    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..."

    Today it looks like tasting and comparing three different Cabernet Franc wines.
    The weather is said to be up to 30 degrees C for the weekend.
    I’m in Vol de Nuit Extrait and I am enjoying it particularly. I keep sniffing myself.

    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

    Good morning! Just back from a little getaway; Mr.PL has the week off work. We had intended to mostly stay home to work on our many projects and maybe go to the lake for a day or two. ExtremeK's lake vacation has stayed in my mind though, and we decided to act on her words. So instead, we blew off our projects and went to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for most of the week. So glad we did! We needed that! A couple of water pics from the week:

    On the beach of Lake Michigan in Mackinac County

    Now that I'm refreshed, I need to catch up around here! Didn't have terribly reliable service for our phones, which was rather nice, but I missed you folks. Some reading, lounging and laundry are on the agenda today. Turning out to be a totally unproductive week, but a fun one!

    Congrats on your buy, Hazel5! I love L'Eau! Now that's how to do flankers. A fantastic update of the original.

    Didn't think far enough ahead about the sync (this is a challenging one!) so I just went with my mood, which wanted Amber Flash. Happy Friday, all!

    I love seeing PL back and Miss HJ and Larimar and Cestrum and ComDiva on and on.
    All this heavy lifting and sweatin' is starting to catch up with me. Today I plan to accomplish only grocery hefting.
    I may be avoiding the sync challenge by simply burying my head in Replica Across Sands. ... Or am I? (Honestly, tell me, I don't have a clue.)
