Saturday Senses

tasting :: sautéed zucchini, chickpeas and tomatoes with israeli couscous.

hearing :: willie nelson’s demo sessions.

smelling :: peanut butter from my waffles this morning.

seeing :: when i see the amount we have paid so far for our adoption plus what we still need to pay – about $35,000 in all – my blood pressure rises. working on a grant application put this all in front of my eyes this week. hello, stress!

feeling :: squeezed/tight/constricted. spring break is still far enough away i don’t believe it is actually going to happen and i’m finally worried about money for adoption – i guess my long-held denial may be coming to an end.

wishing/hoping :: we can all find a little peace and calm this long week before spring break.

  1. What are your senses this Saturday?
    listening to the dogs pant & the AC run
    feeling my tight hips as I sit cross-legged & my heart opening more & more

    Looking back, how was your week?
    my week was long, frustrating, i’m shedding the ego, finding my inner 8 year old.. so a lot of ‘purging’ has been done!

    i love reading about your week,.. the sensory action and all!

  2. I had the kind of week where I convinced myself a hundred times that I was losing it. I took the day off yesterday. Some highlights:

    tasting – lettuce-wrapped smoked tofu burger with a side of curly fries from Burgers & Brew (yesss!)

    hearing – silence, or at least the pursuit of silence, in hopes of soothing my brain

    smelling – yes, actually smelling — my first (nearly) allergy-free spring season in my entire life

    seeing – my mom for an unplanned lunch visit, nice

    feeling – nutso, with a migraine cherry on top

    wishing/hoping – to center myself in the “now”

    Hugs to you. I too hope that you find the peace and calm that you so need and deserve.

    • @leili:
      i’m so glad you took a day off. i did too that week and let me be the first to say it was exactly what i needed to release some of my built up pressure.
      when are we having a burgers and brew date? are you thinking you are allergy free because of all your ayervedic work?

  3. heart feeling: A need for some solitude today. There hasn’t been much of that in my life this week.

    touch feeling: My feet are COLD. The grass was damp outside.

    seeing: My new pair of Vans slip-on socks sent to me by my friend Susie B. from Maryland. I got a package! :) She also sent me a morning affirmations card with a mermaid on it because we’ve been joking that we’re glad we’re not mermaids because they can’t wear shoes. We can wear shoes AND sea shell bras if we like. So there!

    Hearing: my husband clattering on something in the kitchen, and repeatedly telling our puppy, “That’s enough!” (She howls back each time.)

    Smelling: Toast. mmmmmmm.

    Tasting: Coffee.

    Have a great week, Tam! I’ve been thinking of you!

    • @johanna: i hope you found some solitude and some warmth for your feet. snail mail and packages are the best. i can totally picture guy talking to the puppy and her having none of it.

      we need to set up a brunch or something (lunch? coffee?) soon. <3
