Thanksgiving was a quiet day for us at Pinesol – no feast except for our usual good fare. However, the day after, we went to Phoebe and Dave’s in Mora, Minn. and left Spirit to be doggiesat and stayed the night. Saturday morning, we continued on to Joel, Aimee, Adelaide and Henry’s home in Sartell for the festivities. They had bought tickets for us to the community theater performance of “White Christmas.” It was wonderful, especially the company dance numbers. We were able to get a walk in before Joel came home from work at the St. Cloud Hospital (these health workers are on call at inconvenient times). Then Adelaide helped cut up crudites for snacks. We had dinner of woinderful sides and a heritage turkey from Kelly Larson’s flock. Tom was delicious and gave us leftovers to leave and take home. The other Tom will be for Christmas. On Sunday morning, we returned to Phoebe and Dave’s for a tea break and to pick up Spirit. Then home to our animals. The chickens were still well supplied and the horses had a few whisps of hay left from the six bales we left for them. The horeses have water in a heated Ritchie fountain, so they’re good waterwise.
It was a fine celebration.
