Friday evening Matt and I headed to the cottage, didn't hit a lot of traffic, and talked all evening with his family when we got there (parents, Meg & Jeff, and momma). Went to bed EXHAUSTED and slept wonderfully due to the fresh air clearing the sinuses. Luckily Matt went golfing with his dad on Saturday morning, so I got to sit by the fire with a blanket reading the 3rd Stieg Larsson book - wonderful! The rest of the day was spent helping prep dinner, making an incredible appetizer - savoury panniers (from the Barefoot Contessa - Back to Basics Cookbook), drinking wine, and chatting away. Mardi, Tony, and Connor (who is now 6) came over for dinner as well and we played around with him for a bit. Had a traditional Thanksgiving dinner which was lovely. Sunday morning Matt made pumpkin pancakes - considering I do not like pumpkin stuff, I was very surprised how much I loved these (from the October Men's Health).
