  1. Hello all! Mag, continued prayers for you and your family. Thinking of you my friend. Michele, the pictures from the baptisms were beautiful. God bless the babies! The noteworthy scent from two days ago was Destination Wax Malabar Coast - cracked peppercorn and Ocean Breeze. It was so clean and refreshing, very strong, and one of those scents that permeates everything. I loved it but will use much less next time. Sharon, Susan, Debra, Valerie, I hope you all are doing well. Hugs to all!
  2. Good morning all, I hope everyone is doing well. Yesterday it was: Sparkles Lemon Fruity Loops, just as it sounds, with a lovely fresh lemon leading the way. Massively strong and long-lasting. Take care everyone, have a good weekend.
  3. Thank you Mag, you are such a love. I hope you will get some answers too. Sometimes I think these doctors are playing a guessing game and we should put them on the previously mentioned slow boat... I'm glad that he seems to like the aide well enough so you can get at least some relief. I took a late walk today and it was so gorgeous outside. I am way behind on YouTube videos but somehow I think life will go on until i get them done. DH bought a beautiful white cake with white icing, spring flowers, and sweet sentiment written on top from the same bakery where we got our wedding cake. So he was very sweet and I am postponing his boat reservation, for now. I am melting Camu Camu from Scentsy, which is a gorgeous fruity scent from a fruit I know nothing about, but this must remain in my life, very luscious and strong without being too sweet. Take care all!!
  4. Mag!!!! It's so good to hear from you, and with such great news. This is the best setup imaginable for you and your father. I'm so glad you found someone you are comfortable with. You must be utterly exhausted after the past months. I'm so very happy for you. There is a special place in heaven for YOU, my friend. What a faithful daughter you are...but you can't go it alone forever and I'm so very glad for this aide. You're right - that takes somebody special to move into a stranger's house - everything totally unfamiliar - and to take care of them full time. I couldn't do it. I know that you have done everything to make it comfortable and welcoming for her. Still, that is daunting to think of taking on a job like that. I hope they will get on - it won't be perfect, nothing is, but hopefully it will be sufficient to provide excellent care and allow you to get back to your own family, job, and myriad of responsibilities. I don't know how you have been doing this for so long. And - you are MELTING?! Oh how wonderful! We take it for granted, that we can do this everyday - until we can't. Your scent sounds amazing - raspberry, lilac and lavender - I don't think I've ever had anything like that and it sounds so beautiful. Enjoy, enjoy!! For me I'm finally through all the Scentsy Spring/Summer testers - it took me awhile and I can say I've enjoyed almost all of them. One exception would be the one I just ended - Mad for Melon - which is honeydew, freesia and poppy. The floral is heavy and off-putting to me and just doesn't seem to go with the melon. I love florals but this is just not my preference at all. I'm so happy for you, Mag. It really made my day to read this. Big big hug and I hope you can relax a little bit now and enjoy life.
  5. Hi everyone, Michele, it's also overcast here.. We just had a big crashing thunderstorm but it seems to be calming down now. No walk for me today since there has been lightning. DH's car is in the shop so today he has my Jeep with all the Scentsy labeling on it. I told him to be ready to hand out catalogs if someone asks. He said, oh I forgot - I'm in the Scentsymobile. Today it's: Scentsy Coastal Sunset - coconut, sandalwood, and Amber - not my usual type at all but I actually think this is beautiful. Very creamy and luxurious. I think this is a dupe for a WoodWick candle. Scentsy Lavender Cotton - I like this more than I thought I would... Often cotton has a chlorine note to me that I'm not a fan of, but this is not so sharp and the lavender is comforting. Still going in the living room - Yankee Candle Easy Melt Cup in Easter Bouquet - This is so fresh and green with its beautiful white florals - on Day 3 and still lovely, finally losing its potency. I had a big waxident with this the other night but scraped it up and put it back in the warmer. Take care all.
  6. Good morning all! Michele, I'm glad you got to go to the beach house. It's good to have a change of pace. Are folks starting to trickle back in down there? Rain and more rain here. Getting ready for the cicadas to start emerging. Still on my Yankee Candle Easy Melt Cup of Easter Bouquet. Lovely sweet floral. I had a little waxident with it last night, butterfingers that I was. But I got it all cleaned up. Not sure what is next... Trying to make my way through all my Scentsy testers for spring/summer. Happy Monday everybody, stay well.
  7. Hello all, Quiet in here... Mag continued prayers...I know you are facing tremendous ordeals. Beautiful day in SW Ohio, 68 F and not humid. DH had his second shot and has been very tired and grumpy, so I am ready for him to feel better. Last night and today it's been a big fave: Scentsy Walnut Raisin Muffin - Just like it sounds - with big plump juicy raisins, honestly it makes my mouth water just describing it. I will say that this wax seems to last a very long time for me, as in days. Hugs all around... Stay safe.
