So what exactly is Thanksgiving anyway? Is it the long weekend where you close up the cottage and bring the boat home for the winter? A final lawn cutting or planting some bulbs around garden? I like how our Canadian Thanksgiving is in October and not the November date down south. It’s a great weekend to visit the many markets around here – especially the St. Jacob’s Market. What a place! The colours this time of year are beyond words. The vegetables – now nearly fully ripened with their reds and oranges and yellows. And every little farm along the road is selling pumpkins of every shape and size and texture. We bought 2-little pie pumpkins and a few squash from a farmer near Conestogo. What wonderful little towns we have around here just literally minutes from our front door – quaint shops and tasty restaurants with menus that haven’t changed much (other than the prices) in the last 50 years. Brian always orders the pig tails and a big draft beer – he’s such a guy.
Anyway have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
