We wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving 2020 and hope you get to enjoy lots of delicious food, even if it is without family and friends in these strange times.
Of course, Thanksgiving is the traditional time to give thanks for all we have. We have a lot to be thankful for – family, friends, home, and our health. The day will be a little different though as we visit with family and friends via Zoom and Skype calls.
I’m also thankful for all my online friends and everyone who reads this blog. You inspire me and enrich my life. Without you, there would be no point in writing about what’s happening in our efforts to be more self-sufficient and sustainable.
We have something extra to be grateful for this year, we decided to sell Bramblestone Farm and move to a more temperate climate. So, in the midst of Covid-19, we left the goats, chickens, honey bees, and farm and moved to sunny Hilton Head Island.
I will definitely miss the farm (especially my beloved goats) but back health issues made it nearly impossible for me to care for it properly anymore.
I plan to continue writing about our adventures on the farm and all we learned, as well as our adventures at our new location. We still plan on gardens and honey bees and will continue our efforts in self-sufficiency and sustainability. Perhaps just with a focus on how to accomplish our goals as older folks.
It is quite beautiful here, so in addition to giving thanks during this holiday, I find it helpful to make time every day to think about the things I’m grateful for and give thanks. It helps me keep a positive attitude and appreciate the beautiful world around us. I know it can be trying in these difficult times.
Happy Thanksgiving in 2020 Friends! Please Stay Safe.
