Colossians 3:16 (King James Version)
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
"Not only does God command us to pray, He permits us to pray. Prayer is both a must and a may, an obligation and a gift."
— Ben Patterson— Charles Henley
Thanksgiving Day in the COVID era was different than normal. Of course Frank, Lue, and Danny couldn’t come. Ron and Fran stayed home as did Laura and Twila. Missy’s four and David’s four were here. Tari, Mike, Ann, Emaline, and Rick. We had the same amount of food for a lot less people. Rick filled in for Ron as the chief carver. We sent food out for the Wilsons. Lue said she ate a little but is still very sick and Frank has cold-like symptoms.
Lue was very sick today. Since two of her coworkers tested positive for COVID-19, she called her doctor, had a tele-med appointment and then went for a test at the Clarion Hospital. They called her later in the afternoon, telling her that she was positive. So Lue, Frank, and Danny are in quarantine.
David, Janna, Brianna, and Megan got here around 6 pm. Of course, we ordered from the Pub.
Today’s low temperature of 26.6° was the lowest temperature in Clarion since March 22 when it was 23.4°.
I have all the tables set and the pans ready for Thursday. I hadn’t cleaned very well for some time, so about a week ago, I began to carefully clean every room in the house. I finished today.
I talked to BeeDee this afternoon on the phone for about 45 minutes. She seems to be doing well. Of course she is tired of the restrictions that the COVID has placed on her. She’s not alone, is she?
Today was Danny’s 15th birthday. Lue made him stuffed shells and a chocolate cake with chocolate icing. Tari and I went there for dinner. His parents got him a 58” TV for his present. He will primarily use it for gaming.
As I was getting back home, Coni Kifer called and said they were taking Mel (Gene) to the ER via ambulance. He got back home. It turns out he has pneumonia.
My second COVID-19 test also came back negative.
Today was Hannah’s 12th birthday. I took her gift over in the afternoon. Her parents got her an Apple Watch. Their fence is done and the dogs love running free over the entire backyard. It looks really nice.
The Steelers won and are 10-0.
The Clarion Volleyball team won the State Championship. It was their second state championship title. Their first was in 2012. Today they beat Marian Catholic in three straight sets. They ended up with a 24-0 record. They only lost one set the entire season. That is remarkable!
I spent a lot of the day getting ready for Thursday. About mid-morning I ran over to O’Neils and then to Knox to pick up the pies. On the way back, I thought I might as well stop off at Tom’s Sales to check on the status of my leaf blower and snow blower. The door was padlocked with a sign that read closed indefinitely, thanks to all for you past business.
We had strong winds this afternoon and evening. Some gusts were near 50 mph.
David, Janna, and the girls got here around 5pm. I met them at the Pizza Pub. It was packed!
I slept in a little this morning and then realized I had Thanksgiving jet lag; so in the afternoon, I disappeared for an hour or two. Ashley and Kinley came over to visit for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Brian came over later on. Frank, Lue, Danny, Jared, Hannah, and Brody came over for supper. Janna did a lot of cleaning and putting things back where they belong today.
Sherri’s cough (cold) is worse today. Steve and Gayle visited for about an hour in the late morning. Jared and Missy came over for lunch. I did very little else today except I started to catch up on some recorded CSI episodes.
