Sniffing My Wrists  

Monday, January 26, 2009


I have been in a bit of a funk lately. I tend to get seasonal depression, and I think that might be playing a role in it. I am also feeling a little burnt out, and blah.

I tend to not know what to blog about - always thinking I need some big, wonderful thing to blog about, even though I've got that cute little "Blog Guilt Free" icon over there on the right. The point of that little button, if I remember correctly, is to remind me to blog for me, about what interests me.

So today I bring you a little post about Cotton Candy Body Spray .

Last Thursday, I kept thinking I smelled cotton candy in my classroom. I kept smelling it all day, and I couldn't figure out why. Finally, when one of the nurses walked by, I realized it must be her, and it was! She had a cotton candy fragrance on, and gave me a squirt of it. Oddly enough, I spent the rest of the day sniffing my wrists and feeling happy. (Boy, it doesn't take much to make me happy, does it?)

Anyway, on Friday I asked her what kind it was again, because I thought I might like to buy some, and she gave hers to me! I was so excited. I am not normally a "scent" person, but I kept spritzing myself this weekend and feeling happy.

While looking for an image of the Cotton Candy Body Fantasy stuff, I noticed that they have other products with the same scent. I might have to go to the drugstore and indulge. Wow, I'm getting wild in my old age.

Even though it might be a little silly, I want to try and remember my 2009 theme of GOOD and think of the good little things in life that make me happy. I'm hoping to be more mindful of these little things.

What little thing is making you happy today?

    Michie, I haven't read these posts yet, but I wanted to reply to your comment. We are in Okemos, MI...we'd love to have you join our Crafty Critters! Would you have to fly in? Because I'm SURE it would be worth the price of a plane ticket. :) I mean, I do supply tissue paper and crayons, after all.

    Okay, now that I've read the post...the little thing that's making me happy today is my terrarium. It's a fishtank on my desk, and when I went on maternity leave all of my plants died. Bad mommy. But yesterday I asked our botanist if I could have some cuttings, and I think it looks pretty cool! And I laugh whenever anybody asks me, "Is there anything in there?" and I say, "Yes, plants!"

    I would have to fly in - but it still sounds like fun. Your terrarium sounds nice. Have you ever put any pictures of it on your blog?
