Spring PA: a small Mennonite community
Not too far from Uniontown there is a small Mennonite community that my friend Debra discovered. We rode up there after having a fabulous lunch at the Casselman Inn
The food is old fashioned, with my favorites being their honey dipped chicken and their baked beans and homemade bread, served warm with home made apple butter.
After lunch we took a drive through the beautiful farm land of the local Mennonites.
Three weeks ago I had knee replacement surgery. This was one of the hardest things I have ever gone through, mainly because I was not at all prepared for how difficult the recovery was going to be. It’s taken me this past three weeks to get to the point where I am beginning to feel a little like myself again.I am still dealing with a lot of depression though.
One of the hardest things was while Phil worked 15 hours days, I was alone and feeling pretty helpless. I never want to go through anything like that again!
I did read a LOT of books though during this time.
