five senses tuesday

["Lovebirds" by Geninne]

See.
-Milo sitting behind the Indian tapestry curtain in our bathroom, in the morning light.
-Gray clouds.
-Incense smoke curling every which way.
-A great new issue of Comment magazine.
-Tall pine trees swaying in the wind.

Hear.
-The dryer tumbling our towels.
-The dishwasher running.
-Bon Iver's Blood Bank EP.
-Rain on the rooftop.
-Johnny bidding his young British drum student, Harry, goodbye.

Taste.
-My first organic Honeycrisp apple. Whoa.
-Enfusia yerba mate + rooibos almond tea.
-Then a cup of Assam tea with safflowers.
-Simple bread (I subbed erythritol for agave).
-Raw macadamia nuts.

Smell.
-Cherry blossom incense lingering in the living room long after it turned to ashes.
-Scrambled eggs in coconut oil.
-Blue eucalyptus & lavender laundry liquid.
-Water lily + aloe dryer sheets.
-Cinnamon bar soap.

Feel.
-Shea butter under my eyes.
-An Epsom salt bath or two.
-Harley purring on my lap.
-Stuffing a handful of tea bags into a manila envelope bound for Brooklyn, NY.
-Grateful for Johnny and a lil' Valentine's date this weekend. We're thinking Yia Yia Mary's and Antidote. Maybe the Menil and a good movie, too.

aren't honeycrisps the best? i remember the first time i had one. unbelievable. makes those "red delicious" not so delicious.

perhaps i'll try the coconut oil/egg combo...

jenni said...

Kate, Honeycrisps are right up there with Granny Smith for me! And scrambled eggs in coconut oil is truly, strangely yummy. :)

Right?

cinnamon bar soup sounds fabulous.

jenni said...

Nicole, it really is. That and their tangerine-orange soaps are my favorites.

nicole said...

I meant to say soap, not soup. ;)

have you heard of this cinnamon soap? it has an interesting story behind it.

That's really cool, Nicole!
