Five Senses Saturday!

I haven't done my Five Senses Saturday in a LONG time, I mean a really long time, and I honestly don't know why because it's such a great way to end off the week and kinda go back and remember everything I did the past few days.

If anyone wants to play along, just let me know in my comments so I can come see yours!


- the quietness around me with both kids in school
- the landscaping people mowing lawns
- the loud roar of the jets as they do engine runs
- the phone ringing, some telemarketer leaving a message
- the radio playing in the background while I bake


- the beautiful sunsets
- the happiness on Nicholas face everytime he sees me after school
- another branch from the lemon tree broken
- Jasmine looking like a little lady, she's growing so fast
- the pugs laying on the couch napping


- the feel of the felt as I make the advent calendar
- the prick of the lemon tree branches
- arms of my husband around me
- the soft dough beneath my fingers as I make bread
- the soapy water as I wash dishes


- The flaky goodness as I bite into a Coconut Pastry
- the velvety texture of the Amarula
- one of the best burgers ever, Easy Cheesy Topped Burgers
- my favorite chocolate, Nestle Treasures
- grilled cheese sandwiches made with homemade bread


- the scent of the earth as the rain comes down
- cinnamon coffee brewing in the morning
- my lavender linen water on the bed linens
- my kids after a bath, love the smell of clean babies
- the lemons from the lemon tree out back
