Sunday, April 10
There was still a bit of snow among our flower beds when we woke up on Sunday morning.
Our tulips have been through a lot of stress this spring – snow, hail, and more snow.
A day or two earlier we decided to visit our friends Sam and Alice after church, because Alice recently spent some time in the hospital. They live about an hour and forty-five minutes away from us.
I asked Cerwin if it would be possible to take the back roads instead of the turnpike. He kind of grumbled about that. I said, “I thought it would be fun since we had the entire afternoon open.”
A few hours later he told me to get Sam and Alice’s address so he could put it in the GPS. He knows how to get there by the turnpike, so I knew we were taking the back roads. 🙂
Remember I like back roads, but he prefers interstates.
The conservative Mennonites were just leaving church as we went by.
When we began meeting other horses, we figured that we were approaching another conservative church.
These ladies must live close enough to walk to church.
This is when we saw the second church.
I told Cerwin that we would not have seen this on the turnpike. 🙂
We stopped at the Burger King near Morgantown for a quick lunch and met a couple who recognized us from Transport For Christ.
About this time I thanked Cerwin for the back road drive because it felt like a vacation for my soul.
There were still a few signs of the previous days snow.
When we arrived at Sam and Alice’s place, he was outside walking their dog. He was still in his “lunch-preparing” apron. He is a great cook.
While he and Cerwin visited a bit, I took a few front yard pictures.
Some of you may remember that he has a great orchard in his back yard. Tomorrow night I will show you those pictures.
