    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 everyone and Happy birthday to to Devilcat I've read through yesterday's and today thread, and I'm touched by all rhe good thoughts and condolences to my bf and his family. It is a horrible thing that has happened, and unfortunately he has been through the same thing about three years ago. Then his brother did the same thing I don't really know what I want to wear today, but Imight put on Tam dao or another woody scent later. It feels comforting

    This is such horrible news. My biggest condolences for you, your bf and all his family. Stay strong, stay together.



    I am back from my holiday in Corfu, it was amazing. The week just flew by.
    We went sightseeing, swimming, visiting museums and different beautiful beaches, smelled every flower and blooming tree on our way, and I also asked to photograph me near all the beautiful trees (that's my own joke for myself, as my given name has a meaning of Fir or Spruce, so of course I must pay my visit to all my brothers and sisters, haha. I think I forgot to take a photo near a cypress, a tree that is very dear to me, so it means I must go back to South next year ).
    And, of course, we ate. Greek salad, mousakka, gyros, souvlaki, various fish and seafood dishes, dolmados, baklava, frappe, Greek beer and wines, Retsina wine (I'm probably the only one I know who genuinely enjoys it, so I brought home some just for myself!), some other salads and of course lamb kleftiko (Teardrop, I remember it's one of your favourites! I enjoyed it a lot, too! I found it comparable to chanakhi, a Georgian stew that's also quite popular in my country and is also one of my favourite dishes...but Lithuanians cook it without aubergines, just mainly meat, potatoes and carrots)... I'm slowwwwly trying to shed some weight and come back to my ideal ~57 kgs instead of, eh, 10 kg more than that which creeped up onto me during the last few years, but it's impossible when everything around you is so damn tasty

    We came back on Monday, but I couldn't bring myself to check in here, so I just slept, did laundry and so on.

    Also, happy birthday to devilcat!
    And to everyone who's birthdays I have missed while I was away!

    And also hugs and best wishes for everyone caught in a fire season, flood season or other less than fine weather season. The Earth is definitely angry. Take care.

    Oh, and I wore Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic through all the last week, and today I am wearing Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante - but I might top it up with Les Amoureux de Peynet by Molinard when I go out to meet my best friend just in a couple of minutes.

    The sun was glowering in our hazy sky last evening herein the 216, withholding all sunbeams. It had an implacable stillness.

    Today, cloudy, 70s, a chance of rain. I cannot complain. Off to lunch with my BGBF in Eris Belle de Jour.

    It's cool this morning and I am wearing Twilly. My order for an induction stove, placed in June, was canceled today and I am beyond peeved as I changed my flights to accommodate the delivery. Now delivery dates are pushed into Sept/Oct, with no guarantee that they will be honored. I think I'll hold off on all the appliances until supply chains have stabilized. First world problems.

    I took a break from work calls this morning to walk around our little community, just to get outside and move a bit. I need to remember how good that feels and find ways to do it more often.

    I'm wearing the always-cheerful, perfect-for-hot-weather Profumum Neroli.

    Sorry to hear about your stove, foxbins. First world problems or not, that is definitely annoying. Are you going to reschedule your next trip to the island or keep it anyway?

    I ordered a bookshelf, and it's been in transit for six weeks now. Just slowly moving south. Has finally made it to Florida, but they can't get it to me till mid August. I'm glad it just a bookshelf and not something urgent!

    We're a pair of tired old dogs, but we think we've fixed the leach field issue. We had to dig deep metaphorically and farther north-south geographically and finally located intact drainage tile. I got to play contortionist in the sticky, black sludge to replace the failed section with pvc pipe. Yes, cook.bot, it's what you think it is.

    Now cleansed, I have Chanel Edimbourg on one wrist and Isvaraya on the other.
