Currently, March 2016


Books: A Star Called Henry by Doyle. Another Dublin novel. It seems to be my theme of late - they are a genre onto themselves. (I also handed off to one of the nieces Gail Carriger's Finishing School series - she immediate began devouring with delight.) 


Gratitude: Shared interests; sensitive skin laundry detergent; springtime flowers brightening up the world; new perfumes; and the lure of new spaces.

Happy: Got a few new dresses for work! (Following Rule #10 about only buying clothes that make you want to do a small dance.) Spring Easter sale - this is my second year hitting it and I think it's about to become an annual event. Shopping in person was more tiring but more successful than my Stitch Fix experiment - probably for the same reason, trying on lots more stuff.

Perfume: Still finishing finishing out Passiflora by Nest because it's still winter-dry out and I love the accompanying hand cream. This month was for playing with new perfumes, starting with Forget-Me-Not  from the Library of Flowers, (Kirimashi Air by the Library of Flowers remains in the rotation as a light day splash, but I'm hoarding it a bit for my upcoming travels - as mentioned, I think it's the perfect light travel perfume.) 

A few Sundays ago I was hugged at church and told I smelled lovely - I had on Forget-Me-Not! It's a delicate floral with a white orchid heart and an osmanthus start. If you don't know what osmanthus smells like - you are not alone, I had to look it up! The description is of a delicate fruity-leather, which I agree with - it gives depth to the floral notes. Truth? I may just be in love with Chinese flowers - but osmanthus will never replace my beloved peony as my favorite flower.

Random: I'm just going to say it. It's Not Your Father's Ginger Ale is less good (by far) than It's Not Your Father's Root Beer.

Stress: Moving. Need I say more?

Take-away - Things fall into place when they should, but you have to have the framework in place. Build the frame.
