 simple pleasures ..

knob creek kentucky straight bourbon whiskey ..
with some local honey,  some fresh lime ..
some hot, hot water ..

drink 2 cups of that concoction and you will feel much better while having a miserable cold..
yeah ..
and then move on to drink it straight ..
no worries .. i quick drinking it straight after a couple of swigs .. i'm a lightweight .. 

asking the 17 year old to put on some tunes while I sip my hot toddy and clean the kitchen.  oldest son's musical choice? of his favorite bands. 

-watching said 17 year old scan his artwork and download the images onto his myspace account.
he's a sculptor, jewelry maker and  has recently taught himself to make paper.  he has a studio downstairs in the basement.  oh, and he also knows how to make javelins and atlatls .. and use them ..      soooo, we are well defended here in the foam home ..  :

noticing that the 11 year old is hogging the couch when you want to hog it yourself.  you choose not to kick him off because he is there with his sketchpad and paper happily doodling away while listening to the tunes of pink floyd ..
before that he had emptied the dishwasher and finished reading a book..

getting pleasantly sleepy (could it be the hot toddies?) right now ..
realizing i will have the whooooole bed all to myself .... :)
i've had it to myself most of the week.

realizing that tomorrow is friday and i get to share the connubial bed again ...

.... :) :)

g'night ..

Ah, simple pleasures indeed. Often the best.

SJ said...

Rolf said...

Ah Pink Floyd!
He has a very good taste in music.

Aggie said...

Glad the next gen is still proving to have good taste musically while the older gen has excellent taste in cold remedies. Hope the cold is gone soon and a full recovery made.

foam said...


nope ..
but i'm descended from bar and pub owners on my german side..
and, you thought my long stick was just a plain old stick, eh? it's a javelin ...
you are lucky i haven't used the atlatl yet.
oh, and i reckon you can sleep in the garage ..

t?//. oops ..
anyways ..
in this case it's
since i made the hot toddies with a bourbon..

yes, he does ..

yeah, my sons have good taste in music.
and am i ever glad ..
and, yep ..
my motto is ..
when miserable ..
drink the finest ..

Little Lamb said...

You sound like a happy family. I like that.

dd said...

sorry to hear you've been sick but it sounds like your boys are taking care of you. Happy November.

ANNA-LYS said...

dianne said...

I hope you feel better soon and what a lovely family you are. :) ♥

/t. said...

HLiza said...

Ah get to share the bed again..then no need for the drink anymore (or you'll need it more?). You're a bunch of artistic people in that!

Merelyme said...

love pink floyd...great choice in music. never had a hot it good?

foam said...

little lamb,
i'd say we are mostly a happy family.

dd ...
thanks. and the nice thing is that they can take care of themselves for the most part.

anna-lys ..
momentarily yes .. :)

yep, it was an idyllic moment. but believe you me ..
we have plenty of moments that are not quite so idyllic .. :)

... and rum .. ;)

hliza ..
i'll probably need much more ..
you know .. the snoring ..

i enjoyed the hot toddy. there are various recipes out there. some with tea which i don't really like that much i think..

i'll probably have another one later tonight.

/t. said...

for the great
poem over at mo'po

foam said...

you are welcome .. ;)

ANNA-LYS said...

Are You better?

foam said...

much better than yesterday!
thanks for asking ..

Lady Prism said...

ooooooooooooooo.....will try that drink...You are a wise wise woman!

Your description of your kids is so heartwarming :)

SJ said...

Sure I will sleep in the garage if I can find some flaxen haired Swedish women with big boobs for company.

Indigo said...

Indigo Incarnates

Pink Floyd is awesome :)

I never was much into whisky, but I sure do love a good martini made with Grey Goose vodka.

foam said...

prism ..
you just might like the drink .. :)
my boys were being momentarily good .. :)
(naaah .. i'm actually lucky .. they are pretty good boys all the time)

sj ....
it looks like you'll never be sleeping in our garage then. i guess i can finally get rid of the kingsized bed that is hogging half the garage ..
and, yes, i do actually have a kingsized bed in the garage ..

hey .. my first choice of booze is always a good vodka. but for hot boozy drinks nothing beats a good bourbon ..

Bobby said...

Well, it don't get much better than that, does it? You have passed your gifts on.

Did I miss it: does that drink have a name? That sounds good. I like Jim Beam though.

ANNA-LYS said...

Thank YOU very much indeed for Your comment ... blushing

<3 <3 <3

I have no idea you were so ... "domesticated".

This completely shifts my paradigm.

I'll need some time to reflect ...

foam said...

pug ..
bollocks!! domesticated indeed....
tsk ..
well, anyway, the veneer of domesticity runs rather thin..
and at least i don't wear a collar ... ;)
but anyways ......
ya gots to watch out for those paradigms ...
they can be rather shifty..or shiftless ..
you pick.

catana-lys ...
you gave me a good post to reflect on ... :)

i call the drink a hot toddy ..
there are different recipes online..
i don't use tea which i think works better when using a bourbon to make it.

I don't know if you ever go back and read through these old comment sections for late additions or not.

But I just want to let you know that I looked up the word "connubial" in the dictionary, and to my horror it has NOTHING to do with car wax.
