Five Senses Monday

Hello, friends. I hope each of you had a wonderful holiday and long weekend with friends and family. Did you lounge? Did you shop ’til you dropped? Did you go away?

I did do lounging. I didn’t really shop. But I did get away for a night in Reno. Friends and I boarded the California Zephyr train in Sacramento, and traveled through some of the most beautiful scenery in California. I’ll share more about this trip tomorrow, but I just wanted to stop in and say hello and welcome you back to reality after a long weekend.

And now, it’s time for Five Senses Friday, where I reflect on the last few days through the five senses. Play along in the comments or on your own blog.

Rusted golden leaves zooming past my window on the train. White snow on the tracks. All the lights twinkling on a lively street in Reno.

Celebratory train-ride mimosas. Two words: casino buffet.

Dueling pianists singing and playing our favorites, and making us laugh.

Blessed to live in such a beautiful state. The weight of a $140,000 diamond on my finger at a Reno pawn shop (I liked the funkier costume jewelry more).

That welcomed aroma of hot coffee after a very long and fun day and night.
