Observing My Senses

For Today, November 24, 2012...

I am seeing...the sunlight as it streams in through the window all over the kitchen counter.  I see a half decorated Christmas tree in the living room.  I see decorations that bring good memories and bittersweet ones.

I am feeling...the cool breeze coming in through the kitchen window.  The stickiness of my fingers that got syrup on them.  The joy of seeing my house decorated for the holidays.

I am hearing...the coffee maker do its job.  Birds chirping in the trees.  And silence, because my offspring are still asleep.

I am tasting...bacon, waffles, coffee, syrup.  In that order.

I am smelling...very little.  The boxes that came down from the attic were covered in dust, causing my allergies to spring to life.  Thank goodness for Benadryl.  I would have had a sleepless night otherwise.

It just takes a moment to observe your surroundings.  Won't you join me?
