Merry Christmas to all!!!!
Ah!!! The gloriousness of having time off work and time off school!!! Combine that with a tree covered in decorations and lights in my living room, and I've got a wonderful respite from the daily grind. And guess what! I've already crossed a few items off my list...I've completed a puzzle, watched Doctor Who, went to the gym, finished a novel, spent time with Ella, seen my friends, cooked real live actual food, and watched the Big Bang Theory. That's like half my list. I'm good.
|See! I really did work on a puzzle...And I really did finish it!|
I'd like to get my house in order as well. It's not on the list, but it provides an excellent opportunity for reflection. Reflect not just over the past year as we prepare to move into the new one, but reflect over my past life. Am I where I want to be? Am I who I want to be? How far do I still have to go? What are some goals for the new year? What progress shall I try to achieve? Rather, what progress shall I achieve?
buffalo chicken wrap
Breakfast power sandwich...trying a new Panera, one in Qunicy
Enormous brunch! Apple and cheddar omelet, sounds better than it was, with potatoes, fruit and a cheese biscuit
I identified this as the first day since early August that I could honestly say that I had absolutely no obligations to do anything or be anywhere. What glorious day!
coffee cake and fruit
Potato and cheese pierogis, peas and mushrooms, beet salad, cucumbers with sour cream and dill and Russian potato salad...all complete with black currant juice!
Christmas morning breakfast
OK, OK, I admit to having some Russian potato salad too...
spiral ham, long grain and wild rice, meatballs, au gratin potatoes, salad with egg, candied carrots, and broccoli
