    Hello! Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune today. I am finally seeing my family after half a year. We all did covid test at home before meeting. I am so happy to see my parents. It was impossible to meet before because they live in another town. We exchanged Christmas and Easter presents, drank lots of coffee together and will go out for a walk in the park and near the river.

    That’s such wonderful news, ClockworkAlice! Your parents are no doubt as thrilled as you obviously are The happiness in your post is shining through.

    I’m happy today, too. I’m wearing Daim Blond - and those who know me know what that means! YAY!!!

    David and I are taking a long weekend, to do some hiking, see some friends, and drink some wine before the craziness of next weekend (my oldest stepson is getting married!). I’m happy to report that everyone at the airport has been peacefully complying with all of the safety precautions. It’s nice to see people behaving responsibly.

    ETA: Quarry, I forgot to add my felicitations to Mr. Quarry yesterday ... so, belated Happy Birthday! I hope you and he enjoyed the day.

    I'm wearing Lancome Hypnose today.

    Temperatures are dropping. It's been such a weird year, weather-wise. Much cooler than usual and I like it that way.

    Yay for Clockwork Alice and ExtremeK for inching back to "normalcy".

    Happy belated Birthday wishes to caz and Mr. Q!

    It rained overnight (I'm glad I mowed the lawn yesterday) and the sun is supposed to show itself later this morning. I am wearing Amyris Femme.

    Thank you, Jon, Trilby, Extreme K, HoP!
    Well said, Trilby, - it really feels like inching back to normalcy.
    Happy to hear about your weekend plans, ExtremeK!

    Wine o'clock is chiming with some very nice pinot noir.

    , I always want to sit next to you; you always, always smell terrific!

    I'm home and a bit miserable with a puffy eyelid that sent me to urgent care last night. Antibiotic ointment and warm compresses should help, though I'm still feeling punky. Stared at my perfue shelf trying to find a balm. Léonard Balahé it is. There is a medicinal vibe that suits the moment.

    In other news, I went onto match dot com, and am regretting it. I had joined last spring and had one nice lunch date and things graciously fizzled after that. Why join again? I don't know! It comes down to this for me: online dating too much resembles auditions and/or advertising. Well, that and, I challenged my own assumption—that I can be content, or I can be in the hunt, but I can't be both. Actually, I was right, for me. Being "in search of" upends my contentment. I am genuinely happy single, and I have friendships that reach back half a century. I cannot even fathom weaving in someone met so artificially. When someone sends me a message, my heart sinks; go figure. What I miss in the era of COVID is spontaneity. Ah well, three moths of membership is cheaper than therapy! And basenotes beats the couch anyway. I just found the "nobody can see me" button. Done!

    Good evening. It's been quite a busy day hence the late posting.
    Nothing special - just various chores, visits to the recyclying centre
    and some gardening.

    I am now wearing Bulgari Omnia.

    Hello everyone Today is a grey day with lots of snow and wind. I've slept most of the day because I feel tired. ExtremeK and Clockwork Alice, I'm glad to hear about your day with family To get me in a more Springlike mood I decided on Midnight violet. This is also a very fitting Autumnscent. I really LOVE it and wish it wasn't discontinued. Now wine o'clock for me. Have a great day everyone

    So happy for the Clockwork fam. I can't imagine weathering a pandemically induced exile from one's parents.
    ExtremeK, you'll get carded at the bar, cuz the 'tender will doubt you're old enough to be stepmother of the groom.

    Thank you all for Mr. Q's greetings on his 72nd(!) birthday. He, like ExtremeK, could pass for younger. This week, weather allowing, we'll be scaling the scaffolding to work on the roof. After this, we'll be scaling down our ambitions to more age-appropriate pursuits.

    Seeing as Dear Daughter brought over cake and vegan ice cream today, that's all I've eaten. Appropriately, I'm wearing Feminite du Bois, of which BN reviewer Castiglione wrote: "I recall the legend that is Yves de Chiris describing that, after the usual toing and froing, Serge declared he wanted a cake made out of woods, which was the eureka moment."

    Trilby, you’re so right about the normalcy! I hope the temps rise for you soon - will you be able to climb in that convertible of yours and zip up the PCH with top down soon?

    Quarry, you’re such a sweetheart

    Thank you all - this trip is just what we needed, and we, too, are about to kick off wine o’clock early in a wine tasting room. There’s a pinot noir and a Tempranillo with my name on them!

    I chose Parfum d’Empire Salute! for the occasion. As soon as I get home, I’m ordering a bottle. It’s harvest-time-in-wine-country in a bottle!

    Hello, everyone, and so glad to hear of the various family reunions and outings!

    After a night of stress-and-two-cocktails induced insomnia, stayed very low-key today. Had a very nice walk/chat (masked) with a friend I haven't seen in far too long today. Tonight, pizza on the back patio (distanced) with another couple - Inching back to normalcy, indeed!

    SOTD is another in the Kerosene sample lineup - Kerosene Unforsaken. Very cheerful and an excellent accompaniment to my day.



    Unforsaken fragrance notes: Coconut, Clementine, Tangerine, Yuzu, Orange blossom, Jasmine, Ginger, Benzoin, Musk, Vanilla, Tonka bean
    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
