It's FRIDAY and we are still here!

I am trying the above--saying, "I WILL"---
Some evenings it does not work, but, lately, it is working more times than not--
Bad habits are so hard to break----I WILL BREAK eating HIGH CALORIC munchies AFTER dinner!-----After all, I never ever drink diet coke anymore---and if I can do that, I WILL --I WILL be strong--
-
Doncha wish eh?
"IF it's going to be, it's up to me!"


This picture was taken inside of Toronto Pearson Airport--no people!

Son #2, the Pilot, was en route to Ottawa to spend time with his daughter, in University there.
His comment was, that he feels Air Travel is quite safe right now--as no-one is flying---
Wear the mask--social distance , and away you go---

Christmas will be a challenge here--- But, Thanksgiving is a challenge already for all in the U.S.--- Thanksgiving weekend in Canada, himself and I spent alone--it wasn't that bad! ==Well, we are still alive -----

Lord love a Duck! Sparkly people are so special!
Don't forget the mask this weekend--and maybe try to remember these Pandemic times will end, sooner than later------I hope!

    We are going to go to my son's across state. As he has stage 4 cancer and we never know which holiday may be his last. We discussed it and since we are mostly quarantined in our home, he said it was safe enough for him. The grandchildren as so looking forward to us as we haven't seen them since June outside of facetime. But it is only going to be the 6 of us. We are going up Wednesday which traffic will be horrendous, and then come back home on Saturday.

    This will be the first Thanksgiving without my beloved son. It will be very hard, but we will get through it.

    Thanksgiving Day will be different for my husband and I this year. Instead of being with 20+ family members, we will be having dinner at our house with only our son, daughter in law and 13 months old grandson. The only reason they will be here is that I am at their house four days a week babysitting while my son and daughter in law are working from home during the day. We will miss our four daughters and their families.

    Thanksgiving will be hard this year for us too. We were going to share it with my younger daughter, her hubby and my 17 y.o. granddaughter. Then I got sick and had to have a Covid test. I have not received the results back yet. Now, DH and I will be eating alone. My daughter ordered Thanksgiving dinner from a restaurant and she is dropping ours on our front porch. I can step out to get it as long as I have a mask on and stay 6 feet away from her. I'm in guaranine so can't get close. 2020....so glad it's almost over.

    I have decided I am a very weird person. Yes I am sad things are going to be different this year. I will be home alone for both holidays. But I am finding for me that is exciting (don't get me wrong I will miss not being with my friends but they made a good decision not to do it this year) about how can I make Thanksgiving and Christmas special for ME!!! I think my friends are going to deliver food but if not I discovered one of the restaurants in my area is giving free food away on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. No questions asked so I will go get my dinner there if no one brings me anything. I am also going to get makings for soup so if I decide not to go out I will have a wonderful soup to eat. I have a couple of books that I can hardly wait to read and I have movies to watch. So I am going to have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I will be thinking and praying for all of you that you have blessed my life in many ways. Maybe that is why I am weird is because I decided a few months ago to switch how I was putting my focus on things. Yes I know the world is a MESS and we have to deal with the virus and our lives have changed but I decided not to focus on that but focus on all the blessings I receive on a daily basis. Yes I am sad I haven't seen my friends for months or have not been touched since the end of February but deep inside I am also joyful that I am alive, that my friends and family are alive, etc.

    I am getting exciting planning on what I am going to do for Christmas this year. It may not be the same but it is still going to be AWESOME!!! Since I have always gone to my friends house for Christmas I never decorated my apartment. Today I bought a picture that lights up of the Nativity. And I am sitting looking at it now. It makes me smile every time I look at it. I am also going to buy some lights to put below my window. So yes I am excited. My goal is to have all my Christmas cards finished by the 10th and since my friends told me they did not want me to give them gifts I will have from the 10th to Christmas to just relax and truly enjoy the season. Which will be the first time for me. I am always running around making, buying, and wrapping gifts until Christmas Eve.

    Have a blessed evening emoticon

    That is shocking to see the airport so empty! Air travel must be safe.

    My hubby & I are going to find out how lonely Thanksgiving for two will be. These are trying times.

    We will be celebrating Thanksgiving on Sunday with my family. I am having foot surgery on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, so the family all agreed to celebrate on Sunday.

    Have a great weekend!

    Looks like our Thanksgiving has shrunk to even less. The lady dentist in town has covid and her son and my greatgrandaughter and many other children that age have been in Dance classes together and other programs. So granddaughter and her daughter are quaranteened til tthe 30th.
    The air port on TV did not look empty like the one you showed Lynda. Our Gov. put restrictions back on and the hoarding has started again. I had hoped people would have learned and will follow the guide lines given. In our town we are staying home, wearing masks etc. Covid keeps marching on!!

    Our organist at church just lost her husband to Covid this morning. Hurts more when it's people you know.
    We have one single male friend joining DH and me for dinner on Thanksgiving. Little fuss.

    I have to admit I just ate 2 Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I'll be alone on Thanksgiving, but yesterday I got groceries: a boneless turkey breast, green beans & mushroom soup but forgot the french fried onions, a pie crust for pumpkin. Also forgot rutabaga, without which for me it is not Thanksgiving, so I'll have to make another trip. Butter was on sale, so I got 4 pounds, which will last into January (frozen!)
    Tonight: carrot/onion soup, brussels sprouts, and a all-beef polish sausage.

    My family is each having Thanksgiving in their social bubble, just their own family. Unfortunately I’m out of that bubble. Will be celebrating alone but with my dog, Dylan. Not the first time I’ve been alone. I just hope it’s better by Christmas. Celebrating that alone is not good. Although I know I can do it, if I have too! I would just like the cases in WI to go down and stay down. emoticon emoticon

    Hubby and I will be spending our Thanksgiving alone.
    I will miss my family, but it's the best thing to do right now.

    Stop bringing things into the house that you cannot have. It's a lot easier to keep them out of the house than it is to not eat them once they're there. This would be the time to concentrate on that while the family isn't stopping by.

    I gave up diet soda a while back but gradually returned it. Now once again I'm try to wean myself off it once again, because truly it is not good for you.

    Lynda, I guess I had a senior moment as I thought I had commented on your blog earlier! We flew to San
    Antonio, Texas Nov. 6 and found airlines safe. The snack was a small bottle of water, cookies, and a small pack of Cheesits all in a small plastic ziplock bag. Very sanitary! The masks were necessary but it is that way all over the country. Hope you weekend is super! emoticon emoticon

    We will be alone - just the two of us - for Thanksgiving too. It's not what we would prefer, but it is a choice we all made. At least now we live close to each other - literally walking distance if the weather is decent, so we stay safe for now so we can have happier times in the future. My husband's extended family has started having Zoom family get-togethers once a month which is a kind of interaction that has only now become available for everyone, so this year we celebrate that we don't have to fly 3000 or 4000 miles to visit.

    Stay safe and have a great weekend!

    You do it you look how far you have come. keep wearing the mask wear a smile under it
    Our air ports are empty because most of our governor s are telling us to stay home they are limiting the number on the concourse sitting area . the colleges say if you go home stay there until School opens in Jan.
    others have self isolate for 10 to 14 days after returning home.

    The news about three companies seeking approval for their vaccines is most welcome. It will take some time, of course, for distribution to reach us commoners. It is truly appropriate for Health Care workers and first responders to receive it as a priority. It appears as though the light at the end of the tunnel may not be the oncoming train....Stay positive, test negative as Nora O'Donnell tells us.
