My good friend, the Urban Hippie … found here: https://theurbanhippie.wordpress.com … does a piece called Five Senses Monday. Something she adapted from another blogger only with her own twist. I love it so much that I’d like to do my own. After all, imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?
Five Senses Monday is a reflection of the past few days via the 5 senses. So I’m going to try my hand at it and you feel free to play along!
TASTING: It wasn’t a hugely exciting weekend for food and drink but I did deviate from my normal organic, clean eating to indulge in a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks … though more so for the purpose of a caffeine / energy boost after 4 short hours of sleep – needed to wake up to go into work on my day off. Ugh!
HEARING: the most annoying kitchen faucet drip from the kitchen (hence the lack of zzz’s) … the Nationwide commercial jingle for like the billionth time (hate that commercial lol) … carts clanging and registers beeping as the holiday hustle n bustle has taken over the grocery and department stores
SMELLING: the delicious smells of a once-too-frequently visited coffee shop … rotisserie chicken while making my way through Costco … the fresh air during an early morning hike
FEELING: grateful for all that I’ve been blessed with, including the love of my life and the cherished time we get to spend together … ready to dive into the Christmas “spirit” – but first stop: Turkey Day!!!
SEEING: the beauty in God’s creation as we hiked through Garland Ranch Regional Park in Carmel Valley. This place has everything from oak trees and thistley bushes to ferns and moss-covered rocks and trees. The landscape varies from open fields and foresty-type spots to jungle-like terrain with hanging vines and dried up waterfalls. So much to explore here and we haven’t even scratched the surface.
Some of the photos from our hike:
Okay – your turn! What did your weekend look like … smell like … taste like?
