Lavender, you make me so happy!

via Daily Prompt: Aromatic

I love the smell of lavender, it is one of my favorite scents. When I owned my house I grew lavender, well at least I tried. This past weekend I bought a bouquet of dried lavender to put into a vase. I’m trying to make my townhouse more homey since I am living alone again. For the past few months I’ve been running on empty, not food shopping, hardly entertaining, not decorating, pretty much just existing.

The lavender smells beautiful, so aromatic, well what’s left of it anyway. I dropped the dried stems on the floor and well, they are everywhere. I vacuumed it up and tried to salvage what I could. But the lavender seems to have multiplied. It was stuck to my feet all day yesterday, and has somehow migrated to my sofa and stairs. I even found some in my hair.

Maybe it’s the universe telling me to stop and relax and smell the lavender. Stop running on empty and just sit back and enjoy life for a while.

Now if only money would multiply when I drop it!

Happy Monday everyone. Remember to stop and smell the lavender, or roses, or whatever aroma makes you happy.

About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. Navigating the dating waters in my forties isn't easy but hey what in life is? My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.

  3. I have some lavender spray. I never use it. I have to get it in my mind that I can do whatever the fuck I want to now. I don’t have Loser complaining about the smell….(the only smells he loved were cigarette smoke, beer and tramp odor.)
