yep, it's july

Over the past month I have not been inspired to blog about anything. At times I thought that I was "feelin' it" and sat down to the computer; but then ... nuthin'. I've tried not to read too much into it, beyond the fact that I just haven't had much to say. Now that I think about it, the sage words of one of my favorite professors/colleagues here at the university come to mind: "Sometimes Americans talk too much. We don't know when to just sit back and listen." Maybe that's what I've been doing ... listening?

HA! Whatever. I can try to paint myself as some introspectively hindered soul ... but the bottomline is much less esoteric: I've been hot, tired, and burnt out.
Until today!

There's nothing like a good ol' Yankee Candle email to pull me out of the summer doldrums! Today's Yankee Candle offering brought me dangerously close to fall--if for only a brief moment.

A few new fragrances for this fall ....

A perfect autumn day captured in radiant, aromatic strokes of brisk air, spicy wood
s and warm musk.

Buttercream gets a spicy twist . . . a traditional recipe of pumpkin, vanilla, cinn
amon, and clove.

A cool and calm stroll by the river . . . watery green notes with hints of sage, amber and oak.
