    Default SOTD: Wednesday 7th November 2012

    Good morning fragrant ones,

    How are we today? I am In a very chipper mood, I don't really know why lol

    I have a day off today so I'm not sure what I will be doing with myself.

    But I will be smelling uber sexy in my latest vintage find...dior - Fahrenheit. I cannot believe how different it is to the current formulation.

    Anyway, have a splendid day!

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Feel better, ((Foustie))!

    Daughter finally went back to school, but it's convening in a local theater as her high school is still being repaired from the hurricane damage. Weird! Meanwhile a new Nor'easter is expected today.

    I have bills to pay for Mom and then am going over to watch a movie with her. Then to take daughter to her doctor in the afternoon. Busy day.

    The day calls for a cozy comfort scent: Jour de Fête.

    So sleepy today, stayed up too late watching election results and waiting for speeches. I kept getting whiffs of something that reminded me of lilacs when I was out running this morning, so picked Pur Desir de Lilas.

    Hey, what a delightful coincidence ...both parfum and edt, imagine that! Well, then again, given my tendency to wear Chanel for ballet, and your supreme adoration of Bois des Îles, maybe it's not such a coincidence ...but I still see it as a rather auspicious little event, and an honor.

    But that's all gone now, and I'm in 8e Jour for the afternoon.

    I've missed being online with my fave 'fumed peeps. Smooches! I fragranced only a smidge at bedtime this past week cuz my mind's been elsewhere during the day. Today, however, I joined Daniel in the I New York series, wearing Mothers.

    For the teasingly skeptical Foustie (get well, babe), here's photographic proof that I've really been doing what I claimed -- moving over 4 tons of materials. (Yes, Lilybelle, you remember correctly. I bought those pavers about a year ago.)



    ^^^ The highly skilled Mr. Quarry cut through a stone wall and installed the service door. He also laid the Cream City brick half-wall (seen at right) and poured the concrete threshold to my dad's former tractor garage. It was moi's job to raise the grade about 10 inches and pitch the paving to accommodate wheelchair access to the door (because I think that's prudent for every home).


    ^^^ & vvv For fill, I sledgehammered concrete blocks and puzzle-pieced concrete chunks left over from the demolition of another garage.



    ^^^ & vvv Once the large fill was down, I toted in sand to fill the voids, screeded, and tamped.



    vvv Determined not to have an obvious pattern like herringbone or running bond, I went a bit loony laying a random pattern. Now, if we should ever need it, a wee ramp can be made to align with the door.

    Reglisse Noire today. Prefectly suited for the cold (don't laugh, anything under 70F counts as cold here) and the gray dress. Or as someone said, 'nothing says refined french elegance like gray' (and Reglisse Noire!)

    That is gorgeous work, Quarry! Smart you to make it accessible/easy to adapt to a ramp!

    Our Nor'easter has stalled, hanging out over the area and dumping more snow than originally predicted. The 3" we were told to expect is now already 10" and climbing at the rate of 1"/hour. I'm sure they will have to cancel school tomorrow and my husband is thinking he may need to stay home also, to help us clear it out. We have a self-propelled snowblower and shovels, but we can't get the snowblower up the hill from the shed to the driveway when the snow is this deep.

    edit: Midnight and still snowing! 12" deep at least at this point.

    30 Roses, I wish I could send you some of the weird mini heatwave we've been having this week! It's been in the high 80's and topped around 90 or so on Sunday and Monday.

    Quarry, congrats on the lovely project! The floor looks fantastic and the random pattern is beautiful! It probably also expands the space visually more than a patterned floor. That must have been so much effort, but it looks well worth it!

    SotD was Amethyst, inspired by the berry-sweet Whitefluffy!

    Carven Homme tonight
    Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
    Like days of old. Lighting the spark of love that fills me
    with dreams untold..--Twilight Time
