Weekend Wonderings (belated)

A little late this week, but still ..... how 'bout I make it slightly less thought-intensive to make up for it?

Feelin' kinda sloggy, feelin' kinda blah lately, which leads me to ask the question:

What Brings You Comfort?
Comfort foods, clothes, places, people, movies, music, etc.
Can you tell I'm looking for ideas? :-)

You ask, "What Brings You Comfort?
Comfort foods, clothes, places, people, movies, music, etc."

Hmmm, truthfully, it depends on the moment. There's something in each of those categories that can be comforting depending on where I am.

One thing not on the list you noted -- petting my dog. That can be very comforting as can closing the door, curling up under the comforter with a cup of hot chocolate next to me, and surfing the channels.

Another comforting thought can be reflecting on how blessed I am truly. Sometimes when I am "blah" it's easy to overlook that, but when I realize it, it can be a true "pick me up."

Peace to you, Steph!

I agree about the dogs, but I would also say a reliable friend. Over the years many people have filled that role. This week it was my husband.

On the clothing front, I have a cozy pair of flannel pajama pants with a snowman pattern that I really look forward to putting on at the end of the day!

Sleeping, curled up under my feather blanket, with my Nina-Beaner, Super Beagle curled up against my legs.

Yoga. Payday. Writing. Reading. A job well done. Positive feedback from my boss.

"Caving up" back home for a while. Getting organized. Cleaning (but not too often! LOL).

Visiting my Groovy Sisters (next weekend!!!)

Losing myself in an online game on Yahoo or MSN games.

Eating a bowl of cereal. Or pretty much anything bready/starchy/pasta-related. Oh, and chocolate, of course.

Taking off and doing something out of the ordinary. All by myself or with a friend. Being spontaneous.

Sushi. Really. It makes me feel calm - probably because it's not fried or treated like all the other garbage we put into our bodies.

A great Belgian beer, especially Trappist Ales. :)


Long conversations with good friends.

Quiet rooms. Books.

Also music that I listened to when I was a kid. Stuff my mom listened to. Anything that was on the radio when I was a toddler. As you can tell by what I listen to now - mostly same old stuff!

'Chicago III,' anyone?
