my five senses weekend.

One of the first sites that I visit everyday is Jen Zahigian's photography blog That Wondrous Time.  Her quirky, colorful photos are absolutely magical and this weekend I was not only inspired by her photos but also her invitation to join in and write about the "Five Senses" of the week--a recap of your week by recalling the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and feelings.  Well, since it's Monday and I'm a few days late, I just wanted to share my five senses from the weekend with you and invite you to do the same!


Sweet potatoes with pecans and goat cheese (this delicious and savory/sweet recipe can be found here).


Old vehicles in West Philly (above), old trolley cars in Northeast Philly, old folks everywhere.


That bitter, yet remarkable, smell of wilting leaves.


Claude Debussy's "The Little Shepherd" - my chosen piano repertoire for the past few days
(listen to this orchestrated version on YouTube and notice the beautiful oboe playing at the beginning)


Content and thankful for my present circumstances.  I'm fortunate enough to spend my days practicing piano, teaching piano, researching teaching ideas, taking photos, going out for walks and sipping tea.  Amazing.

Thanks for sharing some time with me today!


  1. I don't always like the weekend because I miss my baby when he goes to stay with Mammy and Pap, but this was my weekend of senses (ps, I love this post)
    Tasting: Ice cold milk because for some reason it satifies my desire for coffee (which i cannot have a lot of)
    Seeing: Idea's for Christmas presents, it will be hear soon enough.
    Smelling: Perfume, Love's really a lovely fragrance.
    Hearing: My son's voice tell me all about how awesome Harry Potter was.
    Feeling: Occasional little popcorn pops inside my tummy. Can't wait until I can feel more of the baby's movements

  2. So fun! What a great photograph and post. I'm happy that you pointed me towards your blog, I love it!
