The long over due update about Thanksgiving dinner...

We all drove to Krista's brothers cottage on the lake about 2 hours north of Toronto. On the way we stopped at "The Burger Pitt" to start the feasting off, and had a huge serve of burger and onion rings. We arrived at the cottage late afternoon and it was just as you would have imagined from a movie or story book - idyllic. The Thanksgiving feast began and we had turkey and stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potato, gravy etc etc. We then finished the meal off with pie - lots of pie - apple, rhubarb and pumpkin pie. I slept like a baby for 10 hours after that. Breakfast was a fabulous feast of pancakes, maple syrup, bacon, hash and fruit.

The next day we drove back to Toronto to start our 24 hour journey home. Fortunately, while it was long, it was very uneventful.

I managed to get through yesterday without falling asleep and had a reasonable night's sleep. I certainly wasn't up for hours at a time so I am hoping that I can continue to improve and get back to sleeping 9 hours straight very soon.
