It's Thanksgiving in Canada this coming weekend (October 12th)
so I thought I'd start off this post with my Thanksgiving quilt.
The poem embroidered on the pictures is by Ralph Waldo Emerson and goes like this:
"For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends . . ."
We thank Thee.
We were able to spend last weekend in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia,
about 4 hours' drive from home.
The area is rich with vineyards and wineries and the grape harvest was being celebrated.
Here are pictures of some of the vineyards:
Grapes being loaded into boxes before being made into wine.
And some local fall colour.
