In New Brunswick, it was announced that families could
not join together in homes over Thanksgiving weekend.
At the last minute, since we are all fully vaccinated,
we decided to get together at the nearest restaurant.
( I guess it was allowed because someone checks
if you are vaccinated before you are together.)

Happy Thanksgiving from McDonald's!

I placed a loaf of Mom's bread in my friend's office with a note.

With these hard days at school, it was a good time to leave a little something.

She found me, shared her gratitude, and said, 

   "I love your mom's bread. You can tell it's just oozing with love."

That's exactly what Mom's bread is filled with.

Teachers are

Teachers are very

Teachers are very tired

To know what it is truly like

you have to be on the inside

day after day

during a pandemic

with changing confusing guidelines

and often feeling forgotten

When we were first married, we had an argument over ketchup. (Well, let's be honest, it was all me.) We were in a drive thru on our way home from Michigan and Jim drove away without checking the bag.

   It's still a thing many years later.

On Sunday, we went through a drive thru on the way home from Halifax. I asked him to ask for ketchup which he did. As he passed it to me, I said, "It's not enough" and he still drove away from the window.

I did some growling. He pulled over in the parking lot of an Irving gas station, went in, and brought out a bottle of Heinz ketchup!

   So funny.

   True love.

For some reason, it takes my brain a moment to process

...the open-close symbols on elevators, which is which.

If he knows I'm taking a picture,
he will do something so I won't share it.
He didn't notice me taking this one!

I figure 28 years is long enough to be married.

I'm not sure why -

I write to-do lists

and then I seem to think it's a good idea to go from memory.
