A Thanksgiving Getaway

Don't we all need a break now and then? A break in the action. A change of scenery. A getaway.

When I think of a traditional Thanksgiving, thoughts of "home" come to mind. Sitting around the dinner table with family and feast. But I discovered this year that the Thanksgiving break can be a perfect time for a family getaway. Quite unexpectedly, a dear friend offered to let us stay at her lake house last week. Nothing like a little spontaneity to break the routine!

It was cold last week! And I don't want any of my northern readers to roll their eyes. It dropped to 28 degrees at night and only inched into the 40s during the day! Maybe that's why the fish weren't biting. But we had a good time anyway. We played Scrabble, watched movies and the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, and cooked a traditional Thanksgiving meal together. With the boys in college now, it was some much-needed family time.

Where do you go to get away?

If I were a fish and the temperature was 40 degrees, I would stay in, play Scrabble and watch movies too.

Happy belated Thanksgiving!