  8. Hello all! Michele, your scents sound lovely. I hope you have a little more downtime with the shower behind you... But I know the babies take a lot of time! I had our contractors come over to clean out the gutters and they found some roof damage from hail while they were up there... So we will contact the insurance. I knew we would need to address the roof at some time because it is older. Well yesterday it was Scentsy Make A Splash - melon, green apple, turquoise waters - Fresh and a little bit fruity, not overly sweet- love! Good and strong without killing everyone. And today it has been EA Mermaid Tonic - Rosemary mint, twisted peppermint, salty sea air, vanilla bean Noel - minty and beachy, the SSA not too strong, lovely medium high throw. I'm realizing that I prefer a medium to medium-high throw. I don't like to be blown out of the house or have it so strong that I can't concentrate on anything else. Judging by a lot of comments here and on Instagram though, it seems like a lot more people prefer a 9-10 strength and throw, and I think I used to feel that way too until this last year. I'm not sure why that changed for me but there it is. Mag, continued prayers for your father, yourself, and your family. Hugs to all.
  9. Hello all! Michele, I'm so happy that your daughter's bridal shower was a beautiful success! It must have been lovely to all be together in her honor. What did her new little niece and nephew make of it all?? Mag, continuing to pray for your father - and for you. I hope you will be able to get in-home care for him so you can get some relief. I had a wonderful day at the hospital yesterday. We've added some new music to the songbook and those songs were well received. I felt like a big part of my life was missing this last year without being able to go there, and it's lovely to be back. Well I'm enjoying the Scentsy scent of the month for May: Palm Trees and Ocean Breeze - dewy palm leaf, coconut water, and a touch of fresh pineapple. I love this scent so much and it's a good performer - medium-high in each room with just one cube. Yesterday I did a trio of tropical scents to celebrate our deliverance from ice and snow - two from Britta's Creepy Treasures and one from Sparkle's. They were all fruity and wonderful and performed well. Have a lovely evening everyone.
  10. Hello everyone, Maggie, continued hugs and prayers for you and your father. Michele, tomorrow is the bridal shower and I imagine you are extra busy! I'm sure it will all be gorgeous. Well yesterday I went to the hospital for reorientation and it filled my heart with joy... So good to see everybody and it will be good to start our groups again. I feel like a big chunk of my life has been missing without them. I need to mark the calendar today because for once in my life I have no outstanding wax orders. Can this be possible? I'm sure this won't last long... I tried to order a fizzy sampler from Zeep yesterday but it was sold out. Well this morning it's: Destination Wax Ghostess (Parma Violets, toasted marshmallow) and it's so strong and beautiful... You have to love violet scent for this one, which I do, and that cloud of marshmallow wrapped around it... Divine. Take care all.
  11. Hello all, Mag, continued prayers for you and your father. Michele, the Rainbow Melts sounds so fresh and beautiful. That bridal shower came up in a hurry and I'm sure you are extra busy. Susan - L3 Rose is always so lovely! It's good to hear you are doing well. Today it's Scentsy scent of the month for May, Palm Trees and Ocean Breeze. This has palm fronds, coconut husk, and a little bit of pineapple - absolutely adore. It is more fresh and green than fruity. Tomorrow I have a reorientation at the hospital. I am very very excited to see every one again. Take care all.
  12. Good morning all, Mag, continued prayers for you and your family. Today it's Scentsy Apricot Vanilla - soft and comforting and absolutely beautiful. Medium throw which gradually builds, appropriate for a smaller room but just lovely. Have a good Monday all.
  13. Happy birthday to our dear Mag!!! You have had such a tough year and I pray that things will get better. Much love and a big hug!!
  14. Hi everyone! Mag, thinking about you as you care for your father. Prayers that he is starting to recover. Michele, you are right, we still have to be careful. A friend of mine had her first shot but not her second, let her guard down a bit, and caught Covid. So she is sick now. For me, it's still going to be masks and eating outside. Definitely happy things are opening up, but with care. Hi Susan, how is it going in your care world? Well today it's been: Scentsy Bloomin' Beach - rose, peony and sea jasmine - this is a sweet floral with the rose leading the way. I'm not getting any kind of a sea air note, which is fine - beautiful scent. It was strong at first but got lighter quickly - too bad because it's a lovely scent. It's still present but not strong. Take care all!
  15. Hello all, Susan, Michele, I love Avobath too! Michele, I'm glad your older VCS is holding up well. Today it's: Empire Alchemy When Stars Collide - strawberry, grapefruit, spearmint, peppermint - This is the second time I have ordered this from this vendor and it is one of my favorites. Very fresh, not overly sweet, uplifting. Only a week and a half until I go back to the hospital. I will be very glad to see everyone. Take care all and stay well!
