Day 3252: How I spent Thanksgiving 2021

How I spent Thanksgiving 2021 included:

  • blogging,
  • taking a walk,
  • spending time with people I love,
  • missing those who weren’t there,
  • eating vegetarian “turkey” and pie,
  • observing precious creatures at play,
  • facing fears,
  • staying safe,
  • reaching 16K followers on Twitter,
  • giving thanks for every precious moment, and
  • listening to Anaïs Mitchell’s 2010 concept album “Hadestown.”

Now I’m thinking about how I’m going to spend the day after Thanksgiving (which will include working from home and reading your comments about this blog post).

No matter what day it is, I give thanks for you!

  1. I had the hardest time figuring out what the aged garden gnome was! What a productive walk you had. Happy Day after Thanksgiving.

  2. Your Thanksgiving Day walk filled me gratefully, Ann. Happy day after. We’re hearing snow, snow, snow as we face the rest of this long weekend here. I’ll stay in with Karen and Ellie and appreciate our bubble as we avoid as many turkeys as we can.

  3. What is there a fish painted on the ground in front of the garage door? Is that a reminder not to pour antifreeze into the drain? Very interesting. (I’m not sure whether the photo was of the fish, the door or the overturned box.)

    Right now I am afraid of the new Covid variant.

  4. I shall spend most of the day after in pondering. What else would I do I wonder?

  5. This year’s Thanksgiving was smaller and quieter than previous years, but that’s okay. With a birthday approaching next month I suppose I’m facing my fear of getting older, but then I’m too glad to be here to be afraid.

  6. I’m glad you enjoyed your Thanksgiving, along with beautiful plants, red dogwoods, Chinese silver grass, and milkweeds seeding. I enjoyed all but missed Michael’s dishes and wild Joan. Mine was okay.

    • That bush could also be the (Euonymus Alatus) Winged Spindle Burning Bush, which is of Asian origin but became very popular in the U.S. due its flaming red color.

  7. I enjoyed your walk, and noticed lots of things left behind. I am always fascinated by these things for some reason. by accident, on purpose, or just forgotten? p.s. I took a pic of that same red bush that I put in my blog today and the pies look amazing

  8. We have mobile phones on the beach, too
