I had a nice little vacation, recently, and I spent the majority of the time in Ottawa visiting my family.
It was Canadian Thanksgiving. I don’t eat meat, so we made some yummy hummus (which I also used for great sandwiches all week). Please note that I added a little garnish of cilantro, made to look like a maple leaf (I love doing cheesy things like that):
I had a chance to visit with a dear friend of mine from high school. I haven’t seen her YEARS and I finally got to meet her lovely husband. While visiting with her, we had a short walk along the Rideau Canal. The fall colours in Ottawa are spectacular (Edmonton friends, our fall colours are plain boring and drab compared to what Ottawa gets):
My brother helped me make a thread spool holder (something else I’ll post more about later) and those fools allowed me to use power tools without adult supervision! I’m happy to report that I still have all my fingers:
Other then spending loads of time with my darling niece, that pretty much sums up my visit. It was grand and I wish I could have stayed longer.
