Friday’s Fave Five (August 28, 2015)
But I am fine now and am very grateful to have my senses back in working order. So in honour of them rallying, below are five ways my senses blessed me this week.
ONE. SIGHT – Watching a (new to be) series about the Celts (on Amazon). I have Scottish ancestry and boy was I surprised to learn that Celts hail from Central Europe.
Your Turn . . . What is your fave sight? Has anything about your ancestry surprised you?
TWO. HEARING – Ladies Night Out at a nearby church. Our ears were treated to a concert and comedian act – lots of great music by Danny Gokey and lots of clean, funny jokes by Kerri Pomarolli. What made this extra wonderful is that a friend had an extra ticket and invited me to join her and 2 others.
Your Turn . . . What is your favourite sound? Besides music, mine is a baby’s laughter, rain on a tin roof, and my grand-daughter asking me, “What you want, Grandma?”when we are playing in her kitchen.
THREE. TOUCH – Field trip to Ocean Beach (SF) with ladies from my church. My touch receptors worked overtime feeling the sand on my feet (I always walk barefoot across the shoreline). And our faces were chaffed by the sun and wind. Even though the wind does cause some skin damage, I LOVE the wind.
Your Turn . . . What is your favourite touch? Walking barefoot on the beach is always a favourite. But then, getting a massage from someone who knows what they are doing, is also a fave.
FOUR. TASTE – Senior’s (from church) 4th Sunday meal was at The Spaghetti Factory. There is always something lovely to enjoy from the opening act of the warm bread and garlic butter to the pasta dishes to the spumoni final act.
Your Turn . . .What is your fave taste? Mine is ice cream. The only time I really want spumoni is when I am at The Spaghetti Factory. I don’t even know if you can but that flavour in the grocery store.
FIVE. SMELL – My fave perfume. I don’t wear perfume very often because so many folks at work (I work in church) have allergies. But one night I treated myself and I wore it to bed. Even if I have to say so myself, I smelled good! I will have to do this more often – silly, I know.
Your Turn . . . What is your favourite perfume? Do you wear it very often?
Why don’t you share some way(s) your senses blessed you this past week? You can link up your own post at Susanne’s Living to Tell the Story.
PS. I am probably way late to the game in learning this tidbit of sense knowledge, but did you know that humans have more than 5 senses? I just found out while writing this.
