#2 scents

#3 visuals

- flowers by the computer - today it is wild flowers, and small rosebuds, and geranium

#4 mindless entertainment at lunchtime

this week it is Dollhouse (dumb baby show-but useful not to watch anything really engaging at lunchtime to resist temptation to take rest of the afternoon off)

#5 escapist entertainment when i knock off

the past 2 weeks it has been Season 2 of Terminator - the Sarah Connor Chronicles
i am devastated the series has finished, and probably won't be renewed
am d/ling the Terminator Trilogy as a small comfort
