five senses friday #9

It was a short work week for me, but still a very full week none the less.  Here are the highlights in just five senses.

  • seeing: red, white and blue everywhere. i bought these little flags yesterday. and yes, i’m the kind of guy that irons out the creases before putting them out.
  • tasting: freshly made pesto. as i was watering this morning, i saw my first beetle gnawing at a tender basil leaf. an action plan was created and now there are two jars of amazing basil & walnut pesto in the fridge.
  • hearing: a trio of poppy & delightful new summer tunes from some fabulous ladies. Summer Day by Sheryl Crow, King of Anything by Sara Bareilles, and Cry When You Get Older by Robyn.
  • smelling: fresh air. we’ve had some wonderfully moderate temps lately. i’ve enjoyed opening up the house and breathing in deeply.
  • feeling: introspective. what else would i be doing with my life, if i knew i could not fail? and should i be afraid of failing, anyways?

I wish you all a wonderful weekend.  Here’s the flower that didn’t get posted yesterday. My own little natural fireworks in the back garden.

  1. Your Five-Senses-Fridays are so refreshing – and inspiring! Thanks for posting and for inspiring me to a greater awareness of the stuff that makes up my life. By the way, your images are always so wonderful. Frequently, the call to mind the work of Greta D. Sibley – poetic, joyously ordinary, an artistic celebration of the day to day, but yours, unlike her’s, are delightfully colorful. So, here goes, my 5SF: Seeing – splashes of flowering summer color in pots and beds in every neighborhood I travel through; Tasting – summer ripe homegrown raspberries; Hearing – bird song at twilight; such a peaceful sound at the end of the day; Smelling – Akron’s Rib Burn-Off … smokey, savory. brings out the carnivore in me. Feeling – tactile, air dried crips cotton sheets (smelling of fresh air and sunshine) emotionally, grounded, balanced, happy, grateful.
