  1. Thank you everyone for the good wishes! My back is feeling mostly better, just some residual stiffness. I've been taking epsom baths with a little splash of Youth Dew bath oil and they're sooooo relaxing [smilie=th_51991986] My kitty Linus loathes Tiger Balm, though--he stopped sleeping in my chair at night 'cuz I guess I left too much odor behind ;)


    Rivercat ~ How's your back feeling? Did you have something stressful in your life going on when it started hurting? Many back injuries occur "coincidentally" at times when we are under stress. Our emotions love to hide there and in many other places throughout the body. Physical pain is a good distraction, and for many people, less painful than the emotional stuff.


    Honeybear, that is so true! Work has been stressful for a while and I haven't been on top of my usual running and yoga routines which normally helps me burn off a lot of the tensions, so it's not at all surprising in retrospect that the back thing popped up [smilie=iagree]


    Next week is spring break for both kids so we're taking a road trip to northern CA to see DH's brother and family and then we'll head on up to OR to spend a few days with my in-laws.


    Happy birthday and safe travels, mpfand! The weather here is nutty right now, but supposedly cooling off a bit so it should be a decent drive up the 5 :thwetkissf:


    Tonight's scents are:

    Glade Hello Spring - terrible throw on this

    Sweet Fixations Lavender Serendipity - not my fave blend of hers but using it up


    'night all!

  2. Rivercat - your Lime Blossom & Basil sounds like a good one!


    Debra, it started out super light but is now throwing reasonably well for my small living room. Not bad for $5 at Marshalls ;)



    Me thinks I have too much wax. [smilie=th_roll]


    LOL! I'm always surprised when I "rediscover" things in my various stashes. It's like Christmas [smilie=th_biggestgrin]


    The weather is just bizarre. Y'all are getting tons of snow and we're in the 70s again with no cold or rain in sight :wacko:


    Burning BBW Sparkling Limeade. Very clean, almost soapy scent. Not sweet at all.

  3. My pets leave presents on the patterned rugs...I never see it until it is too late.


    Aren't they cute that way? [smilie=th_cha66]


    Michele, I hope everything calms down soon [smilie=th_empathy]


    MaggieMae, you're right about this year being awful for sickness. I was at a trade show this week, and it seemed like everyone was coming down with something or just getting over something. I'm washing my hands and popping vitamin C like crazy [smilie=th_thConfus_55]


    Tonight's scents are:

    Olivia Blake Lime Blossom & Basil

    Sweet Fixations Lavender Seredipity

  4. Sweet, the White Barn line with the colored glass and fancy white labels are missing lids now, but the Sparkling Limeade from the new Spring collection had one. Very hard to tell from the photos on the site, so be sure to save your old lids! [smilie=grrr]


    MaggieMae, you're poor DDs! Sounds like they ended up with the crabbiest tester of the bunch [smilie=th_thanimeomega_emoticon Hopefully they'll get a nicer one next time.


    Tonight's scents are YC Warm Woolen Mittens and Glade Woodside Library.

  5. Perfect thread title, Biolaeagles! [smilie=th_c61]


    MaggieMae, Happy Birthday to DDs! [smilie=party] I hope everything works out ok for the driving test.


    BBW is trying that trendy thing of just using a slip of cardboard over the wicks instead of a regular lid for some of their lines. The cynical side of me thinks it's a $$$ saving move disguised as trendiness [smilie=th_roll]


    Today's candles:

    Olivia Blake Lime Blossom & Basil - found this at Marshalls on clearance; pretty, clean scent but disappointing throw

    BBW Sparkling Limeade - this one came with a lid ;)

  6. Debra, clever improvised mouse trap! [smilie=th_happy096]


    I ordered a couple of BBW candles in a recent 2 for $24 sale, but didn't realize the new White Barn 3-wicks don't have lids! [smilie=th_hmph] Luckily I still had a few almost-empties to swipe lids from. Without the lids, they don't stack well on the shelf. Gotta be driving the SAs nuts at the stores :o


    Today's scents:

    BBW Twisted Peppermint

    BBW Fresh Balsam

    Sweet Fixations Key Lime Noel

  7. Rivercat - [smilie=iagree] It takes a LOT of patience! How is he when company comes...does he head to back under the bed or has he decided to be brave?


    Back under the bed, of course ;) He did let my cat sitter scratch his head one time when I was on a biz trip last month, so that was encouraging!


    4.30 is not a good time to go out, no matter how adorable a pup you are! :o


    Tonight's candles are YC Sparkling Angel and BBW Heirloom Pumpkin.

  8. They also have a Harvest Gathering (never sniffed that one) dupe....did U try that B&BW's candle?


    I've never seen that one, but the description sounds delicious! [smilie=yes]


    Honeybear, excellent news on the kitty! It took exactly one month for my timid kitty Linus to let me scratch his head while he was still living under my bed, and another month for him to come out and explore while I was around, and now he's taken over the place. It takes a lot of patience, but definitely pays off! [smilie=th_LOVE]


    Tonight's candles are YC Let it Snow and BBW Vanilla Bean Noel.

  9. That's so weird that everything is blooming already!

    Right? Everyone's allergies are going nuts here and it's only February! [smilie=th_thanimeomega_emoticon We had a crazy windstorm last night and today, so the temps came down a lot.



    Good Monday morning! [smilie=th_c2e41937] I'm burning B&BW's Pumpkin Carving...luv pumpkin scents all year round! [smilie=th_pardon]

    I'm so envious! All my Pumpkin Carving has been burned up [smilie=th_cry2yw3] Ten Digit Creations has a dupe, so I'm itching to try that one soon.


    Tonight's candles are YC Warm Woolen Mittens and BBW Trick or Treat.
