    Spent 5 minutes staring at my perfume trying to decide what to wear around noon, four hours later I'd already forgotten. Had to go back and stare again to work out which bottle I picked up - turns out it was Sun, Moon and Stars.

    Hope everyone's enjoying their weekend

    Good Morning.

    Noa by Cacharel today.

    Read about it in Perfumes the Guide and was intrigued. btw this is a perfect book for the distracted. I can put it down get something for my Mom (she is doing better - out of the hospital and starting rehab). pick it up again and it doesn't even matter if I am on the same page.

    I checked out a nearby fragrance outlet store yesterday and they had Noa. I bought the small one on the basis of a quick sample. Full wearing today. I like it.

    Was wearing Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin but, and you could have knocked me over with an inflatable stick, i found myself craving a floral, so scrubbed the Malone and am now wearing Tocca Touch.

    Up to now, I've been a floral hater...so this is big time!

    Somehow I felt very energetic all day today -- I know, I will probably pay for it by the aching back, arms and legs tomorrow -- came from work, fixed dinner and dug up the whole garden by myself (Yeah, I have a small patch of flowers and herbs that I proudly call "garden"). Daisies are already in full bloom, I planted them from seeds one year and they spread like a weed all over the place and many of my co-workers are enjoying them little sunshines. Dill and cilantro were growing all winter long, they are diehards. But everything else required TLC and they got it today. Now I need some good rain, a few bags of fertilizer and I am set!

    Anyhow, wearing a hand cream, an eye cream and a few sprays of Salvatore Ferragamo. Mission accomplished!
