Friday Five: Creature Comforts

As a part of this week's RevGalBlogPals Friday Five...

Maybe it's the arrival of crisp October, my favorite month. Or maybe it's the fact that the divine little miss m has been sick all week (and if the baby ain't happy, ain't nobody happy). Whatever the reason, my thoughts have been turning to cozy creature comforts--those activities and spaces that just make a person feel good. And so...

  1. Comfort beverage: Mmmmm.... warm spiced cider.... or hot lemonade
  2. Comfort chair: any couch with the "Mommy blanket" (a fake plush fur blanket made for me during my college days and loved by humans and felines alike)
  3. Comfort read: hard one... but probably Jan Karon's "Mitford" series
  4. Comfort television/DVD/music: soft Celtic, like Moya Brennan or maybe a little rockin' Chris Rice. TV not so much unless it is football season!
  5. Comfort companion(s): beloved bearded spouse, purring cats

Makes me want to take a nap on the couch! But no... studying awaits!

From our home to yours...

Hmmm, football as comfort? :-)

Deb said...

But of course! Crowd noise is white noise... and football is part of "home". Makes no sense, but it's true.

Yes, Jan Karon is comforting. If life was only so simple. Forgot to mention the afghan over in my blog. I have them all over the house.

I never knew anyone else drank hot lemonade! And we're listening to Maire Brennan right now. Wanna come over?

Deb said...

Ah... hot lemonade... and I can spell "moire brennan" - sigh...

last Advent in Germany I discovered hot citrone (hot lemon juice) which, with a spoon of honey became my DOC (drink of choice) at the Christmas Markets!

And I didn't have this paper I'm procrastinating on, I'd be right over...
