    Welcome back, teardrop! What an arduous return journey for you-- I'll bet that made being home feel extra sweet though!

    Whitefluffy, LOLOLOL! I am glad my hoarding collecting habits taught you such a valuable lesson. How was the lavender honey salad?

    Hazel5, hopefully I don't sound creepy, but I do love a good hike, so I looked up your impressive sounding hike trail. Google images didn't disappoint! Looks absolutely stunning. Hope you had a great hike. Yesterday we went on a little 2 mile hike up around 800 ft in the Santa Monica mountains and were treated to panoramic views of the Pacific, Catalina Island, and LA from the Westside all the way to downtown LA. It was a bit steep, but always worth it.

    In sync and triplets with Cook.bot and kewart in Le Parfum de Therese. ComDiva, I almost twinned with you in Carnal Flower, but the cool morning here seemed at odds with all that BWF beauty. Especially enjoying the violetty aspects of LPdT today.

    Thanks ClockworkAlice, tdem, Jon, Q, ComDiva, HoP & cestrum!

    l must say one of the things that kept me sane during yesterday's long journey was the book l took with me to read on holiday: Thais of Athens by lvan Yefremov. Someone here on basenotes recommended it to me, but l can't remember who? Please identify yourself so l can thank you! What a fascinating read, full of historical detail & a wonderful central character based on a real person. lt's also very long, so thank goodness l didn't finish it before the day was over!

    Welcome back, Teardrop. My sympathies for the travel wounds! Mr. Cat is doing well, always hungry though. I'm going to try to cook tonight for our supper tomorrow.

    That would be me...

    I am so glad that you not only enjoyed it, but it kept you sane during your long arduous journey. I read and re-read that book many times over my life - first in my teens, than mid-twenties, then mid-thirties. Each time I pick up new details and new meanings. I definitely will continue to read it until the rest of my life.

    Cestrum - Lavender honey dressing was amazing and went very well with creamy goat cheese, strawberries, pine nuts, and radishes . I am thinking there must be a fragrance with prominent lavender, honey, and strawberry notes...hmmm.

    Well something silly happened to me today - we have casual Fridays policy but I came to work slightly overdressed as I am currently do not have jeans that fit me (hoping to rectify this situation this weekend). We have fitness walk on Fridays during lunch where we attempt to walk a mile or two with the other employees. Well, as soon as we started our walk, it started pouring down rain and our small group got soaked through. Luckily, I had my yoga attire with me at work, and my Friday became a very Extreme Casual Friday indeed. Still smelling good in Chanel L'EAU .

    And hello to you too, HouseOfPhlegethon!

    Welcome home teardrop, it always feels so good to be clean and comfortable again after a long trip. :-) And welcome back to Whitefluffy (love your name). I wore Musc Ravageur today, have transitioned to Bengale Rouge for the evening.

    Thanks Shycat & caz!

    Whitefluffy, l can't thank you enough for the book recommendation! l am so glad you're back on basenotes just in time for me to thank you. l can see why you would re-read this one many times over, there are so many deep & meaningful observations in it that are still so very relevant today. lt's the kind of book that makes me stop & think while reading, & that's why l've read it so slowly, but that's the kind of book l like. And l'd never heard of Thais before, despite my habit of devouring books about Greece & the Greeks.
    lt's fascinating to read the story of Alexander from an intelligent woman's point of view. lt reminds me a little of The Firebrand by Marion Bradley, which tells the story of Troy through the eyes of the so-called "mad priestess" Cassandra. Have you read that one? By the same author, The Mists of Avalon is probably my all-time favourite book, telling the story of King Arthur from the point of view of Morgana, who is a much more sympathetic character than the one usually portrayed in Arthurian legend. l have read this one several times, as well.

    Again, I am so glad you enjoyed it! And I am so glad that someone went to trouble of translating it to English, and by the sound of it, did a good job of conveying the story as it should have been told. It is funny, I was just discussing this book with my coworker they other day who is from the similar parts of the world as I am and speaks the same language.

    It appears we might have similar tastes in books. No, I have not read the books you mentioned, but they definitely sound like something I might enjoy. I do love stories based on historic events told from the human perspective. I am currently reading a sci fi book lent by my coworker (the abovementioned), but these are certainly on my to read list now!
