Tonight was relaxing and semi-productive on the portfolio front. I got lots added but still have more to do. I refuse to feel too bad since I literally sat for three hours working on it non-stop. There’s not much else I could’ve done besides maybe been a pro at this, but it’s really been a learning process!
After this afternoon’s post, I got down to the good stuff: baking, Christmas music, and relaxing. That’s right, ME, relaxing. It’s a miracle, but I think this is what a weekend is supposed to feel like.
I made cupcakes (it’s birthday season):
I also made dinner: salmon on salad with pecans and maple dressing with my favourite squash dish!
Like I said, it was a good night.
I forgot to put these pictures of some funny cards I saw in Wal-Mart today in this afternoon’s post. Enjoy…
Funny! Now it’s time for bed…past time, actually. I’m looking forward to the Santa Shuffle tomorrow and to going home. I’ll remind myself I can finish my work any time and that I WILL get everything done by the deadlines…it’s not worth losing sleep over now.
I just snarfed about 8 of those yummy gingerbread mans. Ed’s trying to tell me I’m fat and lazy and need to do something about it tomorrow, but I am fighting back. It’s normal to have a bedtime snack, and cookies aren’t the devil. Sugar, flour, so what. Maybe eating Christmas cookies with my family is a little bit more special (and it’s these kinds of things where I want to be able to indulge), but it’s not WRONG to have something as a treat just ‘cuz.
Do you send Christmas cards?
What’re you doing with your Friday night? Surely nothing as cool as me…
Do you ever take a day just to do whatever? What’s it look like for you–shopping? baking? sleeping? TV?
