{May 4, 2015}   A very sensative sense of…

Smell. This is a good thing and a bad thing.

I don’t know if I’ve ever told you, but I am a wee bit sensitive to smells. Ok, we both know I’m lying, I am super sensitive to smells. Pook.

Now, like I said, this is a good and bad thing. Let’s talk about the bad first…cigarettes hit me hard and it can be on clothing, remnants of a lit cigarette as I walk by, as much as I enjoy being around animals, but…stinky dog smell in a small space, cat pee, even the tiniest bit, coffee, especially if someone is drinking it near me and the cup gets close, cooking onions, alchohol, bad breath, colognes, lotions, so much more…a lot of these things are subtle and then there is being vegan…fish is overpowering, meats get to me and can send me out of a room. I am over sensitive and I loathe it! I try to hide it, but sometimes it just doesn’t work and I feel terrible about that. So I apologize to any friends and family I have offended.

Now, I don’t want to be the total wicked, complaining nose…let’s talk about the good.

The smell of fresh cut grass, the ocean, warm fresh towels, the wind when the top is down on the car, suede, yes, I know, totally contradictory for a vegan, but oh my goodness…I love walking by Wilson’s leather! Babies, my nieces when they get out of the bath, my grandkids, my nieces hands after they wash them, a new box of crayons, an unfinished canvas, the air when it’s going to snow, the rain, the air after a rain storm, puppy breath! my cats after they get a bath or when they’re clean and want to snuggle, a freshly bathed dog, Spring, Fall, flowers [sunflowers, daisies, roses, need I go on?], fresh baked bread, butter, especially when you’re cooking with it, popcorn, crisp apples, fresh cut wood, new car, beach, the ocean, yes I know I said that already! I could go on, but I’m going to end here hoping to have redeemed myself.

So…what do you say, we drop the top on the car, pick up some suede shoes, sunflowers and crisp apples and head to the beach!
