Six Senses Sunday

I've wanted to do 5 senses Friday for sometime and when Melanie figured out that there needed to be an addition of the 6th sense...I decided to jump right in...2 weeks later...and when she changed it to Sunday...I liked it even better. So here is my list, after a great weekend in the mountains!
See:
* Sandhill Cranes!! Flying in, landing and eating in the Bosque del Apache
* Geraniums in the winter sunshine
* A small love note taped to the window by a loving granddaughter

Touch:
* My favorite flannel shirt
* Warm blankets, just the perfect weight to keep me warm but not feel smothered
* Glue on my fingers, glitter and paper stuck to me because of it

Taste:
* Home made maple walnut scones
* Green chili , beans and warmed tortillas
* Strawberry sushi with wasabi and pickled ginger! Really good...

Hear:
* Leonard Cohen Live from London, yes again... okay still... and always
* The cranes flying over head
* Friends laughter

Feel:
* Astonishment at the perfect timing of looking over just as a petal fell off a bloom
* Annoyance at one of my favorite authors for such an unsatisfying ending to a good book
* The pleasure of my friends' company

Smell:
* Bacon cooking
* A touch of spring in the rain
* The way the heater smells in a car when it is really cold and it comes on...

I had such a lovely weekend with my friends and even got to help with a fund raiser for a Performing Arts Series that brings great entertainment opportunities to a small town. It also gave me the chance to sit and do art for 3 hours! Hope your weekend was lovely too!
