Oh, the comments automatically closed on this month’s perfume Fairy Godmother post, so I re-opened them because I hadn’t granted any wishes yet! So make sure you check there to see if someone has responded to you, as well as check and see if you can help out any of the people who posted later, right before the comments auto-closed. A new Perfume Fairy Godmother will go up next weekend, so look for that. I just want to say that I can’t remember who suggested this idea, but I would just hug you so tight right now. That monthly post has been so beautiful to watch – perfume people helping other people get a a small thing that is a big thing for them, sharing their treasures. That’s what the perfume community does so well, pass along the generosity that they were shown when they were new to perfume. You guys really are so wonderful! I already knew that, but I love watching that unfold, and it helps me always remember when I was new and wanted to try so many things, and my budget was shot or I couldn’t find something. Thank you all for playing with us here and being the kind, generous souls you are.
So what are you guys doing this Sunday? I’m playing with skin stuff. I’ve got these products I’m testing that are supposed to return my hands to some semblance of youthfulness, fading the brown spots and plumping up the skin so it’s not so crepey – my hands used to be so pretty, age and not protecting them in the sun have not been kind. I want to give it another week before I post my results, and I did remember to take before pictures so I can show you how successful it was. So far, I’m impressed with the progress, but I want the other week, maybe two, to see if it can get me where I want it The company that makes the product surprised me. Not because they’re not good, but — well, you’ll see when I do the reveal. I’ve got other products I’m testing as well from them – for my face, to heal the cracked callouses on my feet, which are horrible, despite the fact I get a pedicure every two weeks – and I’m fast becoming a fan.
Plus! I’m hoping I’ll have one big knitting project done that I can show you. I think it looks a little weird because I got some of my proportions wrong on length, but it was a fun knit, and it’s so colorful. I’ve got my next project or two picked out. One from a difficult pattern that I’m going to go get mentoring on before I start, and the other I’m going to design myself from a sweater I saw in a catalogue. Oh, don’t fret! It’s an easy design, and I think I’ve got it figured out how to do it, but who knows what I’ll wind up with.
I finished my oral surgery that included some tooth implants, etc. It was one of those things I’d been putting off forever hoping it would go away, but it wouldn’t. It’s not the pain and trauma of doing it, it’s the cash. Major dental work is so expensive. I’m thinking of having the rest of it done in Costa Rica. Anyone done that? I know there are pros and cons to it, but they do have some great dentists if you can make sure you get one of the excellent ones in CR, and the cost is like 20-30% of the price here, and I’ve got a lot more work I need to do and absolutely no budget that will allow me to do it without going into debt, which I just don’t want to do. Thoughts? I trust you guys, you have such a variety of life experience and knowledge.
So fill me in on what you’ve been up to? New hobbies? New project? New job? New business? Babies? Boyfriends? Girlfriends?
