Tomorrow is Canadian Thanksgiving, but we held our festivities yesterday evening in joint celebration of Roger's upcoming birthday. Mark cooked the turkey (and made some seriously intense passion fruit sorbet), Peter and Cydney made Brussels sprouts, Mike made a delicious salad and some green beans while little Martina wondered why he wasn't taking her to visit the goats. Tom and his daughter Linnaea were unexpectedly present given that they are leaving for two years in New Zealand on Tuesday. Janet baked a pumpkin cheesecake, and I made sweet potato pie while David kept the wine flowing. Those who couldn't make it due to spatial and/or temporal restrictions were sorely missed, but the full house was much appreciated.
We have a lot to be thankful for at Farcical Farm, especially in these...er...interesting times. Good jobs, loving families and wonderful friends (who help to build horse shelters). We want for nothing, and I feel privileged beyond words.
