An event I was planning on attending for professional reasons was cancelled even though it was going to be very social distanced. The coordinator talked to a local health expert, who said they were expecting December to be bad, due to Thanksgiving and the pandemic. Stay safe, y'all!
2020 has even affected my love of FeedJinger.
This is the first year where I haven't been obsessively whoring people to the food blog and cooking group to share recipes and tips. It's one of my favorite things about FJ, but this year my heart just isn't in Thanksgiving.
Just me and my sons, who are each working different shifts so basically a lonely Thanksgiving buffet where I'll try not to cry when I zoom with my daughter who lives out of state and can't come home because we're responsible and choosing not to risk travel.
This time of year I always think of @Arete and how much I loved her participation in the food threads. My heart goes out to her family.
(And yes, I know she isn't here, but maybe her spirit can feel the notification of the mention.)
