{ Five Senses Saturday }

Hello??? Anyone still there? Oy, I have just been awful at updating this week, I've been so busy and haven't had a chance at all to get on the computer, if I didn't have my Happy Homemaker Monday and Cooking Thursday posts already set to post, I would be in trouble.

Lots going on here, lots of fresh air and warm sun, cooking and housework and walking and having fun, it always gets a little crazy when the warm weather arrives, but I'm hoping to still come in everyday and say hi. This week was just a fluke, I'll leave it at that.

So here's what's been going on around here:

- Owl City "Fireflies"
- Jets running in the distance
- My children laughing in the backyard
- My mom's voice on the phone, it's good to call home
- Jasmine singing from her bedroom

Love this, Sandra! You are right, nothing better than kids after a bath. Well, kids almost any time! I remember the smell of my abncient lemon tree too, and the blossom, and just rubbing the leaves. I always think of it when I pop over to your place, you know - you and lemons go together in my mind in the best of ways!

Some weeks are just like that, aren't they?

Yum, yum, yum. Fried chicken. Haven't had that in forever. I might just have to make next weekend.
