Chris and I had a lovely dinner tonight—Ham, Corn Pudding, Parmesan-Roasted Broccoli, Smoky Cheddar Loaf, and for dessert, Egg Nog Tres Leches Cake.. I wanted to make a fancy dinner before we exchanged our gifts (we are heading out of town soon and didn’t want to bring them with).
I got some neat stuff, but I think it’s too early to share Christmas presents I’ll share later! Just wanted to say the menu was a great success, and I received some excellent gifts.
I also had a tough workout with Mike—I had to use the gym’s new Stairclimber machine tonight. That was super tough! Probably doing a workout today after my 8.5 or so mile run yesterday (soon to be much more precise in measurement—hint of a Christmas gift I may have received) wasn’t the best idea, but with traveling up ahead, you do what you can.
Chris and I did a tad bit of Christmas shopping today. Ordinarily I hate crowds, and today was definitely crowded. I decided to tell myself it was fine—it WOULD be crowded, and I would simply accept that as a fact. That seemed to help me keep from getting annoyed.
I’m enjoying my Christmas vacation now—I have two whole weeks to relax and not teach violin. I’m sure when I return I shall be well rested and ready to face the students again.
HBBC: 7 f/v: 1 point, 1 mile walk: 1 point, Workout with Mike: 5 points (way tougher than somedays and more high impact), total: 7 points
