Taking Stock

Keira Lennox Firewalker Sunflowers Painted in Waterlogue

Making : progress on our flower shop move to-do list. We’re less than two months out, and besides a refrigeration guy telling me our old walk-in cooler may not survive another relocation (awesome) it’s all coming up roses.
Hoping : someone’s selling a decent walk-in cooler on Craigslist…
Baking : #pumpkineverything! I love this recipe for pumpkin muffins with dark chocolate chips; and I just bookmarked these healthy breakfast cookie recipes to try this weekend.
Reading : Bette Davis’ autobiography, The Lonely Life, that I found at the used bookstore. I just finished (and really enjoyed) What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty.
Playing : WordBrain.
Enjoying : slightly cooler weather; but it will probably be a while until we can knock the dust off our sweaters around here.
Listening : to a lot of Van Morrison lately. #thisis30
Liking : The Pioneer Woman’s kitchen collection for Walmart. I want to stock my cupboards with her colorful printed bowls.
Loving : evening marathons of Parks and Recreation on Netflix.
Bookmarking : 20 concealer hacks every woman should know.
Smelling : the dried lavender I nabbed from the flower shop. It’s amazing how one small bundle can fill the house with calming fragrance.
Wearing : Lollia ‘Relax’ perfume, my everyday favorite.
Giggling : at how on-point ‘What You Wore to Homecoming In The Early 2000s‘ is.
Feeling : happy. Fall just does that to a girl.

    It’s amazing how you’re saying fall makes you feel happy, it must be the climate in the area you reside in. I usually feel slightly sad and later even a little bit depressed because late fall is usually nasty in Ontario, Canada, the same goes for the land of my origin Latvia. Working in a flower shop must be great, especially if you sketch, paint or photograph flowers and are excited bout new designs. Interesting blog!

    I have my lavender incense burning right now.

    When I was younger, I was not so fond of the smell of lavender. Now it’s one of my favorites!

    Funny how time changes things.
