Well it's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, and I must say I have a lot of things to be thankful for.
I have a loving family, who in the scheme of things are pretty healthy.
We have a lovely home and enough food on our table.
I have a very supportive husband who provides for me and lets me stay at home to look after the house.
I have friends who care about me and I care about them.
All in all I have a lot to be thankful for. So a Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians out there.
This poem was on The Simple Things blog and I thought it was very appropriate:
Thank God for dirty dishes
They have a tale to tell
While other folks go hungry
We are eating very well
With home, health & happiness
We shouldn’t want to fuss
For by this stack of evidence
God’s very good to us.
Now to the weather. We are having some gorgeous Fall weather here. As yet we haven't turned on our heating. Now that's not to say we haven't had some cool nights and mornings. We had frost earlier on in the week, but once the sun comes out it warms the house up nicely.
However I know this weather will not last, and I know one day it will be lovely, then the next the temperature will drop like a stone and that will be it until next May. I must admit one thing I miss about Britain is the seasons. They have more definitive seasons over there. Here its either hot or freezing cold. Spring is over in a flash. Fall is a lot better, at least we have a couple of months of fall here, its my favourite time of year in Canada.
I love the crisp mornings, there's a freshness in the air. I love the changing leaves on the trees, the colours are stunning. Fall also means apple pies, pumpkins and bowls of soup. I took a couple of photos of some trees a short walk away from where we live. I hope you enjoy the colours like I do. As before you know it those trees will have dropped their leaves and will be covered in snow. That reminds me, we must look for a snow blower, we're getting too old to shovel snow!!
This tree is more vibrant in person.
Here is another tree just around the corner from that other one.
