Pumpkins and a Daytrip

DH and I had a one day play-cation Friday and went on a long thrifting drive. Great fall weather, fairly empty highway, great sunrise, fall colours and sunshine along the highway, some nice chat with people we met, a good time for us to share uninterrupted visiting, a bit of rain the last hour from home.

Heading home we stopped at a favourite fruit and vegetable stand, decked out for Halloween with their own produce.

Hilltop Gardens Farm is near Spences Bridge BC. Thanks to the owner for giving permission to share.

I bought honey made in Ashcroft and Hilltop Gardens Farm Ambrosia Apples, Roma tomatoes, just picked cantaloupe and was given some garlic with a "Happy Thanksgiving". 

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in Canada. Last weekend we had our Thanksgiving Dinner with DS and DGS. Then we decided to have a 2nd Thanksgiving Dinner on the 12th (Monday), I love turkey dinner, turkey sandwiches and turkey soup.

Every year when I write my pumpkin post I add one of my favourite photos from 2012 (DGS was 9). This always makes me smile.

Thinking Happy Halloween and happy carving and pumpkin guts.

Canadian Thanksgiving Greetings to my Blogging Friends.
