FD262 – Waking in California | Daily Prompt: Feed Your Senses

FD262 – Waking in California | Daily Prompt: Feed Your Senses

Every now and then I like to take on a challenge from The Daily Post.  The topic is feed your senses.  This one seem particularly interesting.  I was still in sunny California for my cousin’s graduation from San Diego University.  So Cool!  I don’t have a degree, but I wish I did.  Sometimes.  :)  I haven’t written anything about my journey to California, so here is a tidbit.

Any who back to the challenge……… which was……

Daily Prompt: Feed Your Senses

by michelle w. on May 18, 2013

Write down the first sight, sound, smell, and sensation you experienced on waking up today. Pick the one you’re most drawn to, and write. (For a bigger challenge, pick the one you’re leastdrawn to.)

Photographers, show us one of the five senses — bonus points for depicting a smell!


Feed Your Senses

How many people wake up to the computer.

It is not unusual for me to wake up to the sight of my computer screen.  I don’t do it as much as I use to, but I still sleep with my computer in the bed sometimes.  I really do it a lot when I’m visiting people.  That is really the only time I get a chance to go on line.  That is my alone time and I don’t have to be worried about being rude.

Feed Your Senses

Can you smell the sea water?

Can you smell the sea water when you look at the picture?  Well me either.  :)  We are a bit inland, but the air is pretty smog free here. There are always nice breezes and the air is nice and crisp in the morning.

Last, but not least is the sounds.  I love the sound of wind chimes and that’s what I hear in the mornings hear in sunny California.  It has such a smooth and peaceful sound.  I could meditate with wind chimes. They are hanging out back on the party patio. Feed your senses is such a good topic.

That gives you a little taste of my recent trip, but I will be posting more for sure.

Feed Your Senses Questions:

What do you sense when you wake up in the morning?

Do you need some coffee first to figure that out? :)

FD251- Zippy Doo Da….1st Stop Washington DC & DCLofty Review

DC Lofty Review coming up…..But first… Some would say home is where you hang your hat and that has been true for many years for me.  While working overseas, I was able to go on some fantastic trips and meet some amazing people.  Now I’m back in the Good Ole USA.  I love being aContinue Reading

FD250 – I Luv My Mexicans..Really I do

Yes that’s right I love my Mexicans.  But huh?…… You know hand sanitizer really takes on that lava lamp effect if you hold pretty lights behind it.  Well I think I was high on the fact that I was on my way home.  I rally don’t plan on looking back.  It really was time forContinue Reading

FD 249 – Panties are So Overrated!

Made Ya Look! Ha Ha…No panties here, but there is a story. Ok, if any of you are watching me on Facebook you will see that the time has finally come.  I have resigned my position here in Kabul, Afghanistan.  Yeah for me!   This job was just getting too crazy.   I was expectedContinue Reading

FD248 – Daily Prompt | Places… Post Excerpts & Life Excerpts…Anywhere but Here!

I have been on the hunt to make a change to the landing/home page.  I wanted it to have post excerpts of each post and not show the whole post.  I also wanted it to show an image as well.  I love posting pictures on LizForADay.  I also love going to blogs that post lotsContinue Reading

FD233 – Long Road Home Part Tio & Silence

I’m still here.  Long Road Home is truly that.  It has been quite a few days since posted.  That’s because I have been sick, busy, running and enjoy life at home.  I miss blogging, but I just needed a short break to recharge my brain. My original plan was to find some place to hangContinue Reading

FD232 – The Long Road Home & Rolling with the Punches

Well today started off as a normal travel day from Afghanistan (Body Search Recap) with a gazillion body searches & weird woman staring me down.  You would have thought they were comparing me to a wanted poster that said “Dead or Alive One Million Dollars”.  You know what I did…. I rolled with the punchesContinue Reading

FD228 – Travel Planning Goals are a Must

NUJA5BN9YR2Q I was doing some travel planning and Miguel says “Man it looks like you have your whole trip planned out”.  Well I’m still working on it.  I find it good to have some travel planning goals in place before I go, but I don’t go crazy if I don’t get to do something.  ItContinue Reading

An Orlando Vacation is something most families save their whole lives for.  I live there so I believe most of the tourist stuff is overrate.  Don’t get me wrong, I love living in Florida and it’s that time for me again. VACATION TIME!  Yeahhhhhhhh! I know you all are saying, dang, you just got backContinue Reading
