Hello dear friends, and happy Monday! It’s listicle time once again, and this week Stasha’s assignment was prompted by Kerry at New2Two: !0 Fantastic Smells. Smells of all sorts are pretty much the theme for me this week, as we’re mapping out the air circulation system in the new house and all we’ve been talking about is which areas of the house smell dirty (i.e. bathrooms, closets, laundry room, kitchen) so we need to pump air out and which smell clean (bedrooms, living room etc) so we need to pump air in… I know… mind numbingly boring, and frankly, more complicated than one would expect!
I have the feeling the renovation is going to be taking over this blog for awhile… thanks to those who commented on last week’s post on the guest bathroom, you’ve really helped me narrow down the choices! If you’re interested in being my virtual (unpaid) interior designer, on Thursday I’m going to put up another reno post asking for opinions. (Just thought I’d mention that).
Anyway, now let’s concentrate on the listicle, 10 fantastic smells, in no particular order:
1. spring showers
2. grilled meat
3. freshly brewed coffee first thing in the morning
4. The Boy
5. The Girl
6. carrot cake in the oven
7. my lavender plant in the sun
8. the Husband
9. sun dried laundry
I am a big fan of spring showers too…
Meat grilling on the BBQ. I’m drooling just thinking about it.
Mmmm to all your smells. I better go eat lunch before I read ONE MORE Monday Listicle.
I’ve now informed the hubby: steak for dinner! fire up the grill baby. can’t believe I forgot that one. carrot cake is definitely a good one too. Thanks…my supper is all planned now. 🙂
The first cup or pot of coffee in the morning is always the best scent. Oh yes, grilled meat is a tasty scent to hit the air during the summertime. I’m curious to see what carrot cake baking smells like .
It’s very sweet that you love the scent of all your family members. I assume that’s after they’ve showered!
Tomatoes smell and taste THE best when they are fresh from the garden.
I love carrot cake smell, and pumpkin bread too. And I love the smell of fresh tomatoes. Even the green leafs of the plant. That smells like summer to me.
