I never thought of myself as a country person. I love the city, I would never, ever move away from Vienna, and that is why it took me by surprise how much I enjoy our Little House on the Prairie.
We all can’t wait until it is time to go to the cottage again, if possible we go Friday evening, if not, Saturday morning at the latest. It is incredibly satisfying to make a fire, to eat simple meals, to go for a walk in the surrounding meadows and woods. My younger son is turning out to be a top-notch hiker, he puts us all to shame with is stamina and energy. And he adores the cows. My older son found a friend his age at the neighboring farm and is learning a lot, watching and helping at the farm as well as a new dialect.
We are a happy bunch of country bumpkins now! 🙂
Undina of Undina’s Looking Glass experienced a fit of jealousy over Ben Affleck, sorry, no, a perfume. I get confused when he is involved. 🙂 Just hop on over and see for yourself.
Olenska of parfümieren wrote such an appetizing review of Jeux de Peau, I had to get my bottle out of the depths of my closet and have been wearing it a lot this week, ideal in this cold and wet weather. (Here is my take.)
Denyse of Grain de Musc wrote such a beautiful and poetic piece about Cartier Baiser Volé, although I fear I love her review a lot more than the fragrance.
Suzanne’s Perfume Journal reviewed a DSH perfume – Bancha Extreme, Suzanne finds the most incredible analogies, perfect.
The Candy Perfume Boy is starting a new series of posts about different perfumery notes, his first is his great love – tuberose.
It is not from last week, but this post by Charleston Girl of Best Things in Beauty is haunting me, therefore I thought I’d share it so you’d all be haunted too. This perfume is out of the question (financially), but she sure makes it sound good…
How about your Sunday plans? And are you more of a city dweller or a country lover?
