Hope you all had a very merry Christmas! We certainly did. Having a baby around makes Christmas more special. Here's the showstopper dessert I made - Buche' de Noel (Yule Log Cake). I decorated it with peppermint malt balls, sugared rosemary, and sugar 'snow'. And it tasted every bit as good as it looks. Recipe HERE. This may become a yearly tradition.
We put all the Christmas decorations away yesterday and hung a different quilt in the dining room.
When you walk in the front door, you can see whatever quilt I have hanging. I love having a large wall for hanging a big quilt!
I would love to say that Sadie adored her bird Christmas ornament - but she wasn't too interested. She's a bit young to appreciate it, but I know as she grows up she'll love these.
Yes, I got my hair cut SHORT a few weeks before Christmas. I'm still getting used to it, but I think I like it. So easy!!!
For Christmas, Santa brought me a bit of high blood pressure. Not the present I wanted. I had a physical just before the holidays. So I'm monitoring it at home and will see if I need a prescription after the new year. I've started walking almost every day - typically 45 minutes daily, sometimes an hour. Usually Hubby joins me, but if he's on the golf course I've started listening to podcasts while I walk. Currently I'm listening to The Orange Tree - I really like true crime stories.
I love our neighborhood for walking. It's flat and there are so many options for routes.
I've ordered some new athletic shoes (mine are getting old), new insoles (Spenco), and an Apple watch to help me with my health journey. And once the Christmas yummies are gone (SOON!), I'll be eating healthier, too. But I've really enjoyed the Christmas yummies! Haha!
I still haven't been sewing! No real reason. But today I will! I promise!
