Voting in the advance polls for the federal election begins today. Election Day is October 21 but the four days of advance polls allow us to vote when the voting stations aren’t as busy. This is a great opportunity for voters. It will be interesting to see the result of the voting. Canada may elect a minority government which could mean another election in the near future. For me, this 40 day campaign after four years is plenty. However, we are fortunate to live in a democratic country with the right to vote so another trip to the polls would be a privilege many in the world do not have.
Book club has begun again and I so enjoy the time spent with this group of women. We have been together for a number of years, each bringing her unique experience to the shared book. We have had some wonderful conversations over the years. I really look forward to the first Tuesday of every month. This month we are reading A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.
Georgie, the golden grand-dog has not walked with us this week. She developed a limp after a walk with our daughter earlier in the week so she is recuperating now. Anti-inflammatories are helping. She may be back on the trail with us soon. We miss her!
This coming Monday is Thanksgiving in Canada. We will celebrate with our daughter and the grandchildren on Saturday. Because our daughter is a nurse whose shift work crosses all holidays, we celebrate occasions whenever we can around a holiday. We have much to be thankful for this year and every year.
Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!
