When is a Pumpkin not a Pumpkin for Macro Saturday


Pumpkins growing in the field is a beautiful sight at this time of the year.   Yes, pumpkins are used for carving at Halloween but this weekend they will turn into something else.   This weekend, the last weekend before the C word is Canadian Thanksgiving.   This is the time many families put aside their differences and belly up to the table laden with Turkey and Cranberries and Pumpkin pie with whipped cream.   By Monday we are going to feel bloated on account of all those calories that we stuffed into our mouths.    Bring it on!!!!

This pumpkin has no calories.   It is just a pretty little ceramic pumpkin that is sitting on the sideboard in the dining room just to give it the autumn feeling.

This will be the star of the show on Thanksgiving day.   It will be one of a couple.  There are some people at my table who will opt for two pieces.   My oldest son says he is making an apple pie.  I can’t wait to see that.  I know he can do it but will he?   I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  We expect warm temperatures so get out and enjoy it if you can.  

Join us at Macro Saturday if you have taken a nice close up or a macro.   It is fun to share.   Valerie

Oh boy, what a good looking pie.
I've never tasted a pumpkin pie, because we have no Thanksgiving but I'd like to be at your table this weekend.
The shiny ceramic pumpkin is lovely too.
Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving, my friend! Your pie sure looks tasty! Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend filled with good food and surrounded by loved ones.

That pumpkin is MINE! Oh, I have not tasted a pumpkin pie before. And we do not have a thanksgiving day either with turkey and cranberries etc.

I am in deep envy. ;-)

And oh, I enjoyed the ten things you do!
Oh yes, pumpkin pie will be visiting our Thanksgiving table and it very welcome. Yum!! Have a wonderful dinner.
You are just teasing me now with that pie. Pumpkin is my all time favorite pie and that looks divine. I could eat the whole thing myself.

What lovely pumpkins--in the ceramic & pie form! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving...ours won't be til November, but I think having it earlier in the year makes more can still go out and walk off the calories when it's not so cold out!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
