Yesterday, we went to our usual Christmas Tree place and picked out our tree. It is quite lovely. The branches have settled a bit and tonight we will decorate it. The den smells of pine, my favorite scent. I have a pine scented candle, pine scented soap and I used to use pine scented bubble bath. I say used to because I can no longer find it. When I was living in Philadelphia and going to grad school, I would buy this wonderful Austrian pine bubble bath from Wanamakers. I used it all the time. When I moved to Boston to teach, I found it at Caswell Massey, if I remember correctly. That particular brand of pine bath eventually was impossible to find, and I used another brand. Now I can’t find any pine bubble bath. If you have a lead on one, I’d love to know about it.
Today I started decorating a bit around the house. I love the holidays, don’t you?
