Friday, December 21 – Sunday, December 23

It looks as if the world didn’t end on Friday. Unless it did end and we’re all in some different state of reality.  I’ll have to mull this over a bit.  In any event, Friday was a pretty decent day, we went to Whole Foods to get the supplies for Christmas dinner.  One thing I like about Whole Foods is that there often are plenty of free samples on offer, though it can be hit-or-miss.  Today was definitely a “hit” day, with free samples of at least 15 different items on offer.  Among much else I had hummus, clementine slices, carrot sticks with miso dressing, cheddar cheese, and a couple different types of chips.  Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch?  I’ll have to say that getting to and from Whole Foods was no easy task, as it’s right next to a big shopping mall and the traffic was extremely heavy even during the early afternoon.

It turns out that our Christmas dinner will be a bit unconventional this year thanks to a major sale on New York strip steaks.  They were $10 a pound, down from the normal $16, and I bought five very large, thick steaks for $46.  People usually have turkey, a ham, or roast beef for Christmas, steaks are hardly usual fare, but it was too good a sale to pass up.  Besides, the steaks look magnificent.

Saturday and Sunday were much quieter days.  I stayed pretty much close to home, though on Sunday I made a quick trip to a nearby Best Buy for some last-minute shopping.  It was so jammed that even with all eight or nine registers in use there was at least a ten-minute wait in the checkout line.  On Saturday I made it to the gym for some upper body work.  Seated dumbbell shoulder presses: 5 x 8 x 45/45.  Skull crushers: 3 x 10 with a 70-pound EZ bar.
