  • A Pleasant Saturday

    Woke up today at 7:15, gathered up the laundry and headed to the basement to start the first load. Sat at the dining room table re-reading 1st Corinthians until breakfast was ready and enjoyed a nice plate of scrambled eggs with cheese, sausage, and lightly buttered rye toast with fresh black coffee. Did a bit more reading before doing the workout.

    Today's aerobic workout went without incident, stretches followed by ab work, followed by a 30 minute session with Mr. Collins providing the background music. My shoulder is feeling better, and I seem to have regained most of my mobility after a good night's sleep, so I am looking forward to Monday's workout to see how it handles the shoulder exercises.

    Got a shower and got dressed and headed out to do some banking and shopping, mostly the little “stocking stuffers” for various family members with a little added for Michelle, Natalie, and Jayden. We did a lot of walking but not a lot of buying, and finally got back to the house around noon.

    Turkey sandwiches for lunch, white meat on low calorie wheat for her, dark meat on Jewish rye for me. The up side of having leftovers from Thanksgiving in the house. Portion control is everything, and even with sending home a ton of food with our family and guests, we still have plenty in the house.

    And of course, Christmas is coming, which means candies and cookies and other confections by the cart load. We have pecan bars from Thanksgiving, and the remains of a pumpkin and a lemon pie in the fridge. Today, she made almond bark clusters and peanut clusters, and there are many more delicacies to come.

    Pulled out “The Long Kiss Goodnight” and kicked back to watch the movie, but I dropped off for about the last 40 minutes. No biggie, I've seen it before, I just happen to be a Samuel Jackson fan. Some of his one-liners in that film are hilarious, especially the one in his interview with Larry King.

    So here I am ending up the day by sharing my day with you. To tell you the truth, I wouldn't have it any other way.

    I hope your day is as blessed as mine.
