Canadian Thanksgiving

    Today, Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving; a time when we are all supposed to look at our lives and be appreciative of all that we have.  Traditionally a big chunk of what we look at on this day, centers around food, and to be sure, I am very thankful of the food that we have grown ourselves and have stored away for the winter.
    The photo shows the tomatoes, beets, and zucchini relish that sitting on our pantry shelf.  We also have beans, chilis, and peas in our freezer, and lots of potatoes that are about to be put away under the house in our “root cellar”.  All that food will help us get through the winter.
    I am thankful for my family and friends, and the good life Canada has provided.  Later today we will be joining some of our friends for a big Thanksgiving feast.

You can take a look at my photo-realistic paintings at:



  1. I was interested if you celebrated in Canada with a big meal and gatherings of loved ones.
    What will your feast include ?
    I see this year there will be no football games for you , because the league is re organizing, but that usually it included football watching as it does in the U.S.

  2. Beautiful pantry foodstuffs. How is the woodpile coming along?
