We do have a couple more trees and I will be sure to share those before years end.... they're simple like the others but still we love them.... for now, the garage looks as if a Christmas blimp of greens somehow got in and imploded, and well..... I'm up to my bum in greens. Not to mention preparing for the big Thanksgiving celebration! Ours this year will be very small, just me and BP, and the Girls of course. The kids all work out of the home, like most, and they feel it best not to bring to us what they may bring home from work. They have all had the need to be tested once or more and thankfully they have been negative. It will be a different day than past Thanksgivings, we won't give thanks for the extras gathered around our table. We will count our blessing that they are kind enough, smart enough and care enough about us not to take a chance at passing along to us that which has caused so, so many such suffering and heartbreak... and then we will give great thanks for all of them even though we can't see and hug them.
We took a short break this morning to make a special delivery to some dear friends.... I almost say family with these two as they treat us as such and the thought of them is a HeartSqueeze each time! A basket of goodies we carried in and after a cup of Joe, some fresh fruit and white cheddar cheese its, off we went with an armload of goodies headed back home.
Now I'm sure some of you are thinking.... no Thanksgiving with your family but you're out visiting others. Well, not that I need to explain, but I'm going to..... MaMa K and PopsB are retired, they have followed the directions of keeping themselves and others safe to a t..... a t! BigPops is retired and well, me..... I'm just temporarily out of work, sorta!! We follow the direction as well, and have little to no exposure to anyone other than us and if and when we do we are extremely cautious. We decided we needed to see each other and deemed it safe. We wore our masks the entire time, except when sipping and munching and we kept the distance then. Their was laughter, good conversation and a bit of food.... most importantly their was the love of friends..... or might I say family
The two Pops.... sharing deer stories. And much needed fellowship
If I don't get a chance to pop in before the big day, all of us here on the Lane want to wish you the best Thanksgiving you imagine.....
Count your Blessings!
BigPops, Sharon, Ivy, Lola & Isabelle
