How do you find comfort??
For me it may be in the snuggles of one of my furry friends, having my hands in fiber and all the possibilities they hold, in cleaning my surroundings in a outburst of what some could call OCD behavior and yes in baking something.
Thursday was what I call a funk day and one I wished to be rid of. I started by feeding and snuggling the animals but still I felt unease. I came in the house and scrubbed and waxed the wooden floor, bleached the bathrooms, vacuumed until the vacuum cleaner would not work and still no relief. So into the kitchen to bake. I started off by loading the bread machine with sweet coconut milk bread, then made Irish oat cakes and finished it up with sour cream cookies. As the house was now a weird mixture of bleach, wax and baked goodies I looked up to see the clock was telling me it was time to stop.
For dinner it was a hot bowl of soup with a slice of still warm bread. I followed that up with a large cup of hot tea and two cookies. As I sat in bed sipping on the last of the tea before what I hoped would be a restful sleep I wished that I was not such a creature of habit. I wished I could release things quicker and find peace without doing all this external patterns.. I long for a day when I can go to my mediation and find my still center and not have to use a scrub brush and elbow grease. However, I find comfort for now in those patterns of behavior and strive for better thoughts on a funk day.
