    It will be reaching the low mid 90s today so I will be wearing Guerlain Sous Le Vent.

    Hopefully England can pull off a third place finish against Belgium today.

    Seville a l'Aube to calm me down, whilst looking around a property my
    youngest son has had an offer accepted on!! To say it is a doer-upper is an understatement
    but at least he got it for a good price. Hopefully, he will turn it into a nice place to live.

    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..."

    Good morninhg, everyone!

    I'm finally feeling sorta close to baseline (I don't even know what "normal" is anymore . . .)--I got enough sleep, I'm not in pain (huzzah!) and it seems like everything else is as it should be. Dang, I hope this lasts.

    It's a lovely summer morning and still not very hot outside. I'm wearing Si Lolita and feeing enveloped by heliotrope yumminess.

    Staying inside today, pretending it's winter. I have my hot hazelnut coffee (side note, I couldn't smell the hazelnut note in RL Woman until I wore it while drinking my coffee last week! Perhaps "hazelnut coffee creamer accord" would be more accurate?), a comfy wool sweater, and Boyfriend by Kate Walsh. I never tried the original, but when it was announced that Boyfriend was returning, a lot of people in FB Fragrance Friends got so excited! I thought, "wait, Kate Walsh, is that McDreamy's ex-wife?" and then promptly ordered a sample (along with a 1.7 oz bottle of Billionaire Boyfriend for $3.99--but this is not the place to talk about that).

    Well, it smells like Heaven. Of course, Heaven could be that proverbial peaceful afterlife, the name of a confident, classy, high-end stripper, or an impossibly complex and unique dessert made with Amazonian tree sap and tropical honey and featured on Chef's Table. Boyfriend has a little of all three, and I'm enjoying it so far. It's an intoxicating mix of vanilla, myrrh, and amber, is pretty linear, and is much sweeter than I usually prefer. I think it will be FB-worthy especially since it's quite affordable, but I'm on the fence. I'll either tire of it quickly or pine for it constantly (but that's true of most fragrances I guess).

    Anyway, happy Saturday everyone! I may just watch a Christmas movie and keep pretending like it's not July in Texas.

    Just got to stay positive. Hopefully there's still some good that could come after tomorrow's match.
