Well, another year has whizzed by, and I sure picked a good way to celebrate its passing. Since Mum died last January, all our usual celebrations have not felt the same without her, so to celebrate with family I’ve hardly met and cement some real relationships with these ones – here on the other side of the world – was a Godsend. The day started with a line up of notices and cards awaiting opening.
After a leisurely start we headed off for Lancaster County and the Amish – stopping at a little centre to educate tourists on the amish culture. Great weather, perfect Autumnal day with plenty of pumpkins on show. I ate too much, especially a beguiling little pumpkin woopie pie that was SO SWEET.
I managed a brief collapse on bed before we set off for birthday dinner out, at the four dogs tavern. Here we dined outside in the balmy air, on prawns, calamari, and slow-cooked pork on coleslaw.
