  1. Good Morning All! Michele...how is your Dad? Hope he is still improving! Amy...hope you are enjoying your week off...it seems to be long overdue!! I will let ya know if I find a scent replacement...although I'm not feeling lucky. This morning it's Meadowlark by Golden Willow Waxes Have a good day.
  2. Not really....it's so hard to get any ingredients. Although I've wanted to make sushi...if I can get a hold of nori....I'll make some! The person below me has a favorite type of sushi.
  3. Oh Michele...just saw your post here on CF. I'm so sorry that your Dad caught that virus but so glad he seems to be doing better! He's a strong man!! I am praying for his recovery! Everyone is melting lovely sounding scents! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and/or Passover. Amy...isn't that weird about the "Peace in the Grass"? It seems logical that different brands of fragrance oil would smell a little different but somehow I don't expect it to be really different! Plus...I agree that the ratio matters but I just assumed when they didn't ask the ratio, that they'd just make it even. The only vendor that I've used that asks the ratio is Tara's. She's got some wonderful customs as well. Yesterday it was CFTKR Pineapple Pear Pound Cake. Melted Duck American Made and Melted Duck I'm His. Today is Lavender Shortbread Cookies by CFOW. Have a good one.
  4. No...but you never know. The person below me has a summer getaway/vacation already planned.
  5. Sharon...spending time in the garden sounds lovely. Thanks Valerie....but who's Pluto? I better try to find out. Amy...thanks Amy. So where'd you try to replicate the scent? I was thinking of trying to do that myself but I'd have to figure out who'd do it....hmmm. Great news about having off...finally! It's the last of Coconut Candy Shop by VRC...delicious!
  6. Hmmmm....it would be jellybeans. I do like jellybeans. What's your favorite? The person below me likes dying eggs.
  7. Hello All. Amy...yes, the masks are very stifling after a while...and my glasses fog up. Lol That Green Thumb scent sounds amazing! As for the comfort foods...it's funny...we haven't had Mac and cheese in the house in years but this week it found it's way into our pantry! Chef BoyR Dee, I've never bought...my childhood friend used to serve it for "friend lunches" and it made me gag...of course I never told her that. Valerie...yes...it is a soothing hobby. Thanks Michele...so do yours! Its been an old fav of mine...Peace In The Grass. Now it's The Joker by Supertarts. Goodnight.
  8. Good Morning...today it's L3 Tangerine Mango Whipped Cream...I am soooo ready for all of these springy-summer scents!
  9. Oh my gosh Michele....that sounds delicious! Tonight it's The Rainbow Connection by Savannah Blue...raspberry, kumquat, lemon, pear, blueberry and plum. Goodnight
  10. I have not thought of sewing masks...yet. Might come to that soon. The person below me likes macaroni and cheese. ( oh....I'm cooking like usual....nothing special)
  11. Hello All! Thanks Amy and Michele regarding the title. Valerie...Lolol...I know it seems that it would be easier to stay home with rainy skies but since I can't leave anyway....I'd rather be able to sit out in the yard. If it's raining then it's really tough. Amy...your words are so true...and said so perfectly. Michele...wow that scent is a cornucopia of fragrances....sounds interesting! Thanks Cyn! Will do. Yesterday and today has been the wonderful Karma from a talented CF pal...I absolutely love this scent....it has kept me feeling calm during these tough days. Goodnight
  12. Good Morning! The sun is finally out! Much easier to stay put when the sun is shining. Amy...glad you finally have masks! Yay! Hope everyone is well and staying safe. Yesterday it was SGA Gingerbread Cookies Whip Cream Sweet Pumpkin...back on again this morning. Will switch it up later. Ok...it's Shortbread Cookies Pie Crust Apple Dumplings and Blueberry Muffin by Wax Workshoppe... Have a good one.
  13. Hi Michele and great to see you posting Susan. Glad all is well with you both. Michele...I was thinking the same thing, so I started fishing around the parish website and found a link for people who like to contribute electronically due to different circumstances....health, age, travel, etc. Didn't even know it was on there...so I signed up and did that. One less worry for me. Changed up the warmers this morning...upstairs it's Macintosh Apple by Tiffany's...thank you CF pal...this is wonderful...I had forgotten about her. Downstairs it was CFTKR Vanilla Wafers which smells sour...ugh...why? So I added to the bowls...CFOW Pralines Strawberry Jam Marshmallow in the one and The Melting Duck Under The Gazebo (fresh cut grass, leaves and Japanese Cherry Blossom) in the other. Much better.
  14. Awww Amy..those memories are precious!!! so...what did you think of cannolis? Lol I do like camping in a tent but for short times...plus I need an air mattress under my sleeping bag. The days of laying in the hard earth are gone. Ouch. The person below me is cooking a lot more since the covid-19 cane to town.
  15. Hello! Late night once again...my days and nights are all askew since I am not working. Amy...I am so glad you are ok. I know how it feels to lose track of the days...and you are so busy it must whiz by. Wow..you chucked your bins? You are a committed lady..good for you! Will you be getting a break from traveling soon? Thanks about my PA trip...yes, it was super relaxing with my son and my twin girls. Michele...yes, I see NY is having a tough time but it will end at some point. My church posted a notice that they anticipate the quarantine to last many weeks if not months. That's what I figured as well although it seems daunting. But we can do it...the good news is most people get better just like Valerie said. Good news indeed. Hope you are all well...Debra, Sharon, Valerie, Susan, Aria, Cyn , Michelle and all our CF pals!! And just as Amy said...thank you Cyn!!! Its been Orange Danish and Coffee by Front Porch...soooooo old but still throwing like a champ!
