Our Weekend


After some busy, full and fun weekends, this one was the one I was looking forward to and it didn't disappoint.

It was slow. There was hiking, lots of hiking. There was an afternoon spent with friends knitting. There were quiet evenings reading. There was tea. There was a little visit with my brother and his family. And there was time to breathe, to think, to really focus on the meaning of this weekend...Thanksgiving.

And with one more day on this lovely long weekend we plan to hit the trails for another hike, maybe enjoy a picnic by the water and then chill at home, together, reading, playing and crafting.

Wishing all my fellow Canadians a Happy Thanksgiving.

How was your weekend?
