Relaxing With a Cigar, Garden Clean-Up and Checkbook Balancing, One Heaping Tablespoon of Nat King Cole

1. The cigar box that holds my sewing has the sweet, woody aroma of tobacco. This soothing scent evokes thoughts of tweed, earth, woods and good sherry. I love the smell of unburnt tobacco.
2. I've procrastinated two chores as long as I dare. Today was the day that I talked myself into getting them done. Now that I've done them, I don't know why I didn't do them sooner! They weren't that bad and I pat myself on the back for the rest of the day.
3. I listened to a Nat King Cole album while I baked a "thank you" cheesecake for a friend. The music was mellow, lyrical and timeless. I wondered, might the music make the baking turn out even better, sort of like singing to one's plants?


  1. Isn't it funny how we procrastinate but have such a good feeling when we get done with whatever. It's always simply the starting for me and then one day it seems like the impetus comes out of thin air.

  2. Everything goes easier when listening to the mellow voice of Nat King Cole. And chores are always better when done.

  3. I think you have something there. I made a vegetarian dish for niece Rebecca once that was so good, we polished the whole thing off. Then I made it for myself later and it wasn't nearly as good. I think I was putting so much love into the first time...
