Man, I sound like such a white lady. Who says blog my Friday?
So yes, this morning I took the kids to an apple picking orchard and hay filled, corn maze play-land called Froot To Go. We played, mazed, hayed, and frooted with friends. I really wanted to pick up one of their apple pies from the bakery for Thanksgiving dinner this weekend.. but then I remembered I don't like apple pie. Buying one would only encourage people to keep offering me some even though I've had 28 years to try and like some, but don't. Yes, even with vanilla ice cream. Butter tarts too. No I don't understand why they're related. You see the dilemma.
Actually I was carting 3 kids to the car, two were asleep and one covered in hay.. so that's my real reason for not buying what was likely a fantastic pie for everyone but me.
My grandfather left on Wednesday for his annual week-long hunting trip up North.. so far North it takes two days to get there. Sometimes even I forget how big Canada is when we just call everything upwards "north".. and I live here. Anyhow the orchard would likely be the end of the fun but I thought since it was such fabulous day out that visiting my grandmother was a good idea. We had lunch, and it wasn't bad at all.. she was pretty happy to see us. After that I was honestly tired BUT I headed over to my cousins house instead of pack it in for the day, again. We got to hang out which is a serious work-week treat for me and Botson Cream donuts were involved. You kind of have to know all the people involved in my day to understand how fun it was but you don't really need to understand to agree that being tired from fun is the best kind. Totally awesome way to start the long weekend which involves pie I do like (pumpkin) and massive amounts of turkey.. and people to eat it with of course :)
Happy Turkey weekend to my fellow Canadians!
