I could not be more thankful for this cup.   Currently, it is full of water with a dropof an oily oral blend I created which is half orange vitality oil, mostly half wintergreen, and a couple drops Thieves. 1 drop of this makes my mouth and brain feel fresh, and I can keep working.  I've gotten rid of almost 5000 emails today alone.  I hope that soon, I'll get access to my email again!

Blogger Changed but I didn't. Black Eyed Susans


We worked a lot around the house this weekend, so by this afternoon, I didn't have the strength to do much besides sit on the couch.  I introduced the kids to Fantasia.  I kept Eric in water.  I drank a gallon of water all by myself.  I ache.  
Then I took a walk to the mailbox. 
Our Black Eyed Susans are in bloom. 

And when I came to post about them, everything on blogger changed.  
Still have a look at these flowers, maybe they will make us all happy and we won't mind that the whole world is still wonky. 


Close up flower. 

Black eyed Susan bokeh.  
I haven't tried some straight up flower photography for a while.  I really wanted just a smidge more sunlight but on the other hand, these guys were glowing on their own. 


I just loved the angle here, so you can see how big the bush has grown. 


One flower made it into the sun. 
This Susan really glows. <3
