Five Senses Friday

Seeing: Stars...My vision is sparkly due to lack of sleep...When I close my eyes my head is filled with a constellation strewn sky...The prettiest bokeh.

Hearing: A deep, dull hum. A noise that makes me physically ill. Makes me clench my teeth. Nothing blocks it and it keeps me awake. I have no idea what it is...

Tasting: Vitamin C drops...Echinacea Tea {a new addiction}

Touching: The softest jersey night gown against my prickly legs {time to pull a blade across my knees}

Smelling: Strawberry Body Shop lotion, tea, orange...

6th Sense...
Intuition: I need to jump.

What is happening in your sensory world today?

Have a wonderful Friday!

Hot shower with Honey Almond

Strong coffee taste waking me up slowly

coco chanel from the day before lingering in the air

I can hear the birds singing through insulated walls.

Silver dust on my hands

The pages of my newest book coming to life in my hands

Birds gathering on my porch letting me know they are hungry ( and I forgot to feed them!)

Pulling on my soft sweater to warm myself in this cold morning

orange oil

laughing with friends who nourish my soul

spinach, vanilla, and strawberries all blended up together

vitamin e oil on my face - uncomfortable, but nourishing

stickiness on my bare feet and on my keyboard - I need to clean up around here

chilly air on my bare shins

Tim in the kitchen pouring cereal

the dark outline of the avocado plant against the glow from the single lamp

needing to keep going, just for today, because in a few hours the weekend starts and suddenly I won't have to keep going, but will want to anyway. for now it is a chore.

Well, before I started reading I was going to say that mine does not amount to a whole lot and mentally trying to tell myself that I am grateful, I am grateful. Reading yours I feel I can share...
vision- tired eyes, Augustus did not come in last night, meows at 5 a.m. I got up twice in the middle of the night calling for naughty, this is the second time, so I am tired

smell- the pollen situation is bad here and I cycle between not being able to breathe and cough to coming indoor in the artificial environment where I can breathe...

taste- coffee and donuts (so naughty, stress made me do it)

touch- keyboard and I love it

intuition-I need to jump too...a lot to cram into my short day


Go shave those legs and do a little dance...did you go to the salon, blow dryer heat can really help with head colds

Ah Lizzie...I feel the poetry even in your simplest words...I hope the weekend brings you inspiration and rest. xo

MLJ...Bad Cat! Out partying all night! Teenagers! ;) Hope you sleep really well over the weekend! xo

Thank you Lynn...Five Senses Friday was, alas, invented by someone else...I first saw it on the blog "Abby try Again", she accredits Shari Altman with it's inception...
I've added the 6th myself...Where would women be without intuition?
Have a wonderful weekend!
