Amish trip!

My best friend Shelia and I made a quick trip to Lancaster, Pa. We had lots of fun as usual. We were unaware

that on Friday, because it was Good Friday that all Amish shops were closed. We didn't see them in the fields,

at school, in their buggies or anywhere on Friday. It was disappointing to us to not be able to go into their

shops, but I commend them for observing Good Friday as they do.


 I will show a few pictures of the Amish and some of my goodies that I bought.Also on friday I got a call

from my sister, I knew something must have happened. She said my mom had fell and broke her

arm in 5 places. I came home and went to the hospital, the Dr. had said he would do surgery on

Sat. but come Sat. morning it was cancelled. He wants her to get a second opinion. It scares me

having her wait so long, even some of the nurses were shaking their heads.

 Please pray that we are directed to the right Dr. and that my mom will get the correct surgeon

and have a full recovery with no complications. I probably won't be blogging much or doing

any crafting for awhile. I need to be helping my mom and dad through all of this.

  1. I know it is difficult, but I have learned from the trial that we are going through with Brian , that there is usually a good reson when a doctor delays treatment. Be watchful, but don't be afraid to ask questions if treatment is delayed much longer. I pray she will get the CORRECT treatment soon and heal quickly.--blessings--Jan

  3. For heaven's sake. Maybe the doctor didn't feel confident enough to do the surgery. We'll pray for your mom's quick recovery.

  9. I love the Amish and have really done a lot of research and reading about them. We have some that live in WI pretty near to me so I go to their shops when I can. I like taking pictures but I try and be very careful as they do not like getting them taken. Love the other things you got especially the fabric! Have a great week!
    Be blessed!

  15. Hi Lecia! Time to catch up on your blog, how do I always get so far behind? I didn't know that the Amish celebrated Good Friday like that, but I think it's wonderful! I think stores ought to observe it also.

    Sorry to hear about your mom! I see that I am WAY behind and I hope that by now you have some answers and surgery (if that's what is needed) will be very soon. Praying for you all!

    Enjoyed seeing your Amish pictures, I just adore them and their simple way of life. I will say that often times, I am envious of them. Awesome goodies you picked up girl, love that fabric!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
