there are a few autumnal features in our Humble Bungalow.
Small simple additions are creeping in...
orange mini pumpkins.
Given that I prefer natural seasonal touches to those made in factories
it's relatively inexpensive and easy.

Canada's Thanksgiving is on Monday, a month before the US celebrates their Thanksgiving.
We are hosting dinner here in Our Humble Bungalow
So I'm looking through my cookbooks
and planning ahead.
Some dishes are prepared in advance so that I can enjoy visiting with our guests.
I like to set the table early
lay the tablecloth and linen napkins
arrange the silver
the glasses and plates.
I'll be wearing my linen apron and "fussing in the kitchen" for most of the day.
I'm looking forward to dinner with our family.
We all live in the same city, which makes it easy to gather together often and share a family meal.
in a humble and simple way
with a home cooked meal
served with love
remembering thanksgiving feasts from the past
carving out and creating future
for the elders
and the wee ones.
I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
