Santa came to our house and brought delicious candy. Too much candy, so I told Mr. UT to hide it, and dole it out to me. He can moderate, except when it comes to cookies. I actually made sugar cookies, my mother’s recipe, and they were so good, he had them for breakfast lunch and dinner! LOL He didn’t want to share them with the neighbors, because the poor guy never gets homemade anything!
We had a lovely December, probably the best we’ve ever had. We entertained a small group, went to friend’s house to dinner, stayed active by walking a lot, and even ice skating! I’ve been getting to my yoga studios regularly, too.
My fifth Christmas not drinking, and it was the best. I actually find I am much more witty at parties when I don’t drink. Well, at least I make myself laugh! Drinking at parties just didn’t bother me this year. I don’t stay as long, partly due to my cochlear implants, because it gets tiring to listen so hard for a long time.
I took a break from blog reading, but I will get back soon.
I am giving a shout out to my friend Damien who writes at Walking in Sober Boots. He is writing a series on the language of AA. For those people who struggle with that, I hope you will find his writings helpful.
I don’t have too much more to say, but I wanted to check in with you all!
With an extra pound or five,
PS – Wendy Walks LOL
Wendy walks for beauty,
Wendy walks on streets.
Wendy walks in forests,
Where Wendy finds some peace.
Wendy walks with loved one,
Wendy walks for snacks,
Wendy walks both slow and fast,
And then she takes a nap!
