Feels like Thanksgiving

We never know in advance what our supper will be. Aside from smells wafting out of the kitchen, it’s always a surprise.

A Thursday evening in May doesn’t seem like cause for turkey, especially not with stuffing and all kinds of trimmings. But that’s what we had – a Thanksgiving feast, right down to the mashed potatoes and gravy. There was a sweet potato casserole, green beans, buns and even Greek salad. And oh yes, cranberry sauce.

Last night, a friend and I were talking about an excursion we might take – in November, at American Thanksgiving. Maybe someone overheard, took our conversation as a hint. That, or might they have determined today as the halfway mark to the U.S. holiday?

Whatever the reason, no one’s complaining, especially after dessert. What better classic treat for our stay here in Saskatchewan than saskatoon berry crisp.

Yes, we are thankful.
