Tuesday musings . . . and be careful because if you are around on Monday when I am writing, you could wind up the subject of my blog!

Amparo’s email on fredslist yesterday got me thinking early.


During the wonderful cooking frenzy on Thanksgiving Day, my mind always goes to my list. My blessings list. It’s sort of my own Thanksgiving tradition with myself. This year, I started early.

In a year in which we are struggling through once in a lifetime challenges, my list is longer than ever – and that is at the top of my list. Who would have thought that in a year in which we are all trying to manage a pandemic, my blessings list would be growing?

** I am blessed to really like (and still like!) the people I was stuck inside with for months.

** I am blessed to appreciate and truly enjoy my work family – and to sorely miss the time we spend together every day.

** I am blessed to have discovered Zoom with all of you!

** I am blessed to have found that I really like limoncello – I really, really like limoncello.

** And most importantly, I am blessed that everyone around me has stayed healthy.


See what I mean? I am happy to say that it is a happy list this year.

What is on your blessings list this year?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    I think that this year the recognition that we are blessed to have our health takes on new meaning.
    And, as for limoncello, tried it every trip to Italy, several times. I still can't stand it. . .

    Health. This pandemic has made me focus more on it (or lack of in some cases). It makes you stop and smell the roses for a moment and realize there is more to it then the rat race of work, paying bills and buying stuff. Without health, you got nothing.
    For the record Nancy, what is limoncello?

    With all the anxiety and worry, we do need to take a moment and recognize what we have to be thankful and grateful for----I share many of your blessings Nancy, and for that I am indeed grateful. Knowing our similarities regarding alcohol, I am going to try lemoncello---I believe I have had a bottle in my liquor cabinet for years----hopefully it doesn't spoil. This Thursday I will be grateful to have my daughters and their husbands and significant others at my table---even if we are sitting 10 feet apart, and the rest of my family on a zoom screen sharing a holiday that has traditionally meant family for us.

    Every day is a blessing and I am grateful to still be adding them. CoronaTimes has been fraught with challenges and I am grateful for solutions to most and workarounds for the rest.
