The entire state of Illinois is back to Tier 3, with the governor even mandating restrictions on family Thanksgiving celebrations (no more than groups of 10 to gather indoors). Restaurants & bars are closed for dining in and stores are limiting how many people can be inside. Hubs, my Type A guy, is already bored.
We were invited to a dinner on Thursday with our friends, but I think we'll be staying home & celebrating Thanksgiving with the kids via video instead. I'm currently fighting a sinus infection and on the off-chance I've contracted coronavirus, I definitely don't want to spread it. (Note: I get sinus infections on the regular--there is nothing different about how I'm feeling now to indicate it's anything other than a sinus infection, but obviously I don't want to risk anyone's health.) I have a fun event planned for hubs, that I am hoping he'll enjoy, and it's something we can do while we're on video--decorating sugar cookies for Christmas. He won't last long (and he'll be wanting to watch some games) but I think he'll have fun with it for a while, and it'll help pass some of the time. I had suggested earlier to him that we make ravs for Italian Christmas Soup (I believe one of my first posts on this blog was about ravs!) but hubs pointed out that we still have plenty in the freezer that we haven't used yet. So, why not holiday cookies that we can share with our neighbors? We had talked about a drink & paint kind of a thing, but I think I'll save that for another time.( Collapse )
