I promised myself I wouldn’t whine on this blog and I certainly don’t intend to start. But it’s a fact that sometimes my husband’s moods are more than I can handle.
Sometimes it’s a roller coaster, man.
So imagine my surprise tonight, when after a slew of rough days, I dined by moonlight and candlelight with my husband while we listened to Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass on that website he found. He’d made roasted chicken, baked yams, and carrots and peas. And oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
I can’t believe how happy this simple meal made me feel. It almost made up for all the bullshit I put up with this week.
Apologies for cursing. It’s not something you’ll normally see here. But it was the best word I could think of for what I’m trying to convey.
But it’s so darn worth it, isn’t it?
And now for the candles. Oh yes, there’s more candles.
And they’re on sale, just in time for you-know-what.
I first saw Jimmy Belasco candles last year on the Pioneer Woman’s website and I ordered a couple of them just to check them out. And I fell in love. The soy candles have the most wonderful scents and they last a long time. The company’s goal is “to make the most fragrant candles on the planet, using the finest ingredients on the planet.” I also love that $5 of each purchase goes to a charity of your choice.
I got an e-mail from the company today, offering some of their best sellers on sale. And it’s quite the sale, too. Nine different scents are reduced plus there’s free shipping when you purchase three or more candles. But it won’t last long.
On sale are
- SEXE (the #1 selling year round fragrance)
- Absinthe (the #2 selling year round fragrance)
- Thai Ginger Citrus (the #3 selling year round fragrance)
- Merry Merry Cranberry (the #1 selling Holiday fragrance)
- LOVE (only $18 to introduce the new formula)
- Orange Cranberry (holiday fragrance w/o cinnamon)
- Roman Bath (the perfect spa fragrance)
- Pom Passion (pomegranate passionfruit)
- Oriental Musk (one of Jimmy's favorites)
Please note that I get no compensation from Jimmy Belasco. I just know a good candle when I see one and I like sharing a good deal with my friends.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
