    Good morning all !. Torrential rain and gales outside and I am breathing a sigh of relief that I have a day off today. The journey to work would have been a real delight battling against the elements with only an umbrella for protection. Instead, bone-idleness, teardropesque pottering and an early wine o'clock will be the order of the day. In the meantime we will be conjuring up a lemon meringue pie - the new year health kick continues but one mini lapse shouldn't do too much harm


    Caffeine kick start under way !.





    A complete no brainer for today's synch and I already have a scent twin

    What a cold, blustery, wet old day it is outside!
    I have no desire to venture out at all.
    Baking sounds like a good option, Jon. I may rustle up some
    banana bread.

    Sort of synching with Bombay Bling (same continent anyway.)

    Thumbs up Re: SOTD: Friday, 8th February, 2019

    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 morning! Jon, your day sounds absolutely wonderful.

    Synching in Ormonde Jayne Frangipani from a sample. It has been mostly Linden blossoms and lime to this point, but now I think the frangipani is starting to peek through.

    Have a fabulous Friday, everyone!

    Hi, folks!

    Well, I *wanted* to be scent siblings with Jon and Donna, but using the Sync as an excuse to finally buy a mini of my Wishlist fragrance Boucheron Jaipur Saphir didn't quite work out as it hasn't arrived from eBay yet. But I made a lucky guess in Ajmal Musk Emirates because even though the perfumer is now based in Dubai, founder Ajmal Ali was a native of India! Musk Emirates is a very light and slightly sweet musk.

    Otherwise, I'm riding coffee o'clock 'til wine o'clock rolls around today.

    Fantastic Friday everyone!
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Every word of this post gave me extraneous pleasure, but especially the "bone-idleness, teardropesque pottering."

    You Brits sound like you're imprisoned by the weather, which leads me to say, Shycat, I know that fantasy of being locked away. I suspect it's because some of us struggle with three powerful, often conflicting drives: fixing/caring for the world, nurturing ourselves, and guilt. If we're confined to a situation where we can only look after ourselves, then there's no guilt for indulging our preferred pursuits. Tell me if I'm wrong.

    Electrician is coming back this afternoon. He's limited in his progress again by the weather. Found out he's single and 39 (same age as our daughter). His business has perfect Yelp reviews, so I'm debating playing matchmaker. Giving this more thought.

    I should choose Jaisalmer to play along, but not sure I'm pulled toward it today. Will decide after a shower. TTFN.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Tea for Two this fine day. Today’s cooking endeavor will be preparing two varieties of beets in the Instant Pot. Beets are my soul food. Exciting, huh?

    Have a good day.

    Happily, I can tie cardamom, native to India, to our sync, by way of Nanadebary Green.
    Bergamot, lemon, basil cardamom, thyme, musk and vetiver.

    More so than mine -- cabbage, boiled or baked.
