Teenage Slang: A Guide


When the leaves start to fall, my thoughts turn to Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday.  Food, family and no presents.  But not this year. For the first time since we’ve been grandparents, our whole family will not be together for Thanksgiving dinner.

Nobody seems to be having their traditional Thanksgiving this year.  Normally, I would be starting to bake our must-have desserts to store in our freezer. I’ll probably make most of them anyhow, hoping that Seth will be able to come from New York for his 50th Thanksgiving dinner.

We’ll have a whole turkey because somehow just a turkey breast won’t work for me.  We’ll have to deal with the leftovers.

We will still share our Grateful Jar with the whole family via Zoom.  And we will take individual photos and ask one of our technology-savvy grandchildren to photoshop them into our annual family Thanksgiving picture.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Thanksgiving 2021.

Hi Judy,
I have been a fan of your blog for many years. Your blog has helped me through my difficult time while caring for my late husband battling with cancer for 12 years and now adjusting my life as a widow.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving prep ahead! Would you share your desert recipes and Thanksgiving recipes with your blog readers. Thanks! Be well and stay safe!

Dear Judy, my thoughts are with you. How sad this Thanksgiving will be for so many families. Look after yourself and your husband. I hope Seth can make it to share your feast, and you and your family enjoy your Zoom celebration this year.
