Visiting the Amish...

We had a free afternoon this past Monday so we made a trip over to the local Amish.
I decided to take  my camera and take a few pics.  I don't usually get pics of the Amish themselves unless their heads are turned or it's from a fairly good distance.
There was lots of field work going on....

And apparently some yard work....
how would you like this as your riding mower?

When you really stop to think about it, the "simple" life of the Amish really isn't so simple.
I should of taken a pic or two of their gardens, which are already coming up SO beautifully.

Besides visiting Lydia and purchasing a new woven rug from her, we found a new little variety store, as they call it, where I found not only a small table to use as a night stand, I found this little school bench. 
I guess it depends on who you are and what you like on what sort of value you would put on this, but I paid a whole $8 for this little bench! I love it and I almost passed on it when it finally dawned on me that I had just the place for it! 

It was an enjoyable afternoon and will be making another trip back over soon!

Time to go to work.....

Enjoy your day!

It is wonderful to know the ways, there may come a time when that is all we have.

Wonderful bargain.
