We celebrated National Pumpkin Day yesterday. We shared a wonderful slow-cooker roast beef and onions; with whipped potatoes, gravy, mixed vegetables (and chicken strips for my grandchildren). I learned that my future daughter-in-law doesn’t like cinnamon and my grandson doesn’t like apple pieces in his cake. My son brought 4 large pumpkins in after supper and we made jack-o-lanterns.
What a wonderful day my sister and I had at Point Pelee National Park. When we came upon this piece of driftwood she insisted on taking this picture of me with her cell phone. I’ve always said the camera doesn’t matter as much as the content and composition of a photo.
I’m so lucky to have 3 wonderful sisters. We’ve gone through some very tough times together and I am looking forward to many years of quality time to take walks together.
Spirit Day is an annual LGBTQ awareness day observed on the third Thursday in October. Started in 2010 by Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan, it was initially created in response to a rash of widely publicized bullying-related suicides of gay school students in 2010, including that of Tyler Clementi.
The Thanksgiving long weekend is fast approaching in Canada. This week’s weather looks perfect. Highs of about 18C and sunshine. An excellent week to go hiking or kayaking to perhaps catch some of the wonderful fall colours. A wonderful weekend for a wedding, if COVID-19 restrictions aren’t tightened again this week.
