5 Senses

Day six of the 31-day blog challenge, and I’m still here! Small victories.

My five senses right now…

Sight: Watching Mad Men

Hearing: See above

Taste: Iced tea

Smell: the faint smell of campfire that’s lingering in my hair from sitting fireside last night. No, I did not wash my hair today. I didn’t do much of anything, actually. Lazy Sunday for the win!

Feel: keyboard keys, the laminate floor, my leather chair. Also, feeling tired. Almost bedtime for me.

After I try to figure out what exactly Megan Draper is up to.

Getting Day 5 out of the way early, there’s Cinco de Mayo party prep to do!

Ten songs I’m (somewhat shamelessly) loving tight now, in no particular order, from the “Recently Played” list on my iPhone:

1. Christina Perri, Jar of Hearts

2. The Wanted – Glad You Came

3. Adele – I’ll Be Waiting

4. Kanye West – Love Lockdown

5. Bruno Mars – Runaway Baby

6. The White Stripes – Seven Nation Army

7. The Rolling Stones – Miss Amanda Jones

8. How You Like Me Now – The Heavy

9. Somebody That I Used to Know – Gotye feat. Kimbra (Yes, I know, EVERYONE loves [or hates] this song, whatever.)

10. Somewhere Only We Know – Keane (This is actually one of my very favorite songs, and I listen to it a few times a week.)

Apologies for the link-heavy post, I have absolutely no music on my little netbook.

What are some of your favorite songs right now? Join in!

A Daily Blogging Challenge? What could POSSIBLY go wrong?!

Y’know, besides me giving up three days in. But let’s think positively, shall we?

I found Boy oh Boy via Pinterest and thought her daily blogging challenge sounded like fun, and an easy way for me to get writing daily.

Hopefully. Here goes nothing.

Day 1: Introduction & Recent Photo:

Hi! For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Jenn, 36 years old, single, no kids. I live in a region of Eastern Pennsylvania called the Lehigh Valley, in the city of Allentown (yes, just like the Billy Joel song). I’m a medical imager (mostly MRI and Cat Scan) that’s been working in health care for the past twelve years. I started blogging years ago on Yahoo as a way to vent/connect with friends. It’s fallen by the wayside more often than not the past few years but I do still enjoy sharing recipes and stories with friends, when I make time to write.

I enjoy spending time with friends and family, going to the movies, relaxing on the couch, reading, home improvement and repairs, and I love baking, cooking, and throwing dinner parties.

Here’s a recent picture of me:¬†¬†Totally cute, right?

Ok, that’s Day One, just under the wire. Come back tomorrow for day 2! Or better yet, play along at Boy oh Boy!
