Coming To My Senses::S'mores

I see... topaz tongues dancing, cracked logs teepee'd, enveloping shadows

I smell... melted chocolate, pungent smoke as it swirls about me in the wind shift and know that my hair will need to be washed


I hear... crackling logs, hissing steam, giggles of my kids

I taste... liquid pillows of sugary goodness, ,the crunchy char on a flaming puff, the melting chocolate ooze on a bed of grahams, and the smoke stinging the back of my throat


I touch... the crumbling crackers, the rough logs, the cold beer bottle quenching a flaming thirst

I feel... that summer is slipping through my fingers, the lingering kiss of my beloved making my whole face light up (not just the side facing the flames), there is a delight in simple pleasures.

What is coming to your senses today?

Enjoy the day!

Mmmmm, yummy for the tummy! My senses feel oppressive heat, humidity, and sweat today. A good day to stay inside as much as possible.

Have a great week!

Summer always seems to slip away and cool autumn nights come but the best of everything is when you share with loved ones no matter how fast it goes! You are a lucky woman!!!!!!

Oh, I loooove these posts! I'm going to take a page from you and say do more! What I love most about them is the sense that you've slowed down your day to one moment, and appreciated it to the fullest. Just beautiful.

I just love the smell of a campfire...there is nothing better than sitting around the fire with the ones you love!

Oooh! We've been having a lot of those too! We camp out every other weekend and always remember to bring the s'mores stuff.

Thank you for sharing the simple pleasures of life with us. Your description was eloquent I could almost hear the crackle of the fire. Today was a hot and sticky day here in London and I read in the shade for hours between chores, I lost myself in the book to avoid a bad day as much as possible. I won't go into details.

Not much happening with my senses today. Can't smell anything through a blocked nose, can only hear ringing in my ears, taste buds are non existent and I feel like c&@p due to a doozy of a cold. So I think I'll just sit at my desk and see what weird and wonderful things I can create with a brain that's foggy. Also it's a bit hard to wire wrap whilst wrapped in a blankey!
