Pennsylvania that is!  Yes, The Herbal Husband and I had a meeting in Harmony which is a small town north of the city of Pittsburgh in neighboring Butler County founded by the Harmonists from Germany.   As it says on the museum's website, a small town with a big history!  We started at a local burger restaurant near Zelinople called Burgh'ers.  As you can see The Herbal Husband had the Shadyside and I had the Pitt's Burger.  Had to have those rosemary fries!  Will definitely be a stop again when we are in the area.

After our meeting we took a walk around and stopped at the Wunderbar Cafe that serves among other goodies, coffee and crepes!  I had tea and it was excellent, lavender Earl Grey!  What?  Then we shared the berries and cream crepe!  Delish!  The Harmony Inn was decked out like Santa!  Another place to try on our next visit.  Also Harmony does have a German Christmas Market in November.  Check it out with the link above.

We then took a stroll back toward the car and stopped in the Museum Shop which also operates as a Post Office.  The Museum was in the process of producing a promotional video and asked if we would be in it.  I declined but The Herbal Husband was game.  So I will try to find out when it will be up on the website.  The videographer looked just like Matt Damon and he said he gets that all of the time and his dad looks even more like him than he does!  It was fun!  And we did have a few retail experiences!

The Subject of Tomorrow's Post!  What's in the Harmony Museum Bag?

A very dreary day in the 'Burgh!  Very winter like without the snow and cold.  Although I hear the cold will be here tonight and tomorrow will be very chilly in comparison to 70 degrees last weekend! We are past the half way point of my 31 days of blogging!  Whew!  Going into the last two weeks and then what?  Well, you will just have to stay tuned!  Frankly I haven't decided yet!  So hope you are having a great day wherever you may be!  Talk to you tomorrow and you will see what treasures are in that shopping bag!
