My Five Senses.

Several months ago (when I guest wrote a post for Blog Around The World) I met a delightful lady named Betty who lives in Paraguay. I have enjoyed interacting with her through our blogs ever since.

I noticed awhile back that she had “tagged” me to complete a meme. Since I’m still editing flower and glass sculpture photos, I thought I’d give it a try today and see where it went…

“5 Senses Tag”

I am to list 4 things I love, and one thing I hate, for each category.
Then tag 5 people; having them do the same. (I don’t tag people so I’m going to skip that part. You can feel free to “steal” this idea from me though. Just let me know in the comments…I’d love to visit your blog to read your answers.)

Smell
1. My Grandma Ellen’s perfume, Ciara. When she passed away, the one item I requested from her home was a bottle of her perfume. I pull it out of my bathroom cabinet to smell from time-to-time and it always brings tears to my eyes.

2. When I can first open the windows in the spring and bring in that fresh, clean air. (Before the farmers start fertilizing their fields though – yuck.)

3. Pine Sol Cleaner (the smell of that means that my kitchen floor is actually clean.)

4. Vanilla.

5. Hate: Bad breath…morning breath just kills me.

Touch
1. Babies and little kid’s skin. Weston’s arms and legs are still a bit chubby and I love the feel of his chubby little arms around me!

2. Super-soft blankets and/or robes (real sexy, eh?)

3. Freshly shaved legs.

4. Mr. Sweatiepy’s fingers scratching my back. (The man knows he can get me to do ANYTHING if he’ll scratch my back.) And now I am wondering why I added this to the list – I know his response in the comments is going to embarrass the heck out of me.

5. Hate: Creepy, crawly, slimy animals. (Snakes come to mind immediately.)

Sound
1. My kids saying “I love you mom” or in Weston’s case “My wuv you more mommy!”

2. A soft, gentle rain.

3. Crickets chirping by a pond (reminds me of my childhood)

4. The voice of a loved one.

5. Hate: Snoring. Even it it’s just a real soft snore…drives me absolutely nuts.

Taste
1. Steak

2. Peanut Butter

3. Salt (I’m a “salt-a-holic”)

4. Diet Coke!!

5. Hate: Any and all seafoods. Yuck-o!

Sight
1. Pulling in the driveway to our home after any longer trip we go on. Ahhhh!

2. Flowers anywhere ~ I am longing for the sight of color here in Ohio.

3. Looking through my camera and seeing the perfect shot.

4. Watching my kids grow up to be the wonderful human beings that they are.

5. Hate: Watching my kids grow up on me. 🙁

Or, a less emotional answer would be…scary movies. I can’t watch them – ever! I am a scary movie wimp.

You can play along in the comments section. What are some of your favorite (or least favorite) things to Smell, Touch, Hear, Taste or See?

And if I don’t get a chance to say this before Sunday, I hope you all have a wonderful, blessed Easter!
