FIVE SENSES FRIDAY morning edition

Abby's hosting the return of Five Senses Friday and I'm playing along.

Sight:



- vintage toys i picked up yesterday from the free box(!) at the antique store

- a Brownie Target Six-20 Jeff inherited from his Uncle Erwin who recently passed away

- old family photos brought back from St. Charles, IL; some of them taken with the above camera

- the handcarved stamp tutorial by Geninne (i'm really looking forward to getting around to this project and accumulating a collection like hers. so cool.)

Feel:



- Huey's collar of the softest white fur

- goosebumps on my arm before the heater kicked on (it's another cold, clear, beautiful day here in Corvallis)

Hear:



- listening to the conversation at breakfast

Taste:



- toast made from the homemade bread left on our stoop yesterday evening by Joe who trades goodies like this for saxophone lessons with Jeff

- polishing off the last of the second batch of rice pudding

Smell:



- the coffee grounds waiting to be brewed (1/2 Ethiopian - dry roasted by a friend, and 1/2 decaf Guatemalan - mild so as to not compete with the Ethiopian)

- the juice of 2 lemons squeezed before they dry out

- our sweet daphne bouquet still going strong on the dining room table

Thanks for reminding us to take it ALL in, Abby.
