    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..."

    Avon Lahana. It's a sticky sweet tropical floral I absolutely loved when I was 12 and I still kind of like it. Sue me.

    Going with Creed Green Irish Tweed today.

    Today is the start our first major heat wave for 2020. It should get to the upper 90s or 35-36F a few days from now. It's going to be painful to endure.

    Hello!
    Samsara today.
    I was at a nearby hair salon today, got my hair cut and dyed. On my way and back there were lilacs blooming everywhere. So beautiful. And very warm here today, too.
    We'll be making lasagna later.
    Hope you're having a nice and peaceful weekend.

    I really enjoyed your post yesterday, foxbins -- the juxtaposition of your 1983 self and your today self, pulled together by your fragrance. I love your wry sense of humor. And you must have smelled *fantastic*!

    I love that photo, Jon. My goodness, I want to travel again.

    ClockworkAlice, you must be feeling terrific after your cut and color. I'm getting mine done in less than an hour!

    Well, assuming I can drag my sorry ass out of bed. I utterly abused myself last night. Not with alcohol although I'd totally understand why you guys might immediately think that No, I watched all of the last 3 Star Wars movies -- and I started at 8:30 pm. And my internal clock still woke me up at 6:15. Then 7:30. Then 8:30. Then 9:13, when I gave up. My poor eyes and face feel so puffy. I need a facial. (And yes, I'm a nerd, too. I'd say a closet nerd, but I suspect it's not much of a closet.)

    So I'm wearing something completely out of character this morning to try and ease myself into everything today -- including our first warmer-than-I'd-like (82F) and sticky humid day: Parle Moi de Parfum Totally White. It's the gentlest possible lilac, veiled with something vaguely like a dryer sheet but better and just a little bit of woodiness. When I first put it on my wrists, I thought "nice but insipid." I'm re-thinking the insipid part. It's weirdly growing on me, despite my not really wanting it to. This might be the only fragrance I could wear with a hangover.

    Sunnyfunny, sometimes a sticky sweet tropical floral is perfect.

    l can empathise with those having weird sleep patterns. l have one more week to go before l have two weeks off, & l can't wait! My last week off was back in early March, & it seems like a lifetime ago.

    We've got weird weather here: sunny one minute, hammering down with rain the next, & very windy! My work day went exceptionally fast today, & before l knew it l'm home again enjoying another wine o'clock with Philosykos.
