And it was wonderful. An Amish Buggy ride in Strasburg, Pennsylvania. Wow, the little things in life that can bring so much joy. The simple things in life. The scenery was beautiful, the weather brisk and practically invigorating.
We traveled the back roads and stopped at an Amish farm. They live with no electricity, no cars, no internet (holy moly!!!). The farms were beautifully manicured, green fields, tulips and jonquils. (We didn’t see a speck of trash in the ditches along the way.) And here’s one for you…what do you think the mother was doing when we got there?
Washing windows!! I haven’t washed windows for, well….hmmmm…awhile! If you get a chance, take a trip to Lancaster county Pennsylvania. I plan to go back and spend at least 3 days. I forgot to mention all the antique shops! (and food). What a great place.
As I bask in what it would be to live the “simple life” and “wouldn’t it be nice to live that way”, I just have to remind myself…those women work darn hard! And I think I’d miss the computer 🙂
