Five-Senses Friday

March 23, 2012

The magnolias and daffodils are fading; the redbuds and forsythia are blooming; the flowering pears are breathtaking; the oaks are leafing out. It’s been in the 80s the past three days, but is thankfully cooler today. The part of me that knows the season by observing nature is very confused, but happy to be outside so early.

Today I am…

seeing: fur I still need to vacuum up, chubby baby thighs and feet, my own bare feet, a clean kitchen, color in new ways after reading The Giver this week

hearing: birds chirping away; the wind chime’s soft music; Cedarmont Kids music, currently “What A Friend We Have In Jesus”; the fun a baby can have with a paper bag; the hum of the dryer

feeling: cool breezes through open windows, a baby tooth (teeth?) waiting to pop through, the gentle rise and fall of a tiny set of lungs

smelling: the freshness of earth just after a rain

tasting: store brand Cheerios and a banana shared with baby; turkey sandwich and grapefruit


For more Five-Senses Friday, see my friend Cindy (newly Dr. Cindy!) at la, fleur, epuisee. She is my inspiration.

    Felt the same way about color after reading the Giver. Made me appreciate more around me. Love your new profile picture!
