I had a lovely ride for coffee up to Caledon East to my usual stop at Gabe’s Country Bake Shop.  As I pedal north, I anticipate the coffee and think about what I will choose to eat with it.    The sky was blue, and while the leaves were changing, there is still a lot of green in this area.


This tree has managed to hang on despite significant damage to produce some lovely orange leaves.


I returned home for a couple of lazy hours, then cleaned up and headed to Lara’s for Thanksgiving dinner.  I decided to do some family pictures as it has been a year since we last did a portrait of both families and my Dad.  Since it was such a beautiful day we decided to do the pictures outside, however, the sun was getting low and was too bright to face or even have to our sides.  I had brought my flash, but unfortunately, had forgotten my lens hood.  Oh well, I did the best I could with what I had at hand.

My nephew Ryan built a fort (or shanty as his father calls it) out of flat screen TV boxes in the basement and has been sleeping in it for a few weeks.  Isn’t he cute?

Dig in!  It looks great.
