Out and About

I had intended to post about ten days ago and the title of that post was to have been 'Five Days In May', but after the days I had, there was no energy in reserve to sit down and write. I had a crazy week of birth after birth and every one of them had complications of one sort or another. It left me feeling totally drained and wondering why on earth I am putting myself through this.

I decided to share with you some of the more unusual road signs that I have seen whilst out and about on my visits. This being a rural area, there are some different ones out there, which I don't see in the city. On several roads, there are warnings of turtles crossing. I actually saw one in the middle of a busy road the other day, but was unable to stop and rescue it because of the traffic.

This being Amish country, there are also warnings of horses and buggies. They do travel into and out of town and I have seen them on the highway, but I don't envy them having to deal with fast-moving vehicles.

As for my news, there is still much uncertainty regarding the outcome of this placement and I have three weeks until I finish. I can't say any more about it at present, but thank you for your words of support and encouragment, which are really appreciated.
