    I just finished watching the Series Finale and I'm just disappointed by the overall storyline of the episode. I won't spoil it but I wasn't happy.

    Made it passed the 35K finished line.

    Morning all!

    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..."

    Congratulations on your 35k, NCal! When I first read your post
    I thought you had run a hugely long race!!

    Chasing sleep is terrible, Ineespenes, as I know
    all too well. Hope you have a gentle day.

    I am wearing L'Occitane Terre de Lumiere and planning on a bit of
    light gardening (or "yardwork" as those over the pond call it.)

    NCal, Shycat, Quarry + others....thanks for the well wishes for my partners fractured toe. He is healing very fast and doing better.

    N Cal - I watched the GOT finale also. I don't know how I feel about it - but I guess you could call it 'contented'. My partner didn't like it, like you.


    I am off to Cross Fit with a tiny application of:

    Rose Delight Body Oil by Tauer



    Love this stuff. Intense sweet rose whiffs.

    Tomorrow is the start of my 8 day vacation. Yay!

    It sets my mind to a congenial temperament imagining teardrop pottering. A little of this, a little of that, following one's impulses. I start the day pottering sometimes, but often turn rabid. Odd thing, this uncontrollable ambition for physical projects.

    Circling back to a forgotten favorite yesterday (Bond No. 9 New Haarlem) makes me think I should review other past likes to see if I haven't overlooked something else to consider a souvenir purchase in Chicago. Repeating New Haarlem for this morn.

    This made me laugh out loud! You know how l love to potter (& l'm glad it made you smile), but l'm a huge admirer of that rabid desire of yours for a physical project, Q. Looking forward to pics of the results of your rip-rap lugging!

    Mike... Hope your guy's injury heals quickly! And... Cleopatra, the movie, is one of my favorites!

    Hope Mr. Quarry is on his way to a speedy recovery.

    Never watched Game of Thrones - don't subscribe to HBO. I saw some hub-hub on TV, that many are disappointed by its finale. Reminded me of our shock at the final episode of The Sopranos. We got over it, after analyzing it over and over.

    I was out this morning cutting back ferns. They were choking the sunlight from my pansies and forget-me-nots. Oh, what aroma! The cut fern fronds vaguely reminded me of heliotrope, something powdery, and glorious the smell is!

    Sonoma Scent Studio To Dream for today, I'll have to find a rose/violet to replace it, almost gone and it is not in heavy rotation but when you need rose, you need rose, yes? Most rose goes bad on me, soapy vomit undertones; but this one does not.
