    Hi everyone,

    Larimar smelling wonderful in one of my favourites.

    30 Roses gorgeous kitty you have, a big hello from my kitty who is currently hiding in the curtains.

    My lunchtime meeting turned into sampling session of gins and scotches for a tomorrows New Year's eve party. Practising making martinis tonight.

    A splash of Guerlinade for the day. Springtime in Paris, new romance and happiness wrapped up in a gorgeous lilac accord.



    Cuir de Russie EdT tonight.

    Have a wonderful day.

    Well I am just beginning to feel human again after an unusually hectic week. Daughter wants to drive to the mall today (mind you, it's 10:35 and she is still asleep, so we'll see about that!) I'll hold off on fragrance so I can test at the mall, assuming we go.

    There was a lot of black ice earlier but it's too warm for it now. Supposed to drop to single digits tonight, with more very cold weather ahead.

    I've been a bad, bad, bad BNer—not reading or posting for about a week due to sheer laziness (wonderful, decadent, mind-floating, me-centric, uncompromising laziness). It's been great. I really relish a good stretch of staring into space, absent of guilt, flexing muscles used only for daydreaming, getting so lost in thought no mental bloodhound could make sense of my tracks, tethered to reality exclusively by the compulsions to eat and clean and to spout regular confirmations of affection for dear husband, my fellow hermit.

    Some 24, Faubourg on my sleeves for today. I still grimace at the reformulated top notes which should pass in an hour.

    Be well, my sweets.

    Had a great little surprise just now: in going through a bag I had used for the Chicago BN Meet-up, I found a 4 ml Coromandel sample from the Chanel boutique I had completely forgotten about. Whee!

    I've been a little under the weather the last few days, so no scents for me. Today, I'm braving the scented world again, but in something very cuddly and cozy: Un Bois Vanille.

    30 Roses, is that the cat who had recent surgery? He looks very content guarding the tree ... hope he is feeling better!

    So looking forward to my de Profundis sample, Evangeline. Fracas? Never heard of that one, must look it up. Jicky? Wait, I have a vintage sample but I've never smelled it. Guerlain, right? I know I collected my G samples somewhere. Hang on ....got it! Wow, it's sort of chypreish, yes? Not quite. It's an oriental woody and a terrific one. Washing off 24, Faubourg and slathering Jicky on. Have a great evening, all.

    --

    Grabbed wrong sample. That was Maison Francis K (etc) Pour Le Soir I slathered on.

    Good evening. Hectic end to the day today...I kept hearing the well pump coming on, and thought that's odd...Went out to the shed to find that the sink had sprung a leak - the copper pipe to the faucet was squirting water everywhere, so everything in there is soaked...Got the water turned off and tank drained and called a plumber who was able to make a 10 minute, $135 repair, yikes. Anyway, it is fixed for the moment.

    On the positive side, my sister treated me and my kids and boyfriend to a day and night at a fancy resort and a lovely expensive restaurant dinner. A day of lounging at the pool with the "give me the fanciest frozenest drink you have" drink that involved ice cream and strawberry ice and tequila and god knows what else, while the kids splashed and adults hung out and talked. Really nice little vacation.

    Happy end of 2013 to all. It's been a tumultous year for me, and while that is not necessarily bad, it has been on balance exhausting and stressful.

    Today the Mure Et Musc Extreme...I near the end of the big bottle and sadly my fund went to the plumber, but have plenty of lovely scents to wear, no problem there.

    Yes, that is indeed the cat that had surgery-- the site is not visible from that angle.

    He's doing just fine! He can't go outdoors for at least another week (with the severe cold expected, he'd be indoors anyway) and we blocked access to his tower to discourage jumping, which could reopen the wound. Meanwhile he is bored and constantly looking for things to divert him. He pats on my leg to summon me to play with him.
