Tuesday June 9, 2009-Goshen Indiana

We woke pretty early this morning to 57 degree weather outside! The weather is certainly cooperating for us. The high today is predicted to be 75 degrees.

Bob Curry made breakfast burritos for everyone this morning. We went over to his place where he was cooking and placed our request for filling in the burrito and ate right there. Bill and Ornell had made up their big coffee pot, so there was plenty of coffee and burritos for everyone. After finishing mine, I asked him to make one for Stella and took it over to her. She had just gotten out of bed and was ready to eat.

Not too much else exciting happened today during the day. We were scheduled to go to Yoder's Farm for supper tonight. This is a large farm that is owned and operated by the Yoder family. They have built a large eating room where they serve their catered meals to groups. They are Amish, so they don't use electricity or many motor-powered machines. The lighting in the dining room is gas, although they didn't have the lights on when we were there. We were told that the last rally that was held in Goshen also went to eat there and it was extremely hot in the room. At least it was cool today. The food was great, with a selection of chicken or Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, noodles and mixed vegetables. Of course there was some great home made bread and home made peanut butter and jelly to go on top. Don't forget the three varieties of pies, strawberry, chocolate and peach.

It is very quaint to see the Amish people in their horse and buggies traveling up and down the roads. The drivers here are used to them and the horses are apparently accustomed to the cars speeding by and didn't seem to have a problem with it.

We came back home and sat outside for a little while but everyone was full and we went to bed pretty early.

So long,
