Senses

family backyard plans via bhg
Seeing: Tulips popping through the dirt, and random bits of sunshine. A fridge full of fruits and vegetables after today's trip to Costco.  Piles of laundry that were avoided.  Happy messes. 

Feeling: Dirt between my fingers when I planted phase one of spring vegetables. Motivated with big plans to do something with our yard this year.  Yard envy as I browse Better Homes and Gardens.    

Hearing: "Brother/Sister Power!" The new catch-phrase to remind Miss A and de-Man to be kind to each other. Miss A reading to her brothers. 

Smelling: Garlic and lemon roasting with chicken.  A yummy new recipe is in the oven as we speak.

Tasting: Leftover chewy pretzel bites.  I need to set a limit on how often I'm making these, because twice every three days isn't going to work out in the long run. 

Today was lovely.

So let it be written, so let it be knows...there should NEVER be a limit to how often one makes those pretzel bites!
