five senses friday – september 10

i’ve been wanting to get this blog back to being a bit more personal.  it certainly started out having more thrifting and food and other things i do in it.  and let me tell you, i always want to talk about food, but the light’s never good when i have it to photograph.  no more excuses!  if you’ve been reading a while, you’ll know that ben and i have a sabbath practice… and that because ben works in a church, we celebrate our sabbath on friday.  so friday is the perfect day for this practice too – a time to step back from the work of the other 6 days and reflect a bit.  my fear, however, is that you’ll still find me the same… i do dye/knit/spin etc full time you know ;)

i pulled this from the lovely fibery shannon, but i believe its origin is elsewhere.

A weekly ritual of sensual reflection, adopted from Abby’s blog. Play along if you wish, in the comments or link to your own blog.

tasting: tabouli! local parsley, garlic, tomatoes (some our own), and onions.  if our roommate liked peppers, there would also be local peppers.

tasting: tabouli

smelling: newly dyed wool – as i mention every time, i had to tidy/rework my work space again.  this time i have way more shelf space for wool which was very needed due to the new yarn line.

hearing: kittens – i’m waiting for animal friends to call with a date for us to low cost spay/neuter these two.  in the meantime, one likes to meow at me from the window sill.

  1. I like this idea! It’s a good way to see what’s going on around you. And it seems like work spaces are always in need of reorganizing. Using them just makes messes! And then you’re too busy making things to pay attention to the mess. oh well.

  2. Enjoying a sabbath day is something I try to keep but it doesn’t happen most of the time. :) Good luck keeping up with yours.

    I love your shelf for yarny goodness.
