A November Wedding
Weather was beautiful in early November. I attended my first "event" since the pandemic started. Poor Don started having serious back issues and I had to go alone.
It was nice and and sort of odd going solo to a wedding. I haven't attended a wedding alone since 1978, when I caught my friend's bouquet... chatted with the groom's friend Don, then married him year later.
Stuck at Home
Don's bypass recovery (and added back issues) kept us pretty much stuck at home in November.
But we made good use. After 23 years in this house, we finally got around to making some changes.
By November 22, Don was willing to give travel a try. We headed for New Orleans to be with my sibs and their spouses for Thanksgiving.
After 20 months of pandemic (and 2 months of post surgery healing for Don) it felt wonderful to celebrate with family again!
We were able to dine out safely. (Vaccine cards required in Nola restaurants) And we feasted at home. Mostly it was just wonderful to catch up with each other, after such a long time.
Good Old New Orleans
We avoided the crowds and tricky logistics of the French Quarter, this time.
But we walked daily in the Garden District. What a treat to see the old homes, the decorations and a few sweet animals as well.
November ended much better than it began!
