    Good morning all !. Love the haircut, jujy

    Seemed to be devoid of options for today's synch until the eureka moment hit. Why not take inspiration from a castle we have actually visited ?.

    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..."

    I have decided to wear a scent for today's synch that I bought
    at the Fragonard boutique at the Chateau d'Eze on the Cote d'Azur.

    Fleur d'Oranger is so bright and cheerful it never fails to lift my spirits -a goodie but cheapie.

    Good morning. I am un-sync-able today, and, truth be told, I was not thinking sync when I donned Guerlain Véga, made an iced coffee and settled on the side stoop to read a few chapters of Watership Down. Ah, Véga: I intend to enjoy that half a pinkie's breadth left in the bottle most robustly.

    Neighbor is gone, so I will give 20 minutes to piano, then garden a bit. A friend who is an enthusiastic pollinator gardener gave me some native milkweed, and I have tomato plants to put in containers. Here's another pic of my world (hopefully not sideways):

    Not sure I have anything appropriate for a castle. Synchronized nonetheless in Perfect Coconut Milk, for sandcastles.

    Belated Happy Birthday, Trilby!

    Those pictures, Quarry, just have my mouth hanging open. I love the cute little "rock group".

    My best neighbor has had tendon surgery on her right thumb and we took yard tours of each other yesterday. Not a historic site, my yard, but it was still fun!

    sotd is from a sample from Tocca-- Florence. I say it's a gardenia and I like it.
    Aaaaand, this isn't funny anymore.

    Jeez, I go scentless a few days and totally miss Quarry's rock stars and Jujy's new do -- both adorable. Jujy, was it a trick of the light or did you put blue streaks in your hair?

    I spent most of the past 3 days at doctor appointments, just surgery followups and testing. Every single time I get an ultrasound, I fall asleep; that pulsing, gurgling sound just knocks me right out. And I always say a little prayer beforehand that when they wake me up I won't have drooled on anything.

    I'm taking the sand castles option for the sync in Dior Dune, which I felt like wearing anyway as the summer humidity is in full force, much too soon. It seems like only last week we were all complaining about the cold. How can the year be half over already?

    Glad you’re back from all that testing, Cook.bot. Fingers crossed for a clean bill of health!

    We’re getting some much-needed rain today, so I’m tolerating the additional humidity it’s bringing.

    I’m synching in Papillion Anubis.

    Not in Sync - but still smelling good in:

    Thank you all SO MUCH for the Happy Anniversary posts and comments on Monday's thread. I didn't get to them until now and it just made me all warm & fuzzy inside to read them. Many of you don't even know my partner (Giancarlo) and you still posted greetings to him. I'm very grateful for your positive vibes. 6 years isn't a huge thing (my ex and I were together for 15 years - some of you had met him in BN meetups), but nonetheless Giancarlo and I have a great thing going and I'm a lucky guy. His birthday was Wednesday also (lot's to celebrate!) and today was his 2nd vaccine shot. So all is well in our world
