A favorite casual restaurant. Lunch on the enclosed porch is always fun -- you can watch the world go by as you eat...
The funeral home. Yes, kind of creepy, but it's a great old house, isn't it?
A private home. Wouldn't it be great to be able to walk into town every day?
The Methodist church. Isn't the stone facade beautiful?
The Presbytery. What a gorgeous building!
The florist. Love the window boxes and the little garden out front.
They always have very imaginative decorations on the porch, too.
A gift shop. I just love the little windows!
Hope you had fun. It's a very dreary and rainy day here this morning, so I enjoyed our little stroll in the sun. :) I had an insanely busy weekend, so I apologise for not visiting everyone as I ought. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up with you today. Happy Monday!

Here is what I did yesterday:
5:30am: Stumble out of bed when the cat wails at the bedroom door. My husband sleeps (snores, actually) through the whole thing.
6:10am: Stumble out of bed when the alarm goes off. My husband sleeps (snores, actually) through the whole thing.
7:00am: Cut and plate three batches of brownies for my daughter to bring to school for her friends' birthdays. (She made them the night before.)
7:05am: Drive daughter to school.
7:30am: Wake snoring husband. Actually, I lie. He was already awake and awaiting my return to say good morning. Cat, sensing an opportunity for some head rubbing, jumps up on bed. She is bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, having slept from 5:35am till now.
8:20am: Drive brownies to school. That's right -- my daughter can't lug three plates of brownies through her morning. Right about now, I am beginning to question my sanity.
8:30am: Take a few pictures of town, for potential blog post.
9:00am: Check email. Send some emails for travel soccer. I'm the team manager. Remember this, as it will be important later in the day.
10:00am: Do several loads of wash. Decide to start cleaning out "guest room." First order of business -- go to Home Depot to buy storage unit for many deck furniture cushions that currently reside in guest room.
12:00pm: Put together storage unit and lug cushions out to store them. Start cleaning out guest room (and I use that term loosely -- it's really more of a junk room). This may take awhile.
2:00pm: Take a break to fold laundry. Cannot put daughter's laundry away, due to the fact that her room looks like a bomb went off in an American Eagle store. Decide something needs to be done about this.
3:30pm: Do more laundry. Go to Drug Fair to buy plastic bins to help help sort the clothes in daughter's room. Yes, it really is that bad.
4:30pm: Start sorting clothes. This may take awhile.
5:20pm: Receive call from daughter. She is ready to be transported from track practice to soccer practice. Soccer practice begins at 5:30pm. She has promised a friend a ride home which will make her even more late. Am told to pick them up at lower entrance to track.
5:30pm: Drive right past lower entrance to track. Have to turn around and backtrack. This takes an additional 5 minutes.
5:40pm: Daughter has forgotten shin guards. Must stop at home to pick them up.
5:50pm: Drop friend off at inconveniently far distance from soccer field.
6:05pm: Arrive at soccer field. Realize that we are at the wrong field. Have inadvertently driven to Friday's practice field. I am the team manager -- I'm supposed to remember these things.
6:20pm: Arrive at correct field. Practice is over at 7:00pm.
6:30pm: Drive out of my way to go to supermarket which I have passed at least four times today, to get something to make for dinner.
This is the story of my life. So tell me -- am I losing my mind?
No, don't answer that.

And finally, from Amanda,
