It's Thanksgiving in Canada

As Canada's short growing season comes to a close, the farmers' markets have their final sales and close up their booths -- except for the pumpkin purveyors.

This morning, for the first time since last spring, I wanted to huddle under the duvet rather than get up and ferry my summer tunics to the basement in exchange for the warm winter tops which have slept away the summer in the plastic storage tub.

Younger daughter prepared dinner rolls for the very first time -- from scratch. I spent the morning making my pumpkin pies -- also from scratch. Elder daughter roasted the organic chicken, and the Resident Fan Boy took care of the vegetables.

Time to feast and try to ignore what's going on south of the border and the oncoming winter.
