A lovely holiday.

It was the perfect holiday weekend to celebrate the season of Thanksgiving and what was fall.  It was a pleasant and full day filled with family, a feast, blueberry pie and pumpkin cheesecake, and just as my heart desired, were the dusting of snow across the lawn.

Upon returning home from my in-law's country home, nestled in the trees, Husband and I slipped into bed to watch Eat Pray Love.  I'd been wanting to put film to memory since I read the book, but just as many say when comparing books to movies, the book was far more enjoyable.  However, Julia still makes me smile on the inside when she grins.  This must be the reason that I have a small collection of Julia Roberts movies in VHS in a box somewhere.  And while I am on the subject, can I just say how awesome it is to watch her in her element,  post babies?  It makes a mother feel good, and is quite empowering. 

Other than this and a couple of afternoons in my pj's fighting off a cold, while Husband was off helping his Dad harvest his elk meat, the weekend was relatively relaxed.  So relaxed, that when today fell upon us, I secretly hoped that I could be on holiday until January!

What was the best part of your holiday weekend?  I hope it was enjoyable!

Pumpkin cheesecake sounds delicious! I must admit, pumpkin is not something we do well in this country. You see it in soup but never in cake, and trying to get hold of canned pumpkin to bake with is like trying to get hold of snow in the Sahara! So I can only dream and drool!! x

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
