Okay, lots of good stuff on weekend blogroll so let me jump right in and share. There's a little something for everyone today!:
AMISH GIRL WITH BUNNY: Last month I shared some links to art work by Pennsylvania artist Cheryl McNalty. She's outdone her earlier work with this one. Y0u'll want to take a look at a new drawing she has, this one of an Amish girl holding a little bunny. I love the picture! It is very serene and the clothing style is quintessential Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. You won't see that look in many other communities, which makes the drawing that much more special. So if you enjoyed her other work, you'll love this! Click here to view the portrait of an Amish girl with a rabbit.
ICE HOCKEY - BRRRRR: I am showcasing what is really a bird blog here. BUT, there are two pictures (okay, the bird photos - especially the blue jay - ARE gorgeous, so take a look at those too) I want you to look at. This is a scene outside of rural Waterloo, Ontario of a group of Old Order Mennonites playing ice hockey. People are rabid about this sport in Canada. I wish the photos were a hair closer, but the photographer was being respectful, so I can't fault that. Anyway, as the blogger points out, note some of the players with bare arms. Brrrr. And the women sit together in the second photo watching the action. Click here for these neat photos.
SUGAR COOKIE BARS: Heaven. That is the only word I can use to subscribe what this baker did with a traditional Amish sugar cookie recipe. Heck, yes, turn them into bars! They'll be easier to ice and more portable than a cookie. Click here to get the recipe, read how she made them and see some photos that will have you salivating on your screen!
MICRO-DOCUMENTARY: We've been following the case of Ohio Amish girl Sarah Hershberger and her battle with Akron Children's Hospital (I think they overreached). ReasonTV is offering a 6 minute mini-documentary of the case. You'll actually get to see Sarah, here from the parents directly, and others involved in the case. It's a wonderful view into what is a wrenching case and the video is very, very respectful. Click here to watch.
