Mother's Day

First of all, I want to say happy Mother's Day to mothers everywhere. Yesterday, my daughter took my son and I to Shiloh General Store, which is the Amish store in the next county over. It isn't that far away, but I rarely drive over 10 miles away from home any more. We ate lunch outside (sandwiches) and enjoyed Whoopie Pies! Their homemade breads are always good and we brought some home for later (also a jar of seedless blackberry jam). They had a lot of Amish goods for sale, and even some quilts hanging up near the ceiling so no one could touch them (wise idea). I was surprised that many of the quilts used printed fabric instead of all solids.  I have been a little under the weather lately, and was too tired to do much of anything else, and my son wanted to mow grass before it got too late, so we didn't stay out too long. It was a very nice day, and the sun was shining. We met a lot of nice shoppers who gave us good advice at the store. I know we will go back again soon. (Photo from the internet, as always, I forgot my camera.)

What a lovely outing; I really need to get to the cheese and butter store in Jeffersonville. I've been out for ages.
Hope you're doing well, Jean.

Sorry to hear you've not been feeling well. Not surprised your son wanted to get back to mow the grass with his cool mower!!
