Weekly Wrap Up (Sept. 27 - Oct. 3)



So goodbye to September and onto October. Can you believe that Canadian Thanksgiving is a week from Monday :) See, we have our harvest done before a lot of our southern neighbours. The holiday is about the same, rooted in early settlers giving thanks to not only the Native Americans they encountered at the beginning, but everything that happened in the previous year. Hopefully topped off with a bountiful harvest to carry through the winter. We have turkey, tons of veggies, mashed potatoes, gravy, and all the fixings. I love my cranberries! The only difference is we don't have a Black Tuesday after our Thanksgiving :gikkle:. A bit too early for Christmas shopping. But pumpkin spice season starts here early and goes late :unsure:

Now that takes care of the US And Canada, what about the rest of the world? Do you have a day in your country that is like Thanksgiving Day here? Just curious if there is similar days? Is it celebrated in Mexico or the Caribbean?

Enough of my babbling and onto the wrap up!

On Monday, Cia lead us in the CSR Discussion Day. Did you get a chance to read the story?

Wednesday, it was time for Renee to pop in and remind us all about the upcoming Fall Anthology coming up.

And all week long were you experiencing jactitation as you got were waiting daily for the Word's of the Day by Myr?

Lastly, we will check in on the goals from last week.

Thanks for reminding everyone about the possibility to promote a favoite story via the GA blog. We have a couple of open spots in the last months of 2020, so please consider sending a review to me or Renee. It doesn't have to be long - in fact, a slightly expanded story review you've already written would be fine.
