Five Senses Friday


Seeing: the moon through our new telescope. More light every day. Late afternoon sunshine. Flowers in the house at all times.

Hearing: Little House on the Prarie. I'm loving the series as much now, reading it with the boys, as I did when I was growing up.

Tasting: pizza with a movie - our Friday night constant. Tonight we're watching The Absent-Minded Professor.

Feeling: warm for the first time in months. Tired - up too late too many nights this week.

Smelling: homemade bread every morning (I got this breadmaker for Christmas). Daphne in bloom (it seems early, but I've smelled it the past couple of days on the walk into school).

Happy Friday!

I was never able to read that series to my boys, but I have high hopes to read it to my daughter, as I personally never read it. Happy weekend, hope the night sky is clear.

More light every day = a way happier me. And I know just how you feel about the Little House books. I love them!

I love your Friday night family movie night. My boys are 2 and 4, so it's not happening quite yet (not a long enough attention span!) but I'm looking forward to it in the years to come. Old movies, popcorn, maybe some smores made on the woodstove... hooray!

Happy Weekend to you.

Love the five senses!!
I have been meaning to make my own for a while but Fridays are always so busy!
Nice to read yours:)

Paige said...

Happy Friday to you, too!
Hope you get some rest this weekend - I usually stay up late at night, but I've been in bed by 11:30 these days (early for me!). It's the cold, gray weather out there that just makes me want to shut-it-down at the end of the day.

I reread the Little House books this last summer....and realized exactly how influential they had been on my life!

Lecia, Now that I live in Little House on the Prairie Land I have read memoir after memoir of what it was like for those pioneers of the same time period. Although it is harsh in the story of when she's first married Manny - it doesn't even come close to what many settlers went through for decades of their lives just to exist here! Makes the lives of the old sourdoughs up north almost seem like fairy tales. I know how busy you are but let me know if you want some titles of those amazing memoirs!! This is also the longest lived section of the U.S. and there are still many elders who grew up in dugouts during their early years!

Those daffodils are absolutely gorgeous. They make my heart feel happy.

I used to love reading Little House on the Prairie as a little girl. But I only got through the first one or two books ever. I just liked the details of the ways the pioneers lived, the story was never that important!

Here's my Five Senses Friday!
