Playin' Catch Up

Whew! It's been a busy summer so far - not much time for posting so I thought I would share what we've done in photos. Grab some coffee and sit back and visit with us for a while :)

We've taken many road trips to Amish Country which is only a 20 minute ride from us. It's gorgeous country farmland and it's my "Happy Place". I hope to move there some day but for now I'm happy taking car rides there to de-stress. I can get lost on the back roads for hours! Good thing Miss Pearl likes it too :) 

This particular day the men were at their small school chopping wood for the winter. I asked if I could take some photos and they said yes. I didn't take any photos of the men themselves though, as I know they don't like that so I stuck to horses, buggies, and beautiful scenery.

This guy was raking hay the old way and right next to him in another field was a guy doing the same thing but using a tractor. This way appeals to me more and it sure was a lot more quiet than the guy using the tractor!

My Dad, Miss Pearl and I went strawberry picking - photo taken with my phone.

Miss Pearl and I went pickin' raspberries one day...
and met some friendly turkeys while we were there

We did some of this...

and some of this....

We also took a trip to Ottawa to see my eye doc last weekend and stopped at a gorgeous one room school house museum (coming in another post). Doc said everything is going good with my eye and she was pleased with the results of the operation. 

I've been doing some sewing and hope to have a few new finished items posted soon. I love how they're turning out.

It's a long weekend here in Canada so it's gonna be another busy one. Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Hello Connie, love the Amish pictures, really neat to see their way of life. Miss Pearl is sure a sweetie, enjoyed the photos very much. Glad to hear your eyes o.k. Enjoy the long weekend, I will. Blessings Francine.

  2. hi, Connie~
    looks like a fun summertime~Wonderful pics~
    glad the operation went well~

  3. Hi Connie, oh I so love visiting the Amish. We have vacationed in Ohio in the middle of a huge Amish settlement for the past 2 years. We are thinking of PA this year. Just can't decide. Miss Pearl has grown and is such a precious little girl. Aren't our girls good helpers? What did we do without them? Can't wait to see what you are creating. Have a great day.
