Happy Friday

In honor of the Anatomy and Physiology class I’m currently taking (more about that later, maybe) and this week’s lesson on the senses, today’s post is an ode to the special senses which my textbook tells me are smell, taste, sight, hearing, and balance.

Let’s start with smell. Wednesday was errand day, and as usual we stopped by the feed store to get chicken food. If you blindfolded me, put me in one of those human-sized gyroscopes, and rolled me around for two days, you could plop me into the feed store, and I’d still know exactly where I was.



Next up is taste, specifically kale chips. They are the easiest thing in the world to make, and they’re better than popcorn! Coat them with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a little garlic; bake at 400 for 15 or 20 minutes; and behold, a super tasty treat. Really. I was skeptical until I made a batch earlier this week. Now I’m a convert.


Kale Chips


Sight . . .




Hearing has to be The Lumineers. I’ve been listening to their new album pretty much every second since it came out on April 8th. It’s a lot of fun. Here’s a sample:



And number five – balance. Yoga helps.




As, of course, does knitting . . .




I’m hoping to finish up Gramps this weekend! Woohooo!!!

Happy Friday, my friends! And happy knitting!!


  1. 1. You know I won’t wait to the post about the class you’re taking, so just text me.
    2. Kale chips were a horrible failure when we lived in Tampa. Too much humidity maybe. Haven’t tried here in TN. Perhaps it’s time to try again?
    3. Yoga: Damn, Girl! Look at you go! (Or stay, in this case, without falling on your ass)

Talk to me!
