Rainy Mood, Petrichor



I love rainy fall days.  The petrichor.  And especially the sound of rain.  (Wishing you had that sound right now?  I often do.  Rainymood.com is just the fix.)

I never knew there was a name for that very distinct smell! I'm enjoying it today, too; love a rainy day.

I would always call it 'piso mojado' 'wet ground' in spanish. That smell always relaxes me. It's one of the 3 smells that can control my mood/emotions. I know weird.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .
