Here I am, the day after Thanksgiving in the U.S.A., and without one idea for a post.
I was caught off-guard all week for various reasons.
Firstly, Son #1 and The Granddaughters (teens) all coming,
Secondly, Son and Granddaughter #2 coming,
Thirdly, Son was called out–of-state to his 4th wild-fire gig this season and no one was coming,
and Fourthly, Granddaughter #2 coming alone.
That was a lot of juggling, mostly because Firstly, Son #1 is highly gluten-sensitive
and Secondly, Granddaughter #2 doesn’t eat very many things.
So, I was making things and scratching things off the menu, then adding others again.
It ended up going well, with Granddaughter #2 eating more things than usual and with me sending things home for Granddaughter #1, because she had to work the holiday.
It was cold and rainy, but all was good. I saw both girls. I was in contact via video chat with Son#2, d-in-law and Toddler Grandson, (all of whom have recovered from COVID), and then through text with Teen Grandson, after I had cleaned up and conked out watching a movie, (one I chose because I had seen it many several times and knew what would happen in it and to me, when I sat down long enough: SNOOZE.)
Generally, we would have had both sons and all the grandkids, often more relatives or friends from out-of-state. Life has changed, but I won’t. I have enough food made for a week.
But it’s Black Friday and I figure that if you are not out or online shopping,(which I may do later), you may have guests, are just recuperating from the holiday, or working on the next one, (I am doing the last two), I doubt that many of you are here today anyway.
I started organizing projects which means that I am completely UNorganized at this time and with all having to be stopped for the past few days, I am making an effort to also put some things back where they should have been in the first place.
I hope all of the U.S. Friends had a great holiday, and that all have had a good week.
