January needs a few bright spots. Perhaps it’s new clothing received at Christmas. Red candles can add a dash of color and a cozy scent to a room. And my personal favorite — comfort food. Chili? Soup? Mashed potatoes beside grilled meat?
Let the welcoming committee greet you, invite you to come inside to warm your toes and nose and enjoy one or more winter pleasure.
