    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. CuddleCat, speedy healing to your mom.

    Alien Eau Extraordinaire for me.

    Happy Mother’s Day, with extra loving thoughts for those who are missing their mothers or who otherwise struggle with this day.

    Yes, HoP, Bowmakers is grand, in both oil and EdP interations. I discovered Bowmakers via LuckyScent's "fragrance fitting." I wrote that I wanted a fragrance that smelt of bass rosin, cedar pencil shavings, and old wet cigar. This was their top pick amongst a fetching group of samples, which included some woody leathers whose names escape me.

    Here on Lake Erie, November has usurped May for days on end. I'm feeling crabby, and on top of that, the NYT Sunday puzzle bedevils me more than usual. I'll be heading out to my little inner burb's community park, a walk away, where a darling couple sets up a darling coffee kiosk from a curvy converted camper trailer. Nonetheless, I give into my sour mood with Jacomo Silences for now.

    Oh, and this tidbit from the Atlantic:
    Year after year, surveys that ask mothers what they most want for Mother’s Day find that their No. 1 answer is time alone.
    Heh. For years, when my kids would ask me what I wanted, I 'd say, the Sunday New York Times and time to read it on Sunday. Actually, over the years, I've gotten that, but also a baseball game, breakfast made for me and the dishes done, and, yes, the Sunday Times plus time. And handprints in plaster, homemade cards, and chocolate.

    A pleasant day to all from not quite disgruntled, but definitely ungruntled moi. XXXOOO

    I'm wearing my Sunday Scent - Le Lion de Chanel.

    Mr. Lark is making Dutch Baby pancakes for brunch at my special request. We're also having Mint Juleps and strawberry shortcake. I made the shortcakes last night. They look nice and golden brown with flaky layers.

    CuddleCat, how old is your mom, may I ask? Is it her dominant arm? Hope she is comfortable. I wish you peace of mind. Sometimes these injuries are harder on the caregivers.

    Happy Mothers Day, all. I'm reflecting on my mom and grandmothers on this gorgeous day as I sit waiting for dear daughter to show up with cake . I'm wearing one of the fragrances she gave me: Disney Haunted Mansion Madame Leota. I've decided its notes are grapefruit and raspberries with a little bit of rose and musk. It's really pretty nice.

    On a picture-perfect spring day so full of sunshine, breezes, and birdsong that it's almost comical, I felt like absolutely wallowing in vintage No. 19.

    Jujy, the NYT crossword is kicking my a$$ today, too. I had to take a break from it to clear my head; this one's going to destroy my average time streak for Sundays.*

    Hello, everyone, belated happy birthday to purecaramel, and I hope Mom CuddleCat is on the mend! Also happy Mother's Day to those of us in the US, with special warm thoughts for those missing their special maternal-role-model people today. I miss my mother all the time, but today my own three kids all called me from three different states, so I'm content.

    Also, in Boston, Mother's Day is also (usually) an event called "Lilac Sunday" at the Arnold Arboretum (which happens to be where DH and I got married!), and with the exception of last year when everything was closed due to COVID, the walks planted with a huge variety of lilacs are open and rather full of people out to enjoy the beautiful blooms and fragrance. It's still too risky (in my view) to go out in any kind of potential crowd, so I stayed home and did my part with my SOTD - Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle En Passant.



    I don't care that it's not in the listed notes, this fragrance is primarily a sheer lilac on me, and I love it!

    En Passant fragrance notes: Lilac (despite not being listed), Orange leaf, Cucumber, Wheat.
    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
