    Question The name that feeling

    Hi everyone

    One of my friends told me there's a phrase for this kind of feeling:
    It's raining with a bad wind outside the house(more of a hurricane or Sth like this), but you're in the house safe and warm and you're drinking a cup of hot tea while you're looking outside. You're feeling secure and happy in a way.

    What's this feeling called, could you help me?

    Thanks

    According to this, just a cup of hot tea doesn't seem to be enough

    I think it might be a good time for some soup and crackers.

    How much soup would you think will be enough to make everybody around feel lethargic?

    That depends. How many people are we talking about?

    The amount of soup I ate for dinner tonight would be enough to make a whole room full of people lethargic!
