In one word..AWESOME!! There was 22 of us, everyone brought a dish, some brought more than 1. The food was outstanding. I hear so much about the Green Bean Casserole that seems to be a regular dish at all of our US friends Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Well I finally got to taste it and it was delicious. There was all the stuff I love, whipped potatoes, stuffing, sweet potato casserole, turkey, ham, beets. Now I know beets are something that some people would probably pooh pooh at, but I absolutely love them and don’t get to eat very often. Ken is not a vegetable guy and beets, well, you can just imagine. These were wonderful. I ate far, far too much but oh it was so good.
Today it has been raining all day long. But seeing as it’s the very first time it has rain in the month we’ve been here, that’s ok. I do love the sound of rain on the roof of the rig. So soothing and relaxing. I was going to BBQ steaks tonight but of course Mr. Weber is sitting outside where it’s pouring but I do have a grill so I had to dig it out and literally dust it off and that’s what I’m going to use to grill the steaks.
Jackson is a goofy guy. Quite the comic and like several goldens, he ‘smiles’. I sometimes have to tell people that he’s not baring his teeth, he is really smiling. I finally got a picture of him in goofy action and actually smiling.
I don’t know if you heard about the terrible ice storm that went through Ontario. It was very, very bad. It started last Friday, the 20th, and there are some people that still don’t have power. My nephew being one of them. Fortunately his father-in-law had a generator which he brought over for them. The storm covered a huge area and thousands of people were without power, my son was without power for almost 2 days, and fortunately again, he has a generator. My daughter and our house (we live only a couple miles apart) was only out for about 6 hours. We were sooooooo lucky. My next door neighbour took a couple pictures of our house. I think our birch tree is toast.
Well it’s another rainy day here, (I started the blog yesterday). Dull and gloomy day.
Until later..take care.
