Scent Memories

List four scents that remind you of your childhood.

1. Campfires. My parents and I lived in the woods for a while and did a lot of our cooking over a campfire. And, for that matter…

2. Butter and Garlic Sauteing in a Pan. I might be mistaken, but I’m fairly certain my mother started off all of her meals by preparing these two ingredients.

3. Hay and horse manure. Doesn’t sound too glamorous, but it reminds me of some of the farms I used to visit when I was a kid. I absolutely love when I meet people that smell like this. But they have to smell like hay more than crap!

4. Musty basement smell. It reminds me of when I was 10 years old and thought the coolest bedroom in the house was in the basement (my sister had already claimed it for its day-long darkness).

List three sensations that give you delight every morning.

My PUKKA list is:

1. the first sip of coffee. yummmmm…

2. after a shower, drying my face off with a towel

3. seeing my boyfriend come out of our room in the morning, bleary-eyed and adorable (he gets up later than I do, so I have plenty of time to wake up and am alert enough to see how much of a sleep funk he’s in!)


When I look back over this list, I realize that I use three of my senses every morning to enjoy my world: taste, touch, and sight.

What about you? What’s on your PUKKA list?
