Turkey Disasters

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Columbus Day, both messages I should have passed on to you yesterday but I opted not to post, WTF right?  Actually I did not opt not to post but with a houseful and a holiday and weather that was crazy summer like, I just could not force myself to sit inside and edit.  I actually went swimming, that’s right swimming on October 12th and it was a beautiful day.
The weather was perfect Sunday and Monday and allowed us to enjoy the deck, pool and yard just one more weekend. It has been an awesome summer in Canada, even Nicholas commented that the weather turned nice end of April and it is now October, six whole months of summery conditions, makes the next few months almost bearable knowing that the snow and cold will be here for a bit but summer is always just around the corner.

Thanksgiving Dinner was Sunday and there were thirteen of us, what a fantastic dinner/day we had.  We even started with Craft Beer Flights on the deck, soaking up the sunshine followed by a great dinner, lots of wine and then afire and hot tub afterwards.  It was a beautiful weather weekend, but a little to nice…. and you ask how could it be too nice, well we expected the warm temperatures when the sun was out but what we did not expect was that the evening would not cool down at all,  no fall like evening so…….. we stored the left over turkey in the garage,( something we have done many times, in fact we stored the cooked, carved turkey in the garage Saturday night and it was fine, cool enough for storage).  Sunday night however the temps stayed at 14 cel ( 60ish F) so the garage never cooled down at all…

Went to get the Turkey yesterday for Hot Turkey Sandwiches and I could have cried…. it had gone bad so we have lots of stuffing and cranberries and potatoes and gravy …. but NO TURKEY.. so yesterday we had BBQ hot dogs and hamburgers ( cuz all the stores were closed) Yes people I am still crying over the fact that my awesome Hot Turkey did not happen.

Thanksgiving celebrations
We like to dress for dinner, nothing over the top but presentable I guess would be an appropriate title… I opted for my plaid dress but this time with leggings and suede boots. ( Here for previous), throw on some pearls and a suede jacket and i am set for fall.
