a sensory weekend

smells ~

husband's Chicken Hyderabadi curry (inspired by his recent trip to Pakistan) *the sea *the last of the frangi-pani's, sprinkled with rain

sights ~

my daughter playing with a long-time friend's baby (who'd've thought we'd grow up and be parents??) *great grey banks of cloud and zero-viz sheets of rain *ponies in transit, Africa-style 

sounds ~

the cure*jack johnson*black-eyed peas*led zeppelin*wyclef*madonna*burning spear*the white stripes*red hot chilli peppers*afro-cuban all-stars*bob marley*inxs*ninja tunes*depache mode*brian ferry ~ all courtesy of my iPod on a 2h drive by myself, a rare occurrence

tastes ~

that damn-fine hyderabadi! *granadilla fridge tart *4 cheese muffins with home-made marmalade *pea soup with chorizo and home-baked bread *dark chocolate enrobed nougat ...

(and yes, they are no. 20)

A very splendid weekend, if a little wintery ...

Ah, lovely way of telling about your weekend! I like your music choices!
PS. I loved The History of Love even more the second time!
