Mia arrived in the wee hours Wednesday morning. We cooked all day and had a great Thanksgiving dinner Wednesday evening. In between food preparations, we did chores together, mucked out the barn and wrapped soap. The meal was huge considering we were only three people, but that's okay. We have food for days and days. Mia prepared her first turkey and made the stuffing with apples and red onion - fantastic idea which I never would have thought of. She made the perfect gravy and treated us to her own apple crisp for desert. I had her all to myself for a little over 24 hours, which seems to be the most any visitors stay on the farm. Everyone has their own busy professional and personal lives. Mia had to be in New Jersey today, Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, to pick up her brother, Captain Father Aaron, at the airport. They would be spending the rest of the day with their NJ people. When Mia leaves it's always tough for me to see her go. I have a million things to keep myself busy, and many, many little, and big, friends to keep me company.
