This beautiful pheasant stalked around my yard this afternoon. What a gorgeous splash of colour he added to my day!
I had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We had a family gathering at my mom's on Saturday...we stuffed ourselves with free range chicken and a delicious assortment of veggies fresh from the garden, topped off with squash pie - oh MY - what a feast!! And in addition to an abundance of food, there was also much merriment and frivolity!
After church yesterday, Moira and I headed out to the camper. Dave popped in town to get Sara, and they joined us a little later. Valerie and Mark arrived in the meantime, followed shortly thereafter by Kaleigh and Sarah. We cooked pizza and pork tenderloin over the firepit, and had a grand old time. Another crew of campers had a massive bonfire going down by the campground's rec centre, so we joined their revelry for a bit, and then drifted back to our own smaller fire to end off the evening.
And now I am home, feeling the very epitome of that "tired but happy" cliche...and filled to the brim with thanksgiving!!
