Sunday Salon: Thanksgiving Weekend

Sunday Salon

It’s another long weekend. Wonderful things long weekends, but I haven’t been reading much. I have been watching a lot of TV.

In any case, I finished Gone with the Wind this week, rewatched the movie, and the movie will be up on November 8th.

Books to read next include Guy de Maupassant’s Bel-Ami in the original French, The Song of Achilles, and many more. Being a reader is a lifelong job, and there is always more work to do it seems!

I am having turkey with the family, and for weekend baking, I am making a blueberry pie. I may take a photo of this one since I am using a cookie cutter top crust.

Speaking of food and books, I bought three cookbooks the other day, and now that my cookbook collection is starting to be notable, I will need to do a post about it. I really like going through recipe books. I love food and I love books so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I read about food and like to cook, but I rarely get to cook or bake nowadays.

Now, I am off for a hike in the woods. The best time of year in this part of Canada.

Have a good week everyone!

    It’s amazing what you learn every day! I had no idea Thanksgiving in Canada was this early 😀 I was confused for a few minutes (forgot you were in Canada). Happy Thanksgiving!

      Hi Geoff! Canadians are northern people so winters are long and harvests short. Ha. Thanks for the wishes and I hope you have a great week!
