Things I am Thankful for this Thanksgiving 2020

The fact that I don’t have Covid 19: I try to stay at home as much as possible, but when I do go out, which is rare, I also wear a mask. I just got two new ones with Christmas designs.

Stylish and fashionable masks so that I are less likely to get Covid 19

A warm, comfortable and safe warm to shelter in, to avoid the pandemic

My new zero-gravity massage chair. With each new feature that I’m learning to use, I like it more and more every day. I love the zero-gravity feature; it gets my feet up higher than my heart, which all of the caregivers have been hounding me to do. It has Bluetooth and I can pipe in music from one of my playlists, audible books, podcasts, or guided meditation from Calm.com

For my cell phone and laptop, it’s nice to know that I have backups in case my desktop crashes.

My computer, laptop, and cell phone that allows me to stay in touch with others. I downloaded VPN, which makes my cell phone work better. I still need to get wifi to make it work even better.

Learning how to use the Bluetooth feature on my phone.Finding dozens of new-to-me podcasts to listen to while I’m using my zero-gravity massage chair with my feet up higher than my heart.

Decorating the Christmas tree for the first time in several years.

Putting up Christmas decorations early. I never thought I would say that. I bought some new things this year, which makes it even more exciting. I ordered some beautiful things from JoAnn’s Fabrics, I was thrilled to learn they did mail-order, and I got a white-feathered owl with silver trim and a set of glittery white polar bears (mama and three babies). I ordered 6 battery operated candles that are also solar-powered, they come on when it gets dark and go off when it gets light, so these will be helpful with power outages. Right now, the candles are in the windows in the living room, dining room, and kitchen. I ordered a set of red Christmas balls that remind me of the ones my mother had on our family trees each year, some white snowflakes, a set of gnome ornaments, and silver tinsel. They all should go well with my red, gold, and silver ball ornaments, and my snowman, reindeer, and Santa Claus ornaments. Oh, and I found a pompom Santa Claus with crocheted spiral legs that I made 35 years ago. I was afraid I had thrown him away so I was happy to find him again. And a snowman wreath that I made during the same time frame. I plan to “renovate” that and remove the old ribbon and replace it with black and white snowflake printed ribbon.

The Gabapentin medication is finally working for the peripheral neuropathy, and I’m having less pain and needed less medication.

I see the RA doctor on December 28th, so that’s hopeful for my knees.

Cheetos-flavored popcorn. Just opening the bag and the scent of the popcorn makes me feel I’m in a movie theater.

Assorted kinds and flavors of tea that I can drink based on my mood; honey lavender, tangerine, Hibiscus, and orange pekoe, which reminds me of my grandmother.

Mashed potatoes and gravy for Thanksgiving dinner.

My little fuzzy soft heated blanket throws. I love these so much that I have two… one for the bed and one for my chair, and just ordered a third to use on the massage chair.

I hit my goal of 50,000 words on my National Novel Writing Month book… I have created a book cover and donated to the program. I still have a long way to go before the book is actually finished. But this is one I may actually get done.

My family history, family photos, and my family memories. I’m so happy that I have all those photos to remember those no longer here, like my grandmother, my mom, and my daughter.

Community light displays and decorations that help to cheer me up.

New Clothes. I haven’t bought new clothes for several years. I bought my day jammies, a long pink ombre dyed skirt and a white denim jacket.

Biden and Harris won the election and they can start to correct some of the damage that Trump did. I know he won’t be going away and will still be trying to cause more problems for a while yet.

The fact that it’s now the 11th month of the year so 2020 is almost over. But I also know all our troubles won’t magically disappear on Jan 1st, or even Jan 20th. Trump and his followers will still be pushing their conspiracy theories. While a vaccine is on the horizon, it won’t be available to everyone immediately. Plus the anti-vaxxer’s, anti-maskers, and conservatives will refuse to get it. So social distancing and mask-wearing will continue through 2021 and maybe longer. I’m just thankful that most of us are smart enough to trust the doctors and scientists and do the things we need to do. So in the meantime, I will buy new masks and wear them to do my part.
