(almost) Wordless Wednesday: Comfort

Biscuit Finds Comfort

Biscuit Finds Comfort

Recently, the Hubs and I were host to a temporary house guest, Biscuit the Happy Hound. Though a very gentle pup and quite the old man (he’s 13), he was a bit restless in his new surroundings until he happened upon his familiar teddy bear from home.

After he found it, it wasn’t long before he was snuggled in for a long nap in his temporary home away from home.

Biscuit reminds me of myself.

I love to travel, but it takes me a while to settle in. Since I was a kid, I would always have to “piddle or putz around” for most of the night. I have this ritual of setting up house in my hotel room or corner of the hostel, before I am able to feel relaxed enough to sleep there.

I know it’s silly, but I always wake up in the middle of the night and when I do, I like to see my things living happily in the space.

What about you? Any travel rituals? Or do you bring along your own comfort token like Biscuit

    Haha so cute! 🙂
    Hm, that’s a good question about travel rituals. Don’t know that I have any. Although I like to have my iPod with me — that’s a comfort token.

    Btw, I just recently found out that my posts may not be showing up in my subscribers’ WordPress Readers if they had subscribed before I changed my domain name (which I did 3 weeks ago). So I am now having to ask every subscriber before that time if they could kindly unsubscribe & resubscribe to my blog, by just unclicking and clicking on the “Following” button at the top of my page

    Thank you so much and sorry for the inconvenience!!! 🙂

    An ipod most assuredly qualifies! Thanks for the heads up about your posts. I hadn’t been getting them so I unfollowed then refollwed. Hope that does the trick!

    Along with clothing essentials, as long as I have my laptop (music and writing) and essential oils, I’m good. I use the oils to clear the space,disinfect and add great aroma and vibes.

    Oooo. Good travel juju. I love it! Come to think of it. I have stayed in more than one hotel room that could have benefited from a good smudgin’!!! I just may keep that in mind on my next trip.
