Canadian Thanksgiving

Well, I've been away for a few days, celebrating our Canadian Thanksgiving with friends and family. And what a great weekend it was!

It started out with a visit to Newmarket, Ontario where our dear friends Tom and Connie invited us to stay with them a couple of days. Of course our first meal there had to be Swiss Chalet. We took a lovely country ride to see the fall colours and take some pics. It was just relaxing and nice to not be rushed, and be able to take in nature. Then on Sunday morning, early, we headed for Whitby where we sang at Whitby Community Church. Then off for lunch with friends and family.

Thanksgiving Monday, we enjoyed a FABULOUS dinner at my daughter's home. I was thrilled that one of my daughters baked special sugar-free desserts (with me in mind). Everyone got to enjoy the pumpkin-ginger pie... so creamy and yummy. There was also apple pie and regular pumpkin (for those who don't have a problem with sugar).

The ride back to Michigan was far too long because of a flat tire. It seemed to take forever for the tow truck to reach us, and an even longer time for them to switch the tires.

Now that I'm back home, I'm ready to get back into cardmaking. I have several ideas rolling around in my mind. And now that Thanksgiving is over, it's Countdown to Christmas!
