What Does The Sweet Smell of Success Smell Like?

WillaKissing · 56-60
Success smells like a task completed, a job well done, and the smell of new clothes, heels, or a new car.

@cherokeepatti My sweet lady! I know exactly what you mean. Post-divorce and right down to not from Walmart, that type of self-treating celebration is wonderful.

@WillaKissing the first weekend I had to myself after the divorce it came a cold front (in September). My ex came to pick up our daughter for the weekend. I drove over to the library, got an armload of books. I didn’t want to use the heat yet trying to save money…so I cooked something to warm me up and made hot drinks and laid around bundled up in the blankets reading books for most of the weekend. That was my first post-divorce treat and it was wonderful. I rarely got to rest and had the entire weekend to lounge around…no yard to mow and no one to wait on either. I did what I wanted on my own time.

@cherokeepatti That was a Beautiful weekend for you then! I loved how you made it fit your own desires.

I have been divorced since May 4th, 2007, but went empty nest in May 2018, so outside of my pooches there is no one under foot now and I have grown quite loving of this arrangement.

[b]purple roses..., the only roses that have a perfume scent...,[/b] almost like the scent of jasmine.

Expensive but worth it, if your florists have it...,

@eyeno Angel Face roses are really nice, they have a lavender tint and smell really sweet.

Contentment... Peace...

@Mellowgirl onion burgers on the grill and roasted marshmallow and smell of the neighbor’s lawn being mowed. That sounds like contentment

cooked onions, oddly enough

@Pretzel grilled with steak maybe?
WillaKissing · 56-60
@cherokeepatti And Mushrooms and green peppers with garlic.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@WillaKissing yes mushrooms, I love them with steak. Anyway I’d hate to have to do without buying onions to cook with, most of my main dishes have onion in some form in them, either raw or cooked, green onions, white or red onions, etc.

I reckon it feels satisfying when accomplish something from scratch and seeing the results to succeed it feels like fresh air I reckon but I don’t know I wish I was successful
