Cozy Corner / February 6, 2018

The first week of February is always cold. Even in Texas, we’re in the thirties and I have to say, the temperature is the one number I want to see move upward this month. Not the ugly bathroom scale number. Not the ridiculous prices at the grocery store. And certainly not the eye-popping numbers on my eye glass prescription.
