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 :: cream tortellini soup, wheat berry, ricotta, and kale stuffed shells, and chunky vegetable soup (all courtesy of loving friends who surprised us with food when they heard the combined blows that my dad was hospitalized then I came down with a stomach virus as soon as I got back in town), greek salad, movie popcorn and chocolate covered pretzels (the perfect salty and sweet combination at the theatre), cornbread muffins, roasted cauliflower, homemade rolls, steamed broccoli, vegetable barley soup
hearing :: sweet little children singing Christmas Carols at the preschool Christmas program. Also, Happy telling the audience that his Christmas wish was World Peace. Surely, he was coached (not by me, we were totally surprised!), but if you can’t be sentimental and sappy at the holidays, when can you be? Here’s to world peace and little kid’s singing.
smelling :: not much. ‘Tis the season for a sinus infection. Sadness.
seeing :: Catching Fire (heart racing good), little holiday goodness everywhere as our house is now fully decorated. From boughs of Frasier Fir and Cypress to twinkling lights, I dig holiday dressing.
feeling :: bittersweet– am so happy to have my grading done for the year but always sad to say goodbye to another sweet class of students.
wishing/hoping :: for continued recovery and progress for my sweet Papito and some super power energy to get miraculously caught up on everything that I am behind on.
