Last weekend was really nice. Rory and I went back to Victoria for what will be the last time for a long time. It was strange being there with almost no one to visit with but it was nice at the same time, we didn’t feel like we had to get anything accomplished while we were there. We spent friday night and part of Saturday with my parents and then just hung out for the rest of Saturday until the evening when we went out to his folk’s place for dinner. We even managed to pick up his little sister on the way. This girl in incredible, she’s 14 and lives with her 21 year old sister (who has been away for three weeks) and she home schools herself.


Dinner was fun and the kids were crazy, they dragged Rory around the house buy his arms and climbed all over him like monkeys while he tried to play some fishing video game. Anyone who has yet to see Rory in this environment is really missing out. Alexa, his sister and Cole, his brother are already planning trips out to Montreal to visit.

Monday night we were back in Vancouver and had vegan Thanksgiving with Gabrielle. Oh the yummy things we ate! My signature miso mushroom gravy, tempeh, both roasted and mashed yams and potatoes, broccoli, salad and I even whipped up an organic pumpkin (and banana) pie with homemade crust. All of this was made after work so we were pretty zonked.
