i'm not quite sure why, but quite frequently we smell the remnants of a fire burning. the outdoor kitchen smelling fire that is often smelled overseas. maybe the little hispanic community two streets over from my parents. normally we smell it early in the morning or in the evening, but today, in the middle of the day, the breeze brings us the scent my heart loves... the smell of africa! eli knows that it melts my heart for him to remind me that it smells like A F R I C A. i guess it being cinco de mayo the ladies are preparing a fiesta! well whatever the reason, i love having my senses exhilarated.
