Thanksgiving Confession

Yes, I want to confess...

We were all excited about Thanksgiving meal. David loves to cook and he is always in charge of any Holiday meal. This time was no different. He made a list, did grocery shopping, took turkey out of freezer and put it in our fridge. Thursday morning I took turkey out to spice it up and cook but ... it was hard as a rock. We were in deep trouble... We needed a bird fast... The only place that was open was Walmart. We ran there but every turkey was frozen... we decided to buy a large 8 lb chicken... It was cooked. We had homemade stuffing, mashed potato, mashed sweet potato, corn casserole, corn bread, pumpkin bread, gravy, pumpkin cheese cake, you name it, we had it. So, we decided that we were to call our Thanksgiving chicken "THE BIRD".  So... the Bird was served, it was golden brown and juicy and was well received. 

Conclusion: Thank you Walmart for making our Thanksgiving possible!

Trip to Niagara

Many of you already know that David (dh) and I went to Niagara-on-the-Lake in October. We like to go there for 4-5 days so we can spend time just for us. No agenda, no plans. We go to the Welland Canal, watch one of the drawbridges open and close, watch Lift Bridge going up and down (see pic below), watch ship go through the lock.

this Lift Bridge lifts the road for ships, WOW!

Here is the Falls - view from Rainbow Bridge

Also, we went to see "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" that was played as a part of Shaw Festival.

And ... everything would be great ... however I was sad. This is why: after all our luggage was placed in the car, David set me down and told me that he was told by his family doc that he had a lump on his thyroid. I was not sure if I wanted to go but he was looking forward to the trip so we went.

Upon our return, he had blood test and ultrasound. Both tests were negative! Woo Hoo!

I went from this
