{ Five Senses Saturday }


One of the best parts of rediscovering my blog again, has been the journey through the archives and the wonderful features and memes that I used to do and completely forgot about.

Like this one for instance, I always really really loved this one and then just let it slip on by as I became busy with other stuff, became distracted by other technology and trends and decided to follow the masses.

It's quite eye opening when after a few years you sit down and suddenly realize that you were wasting time on stuff that didn't add anything positive to your life. Glad I caught myself and put a stop to it :)

But anyway, here's my Five Senses Saturday and I'm hoping to keep it up from this day onwards :) You are more than welcome to join in if you wish )


- Nicholas giggling from the couch with his new book
- The Civil Wars "Barton Hollow".  Love this band :)

- Pugs barking at the neighbor's dog outside
- My husband messing with the kids, they're all laughing and screeching

- Bangs and loud thuds coming from the house across the street as new neighbors move in



- my plants starting to grow
- my beautiful new butter dish

- the products of my labor after a day of baking

- my kids faces when they hear the door open when daddy comes home from work

- my coffee cup with just a few sips left



- the hot pan of cinnamon rolls

- my children's faces

- my soft bath mitt

- bubbles in the sink as I wash the dishes

- the screen of my kindle as I flip through the pages


- the first bite into a hot cinnamon roll
- large glass of orange juice when I start to feel sick

- the first slice of bread from the freshly hot homemade loaf

- white chocolate with hazelnuts

- sun tea



- bread baking

- laundry drying

- spaghetti sauce in the crockpot
- lavender linen water

- garlic, onion and olive oil cooking on the stove
