I got suckered again – I have a good nose, so I appreciate a gentle scented something in the house – candles, plug-ins, etc. You must be careful as some are overpowering. Some smell artificial too! This week I was in a store for something else and I smelled something wonderful. They were infusion reeds. The kind stuck in a bottle of good smelling liquid. It dispersed over the area. It was expensive but I had to buy it. It smells good here but It doesn’t cover a big area. My dilemma is where to put it to get the best bang for the buck. Still working on that but it smells so much better than the “old people and cat fart” smell that usually lives here (Do they make a candle like that?)
Seriously? – When it comes to pants, I’m a black or navy person with maybe a summer color thrown in. I was cruising my favorite athletic clothing site and saw a new style. It comes in oyster and aspen green. That’s it! The green is not as attractive as it sounds. More like muddy green. Or a nice spring green rolled in a mud puddle. Nope. Not a standard color offered. I hope this isn’t a trend.
The new 24 – This week in 24 hours I have four doc appointments. How did that happen? Yes, I made them all. Some are follow-ups from the beginning of the year. Some are “first available.” I hate that. I like when each one is surrounded by a chunk of time so I can properly dread each appointment in turn.
Friends – I’m having lunch with an old friend. It’s always hard to schedule and about 50% of the time, one of us cancels or postpones. Where to meet is a discussion. Ever since I’ve known her, she has been on a diet of some sort. Mostly to lose weight but there were cleanses and other reasons. We had been meeting at one restaurant which won’t do anymore as she’s on a vegan diet now. When we finally get there, it’s fun but the getting there is a challenge.
More friends – I walked and lunched with my old walking partner this past week. She is amazing for 87. Her mind is alert and her body is healthy. She lost her husband last year and I’m surprised how she has bounced back. She is enjoying being by herself. It’s a first. She got married at 18 so she went from her parents’ home to her married home. Being totally her own boss is new to her and she’s smiling a lot. Yes, she misses her husband but like many who have dealt with a partner dying over a period of years, she did a lot of her mourning while he was still alive.
So how was your week?
