There are certain smells that take you fondly back to childhood. It might be a perfume, hot cinnamon rolls, or a particular brand of soap. Whatever it is, the time machine just propels you back.
Jergens Lotion, original scent. It smells like cherry almond, but even more, like my grandmother. I'm about 8 years old and she's handing me my special Churchy LaFemme cup filled with her amazing sweet iced tea and her hands smell like a grandmother's love.
Cherry Vanilla Cavendish Pipe tobacco and dry cleaning fluid ... They are my Grandfather. ♥
My grandfather smoked a cherry tobacco, too. I don't know an exact brand but any time I smell cherry pipe tobacco, Neutragena clear soap, Aramis cologne, or the smell of boats...it's him. It's really incredible, isn't it?
I love it when that time machine happens! For me it was honey suckle..........cause my grandparents had wild honey suckle growing all down the edge of their property line and they grew muscadine (sp?) grapes just beyond that.
I found a wine sometime back and when I tasted it for the first time..............it took me back all those years running around playing in their backyard....sneaking a grape or two off the vine, lol
Congratulations, Cadel Evans, winner of the Tour de France! First Australian ever to win The Tour!
Congratulations Mark Cavendish, winner of the green sprinter's jersey in The Tour! First British winner of the green jersey! (You are not my favorite person in the world, but credit where it's due - you are FAST!)
Congratulations, Sammy Sanchez, winner of the polka dot king of the mountains jersey!
It was a great race with moments that broke my heart and some that made it soar. Thank you. I can't wait until next year!
/primitive Aussie cheering
The first year I don't watch it... and an Aussie wins. Typical luck.
He was amazing. It was very emotional. If you get a chance, see if you can find video of him on the podium when the Australian National Anthem is sung. VERY emotional :)
Anybody want to hear good news? The Student Sponsorship figures are in! If you remember, last year we helped 136 kids.
This year, 210 kids are going to receive: 3 school uniforms, shoes, and school supplies!!
We received 14 Thousand dollars toward this goal!!!
We exceeded my imagination. Thank you to everyone who made this possible. We are scheduling the distribution this week and will have printed postcards for the kids to sign if they want to. (with parents' ok) and decorate. I love that our thank yous will have a child's signature and fingerprints. Donors will hold in their hands genuine gratitude from those they have helped. Kids will have an opportunity to express that gratitude.
I think they will convey the spirit of this project far better than a thank you letter signed by me. But lest you ever doubt...I am so thankful! This was our most successful fundraiser to date because it raised the most money and gave it away to a cause that meant so much to all of us.
I am celebrating you today!
Job well done to you and all who have gave. :)
Doing a great job with true job satisfaction.
Fantastic! Update the website so we can brag on you all over the internets!!1!
