Country Apple

country apple.jpgI’m snowed in (temporarily) following two days of snow and thought it a good day to clean out the hall closet.

It’s cathartic to throw away things I haven’t used and see no reason to keep to use in the future. It’s embarrassing to admit there were medications that expired in 2015.

Among the things I found was this bottle of Bath and Body Works Country Apply Body Splash.  I uncapped it, hoping to catch the sweet scent of apples and spices.

Like the old meds, the spray has seen better days. There is a faint hint of apple scent but it has blended with an alcohol scent. It needs to go into the throw-away pile.

Today is my daughter’s 36th birthday. She is not here to celebrate with me as I’d like. This Apple Body Splash was one of her signature scents. I hoped for a small miracle but didn’t get one.

It’s OK. I can still find a reason to smile by just holding the bottle.

This is my third blog. The first covered what I thought would be my hardest battle. The second blog covered the journey that made the first seem trivial. This time I write because I can, not because I have to or need to.
