So it's been a long, long time since I've done a five senses post. I thought it would be a good choice for a Monday evening before a short work week.
My hair feels like straw. I'm in need of a good shampooing. But while I was at my aunt's today, I spent some time with their Aussie Shepherd, Tucker. He's such a sweetie, and he was cuddled up to me today and I got to pick some burrs from his fur - he's a farm dog after all.
The evening air. I love leaving the windows open while I sleep. I like my nose to be chilled while the rest of me is tucked snugly in bed. Hmm, getting sleepy just thinking about it!
I went to my favourite unknown antique dealer today. He's the Pontiac's best kept secret - although he publishes his "garage sales" in the local paper's classifieds. Today was the last time he opened for the season. I went up yesterday too. In both trips, I bought two little vintage pictures, some enamel-wear bowls and sauce pans, a vintage children's book about King Arthur with beautiful colour plates, and a wash basin and pitcher. My grandmother and mother bought me my Christmas presents. I'm pretty excited about those. I think I'm this guy's best customer.
The wonderful thing about big family turkey dinners is the left overs. And my mother's cream of turkey soup. I brought a container of it back to the city. And we had turkey sandwiches for lunch today. Love it. I'm not a big fan of the big turkey dinners - it just seems like so much fuss - but I will admit the left overs are pretty stellar.
I got Sara Bareilles' new album: Kaleidoscope Heart. Fantastic!
