Happy Thanksgiving Canada!


I hope everyone is having a wonderful day, stuffing themselves with turkey and pumpkin pie :o) DH popped a small turkey in the oven yesterday and it filled the house with wonderful smells. But alas, no pumpkin pie for the Pumpkin :o( I think I might have to get one at the grocery store this week to satisfy that craving. It won't compare to homemade but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do. LOL! I did suggest going to Tim Horton's for one of their pumpkin spice donuts but that didn't go over well ;o)

After all the clean up (seriously, how do our mother's do it????), we drove to our nearby sand beach and took Duncan for a walk. It was so nice with the sun setting, the waves rolling in and not another human being in sight. DH got to meet the local fox cub. He's grown so much and looks really healthy. He's not that afraid of humans, which concerns me. This was a picture of him that I took in early August -


A few of you inquired about when I would show another picture of Birds & Berries so here is an updated picture -


I have been devoting my time to it and I'm pretty pleased with the progress. I find it much more interesting now that the greens and red/pinks are being added. I know I'm getting ahead of myself but I find myself debating whether to start the next bird on top or bottom. Decisions, decisions ;o)

I see that I have quite a few new Stalkers! I want to welcome you to the Pumpkin Patch :o) Please feel free to leave comments. I hope you'll stick around for Pumpkin Day because that will be coming up real soon and boy, did I ever go crazy with pumpkins this year! LOL!

Have a super Thanksgiving. Store-bought pumpkin pie can be quite tasty so enjoy!

Love how you can stroll in the 'wild'. Do foxes bite? (City girl here ;-)

Your stitching looks beautiful. So even!

Hope your day is wonderful, if you lived closer I have two pieces of pumpkin pie leftover from our meal that I would have been happy to share with you! And it was my first attempt at homemade (filling) and it turned out well if I do say so myself!

Happy Turkey Day! I love making pies, too bad you don't live closer or I would make you one or two!!! I'm looking forward to sweet potatoes, stuffing, homemade gravy and cranberries....mmmmmm, yum.

I love your sweet bird he is really pretty. Great job!

It sounds like you had a fabulous day :) I can't wait for turkey day here!

I saw something on the news this morning and thought about you. They showed a clip of a race in NS yesteday. People hollow out giant pumpkins and then get into them and paddle across a lake. It looked like a total hoot!!

That little fox is so cute. We still see the occasional one around here but ours are very skiddish and disappear as soon as they see you.

Great work on your B&B. I love birds, our chickadees are back full force in our feeders.

Would have loved to have turkey for Thanksgiving but all the ones at the grocery store were huge, so had roast beef and yes, pumpkin pie. Hopefully next time we come to visit I will be able to make you one.

{{{Love and Hugs}}}

Happy Thanksgiving, Cathey! I am pouting that you didn't get the pumpkin spice donut as a consolation dessert. Loved the cartoon. That picture of Duncan is adorable.

Birds and berries looks great. Your friendly fox is so sweet - I hope he doesn't get too brave though.

A very belated Happy Thanksgiving to you.

There was no pumpkin pie in my Thanksgiving celebrations either. It made for a very sad me.
