Another Christmas has come and gone and here we are embarking on a new year already. I am finally beginning to feel a little better after two weeks of coughing, sneezing, headaches and nose blowing. My man voice is starting to dissipate and my energy level is almost back to a 10. I am back on track with my exercise program and eating healthy again. Whew. The holidays are
rough a challenge.
We spent New Year's Eve at the home of our dear friends, the Martin's. We were not the usual party animals. We departed the gathering at 11 p.m. because FW (my hubby) started feeling under the weather. Guess he caught my virus. It was pretty much inevitable.
My girlfriend asked me to make a veggie platter for the party. So, it was the perfect opportunity to use my new stainless steel hot/cold serving platter that my Dad and Nancy got me for Christmas. This special "caterer style" platter has a thermo-sensitive core to ensure a hot or cold temperature. The food on the platter will stay hot or cold for up to 2 hours and the presentation looks great, making this one of my favorite Christmas gifts of 2010. Thanks Dad and Nancy! Check out FrontGate to see the complete line of serving platters and other cool items.
Getting around town and exploring new places is no problem now, thanks to "Lori", our new car navigation GPS device better known as Tom Tom. Doesn't everyone have a pet name for their GPS device? This Christmas gift made the Best List of 2010. Thanks Mom and Jer!
This next Christmas gift is useful, but should it be classified as a Christmas gift? According to FW, you betcha! It's the first thing I saw peering out of my stocking on Christmas morning - a spatula! A brand new Teflon coated black flipper! FW says I need a little assistance in making omelets and this tool should help me flip them over with ease. What FW doesn't know is that I pretend to be no good at making omelets so that he will make them for me. I would definitely have to classify this Christmas gift as the worst of 2010. Sorry FW.
It's a good thing that my stocking was stuffed with other goodies, such as lotions, tea, perfume and candy! He really is a thoughtful and generous man - that Santa Claus.
