    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..."

    Feeling a bit more positive about my back today after seeing a really
    good chiropractor yesterday, who has helped the pain level a lot and
    given me some exercises to do.

    A day of sunshine and showers by the looks of things.

    Hello and best to everyone. (((((HoP))))) I lost my mother earlier this year and think of her every day. Xo

    Kewart I’m glad for the encouraging progress. Hoping you’ll be back to 100% soon.

    It's supposed to stay below 90 degrees here today! I'm celebrating with lavish lashings of the modern Guerlain Vetiver.

    tdem... Hugs to you. If it weren't for the fact, that she was also my best friend, maybe, it wouldn't hurt so bad?!

    And thanks also, Kewart. I'm better today, I suppose. I broke my new "rule" of not buying any perfume, deciding to finally order samples from Rogue Perfumery. A lot of folks here seem to like them so, I might, too...

    I've switched to Chameleon by Zoologist, for the afternoon.

    Glad to hear of your improvement, kewart!

    l was late leaving work today. Had to complete an incident report after a patient's husband was verbally abusive to me, when l was actually offering my help. l know that most people are appreciative of the work l do, but it only takes one person like this to make me wonder why l bother. Mr teardrop is being his usual supportive self though, & thank goodness l have two days off to recover.

    Wearing my comfort scent, Samsara, this evening, & l'm on my second glass of wine.

    Teardrop, when a person is a sweetie, as you are, it's hard not to take "the world" personally and for it to take days to purge an unjust confrontation from your gut. I expect you to joyfully spoil your sensitive self with good fun for the next two days.

    (((Hugs and kisses for all putting up with the aches and pains of life.)))

    Thanks, N.Cal.

    Big hugs to HoP! You're in good company at least; several of us know just what you're going through. Take extra good care of yourself this weekend!

    And hugs and to teardrop! Shame on that man. We all hit hard times but in no way does it excuse abusive behavior toward those who are just doing their job. I'm sorry you were in this (ahem) "gentleman's" line of fire. Time to treat yourself!

    Joining the Guerlain gang in some Shalimar, while the temps are mild. Have a great weekend!
