Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in Canada - we don't tend to make a big ta do about it. Growing up we did - as it was a big thing that all 6 kids and spouses and children attended. Now we don't do that anymore - we used to all get together at Mom & Dad's house - now that they are gone - we don't get together as often. Kinda sad - but we are more scattered about and no one really had the space to get everyone over - I suppose we do now - but I don't have a dining room set and don't plan on getting one - so I don't know how I would seat more than 6. Maybe I will try for a post-holiday get-together in January and just not serve a sit down meal.
Yesterday was 27C here - gorgeous weather! Today it is only 15C - Brrrr! I went out grocery shopping this morning - I should have brought a jacket.
K is headed to Home depot a couple cities (Ajax) away to get this desk & matching bookcase for J's room. The two home depots nearby are all sold out.
I really should be washing all the fabric I have bought recently - I just love looking at it - it is kind of like when you were a kid and got all nice new clean school supplies - it was almost too nice to use. And I wish I could just use this stuff without washing it but I know I shouldn't. It is just a hassle to test each one for colour-fastness.
If anyone has any suggestions on how I can use all those lengths (and there are several) of lace I got at the thrift shop yesterday - please tell me - I bought them because they looked so nice and were cheap but I haven't the first clue as to what to do with them.
