Sam and I did five miles along the coast today, and walked part of it along the beach, when it was a very low tide. It was a lovely day. Not too cold, and not too crowded.
I'm tied for the lead in the pub football pool, so fingers crossed for the last two games. The Chargers beat Tampa Bay and Buffalo beat Denver, so the winner of the AFC West will be determined next week when the Chargers play Denver. Yeah, the Chargers have had a terrible season but I'm thrilled they still have a chance to make the playoffs. Go Bolts!
On the NFC side, I gotta root for the Atlanta Falcons. A year after they were left for dead by the Michael Vick debacle, they are in the playoffs with QB Matt Ryan.
I finally decorated my tree today - two weeks after I bought it. Yep, it's been that kind of month.
Have I mentioned that I've become obsessed with cheese? Goat cheese particularly, followed by brie served with mango chutney. I'd eat it three meals a day, but even I know that's a bit much.
Short work week . . . . yeah, the holidays!

Yay for finally getting your Christmas tree decorated. I'm right there with ya. :-)

And I could eat goat cheese three meals a day as well. It just shows what good taste we have, I think.

Merry Christmas.

Have you ever had warm goat cheese on a salad of Arugula? You slice the log thinly and coat the slices of goat cheese in egg and bread crumbs then cook (saute) in oil. Serve on the salad with a basalmic dressing.
