My husband and I went for a walk on the beach and cute little guy came to say hello. I could not get a great shot because he kept moving, so it is a little blurry.

Redoubt erupted again today. This is not my greatest shot ever but I love seeing the volcano looking over our seemingly normal little town.

When I lived in Wyoming we owned our own home with one acre of land and we always had a very large garden. I could spend hours in my vegetable and flower gardens. I loved my yard, loved fresh vegetables and loved nurturing my family in ways I could not even comprehend. There is something about planting, growing and feeding your family that makes you feel industrious.

I was just chatting with Jackie over at Smoothpebble about this very thing. She is making laundry soap and she is very excited about it, she asked if it was silly. I completely understand why it makes her so excited. We live in a consumer driven world, blah, blah, I know, but it is true. Our great-grandmothers would be rolling in their graves if they seen how easy we have it.

I think things like sewing, hand made crafting, gardening, and soap making are dying in our homes. It is sad really because it is so rewarding when we take the time to do it. Now I will get off my soap box. =]

I watch Martha Stewart faithfully, I even record it. The other day she made a salad table that allows you to grow salad greens and herbs on your porch. They even made a salad box that you can just put in a small space. I called my husband right away and told him he was making me one. I am so excited to grow things again.

What do you do with your hands to create and nurture yourself and others? I am really interested so please do share even if it is a goal that you would like to do in the future.

Sight
This week we have been doing nothing but volcano watching. If we are not down there watching it we are on the internet reading the reports and watching squiggly lines. I am a proficient squiggly line reader, I bet you did not know that about me.

Last night about 11:20pm the volcano was going off and there was flames and lightening lighting up the sky. I was not fast enough to get these shots but the shot below and others of this eruption are available here.

Sound
My daughter went with her friend to Arizona over spring break for a week and the house was so quiet. She came home and now the house is filled with noise. Her begging me to let her do something, her screaming at her dad to stop teasing her, her laughing, even her hour long showers are making noise. Man, it is great to have her back.

Smell
I have a certifiable sensitive sniffer, seriously! This is gene I have handed down to my children and it drives him nutty. I was telling him last night that I can smell the volcano, that I can actually tell when it has erupted without looking at the site or being down on the beach watching it. It smells like fireworks, kind of. My daughter got up this morning and was eating cereal at the table and I let the dogs out and the smell swept in and she says, “What is that smell?” I just have to smile and it fills me with pride.

Taste
I love Benihana’s Yakisoba but I can’t afford to go there weekly to have it. I have been researching this week and making it at home. I think I have almost got it. It might not taste exactly like theirs but it will be close and have my signature on it. Maybe I will share my recipe this week.

Touch
I have been holding my camera a lot lately. I shoot a Canon 50D, it is quite large compared to the XT I used to shoot with. Weeks like this I miss my little comfortable camera but the images are so much better with the 50D so I deal with it.
