lovely weekend

I keep following all the posts and its fun.
Not much happens here so I do not post as often
I would like to thank those who gave me great answers to my indecision on whether to go to the day course with Pamela Allen. After reading the suggestions I was beginning to look forward to having a fun day. Well as life goes there is usually a but.....
One of the specialist that John needs to see is coming to Pembroke , you guessed it. the same day as the course.
So from indecision to yeah a great day coming to oh no I cant go.
Guess another time will happen. Need to do the important stuff first.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving weekend all those who are celebrating
See you next time.

Thanksgiving Turkey

Since I deleted the weather posting, I feel okay making another one. Thanksgiving week-end is coming up here in Canada this week-end. For years, the tradition here has been to supply a turkey dinner at noon Sunday or Monday and have whatever family can come from wherever and help with the splitting of our winter's wood. We rent a hydrolic log splitter that goes both ways and cuts quickly. The turkey runs about on a farm 4 or 5 miles to the east of us here in the country and when himself and I went to pick it up from the farm, all 29 lbs, this morning, we were directed down to the 'green' barn. So, off I set in my car down a narrow track that turned into a field, two gates were opened and lo and behold two well-fed donkeys stood there. Plus....four horses of a very curious nature. Annie, the pup, was in her crate in the back of the car and she's horse and cow obsessed...lots of barking from the back of the car when she sees them in the fields...very brave of her. Hope was loose in the back; windows open. The horses stood right in front of the Pathfinder and wouldn't move, had to be shooed off so I could pull up to the barn. The white pony stuck its head into the doorway of the barn while the larger horses stuck their heads inside the car. Annie shut up pretty quickly. Trying to back out, same thing, horses wouldn't move and one was chewing something on the back of my car. One last horse's head inside the open window on my side of the car left me disolved in laughter as I imagined my city friends going to the super market and buying their Thanksgiving turkey from a pristine white meat counter. I hope I can remember those exact images as I grow older...they'll bring a smile to my face for sure.

This & that

Thanks Kathi for the info. I had never heard of quilt university. I'll have to check into it.
We have been busy here. Went to Daytona on Friday about noon. Took down a new bed, put it together. For the rental condo. The weather was wonderful, cool breeze, but warm sun. I got up early Sat. morning and walked on the beach and watched the sun come up. The wind picked up as the day went on, so we couldn't drive on the beach, the tide was too high.
Got home Sat. evening, and on Sunday went to the NFL football game. Our team lost, but we still had a good time.
Now back to the real world. Have to pick up the house, newspapers everywhere, dirty laundry, etc. Finally a few days of 70's and maybe 80, cool enough to go pull some weeds, which are overgrowing the flowers.
Hope everyone is doing OK. JANE-how is the weather up there?
