A friend does Five-Sense Friday on her blog, and I really enjoy the perspective. As I am slowly climbing back into the blogging world, I thought I would pick up the tradition. Thanks, Cindy.
tasting: Last night’s homemade pizza shared with good friends. A warm bowl of satisfying, stick-to-your-ribs, cholesterol-lowering oatmeal.
hearing: Water boiling on the stove for tea. Warm air blowing through the floor grate.
seeing: Fat, white flakes drifting lazily to the ground outside my window. A sleepy puppy curled up on the end of the couch. Her eyes and nose are twitching like crazy.
feeling: Cozy softness of a thick, warm sweater. Grateful for friends old and new. Later today: the prick of a needle in my arm. Thankful for life-sustaining platelets I can share with people who need them.
smelling: Not too much. We took down the Christmas tree this week, and the scent of pine went with it. I will have to light candles later: holiday sage, vanilla candy cane, frosted cedar wreath.
