Saturday Sky and.......

I did take a photo last Saturday and I was getting ready to post it today when I saw this

So I decided you could have two sky photos today. We get interesting cloud formations which makes for wonderful sunrises. But you have to be quick as they don't last long.

And here is the photo from Saturday.

It was taken just before sunset. Unfortunately, you can't see the sun shining between the clouds and the houses.

A Cucumber

When we planted the new beds, we sewed cucumber seeds even though it was a bit late to plant them. They came up and then were all but destroyed by a late hail storm. This seemed to give them strength but it was too late for them to do anything. So I forgot about them and let the squash take over. Well this is what I found when I cleared the bed the other day.

It was a determined plant that had stretched to the end of the bed. Cucumbers will be on my list of things to plant next year if they are going to try this hard.

Happy Thanksgiving

Yes I know Thanksgiving was yesterday but I couldn't write anything before dinner and I didn't feel like writing when we got home.

The boy child and I went to a friend's house for dinner. There were 13 of us and not one person present was born in Canada. The only Canadians were the host family but nobody's going to turn down a good meal, right?

This year I bought cranberries when they went on sale as they are unavailable in November. They're a seasonal item I was told last year. They just didn't celebrate the same season as me. So now I am ready for the 23 types of cranberry sauce that I serve.

Saturday Sky

It's been a while since I've posted a photo of the sky, so to make up for it here's two from yesterday.

This is what the sky looked like in the morning. No way was it going to be an 11 degree day. Although the sun came out in the afternoon, the high only reached 6 degrees.
What I find interesting about this photo is that the camera has picked up a blue tint in the sky that could not be seen with the naked eye. I saw it through the view finder before I took the photo. To my eye the sky was very white, I do not know if the blue was there or if this is a quirk of the camera.

We did not get any snow but this is the cloud formation last night.

As usual, the weather forecast this morning is different from the report two days ago; it seems that everything is a couple of days off, so instead of it being a nice weekend, it will be fine just in time for everyone going back to work.
