Cinnamon stick tea - yummy! I am cruising along on the paperwork - it's not hard stuff to do, just tedious. The frequent pauses for MMC breaks make it not so bad!

Hubby and I went to Wal-Mart earlier. I said that it is almost Canadian Thanksgiving. He said he wished we could celebrate it again this year like we did last year, but now that we have our building permit, we have to get everything out of the kitchen/den. There will be lots of restaurant food for us for a while! Hmm. I could order a turkey dinner at one of our hometown restaurants!

Is it not a good thing that items are sell already? I know I like the deals, but as a retailer it will benefit the bottom line that people are paying full price for items.
Hope you have a great day today!

Coach, Hubby and I celebrated it last year. I used that as a time to try new Thanksgiving recipes that I don't really get to use since everyone wants to have the same menu year-to-year. It was a blast! I will try to find my post from last year so you can see what we had! I do remember we had chocolate pumpkin cupcakes!

Coach, here is my post from last year #28286 regarding Canadian Thanksgiving. It was SO GOOD!!!

...At one of the doctor's offices, there was an OLD issue of Sunset magazine (November 2011). We decided to try the recipes from it for Monday because we have a set menu for the US Thanksgiving. Anyway, here's our menu (most recipes from the mag!): Brined Turkey (not from the mag, but we know this is good and can't stray from our regular recipe; we bought an eight pounder); Sage Gravy (our regular recipe); Wild Mushroom and Butternut Squash Bread Pudding; Fingerling Potatoes with Bacon Cream; Roasted Cauliflower and Shallots; Cranberry Sauce (store-bought); Homemade Rolls; Chocolate Chunk Pumpkin Cupcakes; and Pouilly-Fuisse White Burgundy (thanks to the recommendation by LaurieBear).

I can feel her pain. She is so conscientious, so this makes it extra hard on her!

She thought she was deleting old photos, but apparently deleted her weeks worth of video, instead.

She was brokenhearted and crying, and I almost cried because she was crying...lol. they're scrambling, trying to put together something fast, but she's still feeling like she let her friends down. bless her heart.

oh well. now ain't always, I guess.

I hope y'all have a great day!

I am with you on that, CAH. I can watch them all by myself if I have to!
