Today is the Best Day Ever.
Dad and I visit Mom's grave (today is the five month anniversary of her death), we go to lunch and then ride the 3-wheeler and play with the John Deere tractors.
I had so much fun.
We have already made plans that, next time I visit, I will ride the 4-wheeler - while Dad rides the the 3-wheeler - to the shooting range in the lower field. Dad will then instruct me on the Beretta.
That's right, Josephine Has A Gun.
Scent of the Day is Estee Lauder's Azuree. Readers of this blog know that Azuree was my Mother's Signature Scent years ago. If ever a perfume captured the best of life on the farm, and Mom's feisty spirit, it's Azuree.
Even though it starts out all Lysol, Azuree gradually mellows to a beautiful, worn leather with an herbal, earthy drydown.
Grain in burlap sacks.
Barley and wood.
Feeling sweaty and sticky, after a 91 degree day on the farm, I come home and spray Tea Rose, hoping to feel refreshed until I shower before bed. The combination of Azuree and Tea Rose is amazing.
Dewy freshness paired with old leather, woods and vetiver.
It's a good day - Mom would be happy.
