You have to admit that most of us will be glad to see the back of 2020. Even now that it's only weeks away, there's still trepidation. What will the next few weeks hold?
Life goes on - in its strange pandemic way. We have each found a new routine (and a new hairstyle - I now have a 5 inch white ponytail - DH may have one too if I stop cutting his hair) that in the past year has become our new normal. And even though for the most part (at least for many that I know) we haven't been hit personally with the virus, we now know many that have. This IMO was bound to happen as the number of positive cases escalate.
The only family members who have contacted Covid so far have been a step-grandson in Kentucky and a sister-in-law in Texas. Others we have heard about are 3 friends in Colorado. Only the SIL (83) was hospitalized, but is now home and doing well.
We remain sheltering at home, etc. and will continue to do so... (with or without the vaccine).
But going on to Christmas 2020....
I started my Christmas baking today:
We've decorated the house here and there (not a lot):
|Santa visits Finky mouse on China cabinet|
|Santa sharing Thanksgiving Table|
|Santa visits cheeky chickens who can't be fired due to studio closure|
|Elf and Christmas Angel|
|2020 downsized tree (with New Orleans Mardi Gras beads |
and apparently no Mardi Gras parades this year due to Covid)
| ...and sadly no cats lying by the fireplace |
first time in our 52 years of marriage
Anyway, that's enough sharing for today. Started this Friday and it's now Monday. I have finished 2 batches of whiskey balls and 2 batches of frosted Christmas tea cakes over the weekend.
