    Good Morning!
    It's a super sunny and beautiful morning, a true spring. Yesterday we went to the city park with bicycles, and the blooming trees smelled just like Guerlain's Jardins de Bagatelle.

    Wearing Alaia today (later I will layer something on top of it as it's great for layering). Wishing you all a great week!

    Wishing you a great week too, Clockwork!

    I am wearing Empreinte by Courreges (1970 version)

    I have to be in the mood for this leather chypre with animal notes
    in the base. It performs better in cooler temperaures like this morning.
    Off for my second Covid vaccine soon.

    Do I feel space age??

    Morning all!

    lt's a blustery day here, with glimpses of sunshine between heavy, dark clouds. But the temps are getting milder, & l had my first swift sighting of the year yesterday!

    l have the day off, & l'll be off to the library again soon in Smuggler's Soul.

    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..."

    Greetings, all and wishing everyone a great start to the week!

    Getting to some of the nitty-gritty of job hunting today, including collating some writing samples for one potential employer.

    Kicking it old school in a delicious (to me) floral-and-leather chypre, old-fashioned when it was released in the 1970s, but I enjoy it now! Guerlain Parure. A springtime scent for me.



    Marvelous Monday, everyone!

    Parure fragrance notes: Hesperidic notes, Plum, Thyme, Galbanum, Clary sage, Rose, Jasmine, Lilac, Lily of the valley, Orris, Narcissus, Jonquil, Oakmoss, Spices, Wood, Leather, Styrax, Vetiver, Peru balsam, Amber.
    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

    Best wishes for a smooth recovery to CuddleCat's mom. Your mom's independent spirit will hopefully help with that.

    I'm wearing Lipstick Rose and day-dreaming of retirement with ever-increasing frequency. Too bad I have something like 12 more years.

    (((((CuddleCat's mum and CuddleCat)))))

    I'm in but my 60s and already my primary care guy asks me, "any falls?" and does the balance test wherein my eyes are closed and he bats me around at the shoulders; so far I am untoppled (this character also does a neuro exam with a snapped in two tongue depressor). Really, not falling takes up more of my head space. I noticed recently that I need to look down when descending stairs. Bit by bit, my insousiance is whittled. C'est la vie. . .

    Bolted out the house to work sans scent. Masked and amongst my masked students, why even bother? Because scent! Fortunately, Atelier Cologne Jasmin Angélique is in my purse, I spritzed on wrists and a little toward the mask. A spring-y pick-me-up.

    We've been delayed by weather and other projects, but tomorrow we finally start the roofing job. It should be done by the weekend. This "retirement" is tiring.

    Snuggly Guerlain Coquin for today.

    I'm wearing Diptyque Florabellio today. The initial blast of apple blossom, swiftly followed by coffee and other unusual coastal notes, is utterly delightful!

    Having a specific retirement plan in mind helps one endure all sorts of nonsense at work. That's my experience!
