five senses friday

  • seeing – the herbs in my potted garden thriving. And yes, I know that I probably shouldn’t allow the garlic chives to flower, but I just couldn’t resist those beautiful little white blossoms.  The bees have been quite fond of them, as well.
  • tasting the club ciabatta sandwich at The Creperie. Why do sandwiches always taste better when someone else makes them? Because they use crispy fried prosciutto, that’s why.
  • hearing cheers for my niece’s volleyball team. Very proud Uncle, here.
  • smelling  – the unpleasant scent of tomato plant on my hands after picking.
  • feelinghot and muggy. I need a fall-like-sweater-vest-wearing-day soon.

How would you sum up your last week in 5 senses or less?  Please share in the comments section. Hope you have  a swell weekend. We have an extra long weekend full of several visits with dear friends and a visit from the cable installation guy.

    Seeing the smile on my 94 year old Aunts face when I showed her my garden today and handed her some fresh picked tomatoes. Tasting those tomatoes with her over lunch. Hearing the many stories over again, I never get tired of hearing them. Feeling the love between a precious member of the family. Ann is not blood, but I have known her all of my life…she is very much a part of our family.
