Well, it’s been a few days since we had our little excursion to Amish Acres. I think I’ve recovered…maybe. It was somewhat of a drive and by the time we got there, it was already unbelievably hot. We walked around and saw lots of great crafts (managed to come away with several good ideas of things to make). I was able to find the booth of one of our customers (I’ve done several special orders for her, so it was cool to see some of our merchandise in her finished product).
We ended up being so hot and sweaty that we decided to go over by the restaurant and sit in the shade for a while. But even that was fun. It had been so long since I’d spent an entire day with my friends, so just sitting and chatting was nice.
The drive home was quite the event. The GPS lady (Lori has named her Margo) took us on some out-of-the-way route home…we ended up driving through a lot of small towns, many of which we’d never heard of. It seemed a little greener in the northern part of the state than it is here at home, I’m guessing they’ve probably had more rain than we have. Saw a lot of interesting barns. Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures…maybe next time.
Of course I ended up with a sunburn despite using sunscreen with an SPF of 70. But then imagine how bad it would have been had I not used one at all…yikes~
All in all it was a fun getaway…now I’m looking forward to those fall festivals…with the cooler temps and pumpkin and persimmon everything.
