"Time Is Passing"

Where did the last week go? The time is just flying by. Daily visits from this handsome guy are a pleasurable way to spend some of the time.
We have received some much needed rain over the last week. Wonderful to see the lawns greening up.
On our walk last Sunday morning we took the camera along to take some photos of the town to share with Chuck's cousin Chaya. I will share some of them here with you. Be prepared, there are quite a few!
When the new grocery store was built they kept part of the facade from the old bank that had previously occupied this corner.
Great antique store with a cafe inside too.
Lovely old post office. Still has the wooden mail slots for people that pick up their mail here.
Wonderful park where there always seems to be something going on. Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings to concerts a couple times a week.
Good use of an old bicycle!
So many beautiful old homes.
A Bread and Breakfast.
Another great store. Kim, we must pop in here!
The sky was so blue that morning.
Love the balcony over the front door.
Morning Glories in front of one of the churches.
Original horse tie up.
Old coach house.
Love the little glassed in front porch.
Yes, it is starting to feel like Fall here.
 I received a gift certificate for my Favourite Nursery from a neighbour. I took care of their home when they were away. I waited for a month to use it as I wanted to get some mums. Here is one of them on our front step. They are enormous!
Look at the gardens across the street from us. They are put in and taken care of by a local nursery. The neighbours are all wonderful and friendly. We are very blessed. The neighbour on our left side worked at my Favourite Nursery for years. Every Fall he divides a number of his plants and he stated to Chuck he will give them to us. How kind!

We are enjoying living in a small town. It is so handy to be able to walk everywhere. Next weekend is AppleFest here in Brighton. Always so much to do and see. We have a few friends coming to enjoy it with us. We are really looking forward to it. Hopefully the weather cooperates!

If you hung on until now, thanks!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Robin

  1. I love that it's a small community, yet isn't isolated from the larger world and has a lot of influx from big cities like Toronto. That keeps the cosy feeling of the place without (I hope) a lot of the closed-mindedness that comes from old, insular communities.

    I wonder how much of the taxpayers' dollars go for that landscaping. Ha!

    The festival looks terrific, presume you guys will go to the car show. I see there's a dog agility show too, that would be fun!

    It's our fall fair here, on now through the weekend. I've been tempted to make some time to pop down, but I know, just know, I'll burst into tears seeing the horses. There's a mounted police event on now as well at the Kingston Pen -- all the demonstrations would be fabulous to see (plus the RCMP musical ride, though I've seen that 2 or 3 times in years past).

    Anyway, enjoy the day and weekend, and the long-awaited fall weather. :-)

  4. I agree totally with the previous comments!! You sure chose well when you decided to move to your new town. You make me want to move there too. But not for winter, thank you very much.

    Your giant Mums are fantastic. Oh, and I love the neat houses and the facade of the old bank.
    May you have lovely weather for Applefest!!

    1. Hi G.M, we are enjoying our new home very much. If we didn't have winter here we would love to stay here permanently. For Chuck's sake we will have to move somewhere with milder winters eventually.
      Have a good weekend!
