I mentioned in my last post that K and I were going with some friends to the Amish buffet. Well, here’s the picture of the inside of the restaurant. I still can’t figure out how we were almost the last people in there. It seems like people ate so fast and then left right away. It’s a neat restaurant because it is inside a large barn. The food is fantastic, all homemade, and I always eat way too much. When I go to buffets, I make sure to never, ever eat anything with my hand after having touched the communal spoons. I honestly think that buffets are kind of gross in this regard, but when it comes to the Gasthof, you really just have to man (or woman) up. It’s just too good. Honestly, my favorite part of going there is the homemade sugar cookies.
I kept saying that I was going to bring Chester in my large handbag and then put him on the buffet so that he could eat too 🙂
I guess this is their way of getting ready for Easter? I’m not really sure, but it was all kind of frightening. I made K take a picture with the bunny couple, but he moved too quick and it was blurry.
It was getting dark, but I tried to take a picture of some of the buggies that were parked there. It was an awesome time. Plus, our friends from Portland came with us, so it was a culture shock for everyone involved. I’m used to getting the side-eye from strangers as they look at K and I, but our friends weren’t. I guess our friend’s blue hair and gauged earrings was something new to the locals 🙂
Today we met with the same friends for a picnic at Lake Monroe. Actually, the guy friend is our neighbor and that’s how we met. He’s a pretty funny guy and his girlfriend is visiting from Portland. They are a fun couple and are some of my few friends.
I wasn’t sure I wanted to even go outside because I woke up feeling like I have a cold. My throat is still sore and I’m tired, but I think it was a good choice in the end.
This was a pretty Sycamore tree at our picnic area.
Here’s the fire we started to cook burgers and sausages. One thing I think is very important for someone like me, with a mental illness that is, is to be in nature. I find nothing more relaxing then just spending time in nature and away from human things. Fresh air can be so therapeutic! I grew up on a farm and ran wild most of the time with my brother. I miss having that kind of freedom to be outside and explore. 🙂
Anyway, that was my weekend so far! For the next couple of days, K and I are going to Chicago! We will go to our favorite Korean market, H-Mart. Definitely looking forward to that and will post about it when we come back 🙂
Have a good weekend everyone!
