On My Shelf (Nov 2021)

The winter chill has set in here, a blanket of snow covering the ground. The coziest place to read is snuggled under a throw by the window, listening to the wind howl.

While this may sound serene, it's usually short-lived, as coziness sends an alarm to the rest of my household who begin climbing over me, fighting for their spot to settle in.

(I think we just need a bigger couch).
