Gray and Gloomy - Day 2

But I got a treasure in the mail!  One of my belated birthday gifts to myself....at my age I just celebrate all year long!  This is my favorite fragrance in the whole world.  I am not big on perfumes but this just smells clean.  Better than soap and water clean but just clean and fresh.  It's not citrus either....you'd have to smell it but trust me it is wonderful!  It's close to ozone or how I imagine angels smell.   I haven't had any for several years so it was about time.  This will probably last me a year.  I got the body spritz, the body butter, and the shampoo/body wash.  Each item has a saying about grace......... here's the one on the body spritz..........the fragrance is Amazing Grace which is also one of my favorite hymns and the word and meaning of grace hold a special place in my soul.

"philosophy: how you climb up the mountain is just as important as how you get down the mountain.  and so it is with life, which for many of us becomes one big gigantic test followed by one big gigantic lesson.  in the end, it all comes down to one word, grace.  it's how you accept winning and losing, good luck and bad luck, the darkness, and the light."
 I'll share the rest with you some other day.

Here is proof that spring is on the way...............I think they are tulips, hyacinth and the last one I know are daffodils.  There was a gal out in Oregon that said her daffodils are blooming!  Wow!
 I spent the morning on valentines and then took my walk, crocheted another heart. cleaned litter boxes and the kitchen and here I am!
Here are your "tidbits" for today.........
This looks intriguing....I wonder if it would stick?  Here's the recipe
Let me know if you try it!
This looks like fun and it involves either a paper hole punch or a craft drill.  What?  I've never heard of a craft drill but evidently, Fiskars makes one!  Who knew?  Here's the link to the tutorial

and a little something to make you smile..........
Happy Trails!!!


  1. Do you know they say people who have a lot of interests in life live to be significantly older than others who don't? I think you'll make 125 easily! ;o)

    1. Well, if I do I just hope you're there to celebrate it with me!

  2. I'm so happy for you, Sam, that you got yourself something for your birthday that you enjoy so much. I'm not a perfume wearer (normally), but boy do you make me want to check this out. I like light ethereal scents. And this definitely sound like THAT.

    1. I'm not a perfume wearer either but this scent is so light it just makes me happy. They say a lot of people in healthcare will wear it where they won't ordinarily wear any scent whatsoever. You could probably go to one of those department store counters and get a sample. If not I could spray some on a card and send it to you.

    2. That's really sweet, Sam. I looked it up and see that Ulta carries it and we have one here in our small town. I've never been there before, but I think I'm now motivated to check it out, for the sole purpose of seeing if they have a sample of this. :)

  3. Such a nice birthday gift. I have to find a new cologne/perfume since the manufacturer has discontinued my favorite. It's such a personal things as a fragrance can smell so good on one person and terrible on another. Body chemistry I guess??? We had a gorgeous day today and thank goodness we did because Dennis had to leave work early and climb on to the roof to replace a few shingles. Scary as as have a tall house.
    It sounds like you sure got a lot done. You amaze me at your productivity.

    1. Dennis amazes me crawling up on your roof! I am scared of heights....like REALLY scared. I'm not afraid of many things but that one is #1!
