Today is my last day off before Christmas Day! Not bad, considering I work in retail and it’s utter mayhem in every shop, no matter how big or small, right now. A day off work doesn’t equate to a day of rest for though – oh no, for today is the day I’m baking dozen of cookies which shall be passed on as gifts to co-workers and ‘grown-up’ family members.
On the menu : Sugar Cookie Recipe-made-into-Hazelnut-Thumbprint-covered-in-Chocolate Cookies 😀 and Austrian Vanilla Crescents
Before I can get to that, I have an appointment with my Chiropractor, which hasn’t only been part of a series of appointments ever since I put my back out for the 2nd time in a matter of 5 months earlier this year, but is also coming quite handy-dandy today as I felt that familiar jolt of pain in my lower back two days ago… meh.
So, I haven’t been to the gym since Monday, though I’m yearning for the treadmill, as strange as that may sound to some. Anyway, I’m hoping to be able to hop back on the ‘moving pavement’ (<– huh!?) by wednesday next week, which would also coincide with my gym reopening after the festivities. Happy days!
Wish me luck..
