Bringing the Holidays to the Joint

After a great session of chin ups, see saw presses and push ups, I stuck around the gym to attend the Rock Hard Abs and Bottoms class. The usual instructor Elena was not there and a substitute was in her place. I contemplated attending the class (I really like Elena’a class) but decided to give the sub a try. I’m glad I stayed for the class. The substitute instructor was very good and gave us a great session of abdominal work and lower back strengthening. After the gym, a well deserved treat was in order. I headed over to meet a friend at the Second Cup and enjoyed a festive coffee and almond chocolate biscotti.

Later, my lack of holiday decor made me head to the shops where I found a few things to make my living space more merry and bright. I found these cool reindeer candle holders at Kitchen Stuff Plus.

After weekly grocery shopping, it was time to deck the halls. Decorated my living space sipped on a glass of red wine (yes, yes, just one) while watching Rosemary Clooney and Vera Elen sing “Sisters” in my fave classic White Christmas.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around these here parts and I truly love it.
