Five Senses Friday…

I find this cute and compelling, so I’m going to try it.  It makes us really think about the state of our own selves for a minute.  Got this from “Pink of Perfection,” who got it from “Abby Try Again,” two blogs that are inspirational to me.

Five Senses, Today, Friday, March 26, 2010…

Tasting: leftover cheesy pasta and banana yoghurt.  Not a lunch full of win, lol.

Hearing: One of the puppies gnawing on what used to be a nylabone, but now resembles a spikey shank.

Smelling: Nothing.  I smell nothing.  That’s probably a good thing…

Seeing: the disappearance of dog hair from my bed, as I diligently vacuum it away.

Feeling: Pissed off, tired, and harried, but hoping for a better evening going to see “How To Train Your Dragon” with the incomparable Mr. C.

And there you have it, my honesty in all its glory!  Ask yourselves what you’re tasting, hearing, smelling, seeing, and feeling – post it on your blogs or tell me in the comments below (I do love comments, and if you leave me comments chances are my “pissed off, tired and harried” mood will vastly improve!)
