A very cold morning but clear.It was 34degrees. We went for a nice walk. Not too much for B but still nice to see the early morning. We also saw a coyote and some deer. Funny, we rarely see these two wild life in the park.
I made chocolate Babkas for the first time. It’s a rich brioche type dough with a chocolate filling. Then it’s rolled up and baked. It was yummy and a nice treat.
Tonight I’m making the potato latkes and I’m going to grate them in the food processor. That should save some time from hand grating. I have the applesauce. I will also fry up some chicken strips just because I need to use the chicken up.
The gym was quite empty (my favorite time is Sunday). Then I went into Safeway for some jelly donuts for Hanukkah. I doubt we’ll eat them tonight but tomorrow morning sounds about right.
This week is light except B going to the lab and then infusion center. I don’t have any appointments. My next set of labs are coming up at the end of December and that’s it.
I decluttered a box of ornaments and Santas that no longer seem to fit with what I’m doing. I will end up with 2 bins of Christmas stuff. I ‘d love to get it down to one but there’s just a little too much for one bin. I think it’ll end up a bin and a half with most of the second bin being my Life magazine Christmas Santas. I did empty the wrapping paper holder container so I can get rid of that.
I finished the minimalist game for November. I maybe didn’t get a few days done but overall it was a success. One of the things I love about doing these sort of tasks is that it really helps me focus on getting rid of lots of little things I don’t need. It may not seem like a lot but it adds up and then draws etc look much better and clearer too.
