Happy Thanksgiving!

Best wishes to you and all your loved ones for a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I am so grateful today for my blessings, my healthy son, my semi-organized apartment, and my little red car, still going strong after 15 years! I also feel so fortunate to live in Virginia, a beautiful state.

I am also saying a prayer for those who have lost loved ones recently and hope that they soon find comfort and peace.

It’s a day off and if you want to just relax at home, there’s nothing wrong about that! Staying off the roads is safe, too, because a lot of people drink at Thanksgiving.

Here is a gratitude meditation for today.

If you start getting cabin fever, know…

  • The weather will be nice for a walk.
  • Lots of good new movies in the theaters, including Steven Spielberg’s semi-autobioraphical film, The Fabelmans.
  • The light displays at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna, Cameron Run in Alexandria and Bull Run in Manassas will be open tonight.
  • The National Gallery of Art is open
  • The Smithsonian Museums are open
  • The U.S. Botanic Garden is open
  • The Zoo (in DC) is open but you need to get a free pass online on its website
  • Some stores are open, including most drug stores.

Some last-minute dining options include…

  • Cracker Barrel (locations in Sterling and Manassas); veggie options, too.
  • Bob Evans (there is a location in Chantilly).
  • Giant Food is also selling a hot roasted turkey breast (while supplies last) for about $10.
