Well it's the day after, December 26 so HAPPY BOXING DAY to those who celebrate/observe the day.
On the 24th we had a nice dinner with 3 of our friends. My friend Maria brought home made spring rolls, YUM! I made a beef tenderloin roast that I saw on the Food Network, I made roasted potatoes and carrots, lemon-Dill green beans that turned out yucky, mashed butternut squash that in my opinion was very bitter, ginger peach jello cups that were good, canned (yuck) cranberry sauce, our friend brought a sweet and sour German cabbage that was good and chopped apples and pineapple with a fondue chocolate dip, then my friend Maria brought her home made spring rolls YUM! I made pecan pie that was more like pecan soup and a cherry pie (from the can) The Gravy didn't turn out at all and I forgot the whipped cream for the pies. I felt dinner was yucky, everyone else said it was good. YES, I did use very careful portion control.
We watched Christmas movies and watched the Santa Tracker on the computer.
Dec. 25 was just another day here. 90+ F, sunny and not a cloud or snowflake in the sky. DH went to work since Christmas is forbidden and against the law and Saturday is the start of the work week. I watched the Santa tracker on DH's computer and cleaned up. I also had to wrap DH's presents still. Santa had already been here when I woke up.
DH got home early from work but not because they were nice and let hime off early, they just finished a job in another department.
I got a much needed laptop sleeve for when I travel, a aluminum water bottle instead of using a plastic milk bottle and 3 yummy Body Shop burning scents. DH was pleased with his calendar I made him. I took pictures of his Harley and made them into a calendar using a plain monthly calendar that I bought and pasted the pictures in it.
We pretty much vegged out and watched Christmas movies and ate left over spring rolls that were pretty good!
So today, December 26 I got out and did 3 laps of walking on the compound without wheezing too bad or coughing. Still at a slower pace though.
Hope you all had a GREAT Christmas.
