Happy Thanksgiving!

It is Thanksgiving today here in Canada!  I hope that all of my Canadian bloggy friends are enjoying a wonderful long weekend with family and friends.

So what has been going around here?  Well, things are looking pretty harvest-y.  From flowers...

to ornamental pumpkins and gourds.

We had our turkey yesterday.  A nice little practice run for Christmas.  I even ventured into my kitchen long enough to make a pie!  Can't remember the last time that happened.  ;)

Then I shocked myself even further by making turkey soup.

(Hey, are any of my readers old enough to recognize the olive green pot circa 1975?  hee hee  The entire set was given to me second hand in the early 1980's from Robert's great-aunt.  This is the only one remaining and it is still my favourite pot!  Only small remnants of the olive green remain.)

So back to turkey talk.  It still amazes me how economical turkey is.  Tonight we are having Turkey Ann.  An easy recipe where you warm a mixture of leftover turkey, gravy and onions on thick garlic toast and then top it with cheese.  Yum!!

This weekend we also celebrated Diane turning 24!  My first born is not so little anymore. hee hee

With our weekend being so warm and sunny, Gus has been enjoying these last opportunities to warm himself on the balcony.  A toasty puppy he is!

The big guy is slowly on the mend.  Lady has been enjoying every moment of Rob relaxing on the sofa. She will miss him when he goes back to work next week.  His current job seems to be giving Lady head rubs at her demand.

The entire pack is loving that there always seems to be a big blanket on the sofa, as of late.  Doesn't get much better than this.  These pups have a tough life.  ;)

Needless to say, there hasn't been too much creative stuff going on.  I have been working on a couple of DT assignments but nothing that I can share yet. :(  Susan is coming over tomorrow and we plan on scrapping so hopefully I will have something to share soon.  I have some new Studio Calico papers that I just can't wait to cut into!  :)

Wishing you all a wonderful week with some scrappy time in it for you!

Happy Scrapping!!  Jen :)
