I had fun at the nearby country store yesterday :-) I was going for a German theme but a few of the things were from Croatia, Switzerland and Greece. The coconut chocolate bar was amazzzzing! I even got a Mothers Day card that's in German. My MIL will like that because she can read it. I had the old german lady that works there translate it for me just to be sure it was in fact a Mothers Day card. It sounded like it had the right amount of sappiness in it so I got it :-) The mustard in a tube is good and the kids think it's funny cuz it looks like a toothpaste. The coffee, the crackers (& swiss cheese), the forest berry jam + the chocolate are all very good. I haven't opened the pickles yet (i'm pretty sure that's what they are even tho I can't read it LOL) I'm so glad the snow is gone so I can get out and explore again and visit some of my favortie places with my MIL
HEINIS http://www.heinis.com/ where you can try all the different cheeses
LEHMANS http://www.lehmans.com/ where it's just fun to shop
AMISH DOOR http://www.amishdoormarketplace.com/category.sc?categoryId=17
and of course Das Dutch Kitchen where they make awesome HUGE creme sticks
and Duane's Uncle Melvins (amish) General Store in Maysville where we (duane's cousins & I) pick on my MIL and buy our meat and cheese, No other state I've lived in has swiss cheese like here :-) I always have a blast there. His cousins are onery. There are lots of fun little places to go that are off the beaten path and not in the tourist brochures. Those places are always the best.

Blue skies!!!!! That's a big fat clue :-) That and the amish kiddos have been walking to school barefoot. Most of the amish schools are just about done for the year because it's planting time, which also doesn't require shoes.....
Another sign it's spring.....
The sap is running, there are sap buckets and bags (they keep the sap cleaner) all over the woods which look sooooo pretty when it's sunny out because they sparkle! (sorry bout the glare on my windshield) The picture doesn't do the buckets justice at all. There are so many that I can only get a bit of them in the pic at a time. I would pull in and take a 'good' pic but it's too muddy and then I'd have to find some amish dude and his horses to pull my car out. Which reminds me.... I was at the dollar general the other day (seriously, quit laughing, it's the only thing closeby) and this young amish fella was totally checking me out!!! :-) I still got it!!!.... that or he was checking me out cuz I had my hair pulled up in a bun. OK Quit laughing!!!
