    Good morning all !. Day off today that will be spent doing something constructive in the garden starting by clearing a fragrant gift thoughtfully left by a local fox . The brief hot spell has passed and conditions look balmy and idyllic. Wine o'clock will be alfresco.

    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..."

    Hello, all, and belated HBTY, mumsy!

    I was up until all hours cooking for Rosh Hashanah, as we are having friends over for a socially distanced festive meal tonight (at opposite ends of our 7-foot table, with two sets of serving dishes, some of each dish divided up by 'pod') on our back deck - I managed to score a table umbrella stand with an electric heater at the base, which we're hoping will extend our outdoor dining options, testing it out tonight. Regardless of your celebratory practice, wishing *everyone* a good, sweet, happy and healthy year ahead.

    In sync in Neil Morris Fragrances Chasing Autumn. I'd forgotten how good this one is...



    Fabulous Friday, everyone!

    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

    Checking in to say "hi."
    The only scents I'm enjoying are the JM Fresh Mint Leaf on my mask, Yves Rocher liquid grapefruit soap for handwashing, and a bar of jasmine soap at my bedside for ambiance.
    Lots of appointments, tests, procedures. Not a fan of the surgically implanted chest mediport. Chemo isn't too bad. Zero appetite, feeling sleepy. Less stressed emotionally now that some hurdles have been met. The nurses are the greatest. Dear hubby has taken on whatever I can't do. So, I'm lucky in many regards. The good news is that last week's CT scan shows no cancer in my lungs, which is where bladder cancer may spread.

    Good to know it hasn't spread and that hubby and the nurses are so good.

    As for other things - I hope it all gets better and better gradually.

    ComDiva - it sounds great. Happy Rosh Hashanah!

    Hello everyone First of all.... (((Quarry))). I'm glad the cancer hadn't spread, but these days must be tough still... This morning we came back from my bf's greatgrandma. We had just one whole day there, but used our time effectively. Yesterday we went hiking and it resulted in me slightly twisting my ankle. It hurts, but I'm ok. We also went to dinner at his Mom. There are 5 puppies at her house these days. They are cute, but totally hyper Today my dad turns 70 so we will go out for dinner at a fishrestaurant. For the synch I decided on Bois des iles extrait. Have a great day all

    (((Quarry))) Congrats on the clean chest! Big deep breath and keep moving forward. Thinking of you.

    In synch, nothing says Fall 1987 like LouLou. Wearing one spray because more would cause me to choke. I used to wear multiple sprays of this every day!

    Salutations, everyone—

    I needed a pick me up today, so I am wearing vintage Molyneux Le Chic, which is a cheerfully fruity, old school, Rose-carnation with pretty, genuine sandalwood that has a pleasantly early-autumnal quality.

    Syncing in this early autumn scent, good for my Mediterranean California Coastal climate.The box says: Woody notes, lily and white sandalwood.

    (khanada) I have that same bottle of Le Chic, which was a blind buy, but always seem anosmic to it. Sad, because I want to love it!