  16. Good Morning! Hope everyone is staying healthy! Thanks Michele and hope you are well. The girls and I are home now. Their area is about a week behind us Re this virus...it was amazing to come home and find the supermarkets filled with food and the maximum purchase on only a few things. Feels like we are slowly returning to normal. Amy...hope you are ok!! I'm sorry about you not being able to volunteer....I'm sure everyone there misses you as much as you miss them! Hopefully, you will be back to it very soon! Michelle...if you happen to stop by! its been Voodoo Praline Cookie by Bohemian Life...might add some coffee to it. Have a good day.
  17. Good Morning and happy Friday...I think it's Friday...(I checked)...it's Friday. Hope everyone is doing ok. Still in PA. Changed the warmers to Green Clover & Aloe by Savannah Blue. Wanted a nice springy scent this morning.
  18. Oh yeah!!! However, I'm trying to wait for a serious change in the temps. The person below me has lived in an apartment.
  19. Greetings All. Been staying in Pennsylvania for the week...we've all been quarantined for 2 weeks so we've got a circle of safety happening here and so nice to be out of the same four walls. Probably heading home today or tomorrow. The girls are melting a custom I made @OPT called Flower Child...nice and calming during these times. I hope you are all safe and healthy. If you're looking for a pretty interesting sci-fi movie to watch, try.....I AM MOTHER. Take care!
  20. Good Morning all. I keep telling my kids they will be looking back on this soon enough. Yes, Valerie....You are right...as with all things....it will pass. OMG Valerie....yes, I've watched those FF episodes on YouTube!! Hysterical! I hope you are feeling better each day. I also don't watch the news but lately I'm getting constant updates from others...I do think some of my loved ones watch the news too much and it's stressing them out! Michele...yes, for sure. As is human nature, we usually do take things for granted. I hope we won't forget that when things go back to normal. I keep thinking we are surely blessed that this isn't happening in the dead of winter. Amy...hope you made it home safely! Probably time to change up the warmers but recently it was candles by Shorties in Teakwood & Violet....I absolutely love this fragrance but they don't sell it anymore. Have a good day.
  21. Not yet...it's still a bit chilly at night. The person below me likes to listen to music as they clean.
  22. Good Morning all. Debra...I hope you are ok...haven't seen you post in a while. Valerie...hope you are ok and a belated to your girls. Amy...I'm so surprised you are still working but as you say...it's needed for sure. Please be careful. Do you head home today? Sharon...your Darley Lama order is adorable! Things are still crazy here although I'm finally able to laugh at some of those memes that are out. Laughter IS the best medicine. Take care everyone! Its been Savannah Blue's Boyfriends Truck and I'm finally switching to Bakers Dozen.
  23. Thanks Amy. And thank you Sharon. Just got notice that all of our stores, theaters, restaurants, etc. are closing tonight at 8 and will not reopen until further notice. We can not be on the streets between 8pm and 5 am. Batten down the hatches for sure now. I think I'll be watching a lot of Netflix and burning candles. Michele...glad you made it to Ohio safely after such a long drive. Will you and Amy be meeting up again? Lucky girls. On a happier note...it's a concoction I blended by Ten Digit Creations..."Fall Cookie". It's Apple Dumpling, Pear Spice and Marshmallow Sugar Cookie. Wonderful and relaxing "green" wax.
  24. Good Morning. Amy I am feeling ok but I won't really know for 1 1/2 more weeks. My last day of work was Friday. No fever so far and that seems to be the telltale sign. Thank you for your concern, my friend. Valerie...I felt like you two weeks ago. Media is making a mountain out of a molehill...they always do this...when snow is coming, everyone battens down the hatches like they'll be stuck in forever. However, this appears to be different. I don't know if this will only land in pockets here and there or if it will spread all over but we now have 12 confirmed cases in my local hospital and one death. The church that the woman who died went to has closed and all parishioners are supposed to be on quarantine. She was in her early 50s and not ill as far as anyone knows. Her brother is still in hospital with COVID-19 and he had it first. When people are dying around you it is real. It appears that the news/cdc are not posting illness and death as quickly as it happens. Yet, two hours north of me life is normal except for limited toilet paper. My own sister had no idea that anyone died here. Yes, our hospitals are over-run normally and they are not allowing anyone in except the patients. They are asking folks who have no fever to stay home but if you have a fever to call your doctor first and then go to the ER. They are NOT testing people without full blown symptoms since they do not have enough tests. Clearly, it is more contagious than the flu but all we can do is WASH constantly, keep at least 6 feet from each other and most importantly, STAY HOME! For some reason, people just want to go about with life as normal but they are risking everyone's lives. I feel bad for the elderly...the grocery stores are bare within hours of opening and they are high risk anyway. You'd never know looking out at the blue skies, that there is something out there that could kill you. If you don't have it near you, you are very lucky. Life changes when it hits your town. I am off to check on my father. I have a industrial mask so I am grateful for that....not CDC approved but better than the thin ones they are giving to people suspected of COVID-19 in the hospitals. Stay safe everyone.
  25. Michele! I hope you are all ok and feeling well. Well...I have been one of the people teasing everyone about all the craziness about the Covid-19...no toilet paper to be found...our supermarkets are bare and all I wanted was my weekly food. No more, no less. Unfortunately, it has hit here and quick. Our schools have all closed as of today...for at least two weeks and possibly a month. A few cases tested positive in my own town and it seems like it's spreading quick. I'm feeling a little off so I don't want to see my Dad at all but I don't want him going out either. He says he has enough food for a while..,I hope so. I expected that since the little kids are suspected to be the "carriers" that I would probably be at high risk so maybe so. At least I can melt my candles this week. Of course if I get a fever off to the doctor I will go. Amy...I'm glad you have found a way to get to your destination that is relaxing. And that hubby of yours....adorable. Still have the last melt in the warmers...time for a change. Ok...Cinnamon Apple by SGA.
