It Was a Smelly Smell

An old man at the laundry mat smelled strongly of liquor and cigarettes. I suppose that isn't terribly unusual, except it was 8:30 in the morning! Hello!!

We've removed Washerella's body and recycled it. The hoses from the wall have been leaning into the utility sink, still in mourning. They seem so...droopy. Last night, Girl needed to hand wash several items and asked what she should do with the hoses. I told her to let them hang to the floor, it won't hurt anything.

Wrong! Last night the entire room reeked of...something. The cat box? Nothing that toxic has ever emitted a scent like that from the litter box! The room now smells of bleach.

As you walk past the front flowerbed a wisp of fragrance will surround you. It is delightful and I stood in one spot for several moments last night, inhaling deeply and treasuring this small gift.

The aroma of growing tomatoes is beginning to waft through the air while the butterfly bush lures those dainty winged creatures with a subtle hint of sweetness.

Interesting how some scents wrap us in their warmth and beauty while others repulse us.

What did YOU smell today?

I actually smelled vanilla and green apple scented candles all day!
