Thanks to some generous, loving people,
I have just experienced the most amazing Thanksgiving weekend.
It all began with a magically elegant
50th wedding anniversary party set at
The Boulevard Club
on the edge of Lake Ontario.
Congratulations Sam and Heidi.
Thank you Christian, Jean-Paul, Jonathan and Alexandra for graciously including us as you feted your parents.
Then a wonderful, lazy Sunday at home
just me, Brilliant Husband...
a glowing fire...
Up bright and early Monday for a full-on Thanksgiving feast with the family!
Thank you George and Paula!
The day finished with an hilarious evening with V., her sisters-in-law, daughter,
nieces, some delicious champagne and gooey, smelly cheeses.
Thank you John and Adri for our perfect room at Hotel Martini
Sarah and Katie-squared for the terrific old jokes and the gallons of laughter.
This morning, Victoria and I and Adri and Kate drank coffee around the dining room table before gathering ourselves for a brisk walk in the early fall sunshine.
Then it was back to the house for big mugs of hot tea, more of Adri's exquisite baking before whisking sister and niece off to the airport and back to British Columbia.
So very much to be thankful for.
