The Five Senses


Right now I am:

Listening: to Chick Corea. I saw him last weekend at the jazz festival and I've been reliving it all week.

Tasting: a new to me wine variety from Argentina - Malbec. It is slightly bold with a taste of berries and a slight smokiness. It is especially good with a thick slice of kalamata olive bread from the farmer's market!

Watching: Life on the Discovery Channel. So fascinating!

Smelling: fresh baked banana bread. It feels so good to be baking again. It has been awhile. Today it is for the church's bread ministry (new members are welcomed with a visit from an elder and a loaf of bread) but tomorrow I'll be baking for us.

Feeling: grateful! I am so very grateful for some special friends in my life who really add a bright spot to my days.

Anticipating: a wild night at the school's carnival! We have a great PTA so it should be a good time.

Enjoying: the normal and the ordinary of everyday.
