In a normal year, this weekend I could be flying to PA to see family and enjoy Thanksgiving with them. Well, that ain't happening. 2020 will be the first year ever to not go to see Dad. But, this little meme sums up life and holidays to me. Hope everyone is dialing down their ambitious family hugging plans. We shall see what the week brings. I'll give a grateful post on Wednesday
Meanwhile, here's a quick book review. All Adults Here by Emma Straub follows the Strick family. Astrid's the senior and matriarch of the family. Russell passed away and she has a secret love - Astrid the local salon owner. It's a small town, so if she goes public, that could be quite the news item.
Her son Elliott and his wife Wendy have twins - holy terrors at age three. Younger son Nicky and his wife Juliette don't know what to do with teen daughter Cecilia. After a school incident, they send her to live with Grandmom Astrid. And Astrid's daughter, Porter, feels her time clock ticking. She sleeps with her ex, Jeremy, but ultimately re-thinks a sperm donor.
That's quite the summary of small town and family drama. (A Thanksgiving gathering in 2020 would be a blessing of sorts if canceled. ) Just saying - some families could use some time apart.
And that's another week done. Enjoy your weekend everyone. Stay safe. Don't watch the news.
Take a fall walk in the leaves.
