Pocket Comforts

“But Piglet is so small that he slips into a pocket, where it is very comfortable to feel him when you are not quite sure whether twice seven is twelve or twenty-two.”—A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
Just a few small things that make me feel comfortable and comforted after another bout of dental surgery this morning:
  • decaf Sumatra, smooth and strong
  • creamy oatmeal with St. Dalfour’s peach preserves (an old French recipe, they say)
  • a shapely pine tree wet with rain
  • blue fleece sweat pants
  • three “cozies” set in the British countryside
  • a pile of DVDs, including The Return of the Native, The Princess Bride, Kingdom, Guess Who’s Killing the Great Chefs of Europe, and some favorite Poirots
  • the electric blanket turned up to “popcorn,” as my mother would have said
  • another day off work
  • Snoopy (and also, since I am reminded, “Hang on Sloopy”)
  • these purple flowers
  • pink and black striped kneesocks
