Elaine had eggs, hash browns and scrapple. I had a Belgium waffle with strawberries. Good.
After we ate we went back to the hotel to clean up and check out. Before we went in, though, I took some pictures outside of the place. This was right off of the parking lot.
I hope you can all see my necklace. It is the Heart of God necklace that I bought on Friday at Hershey Farm. It is in the shape of a heart but has the word God spelled in it. I'll try to post a better picture of it later.
After we checked out we headed for the Bird-in-Hand Farmers Market.
First we went downstairs and looked in the gift shop. I bought a couple of things there. Then we went upstairs to the farmer's market itself. I love walking around there. I felt like a real country girl. I got a tray of molasses cookies, a checkbook cover for myself, some candied ginger and the best corn and some pink lady apples. The veggies out in Lancaster are better than anything I can buy here in Philly. I really should take a trip out to the Farmers Market at least once a month. Especially since I now have a new car.
We went to the Christmas shop first. It was time for our annual Christmas ornament. Something always pops out at us and we know which one to pick. Elaine found hers, but I saw a trio of angels that I loved so I bought all three. I also bought a prism with mistletoe to hang on my door. I have one for summer with beautiful purple flowers. This will be nice to change out. It was $25 marked down to $10.
Then we went to the Jam and Relish shop. I got mango salsa, tortilla chips and vidalia onion relish. My favorite things from there. Elaine bought a dozen cookies. For her free one, she got me a gingerbread boy.
On the way out of Kitchen Kettle I stopped by the farmer's stand and got a box of peaches. I do this every year and they are always good. The farmer told me he had picked them at 5 p.m. the night before. Can't get much fresher than that.
Then it was time to go home. We made good time until we got to I-76 which is always crowded. Then when I got to I-676 we stopped completely and stayed stopped about 15 minutes. I turned on the news radio and found out there was an accident at the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and the traffic was backed up for miles. We finally made it to I-95 and home. Elaine came in for a few minutes and then started on her two hour trip home.
So the sister's get-away is done for this year, but it was a really good time. I'm so glad we did this.
Before I end though, I forgot to show you one picture yesterday. We were sitting waiting for a light to change and there was a little Amish boy across the street selling homemade root beer. He was so adorable. And since his back was facing us and we couldn't see his face, I had Elaine use my camera to get a picture of him. It's just precious.
And with that I will end. I hope you enjoyed coming along with me. Back to the real world now.
