    Afternoon/evening/morning, too—

    Thinking about Cook.bot and hoping the procedure goes well

    I’m glad I took a couple of days off. My head feels all buzzy from the new meds. I still can’t really eat either, and sleeping is also not going so well. I’m feeling too delicate for a robust scent, so I got out my oil-based roller of Bruise Violet. I’m worried that the oil might have gone off. I haven’t been abusing it, so I am not sure. Maybe this is just how it develops. It has always been extremely subtle. Maybe I should try the EDP.

    Hello!
    I'm in house synch with CuddleCat, wearing Bois Dore by Van Cleef & Arpels today.

    khanada, not being able to eat nor sleep doesn't sound too good. Sending you hugs and wishes to get through this.

    More hugs and wishes to Cook.bot for successful procedure and everyone else who needs them, too.

    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..."

    Hi, everyone, sending positive healing vibes to Cook.bot and khanada - Hope you're both feeling well and balanced soon!

    I got completely sidetracked from my planned scent of Poivre this morning. Wearing 4160 Tuesdays Dirty Honey instead. Positively wafting in a cloud of sweet beeswax and honey, anchored with labdanum and some vanilla. Mmmmm...



    Terrific Tuesday to all!

    Crimes of Passion: Dirty Honey fragrance notes: Beeswax, Honey absolute, Woods, Vanillin, Labdanum, Jasmine, Honeybush extract.
    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 Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    I'm picturing the settings Cook.bot has been put through. Hoping every step was inconsequential and puts you further on the path to feeling your best, dearie.

    Khanada, it's encouraging that you still have an interest in fragrance. It makes me think your spirit has the instinct to rise once chemical or situational obstacles are navigated.

    A leisurely lie-in, a SuperShower, and soon a trip to the grocery store, starting in the wine section. I think I'll go in a cloud of Guerlain Coquin. I'm glad we're not forced to use the store's bags anymore.

    Wishing all the best to cook.bot and Khanada.

    I have had a very active day today - A 5km walk, lots of gardening, painting
    fence panels and some sunbathing in between.

    We had the huge luck to have a visit from two red-legged partridges in our garden
    this afternoon. They seemed very tame and foraged around in the fruit beds looking
    for insects and weeds.

    I had a dental appointment this morning to place a new crown, so no scent until I got back here. Now I'm wearing Santal Kardamon and waiting for the new shed to be delivered. It's metal, like the old shed, so if the box is too heavy I can move it piece by piece into the back yard. The plastic ones are heavy and rats can chew through them.

    Cook.bot, I hope you are okay and preparing to go home.

    I had insomnia Sunday night (only 4 hours of sleep) so I was really dragging yesterday. I took a pill last night and slept over 12 hours. Hey, I'd settle for normal. Luckily, this is intermittent and not too often.

    After a refreshing shower, I've donned Boy Chanel from a sample. Thus far, it's like a mellower Jicky.
