Five Senses Friday


What a lovely ritual from the resurrected Little Birds! I decided to join in, and hope you readers will do likewise:

Sight:
Johnny's drill team-esque dance to Glenn Beck's theme song; hysterical.
Sunlight dancing on our neighbor's walls.
A turquoise glass bottle (hiding a tealight) hanging in the window.
Glowing gold leaf on our Nativity icon.
While unloading groceries from my car, I caught an owl flying slowly and gracefully over the field behind our parking lot. He looked at me with dignity and flew right on by.

Smell:
Nutmeg in Guayaki Mate Chocolatte, this morning's pick-me-up.
Tulasi cinnamon incense.
Tom's of Maine Long-Lasting Calendula Deodorant Roll-On when I don't fear much sweat; smells nice and clean.
Frankincense & Myrrh Eau de Zum perfume.
Kiss My Face Vanilla Earth Moisture Shave.

Taste:
Oatmeal with a generous amount of honey, unsweetened Silk soy milk, and sliced banana.
The Apothecary's Garden chamomile medicinal candy.
Jason PowerSmile Plus CoQ10 whitening toothpaste gel - very pepperminty.
Back to Nature macaroni and organic cheese.
Sweet potatoes with Brummel & Brown and cinnamon.

Hear:
Our melodic back porch windchime.
Harley Cat's morning purr as I placed him on my tummy.
Rabbit Fur Coat CD by Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins.
Airplane soaring overhead.
Tea kettle whistling.

Touch:
Slick, glossy cover of the new Image journal which arrived yesterday.
Cool, smooth, thin, well-read pages of the New Geneva Study Bible I've had since 1998.
Soft, comforting cream-colored throw given to us by my Mom's friend, Sandy.
Hugs from Johnny.
Sticky Pilates mat as I stretched this morning.

FYI, the Tom's deodorant burned my pits. It may not burn yours, but it might. Test it on your forearm first. I went back to Lafe's roll-on.
