Five Senses Saturday

FSS

So my first Five Senses Saturday of the year, and I can say with certainty that it will be done every Saturday because I'm finally back on track with my blog.

I think back on the year of 2011 and a little of 2010, when I sort of abandoned my blog, I wasn't posting much at all and then I felt bad for not posting, so I took on lots of reviews and it just ruined what my blog was about.  Very glad to have gotten past that little hiccup and back to what it is.

And that is why I know that this will be an ongoing feature and not just started up again only to fall off the bandwagon within two weeks or so.

Anyway, onwards and forwards, as always if you wish to do one of your own feel free to, but let me know so that I can come and read yours :) 


::Hear::


- Absolutely love Ashokan Farewell and have been relaxing to it all week
- A.N.T. Farm on the TV
- Birds chirping outside, the back door is open for the dogs to go potty
- Lola and Bella playing in the backyard
- My husband chatting with Jasmine


::See::


- frost on the grass
- my candle burning
- the sunlight hitting the folksy chickens on the window sill
- my kids faces when they hear the door open when daddy comes home from work
- my coffee cup with just a few sips left


::touch::


- Lola's soft velvety ear as she snoozes next to me on the couch
- the soft feel of the hot water bottle as I snuggle it close to my stomach
- dough as I knead it to make buttermilk bread
- hot water in the sink
- rough calluses on my husbands hand as he touches mine


::taste::

2013_01090053

- slice of buttermilk bread with wild blueberry jam
- three cheese pasta bake
- caramel latte
- first mcdonald's burger in almost two years, and it was nasty
- peanut butter chocolate cup


::smell::

Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte

- cinnamon sprinkled on my latte
- lavender linen water sprayed on the clothes as I ironed
- coconut and sea air yankee candle burning
- my white diamonds perfume
- the korean restaurant as I sit in the car at the traffic light

This is a great idea. A good way to take the time to capture all that's in front of us.

So happy that you are back to enjoying blogging, because you have a lovely way of expressing yourself with your writing and pictures, and I am a faithful reader!

Tee-hee, laughed here when you said you had a McD hamburger for the first in 2 years and it was....(I first thought you wrote tasty!!!) but it was awful. Yep, can understand that!

Thanks for five senses Saturday...really enjoy it...makes me feel closer to you.

P.S. I think about Idaho a lot more than I ever have in my life!!!

I looked at the number of posts unread beside your name in my reader and I was shocked! 14! Where did they all come from?! You've been on a writing roll I would say! :v)

I love this meme and if I can remember I think I would love to start joining in.
