Making Sense

Tonight in my house,
I hear... the rattle of the washing machine spinning my whites, the quiet turning of pages as Abby reads books in the dark of her room instead of sleeping, the hum of our furnace kick in, and the deep breaths from Skylar's sleeping snout on the couch next to me.
I see ... the show "Suburgatory" on mute on my TV while I wait for Modern Family to come on, my yoga mat spread out on the floor reminding me that I cannot ascent the stairs for bed until I've done my daily asanas, the blue glow of our Christmas lights through my front door window, and my feet in green wooly socks raised up high in the recliner.
I feel ... warm with all this extra blood and energy coursing through my veins, relieved with the weight taken off of my legs, the ease of running fingers through my perfectly blown-out hair after getting it cut and dried this afternoon, and full after eating second dinner.
I smell ... vinegar after wiping down my kitchen counters, my honey lip balm, and the lingering smell of ground beef after making tacos for dinner.
I taste ... apple juice after drinking a giant glass, the carnuba wax on my lips from my lip gloss.
It's a quiet night with the husband out at broom ball, I just returned from work at the boom store, and Abby is supposed to be asleep, but she just isn't tired yet!
