Despite the business of these days we had to have a celebration today – for Thanksgiving and for DH’s birthday tomorrow. The dinner menu was lake trout – caught last night, potatoes from the garden, yellow beans, asparagus and Brussels sprouts from the grocery store, homemade sauerkraut – a gift from our neighbour to whom DH took potatoes this morning, pickled beets – made by DD # 1, and a delicious chocolate cake with sliced strawberries for dessert. All exceedingly yummy. Here is DH with his one candle, the only one I could find in the house, and Dave, our guest from outside.
The GK were raucous as ever …
DGS with the same kind of underclothes as someone wearing a kilt might sport….
And DGD with her gaudy Halloween-ready makeup…
We managed to get our potatoes and carrots dug the other day. We are almost ready for the winter that threatens us daily….
I need to show off some giveaway gifts I’ve received lately. Firstly, from the lovely Sue at Quilt Times – I was so excited to win a copy of her book. When I was at the retreat last weekend almost everyone in the room came over and took a look at the book (and asked if it was part of the present exchange – NO WAY). It is fabulous!
And I won this cute fat quarter from Barbara in her Fun Fact Friday Freebie.
I made this bag for one of my partners in the Goodie Swap. It makes a sweet little bag.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends. It is election day in the Yukon tomorrow and I’ll be working for about eighteen hours. Exciting but tiring.
