If you’re looking for me today, that’s where I’ll be: up on the roof. (And yes, now I’ll be humming that song all day, trusting I sound like Her Royal Highness, Carole King.)
It’s a functional exercise day for me with gutter cleaning, leaf raking/bagging/hauling and general home spiffying. I predict 3 or 4 hours, which should be enough to replace my 45-minute normal Friday gym workout. I’m counting on it anyway.
Before I head outdoors, I thought I might share these handy links from (my future employer) The Food Network on how we can lighten up holiday cooking:
I also offered my Highly Informative and Fascinating advice on the subject in this post:
You know, just in case you were thinking of bringing a lighter dish to the potluck. Not that you have to; we like decadent recipes, too! Especially since we’re only reading them.
If you’re worried about being late to the party, stop! We have the whole month of December for sharing!
And now…to the roof! Here’s hoping I don’t fall and break my leg because a) I don’t have health insurance and b) it would hurt like hell!
Wishing you all a safe and wonderful weekend!
