The Christmas Cat says hello!
And guess who drove the whole way! Matt’s back has been hurting him a little and car trips bother him the most, so I volunteered to drive. But first, I joined Audible (free 30 day subscription) and downloaded Prep by Curtis Sittenfield. Audiobooks make drives FLY by!
But here is something else I could not drive without: Yoga Tune Up balls. They are informally known in our house as “Yoga Tuna” balls because when you say tune up fast it might as well be tuna!
I used to use tennis balls to massage my back on car trips, but I got these a year ago as a sample kit for OpenSky. They have not left my car since! Tennis balls are softer and therefore apply less pressure. The Yoga Tuna balls are AWESOME and are almost as good as a massage!! 20 minutes with this guy in my car and my shoulders feel loads better.
When we arrived in Hillsborough at 2PM, we were perfectly hungry for lunch, which we brought with us as part of our Clean Out The Fridge Initiative!
We piled greens and spinach with leftover roasted sweet potatoes, blue cheese and brown rice
Plus a greek yogurt spiked with honey
I also had a few bites of Matt’s huge hunks of buttery bread
These bourbon balls and buckeyes were waiting for us upon our arrival! Matt and I split one of each for dessert.
I also stumbled upon a pot of chocolate ready for dipping. I quickly went through the list of things to dip in chocolate: pretzels, celery, oreos.
My dough balls!!!
One by one people are arriving at my parents’ house. Tonight is make-your-own sandwiches, then church, then our annual Xmas Eve Party!
