    Default SotD Tuesday, 9 April 2013

    Good morning,

    Spring is here... belated and a tad shy, but bring her in quickly...
    Habit Rouge L'Extrait. I'm eating my words on this and I am not the only Habit Rouge convert here, eh?
    Anyway, I am glad I did participate in a split for this... it was sheer impulse and intuition. Yep, a man can do this, too.



    Have a good day all!

    Good morning Larimar. Good morning everyone. How is the Caligna Lucasai? It sounds intriguing.

    Well, it's nice enough today to be tackling the garden. Will be wearing Peoneve, from a sample.

    Twolf, so sorry to hear the bad news about your friend.

    Thanks to member scent for notifying us that Norma found some vintage Incense.

    Just look at how intense it is. Thats a massive 200ml flacon.

    You can be sure it smells as intense. Tott & I split a bottle.

    Jon, that picture is a whole lotta Green Irish Tweed!

    I liked the picture of the viking ship too, something so compelling about that dark curved hull against the white curved walls.

    Welcome back Rtamara!

    Hugs to you Twolf. So sorry for your pain.

    I gotta say, i was sad to hear of the parties being thrown over the death of Margaret Thatcher. The only thing I can say to that is may we all do enough amazing things in our lives that we rile some people up... and may we be so effective and memorable in our endeavors that those enemies are happy to see us leave. It's really a testament to her ability and her tenacity that still people are passionate about her. If she had been bland and beige no one would care.

    I am testing Entre Naranjos today, and when I first put it on I was sooo unhappy. It was bitter and kind of sour. But now it's turning much creamier. So much so that I was wondering if I was smelling something else left over on my sweater.

    So sorry about your friend, TWolf. It is good he is moving to a calmer environment for the end, and has family and friends around. Even if he seems nonresponsive, love makes a difference.

    It has warmed up here, too. Spring was dragging her feet, and now...bam! It's summer. That's what it's like here, one day you're chilled to the bone, the next day it's time to turn the AC on. I'm cleaning out the laundry room this morning, and then I think I will plant something in the weedy planter outside, maybe some colorful petunias - they can take the heat. Then I have to get ready for my tutoring job. I hope everyone has a beautiful day.

    I'm sampling Tocca Stella this morning.

    I could whine about the weather and the mind-drubbing sameness of indoor routines, but I really shouldn't, given my lot in life as compared to Twolf's friend Larry. It is so sad when fate turns on a dime and puts a person in hospice.

    The morning started with a short but welcome 20 minute rain; so, I chose China Rain in hopes of more rain. Now it's turned to snow, bad for all the fruit tree blossoms, but we need every bit of moisture we can get. It's been so dry for months.

    That's so sad about your friend, Twolf! It's very hard on the families...hard if the person dies, and sometimes harder if they survive in a much-diminished capacity.

    When my daughter was very young, one of our near neighbors had a massive stroke. They fought hard to save him and he eventually reurned home, very impaired, both mentally and physically. His wife struggled to care for him for nearly 10 years at terrible cost to her own health before giving up and having him put into a nearby SNF. And then she visited him daily for several years until he died. She is in her 70s now and finally able to get out and do some enjoyable things, visit her grandchildren in other states etc.

    ExtremeK, I think it was you who asked about whether we found a bed for Mom? After an afternoon of experimentation on various mattresses, I realized her discomfort was due to weight bearing on her right shoulder when lying on her right side (her preferred sleeping position) on a level mattress-- she was significantly more comfortable when lying on a bed that had an electrically adjusting frame with the head elevated. This reduced the pressure on her shoulder.

    So we took her back home, located the large wedge of foam that Dad used to use, and tucked it under her current mattress so that the head is elevated about 20-25 degrees. The result is that for the past 2 nights she has slept very well. She felt so much better yesterday that she took herself for a long walk (indoors, within her residence) and when I called her just now, she was all set to repeat it today. All very positive!

    Sleep is so restorative. I'm starting to feel like myself again today after days and days of sleeping late. This cold knocked me out. I had let myself get run down. No more late nights at the computer!

    Oh, my SotD is Trébol.
