    Hello and happy Solstice!

    It's the second week in the row where the weather is staying around 30 C and I just keep drinking water, eating ice cream, showering several times per day, wearing light citruses and dreaming of some lake or seaside. Work is impossible, especially having in mind that I live in area where every damn building that's not an outhouse or a toolshed has central heating because no one could survive winter otherwise, but air conditioning is just as rare as my motivation to scrub floors.
    The upside is that I'm not feeling hungry in the heat, so maybe I could shed a few kgs.

    Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca today.

    Ineespenes
    , congrats on your holiday time!
    4 weeks is amazing - I am jealous! I'll be able to squeeze 2 weeks in July and a few additional Fridays off, I'm thankful for that.
    Have fun!

    jujy, I hope you'll start feeling better soon (hug)

    Jon, that photo is amazing, I already feel cooler just by looking at it!

    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’m impressed! Not too sweet, not too salty, not too fruity. I’m looking for that “Vietnamese Beef Salad” note that vintage Diorella had. If I find it and it has decent longevity I may see a fb in my future!

    Hooray for your time off, Ine and teardrop! I hope you both get some good weather to add to your enjoyment!

    Q, I can’t imagine that to-do list will simply vanish. I suspect a new one of some sort will take its place

    That is a sublime present, ComDiva. The image you paint is beautiful. Fireflies have largely disappeared from my part of the country as well. I wonder if they’re being affected by pesticides and herbicides in ways similar to the honeybees? Perhaps there are some to be found in areas outside of towns and away from farms…. It’s heartbreaking, the things we do to our planet and its inhabitants.

    After a week of heat (100+/38 without meaningful humidity), it was gorgeous here yesterday - poofy white clouds flitting across a bright blue, sunny sky, light breeze, and a glorious 77/25 degrees. I’ll take more of *that*, please! Alas, the heat is back today but not as bad as last week.

    I’ve been feeling very floral lately, so I think I’ll start the day in a couple of light spritzes of Amouage Love Tuberose. I’ve discovered going easy on the sprayer is the trick with that one.

    Jujy, how’s the shoulder feeling today after yesterday’s rest? I recently heard the same healing rule-of-thumb for soft tissue injuries: a week per decade. I wish I could apply the decade I feel like I’m in vs the actual one!

    Much better, thank you. I woke up to much less pain. Turned on a timer and allowed myself 20 min at piano. Staying off the bike for now, and I avoid driving, since I have a stickshift. Computer time is a sneaky culprit, too, particularly the tablet, so I am minding my time and trying to stay out of the rabbit hole when I have some obscure search idea tempting me.

    It is in the 60s F on this second day of summer, with blue skies and some puffy clouds, following yesterday's rainy cloudy solstice. I plan to take a nice walk; this is my kind of weather.

    I am enjoying hearing about everyone's holidays and celebrations.

    Jujy, I am glad you are feeling better.

    Something bloomed yesterday, my eyes are red and so itchy, fortunately I have some eyedrops that work pretty well. I'm wearing Clementine California and watching Dapper the kitten play with a piece of trash he fished out of the wastebasket.

    Cats can be so entertaining!

    I'm wearing Chanel Jersey today. I'm trying to decide if I should buy a bottle of perfume since it's the solstice and one of my four buying days (solstices and equinoxes). I fell off the wagon of my disciplined buying schedule during pandemic isolation and think I should jump back on. Contenders include La Pausa, Bel Respiro, or Pomegranate Noir.

    I'll bet it's pesticides that are decimating them. Especially the mass spraying for mosquitoes that a lot of locations are doing.

    I was so shocked last summer to see a few of them hovering over my lawn at dusk. I hadn't seen a firefly in more than 20 years.

    Comdiva - loved the bday at the park watching fireflies. Wow! I've never seen that before. Sounds magical

    jujy - be patient with yourself and your shoulder. Whenever I am dealing with pain management I try (as much as possible) to avoid sugar, gluten, dairy...and sometimes this has helped my healing dramatically. Obviously this isn't always easy to accomplish - but doing so also helps me lose fat and my skin looks great!

    ineespenes - so jealous of your 4 week vacation. I have a feeling American companies will never adopt that type of scenario for US workers lol


    I am wearing this one, an easy reach but lightly applied it's a fun summer scent:
