Gobble Gobble

This weekend is the Canadian Thanksgiving.  It is a time to celebrate the bounty of the Harvest and enjoy it with family.  It is my favorite holiday of the year. 
There is no commercialism - decorations are generally from the earth - there is no crazy mad rush to shop for gifts that people don't need - All that matters is being with family and eating!

And that is what I did today - EAT and EAT some more.  I could hardly lift my over-stuffed butt off the sofa to make this post!  LOL

I usually try to make a special breakfast when it is a holiday so this morning we started with Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon.   Then the main event - Roast Turkey, mashed potatoes, squash, turnip and carrots in a brown sugar glaze and cranberry sauce.  Not the real kind - the yucky lumpy kind ------we like the jellied version in the can - you know the one that comes out in a big plop in the bowl.  LOL    Yes, we are real connoisseurs!    And of course, pumpkin pie.

Ugggh, I felt like a big lump when we were finished so I forced myself to go for a little walk around the local cemetery.  The sun was just starting to drop.   Here are a few photos.
I hope you all had a Thankful Day!

  1. Kim, your pictures are so good. You shoot like a pro. I'm still struggling with my camera. It is so complicated and I'm having some problems with retrieving my photos for my blog so I need to learn more.

    Your Thanksgiving dinner is so tempting. We're having ours tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving Kim.

  2. Kim, how in the world did you ever have enough energy to head out for an afternoon stroll after making breakfast and a lovely holiday dinner, I would have needed a nap for sure! Lovely photos, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  5. I too would have curled up on the sofa for a thanksgiving nap. But I bet a walk felt better.
    Now do you go right into christmas shopping or do you get a brake untill after halloween?
    Thank you for taking time out of your holiday to visit my blog. I was happpy to share all the rugs. I think they all deserve a blue ribbon we know how much work goes into them.

  6. Happy Thanksgiving Kim! Makes me want turkey for dinner. I might just see if I can find one this week or should I wait until the end of November when we celebrate Thanksgiving in the US? Turkey isn't just for Thanksgiving you know!

    Beautiful pictures! I do love the colors of the Autumn trees right now. I took a few yesterday and today that I'll be posting soon.

    Have a Great Week!
