    Good Morning all,

    what a beautiful day in London!

    Have to wear Une Rose today.......have a great day everybody!

    sea roses

    Having problem uploading photos so this is a song with glorious photos of flowers in it

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL011-59beY

    the lyrics are these and are a bit confused

    Beautiful day

    Beautiful day with glance of joy
    Colours all around and hopes for us,
    Life is a present but I forget it often.(my interpretation of song :we forget the gift of life)

    In the sky God’s nest (My interpretation: God is watching over us)
    And even if we’re not both birds. (difficult as this could mean even if yet we are not in paradise or able to fly there)
    I enjoy the day and I smile.

    Talk to me with tender voice,(be kind to me, don't speak in harsh voices or say mean things, our souls need to be soothed)
    Don’t ruin this day
    With a word of yours, a syllable,
    Don’t target me, soul asks for a caress,
    You can make it, only you.

    Beautiful day, the voices of the people
    They reach to my ears like the Sundays,(on Sundays people usually are singing because of church and family gatherings which is always beauty)
    It looks like spring, life looks like truth.

    As if the light doesn’t show any more the wounds, (our troubles look lesser when we look around)
    It found a way to enter to our souls.
    Everything is the same but they don’t look like habit anymore.(nothing has changed, but to see the world differently...in a good way)

    Talk to me with tender voice,
    Don’t ruin this day
    With a word of yours, a syllable,
    Don’t target me, soul asks for a caress,
    You can make it only you.
    When we come to the other world and meet the millions of Jews who died in the camps and they ask *what have you done for us*.......I will say * I did not forget you*. Simon Wiesenthal

    Hello everyone -

    Nice song, Sea Roses - you are in a good mood! It's currently a bit overcast, but I'm playing tennis a little later so I'm hoping a beautiful day emerges here, too. I'm in Chamade, a generous splash of vintage edc ...simply gorgeous.

    Y'all have a great day!

    Good morning everyone! I'm so excited for it to be the weekend. I've been surviving on very little sleep all week and I'm going to sleep in til noon tomorrow and catch up! It's grey and cold here, so I'm in two grey sweaters and Keiko Mecheri Gourmandises from the sample pile in Chicago. It made me hope for something cozy and sweater-ish. I'm getting the cozy, but it's not a sweater... it's a bit more of an exotic animal than that.

    Hope everyone's having a great day. I've been awfully busy but still reading through SOTD and smiling at you all

    Oh, Quarry, loved the pic yesterday! And 30Roses, ouch, $5k for the boiler It's so much more fun to put money into pretty things for your house, but hard to enjoy them if you're freezing and underwater!

    Loved all the pretty pictures yesterday and hoping to see some from SeaRoses trip! *hint hint, nudge nudge*

    Sea Roses, what lovely lyrics. I have not listened to the song but those are such beautiful, tender words.

    Yum, meow7, you smell great! That is one of my favorites. It is so juicy and happy and romantic all at once. Definitely a good mood scent!

    I am in Van Cleef & Arpels First from my sample sent by a BN friend. I love love love this and a bottle is officially on my wish list! Always will think of cello and Evangeline (loved that sweet Christmas story) when I wear this.

    elizrj, yes, Hubby is talking about raiding his IRA to replace the boiler now (he's over 59, so no penalty), but he wants to talk to the technician that examined it to get the details first.

    Daughter submitted her first-ever college application last night online, to one of her 2 safety schools ("Early Action" option, which is non-binding.) But she is also starting to think about applying to a local college (my alma mater) and commuting, which she really didn't want to do earlier on. I'm glad she's considering all her options.

    No SotD yet as I'm baking cookies and enjoying the smell too much.

    30 Roses…exciting about your daughter! We've been talking about the college stuff too. Our girls are growing up so fast.

    We're back from the doctor's office. Sofie has pneumonia & is finally on antibiotics. Still coughing, feverish & feeling lousy but at least now she has a chance to get better.

    I never made it to my Chamade, had to run out when the pediatrician could see us.

    So, I'm going with Amouage Opus III instead.
