    Hello!
    I'm a bit under the weather, luckily I'm working from home this week.

    One spray of Mon Guerlain EDT today, 2 sprays of Lalique Le Parfum yesterday.
    I don't want to go without perfume at all, but I wanted to keep it very light.

    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..."

    Feel better soon, Clockwork.

    It's a very "dreich" day here and I have the feeling
    that we have seen the last of the summer.

    I resumed rehearsals with my choir last night after a
    gap of 18 months and it was so joyful to all be singing
    together again (the Faure Requiem.) I was buzzing at the end of it.

    My SOTD is Alien by Thierry Mugler.
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    kewart, l think you're right. lt's been raining here this morning, & it's definitely cooler. l remember well from childhood the joy of singing with a choir, l'm so pleased to hear you're back in business!

    l'm pottering about at home today, & giving a second wearing to my sample of Symmetry by Sarah Baker Perfumes.

    Can't help but notice Jon's absence. Still hot here too, Phleg: 90F/32C all this coming week.

    I'm feeling off kilter today too, but only because I had a lousy night's sleep. I stupidly ate fried fish at 11pm yesterday and it completely screwed up my sleep, plus I dreamed that all my teeth turned royal blue, and that woke me up in a sweat.

    I got a new traveller of Osmanthe Yunnan, so inaugurating that today. Still my favorite osmanthus I've tried so far.

    Toot-toot! I've boarded the Guerlain train to share the ride with you sweeties. Lovely Coquin.

    I'm sending my best vibes to all of you to feel well and sleep well. I, too, haven't been able to feel 100%, but hope to get there eventually.

    Jon must be having a brutal work week.

    I'm also on the poor sleep train due to jet lag and I'm freezing, it's 20F colder here than in Honolulu. However, I am plastered with kitties keeping parts of me warm and wearing Salome on a day when Jon is not here.

    Does Jon hate Salome? That would seem odd, since he loves so many other heavy animalics, like La Nuit and Bal a Versailles.

    Were you only gone a week, Foxy? That seems like a very short trip to endure all that jet lag for.

    Today, I have a beef shoulder roast getting a 24 hour dry brine in my fridge, with chicken stock on the extremely clean stove-thigh meat out and reserved, bones back in to simmer--to make chicken and slick dumplings. This is one I have practiced with a lot, from a family recipe, and very mean judges have confirmed I make it as well as my mother.


    Regarding my recent fire,


    One sister replied "A grease fire you can blow out? Your stove must be immaculate! You just emailed to brag!"
    Sister two "Yeah. If my stove caught on fire you could see it from space."

    Sisters are good to have.

    Still in Violetta di Parma today.
    Aaaaand, this isn't funny anymore.

    Thank you dears for all the get well wishes! They are needed. I also wish to feel better to everyone who need it - Trilby, Cook.bot, Q and others who are not at their current best. For now I'm medicating on hot herbal teas and excess sleep.

    Teardrop, how is your wrist by now? Hopefully it's healing well, too.

    Hopefully Jon is also alright.

    Cook.bot, but why, Royal blue is a wonderful colour. Unless it does not fit your complexion of course!

    Jon can't stand Salome. I think it's the cumin that gets him. I was gone only a week because the stove was supposed to be delivered on Saturday so I scheduled the new cabinets and countertops for the Wed, Thurs, Fri prior. But no stove...
    The jet lag doesn't last long, it's only 3 hours difference but the first day is the worst.
