|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 :)
Hee, I think I remember that chain store! I might have to google. ;)
Sounds like a nice scent. Good luck with your 5, 7 and 9 duties :)
Thanks, T, I have made it through. [falls on face]
Happy Friday to you, with good things! :)

Hoping your voice doesn't disappear at all! Best of luck with 5, 7 and 9.
Your hope saved my voice, K! I can still talk, mostly. :))
Hugs hugs and a great Friday!
Good thoughts on your voice!!!
Yay for pleasant smells and cute UPS guys!
Hugs! Tomorrow's Friday!
Never have I felt the truth of "Thank God it's Friday" so strongly. :)
Hugs hugs and a great start to the weekend!

Yay for new perfume. Sends soothing voice retaining drinks.
Tea is on order after Master Danger and I take our walk. :)
Hugs, L, Happy Friday!
Sounds like a lovely scent!
The scent is very nice indeed. I'm happy.
Hugs, Gwynne, happy Friday!

Busy as bees, you are. Bee-like!
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.
I made it through! :)
Master Danger and I send thanks and good thoughts for a great Friday for you.
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.
