We purchased our Fall and Winter "go to scent"...Ambre and then it was time to branch out and try something new...
I opted for Roses, because of course, Roses are my all time favourite flower.
Mr. HB got into the swing of things and sniffed all the testers...he liked Menthe Verte.
A fresh light fragrance...greenish, like the Mint itself.
While the house smells all fresh and minty inside we have been adding greenery to the porch.
I had to stop on my walk and take a photo of the moss on a granite wall near The Victoria Art Gallery.
There have been wind storms this past week and there are more in the forecast.
It has been difficult getting my walks in
as the winds are ripping limbs from the trees
small twigs are flying everywhere...
I do not want to be a target or suffer a head injury.
So I have been doing what Mother does when inclement weather strikes...
I have been walking in the Mall!
Not that I am a "mall walker" per say.
(many seniors walk in the mall before it opens then they sit and chat over coffee in the food court)
I have been getting some Christmas shopping done and while I am roaming in the shops I make sure that I cover lots of territory!
interesting interior for an elevator
a sheet metal fantasy
Wind blown hair...
I made an appointment with my hairdresser this week
after months of the tedious "growing out period."
It has not grown as long as I want it to yet
but with the festive season upon us
I can wait no longer.
If I do I might earn the nickname "Scruffy."
These cute little felted animals have my full attention...
they are adorable and so charming.
Crafters that can create such lovely things have my utmost respect.
I have tried to make these and mine looked rather odd.
that I disposed of them before showing them to anyone.
Sometimes we need to let go of the things that we cannot do and let those who can, lead the way!
"Letting go helps us to to live in a more peaceful state of mind and helps restore our balance.
It allows others to be responsible for themselves and for us to take our hands off situations
that do not belong to us.
This frees us from unnecessary stress.

That is my deep thought for the day....
I'm currently busy
rather pre-occupied with cooking and shopping.
I am volunteering at a Christmas luncheon for about 100 people.
It will be all hands on deck trying to get the full turkey dinner
and all the trimmings out from the teeny tiny kitchen
to all the hungry diners.
I plan to wear my linen apron and comfy shoes...
hope I don't drop any plates
or pour coffee on anyone's lap or slip on the gravy.
