I hope everyone had a happy Christmas! Mine was nice and quiet. The temps climbed into the mid 50s (F) here in Central PA. For the most part, the skies were clear. All in all, a nice non-snowy Christmas day.
I check the temp when I got up and according to Accuweather it was 41 (F). Looking out the window, it's foggy. Supposedly there's a slight drizzle happening, but not around my house. Rain is on the way, some today, more tomorrow, like the forecasters are saying 100% chance of rain.
Garbage collection is always a day late after Christmas, for me it will be tomorrow, but that doesn't stop some of my neighbors from putting out their refuse and recycling bins early. To be honest, I don't think they're aware of this delay.
And I know there are some out there who think I'm a little cold at times, well, according to the Washington Post, that's normal for me. For as long as I can remember, every time I've had my temperature taken, that old thermometer has pegged my body temp at 97, or there abouts. This means that when I was battling through one of my frequent bouts of tonsillitis, when my fever topped off at 104 (F), I was really running a super fever. One of those times happened during Navy boot camp and I was sent back to the barracks with a rack pass for 3 days. I later learned that with a fever that high, they should have hospitalized me. Now, isn't that interesting.
And I did make London Broil yesterday, though I roasted it instead of broiling it and ended up with just the right amount of pink. But, if I have to be truly honest, while the beef was quite tasty, it was the gravy that won the day. I have not had beef gravy in years! I may have to start buying more beef just to get to make the gravy. And Lily? She got a big, juicy beef bone with lots of fat, gristle, and cartilage cooked up for her.
