Good Morning All and Happy Hump Day.

Susan...glad you are able to enjoy your family during this difficult time. We will get through this eventually.

Sharon....oh...THE DUST...it's everywhere! Ugh....I know....I've vacuumed and dusted and I'm still finding evergreen needles too. At least my house gets a good cleaning after Christmas. Lol

 Michele...what a cute name for a tart....isn't that a children's book?

Amy...hope you are well and enjoying your well deserved time off!!

Ive finally changed the warmers...Empire Alchemy Phoenix Down (guaiac wood, cinnamon sticks, amber, hay, red delicious apple, dry grass) something about this struck me as holiday scent...don't know why. I just looked up Guaiac wood and it's from the Palo Santo tree aka "the tree of life"....I didn't know that. 🧐

Have a good day.

Good Morning!

We were just commenting about still vacuuming the pine needles that are everywhere. 

Melting this morning ST Peeta. This is French Baguette, Butterbrickle and Coconut Shavings. This is a bit old so we will see how it goes.  

Maggie-You are right!  I knew that name sounded familiar. I think it is a children’s book. BTW that melt was outstanding!! 

Amy-Glad to hear you are enjoying your retirement and that your new floors are almost ready to be installed. 

 Enjoy your day everyone!

Good morning all!

Well I have been a bit remiss on here and I hope you will forgive me!

Such a week, but we are pressing through... I was thoroughly rattled by all of the events in Washington and my heart was breaking for the country, but hopefully we will find our footing again.  

In addition, my beloved beagle Moses hurt himself the other night and couldn't get his hind quarters up, which had me in despair and required an emergency visit from the vet, but now he is on two meds and doing much better now, still wobbly.  The one medicine is supposed to cause feelings of relaxation and euphoria.  I may need one of those myself.

On a happy note, next week our hardwood flooring will be installed, and it is supposed to take 7 to 10 days.  The flooring people have brought the wood over, and it is relaxing in the living room getting used to our temperature and humidity. This is a bit of a retirement treat which we planned and saved for, so happiness abounds. 🎉

Susan, I'm glad you are ok, and yikes, I'm sorry the covid numbers are up where you are.  That has to be scary when you are a caretaker.  I know you are careful and I'm saying prayers that you will stay healthy throughout all of this.  

Mag, I hope the new job is going okay and that the children know how lucky they are to have you.  Yes, putting the Christmas decorations away is always a bittersweet activity.

Michele, You must be so excited with the twins coming home soon!  I think your household will be very lively and full of joy.

Sharon, your pictures on Instagram have been so beautiful from your daily walks... You truly are lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world!

All of your melts sound amazing - L3, VCS, Burning Mitten, OPT... I've been looking at all the wax stored around here and shaking my head... Focusing on one vendor per week at the moment in an effort to appreciate that vendor's different blends, and to see a dent.  It will take a long time to make any sort of dent in all of this wax!

This week is Empire Alchemy, which had been curing for 2 months, and I continue to be stunned by the beauty of her blends... It's an interesting wax, because it seems to take about an hour to start blooming in the house, and then all the different notes are apparent... She combines things differently than many of the other vendors and I am really loving her wax. 

So today it's:

EA Dalgona Coffee - gorgeous gourmand espresso blend with heavy cream, a touch of cinnamon, and vanilla crumb donut-

And

EA Storybook Cottage - hazelnut coffee, pecans, raspberry, a hint of maple and pancake - beautiful with the coffee and raspberry mixing so well together.

So far I am quite happy with retirement - playing my guitar more - I have heard retired friends say they don't know how they ever had time for their jobs, lol, and I can appreciate that now - So far I have no trouble filling the day and I have never had a problem with being by myself.   Of course the whole thing is very new, so we shall see how things go in a few months.

Hugs to all and please stay safe out there.

Hi all!

Amy-It was so nice to see you posting. We have missed you here.  I love Empire Alchemy!  I did sneak 2 orders in and am awaiting them anxiously.  Trying to make this a very low buy year. It’s so hard to resist sometimes.  I like your idea of one vendor a week.  It’s probably the best way to make a dent. Glad to hear your floor is getting installed next week.  I know you have been patiently waiting.  I am extremely excited for the babies to come home.  They are doing very well.

Maggie- I used to dislike laundry scents. Now I’m really enjoying them. It’s so funny how our nose changes. 

Sharon- It’s beautiful where you live.  You are very fortunate. 

Susan-Stay safe.  

I am melting today SM Circus Animal Stuffed Sugar Cookie and L3 Cream Filled.  It’s Cream and Strawberry Cupcakes @Tiffanies.  These are beautiful.  They are blending nicely with each other.

TGIF!  Enjoy the rest of your day!

Good Morning and Happy Hump Day.

Last night it was Distilled Moonlight by Empire Alchemy - blackberries, aspen caramel woods, sage leaf. 💕
I'm needing a haircut once again...this short hairdo is growing like a weed. Trying to grow it out but it's looking like a mop....maybe I'll give it a trim and see what happens. [smilie=th_thfoenen]This should be fun.

Have a good day all.
