A cup of tea, earl grey, hot. Prayerful knitting. Flannel. Crocheted blankets. Red wine, cabernet. Reading a good book on the couch by the window. Ricotta pancakes. External validation. Self validation. Kitty snuggles and purrs. Acoustic music. Boyfriend bear hugs. Journaling. Fate. Bird song. Live plants and flowers. Ceiling fans. The color blue.
