R O A D T R I P !
My Barber Husband told me a couple of weeks ago, "Don't make any plans...pack your bags, I'm taking you somewhere special..." I am pretty sure, that next to "I love you," and "Here is a big slice of key lime pie," that "Pack your bags..." is probably the best music to my ears.... The rest of the sentence doesn't even matter, I just love the "pack your bags" part...
Well, if it weren't for my camera hanging off my neck, you'd thought I was a hound dog hanging out the window, with my tongue hanging out, howling at the breeze and sniffing the air. But my "howling" sounded more like..."PULL OVER...PULL OVER!"
I think you are getting my barber husband's idea of "pulling over." He thinks that means slowing down, so I don't fall out, or slowing down over the pot holes as I point through the front windshield as I press the camera to my face and brace myself into the seat and into a makeshift tripod to steady my camera as I grunt and shoot. But, after some convincing on day two, he was a sweetie and pulled over. I actually do have some shots without the pavement in it, but this particular day had such beautiful clouds in it, it was a photographer's dream day of shooting.
Oh, where we go? Amish country! Holmes County, Ohio - the largest population of Amish in the United States (38,000 Amish) - buggy haven and I almost went AWOL because of the beauty and the lifestyle in that area. We were so lucky, we showed up the weekend after they had 16 straight days of rain - hence the very lush green grass - nope - no color saturation here. It really WAS this green!
I have so much to say about our visit, but I have to get busy for more cheese making tomorrow - getting milk from the farm...I know, I have to talk about that too - and my sewing surprise. But I will post more about my trip again soon - just had to get some out to you, my friends.
Miss you all - hope you enjoyed the pavement - I mean the pastures!
from my house to your house,
