Five Senses Friday

vanity green
A lot of progress...Others may not see it but it is here...Quietly happening under the roof and the ceilings and my skin...

Hearing: Incessant meows. Drooke is practicing for the opera today. She will not be satisfied...

Tasting: Oatmeal chocolate chip cookie and black tea. Breakfast. I was too tired to make anything this morning. Even slicing the bread seemed a chore too great.

Touching: My old {amazing} mid-century desk which I took apart, brought downstairs piece by piece and reassembled in my bedroom yesterday afternoon. I will now have two work spaces when the livingroom/office is finished. I love this desk.

Smelling: Tea and Nanette Lepore perfume. I bought a bottle of perfume {or three + Fleur de corail and Bob Mackie} for 95% off...I'm not a perfume wearer by nature but thought I should have some just in case I feel the urge to wear it...Plus, the bottles were worth the $4...Pretty. My Mother ends up with all my unused perfume. Poison, I wore a few times; Gucci Rush, I loved but it was too strong; Others, all used once. So Mom, here's a preview of your future scents... ;)

6th Sense...
Intuition: The calm before the storm...Not all storms are bad...

What is happening in your sensory world today?

Seeing-a lot has to be done, I think I should use your point of view
hearing- for now only the hum and I like it
smelling-my coffee
tasting- coffee and donut (naughty)- I do plan to limit (not kick) the donut habit
touching- now the keyboard
intuition-I better get organized

I love the perfume bottles and I like that you let your mom see her future perfumes : )

I love perfumes, colognes, scents, incense, perfume sticks, candles...i love them :) I envy you that you have a work room. I don't have whenever I start working on a project, I have my art stash all ou ton my bed and the stuff flows onto my floor :) hehehe. I hope you enjoy your weekend!

You're right about the storms. Sometimes a storm can clean things up and make them all shiny and new.

I'm not much for perfume either. Except for Chanel No. 5 and Lancome's Miracle, on those occasions when I feel pretty.

I hope you have a lovely weekend, Andrea.

strong smell of lemons as I cut them for my tea

feel of my cat brushing my leg for attention

kitty purs and my kettle going off in unison

taste of apple crumb cake for breakfast!

Feeling today should be handled with care

sun creeping between the blinds letting me know he is to awake too.

This is such a cool post idea! Oatmeal cookies and black tea sound delicious! My "taste" has been banana/chocolate cupcakes and masala chai tea!
