Comfort Food

A Cold List

Today, for you, is a cold list.  That is, a list because I have a cold and I'm tired and can't come up with anything else.  NOT because it is cold outside.  Because it's totally not.  A balmy 66 degrees which feels hot compared to the 20 degree weather we had recently.  Anyway, on with the list....1) Paul finished the puzzle without me:...more
