    I'm following everyone’s weather reports from across the sea and closer to home. Stock up, stay put, stay warm, stay dry.
    I trust that Evangeline’s wise and capable family will endure exemplarily.
    Twolf’s extended absence has me concerned.

    Matildaben, with whom I will be meeting up for the 4TH! time in just 34 more days (number from the countdown widget on my Kindle), sent me this news link: miss-piggy-calls-on-vivienne-westwood-to-design-her-wedding-gown

    Photo by Disney, gown by Vivienne Westwood.
    While that gown may call for Boudoir or Libertine, today this BNer is wearing weird Marni.

    Hello everyone!

    (((mike))). I get deep blue (shall we say, navy?) from time to time myself. Sometimes the blues are just plain hard to beat. I read The Power of Now last year (followed by A New Earth, but The Power of Now was better) and found Tolle's techniques for mindfulness to be incredibly helpful in my life. I thought the section on the pain body was fascinating. Crazy how much of a conscious commitment mindfulness requires.

    danieq, glad to hear your friends are doing better and are still hopeful that someday they will have a child. You and your husband have certainly been a blessing for them during this time.

    kumquat, what a gorgeous photograph. Perfect for your wearing of Ivoire. You smell wonderful!

    Xscent, the 3 c's (cheese, cab, and Casablanca) sound like the makings of a terrific evening.

    Missing Wolfie and Elizrj!

    I am officially snowed in thanks to winter storm Pax. It has completely derailed my travel plans to go home to Kentucky to see my mom for her surgery and meet my brother's fiancé - I would be heading right through the heart of the storm. So instead, I stocked up on coffee, wine and baguettes and should be good to go for a couple days. Going to make pizza for dinner and snuggle up with the Rockstar for a movie night.

    In 31 Rue Cambon today, and darn if I don't smell fantastic.

    Erin; that sounds like a perfect evening to me. Maybe you are just meant to spend time on yourself for the moment. Enjoy!

    Jon; l was wondering about the Scilly lsles. We don't get to see on the news how things are there, but it must be pretty frightening being as exposed to the storms as they are. The weather where l live has not been quite as apocalyptic as expected today, but l know others haven't been so lucky.

    I went home for lunch & I applied the very last of my sample of Addict also teardrop. Gosh this stuff just smells so good. It reminds me, oddly, of Must by Cartier.

    Thanks everyone. I'm feeling great today, and I have another post-work trip the gym planned tonight. No winter storm here, but it did start raining.

    Mike, I have very similar experiences -- in my head too much, not feeling my feelings, etc. Exercise and especially yoga help me a lot. I've cried more times than I can count during the end relaxation part of yoga, and last night I cried while stretching after my treadmill stint. It's like it all gets gummed up and exercise helps bust it up and get it out. However it works, I'm grateful.

    Sounds like a perfect night to me, ErinK. Give Rocky a neck snurfle and a kiss from me.

    I'm taking tonight off and then going to yoga tomorrow. I refreshed my L'Eau d'Hiver at noon. I love this one.

    ErinK, Thank you for liking my photo, my horse, and my smile! And you smell fantastic!!!
    Quarry, Nordic temperatures... It was freezing...
    Mike Perez, Thank you for the link, I will destroy the top and decant as soon as I have a suitable bottle
    Nothing better to drive the blues out than a good session at the gym. They did some research on that, better than Prozac. Much better. And you will find your dreamrabbit.
    teardrop, my horse is even prettier, this isn't the best photo
    Xscent, I think it's super scary, riding side saddle. But that makes me only more determined to do it! If we get to go to London I will let you know!
    Jon, your report sound scary! Hope you are ok. It makes me think of Mike Watson reporting for the EBC in ''The Kraken wakes''
    Danieq, Thank you glad to read that your friends are doing better.

    Weather Dallas: the sun has come out after days of ''Dutch''-style weather, and it is a lot warmer too

    Today my SotD was Soir de lune, the last of my decant, I so need to get back to my stash in the Netherlands!

    Just a great picture, perfect colors and I adore 50s fashions

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    I'm wearing Chanel no5 today. It is becoming my go-to fragrance on days when I can't decide on something.

    It is warming up a bit here and we had sunshine! Hopefully, all the snow will melt soon ...

    hugs to all ...

    Mike, Thanks for asking. My husband is all better, and our daughter escaped the bug-- so we're just resting now, watching Olympics and getting ready for the storm that's due after midnight.

    We're supposed to get 8-12" this time, snow, ice, the whole deal. I think I'm actually getting somewhat inured to it.

    Thanks to bogsc, Feminite de Bois got me through the day; my impression: skanky wood nymph.

    I shall try Fidji tonight, opening that little vial with care, as I was warned it contains propellant. I did sniff from the vial, and the opening reminds me of my beloved Weil de Weil, an uncompromising 70s green.
