Creature Comforts

Day 3

My friend, K, said she'd like to read a favorite things post, so....


drumroll, please

Five Favorites for Friday

In yesterday's post, I mentioned being grateful to live in a time with so many creature comforts, so I thought I'd share five of my favorite creature comforts with you!
  1. Contact Lenses. They can be a HUGE pain what with all the care and maintenance, but they also make my life so. much. easier. I can see better and don't have to worry about pushing up my glasses or getting all sweaty underneath my glasses or dropping/stepping on/breaking my glasses. Of course, I'm grateful for glasses as well. They make great back-ups and allow me to rest my eyes from time to time.
  2. Climate Control. Be it heat or air conditioning, I'm ultimately grateful for it. I get cold super easy, so I often complain about A/C, but there are definitely times when I appreciate it greatly. Now, if summer will just hurry up already!
  3. Smartphones. Sure, these little buggers can be addicting, and maybe I shouldn't spend as much time on mine, but it definitely is nice to always have a way to contact someone in a variety of ways (phone, text, IM, email, blog, etc) or research something or whatever else to pass the time.
  4. Social Media / Networking. I'll admit it. I'm terribly nosy. And probably a bit of a gossip. *shrug* I just like to keep up-to-date on the people I care about but don't have the chance to see very often. Enter email, Facebook, blogging, etc. Now I can spy on keep up with old friends, new friends, family, news, etc, etc, etc.
  5. Indoor plumbing. I'm not just talking about the toilet, either. Though with as many times as I have to pee in a day, I sure am glad I don't have to slog myself outside every. single. time! Imagine life without a bathtub or shower. I definitely enjoy long, hot showers. Or a washing machine. Doing laundry on washboards? Um. No, thank youOr kitchen sink. Or dishwasher, for those lucky ducks who have one. I have a hard enough time doing the dishes. They'd never get done if I had to lug buckets of water into the house first!
What about you? What are your favorite creature comforts?

  1. I'm with you on #'s 2, 4, and 5! I've often thought that I would have made a really wimpy pioneer. :)

  2. @Reuben, LOL. Actually, I am not. Should I be?

    @Lara, Ah, yes! I would have been such a wimpy pioneer, too.

  3. Good list. I don't wear contacts (or glasses), but I do sometimes stop and think what life would be like without the rest of it! I certainly take it for granted. Although my phone is only half smart :)

  4. TNM, Thanks for commenting! It's easy to take for granted the things we use everyday. :)
