As I sit writing this, the sun has just set. Outside, I can hear the wind howling and raindrops, as they land on the windows. The summer-like weather that we enjoyed a week ago is long gone and Winter is just around the corner.
The days are short and the evenings - long and dark. And although I love the warm months with their outside pleasures, I do look forward to this time of year when I turn my attention inward to my nest.
For most of you, I am sure, this season will be quite different from previous years. 2020 has been an aberration... and hopefully a year we never have to repeat. Thanksgiving is just a little over a week away, and we have made the decision to forgo the normal family gathering. We are trying to keep our "bubble" quite small these days in order to decrease the potential for illness. And while it is sad that we will not all sit together at the same table, we feel that it is prudent in these times. Sacrifice for the greater good, in the hopes that all of our loved ones remain healthy. There will be more Thanksgivings in the future. We have much for which to be thankful, so that is what we will concentrate on in the coming weeks.
And.... we are...
