    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..."

    Still hot here, but supposed to stay below 90F degrees on Saturday, and I think Le Canotier by Rogue Perfumery can stand up to that.

    Rumor has it that Mr. Cross is not discontinuing this dry, mossy vetiver, which is welcome news to me.

    Guess which member of the luncheon party Renoir was in love with?

    Hello all,

    Today I’m house twins with kbe and freewheelingvagabond in L’Artisan Parfumeur’s Tea for Two. Ah, how I love a comforting gourmand.

    The hubby and I will take a nice drive down the coast this afternoon. We’re scoping out some campsites and will visit our new favorite Mexican restaurant.

    Have a good day.

    How pleasant your plans sound, Trilby.

    This morning I was weeding plants and moving rocks (surprising, right?), when a police officer suddenly appeared over my shoulder. Of course, the dog starts jumping all over him. My mind goes blank. What's happening? What could be wrong? Why is he here? Then he says, "I've been driving by here for years ..." And my mind rests. I've had this conversation dozens of times. He wondered if we actually lived here. He'd noticed us outside often. He liked that we're preserving the place. I told him the historical highlights and invited him to come back when he sees we've posted the "tours available by appointment" sign next year. He promised to return and to tell his kid's teacher about the offer, too.

    Enjoying Cologne Sologne for sci fi Saturday.

    Heh, heh, heh, I thought of all that last night for the ERs all across the nation. A full moon on Friday the 13th. Mr. Cat just left...telling me some story about a woman I have actually met whose husband and son got into a fight at a memorial service, managed to be laughing about it over a couple of beers and embarrassed with one another later back home, only to have the woman come out and bury a pocket knife to the stops in her husbands back. He was life-flighted to Vanderbilt and her bond is set at $10,000. I said:

    If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.

    He seemed concerned I wasn't more shocked.

    See, I looked at that and thought-- Man, that's a severe UTI on the left and some upper urinary tract red cell loss on the right--kidney stones.


    Anyway, despite the recent events in the backwoods and underbelly of rural Tennessee, I will venture fourth and partake of steak, scallops, and chardonnay. I plan to jam the gears from coffee to wine. Sit with my back to the wall in vintage Tihota.

    Lmao


    Headed to a guided meditation in a big cloud (from a sample...I wore the whole damn 1 ml vial...wth!) of:

    Santo Incienso by The Different Company



    Apparently this is an Extrait. It's so transparent that you don't realize how tenacious and strong it is until the palo santo wood has clobbered you over the head. Quite interesting - but way out of my price range for something this 'simple' that you could sort of label as 'fresh incense' but then put back on the shelf and instead wear something like Timbuktu or Kyoto.
