Wow!  This topic is going to expose all my self-indulgent tendencies. But here goes.

Comfort for me is a short break in the day’s routine when I can indulge myself for a little while in the following ways:

Curling up in my comfy reading chair with one cat on one armrest and the other curled up on the ottaman at my feet.

Turning on some music by a favorite artist. Today’s choice is Own the Night by Lady Antebellum.











Opening my Kindle to a book from a favorite writer. Today’s choice is Garden Spells by Sara Addison Allen.












Eating a few spoonfuls of a rare culinary indulgence. Today’s choice is Blue Bell’s Pistachio Almond ice cream.


Okay I’m ready to get back to writing now.

  1. Wow, will you look at that skirt!

    • I know. She talked about the skirt in one of their facebook comments. Evidently it swept the beach pretty effictively.
