a day

                                                                                                                                                      lemon basil
lots of cleaning and time in the garden 
nothing extravagant but doing ordinary things
feel so much better this evening and relaxed
the air feel much cooler in the evening
as i left the door open, i can hear homoeogryllus japonicus singing 
in the night light, soothing sound, this is one of 
favorite moment
did you hear any naturing sound today?

recently ordered herb and aromatic products
arrived this afternoon.  smells so lovely.  
lavender shampoo, eucalyptus handsoap, 
rosemary soap, etc.....i have forgotten spoiling
myself like this for a long time and what a great 
feeling again

contemplating whether to have herb tea or 
coffee now after supper.....
maybe, will have both!  
good night to all and good morning to those
who are on the other side of me.
sure, wonderful day is there for you

    i think there is so much relaxation, refreshment and upliftment to be found through scents.. what are your favourite scents coco?
    some of mine is
    orange blossom, rose, jasmine and lavender : ) and eucalyptus always helps me if i have a cold or headache...
    i will buy some new scented candles soon, a must have on dark autumn evenings.


  8. my favorite...oh, i have so many.
    lavender i am in love at the moment definitely.
    orange blossom is one of mine too,lemon grass, thyme, eucalyptus, mint,
    sweet rose smell too...
    now, i am totally coated with lavender fragrance and it really makes
    me feel rich. nice to be surrounded with wonderful smell.
    oh, the scented candle is great especially for rainy days. it cheers you
    up and put you in a dreamy mood. the mixture of lavender&mint candle from
    friend long time ago became my current favorite. enjoy candle hunting v.
