That's not what I'm writing about tonight. I am writing about ....smells.
Hopefully good smells. But what's good to one nose may not be good to another..
Take room fresheners. I don't like the phony-rose smelling ones. Or the pine tree ones. Although I love the smell of roses. And pine trees.
But they have managed to "bottle" the smell of fresh laundry. And...it smells like...fresh laundry.
I wish they made it a lotion or cologne. I'd wear it all the time.
Mr. B is not a fan. I can't imagine why. But then, he likes the smell of beer...and I, not so much.
I have a candle that I never light. Don't want to have it be "all-gone".
So, I take it in my hand and sniff it..love the smell. It's hard to explain, but it reminds me of the Catholic Church when I was a child. Somehow, it comforts me.
Skunks. One of the yucky smells you say? Oh yes. Most definitely. But every time I smell a skunk, it reminds me of a very wonderful time in our lives, living in a double-wide about 100 yards off of a beautiful river in Colorado. We had skunks under the trailer. Yep. Nice, huh.
But to this day, I get the whiff of a skunk and it make me smile.
So, what smells remind you of a good time, of fresh laundry, or of security and hope? Let me know. I'd like to take a sniff.
-me ........ Psssst..I lost another 2.8 lbs making the total so far.....9.8 !!!! (wish is was 98...but I'll get there..insert a big 'ol smile here :-)
