Not much to report. Taking a bit of a break — you may or may not have noticed I didn’t even post last week. I didn’t do much. Heck, I didn’t do much this week either, but I wanted to check in with y’all.
Favorites of the week
Mr. Judy wanted to grill a roast for NYE, so he did. There was a lot of leftovers (which is why I don’t really like to do roasts for just the two of us). I came up with the idea to make what was left into an easy “Beef Wellington”.
I puree’d some spinach, added the left over garlic butter I’d made for the roast initially and then wrapped that all up in store bought puff pastry. It actually turned out quite well and the leftover roast didn’t get too well done. There was too much puff pastry, so I cut off the ends to make some spinach rolls, which was also tasty. While I do believe in eating healthy 80% if the time, 20% can be some indulgence (and I am not married to those ratios, either).
While I’ve been relaxing and working on Yoga stuff, I finished up the last season of “Outlander” I hadn’t yet watched on Netflix. I’ve also blown through “Firefly Lane” which seemed quite light at first but tackled a lot of heavy subjects — I enjoyed it. Together Mr. Judy & I watched “Travelers” — if you’re into the time travel genre, as I am, I recommend it (even if it’s somewhat violent at times).
There’s also been some house issues to deal with, as there always are when you own a house. Let’s just say the new dishwasher should come this week (and that was just one issue). I am, as always, grateful for a safe, warm home, clean water, enough to eat and so on.
I never managed a walk with one friend before she left for FL, but I did finally get together with a different friend for a walk this week.
ICYMI: Today’s Yin Yoga practice may help reduce anxiety here), I’ve also got a short Vlog explainig how Down Dog may help reduce anxiety, what’s coming to the Channel in January, and a very short practice including breath work to reduce anxiety here.
Coming up on Friday: Although I actually have some stuff to share — like my word for 2023 — I’m not sure when I’ll get to that. Most likely I’ll be going for a day visit to my mom this week.
