1. It's Thanksgiving week in the US of A so let's talk turkey. And by turkey I mean the elephant in the room because it's still 2020 and our blogs are a record of sorts of the times in which we live.
Do you live in a state that's instituted restrictions on the size of gatherings in your own home? What do we think about this?
I'm appalled by a lot of what we see happening in our country. What I think about restrictions ... I'm so sorry for everyone affected by them.
We will be having our usual Thanksgiving celebration this year. We have quite a few years under our belt, of doing Thanksgiving alone. (Leaving the Amish affected everything.) The first few years were the hardest, but we've come to fully enjoy our holidays with only our family.
My heartfelt sympathy to everyone who is struggling this year with a changed celebration.
2. Let's move in a cheerier direction. Will there be corn on your holiday dinner menu? How so? Cornbread-corn pudding-corn chips and dip-cornbread dressing/stuffing-corn chowder-or regular canned, frozen or fresh corn in a bowl...which of the 'corns’ listed is your favorite?
There will be corn on our Thanksgiving menu. We'll be making a Confetti Corn Casserole as one of the sides.
I like corn in every way on that list except corn pudding. I've never had that, but now I'm intrigued.
3. What is there a cornucopia of in your home, job, or life currently?
Currently ... food. I'll be baking pie today. Everyone seems to have a different favorite pie. It's Thanksgiving so I'm going ahead and making that everyone gets to enjoy a piece of their favorite pie, even if it means baking a slightly ridiculous number of pie.
4. Have you ever quit something (such as a habit, a food, a time-sucker, a relationship) cold turkey? Is there something you need to quit cold turkey?
I used to be in many circle letters, and enjoyed them thoroughly. I quit all of them cold turkey fourteen years ago.
5. Share a favorite verse, quote, saying, or song lyric relating to gratitude.
There is calmness and a quiet joy to a life lived in gratitude. ~ Quote
6. Insert your own random thought here.
I have a busy day ahead of me with Thanksgiving food prep. The ankle I had broken over twenty years ago is protesting quite vehemently. I'm thinking some interesting weather may be on the way, but in the meantime I'm hoping I'll still be able to accomplish everything I had planned for the day.
