|Greatest Comforts (chocolate free version)|
The first thing that came to mind was knitting. I love knitting very complicated patterns and my cat inevitably comes into the room and trues to snag a ball away from me. I love the feel of the yarn and how the knitting patterns stimulate the left side of the brain. The knitting gives me an excuse to sit in front of the tv or keep my husband company while he listens to records. I also knit when my kids are doing homework or when I am waiting for them to come out of an activity.
Next on my comfort list is a visit to an art museum. I love doing this the most when I have someone to share it with me. My husband always jokes that my blood pressure drops after a good visit to a museum. Luckily I live a 30 minute train ride from New York City, which in my opinion is the art capital of the world. To make the trip even more satisfying, I will knit on the train or read a craft magazine -- like Vogue Knitting, Cloth, Paper Scissors or Stampington. Pure Bliss!

Although I like to think of myself as an intellectual, I do have a weakness for reality tv. I absolutely adore Project Runway because I love watching the creative process. However, I also love Dance Moms...for no other reason than it is fun to watch a fat woman run a successful dance troop. No seriously, the kids are really cute and fun to watch their routines. In the past I have gone through phases of watching other reality tv shows... too embarrassing to list here. oh heck-- you can guess. Millionaire Matchmaker, Housewives of Whatever, etc, etc

Which brings me to my final comfort... one I have little control over.. but nothing makes me happier than getting the "Etsy transaction" email in my inbox. I just LOVE selling my artwork. Wrapping it up all pretty and sending art out into the world is my greatest comfort.
