Christmas โ€™21 [Advent Day 11] ๐ŸŽ„โœจ (And Other Stuff)

I’m putting everything together into one post today because sadly I forgot to get a photo of Buddy and Sarah in time. It was an unusually busy day. My mom in law and Christopher’s Grandma came over, along with our friend, and we all met up with my mom at the Texas De Brazil in Dolphin Mall for a really fancy dinner to celebrate 20 years of my mom and I living in the United States (though really it’s tomorrow –we arrived on December 12th, 2001).

On the ride there, I managed to snap this photo of the sunset. It was really pretty.

I only had a small piece of meat. I tend to fill up on sides here because they are so good…

Since we were celebrating an anniversary, we got a free slice of cake!

It was a really nice time, I’m so exhausted though. Work is just piling up around me. I hope this coming week I can catch up a little.

Sunset Walk ๐ŸŒ†

I did a lot of walking today. My first walk, taking into account a Target stroll, was nearly three hours long. Yesterday I was having fun with my friend and didn’t count calories so I wanted to feel good about myself again by pushing myself further in the morning. I walked 10.5 km.

In the evening, I set out a bit too late, so I had to deal with massive rats on the way home again (they come out in the evening). I forget every time and I always regret not leaving earlier. I like rats, having had them as pets, but wild street rats still scare me.

However, I did get some beautiful sunset photos as you saw above and can further see below:

On the note of walking, it’s been a month almost now of walking 6 km daily, rotating all of my mostly terrible uncushioned shoes as best as I can, and it is obvious I need something more cushioned as I have blisters in a bunch of places and I’m starting to feel pain when I’m only a couple blocks away from the house. So at some point this week I’m going to look into proper walking shoes.
