~We got the Christmas tree up and decorated with some of the ornaments that we had easy access to.
~Jeff got the outdoor lights up.
~I used Christmas gift bags that I got on clearance last year to wrap this year's gifts in.
~Two loaves of homemade sandwich bread were made.
~Bradley and Isaiah had their Christmas dance recital, and they did so well! It is a joy to watch them dance and their Grandma Tammy is a great teacher!
~Jeff and I went to Winco to pick up a few items. We were floored by steep rise in costs on some items. I scratched some of the "want" items off my list and decided that there was no way I was paying such a high price for them.
~I had picked up a beautiful sweater (Chico's brand) at the thrift store in Montana. It had some stains on it that I thought I could get out, so I had chanced it for $2. I was able to get the stains out with presoaking them with Oxiclean and then washing it.
~I made a salmon loaf for dinner on Sunday along with cilantro lime rice and served canned pears with it. This was a pantry and refrigerator meal and so quick and easy to make.
~It was snowing so it was a perfect day for me to just stay home and work on a few projects around the house.
~I went through all my medications to see what I was due to get refills on and got those called in to Walmart.
~Leftovers for lunch for me and sandwiches for Jeff.
~Dinner was some Zuppa Toscana that I had previously made and frozen. So easy to just heat up! I served some crescent rolls with this.
~I was really good today when we went to Walmart and only got my prescription and a supplement that Jeff needs.
~We had booked our medical appointments back to back and knocked out 3 of them.
~Jeff and I made a pot of decaf coffee and shared it in the evening.
~I had leftovers for lunch since I did not have the energy to make anything else. The side effects of our Pfizer booster shot are taking a toll on me with fatigue, muscles aches and a headache. So far though, there have not been any fever or chills like the second shot had.
~Jeff made us grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner.
~I think I am doing better today than I was yesterday. I still slept until 10 a.m. though after a very restless night. I settled in with a nice cup of coffee and chatted with a friend of mine via Facebook messenger. She is a nurse in Illinois and told me her hospital is nuts right now. :(
~I made some Udon soup for dinner using green onions and Swiss chard from our garden that I had harvested before the freezing weather hit. I also added some shrimp and komoboku from the freezer to it. So good!
~I could not sleep well that night so I got up and made some milk toast using up the homemade bread ends that Jeff does not like for sandwiches.
~I did a bit of decor rearranging "just because".
~Once again, I put Christmas music on via YouTube. I love the calmness it brings to my home on a very cold Winter's day.
~Jeff and I headed into Pullman after he got off work so I could pick up a prescription at Walmart. While in town, we also went to Grocery Outlet to pick up a few things and found organic Romaine lettuce on sale. We picked up a package of that and it will give us at least 6 big salads.
