Welcome to Sunday.
Cat level relaxation is a good weekend goal.
COVID-19 is starting to hit far too close to home. Not that I have ever doubted the seriousness of the Coronavirus but when the numbers I read about become people I know; it gets real. Honestly this is getting pretty damn scary.
You can’t be too careful. Unfortunately sometimes careful isn’t even enough.
As I sit here it seems like absolute frivolous crap to write about anything else……
But Thanksgiving is coming; and I have always liked Thanksgiving. A delicious meal and all day football…what more could I want?
This year will be a small traditional Thanksgiving dinner. A small roast turkey, au gratin potatoes, dressing, green bean casserole and homemade cranberry sauce.
The grand finale…. Thanksgiving isn’t complete without a pumpkin pie. 🙂
Thanksgiving is also, of course, about being thankful.
Earlier this year I decided to document gratitude in my daily journal. My goal was to list something within my entry I was grateful that day. This was in January before we knew what the year 2020 was going to hurl down upon us. As it turned out this exercise was a good reminder that I have a lot to be grateful for every single day. I am healthy, happily married and employed. I have absolutely everything I need.
What caught my eye this week:
Thanksgiving quotes to find the gratitude we crave this week and always.
Seriously-wear a mask….if you don’t like skyrocketing COVID-19 cases, hospitals filling up and lockdowns. Just do it.
Want a hug? Me too; like from friends I haven’t seen all year.
Positive self talk: It’s hard to be kind to others if you aren’t kind to yourself.
Organized people: Organized keeps me sane; at least somewhat.
