    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..."

    (((Mike))) -- I'm sending wishes for improved health and recovery for your mom and hopes for calm and quiet opportunities for you.

    The heat and humidity have broken and, but for the smoke in the sky from the western wild fires making everything a bit hazy, it's a gorgeous day here. I'm on the balcony about to start a Spanish lesson and will stay here for some reading and relaxation as long as I possibly can.

    I'm wearing Profumum Roma Neroli.

    I'm wearing Le Parfum de Thérèse today. We're attending an art reception. Later today, I'm going to begin training for my autumn hike. I have almost three months to get ready. I'm starting out with basic yoga poses/stretches and doing my physical therapy exercises.

    Happy birthday to Kbe! He's having quite a good year, and it couldn't happen to a more deserving guy.

    I'm envious of all of you who are sensing the approach of autumn. We've got 6 to 8 more weeks of blistering heat here, plus the approach of peak hurricane season. I'm going to supershower this afternoon, douse myself with Jean Naté splash and powder to horrify Trilby, and flake out under the aircon with a new Robert Crais detective novel recommended by Foxbins.

    Happy Birthday, Kbe!

    And good vibes to you, Mike.

    My new roof is on, and now my new gutters are up. This week they will come back and do fascia repair.

    I couldn't watch TV yesterday evening for all the Emergency Broadcast System alerts. They couldn't finish one alert for Western Tennessee before they broke into broadcast an emergency alert for Middle Tennessee. Torrential rains! Flash flooding! Wind gusts at 60 mph!

    I got some wind--a moderate amount, a few leaves in the yard, and three tenths of an inch of rain. 0.3 inches, not the 3.0 that was warned against. I suppose the worst of it went just north of me. Today is 15F degrees cooler and I've pulled some weeds in my flower garden.

    Happy Birthday, kbe!

    Shycat, I'm happy about your new roof and glad the storms weren't severe where you are. This summer's weather has been so odd everywhere.

    Cook.bot, I hope you enjoy your day, it sounds wonderful.

    I am cleaning and doing last-minute packing, leaving for Honolulu tomorrow morning. It will be nice to be in a place cooler than here. I think I might need a second bottle of Rhubarbe Ecarlate, it's all I feel like wearing lately.

    THANK YOU all for the kind words, good vibes and just for being YOU. You all are the best.

    Today I stayed in bed late. Woke up and had chicken wings for breakfast (don't ask) and coffee and did some work for the office. Then I went to my family's house to see my Dad's family and cousins and eat lots of Spanish food and watch the Olympics. It was nice to be around family with kids and smiles and everyone laughing. Everyone knows what's going on with my mom and of course my time with my parents won't be fun...so I needed this. I wore:

    Azuree Soleil Eau Fraiche by Estee Lauder



    From a decant that I bought from a BN (that stuff is becoming harder and harder to find - as Lauder replaced it with the Bronze Goddess and all of it's endless flankers). This one smells more mineralic, for lack of a better word. I always see 'salt' in my mind when I first huff this. I love it.
