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.

Sight

–We continue to watch the volcano steam across our sky. They say it may be done or it is building up for another blow.
Sound

Smell

–My daughter and her friends were talking about how everyone has a scent. Their home and themselves smell a certain way. One of her friends smells like coconut all the time, another has a citrus scent, and they said that she smells like clean cotton all the time, like a Downy scent. I have to confess I love the smell of clean cotton and so everything I buy smells like it. What a better way to stink, than that of something clean. =]

Taste

–This week my tastes have included sweet and salty chocolate chip cookies, saute vegetables, chamomile tea, and water with fresh lime.

Touch

–My son needs a haircut, my husband keeps reminding me. My son loves long hair and I can’t help but play with his curls when we are all gathered on the couch. He just turned 16 and there is something about playing with his curls that takes me to a time when he was 16 months.

Here he is after winning 1st place for ceramics with his sister and her friend.

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.
