Happy Thanksgiving

Sorry about the delay, but when one is isolating to ride out the pandemic and when the numbers of those ill and dying is rising, we don’t do much.

 Another season, another set of masks.  This is my chief distraction now as we sit and wait for the vaccines to come out.  Making masks is sometimes satisfying and sometimes frustrating as I feel I’m doing the same thing over and over again with no let up in sight.  But people seem to like them and I do enjoy giving them away when I’m done.   It would help to have a real sewing area where the machine could be left up, decent work chair, etc., but you make do with what you have. Below are some of the holiday masks I got done to send on to Megan ahead of Thanksgiving.


We didn’t do anything for Halloween, but Megan dressed up at her school.   All of the teachers had to dress as characters out of books.  She’s Waldo from the Where’s Waldo book series.

Following the election, my blood pressure dropped to normal levels again.   I was really getting worried because over the past few months I had been able to decrease my medications and didn’t want to have to go back on them.   Turns out stress really does a number on all of us.

Dave and I had a quiet Thanksgiving this year.  Hopefully by next year we can have friends with us as we celebrate in the desert.    And yes, there were 2 bottles of wine on the table.   In fairness, the red was almost emtpy and I had to finish the last glass because it would have gone bad otherwise.  

We didn’t get to visit wineries this year, so we have been ordering from those we liked (after it cooled down enough to allow shipments into Arizona.).  These 6 bottles of Barbera are from St. Amant in Lodi, CA - we enjoyed this wine in 2019,tasting and purchasing at the winery, and look forward to enjoying these during the winter months ahead.
