The Holidaze

Saturday: (12/21) We started our day as usual for a Saturday morning with our weekly grocery shopping run. I spent a little time outside pruning the front flower bed geraniums. They suffered from the recent freezes as they do every year.  I also burned some of the junk wood from the fence job in San Jose. Nice to have a burn day after having one of the longest series of no burn days in the area. As I watched the campfire I tinkered with the computer in the backyard. Dawn had her Tai Chi class in the morning and was busy doing laundry. Leftover chorizo soup for breakfast. Corned beef hash and eggs for dinner.

Sunday: (12/22) Today was a today relaxation day with nothing done. Dawn prepared quinoa flake in apple cider as hot cereal for breakfast. I added an English muffin with peanut butter to mine. Cheese, ham and bread for lunch. Lou made spaghetti with clam sauce and broccoli for dinner.

Monday: (12/23) A light breakfast of granola. Our task today was to do some Christmas shopping and to meet Ernie for lunch at the Black Bear Diner in Milpitas, where we were shopping. Courtney joined us for lunch. I couldn’t resist the Chicken fried steak breakfast, as Ernie couldn’t as well. Lou and Dawn managed to share a steak. After lunch we managed to find what we were looking for at the Great Mall. The rest of the day was just relaxing at home, recovering for the shopping crowds. Baked potatoes for dinner.

Tuesday: (12/24) A do nothing day at home except for a short run out to lunch and to pick up a few things at Sprout’s Market. Corned beef hash and eggs for breakfast. Lunch at LUU Noodle House, the usual meal. Pot Roast and the fixings for dinner.

Wednesday: (12/25) Christmas Day. A real day of relaxing today. Courtney came over and she and Dawn prepared chocolate fondue and fruit for breakfast. BBQ ribs, regular and sweet potato fries, green salad, guacamole, chips, and deviled eggs for dinner.
