five senses friday

Abby has resurrected Five Senses Friday, and I decided to join in. Here's a bit of what I've been enjoying this week:

::homemade wheat bread with herbed brie
::tangerine baked tofu with couscous and vegetables
::homemade ginger ale (using Stephanie's recipe)

::lots of sunshine, even when it was freezing
::more of my neighborhood, as I'm walking and busing a little more these days
::two more rolls of film

::The warm cuddly-ness of my puppy
::More wool socks and warm hats
::The warm sun on my face during my walk with Freddie this afternoon, as it's finally above freezing again

::Another box of tangerines sent by my mom
::my morning coffee (always)

::my new mix cd from Claire

I also wanted to point you over to Maria's post on 3191 Miles Apart this week. I'm not sure if any of you have been following along in her and Stephanie's new blog, but it's absolutely lovely. Maria's post this week really spoke to me and reminded me a lot of my relationship with my own grandma, who I've been thinking about a lot recently, as the fourth anniversary of her passing was just a few days ago. Much love to you all this weekend, hug someone you love.


  1. Oh, I love this. Your sense post and the post at 3191. My gram is 96 and I cried my eyes out when I moved across the country from her. She is so special to me and as the times I see her get further and further apart, I miss her more and more.

  2. I'm doing Five Senses Friday, too, and I'm so glad I found your blog! Lovely photos on today's post, and yay on the February Lady sweater--I've got it backed up in my to-do queue! I just joined Ravelry so am feeling my way around the site. Cheers!
