Getting in the Thanksgiving Spirit! (Puzzle-Contest)
Saturday, November 20th, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…Diane Sallans!

U.S. Thanksgiving is just days away! One last grocery shop tomorrow, and then we’ll be spending the week with the kids, hunkered down for the cold and getting ready for the big feast on Thursday. This year, it’ll just be us. We’re still observing COVID protocols to keep the seven inside this house safe. We’ll miss visiting with family, but it is what it is. And truthfully, we’re looking forward to the downtime—playing board games in the evenings and watching movies together. I cleared my calendar of work so I can enjoy the time, although I might work on some jewelry and art projects, maybe make some potholders, too, to get ready for the crafts show my daughter and I are participating in early December. We’re not nearly ready. However, this kind of rush is the kind I enjoy when I get to create something with my hands, beads, and paint.

But onto the contest! I’m wondering two things. Solve the puzzle, because it’s fun! Then tell me, are you enjoying an expanded family gathering this year? Are you traveling to get there? Answer for a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card!

    I’m going home from a rehab center where I have been since I was related from the hospital after a complicated knee surgery. So traveling maybe 5 miles, happily!

    Amy! I’m so happy you get to spend the holiday at home! Hugs from me!

    Mary Ann! Enjoy!! Even though it’s only the three of you, and I know it’s hard to make a fuss with such a small group, make memories—and take pictures! Hugs!

    Due to job issues we can’t all get together this year but I’m cooking a big meal and will feed whoever is able to get here.

    Our family is small, so it will be the same as always… A nice small gathering…

    I had my 🇨🇦 thanksgiving in October. I just had my son and his girlfriend and her son over for prime rib since my ex was cooking a turkey.

    staying home alone – was invited to family, but don’t want to drive the 3+ hours & there may be a storm – invited to neighbors, but they all can’t be vaccinated yet, so playing it safe.

    Just a small gathering with my youngest son, however, his wife has the flu now, so maybe my and the old man will hit a Chinese restaurant or Denny’s. I’m pretty easy to please. Happy Thanksgiving!

    3:47 We plan on just going to family in the area. No traveling involved except for 20 minutes

    Finished puzzle in 6:39. Neat abstract picture of the holidays.

    Thanksgiving is more expanded but still restricted to core family (all who have been vaccinated)

    Christmas will probably be low key and secular.
