This week was very relaxing. We’ve had a drastic dip in the weather earlier this week, and now it is turning freezing cold again. This time I have my plants covered – hopefully well. I spent the week primarily sleeping. I’ve been staying up a little later than normal and sleeping late in the morning. Even after getting up, taking my morning meds, doing my sugar check, I’d fall back asleep on the couch most days for about an hour or more. I spent the rest of my time reading, prepping my new bullet journal, and watching a lot of Forensic Files. We went on our 2.5 mile walk every other night.
Christmas was a great day. When I got up, I prepped all the food that would be cooked indoors so that once we were ready to start, we had everything already out and ready. Once The Man woke up, we opened presents. We opened the dogs’ presents first. Once all theirs were opened and we were opening ours, both dogs suddenly were exhausted. Baby flopped over on the couch and went to sleep, and Cera passed out on top of all their new toys on the floor. They could have cared less about what we were opening and what was inside. We tried to coerce them into being interested, and they were not budging. It was almost like it was perfectly orchestrated and trained for comedic effect in a movie.
The Man cooked the ham outside and I cooked everything else in the kitchen. It turned out beautifully and I ate too much. We’ve been eating leftovers all week. Christmas night we went to the movies to see Jumangi and it was sold out. So we saw Downsizing instead. There is NO ending to the movie. It was just an abrupt stop. Like, did they run out of money? Did someone accidentally send the unfinished copy out? Joke’s on us, I guess?
I spent Saturday with my cousin for two of her childrens’ birthdays. They are unlucky to have their birthday within the days after Christmas, and her oldest’s and youngest’s birthdays are three days apart. It was nice spending time with my cousin, who I don’t get to see very often at all. Her older brother died in 2013, leaving behind his high school girlfriend who was a fellow classmate of ours, and his daughter. I get to see them even less and I was glad they were at the party and we could spend some time together.
I have been trying to finish out my Goodreads goal before the year is out – tonight! I still have 2.5 books to go! EEEK! This might be the first year I don’t make it. I did keep reading a couple Christmas books even after Christmas, and I have laid the holiday reads to rest. I finished The Duke and Miss Christmas and Christmas at Seashell Cottage. I am currently working my way through To the Duke, With Love.
