What are things that you find comforting?

My top 3 would be:

a warm sweater (because I hate to be cold)

being out in nature

coming home

Coffee in the morning when no one is up.

Going outside in the sunshine on a bright day.

Hugs from my girls and my momma.

Curling up in bed with a good book or an old show.

A warm bubble bath

Top of the list is chocolate.
I have a throw blanket that is so soft. I love snuggling up under it and watching tv.
My gas fireplace on a rainy day/night.
Putting on leggings and a long sweater as soon as I get home.
A cup of tea warming my hands.

Cuddling with my new puppy
Being outdoors in my recently landscaped backyard
Tea and a home baked treat that involves chocolate
Going for a walk in my neighborhood
Having my cat sleep on my bed in wintertime
Chatting with a dear friend
Reading a good book
Reading PT

PS. Right now I’m reading Mad at the World, an excellent bio of John Steinbeck.
I highly recommend it!

Kitty in my lap

Reading a good book, especially on my front porch during warmer weather

The feeling my house has in the morning when my adult kids are visiting

My polar fleece sheets in the winter ( like sleeping on a pile of bunnies! )

The beach in Maine where my mom lives

Hugs from my kids

In reading this, I feel like we're rewriting "My Favorite Things" from Sound of Music.

My most comforting things?
-time with my sisters
-time with my DH-often it's the so-called little things
-my snuggly kitties purring and letting me massage them and tell them they're handsome
-smells: cabbage cooking, lavender, Murphy's oil soap
-a really great, rejuvenating nap
-a good cry once in a while

1. clean all cotton sheets that are worn and soft. I have two.

2. napping on a cold and rainy day

3. nature...getting out in it and viewing it. I love the mountains and the ocean, fields and farmlands, pine forests and deciduous forests, bogs and marshland, creeks, rills, and rivers. Huge glacier erradic boulders, rock walls, bald eagles, moose, deer, foxes. Love it all.

4. good homemade soup
