Thanksgiving has long been my favorite holiday because of the warmth of friends and family gathering together around my table. People fill my kitchen, good naturedly dodging each other, cats lurk in hope of a bit of turkey, and there's a bounty of goodwill.
That's not happening this year because of the pandemic. 2020 is a lost year in so many ways. So many events, so many gatherings, so many concerts and vacations, have been cancelled.
To the left is my country oak table, bought from a consignment shop. It has about five different leaves that can be inserted, and I bought it specially for Thanksgiving since I usually host here. Not this year so no extra leaves, but I do love the table!
