Scents that take you back
Good morning! I hope you are having a wonderful, sunshiny week.
Yesterday the sun came out, so naturally Bam & I had to soak it all in. It doesn’t come out as much as we’re used to so we enjoy it when it does.
I did actually do a little work too. I love planning and organization but the move cramped my style a bit, so I’m playing catch up. Thank you so much for hanging in there with me during the transition.
Bam & I decided to check out the fruit trees in the 2nd backyard. Okay well one of us only cared about hunting for gerbils and sniffing cactus. We have an acre to explore so there are lot’s of adventures to be had.
I saw several fruit trees: oranges, lemons, apricots, apples, tangerines & nectarines.
I’m not sure what these little guys are. Figs? Does anyone know?
And these too? Apples or pears?
Then I decided to hit up the grocery store for dinner, Nob Hill which we call snob hill since we are 4.
I took the back roads through wide open spaces and farmland with big beautiful mountains in the background. I’ll never forget that drive today. I felt so free…free as I’ll ever be…
I had the top down to take it all in. My hair blowing in the wind, not a care in the world for the first time in a very loooong time.
I caught a whiff of peppers that instantly took me back to my grandma’s old house that was torn down years ago. I practically grew up there and spent countless hours playing in her yard. I can’t believe it was the same exact scent I remembered as a kid from her house. Part of me misses those days, even when I was board.
Be still my country loving heart.
Gosh now I miss home and grandma even more. It’s a good thing we live even closer now.
I am also digging these coastal trees. I love how they grow in the direction the wind blows.
What scent(s) remind you of something or someone?
City, country, coastal, mountains-pick one!
A nice warm, sunny beach.
What’s the first thing you do when you get home?
