    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Happy Birthday to Dora and Happy Birthday Cestrum


    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..."

    Morning all, & Happy Birthday dora & cestrum!

    lne, l hope all will be well for you, & for anyone else who's feeling under the weather right now.

    l'm getting ready to head back to work on the late shift today, & wondering what l'll find there. There were plenty of people out & about yesterday, & Mondays are usually busy at work, but l don't know if people will stay away from the hospital if they only have a minor complaint. We shall see...

    lt's sunny & feeling like Spring here, so l'm wearing Spring Jasmine today.

    I read your post yesterday (or the day before?), hoping that your work situation improves, and/or maybe moves to remote working if possible.

    That's the spirit, foxbins! I imagine the new travel restrictions are throwing a monkey wrench into your travel plans?

    I'm wearing Buonissimo for another day at home. I did manage to walk 10,000 steps outdoors yesterday. I heard that's a healthy thing to do.

    Happy birthday Dora and Cestrum!

    Thinking of our darlings Cestrum and Dora on their special day.

    Fond and fit greetings to all.

    Wearing Prada d'Iris Cedre because it provides a sweet-tart, "gastrique effect." This is my new revelation for what I like in a fragrance.

    teardrop stay safe and thank you for your service. This pandemic is going to get much worse before better. The US seems to be lagging in taking this thing seriously though several state governors are implementing some tougher new rules. Hopefully more states will do so, so we can stop the spread! In the meantime I'm being a good citizen and staying at home, where there is plenty of work to do!

    Thanks tdem, kewart, freewheelin' & Hazel!

    As l had hoped, most of the people with "minor" problems seem to be staying away from the hospital, so the workload today was much more manageable than usual. But we're all being told we could be moved to work in other areas if/when it becomes necessary, & the fear of the unknown is making many people jittery.

    l went to pick up a few essentials from the supermarket on the way home, & got pretty much what l needed, but l was shocked to see that even the fresh fruit & veg aisles were almost cleared out. Thankfully it wasn't crowded though.

    24 Faubourg, hope your day wasn't too rough!

    Attagirl, foxbins! That should help with the social distancing, he he.
