Happy Birthday to Liz!
Liz is 40! And the mother of Nicholas, and a graphic designer, and a really wonderful knitter, and a sweet, thoughtful human, and the paramour of Peter (!) who actually seems to deserve her, and she has long legs and blonde hair and good taste and is a skilled photographer and makes excellent tomato-red pepper soup and spinach salad and has taken care of me when I've been broken hearted and is one of the dearest women I have ever known. Happy Birthday, sweety! The yarn is in the mail!
Today's fragrance: Etro Shaal Nur is a puzzle, most predominantly spice, incense and rose to me -- the contradiction is the other claimed notes of karo karoundé (floral, herbal, and spicy), narcissus, jonquil and citrus: I don't get 'em. But what I do get is so deep and mysterious. Dark and beautiful. One of my favorite fall fragrances.
