Rev Gals and Pals "Reverendmother" says...
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...
So here are my answers
1. Comfort beverage
It depends. Something hot...spiced cider, hot chocolate, coffee with cream...
2. Comfort chair
I wish I had one! I hate our present furniture. I tend to curl up when needing comfort...feet beside me, or at least up on a footstool. I'd love a big cushy chair to do this in.
3. Comfort read
For just relaxing and "escaping" I can't do better than a good historical novel.
4. Comfort television/DVD/music
No such thing as comfort televesion. Maybe an old Disney classic, if I'm curled up with a cup of somthing hot and a blanket. Comfort music--oh yeah! That too depends on the situation. It could be one of the beautiful "Our Daily Bread" instrumental C.D.s. I love them. Or something from "Deep Forest" or "Clannad." Or a worship C.D. Or something old like Nat King Cole or Peter Paul and Mary. New things and new music are good, but not usually comforting. Sometimes something really "up" can be comforting too, in an odd way. I feel better, sometimes, when I put something on the CD player that I can crank up. But my husband doesn't like it, and my mom hates it...so I don't get to do that often.
5. Comfort companion(s)
My sister, if she lived here, and was not an Alzheimer's victim. My sister, as she used to be, was the most comforting, safe person in my world. My husband, depending on the day and the situation. My daughter (same as previous). My friend Pat.
