ABC Wednesday is starting their farewell tour. This will be the last trip through the alphabet with Mrs. Nesbitt and her team. On this farewell tour I will be looking back with a mix of old and new for each letter. Click on ABC Wednesday to see what others are sharing.
Amish, animals the Amish use and Architecture are my choices for A. All these photos are from our trip to Amish Country in Indiana and Ohio the end of September (2016) with the Mennonite Girls Can Cook.
The architecture photos are from the village of Millersburg in Holmes County, Ohio. I haven’t shared these photos on my blog before. Millersburg is in the heart of the largest Amish settlement. This is the Courthouse at the county seat.
We found the downtown to be charming with many interesting shops and original architecture.
Millersburg was incorporated February 17, 1835.
Hotel Millersburg built in 1847 is on the left. The Hotel, which has been placed on the US Department of Interior’s National Register of Historic Places, is located in the center of the Millersburg National Historic district.
Now to the present…how’s January 2017 shaping up? Things are busy here and I’ll have a lot to share later. We are still cold and icy but nothing to compare with other parts of the country.
All these roads, signs, and fences are from our trip to Amish Country at the end of September. These roads are in Holmes County, Ohio.
Matthew 7: 13-14 – “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”

We had a lazy mostly indoor Saturday with lots and lots of rain. Today, Sunday, we’ve had some blue skies and sunshine. We spent the afternoon with our oldest kids. They fed us well and we had some good conversation. We’ve followed super Sunday in Major League Soccer to see who will move forward in the playoffs towards the MLS Cup final game. Montreal is moving on and it looks like Toronto will, too, eliminating both New York teams. We (Seattle) play Dallas this evening. Colorado eliminated Los Angeles earlier today. This information is probably only interesting to me and that’s okay.
Hope you all are having Sundays filled with good things you enjoy!
While in Holmes County, Ohio, Mrs. Yoder’s was recommended to us for a meal so we stopped here for lunch breaking up our country drive. The food was plentiful and at a good price. Many locals were eating here rather than tourists.
A fun fall display at Troyer Country Market. “The foods in our Amish Wedding line originate from time-tested Amish recipes and have out-of-this-world flavor,” Vogt said. “The Amish Wedding line is all about foods that are naturally good with clean-label ingredients. Read the ingredient list on our jars, it’s what you don’t see on the label that proves what’s really good inside.”

We came home from Eastern Washington yesterday. It was a 5-1/2 hour drive and
today we have been working at filling up some yard waste bins with the leaves that fell while we were gone.
Do you have to rake leaves? Dear used a leaf blower that sucks up and mulches the leaves. It’s noisy but it gets the job done. We aren’t done with leaves yet because more will fall from the maple, apple tree and pear tree.
