Guess what? Our Christmas Tree of 5 years died today. It’s been a family tradition for us to put up the Christmas Tree on the night of Thanksgiving with the help of our friends the K’s. Tonight we tried to so do, but the lights on the tree just won’t turn on.
Ha! If you know me, you know I love Christmas and Christmas Trees. This could have been a very sad time for me. However, I have learned during this 9 months of COVID19 pandemic that we really can’t hold on to things ... that we should be flexible because anything can happen. My husband has been wanting to get a smaller tree instead of this big one for a while now, so I guess this is the time to do it . We had this big Christmas Tree for 5 years. Instead of trying to fix this by adding lights I think we will just get a small tree.
We will have a small tree this year and forward.
Other than the tree, the Thanksgiving Day was great. It’s a small group this year. Just us 3 (N, B and myself). I talked to G on the phone and we had a good conversation. Our friends the K’s family came for dinner. Brad baked his famous and most loved Apple Crisp. We did turkey in the rotisserie. I forgot to put the green bean casserole in the oven when it was time for me to put it, so we didn't have the green bean casserole for dinner. I decided to put it in the oven anyway. Then we ate dinner. After dinner we went down for some relaxing dip in our jacuzzi. Guess what? I had forgotten about the casserole. And since I didn't put it in the timer because I thought we'd just be upstairs and I'd remember to take it out ... well, it was overcooked (a.k.a. burnt).
Ahhh, but life is good and we are thankful.
How was your Thanksgiving Celebration this year 2020?
