    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    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..."

    A new blind buy for me today in North Atlantic. I went on a bit of a CB I Hate Perfume haul over the past two weeks.

    I've been super busy lately with work and training a new employee. Tomorrow I leave for Vegas and get back on Tuesday. Hopefully I have some time to gear up for the meetup in Chicago when I get back.

    Hugs to my birdy friends here and garden-rich Knit at Nite.

    Fate was being so sweet to us when last I posted on Monday.

    Then our storyline took a couple twists -- husband's knee in particular, when he was attending to leaking plumbing at our rental house. He thought he'd dealt with the problem, but later tenant called to say they had no hot water. At this point, husband was debating whether to go to urgent care because of his painful, swelling leg. Long story short -- handyman and I on Wednesday thought we fixed the plumbing issue, but no -- tenant suffered a second day without hot water (we offered to put them up in a motel, but they declined). Now, two days later, paid plumber the big bucks, husband has a torn ligament, but it's starting to feel a little better, and we're back to singing "This is as good as it gets" with extra irony.

    Enjoying J-L Scherrer a second time this week. I'd forgotten about chypres for a while.
