Thanksgiving for Two
Liz and I ended up staying home for the Thanksgiving weekend. Depsite our caution, we really do miss our annual traditions and wish we could have celebrated with family.
But the numbers I see keep trending upwards, and I keep thinking back to the data that Dr. Arwady shared in mid-October. I do believe small, indoor gatherings increase the chance of passing along the coronavirus, and that risk has never really gone away – despite how tired we are of things, despite how much we wish it would go away.
For dinner, we made roasted brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, and grilled up some turkey tenderloin. Liz also got us a pumpkin pie from Bang Bang Pie, which was fantastic.
The two of us have a tremendous amount to be thankful for: our health, the health of our loved ones, our continued employment during a pandemic. We have a roof over our heads, and good food on the table.
There will be many cold months ahead. And as we wait for that future day we can see and hug our friends and family again, I’m thankful we have one another.
