    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..."

    Happy Birthday Ine! I wish you sunshine sooner than you will actually get it.

    Mike--Very good to hear your parents are doing well.

    I'm fielding tearful-angry-tearful again-apologetic-happy-I'm buying a new shoe wardrobe-phone calls in a sister dust-up.

    sister talk.jpg

    I'm in Rose Essentielle this morning. Thinking I want to smoke a cigarette and have a glass of wine at 7am. I will do neither. I believe instead I will add a bit of Tient de Niege to the mix and be a rebel that way. I am also not going to check my spelling to avoid the embarrassment of looking stupid.

    My secret's out. I can't spell for shit.

    Morning all! It's been a while since I've checked in. Sorry to go dark--I had a really bad bout of Covid with supplemental oxygen, hi dose steroids, the works. Convalescing at home I just didn't want to do anything but watch Turner Classic Movies and sleep! What a weird Christmas. To boot, until about three days ago, I was completely anosmic. Now even that is improving. This virus is no joke. I have no underlying health issues that would put me at risk for more serious illness and I'm not over 60 (almost!). Yet I had it pretty bad. My boyfriend, who does have risk factors, got infected and sailed through it. It's so unpredictable! I'm grateful to have had lots of support and wonderful medical care. Heck I'm grateful to be here at all. And I hope y'all are in line to get vaccinated if not vaccinated already.

    I have much to catch up on here! It's good to see familiar faces...

    Happy Birthday ine!

    Today I'm in Coromandel, which smells just as marvelous as always!

    Have a great day all! And stay safe.

    (((Hazel))) I'm sorry for your suffering and grateful you"ve returned here with a recovering sense of smell. It's not hard to imagine the emotional strife and physical discomfort you've been through. (((More hugs, dear)))

    Mike, what a relief to hear your mom and dad appear to be okay.

    Ine, I wish you (and all of us) more sunshine on your special day.

    Shycat, you're fun. I just adore you.

    Headed off to the shower. Back later with scent choice.

    Happy with my choice of Hove Rue Royale. Today I could believe there's peach among its unrevealed notes.

    Leaving the house for Target/CVS Pharmacy run. It's been months since I left for something other than doctor appt. We're going to drive through Culver's, too.

    Happy birthday, dear inee ��

    Ongoing hugs to dears ��Quarry�� and ��mikeperez23��

    Brand new hugs to ��Hazel5��. Be sure your doc notes on your chart "can smell Coromandel."

    easyfish : Piguet is a house I need to further explore.

    mystic1 : oooh, Sova. Slumberhouse fragrances are narcotically dreamy.

    Shycat : I can so relate to your sister graphic, and situation. There is nothing like a sisters. One short story: My then-teen daughter once railed at me, "Mom! Why did you tell Aunt Rachel. . . ?" about something. That's when I realized that a sister is who you tell everything to. Anyway, that's my definition.

    . . . and . . . good Sunday to all! It is Sunday, tho mine got off to a weird start.
    I woke up and thought, shit, it's Monday. Then I [accidentally] made my latte with buttermilk. I did wonder why the Nespresso frother was balky. Yes, it's Pandemic: Home Alone, but this is the first time I've ever not known it was Sunday. The middle of the week usually messes me up, and I invariable get to Thursday thinking, what?! Already? How the hell did I get here and why is my to-do list so unchecked-off?

    Yes, I finished the buttermilk latte. It's actually not that bad, and got better as I finished it, with two dunks of mini biscotti, maybe because I added a tablespoon of light cream to the buttermilk. SOTD is that brunch-y frag Ralph Lauren Ralph Hot. It smells of the carbs and maple syrup I'm not eating.


    �� hat tip to freewheelingvagabond for my soundtrack as I do the Sunday NYT puzzle.

    ps—I clipped emojis, mostly hugs, and got question marks in their place when this posted [sigh]

    So much good news here today, I already feel more cheerful than when I woke up.

    Hazel !! So good to see you here again, what an ordeal you've been through! Great to have you back amongst us. Shycat, you've already won the day today: you didn't misspell a single thing. And such good news from MikeP, too.

    I'm continuing my imaginary trip to the Mediterranean Coast today with Sud Est by Romeo Gigli. Still cold here but with bright sunshine, time to go outdoors and soak up a little Vitamin D.
