LIFE ON THE LAKE.

Our days are winding down at the lake.  This is our last week on the lake.

The weather has been glorious!  Here we are last week in tees going for a ride.  In October in Canada in almost northern Ontario!  

My friend Mary makes these little hats that she has sold to a little boutique store in a town near us!  Baby hats are a big deal for grandmothers, so these sell quite quickly.  Cute or what?

The mornings on the lake can lead to such beautiful skies as the lake is still warmer than the air in the mornings, hence the mists that can be seen as the sun rises.  Such beauty is what makes living here worthwhile.  

We have just had our Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, our neighbours have participated in the second annual Pot Luck Thanksgiving Dinner at our table.  Will post photos later on this week, but oh my the food!

I basically have the turkey in the oven, and the rest is done by the friends and wonderful neighbours.  Helen (resident quilter teacher) makes the pies and she and her darling girl decorate the tables.  Every year she does something different, and this year she went Dollar Store shopping to show what can be done!  Fabulous table.

Kent and Kath did the veggies once again, which included roasted beets, and many root veggies with balsamic vinegar
as the added touch to the finish.  So very very yummy.  And a huge batch of mashed potatoes.

Mary made the gravy, which is so good to finish the plates.

So apple pie and pumpkin pies to finish the meal...what more could we ask for?  And we must not forget that we gave thanks for our blessings.   Ripping conversations with belly laughs were also included in the dinner!

Well daughter brought her boy to us, and we were happy to give thanks to have one grandchild at our table. 

  I finished a shawl to take to Florida for those cool evenings and wish it was her arms about me for the season.
