April 23rd - Scent

Sunday, April 23, 2017

"For the sense of smell, 
almost more than any other,
has the power to recall memories
and it's a pity that we use it so little."

Every person, every home, and every place has a particular scent.

"Smells spur memories, but they also rouse our dozy senses,
pamper and indulge us, define our self-image,
stir the cauldron of our seductiveness, warn us of danger,
lead us into temptation, fan our religious fervor,
accompany us to heaven, wed us to fashion, [and] steep us in luxury."

The loss of your sense of smell is called anosmia

"Today, let us delight in the simple pleasure of our sense of smell. 

Indulge yourself with comfort aromas...

Today, when you inhale something wonderful, 
offer a prayer of thanksgiving for this marvelous gift."

Some of my favorite scents...
It smells a little like maple syrup to me, and reminds me of my dad 
when he comes him covered in stickers after working on the ranch.

Grandma's perfume. 
I don't know what it is, but I smell it and think of her.

My mom's perfume.
I really should learn the names of these perfumes shouldn't I.

Some of my perfumes. 
Pink Grapefruit, Forever Elizabeth.

My sister's perfume, Fantasy.

The smell of just about any flower, or any good food.

Pledge and Swiffer. 

Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo.

Dove soap and head and shoulders...that's what Robbie smells like.

A good dog smell, not a bad dog smell.

There are too many...I'm just gonna stop right there. 

How about you? 
What are some of your favorite scents?

Gratitude Journal

1) Church today was pretty freaking awesome. I can't wait to read the speech that was talked about, A Banquet of Consequences.

2) I was in a foul mood, the kids were in a foul mood...Robbie was not. He kept us up all day.

3) I finally got a refill on one of my prescriptions. Switching insurance and finding a new doctor really sucks, but I'd rather have insurance and finally found a doctor and just barely gotten my prescription and gone through all that hassle than to not have any of it at all........

4) It's 8:20 and I have a whole evening ahead of me.

5) Home.
