I especially identify with #5. — Those precious Christmas cards!
Me, too. Even trying to purge some of my stuff saved, it’s hard to just toss cards with personal notes. thanks for saying how you feel, too.
Being able to meet with people, even if distant, is so important.
sometimes we don’t realize how much we need others in our lives.
agree on the post-Thanksgiving food… always more enjoyable. (We do a traditional menu… but, conforming to tradition entails sitting down and eating more at one meal than we have for years. (Funny how fundamental functions like eating can change without noticing) and so, the leftovers, more amenable to smaller portions, all the more enjoyable.
Have an excellent week.
thank you Clark.
I am so glad your writing and study groups are meeting live again, even if it’s distanced. I’m also so glad you’re able to phone friends you don’t get to see often.
me, too. Zoom is wonderful but cannot substitute the real thing. I really miss getting hugs.

I have cards from Christmases past that I can’t bear to throw away, either! We froze some of our leftover Thanksgiving food so we can enjoy it at a later date. Looking forward to that meal! Six Sentence Story is so much fun! I still haven’t read last week’s entries. I’ve got to get busy!
Me, too. I made turkey vegetable soup and froze it in small containers.
Being able to read the messages written inside cards saved so many years ago brings back so many memories. I love your idea of having tied them with ribbons in bundles. It is so hard to depart with them.
Reconnecting via telephone calls to longtime friends is such a pleasure anytime, but especially around the holidays.
I don’t live in the past but i do love remembering the good parts. I’m not a telephone person, prefering email but i do indulge in the long calls over the holidays. thanks for reading and commenting. I enjoy reading what you write.
Reconnecting with friends is so nice and I love being able to see friends at meetings that had stopped for a while.
