    Good morning everyone. After a night with lack of sleep I managed to get up and try to get ready for work. Outside it's really windy and dark. I'm joining N. Cal in a Chanel. Cristalle edp for me.

    Ineespenes, stay strong. Working with lack of sleep is difficult. I myself stayed up a bit too late though.

    Mon Guerlain today.

    Good morning.

    I am feeling a bit battered and bruised today
    after the surgery on my forehead last week. I just
    took the dressing off and am quite shocked at the extent of the
    scar just above my eyebrow. There is a vertical and horizontal
    row of stitches both about two inches long. The one on my back
    is of a similar size. I am a bit cross because I actually had them
    looked at twice over the past two years and was told they were ok
    and just to keep an eye on them. It was only the third time, when they
    were obviously growing that the dermatologists did anything about them.
    I feel if they had taken them off earlier I would have avoided all this scarring.

    Anyway, rant over. At least I am cancer-free for the time being. Hubbie is
    taking me for a drive to see the Autumn colours in the Shropshire Hills.

    My SOTD is Bulgari Omnia

    Eau de Parfum
    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 and best to everyone. ((((Kewart)))) I hope your drive through the fall foliage helps lift your spirits.

    I just got back from early voting. The lines were long but it moved along very well. I was heartened to see the good turnout.

    Alien Eau Extraordinaire today. Wish you all a good start to your week.

    My scent of the day is J'Adore edp Infinissime, from a sample. I like it, but anything with tuberose gets a vote of no confidence here.

    Hello, all!

    Sympathy/empathy to ine and ClockworkAlice and anyone else having sleep troubles... I finally managed a decent night's sleep last night - first time in... weeks, I think. Just stress and anxiety about the current state of things. (((kewart))) - I hope any scarring fades to barely noticeable as soon as possible, though I am very glad to hear you're now cancer-free. Meanwhile, I suggest coming up with a good "scar story." Fending off a shark attack is always a good one.

    For my SOTD, I am feeding an aldehyde craving that popped up suddenly. Happens sometimes... Imaginary Authors L'Orchidee Terrible. I expected it to clash with the season, but somehow for me it's suggesting being indoors somewhere classy in frosty weather.



    Make the most of your Monday!

    L'Orchidée Terrible fragrance note:
    Orchid, Honey, Muguet, Aldehydes, White musk, Satin
    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

    Since sleep seems to be a theme today... mine had a shocking interruption last night. I've been wearing a defibrillator vest since my surgery, and at 5am I woke to its siren alarm and a voice emanating from it sayiing "Bystanders, do not touch patient -- treatment is being administered." The thing is, I'm such a deep sleeper that I apparently missed the early alarm and the window of time to shut down the shocking, so BOOM -- I got the full paddle treatment, like you see in doctor shows on TV. I felt fine, if shaken, afterwards, certainly too well to call 911, so I called the vest company and they downloaded the data from it; turns out it detected a slight irregularity in my heartbeat, and so it did its job. The service rep came out to inspect it and all is well now, but it was way more excitement than anyone wants at 5am.

    I'm feelingl okay, and I have a doctor appointment later today to verify that, to which I think I'll wear a light application of original Bottega Veneta EdP.

    Kewart, they do such amazing things with sutures these days that you might find you have almost no scarring at when they dissolve or are removed. Here's hoping!

    Geeze, CookieB! My clothes only shock other people.

    It’s kind of amazing that defib vests even exist. I’m glad yours is working properly, even though I’m sorry you need it. Your heart will always be dear to mine.

    Hello all,

    I'm wearing Tuscany per Donna today from a new bottle. I'm so happy that it seems to smell the same as when I used to wear it, long ago. By the way, I don't chase vintage. More for those who do, right?

    There are huge wind storms here today with gusts up to 50 mph. It was really scary in the middle of the night because it sounded like a freight train. Now there are fires and my son, who lives nearby, might be evacuated.

    Have a good day.
