This little apple is hanging on, just doesn't want to give in to the cold weather.
Today here in Canada it's Remembrance Day. The day we pay respect to the men and women who have been to war or that are at war right now. This day is very special for me. I would spend most of the day watching the war documentaries on television with my father. He was a WWII veteran. We would watch TV in complete silence except for a rare comment here and there. The men (and women) of war did'nt really want to talk about their journey. Can you imagine what they saw; so horrifying. Thank you so much for everything.
My father died when I was 16 years old. I did'nt get enough time with him. I'm still hanging on to the memories I have of him. We were fishing buddies.
November 11th also marks the date when my favorite aunt died, 7 years ago. I still can't believe she's gone.
Today - I made bread. I forgot to take an after picture but take my word - it's delicious.
