I don’t know what is up with the weather gods, but it has been so cold this past week! It’s been so cold that my dog has been hiding under his bed unless I turn my little heater on in my room. But anyways, it has been a busy week here at Pecuniarities. I’ll have some exciting news soon on a couple of new projects I’ve started working on over the weekend. More on that soon.
