There are smells that remind of us Christmas. Smells that remind us of Fall. Smells that remind us of summer, and smells that remind us of spring. I love the smells of Fall and Christmas. I do love the smell of the beach in summer. The smell of honeysuckle, flowers, and all of the smells of canning going on in the kitchen. But come fall, my smell "buds" come alive. I love to smell wood smoke. Love the smell of apple butter simmering in the oven, Pumpkins squares baking, apple cider on the stove. Or better yet in my cup. The smell of fresh peach pie, makes me miss my Mother so much. Her pie crusts were so good and sometimes I wish I could just have one more piece. Is there someone/something you feel that way about? A lot of smells are food oriented. Some are not. I smell a certain after shave and think of my Daddy. Smell pipe smoke, specially applewood, and the same thing. Another smell that takes me way back is SenSen, breath mints. Anyone remember those? My Grandmother always had them in her purse and gave me one or two every Sunday. She took ex-lax and would kiss me good night and I can still smell the smell sometimes.lol Ah, smells. They are the gift that keeps on giving. I love the smell of soup simmering on the stove, of a pot roast in the crock pot. These are a few of the smells that I remember. If I go past a race track and smell the cars as they are speeding round the track, they bring back memories of all the hours I have spent at the races. All of these are happy memories for me. They remind me of people and things that were so precious and I am grateful for these memories.
I will leave you with a few more of my favorite things.
The candle snuffer I hung on it is, late 1700's.
