Today burning some candles: YC Raspberry Cream and Slatkin's Vanilla Shortbread. I hope they play nice together.
Have a great day all!

I'm melting Cheryl's Sweet Lemon Sugar. Luv luv luv it!
Yes, that's the same kitty. It's changed a lot since last week. I don't have a favorite, I swear. This one just happened to be the most awake when I had the camera.
Crisp Champagne smells effervescent, dry, not sweet but a little musky. It's a votive so i need to stick my nose in it to smell it.
I'm burning Haley's Sinfully Hot this evening.
Enjoy your "me" time, Maurie, and don't feel bad about it. We all need a little space. Gail, we might need a RHS support group. Mine's a busy body who can not sit still. I, on the other hand, have no problem with a little down time. When he's around, we have to always be doing something, fixing something, cleaning something, ack.
All I can say is most of the time I appreciated having that third day to myself. You know what I'm talking about with the F.D.
Loving this one!
I just got Berry Bramble in my order yesterday. I think I'll melt it this morning too. You've talked me into it.
I also have Litsea and Basil from LSC melting in the bedroom.

It looks like a beautiful day.
Maurie-Don't feel bad. I do understand about the DH being home. My DH was out of work for a bit a few years back (it was only for 6 weeks) and I was craving that alone time. He always was doing something. He never knew how to sit still. Sometimes we just need to relax a bit.
Melting LSC Buttermint Candy and Haley's Buttermints. Burning LOL 32 Degrees.

My DH is a gem. We've been married nearly 45 years! But he's kind of a control freak and says, "You should..." a lot. And he never shuts up. Sometimes I have to fight the urge to say, simply, "Zip it!" But oh my, gotta love our guys!
Okay, gotta go get busy. Too much to do today! Accompanying me is CCCC Farmhouse Apple, doing such a lovely job helping me stay on task!

I guess I have one of those rare husbands in that he has been retired for 14 years now and we have had no problems. He likes to hang out in his garage or his study and never bothers me. We both are people who need a lot of space and so it has worked out great. We enjoy all of our time together which is usually in the evenings but he doesn't care where I go or anything like that and it works out great. I couldn't stand it if he was following me around Wal Mart, etc. like I see so many retired couples doing. We would both be crazed if he wanted to do that. Ha!

I am burning a B & BW candle in stress relief. That's one of my favorite scents from there. This is helping with the left over musty smell from the original sub floor...
We got the new sub floor in the DR, Kit and BR over the weekend. I hope all is well with everyone and having a good week.

I'm melting CFTKR "Iced Lemon Snaps" from yesterday's arrivals... It is to DIE for! Strong buttery sugar cookie, slight lemon notes. Very delicious bakery, and a "must re-order" for me! Also, even though it is a lighter fragrance, 1/2 of a bundt tart is scenting my living room nicely on my 24w plate warmer.
Ok, I have to retract my earlier statement. Although this one started nicely, after about an hour, it fell apart. The lemon was gone, and when my son woke up, he captured it perfectly - "Mom, why does it reek of butter in here?"
Ugh. He was right. It really had started to smell of straight butter.

Cinnamon Zucchini Rolls
Zucchini Drop Cookies
They all smell AMAZING!!!! I really can't figure out which one is the BEST!!!!! All I know is I'm GONNA HAFTA get all three in bags!!!

Have a great night everyone. Thanks for all of your support and understanding regarding the "me time". Don't get me wrong, my husband is never a bother and lets me come and go as I please but I just miss MY house and the quiet times in MY house............lol. Its really OUR house and I get that, but I have been in charge of this place for years now and had a certain system. This has just rocked both of our boats, but we will make it. After 27 years, I think I'll keep him.

I'm melting LOL's Cinnamon Apple Delight. Mmmmmmm.....good!

I just am burning one candle tonight-Slatkins Salty Caramel. I love this one. I have burned it at least 3 times already and am happy to report there have been no wick issues.

Daughter walked in the house and said it smells so good in here like pink sugar coffee. The mixture does work well together even though Bushels of Fun is not a coffee scent.
