You ever watch someone, for whatever reason and then they turn around and catch you? I used to turn my head and pretend I wasn’t looking but when I caught someone looking at me and they pretended they weren’t…it was weird. I started wondering why they were staring and then my mind went into overdrive. Now, if someone catches me, I just smile and when I do…a laugh always comes out. It just leaks out like I can’t help it. Then they usually laugh and it’s all good. No feelings are hurt. Well, I love that little laugh. The smile and chuckle that makes someone’s day when it wasn’t expected. Like a little present. It’s scripture! Laughter is like medicine to the bones!
2. I love when a smell triggers a childhood memory. usually catching me off guard…it will take me back so fast it makes my head spin. The latest one was the smell of a plant blooming that used to grow in the alley behind our house when I was around four years old. Smell is an amazing sence.
3. Speaking of smell…I so appreciate the smell of cedar. When it gets hot in the summer, I can smell the cedar tree sap starting to warm up because it gives off that wonderful smell. Pinon is a close second.
4. The smell of dirt right after it starts raining! Even the tarmac or pavement has a sweet smell when the raindrops first hit. I have been known to stop everything and just take a whiff.
5. Bacon and onions cooking. If I walk into someone’s home and smell that…I’m staying for supper.
So today was all about smells. Interesting…what are some of your favorites?
