Friday Reflections is all about reflecting on the week by observing our senses. My hope is that this will be a gentle, easy way to tune into how we are doing and what we are experiencing weekly when journaling in general can feel so daunting.
Now, for this week’s Friday Reflections (with each sense as your inspiration, consider how experiencing it impacted your week).
Here is my sensory round-up for this week:
tasting :: vegetarian lasagna, linguine with shrimp, roasted tomatoes, and spinach, chocolate chip quinoa trail mix balls, chicken goat cheese quesadillas , poppy seed chicken, squash and mushroom orzo
hearing :: shrieking, giggling cousins as they had a marathon, birthday-caked fueled 8 hour splash pad, playground play date. Also: squabbling. And myself saying plenty of times, “Don’t tell me. If you don’t want her to do that, just tell her that you don’t like that.”
smelling :: the local coffeehouse. I had a meeting there on Monday morning and I smelled like coffee beans until Tuesday morning’s shower.
seeing :: orange cauliflower. For reals, who knew there was such a thing as orange cauliflower? My neighbor is growing it in her garden and it is beautiful.
feeling :: so excited about The Healthy, Happy, Sane Teacher. It is just the kind of program that would have allowed me to sustain myself as a teacher and I am so excited that Tami and I have partnered together for this project.
wishing/hoping :: for a peaceful, easy weekend.
