12 in ’12

13 Jan

Twelve comforts  I seem to never refuse:

  • a quiet start to the morning
  • spell check*
  • the calmness of a small pocket of time to read during afternoon nap
  • good warm soup – split pea soup; tomato & carrot; roasted squash soup, french onion; lentil (to just name a few)
  • the feel of hot mocha (with whip) in my hands
  • stopping to watch the feeding birds
  • the pungent, sweet, crisp smell of salt water
  • crossing off items from a/any to-do list
  • sponge candy from wahl’s chocolates in Buffalo
  • sneaking a look at the girls when they are playing together in their own make believe land
  • the chance to put something in the recycling and not the trash
  • warming my always cold feet on joel’s always warm legs when we sit down together in the evenings

* I used spell check five times while typing this post – one of them was for spell check.  oh, the irony is not lost on me.

What are you comforts you never refuse?

    Five Comforts
    * Candy cane green tea from Trader Joe’s
    * Children’s books from a library that is walking distance to my home (The Gruffalo’s Child, A Hundred Dresses)
    * Explosions in the Sky and The Civil Wars in the background
    * Organization in my closet turned office, organization in my bathroom drawer
    * Wegman’s carrying Dr. Pepper and watermelon flavored Jelly Belly’s
