Tonight I had my sewing friends over for dinner and we had a great time. On the menu was curried pumpkin soup, ham and spinach quiche, salad, appetizers, apple cider, wine and for desert we had pumpkin roll. I love getting together with these ladies. I took a couple of pictures so you could see their happy faces.
Enjoying the Curried Pumpkin Soup.

Table is set waiting for their arrival.

Such a gorgeous morning to go for a walk with the dogs back to our bush. I just love this time of year, the smells, the colors, and the cool temperatures. I took a couple of pictures of some sights on our walk.
Our firewood for heating this winter.
Needs to split and stacked.

Kit loves to get into the pictures.

The entrance to the trail.

I am loving the fall colors this time of year.

Happy Thanksgiving here in Canada. A gorgeous weekend and the colors are just spectacular. This is by far my favourite time of year. Pumpkins, gourds, fall mums and Turkey dinner with a the fixins.
Last night was spent with friends enjoying a delicious turkey dinner. I just had to take a couple of pictures of the table setting. Just beautiful!!! 

Lovely table setting

My friend Sandie took this picture of me enjoying the day!

It was a great day for the first day of having my little shop open. The weather wasn't the greatest but it was cozy inside the little Granary. Kit was all tuckered out after her first day of being the "Shop supervisor" I made her a little bed from an old grain sack.

While standing at the sink doing dishes, I heard this loud crack and I saw our old tree come down. Thank goodness it fell away from the house or it would have been a disaster. More firewood for next winter.
