I haven't had much to write about lately but I am looking forward to this weekend. It is Thanksgiving here in Canada so that means a long weekend.

We plan to go to New York state to visit our friend Scarlette. It's about 4 hours away. It had been a trip planned in Aug but with the renovations, we had to cancel....(reno's still pending, more about that in another post).

We also upgraded our vehicle this week..from a 2005 SantaFe to a 2007 of the same make...This was the demo model so it has all the bells and whistles lol...so we look forward to a nice long drive in it this weekend. It also happens to be a 7 passenger instead of a 5 passenger..the cool thing is that the last 2 seats hide in the floor when not needed so it has all the room we had before when we don't need the extra seats...I love having the option of more seats...there have been many times they would have really come in handy in the past.

So...the idea of getting away for 3 full days....is just pure BLISS...It will do us both good. I can't wait to see my friend Scarlette. The last time was in 2004 when she was here with her sister's family visiting Montreal..she used to live in Hawaii..and last yr , finally decided to return to NY state to be closer to family.

I look forward to seeing her new house. Seeing her sister Teri again, and Teri's children. The time Scarlette was here we both laughed like school girls till our sides hurt, till the wee hours of the night. I can't wait to laugh till my gut hurts again lol.

Chris makes me laugh every day. It's one of the reasons I love him so much. But there are also friends that make us laugh and somehow...those moments in time when u can just gafaw a whole lot, about nothing are precious.

Sounds like a great weekend coming up! And congrats on that new car upgrade....!

You are so right about the Senecio...It would not survive in the kind of cold you have there....It sure is a pretty pretty plant and I love it with all my heart....It does get like a small tree, but everything about it is so unusual and so attractive to my eyes....!

Thanks for the visit to my blog. I love comments! I was in Montreal last year for your Thanksgiving. We were doing research in Newfoundland, and made a sidetrip to Quebec. It's such a beautiful city. Have a fun trip.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend and give Scar lots of hugs from me.

That was a clever move to buy a modern demo model. Enjoy it and your trip.
