thanksgiving....

tomorrow
is
thanksgiving
and i am
loving
this weekend...
a short family road trip friday night
ending with a late supper at east side marios
chocolate and chips and a movie
with the kids last night
and today we are going picking apples
{and maybe trying my
inexperienced
hand at apple pie...maybe}
tomorrow
turkey at my parents
with all the fixin's and all the family...
the sun is shining,
i am down two more pounds,
i bought a shirt last night
that i love, love, love...
{with the unexpected help of two
males who were helping their mother shop...
when i came out of the dressing room
to look in the mirror
they proclaimed, " oh...you HAVE
to get that shirt...very nice...try
going up a size, that material may shrink}
{oh...
and when i went to pay,
the clerk told me that the two guys
picked out some jewelry
for the "girl trying on the brown shirt"
to look at...}
{my face was 3 shades of red.}

the house is almost finished
and we succeeded in not telling anyone
yet...
we are trying to keep it a secret until
next weekend...heh....we'll see.
well.
this started as just a happy thanksgiving
but turned out much longer...
i know most of my readers
don't seem to be canadian
{except i do see someone from my island
showing up regularly...big wave!!}
but happy thanksgiving to those
who are celebrating...
and happy weekend to everyone else!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. We're heading off to Cirque du Soleil then to my parents for the big turkey feed.

Good luck with the pie. Pie pastry isn't my thing...

it was thanksgiving for me too- a holiday i love but this year things felt so crazy i almost overlooked it- maybe i should do a post thanksgiving entry- i felt i missed out on the spirit of the holiday due to chaos! i never want to forget to be grateful. so, thanks for reminding me and for the beauty fall photos
