Friday Reflections


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.

What about you?  What were your sensational experiences this week?  Please share!

This post was inspired by Teacher Goes Back to School who was inspired by Pink of Perfection’s Five Sense Friday.

    Rosie, I love your reflections on the senses! Beautiful You (which I am diving into–cannot, no way, read by the day) reminds me as well to live in the moment, not to wait until things are perfect to revel in life, and simply to feel. Smelling like coffee beans sounds delightful.

    Your son is beautiful–I have read past posts, and you are an amazing mama,author, and teacher! Thank you so much for writing this book and this blog.
