Just Call Me Smelly

All day yesterday. Laundry - it was great! I accomplished something, and when it was time to start-a-snoozin', I tucked in under the drier sheet scent and all the purple. I don't actually know if the color has anything to do with how it smells, but it sure seems to. Anyway, I love laying my head on a pillow that has a fresh scent of clean laundry just out of the drier. It's just the best. Can't beat that. I've always loved to smell, though. What a weird word - smell. Dig that one apart, t!

I love the smell of:
1) Clean Laundry
2) Rain
3) Babies
4) Lilacs!
5) Sharpened Pencils
6) Harry's Aftershave
7) Bread Baking
8) ANYTHING Baking
9) My Nestle Plant just a few blocks away....sweet chocolate
10) Scotch Tape
11) Subway! Eat Fresh.
12) Candles....oh, boy oh, boy I Love Candles!!!

Let's talk a little about candles, shall we? First of all, they rock. Now, I have plenty of candles (votives, that is) that drip and run all over when you burn them. Not today! I've been in love with the Better Homes and Garden Party candles. Apple assortments of all kinds...mmmm. They burn down like a dream - hours of great smellings! And they come in their own jar for $5.50. Now come on - I don't think you know what I mean when I say "hours". They burn forever! And the scent doesn't disappear after that little wick no longer burns with the passion that only a Better Homes and Garden Party candle understands - oh, no. That sweet aroma fills the room and sits like two old friends in a coffee shop. Forever! Mua hahahaha :) My point is, they're really good! I must be going now. I'll finish that list sometime soon! I love to smell!
