Things That Bring Comfort

So as I was catching up on my blog reading this weekend (I love it when I have time to do that!), I ran across this amazing post on Moorea Seal's blog about her comfort things. Not necessarily her favorite things, but the things that give her comfort. I loved the idea, so thought I'd write out a comfort list of my own.

Here goes... These are the things that bring comfort to me.



Activities:

Soaking in a hot bath.
Cuddling in bed with my cat.
Rearranging my bedroom.
Jumping in the surf of the ocean.
Watching a Survivor season premiere.
Reading a good book.
Sitting in a movie theatre by myself.
Photographing flowers in a park.
Rain, foggy, spooky days.
Being awake in the middle of the night when no one else is.
Watching a baseball game in the stadium.





Food:

Krispy Kreme donuts.
BBQ'd hot-dogs, with potato salad and watermelon... eaten outside in a park with family and friends.
Rice w/ brown sugar and raisins.
Cheetos.
Golden Grahams.
Red and orange bell peppers.
Ripe strawberries... especially with shortcake and whipped cream.
Homemade pumpkin pie... with no whipped cream.
Fresh salsa.
Dill pickles, fresh and crispy.
Buttered theatre popcorn.





Drink:

Coffee.
Dr. Pepper.
Homemade lemonade.
Sun-brewed tea in the summertime.
Strawberry milkshakes from Burgerville.
Orange-pineapple juice.
Hot chocolate and marshmallows when it's cold outside.
Green tea.





Reading:

Proverbs 3:5-6
The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle
Harry Potter series
Any blogs that I'm reading on my laptop while alone in my own little world at a coffee shop.





Movies:

Dirty Dancing (I love this movie! It always makes me feel calm and safe from opening credits all the way to closing credits).
Signs (I love being scared in a safe, spooky way).
Titanic
The Notebook
Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken (my all-time favorite!) 





Listening:

Hey There, Delilah {by Plain White T's}
Crazy {by Gnarls Barkley}
Set Fire to the Third Bar {by Snow Patrol}
Tears and Rain {by James Blunt}
Bad Day {by Daniel Powter}
pretty much any album by {Muse} or {U2}
 

(I'm realizing a lot of my comfort songs are mellow, minor-key sorts of sounds. There's just something comforting about a haunting melody, don't you think?)





T.V. Shows:

The X-Files.
Gilmore Girls.
The Brady Bunch.
Looney Tunes cartoons.
Felicity.
Grey's Anatomy.
Chuck.
Survivor.
