    Happy October!



    So nuts that so much of the year has gone by!



    Have a great day, everyone! Just in the middle of making up the shopping list for the week, thinking of everything I'll need for Thanksgiving.

    DH and I just made up a carrot cake, Thai chicken with rice and cabbage roll casserole as my brother and SIL are coming for lunch and a visit-which means SIL and I will play Scrabble. At the same time I am emailing back and forth with my Mum in Toronto-we have been collaborating on finding one of my ancestors from the area in England we visited this summer. Have been combing through lots of online records, gravestones we photographed etc and are currently back to the 18th century. I find myself wondering how parents fed those large families of 12 children many of them had-they must have grown, raised, caught and foraged for a lot as they were certainly not wealthy. And it is pretty obvious in going through the records that sadly many children did not survive. Of course I am sure they didn't have near the variety of foods we enjoy but now we modern families often find it hard to make ends meet with just a couple of kids. My DH always says he is thankful to have a comfortable warm roof over his head and plenty to eat. Fast forward to our Thanksgiving theme of next week!

    Cold and very rainy here. We may just go shut the cabin down tomorrow!! Just leaving for the walk in clinic my son was at an outside get together and stepped hard on a nail. It was a really big nail. He woke me up at 3 am to tell me it was swelling and hurt badly, we soaked his foot in Epsom salts but he can't put weight on his foot this afternoon...sigh it is always something. I put a saying in the LOL thread last week that says. THIS FAMILY IS ONE TENT SHORT OF A CIRCUS and today that is how I am feeling!

    Oh, thriftygranny, how awful! Tetanus shot? I presume. I hope it didn't hit anything like tendons or joints! Please keep us updated.
