Please tell me my sniffer will work again. In the back of my mind I am terrified that I am going to be like the lady I met at the doctor's office several months ago. She told me that she went to Europe on vacation and picked up some kind of flu that has left her unable to smell and taste in the 2 years since. How horrifying is that. So the moral of the story is, don't take your sniffer for granted because life really is dull and boring without it.

How to have your hair and clothes and pretty much everything in your house smell like a campfire without going camping!!
It's weird to think that every temporal thing we have can be destroyed in the blink of an eye. What would it be like to loose everything in an instant? As we hurried and left our home we didn't take much but I had what was most important, my baby and my husband.
We later returned to find all was well but it will take some time for our house to rid itself of the smell of a smokey casino in Las Vegas.
Now our city's claim to fame can be to have a fire named after it. Want to move here?

As I wrote in my first post, we recently returned from another trip to Brasil. On this trip we were visiting with a friend who decided to show me her collection of homemade purses. Now these aren't any purses mind you. These happen to be purses made from recycled materials that are crocheted together such as plastic bottles and soda can tabs. And wouldn't you know it, she gave me one of these gems. I now have my own soda can tab purse. Please note that I was instructed to use this purse at high class affairs such as weddings and parties because it has fake pearls sewn on it. I don't know, soda tabs and high class parties- do they mix???? Please see exhibit B.
I can't wait to see what kind of purse I get next time we go to Brasil. And for all of you who have ever given me a purse, thanks.

This is what beautiful Florianopolis looks like when it is not raining.
