That's right, we are in MASSACHUSETTS!
What is Thanksgiving if you can’t cram all twenty of your closest friends and relations into a too small house and gorge on turkey, mashed potatoes and pie?
This year Thanksgiving will be different. We won’t be attending large family gatherings (if we are following guidelines), so what can we do if we stay home and keep things small and quiet?
This could be the perfect year to reflect and be thankful. Although, I, like the rest of us love, to eat all the good things my cousins bring to our large gatherings.
Perhaps instead of lots of pie I can fill my day with history, not the colonial history, but the real history behind Thanksgiving.
We could all reflect on what we are thankful for.
A pandemic is a good time to focus on the ways we are fortunate and to give thanks, rather than how inconvenient everything currently is.
Go out for a brisk walk.
And last but not least: Read! Catch up on that TBR pile! I am all for the latter suggestion, and in this spirit, here is a reading list for you.
