I hope you are doing well. Today is two days after Christmas Day. It was such a nice holiday these past few days and I really enjoyed having today off work for Christmas Day Observed to do a few things around the house. Mostly to relax, look at my gifts, and to start thinking a bit about New Year goals. It is Monday and doesn't feel at all like a Monday and now we are in the time between Christmas and New Year's Day when I have no idea what day it is and what to do with myself. Like the meme below states so well.
I never shared the French toast casserole from All Recipes and how it looks and turned out. I had a piece yesterday morning and it was so good the next day as well. I had it with some fruit and it was so delicious. We enjoyed it on Christmas day for brunch when my mother-in-law came over.
I got some wonderful gifts for Christmas. I got the book I asked for called Malibu Rising, a Happy Planner for 2022 and planner stickers, cookie mix and accessories, cookies, chocolate and jam, I got an ornament for Millie's first Christmas from my dad. I got some lovely sweaters from my mom. I wore one yesterday as it was perfect green for the holidays.
I got a puzzle that I started today from my sister, she got it from Indigo. It was a bit tough to do the puzzle at times with Millie trying to eat the pieces. I was also gifted a puzzle roll up mat from my sister, so I rolled my puzzle progress up when I was done for today so Millie can't eat the pieces while I am away.
Yesterday we went to my mother-in-law's condo for Christmas lunch. It was nice to see Liam's family and exchange gifts and have lunch together. I was gifted a Michael's gift card from my mother-in-law, I am sure I will find lots there! I also got the slippers below that are so comfortable from La Vie en Rose.
It was such a lovely day today to sleep in and feel so rested all day. I enjoyed staying in and watching the snow fall outside the window. I had turkey and side leftovers from Christmas dinner for lunch, I did some work on my budget for end of the year. I wrote this blog post, and reflected on the holidays. Tomorrow I will be back at work for boxing day. I am feeling more refreshed now. It will be good getting back into my work routine rested and feeling happy from the holidays. I hope that you also enjoyed the holidays and time away from work or your obligations for a bit. This week I will be preparing for the New Year and will share some posts leading up to 2022!
Have a great day!
