Monday | 28 December 2020 | La Quinta, California: We have been doing what you have been doing. Eating. We have also stepped-up our exercising, but am not so sure the two are equalling-out? It's "the holidays" - we do what we can.
Our adorable family are camped-out in a mountain cabin, quarantining, trying to fill a three-week-from-school break. They had a 30-minute snow storm. Okay, maybe it wasn't an actual storm, but for LA kids, it was something.
We do not observe Christmas, but still celebrate another December 25 birthday: my favorite singer, Jimmy Buffett, turned 74 on December 25th. I baked two burger buns (for our usual cheeseburgers-in-paradise menu), and used the rest of the dough to make cinnamon rolls for the next morning.
(The two little cranberry tarts - trying to use a few cranberries still in the freezer from Thanksgiving - were not consumed... and are still in the freezer. Will we ever eat them?)
Our once-a-year celebration. We blasted Buffett music all day and enjoyed our burgers. Happy Birthday, Jimmy!
Another wonderful reason to live in the desert in the winter? Flowers. (Phone) photos from our walk yesterday:
Until my next update, I remain, your well-fed correspondent.
