I read once that you don’t really need air fresheners. If your house is clean, it will smell clean. I thought that was a snarky comment, if snarky is even a word. Well, I’m using it anyway because I like it.
We stopped using them when we got married, but one of my favorite memories is the smell of strawberries from his air freshener in his living room during Christmas in Alexandria while we dated.
I’m not much of a house cleaner, but the comment I usually receive when my husband arrives home is, “It smells good in here.” (in regards to dinner)
Behind on my writing throughout the pregnancy, I didn’t cook much, and this conversation followed:
“It stinks in here.”
“No, it doesn’t.”
“Well, it smells stuffy and old like a grandma’s house.”
“That’s because I don’t have anything on the stove.”
“You mean, this is what the house actually smells like?”
“Uh, I guess.”
Makes me laugh. Guess I’ll have to keep that crock pot a bubblin’. Well, or the house cleaner…..yeah, I’ll go for the crock pot.
