All gone

I noticed, over the weekend, that this diffuser had run out. I have no idea when the scent was exhausted. It could have been over the late fall when the windows were open and I wouldn't have noticed. I remember, around Labor Day, there was still, roughly, a quarter of an inch left in the bottle.

I felt kind of sad tossing it. I have enjoyed the scent of pine from this. Unlike a candle which can trigger my allergies, this did not. It diffused the scent gently into the air, which, given its name, "Reed Diffuser", is what it's supposed to do.

I took it apart, tossed the marbles and put the rest in the recycling. The reeds probably should have gone into the yard waste recycling, but the glass bottle and red plastic cap seemed to be things which could be recycled.

I'd grown so accustomed to seeing this sitting on the organ in the living room that it is conspicuous by its absence. A quick look through Yankee Candle shows I could get a Balsam and Cedar oil refill. Well, yes, I could, but there are a lot of things I could get before an oil refill.

It was fun to have in the house and I promise I'll use the next one someone gives me right away. Time to light up some candles.

Beverage: Dr Pepper
