Yesterday saw me hitting many stores locally, my penultimate grocery store runs prior to Christmas. With the exception of perishables I should be able to feed myself with my pantry, refrigerator, and freezer for at least a month. Maybe I will make a January challenge out of this lack of shopping restraint. ðŸ¤”
I was going to clean my new coffee maker and make a pot of coffee this morning using it, but I may be making a coffee walk with Betsy and Bella instead. We won’t be doing out normal Saturday walk this week because it will be Christmas and she has other plans. The nerve! I blame Bella. ðŸ˜‚
Last night Betsy also broke from the norm by buying dinner for Top Chef night. She purchased a lovely meal cooked by Lance Gummere, former chef at The Shed (RIP) and co-owner of Bantam+Biddy (at least I think he is still involved with that). Turns out Gummere lives near Betsy, very close to Red’s Farm (an inspiration for WLF). Gummere made fried chicken, potato salad, braised red cabbage, and a apple dessert with whipped cream. Ooof, it was delicious.
In preparation for eating too much I made a half-hearted attempt at riding my trainer yesterday afternoon. I put in thirty lackluster minutes before dismounting.
I must have been rather pooped for whatever reason because shortly after returning home from Betsy’s house I passed out hard on the futon.
Tonight, a return to see “A Christmas Carol” at Shakespeare Tavern. My annual trip was interrupted last year due to COVID. Stop COVID!
Hope you are remaining healthy and good, because Santa arrives tomorrow night! ðŸŽ…ðŸ¼
