Canadian Thanksgiving is Just Around the Corner
I know we have been late/delayed in posting.
First my partner was ill and getting ready for the FOG (Festival of the Grape) in Oliver last weekend was time consuming.
The day before was cold and rainy but the festival day was glorious!!! Do I have any pictures of the events? The grape Stops? The other vendors? The music? The Attractions?
Unfortunately not. Our tent was in the back row and I was there by myself, so I did not get the chance to wander around or see the festivities.
However, the Oliver Chronicle has posted some great shots on their facebook page. Here are a couple.
I met a ton of great people and had a wonderful time.
Then it was my turn to get ill! At the Grand Forks Market on Tuesday, I could feel the cold virus taking over my body….the mega doses of vitamin C, the getting enough sleep and the echanisia were finally overcome and I was SICK!!!
I made Dave and the dogs a nice supper, enough to last 2-3 days and then
I turned into a zombie!
No canning, no pumpkin tart baking took place, just lots of sneezing, coughing and sleeping.
Today-Friday, I missed going to the Grand Forks Market!!! It is the first we have missed (except when we were at the Hill’s Garlic Festival).
We did not want to miss today – after all, Thanksgiving is Monday and it is traditionally a great Market.
TOMORROW though, we will be trying out the Penticton Market.
Stay tuned for some pictures from that (if I can find my camera)
