04:16 pm - in between shifts
Just flying by in between work-things: proper official work is done, and now I have other professional and volunteer duties to attend (at 5, 7, and 9, which should be pleasing for the orderly progression but SO ISN'T). We persevere!

A quick thing:
I was whingeing a couple of weeks ago about finding a new scent. After googling away, I stumbled upon a description of Paul Smith Woman (as seen here on the Paul Smith website: A magnificent floral fragrance, vivid and woody with a combination of bergamot and clementine, notes of blackcurrant, green pear and a hint of pink peppercorns. That sounds about right, I thought, and oooh, I love Paul Smith. So then I found a small sample size on sale and ordered online forthwith.

Today the cute UPS guy arrived early, and when I slipped outside (due to the vociferous displeasure of the Dangerous Dog), he said cheerily, "It's not wine this time, sorry!" Not as sorry as I am, I thought, with nightmares of 5, 7, and 9 ahead. Anyhoo, I have applied, and after a couple of hours' drydown, I can say that I am pleased, pleased indeed.

And Master Danger has settled down after the evil incursion of the parcel-deliverer, so yay.

I am about to lose my voice, however, so please think good thoughts that it doesn't disappear until, say, 9:30. Please and thank you.

May you get delights today, however, they come!

Oh, I'll have to check that out!

Although I must admit that 5*7*9 reminds me of a chain store from my teens :)

I would have liked to have some honey at the end of the work day, now that you mention bees.... :)

Hugs, A, and a good day!

If you're reading this, you must have survived. So hooray for you and your wonderful scent! To say nothing of the dog.

Sounds like a delectable scent! In today's mail (or possibly yesterday's as I did not leave the house then to check the box) a shipment arrived from Folio, including the new edition of Brave New World introduced by Ursula LeGuin and a newly illustrated collection of Oscar Wilde's fairy tales plus yet more exotic yarn (yay).

I do so hope your voice is still with you and that all required extra-curricular tasks are completed for the week!

Hugs and a mug of whiskey-laced hot lemon water...

Ooooh, yay for your packages in the mail! And yay for Oscar Wilde. :)

Hugs hugs, and thanks for reminding me of the efficacy of lemon water (I'll skip the whiskey). Happy Friday, ALH!

The idea of a hint of pink peppercorns is delightful.

I hope your 5, 7, and 9 duties were easily completed.

I've now worn Paul Smith Woman several days, and it really is working for me. Maybe it's the pink peppercorns. :)

My Thursday duties were done. That's about the best I can say.

Hugs!
