A Quick Look Back - August 2011

smkelly8 at Ruined for Life: Phoenix Edition has started a new meme to be done at the end of each month. It is called A Quick Look Back. I love this idea & am happy to be sharing my reflections w/ you each month.

In whatever form you'd like (photos, writing, etc.) share what are some of the most memorable things you've

  • Seen
  • Heard
  • Tasted
  • Touched
  • Smelled
  • Learned
  • Accomplished
this month?

So, here is my Quick Look Back at July 2011:
  • Seen: cicada shells all over the trees & fences around our yard
  • Heard: The Saint as he sings to himself while building w/ his Duplos; nature's musical performance - cicadas, blue jays, rumbling thunder & much more
  • Tasted: homemade salsa using tomatoes & a pepper from our garden
  • Touched: lots of weeds as I pulled them from the ground; The Saint when I lay on the floor next to his bed at night & hold his hand
  • Smelled: the scent of a fresh rainfall on a Sunday afternoon when it was cool enough to keep the windows open; a new type of coffee I purchased on sale - organic Seattle's Best (very earthy smelling, not the most pleasant but it has a good flavor)
  • Learned: the reason for all my lower back pain (after about 3 yrs. of pain & almost of year of trying to figure it out)
  • Accomplished: replaced two bathroom faucets (w/ Casinodad's help)
