This weekend was a whirl of parties and social obligations, shopping and decorating, and Christmas movies and music. I kind of need a weekend to recover from my weekend but it was all great.
I saw a new podiatrist on Friday afternoon. We have decided to treat my plantar fasciitis with stretching exercises and inserts for now. I have a follow up in 3 weeks and if things haven’t improved I may go for the cortisone shot.
There was a party for the COA on Friday night. It was hosted at the home of one of my colleagues and it was a fun night of pizza and snacks, plenty of wine and lots of laughs. It was really nice to see everyone away from work, relaxed and hanging out with their spouses. I made that mincemeat pie for the husband of our host as it’s his favorite and he told me a few weeks ago that he hadn’t had one in ages. I also made a chocolate cream pie and a banana cream pie but there aren’t any photos of those.
On Saturday I went to the Y in the morning. Yes, you heard me right, I went to the Y. I recommitted to my exercise routine last week and I have started working with a new personal trainer. I feel better already. When I got home I treated myself to a delicious soft boiled egg and in the afternoon did some shopping (two gift cards to get and I am done!) and some decorating. It was warm enough to drive the Mustang with the top down and I have to admit it was pretty incongruous to be riding around in a convertible while Baby, It’s Cold Outside played on the radio.
Saturday evening was a party for Dale’s work and that was also fun. I don’t know many of his coworkers but it’s nice to see him with his friends and enjoy a delicious meal and open bar. Woot!
On Sunday morning we had a brief visit with Randy and Mary, who spotted this dandelion in the yard. Yes, a dandelion in December. I love it. In the afternoon there was a Christmas Open House at the library here in our town and we stopped by to see some friends, enjoy some music, and eat a few special treats. We did a little more shopping and then came home to relax and enjoy some quiet time together.
I may be a shiksa but I made some yummy latkes to celebrate the last night of Hannukah. And the Pats won. Playoffs here we come. And also, free coffee today. Hooray!
How was your weekend?
